I am hesitant to be honest here as I don’t want to share Mary with any other athletes and once everyone finds out how great she is I will potentially lose my edge out on the course. But in all fairness to Mary, she brings tremendous knowledge, focus, energy and most importantly, heart, to the coaching process. She has completely raised my game in all distances from sprint to Ironman and is just an absolute pleasure to work with. She takes a long range perspective on training with an eye towards constant improvement. It has now been 2 years that I have worked with her and I continue to get stronger, faster, and train more effectively than ever before. It has also been more than 2 years since I have had any type of training or race injury – which was not the case at all prior to my working with Mary. She is a tremendous advocate and supporter and also realizes that many of us have families, jobs, travel, etc. that need to balanced in the pursuit of our racing goals. I tend to have a very hectic and constantly changing schedule and she is always open to finding creative ways to fit in training on the road or between other activities. Her love for coaching is contagious and she really helps make the process that much more fun and enjoyable.

I pity the fool, who doesn’t wanna race in the green and blue!”-MjC coach!) I was brand new to the sport with no real connections. No real clue on the proper way to train for something as big as an Ironman Triathlon. Train This has made me a part of a community and this is what I feel is the biggest benefit. Through Mary and Train This I not only get daily workouts but I get daily support. In my short time involved with Triathlon I have realized that the nature of the sport can teach you a lot about yourself, it can help you prioritize your life, your goals, your ambitions. In order to succeed in Triathlon I believe that you need structure, you need a plan, and you need a support system to help you along the way (after all triathlon is an ENDURANCE sport!) and Train This has been all of these things for me…and I’ve only been with Mary for about a Month! Mary’s enthusiasm for life…for sport… is contagious and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for me!bballthe limit! I firmly believe this and intend on making Mary and the Train This team proud in 2010. In my mind having people around you that are into the same thing as you is essential to endurance athletics and LIFE! I am so happy I have become a part of the Train This lifestyle! Prior to being led to Mary by former TT alum and hopefully 2010 teammate Jay H. (my high school skysI have only been with Train This for about one month but I can honestly say that I feel as if I am already a part of the family that they have started. Even without meeting many of the team members in person, I still have had numerous conversations with many teammates through the numerous communications links that Train This utilizes via the internet. The Train This google group that has been established has become an essential part of my daily life. Every email/in person conversation/phone call can bring coaching, humor, friendship, etc…a simple topic on the team forum can stem a daylong back and forth conversation that can be all the difference in making a bad day at work a little more enjoyable. With that said, Train This is more than a Triathlon/Endurance coaching system. Its all-encompassing. Train This has become my motivation, my guidance, my teaching tool. Mary has not only given me workouts that will help me accomplish the goals that we have discussed, but she has introduced me to Yoga, Nutrition, Strength Training; Mary has led me to my new Masters swim class, a Triathlon in Texas, and even to the creation of my own blog, trinitytri.blogspot.com. Train This can be all that you want it to be! Train This will allow you to grow your athletic abilities in a way that suits you. The online training peaks systems allows you to see your planned workouts ahead of time so that you can plan your schedule accordingly since we are all not so lucky as to be professionals but instead must maintain jobs. Mary will work with you on a one-to-one basis in order to provide you with your ever evolving training. Things happen on a daily basis that throw wrenches into our plans.
