I just wanted to say a big thankyou to Geelong Performance Coaching and especially Coach Kate on her coaching, I have been a member now for just on 5 months and been coached by Kate for the same time.

Even though I live in Lorne and don’t really get to any of the group sessions, each of the races I’ve been to, GPC has welcomed myself and my family with open arms which makes it a little less stressful on race day with a family of five,

My improvement from last weekend’s Gatorade Olympic distance race has made me want to push even harder at training towards my goal of completing my first full ironman, and with the support and guidance of GPC I am confident of this.

Looking forward to a great year, and my next race at Geelong 70.3.
