Making Meredith

It was late 2007, and I had just completed another grueling 90-minute power-based trainer session with my team of 20 athletes. Standing outside the studio was a smiling, unassuming Meredith Kessler waiting to capture a few words with me. Meredith’s simple request was that I “make her good.” Under her gentle exterior was a world-class athlete wanting to be born. This is my interpretation of her journey, and some of the lessons that any triathlete can draw from her experience.
