Siri & Bek reflect on the different stages and milestones of their careers, the circumstances of their retirement and some of the pivotal lessons that sport has taught them
Podcast length: 35′ 28″
Siri & Bek look back on their careers and how their experiences have led to many life lessons that they are now sharing through their coaching club and to a wider audience. They explain that while triathlon did not define them as people, being immersed in that bubble of being a professional athlete taught them to appreciate more who they really are now that they have retired. They offer their candid and uncensored perspective and vivid memories of the rigors of training, of the battle of competition, and the people that have played a part in their journey.
Siri explains one of the many things that being a professional athlete has taught her: “I’ve learned now that it’s winning or learning, there’s no such thing as losing because when you lose or when you fall short, or when you fail, you learn the most and when we learn we grow and when we grow we’re moving forward and that’s all that matters because that makes us happy”
On making the decision to retire Bek recalls: “I remember texting mum and saying I’m done, and I was terrified, and the a few months later saying; wow, now I’m living!”
