Triathlon Success: Lifestyle vs Bucket List

California Soup Podcast

Olympian Sarah Haskins joins California Triathlon Soup to discuss her 14 year triathlon career including participating in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.  Sarah explains how she nimbly juggles being a professional triathlete, wife of Nate Kortuem (triathlon coach) and mother of Caroline & Connor.  We do a deep dive on her road to being selected to a 2008 U.S. Olympic Team that included Laura Bennett and Julie Ertel.  Finally, we hear about her secret to success building long term relationships with sponsors including Performance Bike, Fuji & Rudy Project.

California Triathlon Soup podcast is 2 parts triathlon, 1 part culture and a dash of silly. Season 1 offers a fresh serving of “Soup” every two weeks over a 12 week period.  The guests are top notch as a counterweight to the host’s shear lack of talent and even Erik Schiller’s mad post-production skills might not be enough to make this palatable.  Still, we hope you line up like Oliver Twist and find the podcast hearty and not thin gruel.
