This was my first season training with a coach and the gains I made were tremendous. Looking back I finished my first complete Ironman, PR’ed an Olympic Tri by 13 minutes, PR’ed the Marathon by 6 minutes, and set PR’s for the Half Marathon and shorter distances as well. Combine that with extensive traveling and a crazy career and I can honestly say I never would have been able to do it without Baker coaching me through. Looking forward to next year!
