We catch up with 12x Ironman champion Lucy Gossage this week. Lucy tells us why her win at Patagonman 2018 was the perfect way for her to transition away from professional Ironman racing and focus on new challenges in 2019. Lucy gives us a her perspective on the bucket list race in South America and explains why having balance in her life helped her to be a better triathlete.
*Why she opted for a race with no prize money and no support rather than an Ironman race in South America.
*What she will miss the most about racing as a professional long course triathlete
*About the race she regrets never having done
*Her tips on motivation
*Why you should ALWAYS read the race manual!
