We caught up with Rachel Joyce, and her cute sidekick Archie, to chat about juggling responsibilities as a pro triathlete and mother, and what it’s like to be back racing. After a strong seventh place finish at IRONMAN 70.3 Oceanside, she’s ready to take on the cream of the crop at St. George next month. Thanks for the interview, Rachel, and good luck this season!
