With the World Championships less than a week away, you can bet that the excitement in Kailua-Kona is building, that Lava Java is packed and that triathletes from all over the world are getting ready for the chance of a lifetime. It’s interesting to hear about how mental strength will play a big roll. Rinnie talks about how she may not have the most talent, but she has the grit, the drive and the mental strength to succeed. If Macca is the king of mental games, then Crowie is the crowned king of self-control. People who know Crowie say he is the nicest guy in the world, but on the race course he’ll rip your head off. Watching these two former training partners go head to head again at the age of 39 is not only going to be exciting, but inspiring.
