Payson McElveen

Angela is a Canadian triathlete and Red Bull athlete. She's won the North American Ironman championships, and completed the event in under 9 hours three times--including her improbable 8th place finish in the 2018 Kona World Championships after a year-long battle with Lyme disease. Angela caught up with Payson at Red Bull headquarters over the winter where they were participating in a training camp together. They talk about some of the highlights from the camp that pushed the boundaries of sports science, how Angela developed such an incredible capacity for suffering, her trajectory as a pro which included a stint living in a tent, her amazing comeback from Lyme disease and why giving up wasn't an option, her non-profit "I Race Like a Girl", and more.
