David RoherTRIATHLON/MARATHON COACH
In 2006 my father had a heart attack. I decided that if he was going to go through rehab & get in shape, I needed to start exercising so I wouldn't be in the same boat as him. Around that time, a friend asked me to make a donation to his NYC Triathlon fundraiser. I decided I would spend a year training for that race.
I didn't own a bike and got winded running for the bus, but I was determined.
I completed the 2007 NYC Tri in 3:33:31. I was hooked. Triathlon isn't about who finishes first, at least for me. For me, It's about how hard you worked to achieve the goal of crossing the finish line.
After my first Ironman race in 2010, I decided to become a coach to help others get in shape and achieve that ultimate personal victory.
