World Champion Tessa Kortekaas, Ironman World Championships 2018

"I didn't want the last 3 kilometer to ever end" -- Tessa Kortekass. What poetry! We speak this week with the world champion of the 30-34 women's age group at this year's Ironman World Championships in Kona. The watch word for the day was "control".

Amy Farrell (Overall Female Winner Ironman Santa Rosa 2018)

We're back with Amy Farrell after she won top female at Ironman Santa Rosa 2018. We wish Amy was a coach because we could listen to her talk about preparing for racing, the practice of Ironman, and the mental strength to push through for hours and hours. But you'll get it all in a few short minutes!

Amy Javens (Ironman Santa Rosa 2018)

Amy Javens spoke to us about her win at IM Santa Rosa 2018 (though she earned her Kona slot at IM Cabo 2017). Two things stand out from this worthwhile interview: 1) the support network, her "village", that makes it all possible. 2) How she trains to those mental moments when stuff just doesn't go well. She calls it "good wolf, bad wolf" and we think you'll take lots of valuable insights back to your own Ironman practice. There's even some hypnotics! :)

Brenda Bettencourt (Ironman Santa Rosa 2018)

We have known Brenda Bettencourt for a number of years. Her tenacity and drive in the sport is inspiring. She is a mentor and guide to many athletes in the sport today. But she talks about having to step back in 2017 to "align [her] actions with her goals" in order to get on the top step. That's great advice for living! We think you'll enjoy this interview.

Phoebe Fear (Ironman Western Australia 2017)

While all of our interviews are inspiring, we sometimes come across an athlete who, faced with big challenges, rises up to meet and exceed them. That's Phoebe Fear. Winner of her age group at Ironman Western Australia, we find out how Ms. Fear takes on the day in sport, life, and health. A must listen!
