Episode 11 features Doug MacLean
Doug joined QT2 Systems as an athlete in 2009 and as a coach in 2010. Doug is definitely not afraid of taking huge leaps. In 2006, at age 26, without any significant swim, bike or run experience, Doug decided to enter the world of triathlon. He signed up IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene and IRONMAN Lake Placid, finishing both in under 11 hours. Shortly after, he decided that he wanted to turn pro, and spent the next three years doing little else but training, now under the coaching guidance of QT2. Doug raced his first Kona in 2010, and then in 2011, won the amateur race at IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene, earning his pro license (and did perhaps the best victory dance ever). As a coach, Doug has coached many athletes to the IRONMAN World Championships. There are no short-cuts. Show up and do the work, and you will get there.
