137 – IRONMAN© Mont Tremblant – Amy VanTassel Professional Triathlete

In this episode of the Pursuit of the Perfect Race, I talk with my wonderful friend Amy VanTassel.  She is such an amazing person and humble individual whose actions consistently reminds me of how wonderful the sport is along with how to really appreciate each race course.  Amy shares her deep understanding and this time we talk about her coach and athlete dynamic relationship with her talented husband, Chris Bagg. Chris has a vast amount of knowledge and is a world class coach and professional triathlete himself and is able to coach Amy to bring out the best in herself.  Amy thank you so much for coming back on the show and I look forward to hearing from you again after your race at IRONMAN© Louisville and many more in the future.
