#096 Triathlons with Alicia DiFabio

Triathlons are for crazy people, right? Well, kind of! In her book Women Who Tri, guest Alicia DiFabio tells the story of how the women in her small New Jersey town went “triathlon crazy” and took her along for the ride. We talk with Alicia about the birth of triathlon as a sport, why women are feeling drawn to it in huge numbers, and all the different ways to make triathlons more accessible to us “normal people”. Warning: you might get inspired!
