12 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Campeche - Kitty Cole

This episode is with the Kitty Cole about her race day down in Campeche, Mexico.  Kitty talks about how her first marathon and Easter Island. She has also completed Seven Marathons on Seven Continents. Kitty talks about some details of how the travel and logistics went as she traveled from the United States down to Mexico and the adjustments she would make in the future for this race.  Kitty is from Wisconsin and being this is an earlier season race that tends to be warm, there were some issues she conquered along the day on the course.  She talks about her nutrition plan and the challenges she faced.  In the end she walked away with a slot for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship down in South Africa. She highly recommends getting out of your comfort zone.  Because of this, she often goes in to the local places that many folks do not wonder to in foreign cities, and she noted how safe she felt when she was alone or even with her friend.  It was a remarkable experience for her and she highly recommends travelling there.  This is not a touristy city, but a true Mexican race that has a deep rooted heritage and a friendly atmosphere where people love to help anyone out. She gives some tips for the bike course as well.  Enjoy the show. To see pictures from her race, go to
