12:06 Roth Ironman in 12 weeks – Rockstar Tim Dare

Rockstar Tim Dare

Coaches Notes:

Tim got started very late with his training for Ironman Roth, but since we have worked together before, I knew he had so much race skill from years of racing and training for long endurance events. I was sure that if he got serious he would be fine to achieve the goal of finishing strong and feeling good.

Since he lives in Savannah, Georgia, and is a busy dad and physician assistant, a detailed, organized training plan that is simple to follow was key. Almost all of his 12 weeks in training peaks calendar was green and he even lost an extra 10 lbs to make racing that much easier. Way to go, Tim, 12:06 is fantastic. You are a Rockstar Triathlete! Now we are on to North Carolina 70.3 with a sub 5-hour goal time! Let’s Go!


What is your age?

What is your profession?:
Physician Assistant in Savannah, Georgia

Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
Full Circle Coaching and Erinne have been a part of my life and training for over 20 years.  There is no replacement or better team for me in preparing for all the adventures I choose to challenge myself with from all distance triathlons, including 3 Ironman triathlons, 100 mile mountain bike races, including (Buckling) Leadville x 2, or even just the challenges of life….Erinne and her team have been there….all in!

What was your “A” race for this season?
Challenge Roth a few weeks ago.

What are your BIG goals?
Create Memories with Epic Adventures.

Tell me about your successes so far!
I win every race I enter, at least in my mind. Haha

What were some of your most significant improvements in performance?
I got started training for Roth very late. Erinne put together a training program for me, and in 3 months, I got close to my PR (Personal Record) from 10 years ago.

I completed Roth in 12:06, feeling amazing the whole race.

Using her holistic nutrition suggestions, I also lost 10 pounds without sacrificing energy for the long training sessions.

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

  1. Staying Healthy by following my training plan and paying attention to my numbers
  2. Staying Healthy by having balance in my life
  3. Listening to Erinne

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
Making Memories and Telling Stories.

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
Mike Tyson said….”Everyone has a plan until you get punched in the face”
