Welcome to Episode #174 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance and triathlon goals. We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock. Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.
We have a very special guest today. In 1982, the World watched on ABC's Wide World of Sports as Julie Moss, in first place, collapsed within yards of the finish line in Kailua Kona at the Ironman World Championship. She would continue to crawl her way toward the finish line dragging her legs behind her. Today we remember this moment, the day of the race and the years that followed with the legendary Julie Moss as we talk about her book, Crawl of Fame.
We hope you enjoyed last week's interview with Alex Hutchinson about the book "Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Potential".

Julie Moss is one guest who does not need an introduction in the standard way we provide background and bio information.
Julie was born on October 8, 1958 in Carlsbad California. Her given name was Julie Donna Moss, though her mom wanted to name her Julie Dawn. As a young girl she idolized strong female characters like Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird and read as many of the Nancy Drew novels as her library carried. She was an avid surfer and Life guard and often skipped class to ride waves. She of course became an Ironman in 1982 and ended up falling in love and marrying Mark Allen. They were the prince charming and princess of triathlon, but ultimately grew apart.
Her story in the book is told from her perspective and those of some of her closest friends and relatives. It is honest, inspiring, educational and entertaining.Let's spend some time with our guest interview.
