Welcome to The Why We Tri Podcast Website!
Have you ever looked at a triathlon and thought:
THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE!
I thought the exact same thing until about 5 years ago when I set out on a mission to "tri" and do things I NEVER thought I could!
In October of 2018, my 75 year old independent Mother of Unionville, Connecticut, Kathleen K. Gardner, lost her fight against an infection in just under 10 days of entering the hospital. Today, I realize I was fortunate to be by her side during her last days. Upon returning to Miami there were days I could not get out of bed and attend to my 3 daughters who were in great need of their Mom. My WHY was deflated.
Finding self motivation when the world beneath you is crumbling seems impossible. In triathlon, you must be in the present moment at all times. One second of losing focus and you could be underwater, flown off your bike or trip and fall.
My 3 daughters needed their Mom back and I needed my WHY back. Small attempts back into the pool to swim, on the bike to cycle and out on the track to run, I was surrounded by a WORLD of triathletes through Iron man, who all shared their incredible stories with me. These stories inspire me to get back up, keep going and SHARE:
