Welcome to this week’s podcast episode, featuring an interview with Oahu triathlete and runner Odeelo Dayondon.
Odeelo might be a familiar face to you, if you’re already a member of the Oahu endurance sport community, but if not, Odeelo is a humble yet inspiring athlete who once started, quickly became a top age group finisher in local races.
Odeelo and I caught up in a Manoa coffee shop, which was slightly noisy at times – but we persevered and discussed how Odeelo took up running and triathlon, the benefits of joining a training group, why it’s ok to ask for help, and also about qualifying for the Boston marathon.
