When I was getting towards the end of the season, the miles and exhaustion was really building. I had already realized Laura was a phenomenal coach with the results I had thus far in riding 20 mph and running almost a 7:00 mile at Red Line, then shattering my previous year’s time in Blue Ridge. During the Augusta training, Laura had grace, understanding, compassion and provided A LOT of required motivation.
in March I decided to work with Laura and knew I had made the right choice. What I did not truly realize but quickly became apparent is the depth of knowledge I instantly had at my disposal. Her willingness to provide a few minutes of time almost any time was priceless…
I re-looked at my Miami results from last year and i shaved almost an hour off my last year’s overall time. I looked at the pro men’s time and they all averaged close to 27 mph on the bike in Miami and 25 MPH for Augusta. So Miami was definitely a faster course and i only went […]
Looking back at this year, you have not only helped me physical, but mental and spiritually. I cannot thank you enough for the positive impact that you have had on my life – I was truly one of the best summers of my life.Wonderful friends and bike rides that I will never forget. So come […]
You, Laura. You believe. You inspire. You make us want to do well, and make you proud (I’m sure that is a bit of all coach/athlete relationships). But I know that I stayed healthy, and well, and moved forward with your patient guidance and counsel. I am so very grateful and appreciative. Coaching takes a […]
For those of you who don’t Laura she is a wonderfully terrific triathlete coach. She coaches athletes from all over the U.S. to compete in triathlons specifically in the 1/2 ironman and full ironman distance… At the conclusion of our Starbucks meeting I figured “Laura knows best” and hired her to prepare me for Augusta 2013!
I had convinced myself that a busy work and travel schedule would prevent me from ever doing a triathlon longer than Olympic distance. But Laura’s coaching convinced me otherwise. With a carefully set plan, and coordination with my travel schedule to accommodate workouts, I completed my first Ironman in Florida in November 2011. Don’t ever […]
This year Laura had the pleasure of coaching Susan to dual AG World Champion titles at the 70.3 and Ironman distances. Susan competes in the 70-74 AG and she is an example to all of the power of belief. The following is a lovely note from her husband, written to Laura after 2011 Ironman World […]
4 months before IM, Laura agreed to take me on as a student. Laura’s training plan was intense but her ability to incorporate her knowledge into my workouts was incredible…
Laura taught me so much this year and her personal approach to each athletes needs really allowed me to excel. Through her coaching, motivation and friendship I matured so much as an athlete…
Thank you very much for the GREAT coaching, council, motivation, encouragement and friendship! These last months have been awesome! I have been more focused, driven and inspired than my entire 14 years of triathlon. Working with you has taught me a lot about my self as a person and an athlete. Thanks to your coaching […]
