Never-Quit-Norcini Rockstar Triathlete

Coaches Notes:

I LOVE Marty’s approach to Ironman training and racing. Once he makes a commitment, he shows up 100% even when things go wrong. He never throws in the towel and takes action immediately to find a solution.

A neuroma popped up on his ramp-up to Ironman Roth Training, but that did not hold him back from getting the necessary training. We were able to train the volume in his run on the elliptical instead of beating his foot up on the road, and he went and raced Ironman Roth successfully with a walk/ run.

Congratulations, Marty- you are a Rockstar Triathlete. Let’s strengthen those feet and eliminate the neuroma for the next one!

What is your age?

What is your profession?:
Financial Advisor

Why did you choose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?
Reputation for having great coaches and group training with a team.

What was your “A” race for this season?
Challenge Roth, 2023

What are your BIG goals?
To maintain good physical condition through the rest of my life so that I can stay involved with triathlons indefinitely.

Tell me about your successes so far!
As I get older, successes get redefined. Not getting injured during training is the biggest challenge. Being able to start a full distance Ironman feeling in optimal condition is “as good as it gets”.

What were some of your most significant improvements in performance?

  • Swim: Swimming is where I see my biggest improvement. Not just based on pace, but also feeling that my form is improving a little bit after each training session.
  • Bike & Run: Both bike and run performance have been hampered by my foot neuroma. Biking at a higher cadence has helped ease the foot pain, and running with more forward lean has shifted the landing pressure point and extended the time before the neuroma pain really sets in. Both higher bike cadence and running lean are techniques that Erinne has always stressed, but it took an injury to realize that they work!

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

  1. Trust the coaches, they really know what they are doing.
  2. Recover when your plan tells you to or your body will force it to happen!
  3. No more than 2 beers a day LOL.

What excites you the most about being involved in triathlon?
The support I feel with everyone training together and supporting each other!

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?
The coaches know how to get anyone across the finish line. With all of their collective coaching experience, they can provide a customized training program to match any personal goal.
