This week on WiSP IronWomen Sara Gross and Alyssa Godesky are joined by Olympian and former 70.3 World Champion Joanna Zeiger. Joanna finished 4th at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games and was the 2008 Ironman 70.3 World Champion. She is also a 2x Ironman Champion and 15x 70.3 Champion...and these are just some of her accomplishments. The talented Joanna also holds a PhD in Genetic Epidemiology from John Hopkins University. She is a researcher and coach and is on the board of directors for TriEqual, a non-profit organization that encourages diversity and equal opportunity in triathlon. Most recently, Joanna has turned her attention to the mental side of sports performance and she shares stories from the careers of successful elite athletes combined with thorough research in “The Champion Mindset: An Athlete’s Guide to Mental Toughness”. Sara and Alyssa get inside Joanna’s own mind, her personal story of success and misfortune and how she deals with chronic pain day to day.
