Heather Jackson had a great 2013: winning Escape from Alcatraz, Oceanside 70.3, and Wildflower for the second year in a row. So what are her plans for 2014? Heather breaks the big news on the show…check it out!
Jesse Thomas is getting ready to try and three-peat at the Wildflower Triathlon. He came on to chat about his epic race with Andy Potts at the Oceanside 70.3 in April, where he came up just a bit short, his years as a basketball player-he is one of the few triathletes who ever had the ability to dunk-and his time at Stanford running the steeple. Jesse and his wife, elite runner Lauren Fleshman, are also getting ready to welcome their first child-aka Lima Bean- in just a few months.
Lesley Paterson is coming off a huge win at the XTERRA World Championship in Maui. Heather Jackson took fourth at the 70.3 Worlds in Vegas and second in Oceanside last spring to 2010 Ironman champion Mirinda Carfrae. Paterson, from Scotland, was the only girl on her rugby team growing up and Jackson played ice hockey at Princeton before trying to make the 2006 Olympic team.

Michael Raelert of Germany, younger brother of Andreas, won the Rohto Ironman 70.3 Oceanside on Saturday March 27 with a time of 3:58:27. He was a man on a mission that day. After winning the 70.3 World Championship in Clearwater last November with a blistering 1:09 half marathon split, he heard the rumblings that yeah, he can run fast, but can he win on a course with a much more challenging bike leg. He came to Oceanside wanting to prove that he was much more than just a great runner.
