261 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Oceanside – Ellie Salthouse Professional

I have the pleasure of talking with the amazing Ellie Salthouse about her race at Oceanside 70.3.  She had some panic issues when she realized something critical was left at her homestay’s house, but everything ended up working out quite well. We talk about the training and led up to the race coming from a nearly 16 hour time change and how this impacts preparation.  I truly admire the professional women at this race because the comradery of those racing all take care of one another.  Paula Findlay (@paula_findlay) was able to help out Ellie before the race and offer an option should things not work out.  We also talk about how a hamstring issue last year was helped by one of her new sponsors and why she loves them so much.  Thank you so much for coming on the show, and I look forward to seeing your new bike!  Good luck down in Cancun later this month!
