This was fun. Jessica has such a good mindset. I love the blending of life with training rather than trying to balance.

And now I have to go look for adventure races near me.

I really enjoyed this episode. Jessica’s a beast! Such an interesting and varied set of bike skills she has; crits, Ironman, adventure racing. Very cool.

Really enjoyed this episode too! I definitely relate to Jessica’s concept of blending work, life and training rather than balancing. Also what an awesome athlete!

Thanks Jessica and Jonathon for the conversation and the inspiration to keep working hard for the next goal and to better ourselves each day.

Enjoyed the episode! Interesting to hear how Jessica balances an intense work professional role and all the sports that she loves (yes, relevant). Inspirational.

I love the idea of races being a celebration of our training. Great reframing of an anxiety provoking event.
An inspiring podcast, thanks , Jessica :slightly_smiling_face:
