Tackling controversial topics around women and endurance sports. Our guests today are Sharon Koontz and Leigh Ann Mueller. In this episode, we discuss endurance racing, issues female athletes face today, and transgender athletes. 

Leigh Ann Mueller has competed in Ironman competitions and short sprint triathlons for multiple decades.

Sharon Koontz was my original coach when I began competing in multi-sport endurance racing. She has raced in hundreds of triathlons throughout her career.

Their incredible insight and knowledge around endurance racing and training has us incredibly honored to feature them on this podcast.    

It’s time to cross the threshold with Sharon and Leigh Ann.
