30 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Liuzhou - Shannon Florea

In this episode I talk with my friend Shannon Florea.  She talks about the challenges of how traveling with a bike for international races.  The language barrier among other things lead to a confused bike staff.  However, they manage to find a compromise and allow her to have the best possible chance for success.  She also mentions the wonderful wildlife and how even the insects want to love on people when you’re there. She also mentions the different atmosphere of racing in another country with regards to the raining and lightning.
