Incredible!!!! Congratulations to both of you! Jason- so glad you recognized my Fusion Endurance sweatshirt. I had a hard time seeing numbers. Sara- what a day! Kona bound! So excited for you.

Congrats!

This is what a triathlete looks like! An amazing strong and exceptional woman. Bernadette Alexander, at 68 yrs young took on the Marin Sprint and I believe smiled her way through the entire course. Coaching the experienced athlete is one of our loves at Fusion and it takes a different approach. For Bernadette we focused on strength and improving her swim and she flew!!! Onward to better things in 2023! #coachsamisrockstars #passionforperformance #visionforyourfuture #endurancelifestyle #alwayslearning #alwayssmiling ... See MoreSee Less

And that's a wrap on the WC 70.3 2022 version! Kris Segna jumps for joy and the Fusion Women brought the heat conquering the cold, and the hills. All noted that it was the most amazing course they have ever tackled. Onward to 2023 and who wants to go to Finland? This time of year is when we start building that belief and foundation.

1 week ago Fusion Endurance Coaching had 24 team members take on IRONMAN 70.3 North Carolina. It has been a week debriefing and celebrating and that continues this week. As Race Director, my goal is to provide a safe event, a fun event, and one that can be celebrated with friends and family. At Fusion we coach nationally and internationally, but this past weekend, we all came together as teammates. So many pictures to post and we'll continue, but check out these results:

First Time 70.3 Finishers: Jeff Eudy, Briana Salter, Jennifer Walker. Susan Lew, Cay Wallis

70.3 PR's: Jason Agbayani, Kelsey Kinzy, Stephanie Prufer, Coach Brandon Ostrander, Jason Brett (20 min PR!!), Katie Moore, Sarah Froehlich Anderson (almost a 60 min PR))

Huge Bike PR: Melanie Meadows; Leslie Mahon

Relay Teams: Chris Kenon crushing the bike, Cynthia Smart cruising the swim

Joyce Mounce showed resilience and determination and finished after multiple times. We believed together and kept returning each year. 2022 was the year!! So excited for you.

Sara Larson, a Coach and CEO of Spark Endurance had a fabulous day on her way to IMAZ. 5:09 my friend and all while IRONMAN training. Let's get behind her on the way to AZ!

Solid days and enjoyed the process: Everyone, I hope :-). Christine Carmine, Leslie Mahon, Natalie Turner and John Clausen.

Reported it was their best race ever and they raced for something beyond a time: Betsy Block and Tim Gill

Kelli Kerkhoff had a year of growth and that is even better than a 70.3 finish.

What was amazing was seeing how each and every athlete grew through this process. At Fusion, incorporating training into your lifestyle is huge and we know each and every athlete will continue their journey.

And, truly forgot to mention all of the other Fusion Endurance Coaching teammates that were Captains and Volunteers (5 other members). Talk about a team event!!!

thanks Coach Sami Winter!! such a fun experience, loved returning after a 6 year hiatus from this race venue!

You all crushed it!! Nice work, team!!

Congratulations everyone!!!

Coaching is opening up a world of possibilities so that athletes see the beauty of endurance sports and continue to grow within themselves. What a beautiful and perfect Saturday! Melanie tried her first biathlon and love that smile. Sarah PR'ed her sprint and take that for some motivation. Chris rocked it and will believe in her run. Fusion had over 10 athletes racing at WB and cheering for them is the best day I could ever hope for! And our sport is in great hands with young athletes pushing themselves and growing this year! Nothing could be finer! #coachsamisrockstars #passionforperformance #podiumrockstars #perfectsaturday #thefutureisbright ... See MoreSee Less

You’re such a good coach!!!

A small, but mighty Youth/Junior Tri team! Collaborating with Kitty Cole and Trent Hayden of the Cape Fear Tri Club, we were able to put together Wilmington's first Youth/Junior Triathlon Team. And, they take on the Wrightsville Beach Sprint Tri this weekend. So proud of all of these kids and of how they progressed. This was a fun summer watching them grow. Take us out on 3, Go CFYTT! Give these kids the biggest cheers when you see them on Saturday! #buildingoursport #goteamgo #thefutureoftriathlonisbright ... See MoreSee Less
