I joined TLV in February 2012 when I turned 50 years old. I knew nothing about triathlons and had zero swimming experience. Basically I was a middle aged woman in search of a goal and a challenge. Six months after joining TriLaVie I successfully completed a half ironman triathlon and two years later completed a full Ironman. I don't believe any of that would have been possible if I had not joined TriLaVie. However the best part of TriLaVie is not just the coaching, training plans and all of the knowledge that I have gained over the past couple of years from being a member of TriLaVie...no the best part of TriLaVie is the team itself. The camaraderie and support of the women on the team sets TriLaVie apart.
