Episode details

Sid & Kelly break down their predictions for the kickoff race of the U.S. season: Oceanside 70.3. And they review all the Southern Hemisphere race results from this past weekend: Gwen, Ashleigh, Max, Hayden.

And then Sid talks with triathlon superstar, Meredith Kessler, who just took 4th at her 9th Ironman New Zealand—her 72nd Iron-distance race. What keeps her going? They talk about coming back after baby #2, going for the win in your 40s, and what they've learned over the years.

Note: We also got some of the details of Comrades wrong. The famous massive ultramarathon goes between Durban and Pietermaritzburg in S. Africa.
