Known as Joycey on the race course, she has captured a world title, 6 iron distance titles and stood on the podium 3 times at the Ironman World Championships, Hawaii. In 2017, Rachel returned to racing having taken 2016 off to have her son and went on to win 2 Ironman races less than a year after giving birth and in doing so qualified for the World Championships.

A bit of background behind Braver Bolder Stronger
If triathlon, well let’s widen that up….life shows us anything it’s that some times things don’t go as planned or quite as you hope. That would be a fair reflection on my 2018 so far. While I have had to reset my goals this year and accept that I’ll be looking ahead to 2019 for my next triathlon targets: dialing things back this year has given me the opportunity to devote time and energy to new projects.
Way before I turned professional I realised that the influence sport on my life goes beyond the realm of my “sporting” world. Through sport I have learnt how to set goals and how to dedicate myself to acheiving those goals: through hard work; and by consistently applying myself. I have learnt the critical importance of team work, even when pursuing what looks like an individual pursuit. I have also learnt how to fail and even though that failure sometimes looks ugly – on reflection, through failure I have became more resilient and learned how to pick myself up, reset and move foreward with new goals.
So what has this got to do with new projects? After Kona last year I was introduced to Dana Platin by my manager. As we chatted it was clear we shared a passion in seeing women succeed; a passion for sport; and a shared belief that there is a huge opportunity to really tap into our best selves if we apply what we learn in one area of our lives, whether that be home, at work, sport or whatever, to all aspects of our lives. (Thank you Franko for facilitating that meeting!)
We all sat down quite a few more times for coffee and brainstorming and what emerged out of that was our Braver Bolder Stronger workshops – Brave Bold Strong being three of ten characteristics Dana has identified over the years that all women leaders possess. The philosophy behind our workshops (and our upcoming retreat) is to cover skills related to swim, bike and run and then align these with leadership strategies that have application in all areas of life…How to set goals. Tools for stretching comfort zones and moving into your “courage” zone. How to quieten the inner critic that can hold us back at times.
