Wendy Lyall

Executive
Role: Treasurer & NCCP Trained Community Coach – Triathlon, Ironman Certified Coach
Joined Club In: It’s been a while!  2010 or 2011?
Why triathlon: I love to run and swim. I have experienced many running injuries, and biking keeps my knees strong, so triathlon seemed a natural fit. Training for three sports provides a nice balance and keeps training from growing stale. I also love the energy around triathlon events. When I am not competing, I am very happy to be volunteering and coaching.
Favourite Event: I always love the old Oliver half course, but I love training more than I like racing.
What’s on your Playlist: I prefer the calm and serenity of quiet! My current podcast – Clean Sport Collective.
Best Tip for a New Club Member: We do this for fun, enjoy the journey.
Tri Goal for 2023: To work on being the best I can be at all three disciplines while remaining injury free. To be diligent about strength training and to race sprint and standard distance triathlons. And to make Heidi a better swimmer!!!

Why triathlon: I was drawn to the sport from a friend of mine and after competing in my first triathlon at UBC in 2019 was hooked. I enjoy the training and the camaraderie that comes along with the sport and continuously trying to improve. I’m also just trying to keep up with my kids!
Favourite Event: Each one has been unique and a different challenge but hard to beat the beauty of racing through Stanley Park during the Vancouver Triathlon or cruising around scenic Victoria in the IM 70.3.
What’s on your Playlist: It really depends on my mood but generally I’ll be plugged into techno or some 80’s British Alternative!
Best Tip for a New Club Member: Get Involved. Push yourself. Have Fun.
Tri Goal for 2023: 2022 was my heaviest year to date with 3 70.3’s, a 10 km and a marathon. I’m looking to build upon this experience and level up to my first full Ironman.

Joined Club In: 2017
Why triathlon: As an RN, I volunteered in the medical tent during Ironman Canada events, in both Penticton and Whistler, and was always inspired by the grit of the multisport athlete. In 2016 as an avid life-long runner, facing lots of joint wear and tear, I was encouraged by our son, and a friend, both of whom were competing in triathlon, to consider registering for an event. I have been racing since that time and love the training process and the excitement of race days.
Favourite Event: The annual Cultus Lake Triathlon.
What’s on your Playlist: I love music from the 70’s: Earth, Wind and Fire, Fleetwood Mac.
Best Tip for a New Club Member: I was very nervous when I joined PMC.  My first club event was a group ride where I was warmly welcomed. I was made to feel comfortable even though I felt completely out of my comfort zone. Try to relax, and enjoy the process of “progress, not perfection”.  We are all here to support each other.
Tri Goal for 2023: To continue training in all 3 disciplines, racing in some local Sprint/Standard events with the goal of being on the podium in my age-group, and having some fun in the process with like-minded athletes.

Why triathlon: Volunteering at Ironman Canada in 2011 catching finishers was the catalyst for lighting the triathlon bug under me. What the heck was this crazy multisport! We knew we had to be a part of this crazy! I’ve completed 1 Standard and 4 Sprint distance triathlons, 4 half marathons and numerous other races. I enjoy racing but thrive off of the training even more.
Favourite Event: Cultus Lake Triathlon – popular annual Club race – lots of fun, beauty of a lake!
What’s on your Playlist: A mix of everything and various podcasts.
Best Tip for a New Club Member: Get out to the Club training; it’s a great way to build outside of your comfort zone, realize your potential and sweat alongside some pretty incredible humans.
Tri Goal for 2023: For a trajectory of continued strength and speed-building while remaining injury-free. It’s a tall order! The Valley GranFondo, Cultus Lake Triathlon and a few other races are planned for 2023, and a 70.3 is still in sight.

What brought you to triathlon: Just a few years ago, we went to Scottsdale area for my 40th birthday and happened upon Ironman Arizona. We spent the day watching the event from the start of the swim to the stragglers at midnight and I thought: these people are crazy – I need to do this! I returned home, bought a road bike and started a life change. For my 50th birthday, I went back and did my first full Ironman – in Arizona. It was crazy and awesome!
Favourite Event: Oliver 70.3 – Love the Okanagan, great terrain, small event, well run.
What’s on your Playlist: U2.  The best rock band ever!
Best Tip for a New Club Member: Commit.  Sign up for an event that stretches you.  Push through the discomfort.
Tri Goal for 2023: This will be a recovery year – no fulls – but I would like to do the Apple Tri Olympic in Kelowna and an undetermined 70.3. Planning for Ironman St. George in 2024.
