Months of Ironman training, marked by soaring highs and crushing lows, culminate in one day—October 11, 2014—the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona. It’s the ultimate opportunity and challenge to push through comfort zones, beyond screaming legs and a rebelling psyche. A time to gain a new understanding of your own limits. To see what you’re made of.

In the first installment of this 4-part series, Corbin checks in from her home base in Bend, Oregon, and we hear from her new coach, Jesse Kropelnicki of QT2 Systems. Check back for part 2 next Monday, Sept. 29.
