Podcast Ep 47: Duathlete Kristen Hetzel

Talk about a busy life! Kristen Hetzel is is the world’s No. 7 duathlete (run, cycle and run events), a professional cyclist, an actress and a physical therapist. We invited her on the podcast to talk about how she became a member of Team USA and how she manages to fit in all of her interests and responsibilities … like training twice a day on a regular basis. Whoa!

Kristen has a degree in biochemistry from Wheeling Jesuit University and a masters in physical therapy, so she knows her stuff, both as an athlete and expert. She was kind enough to share her best advice on how to avoid injury (including the four most important stretches you should perform after your workouts). And that’s not the only good info you’ll get from our conversation!
