Jesse Thomas broke a bone in his foot a year ago as he came down the last downhill on his way to winning his third consecutive Wildflower Triathlon. He was excited to win, but he was bummed knowing that he would be laid up for a while. ‘A while’ turned into a full year, and, with his nearly one-year old son, Jude, and his wife, Lauren, there with him, Thomas returned to Wildflower to become the first triathlete to win four Wildflower titles in a row. Jesse came on to chat about the emotions he dealt with over this past year and how he thought numerous times that his career just might be over.
