Monica Fernandez - Tenacious, persistent, relentless, funny and vulnerable! How can a World Champion be vulnerable? Vulnerability comes in many forms from internalized thoughts to your choices in life. Monica's life spectrum has magical highs and incomprehensible lows. Her uniqueness lies in her unflappable resiliency and this trait is the cornerstone of her character. Monica shares her "struggles and commitment" in her book and the relentless pursuit to never give up. 130,000 Miles is not an athletic book about conquest - but a book about life. She shares her amazing epic journey with life lessons for everyone. Dave Scott 6 time Ironman World Championshow more
