My few pictures represent what this morning Beat the Bird run means to me! Helping to build a community and tradition around a sport I love #running from 40 to 640 runners in 6 years. I will lead by example for my children that giving and standing up for others matters #runforhopekids. I in developing this race have a bigger family than my own @timrylander @billthemortgageguy @braxton_bokos @prestonbokos @jroodaddy @rosedumford @samdumford @aebigfish @betsybruns @endureitbird and so many others that have come into my life and supported me to be better than I thought possible. I always love the idea of spreading joy and laughter and I think when I saw all those families enduring the run together we did just that. Finally, the conduit to give back to people that need just a little more to thrive Chicago Hope kids we are doing that.

Rise and shine- to swim, to bike, to run to finish! The Endure It Athletes tore up Ironman Arizona yesterday- such a great day – pretty much speechless! Award of the day has to go to @lesleymarcusbrown Lesley Brown and @jeanquinn2040 Jean Quinn – they stuck by each other’s side all day long, Lesley started feeling very sick so Jean stayed close all bike ride and then Jean started to crumble on the run so, Lesley and Jean tagged team pushing each other along. In the end Jean coaxed Lesley to leave her so, she could make the cut off! The story makes me want to cry- actually, I am crying! Amazing team spirt and testimony to the fact triathlon is not a selfish sport at least not at #endureitsports. Then @heather_w_glynn Heather Glynn who showed up to qualify and her age group was ridiculously fast. But, she did not throw in the towel she actually raced the whole way knowing she might not get that spot! She did IM only 6 weeks ago, holy crud- tenacity! Then a shout out Tooooo- a run into 10 th place finishing just a few minutes past 12 hours – my girl big bad @betsybruns Betsy Bruns #followingsarafixcoachingtoaT – Endure It showed everything it had yesterday – Erik and I are thankful and proud Go Team and I think we got the club award!!!!!(fingers crossed) 😘🤸🏼‍♀️❤️🥂🥂🥂🥂🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🍾🍾🍾🍻get some rest-Beat the Bird will be your recovery run!

I wanted to take time each day to recognize the Endure It athletes that are racing #ironmanarizona. I typically don’t do this because I am there to celebrate them face to face and cheer them on. Clearly Beat the Bird is keeping me away! BTW, Don’t forget to sign up – anyway there are a few more athletes racing under the Endure It umbrella but, this person needs a definite shout out! She is officially along with Katie Dumford coach on deck for the Endure it athletes, @heather_w_glynn Heather came into our Endure It life several years ago and it took a long time to gain her trust. But, working for her trust was so worth it as she is the most loyal and the best team player there is in the sport. She is open to everyone, she has great friends on lots of teams, she supports everyone but, we are lucky to have her as a coach and Endure It athlete. She is a role model and great asset for our athletes. So, I could not make Arizona and this year Katie and Heather have rallied and bonded this AZ crew. I hope you all can add her to your prayers, thoughts and cheers. Heather raced IM a few weeks ago and had some really bad luck on the bike course striping her of her chance to qualify for kona! So, who does this…. not me, she rallied in a months time to get her act together and try again. She deserves this, she works hard, she manages a ton, she is mom of the year and keeps showing up and nailing her workouts. Heather we are all cheering, shouting and I have everything crossed(fingers, toes, arms,legs) that Sunday goes perfect. So, here is cheers to one of the kindest, tenacious, humble, steady, loyal, consistent, talented women I know! Hope you here me cheering! #ironman #roadtokona #kona #champ #swimbikerun #ironmanaz #endureit #rolemodel #kidsprogram I wanted to take time each day to recognize the Endure It athletes that are racing #ironmanarizona.

I will start this post by stating: “ the middle right pic is not me and the middle left is not @davidfixendure they just like dressing up like us!” Bare with me again as I send the ancient engines off to Ironman Arizona. I can say ancient as they are not as old as me yet! I think I still have 5 years on them(except Lesley Brown)! But, they are ancient in that they have been at Endure It since almost its inception! I did not come to Endure it in the early years- I was so intimidated I stayed home with my babies and my trainer! But, Katie Dumford who was friends with David being a life swimmer dragged all her friends into the shop! They all trained and raced for Endure It well before me, I had no idea what it meant to bleed blue- why it mattered if all the athletes wore the kit- This was not my world! But, I came in to lend a hand and this group stayed tried and true- Endure It changed – David their “Halloween Costume” left returning to finance, the EI they knew took on a new shape- one thing literally actually 4 things have remained the same Katie Dumford and her wild and crazy back up band have stayed the course, Lesley Marcus is a fixture through and through at Naperville, Tad Friess is still a coach and Erik Walter remains the one really in charge! One more thing that has not changed from Willowbrook, to the LIFE store til today THEY LIVE FOR DISCOUNTS and katie ❤️ full price! So, I look back at 15 years of photos of Katie Dumford, Maggie Slosar Burke, Lisa Blazevich, Laurie Olsen and Lesley Brown one thing is for sure you see one of them you are bound to see “the others” or at least one of “the others.” So, I asked them why and how do you do it? Keep the band together! Their answers are the best and I think echo the spirit of Endure It as it should they are the founding Endure It Energy. Ironman is a gift – it just keeps giving -It gives back more than it requires because IT GIVES ME ALL OF YOU #getitdone #Ironman #IMAZ #Arizona I will start this post by stating: “ the middle right pic is not me and the middle left is not @davidfixendure they just like dressing up like us!” Bare with me again as I send the ancient engines off to Ironman Arizona.

Send off week has come to an end and all my #sarafixcoaching athletes have their strategy for Ironman AZ. They are hitting the road as I write and I pray all things will go perfect for all of them. I started coaching all 6 of them except Jean the same year!!! 2016/17 between the 6 of them can you guess how many Ironman races they have done – So in 3 years these 6: @peanuts2448 , @cristilwhite @jeanquinn2040, @coley_cartier, Rob Bowman and @christina_marie_fleming have gotten on ….drummmmroolll 24 Ironman start lines. I am beyond proud of them. This crew keeps the Endure It team on their toes and outrace all of us. I love the bond and the friendship they have created with one another. I think it will be safe to say with as much time as they spend together they most likely will all finish very close to one another! My guess they will complete the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run close to the 14 hour mark. I secretly have, maybe not so much a SECRET anymore – as I confess, I think Jean at 65 years young may take a top spot and possible kona qualification (IMWC) no pressure Jeanie. The podium has become home for jean as she just gets faster! I have also been on almost every start line cheering them from Texas to Wisconsin to Michigan to Florida and breaks my ❤️not to see this one- I know we will get PRs and epic finishes as we have pushed through some injuries this year! Wishing all of you and the other Endure It athletes seamless races including 2 of our awesome coaches Katie Dumford and @heather_w_glynn Go get em troop this is your race to GET! I hope you hear me screaming and yelling! Wind at your backs- love you all😘 #ironmanarizona #arizona #jimbeitzel #northwesternconsent #chicagorecoveryroom #timrylander #ImpactPT #endureit #endureitsports #ironman #swim #bike #run Send off week has come to an end and all my #sarafixcoaching athletes have their strategy for Ironman AZ.
