#109: Sarah Piampiano

The week Rob interviews Pro Sarah Piampiano. She's had a stellar season this year, with wins at Ironman Vineman and 70.3 New Orleans, as well as finishing 7th in Kona. 

What's most interesting is her back story - she came to triathlon late, as a successful Wall Street worker who smoked 2 packs a day, and only did her first triathlon after being challenged by a friend! She was instantly bitten by the bug, and triathlon proved the impetus she needed to make positive change in her life. Driven to become World Champion, she quit her successful city job, put her belongings in storage and drove to California to start to train full time. It's an awesome story!
