How Ultimate Tri Camp Helped Fuel Her Triathlon Success – Rockstar Loralee Stephens

Rockstar Triathlete: Loralee Stephens

Coaches Notes:

Loralee signed up for Ultimate Tri Camp two weeks before our start date in February, seeking guidance for her first 70.3 event at Gulf Coast 70.3 in May 2024. It was beautiful to see her in person, as she lived in Kentucky. On the first day of camp, we evaluate all the athletes’ swimming, biking, and running skills, providing technique improvements throughout the week. As a newer triathlete with a goal of 70.3, she had much to learn about training and race logistics. During the six days of camp, she gained valuable fitness and practical race day tips, equipping her to apply her new knowledge to the longer race. After Ultimate Tri Camp, she ended up 1st place at several short course triathlons and a 7:00 first-time 70.3

Congratulations on all your success, Loralee! I can’t wait to see what is next for you.
