I’ve been sharing my adventures and misadventures on The Anxious Triathlete for almost two years now. And I’ve been thrilled to see the readership grow, the questions roll in, and the feedback from women who have been helped by my willingness to “tri” it first. I love sharing this sport and the mental and physical benefits it promotes. And I want it to be even bigger than it is now. I want this to be a place where women (and men too!) can get their questions answered, their confidence boosted, and their dreams pushed along. So The Anxious Triathlete is about to undergo some changes, and I can’t wait to get you involved.
What can you expect in 2017?
- A newly redesigned website- easier access to newbie content
- New Products designed to support your triathlon journey
- Videos- because they’re super fun!
- Group challenges & contests- because everyone needs support and prizes!
Oh yeah, and I’m launching a monthly newsletter! Subscribers will get early access to videos and products, along with a chance each month to have a 30 minute coaching call with me. For free. Boom. So the next time that annoying little pop up pops up? Put your email in!
Why am I doubling down on this little site of mine? Because I’ve seen first hand the impact triathlon, or heck, just fitness in general, can have on a person’s life. Physical changes are great, but the mental ones are so much bigger. I started this blog in order to help people overcome the mental anxiety of trying something new. That new thing just happened to be triathlon- and I think it’s a great vehicle for helping people get over whatever mental blocks are holding them back in life.
I recognize that insanely long blog posts are not everyone’s cup of tea, nor the most effective way to disseminate information (though I like to think I’m at least a BIT entertaining.) So I will be working to shorten things up at times and introduce new ways of teaching.
What you won’t get here? Extensive gear reviews. Long-distance training plans. Commentary on triathlon political issues (oh yes, they exist, and outside of some 50 Women to Kona support, I’m not going there). Tons of advice on how to swim/bike/run better or faster. If you’re a seasoned triathlete looking to improve your performance, there are a ton of amazing triathlon coaches out there ready to build a better you.
If you’re thinking about tackling your first race but you don’t know where to start, I got you. If you want to find more time to enjoy training by simplifying other areas of your life, I got you. If you want to get over your own sh*t that’s holding you back, if you want to get unstuck in life, if you want to silence those voices in your head that say you can’t do this, oh boy do I got you.
Let’s do this.
