May 2018 – Mauricio Sanchez

The biggest motivator in my life is my family. When not spending time with them, you can find me helping my clients grow and become better at what they do. I have been registered for one race orIMG_1564 another 100% of the time for the last 12 Years, but my most favorite of all have been those I got to race with my wife and/or my daughters, which have been many. I have an incredible tribe pushing, pulling and sometimes, dragging me through the process. I love to read and I love to write.

  1. How many years have you been in triathlon?  9   
  2. How many years have you been apart of HEAT? 9
  3. How did you get started in triathlon? I had been running for two years and needed a bigger challenge. I discussed Triathlons with Monica, but since we knew nothing about them, she gave me the book “Triathlons for Dummies” that Christmas; read it twice in two days. I then heard about ACME so I went to learn more. Met Mark Evans and after spending an afternoon with him, I walked out with a bike. The rest, as they say, is history.

  8. What serves as your motivation to keep going when the training or the race seems too hard? The fat guy in the mirror keeps getting closer. But on a serious note, my grandson once said that I was his hero.
