Iowan Heather Poskevich didn’t think she had an athletic bone in her body when she picked up a bicycle in 2015. Six years later she found herself crossing a desert on a 930 mile cycling race across the West. An ER physician at MercyOne, Poskevich is an ultracyclist that met up with Brian Powers to talk about how she got into racing and what it was like to participate in the Race Across the West which starts in Oceanside, CA and ends in Durango, CO. She ended up finishing second overall in the 930 mile race with a time of 3 days, 2 hours and 31 minutes! That is like doing all of RAGBRAI, twice in 3 days!
