Iâ€™m so excited to share with you todayâ€™s guest â€” my favorite female pro triathlete Hillary Biscay. Why is she my favorite? Oh, let me count the waysâ€¦.First we have similar backgrounds as collegiate swimmers (although I promised not to hold her USC affiliation against her). And not only is she on the PlantPower bandwagon (all the cool kids are doing it these daysâ€¦), she is also the first guest Iâ€™ve had on the show who has also competed at Ultraman â€“ it was great to hear her perspective on this race as a veteran pro. So much to talk about, fresh off her 60th Ironman â€“ yes you heard me right, 60 Ironmans! â€” which was also one of her fastest. Finally, anyone who lists â€œrunning ultrasâ€ as her â€œhobbyâ€ away from triathlon is definitely on my wavelength.
We get into all of it â€“ what keeps her motivated; how her training has evolved from her days with legendary coach Brett Sutton to her current relationship with coach Siri Linley; how she fuels her training and racing on plants (including missteps along the way); and of course her personal experience racing Ultraman, and what that was like as an ironman professional.
Finally, we get to hear all about her new line of triathlon & active apparel â€“ Smash. You know I love good design, and this stuff is excellent. I just wish she would hurry up and start making stuff for guys.
Hillary is a delight, and she brings her vivaciousness to this interview in spades. Enjoy.
