31 – Rachel Kodanaz on Living with Loss

Rachel Kodanaz experienced the unthinkable. At 31 years old, with a 2 year old daughter, she became a widow after her husband went out for an 8-mile run at lunch one day, had a heart arrhythmia, and never came home. She decided to do the Hawaii Ironman, her husband's bucket list item, as a way to honor his memory and hold him close to her through this time. Over the years, she has become an expert in helping others deal with loss and grief.
