Jim & Karen talk with Gene Sobol, a triathlon and running coach who has a unique approach to building the sport through affordable access to coaching and training plans. Gene talks about his triathlon background, including the obstacles he’s overcome to be successful in the sport. Plus he tells us his favorite way to recover after a long ride, his pre-race breakfast, and whether he shaves his legs or not!
Jim & Karen speak with Cory Comitale, Fitness Director at Infinity Athletics in Albany, NY. Cory operates group fitness classes where each person has their own individual program.

Karen sits down with USAT coach and triathlete Kristen Hislop to discuss the Women for Tri initiative, as well as being female athletes and businesswomen.
