Their conversation also covers Joel’s recent decision to spend time in another beautiful and runner-friendly area of the country — Portland, Ore. — and how he’s taking what he’s learning from that city’s racing scene and bringing it back to all that he’s doing here in Michigan. Heather and Joel chat about the importance of downtime and breaks from training and racing, and what’s next for Joel in the coming months. (Hint: the Ironman distance is calling his name again …)
