Josh Amberger understands that not every race day is going to be great, which is why he was able to handle a 17th place finish at Ironman 70.3 Worlds in Nice followed by a 33rd place in Kona to finish up the 2019 season.

Josh joined us from his new home that he helped design, so I asked Josh to design his perfect race course….tune in to hear what he said.
