Profession: I’m an Architect who is currently a stay at home mom who loves to swim, bike and run….
soon to be the Community Outreach Operations Manager for the JM Honda Powerhouse of Miami (our family owned store to open by end of this year).
Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? I chose FCC because of their long term coaching philosophy and team integrity, in my opinion these are so unique to the Triathlon community! From the get-go Erinne teaches you the process takes time in order for the athlete to grow as a triathlete. The entire FCC team wants to see you develop and progress, reassuring you this is a continuous learning experience. Working towards your own personal goals in a group environment that constantly challenges you but supports you is a great bonus too. Just when you think you’ve got the “formula,” Erinne and the entire team have more info, insight and knowledge to share and take you one milestone further. With FCC every step of the way there is more learning guaranteed!
Please share your BIG goals: My “A” race this season is Augusta 70.3 on 09/25/2016 (my first 1/2 Ironman) and full Ironman one day!
My successes so far: I went from Sprint distance to International in my introductory season and to the podium in my very first longer distance triathlon at MiamiMan. I managed to overcome a physical setback by applying all the strength, stretching and conditioning recommended by FCC. I have become leaner and stronger and faster by learning more about nutrition and how to fuel my body right.
My swimming has improved dramatically and to prove it here are my results from one year to the next participating in SwimMiami: In 2015 – 1 mile @ 34:11 – 4th AG / In 2016 – 1 mile @ 27:25 – 1st AG
Huntington’sDiseaseTriathlon – Sprint Distance – 2nd Place AG
MiamiManTriathlon – International Distance – 4th Place AG
St. LouisFestival – 5K Run – 1st Place AG
And most importantly PR’s every time 🙂
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon? The role model I’ve become to my children. To be able to share with my kids this disciplined, rewarding and healthy lifestyle is priceless. Leading by example is always motivating and encouraging them to try their hardest. Having kids who are active in sports and compete constantly, triathlons have allowed me to become one of them 😊
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program? “You’ve got nothing to loose, but so much to gain” and of course “You don’t know until you TRI” 😊
I am very grateful for this recognition, it gives me fuel and encouragement for what’s to come 😊
Thank you! I really appreciate it!!! This month marks my one year anniversary with FCC 😉
