Get ready for some insight into the crazy life of an amateur Iron-babe with Erin Carney.  What’s an Ironman?  It’s one of the hardest races in the world that consists of 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a 26.22-mile run, in that order and without a break  Erin has completed the Ironman in Florida (2011), Lake Tahoe (2013), and Mallorca (2015).  We’ll hear about her training, her preparation, and her fun stories (hello, food stations, bathroom stations, and time-out boxes) so get inspired to push your body to the limit.  Erin also shares her 30 for 30 challenge (be Jack Bauer for a day?) and opens up about her amazing and large family (she’s the third of eight kids!).
