Sharpie for 2012!

I am super excited to announce that my coach for  2012 will be Carole Sharpless!

Carole is an amazing coach and is one of the most dedicated, knowledgeable, talented, and caring people I have ever met.  I feel so fortunate that I get to work with her this year!!

Triathlon coach

Man.  She is going to kick my butt and whip me into shape for Ironman Mont Tremblant (only 264 days away!)

I can’t freaking wait!

The other great thing about Carole is that after she makes me cry she will make me laugh.  If you don’t follow her blog, you are missing out.  She is the author of one of my favorite quotes (probably because I LOVE pizza).

If you’re going to dream – hell, dream big and go for it! Why not? I dream about pizza. That’s why I order extra-large. If I’m going to do something, I’m going to do it right.        ~ Carole Sharpless

I am looking forward to Carole leading me to a stronger (and funnier) 2012!!!

  4. She actually did a swimming presentation at the TriBella store in Denver this summer! She was awesome and absolutely hilarious! I have actually thought about emailing her about coaching me in swimming, but I chickened out! I have no doubt she will be an awesome coach for you!
