25 Jayna Lang – Racer Inspired by Kona Ironman

Jayna Lang on Sole Nation with Brook Kreder

I’m so excited to introduce you to Jayna Lang. Jayna and I train at the same facility in Denver (thought she actually lives in Littleton) and I’ve been so inspired by her.

She has run 2 half Ironmans, a marathon, and a half dozen half marathons. Now the question is whether she’s going to sign up for a full Ironman!

Listen in to hear her describe how she was inspired to try Ironman (hint: it all started with a trip to Hawaii!), the difficulty of fitting her training into her schedule, and why she tries not to chase time.
