This week, we talk to our oldest Seasoned Athlete to date: 73-year old Cherie Gruenfeld. Cherie is one of the most decorated Masters Triathletes in the world, having won the Ironman World Championships title in her age group thirteen times earning the F70-74 course record. In this episode, Cherie talks about how she had to create opportunities to play sports at a time when they weren't available to girls and women, how her unstoppable spirit helped her have one of the greatest races of her life, and how her greatest passion may be the work she does helping low-income kids achieve their own bold goals through her Exceeding Expectations Foundation.
