Never say…Never! Here is a girl who will give you inspiration to just get out there and do it and see where it takes you. I have been lucky enough to watch her evolve and have witnessed her determination, commitment, and her ability to see how to make the journey easier on herself. I couldn't be more proud of her!
Here is what she has to say…
I have never really been athletic or into fitness but about 2 years ago I decided to do a 5K and that turned into triathlons. In the past year and a half I completed my first 5K and completed 4 triathlons. I made a decision to tackle the big dog, St. Anthony’s, an Olympic distance triathlon, 1 mile swim, 25 mile bike, and 10K run.
One day I saw an awesome deal for Get-a-Grip boot camp. I already had a gym membership but thought I might need some extra help achieving my new triathlon goal. I started with Carrie in January not really sure what to expect and if it would honestly pay off towards my end goal. When I started I could swim about a quarter mile. After one month I had doubled….Doubled my swim distance. That is when I knew I had to keep going and I continued my membership.
After only 2 more weeks I was swimming two-thirds of a mile. I could not believe how fast my swim distance was improving. Almost every week I walked into boot camp with a new distance I had achieved. On May 1st I completed St. Anthony’s!!!! One of my proudest moments ever and I have to thank Carrie for helping to make me both physically and mentally stronger and for being a great motivator! Thanks Carrie for helping me achieve one my biggest and toughest goals.
