The real story behind 6-time Wildflower Champion Jesse Thomas is completely inspiring! Tune in to his entertaining podcast with author and coach, Matt Dixon of Purplepatch Fitness! #Repost @purplepatchfitness with @get_repost
In 2011, Jesse Thomas was such a new pro triathlete, when he decided to race the Wildflower Triathlon at the last minute, he borrowed a bike and wore cheap sunglasses.
In part one of this special two-part interview with long-time Coach Matt Dixon, Jesse walks us through that magical day, which was, indeed, his catalyst into triathlon stardom. .
He was a true “newbie triathlete” competitor who won this legendary race which seemed downright unfathomable. It is, as they say in the interview, one of the most authentic moments in sport, a true cinderella story, and there are many lessons of process, expectations, and performance to be absorbed throughout this conversation.
Some may call it a fluke, but what makes this story and coach/athlete relationship so special is that Jesse defended his title successfully for the next SIX consecutive years and now he’s back in 2018 (along with the return of the race) with a different lens on the sport, but, still, with big expectations and a true desire to win. .
In celebration of the return of the Wildflower Triathlon and Jesse’s return to the start line, we’ve teamed up with Roka and Picky Bars to giveaway prize packs valued at over $2000! Link in bio, click the cool Jesse photo.
