50 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Chattanooga – Ali Hooker

I conclude the Chattanooga 70.3 series with my friend and athlete Ali Hooker.  Coming back from a previous DNF at Ironman Boulder 70.3 last year, this year’s finish was truly sweet.  She talks about her personal struggles with the recovering from a DNF, building confidence through training, then the amazing hug at the finish line of Chattanooga from her brother Craig.  The emotions she shares is something that a lot of us can learn from when we encounter new races. We talk about some of the key points of her training with heart rate going into this race.
