86 – IRONMAN© Frankfurt - Rachel McBride Professional Triathlete

By Triathlon Coach Terry Wilson

Wow! What an episode. I am able to have returning guest Rachel McBride on the show and we get to really hear what it’s like to have a really tough day, then for it to change for the better. When she describes the first 5K on the run as pretty horrible and says it’s terrifying how horrible it is. She describes this as a nightmare. But something changed in her mindset that left me in awe. The raw emotion of how her mom became her source of energy in this race that gave her a mental edge for the last half of the run is truly remarkable. Not only did she negative split this marathon in an IRONMAN© but she crushed it. Anyone that wants to learn about the use of positive self-talk and mental game can really gain a lot of insight in this episode. - Enjoy the show.
