35. Sika Henry on Her Quest to Become the First African American Woman Pro Triathlete

Our guest on the podcast today is Sika Henry - a 2x Marathon champion who turned her talents to the world of triathlon. 

A serious bike crash in 2019 slowed her quest to become the first African American Woman to hold a Pro Triathlon Card, but she still managed to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona later that year. 

She focused heavily on her run training through the pandemic and her tri season kicked off this past weekend at Challenge Miami Half Ironman. We recorded this show just before she left, but I'm happy to report that she finished safely and with a P.R. of 4 hours, 38 minutes in her first effort of the season.
