This week we had the mic over to Laura Siddall for a conversation with her friend, training partner, and Ultraman World Champion Dede Griesbauer.
A few weeks ago, Sid was part of the crew for Dede’s record-setting win on the Big Island. This week, Sid and Dede go deep on all the details of Ultraman, what it takes behind-the-scenes and on the race course, and how you even get sucked into the three-day race in the first place.
Dede is a former collegiate swimmer turned a former Wall Street trader, who turned into a champion pro triathlete. And now, at 52, she’s still setting course records. We’ll let the two of them tell you the rest.
