Coach Erinne’s Notes: Steve is an amazing athlete. He never gives in to any setback and hits every training session rain, shine or cold. We were all concerned with his heart condition, but instead of it being a setback he has come through surgery stronger and faster than ever. He just set a new personal record at Miami Man 2018 and is hitting new speed goals for his long course goal of breaking 12 hours at his next Ironman®. The best part about Steve is his sense of humor and sarcasm- he always makes the team laugh and we love having him on our Team. Steve you will no doubt achieve your next goal and any others you have set for yourself. Thanks so much for choosing Full Circle as your Triathlon Tribe!
Meet Steven Bolitho, Full Circle Coaching Rockstar Triathlete
Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? FCC was recommended to me by a friend who passionately sold me on the virtues of Erinne and her coaching expertise. (Thanks Jose) its now been over 6 years that I have been with FCC and its still going strong.
What is your “A” race for this season? Ironman® Texas and SOS Triathlon NY
Please share your BIG goals: I am trying to go Sub 12 hours at Ironman® Texas.
Tell me about your successes so far: I have finished approximately 30 races including Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full Ironman® events, 2 mile swims and a plethora of run distances. My last Ironman® I finished in 12:22 and look forward to beating that time.
What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for the each of the following? Swim: Bike: Run: Nutrition/Health: Please include any Personal Records and Goals achieved: My swim time has gone from 2:30/ 100 pace to 1:45/100 pace; Bike average power went from 190 to 210 watts and my run times have remained constant despite some setbacks. What everyone needs to understand is I achieved these goals after having an ablation surgery to control A-fib and being diagnosed with a bicuspid heart value with an ascending aortic aneurysm. Erinne remained not just supportive when I received this news and went through surgery but also actively assisted in helping me control some of the side effects including breathing difficulties and elevated heart rate. I am absolutely convinced I would not only have given up this sport when I was given my diagnosis but also reverted to an unhealthy lifestyle without her support, understanding and coaching.
What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon? The feeling of achievement continues to drive me and every time I race I look forward to seeing my improved results.
What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program? Stop procrastinating and take the leap.
