Personal achievements: IM finisher in 2011 and 2013

My goal from the outset was IM 2011 Finishing Line and crossing it, that was the easy part, without a coach I can only imagine it to be a very hard and lonely experience.
I have worked with many coaches in the past, Barb Kramer you are the best :) why, because you truly care, you give it 100% and yep you are alongside me when its pissing down with rain at 6am ready for a Swim then a Bike ride and then a run....when choosing your coach just think about that, I can save you a lot of hassle meeting other coaches just give Barb a buzz. Barb will keep you fully on track, will challenge you on your thoughts, will give you so much more and make it work for you. A coach is only as good as the plan and Barbs knowledge, experience and dedication works.
I had a few niggles along the way - spoke to Barb and the next day the programme was re-jigged. How many coaches out there can truly give you that level of attention! Barb really knows her stuff, from what to eat, how to juggle work and when to push/pull back. Thanks for being a big part of my first IM journey…"
