It’s been a minute since our last race smackdown, and we’re excited to be bringing back the tradition today.
In this episode, BJ and I share the mic with YT coach Melissa Gansz and YT athlete Patrick Testoni, who crossed his first 70.3 finish line at this race. These two faced their fair share of obstacles in their training, traveling, and race execution. They are both generous and honest with the information they share and how much of their experience is aided by their mindset training.
We hope you take many nuggets of gold away as you listen, and if you desire more community in your life, perhaps joining Team YogiTriathlete is your next step. We’d love to have you with us!
