The WITSUP, women in triathlon, podcast is a lot more than just swim, bike and run. It's all about getting to know the person behind the triathlete. What makes them tick. Who or what inspires them. What has driven them to be the person and the athlete they are today.

So imagine yourself joining me and your favourite triathlete for a chat over a coffee, or a wine if you prefer, and plenty of laughs.

    Felix Walchshoefer - Passion, It's In His Blood

    This is only the second time we've had a Supportive Dude on our podcast, and it feels me with glee to welcome Felix Walchshoefer, CEO of Challenge Roth.

    This weekend I would have been at Challenge Roth (my second home) covering the event, and catching up with dear friends from across the globe. I've said it before, it's my favourite event, and a large reason why, is because of Felix.

    In our chat we talk about the history of the event, and his experience from a volunteer as a kid to the CEO at such a young age after his father passed away.

    I also find out that he wanted to be a pilot, that he forgot to eat the day before he competed in his own event, and we reminisce about the first time we met, when I punched him.

    Grace Thek - Gracie Lou Freebush

    First up, Grace brought me a coffee, so she wins the award for the best guest. To be fair to the other guests, I haven't recorded an episode face to face in a while, but still, COFFEE!

    Grace burst onto the triathlon scene when she put on a finish line performance in her debut pro race in 2018 that had the crowd screaming as she kept falling to her knees. She is still relatively new to the sport, so can come across a little shy, however, I've gotten to know her over the past couple of years, and have even let her dog-sit Henry, so she felt comfortable chatting away. She's full of energy and passion, and we talk long-distance relationships, LAN parties, racing her Dad, playing dentists (what?) and I teach her about one of the best action tv shows ever - ALIAS!

    Rachel Joyce - Good Grief!

    How does a kid who went to school where competitive sport was actively discouraged become one of the best triathletes in the world? GOOD GRIEF! That is just one of the many stories that have shaped Rachel 'Joycey' Joyce.

    Other stories in this episode include, that time she fell off the trainer in our house, an introvert in Kona, concreting and being one of four siblings - GOOD GRIEF!

    Emma Jeffcoat - We'll go riding on the horses, yeah

    When Emma was three, she spent almost six months in hospital after a team of doctors mis-diagnosed her. That point in her life, although she didn't know it for a very long time, started a series of events and decisions that has turned her into the remarkable woman that she is today - including being the self-confessed crazy horse lady that she is.

    Shout out to The Supa as well!
