finish-line-smile-643x964We are lucky! This week we got the chance to sit down with accomplished professional triathlete and all-around awesome human being Lauren Barnett. We spent some time talking about what it’s like being a professional triathlete and issues with and for professionals in the sport today. We also discuss the equality movement in professional triathlon and why it is so important to the sport overall

You can follow Lauren on twitter @louloutri. Go like her athlete page on facebook and read all about her training and racing and a little about her life with her super supportive husband Brandon at laurenbarnettracing.com.

You can read all about the equality movement in triathlon at triequal.com on twitter @50womentokona and on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/50womentokona. Check out related topics by searching for twitter, facebook or instagram using the hashtag #50womentokona. To be clear, this issue is more about Kona slots. It’s about the professional women having the same race day conditions that the other pros do like warm up time as an example. You can read Alicia Kay’s very recent article about how this impacted the women pros at Ironman 70.3 California on her blog.

A special thank you to Lauren’s sponsors for loyally supporting her…
