Team: Try a Tri
Adrienne Smith has been a fierce competitor since she was a little girl—everything from figure skating and circus classes to more recently trying her cards as a professional triathlete for a few years. Now owning and operating Power of Your Om Yoga in Santa Barbara, California, she competes in running races and triathlons recreationally, but spends more time playing around with handstands and funky arm balances at the beach with her new puppy to give her life balance. Adrienne loves the commitment, discipline and courage necessary for endurance sports, yoga and being an entrepreneur—all require consistent focus on the reality of the present moment to face her fear of failure, the trap of comparison and the life-sucking goal of perfection. They have created several breakdowns, breakthroughs and transformed her into her best self—inside and out. After taking a year off of a disciplined training program, she is setting her sights on making a comeback in fitness, focus and fun for the 2016 season with Ironman Vineman on her race calendar...and if all goes well, will make it to the start line in with her husband in Kailua-Kona.
