This episode features the first (but certainly not the last) interview on Gym + Kitchen. Lesley Quinlan is a competitive triathlete, serves in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Army Reserves, and is a member of the internationally competitive CAF CISM (International Military Sports Council) team. In 2018 Lesley was named the Military Personnel Command Female Athlete of the Year, and in the 2019 was named the CAF Female Athlete of the Year. Finally, she was the Race Director of the Canada Army Run from 2020-2023 and just finished up her tenure in that role following this year's event.
In this episode, Lesley and I discuss triathlons, how to get started if you've never done a triathlon, what she did to up her triathlon game, and her approach to nutrition.
