In this episode we talk to Tara Newman about what it’s like to be the partner of an endurance athlete. Tara helps smart successful people achieve their big life and business goals without losing their sanity, family and health. She works with clients one-on-one as well as in her small group coaching program titled “From Stuck to Unstoppable”. She also has a business blog, Family Sport Life. Tara is the mom of two and the Sherpa-Wife of an Ironman triathlete. Shush and Tara spill the beans of the good, the bad and the ugly on what really goes into supporting a partner and helping to get them through that Ironman finish line. This is a great show to share with anyone who may be going through the same experience. We love Tara’s tagline: Love deeper, play bigger, and live better.


In this episode we discuss:

  • Our quote of the day: “The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” ~ Audrey Hepbern
  • Personal performance coaching by Tara Newman
  • The role of a sherpa
  • Making life work during Ironman training
  • Personal goal setting
  • Food preparation ideas
  • Communication is the key!
  • Taking care of yourself
  • Post Ironman blues
  • Words of wisdom for the Ironman’s partner/supporters
  • Suzanne’s Question: Hey Plant Trainers, My husband recently got into long distance biking. He has signed up for a two day race. He trains a lot and I know it will only get longer. I can’t help feel jealous of the time he gets to spend exercising. What advice do you have for me?
