Jocelyn McCauley recently won Ironman New Zealand in 8.53, breaking the course record and closing out with a 2.58 marathon - pushing herself to the line despite having a 12 minute buffer at that point. In this interview, she explains why she kept pushing so hard - as an athlete and a person, she's on a constant quest for self-mastery.
A former college track running star, Jocelyn got into triathlon after being a 'sherpa' for her sister at several events and loving the atmosphere there. She completed her first 70.3 only 11 weeks after giving birth to her daughter!
In this interview, she also talks about her deep religious faith - explaining how she keeps Sundays as a total day of rest, free from both training and racing.
This is a great conversation and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
