Meet The Team: Ironman Pocono Mountains

150 150 Coach P

It’s gonna be chilly, the swim has been cancelled due to the water level and current, and it may even rain a bit.  But this won’t discourage the seven TeamEN members from running into the anticipated chaos of T1, jumping on their bikes, and making the most of race day.  In fact, the feedback from in da Haus has these folks doing a 20 minute or so run before they enter T1.  Brilliant!  No need to get on the bike stone cold.  Literally.

Meet one of these rock stars below.

This is my second summer as part of EN, and my racing has improved. Poconos will be my 4th Half-ironman in the last three years. This year I am just having fun and trying out some things that I did not have the time or energy to do while in grad school.  I am best at the swim (which apparently is not going to help me one bit this weekend!) My bike and run are slowly improving. I am hoping to enjoy the day in the Poconos, spend a nice weekend with my husband and meet some EN teammates for the first time.
