Kirsten Sass & Volker Winkler – It’s Not the Race, It’s the Journey
Today we have a really special interview from two very important people in my life, Kirsten Sass and her father Volker Winkler. This interview is important for many reasons. In 2015, Kirsten and her father Volker fulfilled a lifelong dream for both of them. Volker’s dream was to race in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, however, after doing near a dozen Ironman races, he failed to finish high enough in his age group. At that point, Kirsten had her own dream of racing with him in Hawaii. Her only problem was that she needed to qualify. Listen in to hear their separate journies to arrive in Hawaii together.
