TRI Movie Review

Recently I was invited by Red Zeppelin Productions to a private screening of their narrative feature film about triathlons, TRI.

The film follows main character, Natalie, an ultrasound tech and "chronic quitter" as she takes inspiration from cancer patient Candice, a triathlon event coordinator, and registers to complete the Nation's Triathlon. She is introduced to the world of triathlons through her training team who will help her face her fears and guide her to the finish line. 

The film is about more than triathlons though. It is also about raising awareness for those who have been touched by cancer. It is about the strength and hope that can be gained from each other. It is about having compassion. It about giving yourself a chance. You never know what you can do until you try.

TRI is a movie that will definitely appeal to those of you thinking about completing a triathlon for the first time. Veteran triathletes out there will also enjoy the storyline because it will remind you of your own beginning. The movie will also inspire you to go after your goals, whatever they are, and encourage those in your life to fight for theirs. 

The film was released in the US and Canada on Amazon, Google Play, iNDEMAND, and other platforms on December 13, 2016 ---> could make a great Christmas gift! (but here)

It will also be available in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland on January 23, 2017.

You can find out more about TRI at the website

Fitness Friday: The 4 Minute Mile

About a month ago, I found out about a great running movie called, 4 Minute Mile.

Ever hear of it?

It's an inspirational movie about a high school track star who struggles to stay focused when he has to deal with family problems. His resolve to achieve his dreams are within reach with the help of the right coach until a tragedy threatens to impede his goals.

I won't tell you how it ends. You'll have to watch it for yourself to find out if he can run a four minute mile.

This movie has a great message about barriers. Personal barriers. The things that hold us back from what we want to achieve. It got me thinking about the barriers in my own life. The fears. My fear of failure, judgement, the unknown, change. While I would like to think (and tell others) that I can get past my barriers, my fears, all on my own…it wouldn't be true. I have been able to chase my dreams and reach my goals because of the coaches in my life. 

On this Valentine's Day eve, I would like to say thanks to my favorite "coach", mrC. Without you, I would have never run a half marathon (let alone 12!), tried SUP, or started this blog. Thank you for all of your encouragement and for believing in me. 

Who is your COACH?
