Athlete Showcase – Hailey

Before Ironhawk, Hailey was scared to ride her bike down the sidewalk, let alone her family’s driveway. She was anxious to swim in the deep end and she would have never thought to go jogging.

When her parents signed Hailey up for the triathlon and explained to her what it was and what it meant, she seemed interested and curious. She will be the first in her family to do a triathlon and that means something to her.

Hailey’s twin brother had major leg lengthening surgery last summer. She has been very supportive through it all, but she was in need something to fill HER bucket! Ironhawk practices would force her to step way outside of her comfort zone… but she did it! The ways in which Hailey has grown in the last month are astounding!

The girl who wouldn’t ride her bike just a month ago is now getting up every morning and riding 3 miles AND jogging 3/4 mile. The girl who has dealt with anxiety is now able to cope better and is feeling more confident in herself. And most importantly, she is proud of her accomplishments so far.

Ironhawk Juniors has made Hailey realize that she can push herself and achieve great things. She has been an inspiration to her family as well, and has taught them that it is okay to feel scared when pushed and through change, it’s how you persevere that matters!
