Jessica Jones Meyers is a combat veteran, professional triathlete, and most impressively, mother of twins.  She has been a Team RWB leader and ambassador from our very earliest days.

In this inspirational and sometimes raw conversation, we discuss:

  • Adjusting to life after deployment
  • The not-so-glamorous life of a pro triathlete
  • Overcoming our own expectations and ego
  • Raising great kids as a divorced parent
  • Being an original Team RWB member
  • Deciding to go for it and chase your dreams

Sadly, at least for our triathletes, we don't get in to swimming technique or how to improve your transition times.  However, I think that everyone will benefit greatly from spending some time with Jessica.  We can't thank her enough for her courage and honesty in this really powerful podcast.
