Episode 132: Gwen Jorgensen

Olympic Gold Medalist Gwen Jorgensen joins me today! Gwen is a triathlete turned long distance runner who has always had a deep love for running. Gwen is not only a 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist in triathlon, she’s also a 2014 and 2015 World Champion. She was recruited to compete in triathlon by USA Triathlon after college where she both swam and ran for the University of Wisconsin.

Gwen now runs for Nike with the Bowerman Track Club and is married to an amazingly supportive husband Patrick and together they are raising the most adorable little boy who is about to turn one; Stanley. We get to talk about post partum fitness and what that training looks like in this episode as well as the transition from Triathlon to running. I know you’re going to find Gwen to be so kind and fun and relatable even though she competes at such a high level.

Enjoy!
