Leadman 125 Triathlon
I had the pleasure and honor of scheduling 5 time Ironman Champion, Heather Gollnick, to speak on behalf of Las Vegas Cyclery. Heather graciously agreed to speak just a few days before the epic Leadman 125 Triathlon in Las Vegas. I know how hectic it can be, preparing for a race, travel, adjusting to a different time zone, and still being focused on having the best race possible. Heather proceeded with the grace and sparkle of a true Champion. She spoke to a group of over 20 triathletes, and made it a point to make each and every one feel like a long lost friend. Heather has the dynamic and gracious personality that one can only wish for.
I met Heather in March of 2004, right before the start of my first triathlon. I remember she took the time to talk with me, and calm my many fears as a new triathlete. It’s so refreshing to see that Heather has remained that same gracious and humble Champion that I remembered from 8 years ago. It truly was a pleasure to host such an amazing person and triathlete!
