Our search is over – introducing our first Holistic Endurance Ambassador!

The level of enthusiasm, drive, zest for life and love of holistic principles from our 7 finalists has blown us away, not to mention all the applicants. To say the choice was hard from the outset is an understatement. But in the end there can be only one Holistic Endurance Ambassador… (insert drumroll)….

Introducing The Holistic Endurance Ambassador

Courtney Potts!

Holistic Endurance Ambassador
You will be getting to know more about this wonderful person over the next few months as Coach Jackie steers her towards her goal of competing in the Geelong 70.3.

In the meantime here is a little more about Courtney.

Courtney is a Neonatal Nurse at the Monash Children’s Hospital and studying her Masters in Neonatal Intensive Care. Having moved to Melbourne from the Sunshine Coast in February, beginning shift work and studying, her training suffered. Having her eyes set on becoming an Ironman in 2018, being the Holistic Endurance Ambassador will help begin that journey for her.

Courtney’s top 3 favourite sporting moments

  1. Winning Hawaii 70.3 – her first half Ironman win
  2. Competing at the 70.3 World Champs in 2016 in her own backyard supported by family and friends
  3. Competing at ITU World Champs in Oklahoma and despite not getting the podium finish she was hoping for did learn a lot about herself and her racing.

And a round of rapid fire questions

Run, swim, bike? Run

Pool or open water? Pool, don’t like waves, so maybe Melbourne open water swimming will be perfect for me!

Tea or coffee? Soy Cap

Short Course or Long Course? Long

Sweet potato or potato? Sweet potato

Pee in wetsuit or no? I’ve tried to but didn’t happen 🤷‍♀️ Stage fright?

Holistic Endurance Ambassador

Windtrainer: love or hate relationship? LOVE

Treadmill: Thumbs up or thumbs down? Thumbs up

Pilates or yoga? I like both but don’t do enough of either. Physio has just started me on a clinical Pilates program to help with my return to running post injury,

Greatest fear? Waves

Guilty pleasure? Chocolate

And most importantly her rabbit’s name is Flopsy.

Congratulations Courtney and a massive thank you to all of our finalists and applicants. It was amazing and such a privilege to learn about you all, not just out on the course but what lead you to endurance racing.
