Ironman® Arizona

Al Truscott (photo at left) crossed the finish line in 11:25. You can read his race report here.  He also said “Coach Rich was there to provide quiet help a total of 10 times along the course during race day; and Coach P laid down the breadcrumbs on his comeback trail for me to follow. They are coaches in the true sense of the word – they don’t tell you what to do, so much as show you the way to go.”

David Lesh (photo at right) PR’d with a time of 10:23:02.  Members can read his race report here.  He also said “In only a year team EN took me from an absolute beginner triathlete to finishing my first Ironman. I learned so much from both the coaches and the team members and it was awesome having the support of the team on race day. Thank you for making my first Ironman® journey such a wonderful experience.”

Jennifer Eckert earned a PR with a finish time of 13:33:38 and said “How do you go faster when you’re 5 years older?  Train with Team EN!  Thanks you guys…maybe I’ll have a shot at that Kona slot when I turn 60!!”  Members can read her race report here.

Jeremy Behler completed his first Ironman® in 10:06:12.  You can read his race report here.

Jonathan Needell (photo at left) also raced his first Ironman® for a finish time of 13:48:41.  Members can read his full race report here, but he said of the experience “I overlapped a coach and EN and found out EN was right when I was injured during a typical build period eight weeks before the race. EN only next race.”

Stephanie Stevens earned a new PR with a time of 13:13:00 and said “Still have room for improvement, but I know where that improvement needs to come from.  Thanks RnP!!”

Paul Stone completed the race in 12:20:18 for a new PR and said “Without the execution guidance from Endurance Nation I would not have finished my first IM at all.  But to come back and have a great second IM proves the coaches have something great going. I’m glad to be a part of a great community and team.  Thanks guys.”

Terry Olivas PR’d as well with a time of 10:29:49 and said “There’s no way I could have made it to the top 10% of the M40-44 age group without EN.  How many PR’s can one person have?”
