"How can I help other people around me? And I get there's something like it's going consume be. 'cause that's just my that's how I am. That's how I do all that being said, I mean, you know, let's talk a little bit about your book you mentioned earlier, but you know, run the mile that you're in comes out April sixteenth, but tell us a little bit about the book and the inspiration there. Because obviously you've had this amazing career, you know, and and you know, but I think there's a lot more that goes into this book than just your career. I mean, what what was what was the reason a lot of people have amazing careers. But not a lot of people decide. Hey, I need a book on this. You know, what was kind of your inspiration and tells a little bit about the book. Yeah, I'm super excited share book with people. I think I'm hoping that people aboard whether you're. Run or not we'll be able to relate to the book because you know, I don't just write about like my sisters like write a lot about my failures to overcoming failures was a lot harder in a bigger part of my story than the successes like successes were amazing known topic experiences. But in all honesty, like those successes when they happened in on that day is actually fairly easy. You know, it was those days where only my death on training on or when I'd been performing really poorly during my time at Stanford make dropped out for quarter. And we're just getting last place in race after race or my Olympic to sibling. It's like there's so many disappointments along the way, and I think, you know, we can all relate like real go through challenging hard times in our different on our own different journeys. So yeah. Kinda my my excitement for writing the book just came from a thinking. About myself when I first got into the sport when I was thirteen years old and just thinking about like if I could talk to that version of me, but being on my end of things now after having finished the Ronin career. What would I tell my thirteen year old? So and so I kinda kinda wrote from that perspective and just take out the most important and biggest. Parts of my journey and share the story. And then kind of things that go along the way or the thing learned a long say, and I was able to get get through those challenges. So I just feel like when I was on my journey. You know, I knew that it was not for to help people. But now it's becoming even more clear that that is kind of how God intensities to be. You know, it's not just the trying people in courage through sharing our story in story is powerful. You know, why were watching movies? Yeah. I can can reach audience, and the people the find something inspiring helps them on their journey and talking about helping other people, I know you and your wife, Sarah.

"You're first getting into it. So people like just buckle up like I even longer. You are coming into but just pushed through that really stage because it's just it's hard feel like you're suffering. It's just not a lot. You don't get that. Like, I'm floating through this run since ation. I was the same way, you know, growing up wanted to play professional baseball, and I got up in big bear lake. And my. For my dreams. Like, no. I mean me I was Easter. And it's all you know, I was not not the strongest gun the baseball field. Just despite like all my best efforts kinda hitting my head against the wall and not doing that. Well, and then one day remember driving down to basketball games when I was thirteen and looking out over the lake in my hometown. And just feeling like God is just kind of planting the seed of desire inside me to try and run around the lake which is fifteen miles around lake. And so I went out the next weekend with my dad, we went on a really slow super painful running around the lake, and, you know, that was the moment that I was kinda hooked, and and come me into my twenty near running through, and you know, in talking about that, I know like runnings kind of one of those things I had to run because you know, I I'm I raced professionally off road trucks. And we've got you know, some endurance racism in the truck sometime seventeen eighteen hours, I have been in the. Past you know, and it's one of those like you're in the middle of it. And you're getting beat up, and you know, it hurts, and it's painful, and there's a point where you sometimes you question you like, why am I actually doing this? And then the next day you wake up and you're like, oh, I understand. Why did that you know? It's like, I don't know. I gotta think with running and I've never run at the distance as you guys have. But I think there's that personal gratification. You know when you finish that run. You know, that's like that's gotta be because it's not fun. Like, you said, it's not a fun sport. But at the end of it, you know, there's there's that sense of accomplishment. Right. Yeah. Yeah. And it does get more fun. You know, like. Every run. It's like even when I was in the best shape in my way. I would have certain runs where I was just going to just make it to the end of the run, you know, running the been outside times where I was racing. I was seeing. You get those kind of. When they come so good floating law. Like this thing about learning. It's actually really fun to be uncomfortable and to push yourself and not forget it. I was a kid whether it was carrying fire mountain sand dunes. Dow. In that can translate to really nice not very useful about lean in, overcoming not struggle. Well, you know, I I gotta ask, you know. Obviously, you know, we'll talk about I guess we can go really deep into your career here. But I kind of want to zero in on on the Olympics. And this is just like I've got all these questions we're going to be about bouncing back and forth here. But like to me like I look at the Olympics. You've been fortunate enough to to run in two Olympics. I mean, how is that as an athlete, you know, because that's the pinnacle. And and I don't care. What sport you're any? Even if you're in a sport that isn't in the Olympics. I mean, that's like that's that's the I mean the Olympics. As far as I'm concerned is the biggest thing ever that happens. You know, what I mean globally once every four years, and how is that to represent your country and just just to be in Olympia. You know, we're not even talking meddling. But there's something special about just actually being there. And you know, and being a part of the Olympics. Right. Absolutely. I mean, the dream ever since I started running that was always the goal, you know, and every athletes will the different that's necessarily everyone. School. But it is for for most people like that's the dream..

"And my wife, and I we'd been coming off in onto flagstaff ever since two thousand and ten I believe it was the fall of two thousand ten and you know, we have up chain of training outlets location boat over the US, and you can all over the world. And when to be on as my first came to fly stuff like I was kinda underwhelms like people were talking it up and say, not great. It was for training and stuff. And I was like, yeah, it's good. You know, but it was just kind of one of those places that just grew on me and grew me and continues to just like blow my mind in terms of like the quality running able to do up here. Just there's just flat dirt roads like everywhere or he'll dirt roads. Like, whatever you're looking for like flagstaff has to offer. So over the years, I'm like, man. This is the best place in the world to train for for distance running in my mind. Anyways. And it's really fun five up here to you the running community being so vibrant, there's in supportive. It's hard to go where in flagstaff, and do you work out without seeing someone else also out there, you know, doing some pretty impressive stuff? So it's just been really really fun place. And we moved here full time last summer this last June. So it feels good to to be up here fulltime in the mountains. Although my girls are having to adjust to snow that's their first time living in the snow. So. I went to graduated from a you. And obviously, I'm from Arizona. But I think that's what I was going to ask. I think a lot of people don't realize, you know, in me spending a lot of time obviously there on campus. But in a you're flagstaff has one of the highest one of the highest elevation tracks. I think indoor tracks in the country, and I know like even on the swimming front a lot of Olympic swimmers go up there because I think it's the highest pool or Olympic size pool in the country is in flagstaff if I'm if I'm right? I mean, but I was wondering if it was the whole training things why you ended up in flagstaff because I think a lot of people don't realize the track that's actually up there. Yeah. Yeah. The civilities up here made. And then also to be honest. A big reason why we came here is there's this easing chiropractor. Go see tippy, actually, even Schaffler on maximum ability. And he's been like one of those guys where in running the name of the game and staying healthy, and you can only eat train as hard as you can stay healthy while touring Email or so he's like a really integral part of of our our plan and strategy to stay healthy and get to the starting on one piece. So that was also kind of a bigger in why we really did up here in, you know, here's a here's a question about you and talking about training and altitude and things like that. And I know like me the my actual I experienced an altitude was actually playing basketball in high school, and I'm from the desert, and we went up to flagstaff from the state championships are in a you. We had a really good team. We went up there. And I gotta tell you man us being at four hundred feet. Playing it altitude. They're in a you is do we were all gasped by the third quarter. There wasn't anything left in the tank, and we got spanked by one of the northern Arizona teams. But use a runner, I mean training it altitude, and then going, you know, to, you know, generally, the Olympics are are, you know, at a city that isn't it altitude like that? I mean, you know, how big of an advantage is it for you guys to train it out to ten. What's the big difference at training it out to toot and then dropping down to to say something around sea level? Yeah. It's a huge advantage. The logically speaking up in your blood work on the show that it's actually actually occur it easier fever.

So I've always been like, you know, talked about taking risk or dreams like having big dreams going out with a bang kind of thing. So I started out with that run which was like fell epoch to me at the time. And this was just kind of a nice way to like bring that full circle. Like have this epic challenge at the end of my career in the opportunity to kind of say goodbye to the sport. They like I loved invested in my twenty years of my life into it was my craft is my passion. It was. You know, what I was going after? So this was kind of nice way for me to like end on this epic challenge. You left your shoes at the finish line? I read. Yeah. I always wanted to do something I kind of hijacked from Olympic wrestler. So after they wrestled their last match. They take their shoes off and they leave him on the mat? And they walk off barefoot. I was like, that's so cool. It's like a like a prophetic active like I entering your mic drop. Yeah. Yeah. My job. Doing that. You know, it really did bring so much closure to my running his.

"So I don't see them like putting a rule out saying that, you know, shoot technologies can be limited. I think it's just gonna keep growing from here in literally like every shoe company now is coming out with their version of the carbon. It's okay. It's just it's which is so funny because I was getting into the sport. My dad took me into running stories like big five. And he'd tell me he's like, you know, it's a really good shoe if you can like bend it in half like really easily, you know, like really flexible, and now it's totally opposite. You get these using try and been it and half in you have to like really wrench on it to bend it at all. It's just super super rich. I've never felt one you haven't fill, and you cannot take that shoe. And that'd be weird. I I don't think you could bend in half. Do you think well ever see a sub two hour marathon in our lifetimes? Yeah, I think so I mean, well, I think the two different questions is will we see an actual race. Or will? We see it in his scenario said not that that doesn't non it doesn't get race interface. I mean, I like to think so like, I always believe that like there's more out there. You know, like breakthrough can keep happening which is why I'm still involved in the sport with coaching. You know, I believe they like my breakthroughs or supposed to lead to someone else's breakthroughs, and we're supposed to build on generations and generations of knowledge and wisdom and what's the half marathon world record fifty fifty eight. I don't know exactly fifty eight twenty something or other. I know. That's it's so generally what they say if you're a really season marathoner you add five or two and a half minutes to your half marathon time, double it. And that's about where you shouldn't land in the marathon. What you did? You ran fifty nine minutes to avoid. That's great. Great. So that's pretty common convergence. So yeah, you're right. We need to see guys fifty seven thirty. Yeah. Which is insane. But we have a lot of guys running well in the half. But in the marathon, Joey gay, and he's just going crazy and hammer and everyone if anyone can do it. It's him for sure. Like, all right. I'll take second. Yeah. He's he's on different planetary now. What about the steps? Founded you talk to me about this. Because I think it's important that. Yeah. I mean, there's focused primarily and THEO piano. You get some stuff over here. But big party all's lives. Yeah. Yes. We started the steps foundation two thousand ten and we did that after partnering with World Vision. They have a team World Vision aspect, and we got involved with them. Help raise clean water for like ninety thousand people in Zambia by just a group of people running the Chicago marathon, it's just like a one off event and clean water for ninety thousand people got to go to be after that. And I'll never forget being at this ribbon cutting ceremony where they're opening a bore hole, and I was talking to random villager. He wasn't like a staffer for World Vision anything, and he's like, you know, because you guys did this like the life expectancy in my village is supposed to go up by like ten years. And I was like how me's that we can run a race and do some fundraising, and it's going to bring ten years of life to these people, especially because it meant the life expectancy was going from like forty to fifty. That's like kids. With their parents or not growing up with their parents. So after that, we kind of went home, and we're like we wanna keep doing stuff like this want to grow and expand. And actually, we came out here to Austin, we had a meal, Doug, and we we're at the live strong foundation and checking out trying to learn from people who've done it before and done it. Well, and. We just want to keep around with it. So yeah, we've gotten to build a clinic in Kenya. Partnering with Wesley career. He won the Boston marathon in maternity ward in Senegal, and then yeah, we're looking to get more and more involved in Ethiopia because they've since closed down international adoption Neath Ethiopia, which there's kind of like mixed feelings about that.

"Go up mountain TOTO. It's this really steep mountain. That's probably like three miles long. And there's these women who are carrying firewood. They collect all this firewood on top of the mountain, then they walked down into the city about three miles to sell the firewood for like a dollar. And it's the most massive load of firewood you've ever seen in your life. Like, it doesn't look like it looks like a strongman competition, but they're literally like these really old ladies, they look like how my grandma looks. And they're carrying these loads of firewood all day long to go down into the village to sell it for a dollar just gives you perspective. You know, we take. We'll just just the elevator story and oil one was. Yeah. Yeah. I wonder what they thought when they got on the escalator. My my all-star Hawn is still will scare to this later. She tries to avoid there. What about all? These new shoes that are out that are supposed to be. Everybody swears by them. Yeah. The Nike four percent or the Adidas which McCall like people swear that. They. Yeah. Do you think they work? Have you tried them? No. I I don't think I I was going to. But but now that I'm a little injured. I don't wanna Chan I'm just gonna run and my actually run in a success. I don't know if you're still an ace guy, not but I had problems for years. Running in my previous sponsor shoes. And we'd get player fasciitis chins of wins. And it was and then when I just got to be able to choose whatever shoes that went into this gel Nimbus, I love the Nimbus cleared up everything I say that non a little, but, but the planner fish, this is like the worst thing. But so I'm just going to run my train choose. Yeah. That's smart. But you think these work I think it's like game changing technology for sure I mean, we've seen some like really big performances with them already Lisette. I haven't personally tried him. So I can't speak to him directly. But just based on the results them seeing. Because when they first came out it was like some like Nike. But then like when the results are. And when I started talking to other pro runners, I was the biggest thing that kind of turn my perspective on there. Like these shoes are unreal. Like like every single person. I've talked to you says a victory. I hear the same thing. I think it's similar to like swimming. You know, where even biking, you know, the technology are always changing growing, and this is one of those things I think it's going to we're gonna have the records like before the shoes and then the records after the shoes, and those will be to kind of had that everybody went they were going to these full body speed suits at the I thought it was just stupid like I get it. If you if you want the times to come down, but like come on. Let's all it's all agree. We're gonna wear Speedo. And like if you're a dude and you're in the Olympics in your swimmer yoked? I mean, you want to win a gold medal, and then be marketable, bro where the Speedo dome. Don't your yoked. You look like like the perfect specimen. Why would you cover it up and look like? He'll like like, you should be campaigning for the Speedo. I mean, I think yeah. I know and I'm not it's not like I'm sitting around going, boys. Put your speed owes on. But I mean, it just from a marketing perspective, and branding, like why would you wanna wear this whole thing scaled it back now they have? So they pulled it back. And so that was my point. I was trying to get to was that a wonder if that happens here is like after a while they go. All right. We played with these shoes. Or maybe maybe unless think about this. They're so hungry to try to for somebody to to break two hours that they're going to say, hey, whatever I mean, it's like baseball, you know, everything like people like seeing home runs. They seem more power. They like seem more speed..

Persona. Non grata. Yeah. He actually went back to Ethiopia recently. So they've had some breakthrough there on they've had some changes in like their leadership and their president and stuff. So I think they're starting to see some breakthrough in some change there, which is really cool. I don't even know where he is in believe that so true. I haven't I'm gonna look it up. I have no idea where it is. I know it's an Africa. But if you told me it was in India. I wouldn't I wouldn't not believe you. That's that's that's that's a problem. So Lancer Adam question. Okay. Speaking of Africa. Have you ever wondered if no genome NS? So just being rude like the watch a documentary with the Rwandan mountain bikers. No. But I know they have a whole whole cycling seen this curious. If you thought I didn't know there was hinged road riders of the mountain bikers.

Right above Kenya. Okay. All those people know how to run around there. Yeah. It's all like high altitude. So like where we train in Ethiopia's nine thousand feet. Yeah. Base up there. Yeah. That's where we're living. Yeah. And like beautiful running just like grass fields that go like five miles and use run around these grass fields. You see why they're good at sports like cross country to impolitely. It's safe you or it's safer. Yeah. I don't know. Exactly. I don't know if I could totally speak to that. But I know they've they've had their moments of tension. But we've been there many times and we've never felt not safe there. They actually have a very like kind of deep respect for foreigners. Which is one of the reasons why we really liked being there. You know? It's like we've been other places where you kind of feel like you're seen is like a dollar Bill is walking around, you know. And we don't feel like that only. Theo every Uber driver in Denver. Everyone of them. Every cabdriver driver is from Ethiopia. That's that's the most youth the opium's I've ever met and they're all super Swede yet. No attitude. No shade. Just. Happy to be there. Happy to be doing whatever they're doing. Yeah.

Are you mean people get I'm kidding people? Get. I went to see Joe Rogan. And he he has his whole thing about these vegans that that believe that that they should their dogs and cats should also be vegan. So he makes fun of these dogs and cats he just the most hate mail the ever gets like the vegan hate now. But anyways back to what we're saying. Like, we believe, and I still believe that you have to have a high carbon one hundred forty miles a week, and you're not eating carbs. You're not you're not doing. Yeah. In a lot of runners like they're scared of him. You know, like even pros like we'll notice that pre these parades Daniels like the Americans it's like like salads meat and like a tiny bit of carbs. And I'm like you're shooting yourself in the foot. You know, you got to have those two endurance. So what are you doing? Now. You're coaching. Yeah. Yeah. So my wife, and I and our kids we moved from reading California to flagstaff, Arizona. Yeah. Yeah. Do your chain fly? No, you're gonna get up to flagstaff been near there. Because Iran, the soup I trail along time ago, and I was just I just flew back in yesterday from Phoenix. I'm one of these hockey parents now got warned my kid just started playing hockey and they're like, dude. Are you ready? I'm like what go to a couple of games. No. It's like a full commitment. We're there for four days like all these different games. Like all these teams from all over the country. I'm like I just went back from Phoenix never been to flag. I did read. I don't know if it's in flagstaff, but if you're living there, you'll know this new James Tyrrell installation, or maybe it's been there for a while. But they're trying to incurred James Tyrrell's. This light artists and a love his work. And nobody goes to this installation sick like an old volcano missus. I'll look it on later and show you, but so you don't live in big. Didn't you live in big beer? I grew up in big bear lake bear. So and now like you've done some some rides and stuff it's beautiful at the great place to around. So why flag so we've gotten to train all over the world like training THEO Pierre training Kenya trained in mammoth. Lakes up big, and we're always seeking out good altitude places and flag. It just has hands down like the best running in terms of like, just roads everywhere. And so as. Runners like we're doing ninety percent of our ruins or on dirt roads. Try and minimize the pound the injuries. Like, that's so so important, rob cars. He there yet. He's east. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We I did a run with him a long long time ago. But yeah, he's he's a talented, and there's so many a lot of. Yeah. It's like we saw MO Farah their number of times. And like, we're friends with all those guys. So it's just it's the perfect place for like a runner to prepare for, you know, I'm trying to get my wife ready for twenty twenty Olympic trials and hopefully they'll Olympic Games. So it's just the perfect place to prepare their out the teed same out the tube is like Kenya's at or parts of the Pius well seven thousand when you so you coach people there, you coach people everywhere. So I coach three pro runners there, including my wife, and then I also do some online coach eight so in those athletes are all over. So if you're ever needing coach, let know. We started. I think once this. I think once this. Marathon's over. I'm going to go back to two wheels. It just it just beat up, bro. Yeah. I can't get it. Here's this two two. So the James Tyrrell, whereas it, Dave. It's outside of flagstaff. You should check it out. I'll show you pictures. It is I don't know where I just read. I don't know where I read is on the internet. And then, you know, Sedona just right down the way from us like our way. So that's supposed to be like some of the best mountain biking in the world from never been up.

"A how do you do that? Like, where's the easy day? Or is there not an easy day? Yeah. Now, there's easy days. There's really easy days. And that's what most people are surprised to hear out hate doing group Browns on easy days people. I think oh he must just motor on his easy days. And I'll just be like hanging on like so tired. So kind of how do is like out have coffee before workouts? And so I'd only have workouts three days a week. But on those workout days like I would just be lots of energy runs, super heart. And you know, but then the next day, no coffee and just like whacks like so tired. I'd be out the back like all the girls are running in front of me. And I just feel like death. But how do you break? I mean is that because it has some of those days has to be there two days or three day. They're all two days except for as a two a day except for the long run. Yeah. Yeah. In the long run is one a day, but between twenty and twenty six miles. Yeah. Okay. Well, that's still means the other days, even easy as you're running twenty miles. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You just get used. It's like anything. That's that's that's not. That's that's like that's like, I don't. I still think that's easier than biking for six. It's not it isn't. That's that is amazing. What do you like what would then what do you eat? I mean, if you're gonna run one hundred four if you run one hundred and forty a week you can eat. I would think you could eat whatever you want. Yeah. Yeah. Now, you're eating a lot. You're eating all day weed eat six times a day, lots of snacks, obviously, like high carb, which is kind of interesting. You know, like now with like different diets out there and stuff and I played with that stuff. I played with Kito. And like did not have a good experience with that at all when you were running. Yeah. Yeah. When I was around professional happen. Have you tried it? Now, probably being a bad mood a lot. Miserable. Yeah. But what I found is like I could go for a long time on Akito diet, but my intensity level was just not good at all. You know? So. I high carbon the best African guys liquid trained in Africa. All the time like we have a pretty unique connection with Africa. And it's funny to me like they'll all see him in New York City marathon Boston marathon, they're walking with these plates of food. And it's like carb like rice with like potatoes with like pasta. And I'm I'm with you totally. We did the same thing. I mean, we we ate spaghetti for breakfast. And guys would like customize it and make different concoctions on just anything that would be encourage you to eat pasta nine in the morning which weird, and then we would we wouldn't have on because we were racing. And then we'd have some potatoes at the finish, like just boiled potatoes. And then at dinner, we'd have more pasta. But you can't ride one hundred miles a day on average for three weeks being Kita genetic or or vegan or being risk can't..

"I was looking at like your guys times and stuff. And you know, of course, I'm not going to be nowhere close to that. But I thought that I could put up a pretty decent Mark. You know? So I go out there, and I just hammers Harz. I can what do you think? I read by probably how long does that climb again, three point something or other probably two minutes, five minutes along. Yeah. Yeah. Five minutes. I was like eighteen thirty. But. But they live in officiant. So then week later, I go back to the hill. I running rent it in twenty minutes. I was like two minutes six to Ronnie stick was just interesting because it's like running and cycling like the intersection of those like a good runner does not make necessarily good cyclists like they're kinda to straighten things closest the closest to running that we get in cycling and mountain biking because the the bike is the. Typically, the climbs are much steeper. So you're out of the saddle. And so your body is it's simulates running. That's the closest you're going to get any running road cycling. Never gets that steep. And you're never you're never that far forward on the bike where you're affecting running on the Biton, but on the mountain bike. You are interesting story about old one hundred road. There's the I think he still has the KOMO on that on Straub is Adrian Costa. Who was this amazing talent? French American kid had one parent was Franch one parent was American kinda split his time. Bit of a head case such a protege such a prodigy that that got to him, and he would quit the sport. And back to the sport. Anyways, amazing town this kid was out like rock climbing like a year ago, like an Iraq fell on this guy and his leg and had amputated like from just above the knee. And it was terrible. I know man, dude. But he still has the KOMO's. Yeah. Yeah. Those guys they're different than like the long distance climbers. Right. Like the big old powerful claws. Three miles is a if it was half a mile that would be a power but half a mile Peterson gone wins three miles will maybe Sagawa still wins. But it's it's that then starts to be a legit client. Yeah. Do you? Remember, what your time was on the I think you remember, Lance? No, no. I don't. No, I never really went out and hammered. Oh, really? It's not that steep though. If I remember man steep, the me fell really all these blinds. So steep round, you have no idea. How that I want you to feel good about yourself? What is the hardest workout you've ever done in your entire career? When you look back at the end of the day. Like, oh my God. That was the hardest thing I've ever. These marathon simulations that we do in preparation for the marathon, we typically do three to four of them the last twelve weeks prior to marathon. And so what we do with those as we go out and do you like a mile easy jog, and then I worked up to twelve miles and you're running one minute per mile slower than marathon pace. So for me be running like five fifty pace give or take Z's. I'm trying out the to you to like seven thousand and then you change your shoes and go straight into twelve mile tempo. Run at goal marathon-based. Hey back mile. So the twelve miles at five forty is nonstop. Yeah. Yeah. I thought you were going to say there's a little break in there and respirate note. Okay now. Yeah. Now, that's the easy part. Now. We've done thirteen miles. Yeah. That's easy. Now, change his shoes angel shoes. And then the best I ever could do it out the Titas I'd run than four forty eight pays for the next twelve miles..

"I think I've seen this. And I didn't quite understand what I was seeing at the time. But in in cycling, we call that motor pacing. So that's a big deal are big part of training. So you'll go out either with a car, ideally with like, a moped something that's real steady not that loud. And and also not that big of a draft on almost like, a, you know might be four or five riders ahead of you and just to increase speed break. So really, anyways, it's really effective workout. So they do that in run. I guess if you're running. You're running third twelve or thirteen miles an hour. That's that's that makes a different yet. So they draft. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, not everyone does this. It's kind of like if you have the luxury of doing it. It's nice. It's also to just nice for a runner mentally to just be able to tune off and not worry about the pace. So like sometimes I'm I'm pacing based on what they're doing. And then oftentimes like I'll be pacing based on what my watch is telling me. So I can lock in like five minute mile says you would need the mirror need to stay right there. Yeah. I thought you were just out riding like giving them sips of water and giving them generals. What do that conversation? Yeah. It is nice half company for that reason in like with marathoning hydration calories makes a big difference and gotta practice taken that in. So no, my coach I have this coach for the marathon. He's always like he's always hammering like practice nutrition practically talking about like just image L every now. And again, we're good. Yeah. But if you don't granted, I'm like a three hour person. Not like two five to forty six. You're still some New York's a tough course. Today. I run to forty six newer now. I wait did. I maybe I did your second to forty six in Boston too. I think didn't he both both courses. Yeah. So there's a lot more there, Lance what you in New York and like to four to five now. So I only ran New York wants. No, I'm sorry Boston Boston to for. But we had a nice tale in that day. So that was whatever what's what is to of forever. Okay. Okay. I've been the thing about this for a long time. We're starting. We're starting the Boston marathon, right? First mile. We have a wicked tale in behind us. And I'm in the lead. And so I have a group of like all African guys sitting right behind me in this guy on the side of the road. He's like Ryan don't let him steal your tail wind. And so I started Email. It was like is that possible like can guys sitting behind you? They technically steal your tail. And if they're right on you. I was like I should ask Lance is because I know you're in wins over all kinds is never heard of that. Okay. Palmeiras hoping to give myself looks how much how strong was the wind. I don't remember the exact remo- would have to be at least stronger, okay than that stronger than than the pace that you're going so yeah, there's there's no headwind at all you'd have been. Right. Yeah. I mean, it was so what is to four average out because this do just broke the world record. And he was like four thirty seven. I think it's four forty four per. I do if my life depended on it which thank God, it doesn't if a head to go down the track. I could not run one four forty four. I don't even think I could run a two twenty two run to twenty two. Yeah. Begging so on funny question or segue with the t o four so week after Boston just ran to four tick the week off by didn't put on a bunch of weight. Like, I typically would after marathon. So I was still in like good shape. Pena? I'm at Stanford 'cause we were trained in there, and I got into cycling. So I know Christly, I don't know if you know him travelling in very, yeah. Yeah. So he with track they hooked me up with a nice bike. So I'd use it for cross training from time to time. So I decide are I'm gonna go see what I can do on old lawn to road. And I know, you know. Yeah. Estrada segment. So I go there. And like I said, I'm in top form..

"So when I got into it like, my my bench PR was like my body weight, which was like one hundred and thirty seven pounds as in you know, same with deadlocked in squad. Just like, so we I mean being a professional runner like, you just gotta be that way. You know, like you got to have nothing up top in trying to get his lean as you possibly can. So I had nowhere to go up and also to it was a nice thing for me transition to because after being pretty hard on my body in requiring so much of it for twenty years running hundred mile weeks. It was ready for me to like start giving back to, you know, you know, running such accountable IC activity, whereas weightlifting is totally Hannibal. So it was like a fun fun challenge. From you take on. I love like the eating aspect of it too. You know, because in running it's like similar to like use likely like Wayne out food or being very specific. Yes. As lean as you can to do the opposite of that. And be like, I'm going give my body more than so it can build muscle. But you felt like from what I've read you felt like at the end of your career, your body was just, and I totally believe this because I've run enough in my life that this is what happens that, you know, the running running just isn't a great sport for for the for life. Right. It's not anything that. I don't think you can do. Forever unless you're really special, and so there's a lot of imbalances with running and there's a lot of injury with running. You just felt like at the end of your career getting based on what I read that. You were just off the Mahdi was just off. Yeah. Yeah. What I did was. I just look back at the big picture, you know, 'cause very aware of how easy it is to make bad decisions in the wake of like one, bad, performance or one bad workout. So I knew I didn't wanna do that. But I remember being on an airplane Africa where I was going, but just kind of reevaluating like the last four years since the last Olympics, which was London twenty twelve and just taking a good look at myself, like an honest, look and be like listen like my body. I've tried everything I tried working with bunch of different coaches. I tried different nutrition plans different training plans, which was cool for me. Now as a coach because I have learned from all that experimentation. But nothing I was doing was working. So it was just like super obvious like now's the time. Like, I'm not I'm not turned the ship around like this is slowly going down. And that's a painful process for professional athletes. At least it was for me. You know, like feeling us yourself slide slide slide, and it's like the harder. You try the worst. You get you know. So I just made the decision like I felt like I was telling me like it's not supposed to last forever for anyone like professional athletics. Like, no one plays to other like ninety five because we have any endurance any any stuff? And you write a is all Jim work on the bike like two three hours a day, but twelve miles per hour eleven miles per hour. So that's basically coasting unless you're going up hill. Yeah. I thought you'd appreciate that sentence Bill. That's good. It's not appeal. It's fun. But I'm consistent. I can ride exactly like eleven point one miles because that's your with runners. Your or your wife or yes? Other bike put music on there. I've got the MIR on there, which my brother, Chad, he's super Indus cycling. He's actually like top ten Leadville in the mountain bike. Yeah. This last year not easy to do these days. Yeah. Like, you know. The the, you know, then never mind, but the but now that's hard to do top. There's probably sub seven. Yeah. Well, anyways, he's giving me a hard time because I have like the near on there looking out. This is like you can't be putting him you're on your boy. So you can see I can see behind me, otherwise I'd like this because I wanna keep I'm breaking windfarm. So I want them to be as close to me as possible. So that have to always know where they're. Okay. So that's crazy. Right. So we just let me get my head around this for a second..

"It really wasn't until I got into weightlifting after I retired from get to the, and that's that's what actually finally made it go away to where I don't feel it anymore because before out sit in a car, and you just be like throbbing this, you know. So let's get it. Because a lot of the people that listen to this show also are or watch the show. They don't do both. I hope but maybe they do. Maybe I do hope I don't know. But for those watching them, and you just can't just sitting here. And of course, it was big news when you. Retired and started powerlifting and put on weight. And but it's the the the physical changes are are pretty amazing. So what do you weigh right now? Man. Stuck at one eighty three one eighty three step on the scale start jumping on like come on. It's kind while eighty three. And then what did you run the peak of your career? How much did you weigh? That's interesting question that be kind of fun to dive into because I think there's some crossover recycling there. And actually like you would you would mention an interviews and stuff when you're doing the tour kind of affected. How I looked at it is well, remember like you were talking about being on that razor's edge. She know coming into your race. Wait, like, I don't I forget what it was. We two of the two or you know, where you finally hit your raceway and then putting on a bunch of weight afterwards. So I kind of followed that protocol throughout my career. But what I found is when I was at my lightest, I was actually my worst. But that was when I took it too much to an extreme. So to answer your question, I'm five ten and outrace it like one hundred thirty seven pounds in my best. But I did dirt later on my career. I got down to one hundred twenty seven pounds and that was. Three and a half years ago. And so I went from that got into weightlifting, which is also kind of a funny story that will get into excited to hate lifting waves, so a good forty fifty pounds. Yep. And so I always tell people like if feels really good walking around now. Like, I feel good when I'm not running. But I'm running I feel terrible. It's a completely different since he ran right now. Yeah. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. Two hundred percent different people if people well, just a ten pound weight, vests, just go put it on and go run around the block, and let us know how that feels. It's if you ever want to be inspired to lose ten pounds. Go do that. That's what because that's exactly what granted it's a little the economics are a little different in the flow is different. But that's what it is like insane for riding bikes. And I agree with you like, it's a, you know, there's there's a there's a balance there because if you're to lean in to skin your fragile and the elements get to especially in the tour where it's eh did you ever get to that point where you were like over the line to to lean those bitches of your super super lean super lean but not anything compared to what the other guys were. Now, they're even leaner today. These guys are crazy Lee. I don't see how they could be leaner than only in your. I mean, I was one hundred and sixty five pounds. Yeah. But a lot of that. I mean is like almost all muscle that was like swimmer body swimming. Yeah. Right. And so the first time so you hear you. I just can't imagine like a hundred and thirty five pounds. You're like I'm going to go down to the gym walk in like, where's the weights? He would do to like wrong place, bro. Right. I mean. No. Yeah. It was like she was on at home. Nobody's looking I just put a hat on and put the brim real just try not to look at anyone. Try not to notice that like all the women in the gym where lifting more than ours..

He is one of the guys at American top team in terms of coaching former fighter himself Conan Silveira is here. Hi conan. How are you? I how you doing guys. Oh, good. Very happy. I couldn't be more happy than you know, with this this big an quotable Feis Sidoti. Let's talk about the win. It couldn't have gone much better. But did you think it was going to go like that Coenen?

I'll answer the question he explained you guys name. I number one. I made them never changed. She doesn't have a gals training foreigners has only main trading partners. Secondly, I just know every single fighter things change with her. Some of the guys don't like train with her because she hates hard. So I think that that was a pretty much a good explanation. You know, she hates like men. And the way in which she put down Ronda Rousey and cyborg certainly proof of that. But it's more than just her power. Right. She has good accuracy good finishing instincts. When you think about her as a striker, what are all the things in your mind that she really excels at. Let me let me put it this way. I, and I think that the best way for people to understand you'd be you gotta compare a complete, and they may fight a as a bass actor, you know, when you acting and you try just be just do one type of character. He's like because the good guy be good guy. Amy move. You do he's not going to get you. I'll Oscar she's a actor or actress that she came place anything there's some better. So you see as acting and you see as a fi see she plays that you've seen. Do you think character for every fight? So for every movie Choubey you in person.

"And even though it's been a winding road and a lot of years have been taken off out of the ring. Unfortunately, I think had four. Dropped years almost of non-competition as a result of people not willing to get into the ring, but was been training every day and always working on striking. And I'm glad that I went that route. What do you make of this? I'm going to ask this question. A couple of ways a lot of people always ask it about. I hear your little one there. I hope everything's okay. Yes. No. Whereas don't worry about it. It's it's quite as sounds very cute. The point. I wanted to make was as follows a lot of people make a couple the camera just a little bit because we can't all we can do see they're a little more hair. It is. Yeah, we got. No, you're good. You get people. Make this argument got a face for radio. There enough. But here's the point. I hear a lot of people make the argument year from hoist Gracie all the time. It's like oh. Modern jitsu sucks. And look it is what it is people are going to respond to incentives and rule sets. And that's going to be the thing. I think it was kind of different though, for me is the professionalization of jujitsu where you have all of these tournaments outside of the IB JJ of circuit that Keenan Cornelius, for example, he said openly. Yeah, I just really don't need to go into a, and I wonder is that a good thing for jujitsu because it allows it to just be itself rather than being some kind of technical applicant to 'em may does that make sense. Absolutely. I'm glad to see that. There's a new for people that want to grapple at a very high and professional level to carry on doing that and making money that that wasn't really there when I was there. But I'm honestly, I'm I'm much happier fighting, but I know that some people don't some just don't like fighting, and they prefer to grapple for jitsu. And I think that's phenomenal ci- fine. I'd say the jujitsu is definitely gotten more professional a lot of things have also gotten like they've got brighter. Whites more, you know, flashy shit around and it gives the impression of higher level and professionalism, which I would I would take some issue with. But, but ultimately, I it is nice to see guys like in feeling that if he wants to stay in jitsu that that he can make a good living doing. So, you know, and I think that's great and pushes the jitsu world forward. And it keeps people there that being said is, you know, like, it's I feel very fortunate to have come up in a time in jujitsu where mixed martial arts was was the end goal was the thing that you look to. I remember being on teams where you look around. And there were some of us that we're jitsu guys. Some of us that were anime oriented, and there was never any disrespect towards the Zizi side. And that's something that I that. I really enjoyed. I really still love to JC very much. But there was always an understanding of. Hey, don't get it. Twisted. There's fighting, and then there's this other thing this grappling. And you know, and again was there was never that that misconception in my mind that they were one in the same. And as the rule sets like you said people respond to the sentence that are their competitors going to do that as well. They should intelligent better as well. Always try to find their way through the through the holes. But. That being said, you know, I'd like to see a little bit more cross-pollination because just culturally jitsu, I find him noxious at this point. Yeah. Well, it's weird. We go to like a US grappling tournament and people are mean mugging each other. It's like, Steve you're an account had ever seen. But the toughest accountant on the road. You know, what the fuck you doing guy? It's it's embarrassing..

I share a lot of details with you on that. It's going to be amazing. It really is. I couldn't sort of curb your enthusiasm very excited your favorite call from any FOX broadcast. You didn't know what I mean by that is not necessarily nearly as a fan. But when you when you were called up look because look your job is a calling you are called upon to be the voice of that action of that moment of that fight. So when you think about, and I'm asking for a lack of humility from your point, I suppose, but some kind of moment from those FOX broadcasts that you think just it all came together for you. You know, it's tough, right? Because obviously a lot of the big fights on those Faulk shows ended up landing on pay per view. You know, one memory. I just have to share as when it was Mark Hutton Bigfoot Silva, the consensus greatest heavyweight fight and UFC history. December of two thousand thirteen in Brisbane, Australia, those Australia shows happened in the morning. You know, I'm on a treadmill at three AM, I fights at like seven and here marquan Bigfoot Silva or engaging in this just epic fight. And and I've never seen anything like it live and in color like that. And it's you know, one o'clock in the afternoon. I'm just praying that people back in the states, you know, during football season or flipping the channel in a Griffin Bonner like way to try to ingest what I think has to be the best sporting event that anyone has seen in six or eight weeks. So there were so many moments like that, you know, I think being able to lend my voice to some of these bigger moments. You know, I really learned the bottom half of this roster. So intimately over a large amount of years. Right. So when I did get. Elevated and had the opportunity to be a part of these big shows. It really was exciting because I felt like I had spent so much time devoting myself to fighters that needed to become household names. And then all of a sudden, you're calling the fights with the big names. And you know, you just try to let the skills takeover, man. I never I never think about a call before it happens. And you know, just try to get out of the way and do the best job. I can man, but it's the greatest job in the world. And I'm thankful to have it at least here as we go to twenty nineteen last question before legit go. How has broadcasting changed since you begin involved in all let's go back to you. Let's see two thousand eight which is also broadcasting but from one hundred news desk, but in terms of the call fights, how has it changed? Well, I think it's changed in so far as the UFC has embraced a lot of people with sports television background and our group. Our producers Craig bore sorry leads this group now, Zac Candido and Michael plant and Mike Ricci, and these guys just do an outstanding job particularly with these analysts. Right. I mean, I think when you look at the top eight guys we have our color guys are the best and can compete with any sport in the world. And there's a lot of good coaching going on, you know, I do think that there's been an embrace of the sports TV thing. Right. Like you look at other broadcasts Lukin. They don't look or sound necessarily like ours. Right..
