FasCat Athlete Sunny Gilbert recently had the ride of her life at the 2018 USA Cyclocross National Championships, netting second place in one of the most technical and demanding races in recent years. But what's more fascinating is the path she's taken to arrive at this place. A national champion in collegiate running, PhD level biochemistry science nerd, and a love for adventure, Sunny is the definition of a working-woman powerhouse athlete.

We sit down with Sunny and her coach, Isaiah, for a candid and hilarious conversation about evolving as an athlete, what it takes to be strong, and how to juggle everything in a busy life.

Keep up with Sunny's adventures by following her on social media: @run4funner on Instagram and Twitter.
