Episode 5: Time to Tri Beginners Luck with Tisa Holley, Matthew LaPointe, Rob Mara, and Saadiq Stewart

The Pointer Sisters got it right with the song, “I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it, I’m about to lose control and I think I like it!”  OHHHH YESSSSSSS!!!

This podcast has had an explosive effect on me and I’m just bursting with gratitude every time I get to chat with a guest. And with this episode,  I’m not sure how I contained myself because I get to chat with four beginners who have four very distinct personalities and journeys!   They are the reason this podcast exists!!!

Oh these stories will have you laughing and feeling inspired, as we chart the pre-race journey for 3 of our 4 guests. If you are thinking about taking the leap to tri, this episode will help you find the courage to make it happen.

Allow me to introduce you to the Accidental Triathlete, Matthew LaPointe; The Avid Cyclist/Runner, Saadiq; The Pinterest Queen, Tisa Holley; and Mr. Zero to 70.3 Rob Mara!

All I can say is put on your googles, clip in, and let’s get ready to roll and run into this episode!
