Interview Introduction:

Julie Moss is one guest who does not need an introduction in the standard way we provide background and bio information.

Julie was born on October 8, 1958 in Carlsbad California. Her given name was Julie Donna Moss, though her mom wanted to name her Julie Dawn.  As a young girl she idolized strong female characters like Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird and read as many of the Nancy Drew novels as her library carried. She was an avid surfer and Life guard and often skipped class to ride waves.  She of course became an Ironman in 1982 and ended up falling in love and marrying Mark Allen.  They were the prince charming and princess of triathlon, but ultimately grew apart. 

Her story in the book is told from her perspective and those of some of her closest friends and relatives.  It is honest, inspiring, educational and entertaining.Let's spend some time with our guest interview.

Julie Moss, Ironman Legend on Holding on to Self-Worth and Owning the Hard Stuff

Play

In February 1982 on the big island of Hawaii, a young graduate student by the name of Julie Moss showed the world what it means to never give up. Having entered the Hawaii Ironman as a means to complete her graduate school thesis and finish up her degree, Julie never dreamed that she would find herself in the lead that day.

She held her position strong until the final half mile when signs of severe dehydration began to set in. Eventually, her body gave out on her with just yards to go and she collapsed to the ground. What ensued became athletic history and made Julie a legend in the sport of Ironman triathlon.

In this episode, Julie describes a moment of surrender when she didn't feel she could make it another inch and then the immediate wave of willful energy that came over her to get up and move. From this will, she was able to get to her hands and knees and crawl herself down the shoot and over the line. These moments are emblazoned in the sport Ironman triathlon and proof to us all that anything is possible.

Julie is famous for that crawl and even named her book, Crawl of Fame, after her iconic experience but there is so much more to Julie than those last few yards of the race. Thirty five years later she is still competing in triathlon, she is a dedicated yogi, a mom and a woman on a mission to serve more in her life. We dive into all of this in today's episode and we are so grateful that you are decided to tune in and support the show.

How do you begin to describe a podcast with a woman who not only help put triathlon on the map, but who has inspired so many people within the sport, and many swim, bike, run civilians as well.

Julie Moss was not only one of the first women I heard about when I started to fall in love with triathlon (hit pause and watch this clip now if you haven't already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVKqFAPdjIA), but she was also the first person I heard interviewed on a podcast. So to have the opportunity to sit down with Julie and be the one interviewing her felt like things had come full circle.

Whoever you are, whatever you're up to, I guarantee you'll be inspired by Julie and her stories - of which there are many.

Crawl on my friends!
