Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey? By pure chance and a great fortune!

What is your “A” race for this season? Miami Man – November Int’l Triathlon.

Please share your BIG goals: Do a Full Ironman® by the time I am 50 yrs old.

Tell me about your successes so far:  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:

One year ago I smoked, was overweight, and was very stressed with a new start-up.  On June 30, 2017, I decided that health and family life was to be my focus going forward, so that day I smoked my last cigarette as my family and I started a long overdue family vacation.  After 2 weeks of smoking detox, I felt I needed a “carrot” to keep me from smoking so I signed up for a sprint triathlon (Key West Tri).  The idea being that the training would keep me from smoking.  So I googled a Tri Training Plan for newbies and joined Erinne’s Swim Masters class in October of 2017, later to realize I needed a team to train with so I joined Full Circle in December.  It only took a running evaluation by Coach Erinne in December, to get me running a 5k without stopping/walking and I was hooked on Full Circle and Tri Training.

I consider doing and finishing the Las Olas Sprint Tri a huge success and I now have a benchmark to beat on future sprints planned for the year.  Another big success so far, is completing a 5k race this weekend without walking with a PR of 27:10!

Swim – I am swimming faster and longer than ever;  Bike – from never riding a road bike (I didn’t know how/why to use bike gears) to a 19.1 mph average in Las Olas Sprint Tri;  Run – from the KB Lighthouse Run 5k time of 31:05 (run/walk) to the Patches 5k time of 27:10 (PR) without walking!!!

On the Health/Nutrition side I am still smoke free, did Erinne’s prescribed “Gut Cleanse” in January and have lost 10 lbs since October of last year.  In terms of biggest Goal achieved – finishing my first triathlon (Las Olas Sprint) in under 1 hr and 30 min, which I finished in 1 hr 24 min.

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:
1.  Erinne’s evaluations, especially the swimming and running.
2.  The “Gut Cleanse” to start the year.
3.  Training with my new family, the Full Circle Team, which supports, pushes and encourages you to get better and faster while still having fun.

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon? Being called an “athlete”  🙂

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
“Just do it,” it will change your life for the better.
