I signed up with Coach Greg to tackle my first Ironman. I had been racing for 2 years but had hit a wall with speed and distance. My program and the constant coaching got me through that wall, and brought me to exactly where I needed to be on race day. I finished IM Lake Placid and met my goals thanks to Coach Greg..

Looking forward to connecting soon.
