It's hot out there and it's getting hotter. How does the body handle increased temperatures and is there anything that you can do to improve performance when training and racing in the heat? Lisa Bentley, with two decades of racing triathlon as a professional at both the 70.3 and Ironman distance had a storied career but it never should have been because Lisa has cystic fibrosis. Hear Lisa's story of living with a chronic disease without being defined by it and her journey to become a beacon of hope for patients and families living with the disease. Finally, the Triathlete Routard goes to Michigan for the Steelhead 70.3 race and second year pro Maddy Pesch comes back to the podcast to tell us all about this iconic and popular midwestern race.
