California native and ASEA® Ironman athlete Dexter Yeats remembers competing at a very young age. Her parents owned a riding stable, and she trained in long-distance horse races and endurance riding. In 1975, she and her horse were ranked third in the nation for the American Endurance Riding Conference. Riding and running began a lifetime passion for competition that continues to this day.
A challenging year, a champion attitude
In her early 70s, Dexter is still pushing forward with goals for Ironman races in Brazil, Austria, and Hawaii in 2022. Her long-term goal is to become an age group Ironman champion. This would round out her current accomplishment as a Half-Ironman champion—and she plans on continuing to race around the world for as long as possible.
“This has been a very challenging year for me,” says Dexter. “The fact that I’m still able to get myself to the starting line of any race makes my family very proud of me. I lost my sweet husband this last April, and he was the love of my life. Missing him has been very difficult for me. But I’m proud that I have kept training and plan to do my very best in these upcoming races.”
A redox routine
Dexter starts her mornings with 8 oz of ASEA® Redox Cell Signaling Supplement. Knowing that she has her ASEA supply helps her feel prepared. The champion athlete checks all of her equipment and supplies to make sure everything is in place before taking a few moments to go over her routine in her mind, visualize, and plan for the day. Then she stretches and begins her training.
“My next race is in Cozumel, Mexico at the end of November,” says Dexter. “I’ve been training and working out to make sure I’m ready. ASEA Redox has made an unbelievable difference in my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
We’ll be cheering for Dexter as she takes on her next Ironman where Mexico meets the Caribbean on November 21, 2021! We hope you join us from wherever you are in thinking of her.
