You've heard me talk about it before—and we're back! I'm so excited to be partnering with First Bourn, a company, group of people and soon-to-be world-class experience starting right here in my very backyard: Asheville! Of course, it doesn't stop there—there are talks of Boulder, Arizona, Australia... it's like they're targeting all of the cities and places that make my heart sing! And when they say "world class", they mean it. I'm so excited to be joining this amazing crew of athletes that I've either idolized or will have the very privilege of racing against next year as an elite (and I think a few more extremely exciting announcements still to come—stay tuned)! You can check out my profile here or click the image below to see the full list of athletes excited to see First Bourn grow!
Some of you have been asking "what exactly is First Bourn?" since there has been so much chatter. Well, you can check out their website here, email or message me directly or here's a quick glance into First Bourn's vision and goals in creating this community of endurance athletes:
First Bourn aspires to become a widely recognized network of world-class training destinations for endurance athletes. With many supporting higher altitude training, we are focused on providing athletes the experience, accommodations and support needed to be successful in achieving a wide array of goals. First Bourn is fueling the multi-sport and endurance lifestyle and helping athletes improve and perfect individual performance – no matter what the level of fitness. Our focus on continuous improvement goes beyond just ourselves, but to each and every community we’ll inhabit. We will dedicate commitment, time and resources to those around us.
I'm serious when I say don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions at all—I love talking about this venture and what it will bring to the Asheville area and the triathlete community in general in the near future. And, as always, you know I love chatting up my little AVL town!
