A great interview with “The Queen of Kona”, Paula Newby-Fraser. She first raced the Ironman World Championships in 1985, coming in 3rd, and states she’d never ridden 112 miles in a single week, let alone in a day, or run a marathon prior to that day. That simply never fails to amaze me. She returned the following year, taking first place, and went on to win 7 more championships between 1988 and 1996.
