Today on the podcast, I sync up with US Professional Triathlete, Skye Moench. Skye came in fourth place back in May 2022 at IRONMAN World Championships in St. George, Utah as fastest American female with a time of 8:34.  She is a 70.3 and IRONMAN Champion.  Skye has been on the podcast twice and is becoming a regular. During our conversation we catch up about how she has been racing and training since World Champs in St. George, how she manages her busy travel schedule, some key learnings she has gleamed along the way, her expectations and excitement around Kona from both her mental and physical game, and post Kona plans!
