2008 Ironman Finisher Linsey Corbin Interview Liz: Hi this is Liz with Competitor.com and we’re here with Linsey Corbin in Kona. Now you’ve been here for almost a month which is pretty long for compared to some other Pros. Can you tell us why you choose to do that? Linsey: Yes, you know, I just really enjoy the town of Kona itself and this time of year where I live, it gets kind of a little bit colder and stuff. So last year I decided I would come out early, I was kind of interrupt with my training and I ended up rally enjoying it. It worked out well for me, so I thought I would replicate the same thing this year and same thing again, it’s worked out really well. Liz: Okay now, you’re used to training in Montana, small towns. Not a lot of other professional athletes there then you come here and have a ton of professionals to train with. How is that different? Linsey: You know actually I like it, like I said I would kind of usually get in a little bit of a rot with your training at the end of the summer and so it’s nice to come out here and there’s this year particularly has been so many pros out early than there were last year. And so it’s been really great, you can sort of pick and choose who you want to train with and then I’ve also done similar to last year where I’ve continued to do a lot of solo training in Kona itself. So it’s kind of the best of both worlds. Liz: Okay now, conditions here. I’m sure you’ve been here a month, you’ve seen some pretty tough conditions. You tend to seek them out try to replicate what could happen on race day? Linsey: Yes, I definitely think that’s a big advantage of coming out early is the heat, the humidity, the wind. And for me, the tougher, the better and so training is a big mental advantage too because on race day like this is nothing compared to that one day back when you know, you get blown off the side of the road or whatever. Liz: Okay so coming in the last year, you may be were on a lot of people’s radar and then finishing at the Top American, coming into this year, a lot of people are kind of you know, notice what you’ve done. So does that change your perspective coming into this race? Linsey: No I just try to keep I the same, you know really enjoy the course for what it is and a have a fun day and I know what I’m capable of and how I’ve trained and hopefully I can go out and give it my best shot and have a same result if not better. Liz: Okay, so we’re about a week out from race day. What will you be doing the next week? Linsey: I’m going to be doing hopefully, a lot of resting but also enjoying the Ironman atmosphere. You know, it’s kind of frustrating to see the town get so crowded and more traffic but I also really enjoyed it. It’s like a reunion. You get to see so many people you don’t see but once a year. I actually really like it so catching out with friends as well. Liz: Okay, thank you so much for your time and we’ll see you around next week and you can check back for more later at Competitor.com.
