Ironman Florida is Saturday!

The 2014 edition of Ironman Florida takes place this Saturday and NET’s own Julie Lewis will be competing. Go Julie! She has been working hard all summer preparing for her first Ironman event and she is going to be amazing. Read a little more about Julie and then get ready to track her and cheer her on to the finish line on Saturday.

Julie LewisFullSizeRender
BIB#1513

Goggles: Aquasphere Kayenne (Small Fit)
Wetsuit: Xterra Vortex Full

Bike: Cervelo P2
Bike Nutrition: Infinit and Bonk Breakers

Run Shoes: Hoka One One Stinson

Julie is most excited about…
“Hearing my name called when I cross the finish line. You. Are. An. Ironman.”

Julie is most nervous about…
“Getting eaten by a shark.”

To track Julie you can go to http://www.ironman.com and use the Athlete Tracker. Julie will also be wearing a GPS tracker so we can monitor her every pedal stroke on the bike (and possibly step on the run). That link is: http://track.myathletelive.com/VEmap.aspx?name=913941 or you can use the MyAthleteLive app.

Best of luck Julie! NET is proud of you!!!

Welcome Kelley and Summer!

Over the last 4 years NET has seen tremendous growth and I am excited that we now have two assistant coaches. Please help me welcome Summer Koltonski and Kelley Davis to the NET coaching staff!  Summer and Kelley will be helping me with training plans, group sessions, and communication with athletes. With their help, I believe that NET will be able to provide even more quality training to our current and future members.

Meet our New Assistant Coaches:

Kelley Davis011cb71b7709680bc1a292d62e858dee9037dbc074

Kelley is new to Nacogdoches from The Woodlands. She moved here after marrying Dr. Bryan Davis in May. Kelley has had a love for fitness and exercise since high school. Since becoming a “runner” when she was 26, she has ran over 10 half marathons, 3 full marathons, and completed 4 triathlons. Currently she is training for the Houston full marathon and her first Ironman in May. She is excited to help lead, coach, encourage and support the NET athletes and is excited to be a part of the team!

After many years of running 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons, Summer began competing in triathlons in 2012 and she’s never looked back.  The winter after her first triathlon she completed a marathon and she has competed in all distances of triathlon.  So far, her crowning accomplishment has been the completion her first Ironman in May 2014 at Ironman Texas.
Summer enjoys working with all levels of runners and triathletes.  Because she lives in a rural area she is an expert when it comes to training on your own. When not training you will often find her hunting or fishing with friends and family.  Yes, she did wear a camo rain jacket pre-race at the Half Ironman in Galveston and camo clothing during the Tour de Nac bike ride!  Follow her blog at:  http://therusticrunner.blogspot.com/.
