Rudy’s Road to Kona Series: Part 3
This 4-month series is dedicated to following Rudy’s journey as she is physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually preparing for the monumental challenge of competing in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI.
A challenge of this magnitude requires great strength, commitment, sacrifice and smarts which tests the best of the best in the world of endurance sport.
Throughout this series we promise to bring you the real story, not just the fluffy “everything is great” part of her journey, but also the vulnerable, authentic and insightful aspects of her preparation, her race and her post-race experiences.
Rudy’s approach to training and racing combines a refreshing blend of – mindfulness, reflection, mental skills and true, hard-ass grit.
In part 3 we find out what Rudy focuses on during those long, drawn out training sessions; how she clears her mind and how she focuses on the task at hand.
Continuing to heal through her hamstring and foot injury, Rudy shares with us her multi-level healing process which includes physical therapy, patience AND crystals.
Hear how Rudy is building a relationship with the wind in preparation for the high winds of Kona; how she is continually building confidence; and the power of big smiles.
Listen to the end to hear Rudy’s “thorn/bud/rose” sequence AND enjoy her song of inspiration by Jack Johnson.
