What sacrifices does it take to qualify for Kona? We are going to ask this week's guest. Our interview this week is with five time Kona competitor, author, coach and podcaster Debbie Potts. Debbie is the host of the Whole Tri-Athlete podcast. We met Debbie in Kona and we just had a discussion to talk about her history with the race, what it's like to qualify for Kona 5 times and what it's like covering the race as a podcaster. She also asks me some questions about some of the interviews with pros and age groupers and we'll get into a bit of that.
