Why I Started Triathlon Training
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.
