Andé Wegner: Don’t mistake kindness for weakness

The expressions “run like a girl” or perhaps “lift like a girl” are flawed for many reasons. Take, for example, Team Cornfed head honcho Andé Wegner .

With multiple endurance events – not least of which includes two Death Races – under her belt, to be able to even keep pace with, let alone beat Andé would be an achievement. If running or lifting like a girl means to be on the same level as the veterinarian from Bradley, Illinois, then that would be no bad thing.

Long time friend of Team SISU and fan of The SISU Iron, Andé speaks to SISU radio about what it is that makes her tick.
