Triathlon Athlete & Coach Siri Lindley: How to Survive Leukemia

Siri Lindley is a two-time world champion triathlete and winner of twelve ITU World Cup races. She retired as the #1 ranking triathlete in the world, a place she held for more than two years. Today, as the top female triathlon coach in the world, she’s guided Olympic medalists and Ironman champions to not only become better athletes, but also better people.

Siri is also a highly acclaimed life coach and one of Tony Robbin’s 10 favorite motivational speakers. With an infectious and authentic passion, she empowers audiences to strive for peak performance, and to work through and ultimately conquer the demons of fear and self-doubt.

Along with her wife Rebekah, Siri founded and runs Believe Ranch and Rescue, a local horse rescue program in Colorado that has directly saved almost 200 horses, and the national advocacy group Horses in Our Hands, which has been a key voice in decreasing by seventy-five percent the number of American horses slaughtered every year.

Siri runs Equine Assisted Coaching programs bi-monthly from March to November. Sharing with hundreds the beautiful power of the horse to heal. The groups Siri works with are those battling anxiety, PTSD, fear, grief, disability, and those facing challenging diagnoses.

In late 2019, Siri faced her most difficult battle yet when she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Despite being given less than a 10% chance of survival at the time of her diagnosis, Siri won the battle and was pronounced cancer-free by her doctors in May of 2020.

Whatever she does, Siri Lindley pours herself into the people around her and changes lives for the better, and her results can be seen all around the world. In 2020, after her successful battle against cancer, she launched two new coaching programs – the Sirius Squad for anyone looking to unleash their fitness warrior and find better health, and the Go First to Success Squad, a quarterly in-depth program of life coaching.

Siri Lindley is married to Rebekah Keat, also a world class triathlete and coach. Together they run the Team Sirius Tri Club, a training program for triathletes. They live near Boulder, Colorado, with 40 rescue horses, 3 dogs, and a cat. Siri is a graduate of Brown University with a degree in Psychology.
