For the last week of Women’s History Month, we’ll be re-sharing some of our favorite episodes from the badass women who make up our sport. We’ll be re-airing here in our feed one episode every day for the next week and then we’ll be back with new episodes the first week of April.Enjoy these old episodes from Gwen Jorgensen, Sarah True, Flora Duffy, Heather Jackson, Holly Lawrence, Sika Henry, Chelsea Sodaro — who has since had her baby, and on the last day of the month we’ll hear again from our only gender nonbinary pro Rach McBride.Today we're re-airing our episode with Olympic gold medalist Gwen Jorgensen, who talks to us about why she left triathlon behind to pursue a running career—and why she doesn’t listen to the online forums telling her she can’t do it. She believes in herself.Gwen was a swimmer growing up and left swimming to pursue running—and left running (and her accounting job) to pursue triathlon after a whole lot of convincing from other people. She then found herself at the Olympics 18 months later. She tells us what it took to win gold, how her now-husband went all-in on supporting her for that goal, and why she left it all to go after a marathon medal.She’s now trying to make the Olympics in the 5K or 10K and has been training with the Bowerman Track Club. We get some details about what that’s been life, how she came back from surgery last year, what her plans are post-Tokyo, and why she’s gotten more involved with social justice issues. Will we see her come back to triathlon?
