Stephanie Crews YOU are an Ironman! This is a FIRST time Ironman and what a huge accomplishment for her 🙂
Billy Lloyd toed up to the line and was ready until he decided it wasn’t his day in the water…..guess what Billy, you will soon still be an Ironman….the sport is still allowed to humble us! Great job!
Coach Sami coaches many of these athletes and this is what she had to say: “As a coach, yesterday was filled with emotion and learning. Having completed 12 Ironman events, I understand and have lived this quote…In an Ironman, “all human plans are subject to ruthless revision by nature or fate.” An Ironman or any endurance event takes patience, determination, willpower and mental toughness that sometimes even you doubt. Yesterday, I watched my athletes become first time Ironman, have 30 min PR’s, struggle through nutritional issues and learn from their anxiety. Success can be defined in so many ways; I think success in life is having a positive impact on the lives of people by inspiring them to think and act in ways and accomplish goals they may not have thought possible. Helping others to achieve their dreams in life. Congratulations Brian Bohrer, Steve White, Erin Jackson, Lori Drake and Billy Loyd for allowing me to help you grow as a person yesterday. I am so proud of you. Congratulations to Erin Green, my Ironman buddy and Stephanie Crewson getting it done. Now we rest :-))) Can’t wait to talk to everyone today andRyan Redd and I shared some awesome phone time yesterday. To the some best sherpas ever, Ryan, Shawn Rhodes and Jacqui White. Y’all rock!”
