2. Joaquin Duro: VP Digital Telemundo Desportes, Ironman Finisher, Kidney Transplant Warrior, Living Proof of Second Chances

A Why We Tri Podcast Production

EP:02 Second Chances with Joaquin Duro

In Tonight’s episode I am joined by my triathlon teammate, husband to Farrar Duro DOM, FABORM, father of four amazing kids, Vice President of Digital Telemundo Desportes, Kidney Transplant Warrior & Ironman Finisher; Joaquin Duro.

As Miami turns up the heat during this Quarantine Time, we both bring our favorite and most essential beverage to this Zoom podcast: WATER! 

As you will hear in Joaquin’s stories, staying hydrated is key!

Joaquin’s introduction to the world of triathlon was unexpected and came shortly after a kidney transplant ignited him with motivation full of second chances. Joaquin’s story is not a common one but one that resonates with many of us, looking for those second chances life has to offer. Many times Joaquin was told no, not happening, not today and yet he continued to persevere towards an inner drive to show up and carry his feet over those finish lines. He even took a pause from triathlon after the loss of his father and talked about how that was an important part of his journey into coming back, when the time was right and he was ready. Joaquin opens up with how the support of his wife and children gives him the strength to keep going, as well as helps him to pick those destination Ironman races as family vacations. Making each Ironman Race an adventure for the entire family to enjoy.

Special thanks to Joaquin and his wife, Farrar, for spending some Zoom time with me and shedding some light on Why We Tri!
