I started running when I was in my 30s to get some exercise in after having 3 children. I was interested in triathlons, but thought it was only for the elite pros that go to Kona. At a half marathon, I met a lady that said that she did triathlons. She told me how she could barely swim but was able to get through the race. Well, I can sort of swim and I’ve ridden a bike since I was 5, so in 2018, I gave it a go. I was hooked! I loved the variation of workouts and the triathlon people I met were so friendly.

I joined a tri team and pushed myself to go further and faster. I’ve done many sprints, Olympics and ½ Ironmans. I also completed 6 Ironmans. On the 5th Ironman, I was so exhausted from the constant pushing during the trainings that it finally all fell apart during the race. I barely dragged myself across the finish line. I was so discouraged and almost gave up altogether. Then I heard about TriDot Training.

I signed up with the PSP in November 2017. I couldn’t believe how good I felt after my trainings and how much more free time I had to spend with my family.

I completed my 6th Ironman using TriDot. I had my best bike time by almost an hour PR, and my finishing time was only 5 minutes off my PR Ironman time. And best of all, I felt good afterwards!

TriDot has helped me to love my triathlon training and racing again. Trust the process, the program really works!
