Heather finished her first triathlon — the Tri Goddess Tri, organized by Epic Races — earlier this summer, and on the show she talks about the memorable experience with fellow triathlete Kelly Yauk and triathlete-in-training Ali Lopez.
Listeners will remember Ali as the passionate chef who contributes recipes to MichiganRunnerGirl.com on a regular basis (she’s also a previous podcast guest) and Kelly as runner and race director of events held in July and November at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
The trio talk about what is takes to train for a swim-bike-run racing event, the tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way, what it’s really like to swim a half mile in a sprint triathlon (and longer distances during training, as Ali shares!), and why triathlon is such a great option for runners.
A special giveaway is also part of the show: Kelly talks about an upcoming northern Michigan swim event that raises funds for the Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay. MRG is partnering with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, a sponsor of the Swim for Grand Traverse Bay 2-mile open water event on Saturday, Aug. 13, and Heather and Kelly share how one lucky winner will receive free entry.
