In ep. 4 of The Triathlete Hour, Kona runner-up Tim O’Donnell talks about what it’s like to go viral for tripping over his wife, Kona champ Mirinda Carfrae’s power cord during her virtual race.

Plus, he chats with Kelly about getting started in triathlon at the military academy, when he felt like he made it as a pro, how he and Rinny met, and how they’re getting through the uncertainty right now. Hint: It involves wine.
