a-aka We would’ve asked a sixth question but that would’ve been too predictable and he’s a busy guy so we cut him a little slack.
In six words, describe your feelings about Wildflower 2016:
Stoked, solid, thankful, little bit relieved
This year’s pro field was pretty stacked. Six words on the competition?
Fast, tough, Kiwi, Terenzo, hurt lots
You made your debut at Wildflower in 2011 kind of on a whim. Other than winning every year, what is it about the race you love so much?
Trails, people, essence, core of triathlon
Wildflower actually hasn’t been your main focus this season. How are you feeling about Ironman Lanzarote (May 21st), your goal race?
Prepared, nervous, excited, a little naive
Since you’ll be in Spain racing 140.6 at Lanzarote you won’t be in Bend to defend your Pole Pedal Paddle title. What do you think the chances are that our Finance Dude, Matt Briggs (who finished 3rd last year), can keep the title in house and take the W?
100% or fired, simple. Kidding (kinda)
Using business smarts in sport, handling a wealth gap in relationships, training when you're on your feet all day, reducing your carbon footprint, plus the meaning of life...
Lauren and Jesse discuss intimacy, on-again-off-again relationships, birth control for athletes, polyamory, and keeping the spark alive. Plus their engagement story! All love.
