To say that I love this girl is an understatement - we just hit it off really well on a lot of different things. She inspires me every day to be the best version of myself, and boy, does she live it out. Just hold on because you're about to super inspired by this chick I call my friend. The way Rachel and I met was in a women's triathlon group when she posted last year that she was going to be doing Ironman North Carolina, and was a momma of 5 and wanted advice on whether to defer to another race due to the shortening of the bike course.
My first thought was "okay, that one sentence is all I need-she's my hero!" haha! As I learned more about Rachel, I realized that was just the tip of the iceberg. She is a world renowned speaker with her expertise being in small business and online business legalities. As a lawyer and MBA, she is currently helping entrepreneurs all over the world initiate, strategize and implement strategic business and marketing plans through various mediums of consulting resources and legal direction. She also makes all of this work while still having weekly date nights with her husband, being a loving, present, sweet momma, and THIS WEEK her priority is that she is headed to World Championship to represent Team USA. Rachel will compete in the Aquathlon at the Penticton 2017 ITU Multisport World Championships Festival.
Through our friendship, Rachel decided to hire me for her nutrition, and I was honestly truly honored, and this is what she had to say about her coaching experience:
Katie revolutionized my eating. I tried to out run a diet with IRONMAN. Or didn't work. At all. Katie worked with me to get the right numbers. She offered grace and kindness when I faltered but helped me pick right back up. Thanks to her I'm faster, stronger and happier.
The best part about Rachel and her transformation is that she has nothing insane or extreme to make these changes. She has taken GOOD care of her body, and her metabolism is strong. She executed exactly the plans that we had and if anything ever came up that didn't feel right, she let me know immediately and we made changes, and I'm so incredibly excited to see her in action this week at worlds.
Thankful for her friendship and her dedication to her job that inspires me every day! We are doing a podcast soon together, and can't wait to share that with you guys!
