MBK NZThat’s right, we had the pleasure of spending around an hour talking with Meredith Kessler (Twitter and Instagram), who minutes before our conversation had just wrapped up a 7-hour training day. You’d never know it though because she’s got an amazing energy. Infectious. This is a must listen episode where Meredith opens up about her training and training partners, the sport of triathlon today, the newly formed Professional Triathlon Union, how she feels going into Kona as well as a sweet tribute to her super supportive husband and partner in life and business, Aaron. It was an honor and privilege to get to talk with Meredith and to add her to our Octane Athletics extended family.

Life of A Triathlete

Meredith and Aaron wrote the Life of a Triathlete manuals (an age group edition and a pro edition) to help athletes reach their goals in sport faster than being out on their own. They have compiled what Meredith has experienced and seen over her 16 years as an athlete (9 years as an amateur and 7 years as a pro) in over 55 long distance Ironman triathlons and countless other races. They take what is good and not so good and hope that they can through their own journey in sport. If they do, then they feel that their job is done!
