Welcome to Nicole Valentine Racing!
I’m creating this site to share my experience of turning professional as a triathlete, the adventures of training in Boulder, traveling to races, and how my life and approach to triathlon has changed since I’ve been forced to up the ante in the Pro Field. Hopefully the content on training, nutrition, racing and gear will be useful for others.
This is my story of taking the plunge, a giant leap of faith into the unknown. It was a whirlwind first year of chasing my dreams, from the decision to turn Pro, to leaving my job and financial security, to packing my car and driving cross country to train with a coach and team in Boulder, CO. It was a turbulent first year. Much, much harder than I could have anticipated.
Follow my journey here as I share the tough lifestyle, sacrifices, challenges, and rewards of turning professional as an athlete and chasing your dreams.
In the end it’s not about swimming, biking, or running. It’s about discovering your deepest potential and bringing it out. About sharing your gift with the world. I am inspired by Triathlon.
