318 – IRONMAN© Chattanooga – Emily Rollins

Emily executed her race plan almost to perfection. She nailed her nutrition and hydration and raced with patience and persistence. She almost had the perfect race and we talk about what makes this race something to continue to keep striving for perfection.  The unique and challenging dynamic relationship of coach and athlete paired with husband and wife is something I have talked with Kelsey Withrow about as well as Amy VT.  I hope you learn something from this episode.  Enjoy the show.
