The weekend of October 15th and 16th of 2022, the city of Waco, TX will host it’s second annual Ironman Festival. Saturday October 15th the city will host the full-distance Ironman race and on Sunday October 16th they will host the Ironman 70.3 race.
To bring awareness to the sport, The Great Waco Sports Commission, with the help of several generous sponsors, provided 6 deserving athletes with scholarship to pursue their Ironman dreams. Those scholarships included, but was not limited to, race entry fees, access to coaching and training facilities.
In this episode we hear from two of the deserving athletes. Jessie Patterson and Makayla were kind enough to take a break from their training to share how things are going and some insight into how we all can make a difference.
Because she is very passionate about the environmental impact of everyday actions, Makayla gives us a lesson in sustainability. She explains some of the efforts that they are making to reduce unnecessary waste from ending up in landfills. She breaks it down for us in 3 simple steps: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
We talk about training, how they are feeling, bikes and they take a few minutes to thank those that have provided support.
