“I put books all over my housebooks on training plans, running, and sports nutrition. Having them out where I see them often keeps my goals on my mind. It drives my husband nuts, but theyre there for a purpose.” Her favorite? Slow Fat Triathlete by Jayne Williams.
Rachael loves Asics Nimbus socks so much, she buys a new pair for every race she runs. “Im kinda superstitious about it,” she says. “If I didnt do as well as I wanted in the last race, it gives me a fresh start for the next.”
Training for three sports means loads of workout time. Rachaels husband, Andy, takes care of the kids when shes exercising. He also clears the table so she doesnt graze on the leftovers.
Rachael says shes addicted to racing events and plans vacations around triathlons now. To cheer her on, we arranged for her to get a pair of Sidi T2 Womens Triathlon Shoes and a Speedplay Light Action Titanium Pedal System.
