This week, Alyssa and Haley chat with ITU triathlete Summer Rappaport
about all things swim, bike, run. Summer talks about her upbringing as a swimmer, how she lucked out with a swim coach in college who encouraged her to run, and how her lifelong dream to be an Olympian came to fruition as a triathlete. She talks about training during a pandemic in a new city with limited resources and how she is dealing with the postponement of the 2020 Olympics. Summer shares things she is working on this year including bike-handling skills and mental skills related to riding in the fast-paced ITU races. Plus, the scoop on sponsorship for ITU athletes, her thoughts on social media, and plans for the future.
Alyssa celebrates her 35th birthday by running an FKT, Haley adventures into the grocery store, and we answer mailbag questions about bike maintenance and motivation.
