A personal story from Miranda:
Although I grew up being active and playing many sports, I never saw myself as a runner. In 2005 I was able to witness the Ironman finish line for the first time. It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time, but I decided that it was something that I wanted to experience.
I had not swum more than a couple laps, I only owned a bulky hybrid, and I had not run further than a mile. But my belief in myself, cultivated through a strong faith, regular meetings with other encouraging women, and many amazing triathlon mentors resulted in the confidence that I could accomplish anything that I put my mind to. Over the next four years I prepared for and ultimately completed Ironman WI through hours of (very humbling) hard work and determination.
As a trainer and coach I hold my clients to high expectations of self-discovery that will ultimately lead to the belief that they will accomplish any goal they set their mind to as well. I believe that all goals are significant and attainable through faith, honesty, and love for oneself and others.
