34 - IRONMAN© Texas - Nicole Garner

In this episode of the Pursuit of the Perfect Race I talk with my friend Nicole Garner about her recent experience at IRONMAN© Texas in The Woodlands, Texas that was on April 28, 2018.  This episode is a must for anyone that wants to hear what it’s like to become a first time finisher at an IRONMAN© event.  Nicole talks at length about the details of her race day and the raw emotion of her finish line experience.  We walk through her entire race where she shares valuable insight for other first timers to learn from.
