It takes a lot of motivation from yourself and encouragement from others to get in shape. Imagine how much more it takes to gear up for a marathon, like one as prestigious as the Ironman competition.
I am so proud of my client, Susan Teeple, who will compete in the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas this Saturday in The Woodlands, Texas. This will be her first Ironman, and she has worked so hard to get to this point.
The event, which is expected to last at least 17 hours, includes a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. All in all, 2,800 athletes will cover nearly 140 miles of ground and water on May 17, and Susan will be one of them.
Susan and I have been working up to this point for a year, doing strength training, total body exercises, and TRX training. She has also been training with her Ironman coach, Gary Paul Moore, who has finished nine Ironmen! Susan’s husband, Sloan, has competed in the Ironman before, but this year, it’s all about Susan.
Susan, I am so happy and proud of all the work you have put into your training. Congratulations on setting yourself apart by competing in your first Ironman! You have definitely lived up to the word, overachieve, and others will follow in your footsteps. I know you will finish strong.
