Today I’m going a few easy miles with runner and triathlete (and Ironman!) Erin Freel.
The decision to start running was one that Erin credits with saving her life.
Erin has lost over 100 pounds since the start of her running journey, and she’s not planning to slow down anytime soon!
A Mental Game 3 Fold
Running a marathon is tough enough on its own.
The mental endurance needed is to run a marathon as the last leg of an Ironman is something that I can’t even wrap my brain around!
Erin has seen some things in the various races she has run or spectated, and the common trait always seems to be that those that finish simply refused to give in when things got hard.

Getting into the Game
Erin’s journey toward endurance sports started while she was planning a joint birthday party/wedding. But the idea of being
She knew she’d be in a lot of pictures that night, and she wanted to lose some weight before the festivities began.
Erin started by walking on a treadmill, and she gradually built up to running.
After the wedding/birthday party, Erin was determined to keep going with her new healthy routines.
Erin decided to write a book after she reached her weight loss goal.
Erin took the journal that she kept throughout her journey and turned it into her book Fat to Fit at 40.
The book chronicles the trial and error that Erin experienced during her weight loss journey.
All of the ups and downs are detailed in the book, and it serves as a reminder that achieving a big goal may not be easy but definitely possible if you just keep making a little bit of progress every day.
