Sarah and co-host Amanda Loudin enjoy a conversation with Liz Lyles, a professional triathlete and mom of two school-age children. In 2016, Liz not only completed two Ironman-distance triathlons—she won both 140.6-mile races, setting a course record at one of them. Liz talks about how, with each passing year, her learning curve of juggling motherhood and training evolves; she shares the keys to her training and racing success. The Reno resident divulges her feelings toward getting a treadmill as a Christmas gift, then spends quite a bit of time talking herself out of anxieties all mother runners will relate to. When she flashes back to her first triathlon, listeners will learn why her bike-to-run transition was so simple and speedy. Liz reveals her trick for getting through a tough spot in a race, as well as her household mantra of, “do what you can do when you can do it.” Laughter multiplies as the conversation progresses.
But first, the work-from-home hosts bond over snow days—and the burning desire for a quiet, empty house from which to work.
