Featured Athlete / Holiday Hours
Twelve months ago, Julie Burke bought a bike. She didn't know how to swim, rarely ran, and had a basic elementary school perception of cycling. That didn't stop her from making the 2009 season her inaugural debut as a triathlete. Burke worked her butt off, and found herself at her first sprint triathlon last May. The race was held in her hometown of Effingham, Illinois where her friends and family were thrilled to cheer her on as she won her division in her first race. She was now part of that sick group we all know and love, tri-addicts. Her new passion led her to compete in three more races last season. One of the three competitions led her to the podium once again, capturing first in her age division.
Learning to swim, bike, and run in one year is a tall order for anyone. What made it more difficult for Julie was her constant struggle with fibromyalgia, chronic piriformis syndrome, a broken ankle, and a torn ligament in her shoulder. She worked through the pain and prevailed.
No stranger to hard work, Burke graduated from University of Illinois at the top of her class. Her 25 year career as a purser for American Airlines has her travelling to Europe and Asia at least four times per month. She is a mother to three boys; Charlie 11, Adam 13, and Patrick age 16. She and her husband Brian have been married for 19 years. When not working, training, or running the boys around, Julie enjoys skiing, snorkeling, going to Dallas Cowboys games, and seeing plays.
Next season, Julie plans on focusing on longer distance races. She will compete in her first Olympic and half-iron distance competitions. Go Julie!! We know you can Endure It!!!!!!!
The store will close at 2pm on Christmas Eve and reopen 10am December 26th.

New Coaching Opportunity!
Endure It! is now offering a new coaching program!!!!
Endure it! has offered coaching since its inception. However, we have had numerous requests to expand our offerings with more price points and options. Pro tiathlete, Jenny Garrison, and endure it! founder David Fix will be offering a fantastic value package with options for sprint/Olympic, Half Ironman, and Ironman!
The new coaching format will run for 20 weeks starting Monday January 4th. Athletes will receive each program the first of every month via email. We will offer feedback, Q and A, group motivation, and open dialogue each Monday evening at endure it! for those who need it and to ensure you are getting the most out of your season.
The 20 week program is meant to help you either get back into shape, build you into peak season, and help balance your training. Most people without a coach end up always working on their strengths. With a specific written program it will force you to balance all the sports out and incorporate the different phases of training. Your training will include workouts with anaerobic efforts, strength intervals, and anaerobic endurance. Things that we tend to overlook. We will also cover basic strength and plyometric exercises at meetings.
The program offers real value and personal feedback from coaching professionals who have excelled in every distance and deeply understand what it is like trying to "fit it all in!"
The cost of the program is 20 weeks for:
Jenny Garrison, USAT Level 2 Certified, Professional Triathlete
