IMMT 70.3

82 – IRONMAN© 70.3 Mont Tremblant – Rachel McBride Professional Triathlete

I only have two episodes dedicated for the wonderful race up in Canada at Mont Tremblant.  Do not let this lack of coverage deter you from going to this race.  This race is now firmly planted on my bucket list.  While I’ve talked to several talented people before, none of these match the kindness, gratefulness, and humbleness of Rachel McBride.  Rachel has been doing triathlons for many years now and is being coached by Jesse Kropelnicki from QT2 Training Systems.  Rachel successfully used this race at Mont Tremblant as a lead up race for IRONMAN© Frankfurt in Germany a few weeks later. Photo credit:  Fred Forgues.
