Colleen Cannon founded Women’s Quest, which offers women outdoor vacations and retreats, after a highly successful career as a professional triathlete. In her racing days, she was World Champion in 1984, and National Champion in 1988 and 1990. She also was a multiple U.S. National team member. Colleen has been a pioneer for women in triathlon from developing the first women’s specific jogging top with a built-in bra with Greg Hind to fighting for equal prize money. She now helps women unwind, bond and find their inner spirit while hiking, surfing, cycling, meditating and horseback riding at Women’s Quest retreats.
In today’s episode, Colleen talks to us about how triathlons were a family affair in the 1980s. She describes the first heart rate monitors, the beginning of aerobic base training and the importance of nutrition. Colleen’s enthusiasm for healthy living and sharing the joy of sport continues to be strong through Women’s Quest and her work with women around the world today. And, Colleen coins the term Horsivals. To learn more, tune in to this latest episode of Endurance Ladies Radio.
