Lesley Paterson was the only girl playing rugby with the boys when she was growing up in Scotland. That love of getting dirty has served her well as she has become one of the world’s best off-road triathletes, having won the XTERRA U.S. National Championship in both 2012 and 2013, and the XTERRA World Championship in 2012. She has a cool new workout program that just launched at www.6min6pack.com and our in studio chat with Lesley and her Behavioral Psychologist husband Simon Marshall was downright hilarious.

Mark Allen joined us to take a look back at Ironman 2013. His insight into why people were running fast off the bike in Kona-or not-was fascinating. We also discussed the issue of older pro triathletes, like three-time champion Craig Alexander, racing two full Ironman races a year rather than just one. As someone who won his last Ironman in 1995 at the age of 37, The Grip certainly is a great resource for this topic.

Bart Aernouts from Belgium finished 11th last year in Kona with an amazing 2:47:10 marathon. When you look at his 2:37 run at Ironman France this summer, if he can hook up with the second swim pack in Kona and cut five minutes or so off of last year’s swim time, watch out!

Mel Hauschildt just won her second Ironman 70.3 World Championship. For a former steeplechaser, this triathlete-come-lately is an unbelievable talent.
