Ironman Switzerland was another challenging task that I am satisfied of achieving. For us Floridians the only place near Miami to train for the hills is Clermont, so I appreciate that I was able to prepare myself there.
While competing in Zurich, I had the taste of what it is like to bike in the tour the France for just one day.
The scenic green landscapes, the cows with bells in their necks making that sound that I will always remember. The bunch of people cheering and running next to you at the top of Break heart hill, located at the last part of the two laps of the Bycicle course (Just like the one in Boston Marathon a killer almost at the end).
The amazing physical condition of the competitors. This event was mostly raced by man but the few women were just incredible.
I missed the U.S. volunteers they really take care of us, but for the rest, the European Ironman organization was excellent.
The lake was clear water with some currents and the run took us through the historical city.
Today I am sore but happy and
I am deeply touched by the messages of love and support of my couple, trainees, friends and family.
All of you helped me to push myself to improve and get cure.
Having Fibromyalgia and fighting pain each day, took me to this life style and I won't change it for anything else.
I will keep bringing the message of health and positivism through the practice of inner peace, self consciousness, appreciation for little things in life, sports, and healthy eating.
You can also be an Ironsoul.

For the ones who wonder how do I mix #lifecoaching and #training it is important to understand that the ultimate goal of every human being is the #innerpeace and #consciousness of the mind is your awareness at the present moment. When you are aware of something on the outside as well as some specific mental and physical functions happening on the inside. For example, you are aware of your environment, your breathing, your body, your feelings, controlling the pain and fear, at the very same moment that you are riding your bike carefully enjoying the present moment (or running, or practicing pilates, yoga, swimming, core workout, etc), that's equilibrium, that's pure #happiness. Is your moment for active #meditation.
Ironsoul is the symbol that I created to represent that balance or #innerpower within us. And I am proud to teach that to my trainees. IronSoul is the result of my experience as #thyroidcancer survivor and #fibromyalgia patient over 15 years of research and I love to share it with the ones that understand this concept or want to learn it.🙏🙏🙏🙏
