Mindset, motivation and multiple sports, the Tri Me Tapes are the audio journal of an amateur athlete, Abi Dawson.  Seeking a new challenge and an opportunity to improve her mindset Abi made the commitment to try new sports and compete.  Initially, she identified triathlon as a true test of grit, physicality and most importantly mental fortitude.  Join Abi and her partner in crime Matt as they discuss the journey to competition, the highs, the lows and lessons learnt along the way.  In this tape of Tri-MeTapes Podcast, we unpack the relationship between coach and athlete, overcoming excuses and how to take life lessons from bike crashes.  If you are a new listener to The Tri Me Tapes, we would love to hear from you.  Please visit our (Facebook Page) and share your athletic adventures!
