Hello, my name is Fabiola, I am 31 years old, Bolivian and I'm preparing to do my first IM 70.3.
Since I was little I loved to dance, I did jazz and ballet for several years; At age 16 I moved to another city and that opened my eyes to a new passion ... jogging. Since then I jog and participate in all the races in my city.
I have always been an active girl, I love doing sports and training ... I love it so much that during my quarantine I graduated as a fitness trainer and started my little project called STAMINA. (in which I am a functional training coach)
In January of this year I started preparing to do a 70.3; One day I woke up and said to myself ... What else would I like to do?
And until then I didn't know how to swim (I had never learned) so I said ... it can't be possible that I'm 30 years old and I can't swim, and instead of just entering swimming classes ... I decided to do a 70.3 (hahaha yes I'm a little crazy, but I thought ... I love running, I like cycling, I just need learn how to swim) now that I already have a triathlon coach, a training plan, I know I have another passion besides running ... which is the bike, I had never pedaled a road bike before starting this adventure.
It is incredible what one learns as an athlete every day, I had brutal changes in my diet, in my day to day and even in my weekend plans. And despite the fact that to be a good athlete one makes sacrifices ... the fact of achieving the goals that you set yourself is the best satisfaction we can have.
And well that's a small summary of how I got here ...
