Lauren Brandon | 2nd out of the water in Kona, Faster than Pro Men, and being coached by a spouse

Taren Gesell

Lauren Brandon is a pro Ironman triathlete who has just weeks before this interview quit her job and committed full time to pro triathlon racing.  Lauren is a former NCAA All-American swimmer and is so talented in the swim that even when starting five minutes behind the pro men's field will swim past some of the pro male triathletes.

In this triathlon podcast interview with Lauren Brandon we talk about how she got into triathlon through her husband Barrett Brandon, who is also a professional triathlete, how she stays motivated to train after a lifetime of competitive swimming, how she finally made the jump from full time employment to full time pro Ironman triathlon racing, her performance in the Ironman World Championship in Kona, and her race plans for 2018.
