258 – IRONMAN© 70.3 Oceanside – Sam Long Professional

I get to catch up with my friend Sam Long.  I really have to admire his courage for coming on the show and talking about this race.  While he was having a spectacular day to begin with, things took an unforeseen turn for the worse.  We dive into the fundamentals of this race in detail and spend some time reflecting on what happened and he shares what he did experience on this race day.  Thanks for following and Sam, thank you for sharing this experience.
