We were absolutely chuffed to be able to catch up with Meredith Kessler (MBK) for this week's show. She is a really fun and inspiring human being, the sort of person that just oozes positivity and you'd want at your dinner party. She's a mine of information when it comes to triathlon; she will be racing her 60th Ironman at Ironman New Zealand 2017, where she will be going for her 6th victory. She was an age grouper for years before she went pro so she also understands that constant battle of finding the perfect balance with training and life. We talked the ups and downs of Kona (she finished 2016 walking in with a 4.19 marathon,) why you can still get something out of those workouts you really think aren't going to be worth it. And Chrissie Wellington asks MBK a question, which might just surprise you.
