Cheers to a good life!

Ouch!

“You don’t want to run across the finish line of life without any cuts and bruises – you should crawl across, bruised but having lived a full life”

This quote seems fitting for anyone! I especially like it being a avid mountain biker and trail runner, but it really is fitting for anyone who wants to live life to its fullest.
It really touched me since I recently lost a friend to a nasty 7 year battle with cancer. She lived life to the fullest, fought long and hard with cancer, and did not give up even when her body did. She will be remembered by many and has a special place in my heart. After seeing her suffer and the many like her, it is a good reminder to live life to its fullest with both the good and bad. The only way we can enrich our lives is to experience life for all it has to offer. This is a hard lesson to follow, let alone teach to others, but in my opinion, very important.

Live life!!!!!!  And cheers to my wonderful friend Holly who is looking down on us.

About Flatlander Tri Coaching

Welcome to my page. My name is Heather Dall and I am a Certified Triathlon Coach located in Omaha, NE. I work out of Prairie Life Fitness (132nd location) and provide triathlon coaching, knowledge, experience, and expertise to those looking to get into triathlons to the seasoned veteran looking to improve performance. Along with being a triathlon coach and athlete, I also manage a local Trek Bicycle Store. There is nothing better than being able to be in a passion industry and share my love of the sport. I am an endurance junkie who got into competitive racing back in 2000. I started off racing mountain bikes, taking the podium numerous times. Then the kids came along and I took some time off to raise the squirts. Back in 2009 my friend suckered me into a mini tri and really the rest is history. I have been doing triathlons ever since, usually about 4-6 triathlons per season-primarily Olympic and X-Terra, plus 10K races, off-road runs, charity bike rides, and the occasional bike race. My background prior to triathlons, is tennis. I grew up playing on the courts in Northern California with the goal to play in college. I did accomplish my goal and was a walk-on at Creighton University. Long story short, while working part-time at Prairie Life Fitness in 2008, I was asked to start a tennis program for youth and adults. I still run the program and coach tennis year round. And with my connections at my gym, I had the opportunity to co-teach a 12 week triathlon training program for about 20 ladies spring 2011. They primarily trained for the Omaha Women’s Tri with a few going on to race later in the season. The group was a huge success and is the main reason I studied to become a triathlon coach. I love helping people to achieve their goals, make new strides, and spread my wealth of knowledge on to other like-minded individuals. Along with coaching, I am a distributor for Juice+ For those looking to add more fruits and veggies to their diet and make smarter nutrition choices, check out my site: http://heatherdall.juiceplus.com/
