Jess Backofen has been doing triathlons since 2011, but she only recently accepted the fact she's a triathlete. A mother of two with a full-time job, Jess has turned to an Endurance Nation Digital Training Plan to guide her to Half Iron #3 in Atlantic City. 

Tune in to hear how Jess kicked the doggy-paddle habit (with help), how triathlon has helped her with kids and her super double top secret approach to eating oreos like a PRO. Blew. My. Mind.  Not joking. 


Mentioned In This Episode

  • Why it took five years to "become" a triathlete.
  • The Confidence Gap
  • Why her favorite gear are Aquasphere Goggles
  • How binge watching Scandal keeps the trainer going.
  • And the unbelievable connection she shares with Coach Patrick in NJ!
