"I <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Silence> <Advertisement> always <Speech_Female> try to celebrate that <Speech_Female> finish line <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> when you do go to the big races <Speech_Female> and there are people cheering <Speech_Female> for you and <Speech_Female> you see your family. <Speech_Female> I mean, there's nothing <Speech_Female> beats that finish line feeling. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> So <Speech_Female> that's my <Speech_Female> favorite part. And <Speech_Female> then <Speech_Female> I get this question a <Speech_Female> lot as a triathlete <Speech_Female> and as somebody who <Speech_Female> covers the sport <Speech_Female> as a writer, <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> you go to, I <Speech_Female> say, go to a race. <Speech_Female> If you're not <Speech_Female> sure about <Speech_Female> it, go <Speech_Female> to a local triathlon, <Speech_Female> watch, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> take your kids, or <Speech_Female> take your husband <Speech_Female> or whatever, go, <Speech_Female> go by yourself, <Speech_Female> just go and watch. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> you will be <Speech_Female> convinced that <Speech_Female> you can do it because <Speech_Female> you're going to see <Speech_Female> people of <Speech_Female> all ages, <Speech_Female> all <Speech_Female> body types, <Speech_Female> you're going to see <Speech_Female> somebody <Speech_Female> who looks like you <Speech_Female> out there, hopefully, <Speech_Female> that you can see yourself <Speech_Female> doing it. <Speech_Female> I think that's the best <Speech_Female> way. You can also volunteer, <Speech_Female> or you <Speech_Female> can do a relay. And <Speech_Female> I think just getting your <Speech_Female> little toe in and just <Speech_Female> seeing, <Speech_Female> seeing yourself out <Speech_Female> there is the best way <Speech_Female> to actually <Speech_Female> take that next step <Speech_Female> to <SpeakerChange> sign up and <Speech_Male> do it. <Speech_Female> Nice, nice. <Speech_Female> That's a great, great <Speech_Female> tip. <Speech_Female> Liz, what do <SpeakerChange> you like? What's your favorite part of triathlon? <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I like the run. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I come <Speech_Female> from a, I know who <Speech_Female> does. Well, <SpeakerChange> some people don't. <Speech_Female> I come from <Silence> a running background, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and so I <Speech_Female> love knowing <Speech_Female> that the race <Speech_Female> finishes with <Speech_Female> something I like <Speech_Female> to do and <Speech_Female> something that comes easier <Speech_Female> to me. <Speech_Female> And it's just a <Speech_Female> great feeling to be out <Speech_Female> there running <SpeakerChange> and passing <Speech_Female> people and cheering people <Speech_Female> on. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Mice advice would <Speech_Female> be just to <Speech_Female> take that first step. It <Silence> is the hardest <Speech_Female> part, <Speech_Female> but once <Speech_Female> you take it, you will not <Speech_Female> regret it. You will not cross <Speech_Female> the finish line at a triathlon <Speech_Female> and think gee, <Speech_Female> I wish I didn't do <Speech_Female> that. <Speech_Female> It doesn't happen, right? <Speech_Female> So <SpeakerChange> just <Speech_Male> take that first step. <Speech_Male> I like it. <Speech_Male> I like it. All right, <Speech_Male> Jen, <Speech_Male> it's harder <Speech_Male> to give advice <Speech_Female> because there's some good advice already <Speech_Female> out there. But first, what's <Silence> your favorite part <SpeakerChange> of a <Speech_Female> triathlon? <Speech_Female> Well, that's easy. <Speech_Female> For me, it's a <Speech_Female> swim, but <Speech_Female> and it's the <Speech_Female> mass start swims <Speech_Female> that we used to do in the old <Speech_Female> school. <Speech_Female> Old days where <Speech_Female> everybody lines up and <Speech_Female> you run into the water. <Speech_Female> So I missed that. <Speech_Female> That's my favorite <Speech_Female> part. It's the most intimidating <Speech_Female> part, and <Speech_Female> it's the scariest part. <Speech_Female> That's <Speech_Female> why, <Speech_Female> but I love the pure <Speech_Female> competition in the <Speech_Female> rawness of it. So <Speech_Female> I would say the start of the <Silence> open water <Speech_Female> swim. <Speech_Female> And it <Speech_Female> wasn't like that for me <Speech_Female> in the beginning. <Speech_Female> I used to cry in the <Speech_Female> water when I started triathlon. <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> would pull over <Speech_Female> and cry my goggles <Speech_Female> and say, I <Speech_Female> hate this, this needs to <Speech_Female> be over. So <Speech_Female> I've been there. And I <Speech_Female> come from a swim background. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> And then <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> best advice, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Elizabeth and <Speech_Female> Sarah gave great advice. <Silence> My thing is, <Speech_Female> <Silence>

"And people loved it. That sounds so fun. You designed all of this with your yeah. It was great. Well, it sounds like the perfect introduction to triathlon. And really a fun weekend. So yeah, I love it. This is a grassroots sprint triathlon. And if you're not a beginner, you know, you can come and race, right? I mean, you don't have to be so if this is something that's interesting to you. And again, I know those emphasize this, but I want to make it very clear. This is not the xterra. There's not you're not going to be doing crazy downhills on your mountain bike. It's going to be, it is very, very beginner friendly. And I love that and I love the vibe, but those races because, you know, triathlons definitely, I think. I mean, I know once you get into that scene, it feels very inclusive, but from the outside it can feel very intimidating. And this race that you're talking about, the Ford's triathlon feels like a party at a block party. With a little activity throw it in, right? Yeah. Really friendly and like you said, don't let off for off road is just a term. It's a long a canal. So a lot of it is very, very flat. Nice, nice. So Jen, why are you excited about the race like a mother program? I mean, kind of throwing in some extra things. I mean, your programs are already great and prepare people for any race, but kind of throwing in the little extra accessories and pizzazz. What do you like about that? Yeah, you know, I just like Elizabeth and I have the opportunity to look at the athletes maybe a little bit closer with the analysis, either they're swim or the run, which I always think is so valuable, it just one or two things to work on, whether it's any sport for anything that we do, no matter how seasoned you are or how new you are, it's good for everybody..

"That segues nicely to this. Liz, you emailed me last winter, or last year, I guess, with an idea to get to do a live triathlon race, you know, not knowing where we'd be in the pandemic, but we actually had planned one of these pre COVID, but that didn't get off the ground. The universe had other intentions for us. But the race this summer, though, I'm pretty confident we'll get going and I'm really, really excited about it. So I'm gonna walk through the program, and then I want you to tell people about the race Liz. So it's called a race like a mother programs we've done this with the twin cities, marathon, and we've done it with a Kansas City marathon. We did those in, I believe, 2019. And what it is is that we just add an extra layer of preparation and hands on coaching plus a whole team of women doing the exact same thing. So when you get to the event, you feel just super prepared, super supported and it's really fun. I mean, if anyone has gone to a race by themselves or with their reluctant family members that are like, why did you drag me here? This has got a very different vibe because everyone, it's kind of got that party like atmosphere, and it really makes a difference knowing that you're going to see somebody out on the bike course or waiting to go into the water and someone who's trained with virtually for 12 weeks. So the race where targeting is called the forge triathlon and it's in Lamont, Illinois, which is about 30 minutes outside of Chicago so nice central Midwest location. The race is on Saturday, July 23rd, and you don't have to remember all this. I'll link to the program in the show notes and you can go back and look at your calendar that kind of thing. But I'm just letting you know. So at the end of July, July 23rd. And like I said, it's a 12 week program, so you're going to get the sprint triathlon program, you Jen talked about swim analysis. So both Jen and Liz do run for analysis and swim form analysis, so you can pick which one you want, and they're going to give you some feedback on some videos and some tips on things to work on. Some good swag are typical awesome train like a mother's swag. In addition, you'll get another mother's runner swim cap, a triathlete tea, we're going to have a group call with a sports psychologist. We're going to have webinars with the coaches. We are going to have some kind of gathering on July 22nd to celebrate the fact that we are going to do a sprint triathlon the next day. And then you get a discount on the registration fee as well. So that's a lot to go through. Just so the races at the end of July, the 12 week training program starts on May 2nd. So all that said, Liz. Tell us why you've chose this race. Yeah, so this was a race that I started last year with a friend and actually he was a former athlete of mine. And it's situated at the forge, which is North America's largest outdoor adventure park. And one of the founders is a very passionate triathlete. He's done Kona. He's done many, many triathlons, and he was super excited to have us bring triathlon to the forge. And Dave, the other race director and I were really excited to bring off road triathlon two Illinois..

"So the more you are exposed to that open water situation, which is different than the pool. There's no lane lines. You can't see the bottom. There could possibly be critters down there. The water can sometimes be choppy or smooth. The only way you're going to get through that is through it. So getting out there and practicing and you'd be surprised in a lot of communities, there are open water swimmers, you know, groups that meet at these bodies of water and they swim together, or even, you know, a lot of us, especially here in the Midwest, there's a Lake and it has like a roped off little area where there's a guard and you can just swim around the little lane line that they have. So I would just encourage people just find opportunities in your area, look and see if they exist and then get out there and practice and practice and practice. If you do not have open water, you can simulate some of the conditions in a pool, you know, some pools have deep wells and you can just get comfortable with swimming there where you can't touch the bottom. You can swim and close your eyes from time to time. You can have a friend in front of you kicking really hard with fins and just making that water very turbulent so you have to get used to it, but just get comfortable and familiar with it. I would add, I mean, seriously, you guys, when you guys coached me last summer for the aquabike you were like, okay, time to get to open water, and I was like, oh, it's such a pain. But it made such a difference, right? It was a commute, and I had to, but I felt very comfortable in the water after that. I mean, and my first race that I did last spring, I definitely had moments where I was like, oh gosh, this is not as easy as I remember it being. You know, and had to take a couple of breaststrokes and that's fine. I mean, you can absolutely in any race. And we'll talk about this in a second, but you can breaststroke, you can backstroke, you can, you can even hold on to that they have canoes and kayaks out there. You can hold on as long as you don't get assistance from them, right? Yeah, and a lot of races they offer the red cap and that means that you might need extra assistance and it just indicates to the volunteers that this person might need a little bit of extra eyeballs on them. So for anybody who's super afraid of the water, you can do that. You can talk to the race director. This is my first time triathlon. And I'm nervous about the swim..

"One day off a week, one other day a week where it's likely just swimming or no legwork, but that would be a pretty well rounded program doing each sport three times a week. And I'm sure I can't recall off the top of my head, but I am sure we snuck in a run off of the bike there from time to time to do what in triathlon is known as a brick workout where you go from bike and then you quickly transition to the run. Nice. And that's because that is one of the hardest things. I think to especially if you're coming as a straight up runner, your legs feel very different after they've swum and swamps, wham. I don't know what the right way to conjugation is there, maybe Sarah, do you know? Don't put me on the spot. Okay, just give me a hard time. After your legs have been in the water and been on a bike and you get off and you get into the run and your legs feel like what Liz typically. Well, they feel like a load of bricks, don't they? Yeah. But yeah, you know, in triathlon, we never run fresh, we never technically feel good when we run, so the more you practice that swimming to biking and swimming to running because think about it, as you get out of the water, you're going to run right away. So the more you practice those transitions and those uncomfortable feelings, the more familiar they are in race day. Nice nice. Well, and can you talk a little bit about I kind of mentioned it at the beginning, but the diversity of training, how that is helpful or can be beneficial, especially if you're an injury prone runner, not naming any names, or if you are wanting to switch it up a little bit, right? Yeah, so, you know, it's most basic level getting fit is just about challenging your heart. And you will do that in all three sports, swimming biking and running. And the beauty of it is that two of those sports, there is no load on your body because you're not burying your own weight. So, you know, what becomes problematic with some runners is just absorbing that load in those forces from the ground and if you're not strong enough or you have faulty biomechanical issues, then you become just kind of like an injury prone. But in swimming, you're just supported by the water. It's a wonderful, full body workout. You will find muscles. You didn't know you had. And then I find swimming actually transfers really well to running. And then in cycling, you're just pushing the bike, but the nice thing about cycling is if you can keep your cadence up, it tends to transfer really well to running. So all three sports kind of have, you know, what you can think of as cross pollination effect. There are all sort of complimenting each other and feeding on each other and your heart is still getting that workout and building fitness as opposed to just straight up running day after day. So Jen, what are some of the biggest issues either physical or mental that you see the first time triathletes encounter? I think some of the physical ones are a little bit easier to address because that's people going because it translates over to running. The community too is that they go too fast too hard too much too soon. So, you know, we get athletes and they're not paying attention to any kind of feedback..

"Can be done honestly indoors on a spin bike, a peloton or Nord track, a spin class, and you don't have to have a really fancy bike either. The first triathlon I did was on a borrowed boyfriend's mountain bike. So it doesn't have to be sophisticated. Yeah, my first bike was my hybrid that, you know, I got from a garage sale. So they're not fast, but you can get it done. And you can get the feel for a triathlon. So otherwise with equipment while we're on that topic, Liz, do you have a recommendation for first timers as far as cycling goes? Is it, do you want to get something that's like a lighter bike or can you just start with like we did with these any bike that you can pick up? I would start with any bike, but I would definitely start with a trip to your local bike shop to make sure that any bike is safe to ride outside. Is the chain is the chain still good or the brakes still working, check the tires, the inner tubes, you know, a lot of people pull their bike out of the garage and it's been there for 15 years and it's been rusted and the tires are flat. So just make sure for your own safety, you're starting with a bike that has all the basics covered with the brakes and the cables and the chain and the tires. And then from there, if you're thinking about, well, maybe I want to buy a bike. I always say to people think ahead, what are you going to realistically use this bike for? Are you one and done with the triathlon? Do you think maybe there's a future, do you ride mostly on pavement or trails? Are you going to do long tours on your bike? And then that can help you make your decision. And so for Jen, circling back to swimming, as far as equipment goes, you know, a lot of people are runners here..

"Backgrounds, anyone and everyone. If you're just looking for something different to do, whether you've had a string of injuries as a runner or you've always wanted to try one. I think triathlon just opens its arms and welcomes everyone. So Jen, you don't have to be someone who swam in high school or even knows how to change a flat tire. No, no, not at all. Absolutely not. Because the turf on community just like the wrong community is super supportive. So you'll find peers and Friends and groups and coaches that will help you through all that. So no, no, you don't have to have anything. You just have to have the desire and the discipline to follow a plan or to do your own stuff to do the trial. Yeah. Cool. Well, so Jen, you are a you are, so let's settle that. Is it, how do you say app with that? Aquathon. Okay, so I think in my opinion. I am a triathlete magazine contributor. So I'm gonna stay in my ground on this. All right. All right, okay. Anyway, so you are swimming very year, you know. You're 6° from, oh my gosh, what's her name? Misty. Not that fast. I just like to swim. But I love swimming. Yes, I grew up swimming. I didn't swim in college, though. I'm not that fast, but I do like it. All right. Well, so I think that's one of the biggest hurdles is knowing about the pool and being feeling confident and being able to move forward in the pool, right? For progress. So what kind of swimmer do you have to be to try a sprint triathlon? And we're going to talk mostly about sprint triathlons today. If you're new to triathlon, a sprint triathlon is about a 750 meter swim 500 to 750 meters depending upon the situation about a 12 mile bike and then a 5 K run..

"Training for and racing and endurance events. I'm Demi McDowell, cofounder of another mother runner. And I am Sarah wasner Flynn, Demi, it's so great to be with you today. It is. And it's a good Friday afternoon here. Love recording of podcast on a Friday afternoon. Very windy here in Maryland, though. I was blue over on my run this morning. Oh my gosh. Wow. Wow. Well, I'm glad you're running and not on your bike because we are going to talk about cycling today. Today's topic is one that I just love, love, love, triathlon. More specifically, how to get started in triathlon. If you have even the slightest interest in trying to triathlon this summer, this podcast is going to tell you how to do it and likely tip you over the edge, especially because you've got a new race like a mother program where you can come to do a sprint triathlon in Chicago with a team full of your AMR teammates. So Sarah, before we get going, you are a triathlete, an accomplished triathlete. Do you know how many you've done? Do you keep track of that kind of thing? Oh, no, I can't keep track. I mean, I would say, I was doing like 15 and season at some point, like that. Oh, wow. I would say I've probably done like 40, 50, maybe small. Let's talk about sprints, a quaff alons, you know, all different multi sport events. I was in it really hot and heavy, pre-pandemic. All right. And a quasi lens you're talking about. Is that an aquathon? Is that how you say that? I don't even. I think there's an extra element there. I've went to the national championships and I believe they were calling a Quetta. So yeah, but potato potato, right? I guess. Yeah, that's cool. And is that a swim or run swim run or what is that? Yep, exactly. It was a, what do we do?.

"Cool heads prevail. For sure. Yeah. Yeah, I like what you said about it's part of the process. Like you like growth can be and oftentimes is uncomfortable. Oh yeah. And you know, it makes sense. It makes sense. If you are trying to literally change who you are, then your reality must change. You know, the surrounding reality is going to change itself too. That means the relationships that you have will shift, some of them will fall off altogether because they are no longer a vibrational match with the person or the version of yourself that you are now vibrating at. You know, that level. And that's if you can find peace with that and almost embrace it. With love and compassion and acceptance that this is part of the process. And that it's always going to be this or something better. It's never going to be this or something worse. If you are making and acting or thinking and acting in a way that is an alignment with the person that you really are, it's always going to continue to get better. And I truly believe that. So that can be a scary thing while it's happening because it's what's familiar to you. It's what you've always known. It's the relationships you've had. It's the circumstances around you. It's the job that you're in. It's the amount of money that you're making. All of these things are what you've known and that can be comfortable. And whenever those things start to shift, that's when the fears pop up and you're like, I don't know, do I really need to make this change in my life? But this person was there for me at one point. But now they no longer support this new version of myself that I'm trying to be, like, how do I handle that? You know, if you can go into those situations with love and compassion and like you said, conviction. With trusting that if you continue to act in and make decisions and distill them down through that lens of whatever, you know, your values are or your priorities are or your things that you commit to, then you will always be exactly where you need to be. Like you will end up where you are supposed to be. And if not, it's going to present a new universe will present a new situation, it'll present a new circumstance, it will present a new relationship that will reveal to you a new lesson that you have to learn. You know, like you can you can take a look at your past history as something that happened to you or you can look at it as something that happened for you for your greatest evolution. And if you can look back at your past and recognize that all of those dark moments, all of those hard times, all of those breakups, those heartbreaks, all of those are revealing to you, clear and clearer the thing that you truly want. And you need that contrast. You need that the highs and the lows to really get clear on the type of person that you want to be on the type of life that you want to live and the type of relationship that you want to have with other people. And you can find peace in that in many ways. That's a peaceful thought to know that this is all happening part of some it's part of some bigger, incomprehensible plan that is always going to work out for the best. Yeah, for sure. I mean, I just saw something like a day or two ago. And it was one of those like, what would you tell your 20 year old self? You know, something like that. And you see that in so many different ways shapes and forms. And it was weird because I kind of got to. Not like stumped myself, but one of my first thoughts was like, oh, I'd tell myself to get sober. You know, like then, not wait another 7 years. And then I was like, no, actually. Like because then I would miss out on so much that I needed to know. You know? Like if I didn't continue to go down that road, what would my life actually look like? You know? Like I have no idea and I'm actually not even interested in that story. You know, like, where I'm at right now, has shown to be so true. And, you know, like, in alignment with that same person, the same person that I've always known that I was, like, if I follow the timeline all the way back to childhood, you know, in my initial core values, it's like I feel like these last years for sure, it's like I'm finally singing that song. I'm finally living that life. And it might look a lot different or be like further down the road than I had planned, but man, if I had gotten sober when I was younger or never even became an alcoholic like fuck, what would my life look like? You know? It might be boring as hell. You know? Like I probably wouldn't be doing Iron Man triathlon and like, you know, hanging out with you in fucking living it up on the beach. Like, probably not. I don't know. Like who knows? Or I'd be like, you know, whittling chairs and organ or something, which is probably maybe still be dope. But it's not like what I like right now. I see you're on your highest timeline. Yeah, for sure. That's what I'm saying. Yeah, it's like what it could have been. It's all relevant. It's irrelevant because it didn't happen. Exactly the way it was supposed to happen and it couldn't have happened anyway, any differently because it didn't and you are here now on this timeline, and again, if you look back on that with the lens of, everything happened perfectly. Yeah. Everything happened is happening for me in all moments and the universe is not some evil, you know, thing that is working against me in all moments, it's always conspiring to work with me and inform my greatest evolution. Yeah, I mean, there's lessons to be learned in every single day of your life. You know, like so many people get tripped up on the like. Am I doing the right thing? Am I going to was this the right person to be around or is this that I say the right thing or why am I doing this or why am I doing that? And it's like, well, let's just look at the lessons that we can learn and how that they can how they are even if they even are relevant to your core values and your projected goals that you've set for yourself. Because usually if you even get to that point, you realize that, you know, maybe this person might not even have any goals projected. Or they might not even understand fully with their core values are. So it's like, okay, well, let's start there. You know, like let's break out a pen and fucking, you know, a piece of paper. And let's write down some goals and let's write down some things because how are you supposed to even answer these questions if you don't have some sort of format? You know, to process them through. Where are you going to see the lessons in the things if you're just like look in the fuck around, you know? And just wandering through like your own thought process. There's no bones there, you know? And so with just even a quick like, you know, analyzation of like, okay, well, what do I want? You know? And then let me look at this situation and funnel it through those things. And then it's like, oh, okay. Well, there's this, this and this that I can take away from it. Well, let me let me pull that into tomorrow. And what can I do tomorrow and who can I be tomorrow to get one step closer to that thing I want or that person that I want to be, you know? And so it's like, there's so many answers like so many like tangible mechanical ways to answer existential crisis that we aren't using on a daily basis. One thing I can say for sure, is it's not reading another Instagram slide. Like, that's not going to solve your problems. Like, let's put the phone down and let's fucking talk to ourselves. Let's do some work. You know, maybe go out for a run. See.

"Missed that. And so for me getting back out was great for me it was great for the community it was great for those people that had their journey alongside our journey. A lot of people are struggling. I mean, COVID happened and the world shut down and a lot of depression and anxiety happened and Utah happened to be one of the states from the outside looking in. We're like, we had still an opportunity to go outside and do stuff. And it was really great. And a lot of those people before, you know, we just come out of winter. And so people have been trapped inside and COVID and no families and a lot of people lost jobs. And so this was a project where it kind of like gave a lot of people hope and purpose alongside of what we were doing. This is the real story behind the story. There's a lot of focus on how did you do the hundred and the particulars of that and the family journey that entailed. But truly, it's the community piece. And you know, it was so impactful to visit and see not only your town come out and support. It's such a beautiful expression of solidarity, all these people who were just there for you guys and every which way. And then on top of that, all these people who flew in or drove in from all parts of the country all parts of the world, I met people from Eastern Europe, flew out to have this experience to share this experience with you, people who were inspired by what you were doing and what you were sharing online and just so many lives transformed. And I think that gets to this piece about finding the blessings in the misfortunes, like the fact that you were compelled to walk actually made it more accessible for a lot of people. And I think brought a larger people. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It became something that people could wrap their heads around like joining you for a long walk. It was so beautiful. That part of it. Yeah, I can't tell you how many times every single day one Casey would do kind of a roll count on who's who's here, where are you from in case you did a great job at including everybody talking because a lot of days I wasn't in a good headspace to do it and I really focused on what I spent a lot of time talking about those guys. Their job is to protect you. Keep you because you're going to get some wacky people to who are vying for your attention and their job is to make sure that there's a buffer around you so that you could say hello, but you got to focus on what you're trying to do. And that was the amazing, amazing part was in case you do the roll call every single day. And then we'd start to hear about other people's stories and one where they came from, but then throughout the day, you know, we would that was one of the coolest things for me to experience was people did give me my distance. And respect what I was going through and yeah, just respected that, but what was a lot of fun was for, you know, 5, 6 hours on the walk around you could hear the chatter and the people talking and sharing stories in the subgroups and it just people that would have never crossed paths before. And every single day without fail, we had somebody say or we heard, hey, we wouldn't have been able to participate in this. We wouldn't have been able to experience this had Jane Finn running. And it was just one of the coolest things that happened was you said community community was huge. But two my pain and suffering and injury became a blessing to so many other people that badly wanted to be part of what we were doing. But otherwise wouldn't have had an opportunity to do so. And we were just talking at lunch about this 5 year old kid who had just turned 6. You know, this story? I don't know. Oh, I do, yeah, patella of course. So yeah, it's a really cool story. And this kid says, you know, he was a neighbor of Casey's and the dad said, okay, we'll go out because the kid who really wanted to do is part of the walk with us. And people don't realize we were walking at a pretty decent pace. And a lot of if we did take a criticism from the elites, it was that we were walking. And I had to run. I couldn't walk that fast. Yeah. I went to get a clip and we blew a lot of people. I was falling off the back of a lot of times. I'm like, he's moving pretty good. I got a job, I got to start running here to catch back up. And so this little kid just got inspired and motivated and said, I want to go do a couple miles with the iron cowboy. And the dad was like, okay, we'll get your shoes, get your shorts on, we'll go out and pick our day. And he did. He knocked out three miles with us. And then his dad was like, okay, we're done. We did the 5 K and he's like, no, the iron cowboy's still going. I want to keep going with them. And you could see him as we started to progress and do more miles. He really started to struggle. But this kid had zero quid in him. Just bawling. He was starting to cry. He's in so much pain. He was just in so much pain. He ended out knocking out 20 miles. That night, it's crazy. 20 months. Take a jog. Because you think of a 5 year old kid. Yeah, that's why. Right off the couch, did knocks out 20 miles and then was just so upset his dad ended up telling us that he was so upset that he wasn't able to finish with us because he just couldn't go any further. And so they plotted out another day and he started before us while we were still on the bike and he knocked out 5 or 6 or 7 miles and then we eventually caught him and he stayed with us the rest of the time and this 5 6 year old kid ended up doing a full marathon with us, and it was just one of the most unbelievable experiences. And we were with someone at lunch and they had just said, he hadn't been taught yet to quit. And it wasn't part of his culture. And so it begs the question like, when in our adult journey, like, was that a taught thing? Is that when did it become acceptable? When did that be part of our culture? Because that kid was just like, no, I'm in a lot of pain, but I want to do this and I'm going to endure until I tell you the last three miles just crying. I just kept going. Crying with a smiling face and just and just pushing pushing through and really to allow him. You know, a lot of parents are swinging in and rescuing this kid and Shawn let him. Sean led him fight through those tears, Sean let him finish. That's as beautiful of a story as it is that chase got it in. Yeah, and his sense of personal possibility now is very different than it was before that. But that's just, I mean, he's the youngest, but there were so many people who showed up who had never done.

"Slash. Rich roll. Do it. Do it today. It's like a subliminal message to it. I'm telling you to do it. Can you hear me? I'm in your head. Okay, the iron cowboy, sunny Joe Lawrence. Here's the thing. Just for context. In case you don't quite grasp the enormity of what this guy just did, let me spell it out. Beginning in March of this year, James climbed out of bed, swam 2.4 miles, jumped on his bike and rode a 112 miles, and then completed a marathon 26.2 miles on foot, and then repeated this routine every day without missing even a single day for a 101 days in a row. That's 14,000 200 self powered miles. I have a hard time comprehending it, even as somebody who has a bit of experience with this type of thing, even though I twice traveled to his neck of the Woods, Linda, Utah for day 91 and day 100 to just experience a little bit of it for myself firsthand. In addition to just breaking down the enormity of this feat, which was a team and family endeavor in every respect, this is a powerful conversation that just might forever change your perspective on human potential. It's also a masterclass on mental toughness, where it comes from how to develop it. It's about the power we all possess to endure the unimaginable. It's also about the critical role that teamwork community building and service play in accomplishing audacious goals. And how presence and mindfulness really hold the key to achieving the impossible. So settle in, prepare to have your mind blown and enjoy. Good to see you guys. Thanks for doing this. Yeah, buddy..

First, Eliminate What You Dont Want

"Be quite tricky to work out exactly what it is that you really want. But it's usually much easier to identify what you don't want so instead of working through the endless possibilities hoping to find the one that you want try instead the focus on a couple of specific opportunities or possibilities and then eliminate the ones that you don't want for example. Let's say you decide. You want to exercise but you're not sure what exercise you want to do. Well let's talk about what you don't want to do okay. So i don't wanna be outside because of the pollution in the great. So now you've reduced yourself to indoor you no longer will be considering looking for running in the park for example at or triathlons or something like that as an exercise option you want something indoor still lots of options of course but at least now. You've eliminated what you don't want looking at your career. Okay not sure where. I wanna go and this is a common when people when i talk to people but what do you not want to do. Okay well i don't want to be inside all the time very good now. You know you don't want one of those office type jobs. I don't want to travel again. It's easy now to start. Eliminating a whole bunch of roles doesn't make total easy because there's still a lot of options out there but at least by focusing on what you don't want it helps you clarify the soda things that possibly you do want or

Trojan insert sir. Sometimes dog trust on the return. So chris town her when when you start to feel the bigger dream when you start reading the things to graham messages from all the parents with kids with special needs tell tell what you read and how it made you feel saw up to imagine to the show and on the wrong. He started reading all these messages from parents like us. That said he's a hero to their children. And they want him their children to be like him and that he's giving them hope and so the more he read the more inspired he became because he started to recognize. There was something else going on through his effort that was impacting and then he was see all the pictures and all the posts that they would share with him and over a period of months All of those messages really started to get to him and started to transform his vision of what was going on. Did you ever think that you would be that kind of person. Chris that you would be that important for other kids or do they now. You believe you're confident. I like that nicholas. Was chris always athletic growing up. Or you know. Or and i guess this determined because this is what is really about this race. It's not just being athletic. It's being Having such strong will yeah well. It's interesting because he's always been involved in sports with you. Love sports but but never we never saw any real athletic ability in fact when he first started the triathlon a little over two years ago the first race for special olympics there were four athletes in chris finish last so he was the least likely to achieve this. He didn't have any athletic ability. He didn't have any determination. What happened in the last two years. And this is the good news everybody is he was able to develop both Through perseverance and hard work and consistent improvement over time he was able to develop mental toughness. He was able to develop physical toughness and he was able to develop muscles and and physical abilities that we never thought were possible. And then even more valuable at this point. What we're seeing through all these interviews As he's talking to people his communist ability is starting to develop in a way we never thought possible and so now he's just having conversations and interviews with people something he's never been able to do before the last couple of three months. We've seen amazing progress. And our objective of the next couple of years is to really test the limits on the cognitive aside to see how the physical and the cognitive come together because honestly our kids with down syndrome. You know they're all the perceptions are they can't do anything physically. And they can't do anything intellectually and i think chris is going to change a lot of those perceptions but they're all being changed through hard work to to ackward to perseverance and that came a little bit at a time. One percent of the time. I know people look at the end story but really what they should look at is the progression of it and we'd love to share more of that to show them that look. He made very little progress in the first year but he built the foundation and the more he stuck with it the more progress he made but it didn't happen overnight. It came very slowly. Chris as the first person with down syndrome to complete the iron man. What does that mean to you. I mean do you do you think about that. And what that means to you to log on those on a part of the summer part of the family saw saga our culture cards. On our part we went to a party already for him. The most important thing for him being included the parties the ladies right the fund really. It's about inclusion for him. It's about feeling like he's welcomed. And that's that's really what he's communicating. What nick what does it mean for you That that your son was able to do this. I mean beyond the things that you've said about his progress in his physical ability but emotionally. What does it mean for you emotionally. It means you know my wife. And i can be a little more peace. It means parents like us could be a little more peace realizing what's possible and it really is one of those things that most of most parents say for granted you know because their kids are going to be independent and take care of themselves but not for families like us who have children with special needs. It's a whole different world and so what it means. Is that a different world of possibility has opened up for us and chris. What about what about these goals you know. Get a car. Get a house are how far away. How close are you to those things. Charge future color. When you're buying a car. Saturday saturday balls. Our dog fog so and and he's been offered public speaking engagements and contracts with big companies. So he might be close to making enough money to buy a house. And then where are you what that smoking outlined your clothes. He thinks okay meet them. Oh well go back to the car from an what are you buying. Roll call a life are chevy a savvy. That's practical good and do you know. Do you already know how to drive or you have to learn to drive next up. We're going to learn how to drive what.

You know being my age. And all that back problems. And i started falling behind. But i've continued to kind of come back and has helped me get an amazing shape much better than i've been in a long time so I try to keep up with them.

They're all those people can inspire more people to do the sport that make you engaged and ultimately to meet in a more healthy people. We've even go to another athlete. Got into triathlon because she was shipwrecked whilst back packing and she swam seven hours to safety and survived and that proved to her that she had an incredible ability for durance sports. Like these are amazing stories. You're gonna say she goes. She goes to shore and then gonna buy that. Needs the the caddick thing. He does resonate. Because i think this the personal Idea but is.

It'll be unfair for me to cool out who they are. But the amount of ceo's that try athletes that compete at a high level notice professional level but at a high level the manage to balance trifon around an incredibly demanding career and family life and all the rest is is quite amazing All those people addicted to their addicted to performance. They're addicted to excellence right. It's it's really because it's been not spoiled to me. It's almost become part of the lexicon. That triathlon represents over achievement. You know which is why we think is reno twist this back to a sales plug any brands wanting to associate themselves with excellence and being greater than anything else.

And i tune in you know around big events every now and then and if it's a story i've heard of iron man just give us a feel of the size of the market and how many people are doing it and the rest of it well and i think as you say you know a little bit about sport but what.

If you if you take the the the market of triathlon there just just north of ten million people that associate themselves with being a triathlete so swim cycle. Run up through lingle's altogether.

Using Minimal Effective Dose to Maintain Your Strength, Endurance, and Muscle Size

"Got one other for you before we open it up to this week's q. In this was in the national journal strength conditioning research and kind of related to what. I was just talking about but rather than maintenance of weight loss. This one looked into maintenance of muscle maintenance of muscle and so the title of this particular study was the minimal dose of exercise so for all time hackers. Hopefully your your your ears perked when you heard that the minimal those of exercise needed to preserve endurance and strength over time. So what these folks looked into was all the different studies. This is a narrative review. They looked at all the different studies out there. That show you know once you once you've kind of gotten the body you want or the muscle you want gotten to the state of fat loss or fat loss maintenance that you want. How do you continue that over time. And there are some really really good practical applications in this particular study. This wouldn't necessarily be to improve performance but this would be to maintain performance. And it's less than what you would think like if you're as fit as you want to be but you wanna maintain that. Let me give you a few examples. So let's say short term endurance. So so you wanna maintain your fitness for for short-term darts usually be like playing sports tennis soccer basketball etc. It would appear that you can do about thirteen minutes per session at around two sessions per week at around sixty to eighty percent intensity and actually maintain your short term endurance very effectively for a long duration of time for long term endurance. Right like being able to go for long periods of time such as you might have accomplished after running a marathon or triathlon. Or something like that. Basically for that you can get away with about twenty five to thirty minutes per session okay. Twenty five to thirty minutes per session as long as you're maintaining his high in exercise intensity as possible during that steady state. Twenty five to thirty minute session. Who is shockingly low like. Let's say you've gotten yourself being like ride a bike for sixty miles and then you just wanna maintain that because you're going into work mode and you've got like eight weeks where you know. You got trained that much. You can literally maintain that with twenty five to thirty minutes for a session and in this case again. We're talking about a couple of times a week two times per week for video to match what your maximum oxygen capacity again if you can maintain your maximum sustainable pace and this was very similar for about thirteen to fifteen minutes at around one session per week. That's enough you to maintain your view to max.

I mean let's talk a little bit about the ability you can get your heart rate pretty high right which you can't do in the pool If you want you know for thinking of traffic sports but Heart rate high low impact whether what other things to cycling kept going for it. Yeah you know. It's actually funny when those with was saying that it reminded me back in twenty ten. I think i took a year off triathlon. And i just did marathons and the coach that i was working with at the time was a marathoner and he had me doing a ton of biking not too much not too long but frequency over duration and intensity over Some other stuff so a lot of the big ring work and a lot of the short like vio to lake minute thirty minute and a half anything under two minutes. Kind of all out is what. I was doing to kind of supplement the running because marathon runners usually run so much during the week and i just don't respond well to it s. Most people don't respond well to them many miles so just the off the legs but also having some intensity and having some kind of you know. The circular motion of the running and cycling sometimes complement each other really. Well yeah. yeah. I mean people who have paid attention for the run of run like a mother. Another runner no that. I basically trained for the nike women's marathon on my bike and got a fracture Gosh early on in the training. And i was not. I was not given up that marathon. Come hell or high water. I was going to it with my one in three year old. I was like san francisco. Boston going and my coach at the time. Who was it. Carmichael training systems was like okay. We're hitting the bike and holy cow. I worked so freaking hard on that bike but it you know and my longest run i think was like sixteen miles and certainly i wasn't absolutely one hundred percent prepared for that marathon but but it can get you a really nice part of the way especially like you said if you're injury-prone or don't do well with a lot of high

Athlete Chris Mosier on Being a Trans Athlete and the Queerness of His Sport

"Everyone my name. Is chris mosier my pronouns him his i am a How you just stumped me in the first question how you want your audience to know me. So i am the first out a transgender athlete to make team usa. I am an advocate activist for transition in sport. My mission is to make it easier for every person who comes after me to make sure that everybody knows that they have the opportunity to play the sports that they love and be their authentic selves. And i'm the founder of trans athlete dot com which is leading resource for trans inclusion in sports. And will you also talk about your sports specifically like what. What is your specialty. Yeah definitely this is fun. So i started off as a triathlete when i first transitioned actually before transition identifies a trans man. I was raised in socialized. This female grew up playing girls and women's sports but in two thousand ten decided to make medical transition transition categories. Kind of the short version of this is that. I wanted to make sure that i didn't lose my opportunity to play sports and so delayed transition for a while before. Actually the saying that transition. Because i didn't want to lose my ability to compete in sports so triathlon was the first part swim bike run and then i moved over to duathlon so duathlon is run bike run. It's a lesser known sport. It's associated with triathlon. It's super fun. And i don't like cold water so it's perfect remain and then last year in january twenty twenty. I went to the olympic trials for race walking so i was first trans man to make it to him. Men's olympic trials and i was in race walking. It was a sport. I picked up the year before Because i know somebody who is race walker and they recruited me and it was super fun. Okay this is this is. I'm sure the question that you get the most often after saying that. But how difficult is it to not break into a run when you are race walk. I just want to really understand the mechanics of like. I know my body can go faster than this if i do this other thing but the rules are right right right. So are you familiar with the rules. Let's talk about it. Yeah no i. Don't i mean i've seen it. I've certainly seen it. And i would imagine. That are very specific. Rules on what your body can do. That has to be true right right right right so the difference between a run and race walk is that your leg has to be straight when it hits the ground so your front leg has front knee has to be straight when it hits the ground and then you can't break that knee so bended until it's under your body. Ramen other thing is that one foot has to be on the ground to the human eye at all times so it has to look at if you slow down wow will do liftoff but so it has to look like you are on the ground at all times with one foot. So how hard is it like. It's funny that's not. Actually the question that i get the most the question that i think. I'm pretty interesting with my nose. It's around race walking like come easy on yourself. Question i get the most around race. Walking is was it harder to come out as a trans man or as a race walker. Which i love because it was way harder to come out as a race walker at this point in my life. If we're being honest. I didn't tell people about it for a while because i was like super because it's like the queerest sport that i could think of t tried to to go like You know in in the most wonderful

Obviously with you, you have more than the heart of the of a hero you have the APPs of a hero you have quads of a hero. But it's people that are really changing the game. And no no doubt about it. You are. You're changing the game you've taken a completely different path than the traditional path. the last eighteen months have been incredibly impressive for you. You're on the cover of muscle and fitness April two, thousand eighteen. You obviously one of the stars in the, game? Changers. You. Or, your social media influence over four hundred, thousand followers on your on your I. Pretty. Pretty impressive. Are you happy where you are right now? Yeah. Happy. But never satisfied like a true athlete right I think. I have big goals and ever since I started this, I didn't have those goals when I first started. This was kind of something I just ended up on this path and once I, was in it it felt right to me. So I ended up pursuing it but. Since I've seen what's Possible, to accomplish. Whenever I started I now, my goals are set really high so we'll. We'll talk about that. Yeah of course before we do Tell me how old are you just turned? Thirty thirty years old so I mean you're you're you're still a spring chicken. That's really exciting when I think about where I was when. When I was thirty, I wasn't even a firefighter yet I mean I was I was doing triathlons. It's exciting. And so. When people say you know what you do? Are you a professional bodybuilder? What's your description? That's a really good question sometimes, I don't even know what to say Because I although I am a professional bodybuilder, I've never competed in bodybuilding for income if that makes sense. So it's not something that you really pursue for money because there's not much money in the sport as more money like making businesses around what you do in maybe sponsorships and everything like that. So I wouldn't say I'm a professional body just like A. Hobby. Bodybuilder. Well. But. I mean. To me re the first Vegan to ever get on the cover of muscle and fitness. Yes to my to my knowledge and I asked them their knowledge as well at the first Vegan to ever be on the cover and how did that come to pass Funny Story I was actually competing two thousand eighteen for the Arnold Classic and even just to compete at the Arnold you have to get invited. So it was like a really big accomplishment for me to even get invited because that's like the top thirty guys in my category. So I got invited and I was training really hard up for that show because I wanted to make a big impact and just like every time I step on stage it's not just stepping onstage for me. It's like. Almost, like stepping onstage for the entire being and movement, everybody's looking to me to use me as an example. So that adds a little bit of added pressure for me but. I take that with you know what I mean. It motivates me a lot. So I was prepping for that show and Muslim fitness had reached out to me because we had done a shoot in the past and they reach out to do another shoot for them, but it was more for was more for like a workout and I was going to be the model and I had done that before and this time around. I just straight up ask the editor I was a hey, is there any way I can share my story of what I'm doing because I feel like your listeners might be really interested in it like I'm the only Vegan in my league competing the Arnold Blah Blah Blah and told him my story and they really loved it and when we went to do the photo shoot. They basically pulled me aside and hey, we're going to do a cover try and I was like what's that and he's like well, we're GONNA try to get you on the cover, but we're just gonNA take some some shots if we're doing a cover shoot and I was like okay cool. But I really try to keep my expectations really low I was like that's not going to happen never going to happen and yeah, a few months later maybe a month later two months later. A friend of mine actually sent me a text message of the cover with me on it and I'm like, what is this joke in me right now like photoshop this and send it to me. He's like I just got the email in my inbox and it's you on the cover and I was just like you do a backflip no, I just I was just sitting in disbelief and I remember looking at it I was like there's no way this just happened and because I knew Mike. What a personal accomplishment it was for me but like a victory for this movement and everything that I've been trying to do because, I knew that there hadn't been one before. So for me to be the first one kind of door for for other athletes because I'm sure there's going to be plenty in the future or you have been since but yeah, it was just like a really good moment that I'd like to just take in huge. Yeah. So You keep using the term Vegan how would you describe your lifestyle? Lifestyle. Vegan I wear the badge. You know I'm not afraid to say the word. Vegan I'm not afraid to be labeled as a Vegan because it is who I am and I really think that. There's been a misconception about around the word Vegan for a while now, and it kind of is getting better I feel. But I think it's about rebranding the word and. Changing the way feel whenever they hear the word Vegan instead of feeling like judged they should feel excited or feel inspired or feel empowered or however they feel I think we should just kind of shift that a little bit. So seeing people that are calling themselves Vegan and doing things that other people are inspired by I think it's a really good way of. Rebranding.

The Peter Principle

Revisionist History

09:02 min | 2 years ago

The Peter Principle

"The patron saint of hiring nihilism without question was the author and educator Lawrence Peter. All of us in the hiring community worship at his feet. When I was a boy I, used to leave my parents and believe my teachers can have respect for your elders and betters. The men upstairs knew what they were doing. That's Peter. He was a Canadian as a my of course and I don't know if you remember from the lottery episode but Adam Cronk right went to university in Canada. The nihilists strain runs deep in the land of the frozen prairie. Anyway Lawrence, Peter was a great first famous for saying things like the noblest of dogs is the hot dog. It feeds the hand that bite did. He was also deeply involved something called the Kinetic Sculpture Race in Humboldt County California, which is really hard to explain except to say that it's kind of like the triathlon of the art world involving sculptures on wheels that are required to perform certain feats. Peter Famously proposed a special prize called the Golden Dinosaur Award to be given to the first machine to break down immediately after the start. which if you knew Lawrence Peter, you would recognize as being very lawrence. Peter. Because his great professional obsession was with incompetence. He had a CONNOISSEUR'S I for it. And as looked around me. I. Saw a sign on the door that said emergency exit authorized personnel. Only I, wondered who'd written But then Later I saw another sign and said emergency exit. Not to be used under any circumstances learns Peter. Formulated one of the most famous laws in. Social. Science. He called it the Peter Principle. The Peter Principle states very simply than in any hierarchy and employ tends to rise to the level of incompetence that's where he stays. People get promoted based on a prediction about their ability to handle the next job on the hierarchy. And they keep rising until the prediction is wrong. You see in any organization. Where competence is essentially eligibility for promotion and incompetence is a bar to promotion. Wherever, those rules apply people were rise to the level of incompetence and tend to stay there. Lawrence Peter. Wrote a book called Peter Principle in nine, hundred, sixty nine and it is delightful exactly in a Lawrence Peter sort of way like he has a whole riff on the special case of someone who is incompetent per promoted anyway kicked upstairs a move he calls progressive sublimating. Or the case when an incompetent person is moved out of the way but given a long job title as compensation. Peter Call that a lateral arabesque. No chances are you've heard of the Peter Principle I'm guessing as a kind of joke ha ha that's why my boss is so bad. But it's not a joke. Allow me to direct you to the work of a fellow member of the Hiring Nyas Club on Benson economist at the University of Minnesota. While he was doing his doctorate mit he got bitten by the Peter Principle bug. I started to go to sales management conferences. And they found that there is this adage that the best salesperson doesn't necessarily make the best manager. but then people would laugh and say, but we do it anyway. And I wanted to find out why the great advantage of using salespeople debilitate. The Peter Principle Benson realizes is that you can measure performance really easily is not like assessing the performance of engineers or politicians. No, it's super straightforward. You just look at how many sales salesperson is made and it's also easy to measure good sales manager is you just add up the sales of the salespeople, the manager managing. So Allen Benson finds a tech company that sells one of those software platforms for sales organizations, kind of like salesforce dot com and gets access to all of their customers data four, hundred firms hundred thousand salespeople. The first thing he finds is a confirmation of the famous eighty twenty rule that twenty percent of the sales people are responsible for eighty percent of the sales across the board. It's not that we don't know who's a good salesperson we definitely know. People are really good. Second thing he finds those superstars get rewarded. What we found in the data look that type salespeople are far far more likely to be promoted into sales management than people who are outside of that top twenty percent who aren't the best person on on the team. Of course, the makes sense you give the stars promotion. That's what everyone does. Okay. Now it gets interesting one happens when those stars take over as manager. Fair sales, people, themselves people who they managed. Their performances becomes worse under them than it was under their prior managers. The Stars get promoted in their terrible managers. How terrible really terrible. Benson looked at an alternate promotion scenario where companies decide to promote not stars but the sales people who are good at collaborating. Nice friendly people who work well with others and teams managed by the friendly people do thirty percent better than the teams managed by the superstars. Thirty percent is huge. You. Might say what does this have to do with nihilism? This is just an argument promoting friendly people over superstars does not I rolling or even shrugging? Well I haven't told you about Bentsen's last finding. Because Benson found a fatal flaw in the ultimate promoting scenario. The one that seems to work thirty percent better, which is this. If you promote the friendly sales people over the top salespeople then the top sales people get upset. So upset that their performance suffers and they aren't so top anymore. The, whole thing is so magnificently perverse, isn't it? All your sales come from the same small group of people who expect to be promoted as a reward for their excellence. But if you promote them out of sales, which you get returned is a lousy manager and if you don't promote them. And you pass them over in favor of some warm and fuzzy into personal wuss. The top performers will pout and stop trying. So what are you supposed to do? You could pay the superstars more and more and give them fancier titles in the maneuver Lawrence Peter called the Lateral Arabesque But you still insulted them by passing them over for the friendly was. Another idea that some Peter principle theorists have floated his lotteries they end up where Adam cronkite ended up put everyone's name and a hat and promote the winter I mean, why not? But then why have a boss at all? No concept of boss is it a boss knows more than the people that bossing? There's even a school of thought in the Upper Reaches Peter Principle world at the best solution is just to man up forget everything else and deliberately promote the incompetent because this way you won't lose one of your superstars by them into a lousy manager. You'll just transfer an incompetent person from their present position of incompetence to another position of incompetence up stairs somewhere where they will occupy a position which according to Peter Principle was bound to be occupied by an incompetent person sooner or later anyway. Did you follow that? Peter principle theorizing gets very Meta ferry quickly. which. Is Why most people would rather console themselves with a soothing banalities of Merit and prediction and hierarchy? Only. A select few. Are Willing to face the truth. And who are those brave and lonely heretics? The nihilists. People like me. Who Look at the world with a cold and unflinching eye and say Under the circumstances, why bother to learn the first thing about any new perspective job candidate? and.

We've talked now out for a whole season about the way our guest seed and so forth but I imagine people would love to hear what you eat. In the course of a day and we talk about the seven pillars in the seventh pillar is movement and movement and exercise has been a cornerstone of your entire life and so maybe we can start with you talking about your relationship with with exercise and how you move yeah so I've always felt very comfortable in the athletic arena as long as I can remember you know whether it was doing doing the presidential fitness award back in you know fourth fifth sixth seventh eighth grade playing on the on Softball Teams Little League Baseball Basketball in the neighborhood. I grew up in this very idyllic neighborhood. You know in in one of the suburbs of Cleveland Ohio and we would have all these pickup baseball games tennis so I I really as a as a young kid growing up I got introduced used to every sport imaginable right I mean swimming biking running volleyball baseball all the album ball sports and and I and I loved it all but for whatever reason I kind of gravitated towards towards swing it was it was one of those sports that I excel that in highschool really it's funny. I was kind of a late bloomer of sorts. I I was kind of short until about maybe the ninth tenth the grade and that's when I shot up and went from probably five eight five nine up to over six feet and I'm now almost six feet two and then I ended up doing a postgraduate year at a boarding school and it was known as being one of the best swimming high schools in the country. It's called Mercersburg Academy and I went there and kind of repeated my junior year and that's when I needed that extra year and that's when I kinda got a decent and I mean I got good enough to where I had places like the University of Texas at Austin Arizona Tennessee Indiana these universities our cities were soliciting me and offered me recruiting trips and I visited the schools but I of course I landed at the University of Texas at Austin for a number of reasons reasons and Gosh have no regrets because if I wouldn't have gone to Texas I wouldn't of you know. I don't think I would have become a professional triathlete athlete. I wouldn't have met my wife. I wouldn't have become a firefighter and I wouldn't be here today. Talking to you becoming a division one athlete is is a major accomplishment and you did extremely well professional triathlete but then when you stop and then you enter the world and became a firefighter that's win for most people to so they might have played high school sports sports. They might have just been active through school but then they enter the workforce and they they start moving. They have a commute. They sit at their desk all day. life is busy. GotTa get dinner on the table title but you kept going so talk about why you do that and you know what you do in the course of everyday for your workout well. I'M GONNA back back up a little a bit because yes I went to University of Texas at Austin and it was the number one or number two school in the country and I had set certain aspirated for myself. You know every swimmer that that I know of especially Division One they wanna go the Olympics and they want to win a medal at the Olympics right and my father won a gold medal in enrolling in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and so I kind of had high aspirations and so I went to ut and I went there because I was a backstroker and the American record holder was there at the time guy named Clay Brit and the world record holder in in meters guy name Rick Kerry and I'm like you know if you want to be the best you got to go and you know see how the best to it and I just for whatever ever reason I never got as good as I wanted to so I always had this kind of disappointed in where I ended with my swimming career. I think that's one of the reasons why you know frankly. I threw myself into triathlons right because I had this nagging disappointment that just would not go away and I figured it okay if I work harder than anybody else. If I do all the little things right then maybe I can erase some of that disappointment that I had because I never made it to the Olympics. I went to the Olympic trials and was a three time all American but you know you'd be amazed how many swimmers that if they don't get an Olympic medal they feel like they're a failure and I have learned so much you know just in the evolution of our mindsets and what we want and failure and all that but so getting back to your question. Why am I still like you know doing this day. After Day. I think some of it believe it or not goes back to not a lot but a little goes back to my disappointment back in my college days. The other thing is I've fallen in. I Love I fall in love with movement the meditation that kind of I think happens with me and my mind when I'm swimming biking running I just there's a certain meditation that happens especially when you're clicking on also under there's a certain grace and ease in these sports especially especially when you're there when you're fitness is there and it's almost like all right. Let's see what we can do today and I've been swimming with this master Swim Program. I think we may have touched upon this a touch with. Jd Roth an episode five Jay talked about how you know one of the things that keeps them accountable is he has these group of guys that he has is over to his house. They got to come to his out but he has over to his house. You know whatever it's six o'clock and there's like a group of ten or twelve and they've been doing it now for over the decade and they're like best buds got something very similar to that back in Austin. It's with the this rolling would master Swim Program. There's probably ten guys and a few women and we've been together for some of US almost twenty years and you know we're we're there for each other. These guys become some you know the closest friends in my life not only is it a bonding experience with these with these people that we've connect. I've connected acted with for so many years but it also it is such a wonderful way to start your day right. I mean when you when the first thing that you can do in the morning as bang out a a killer workout in it's usually only an hour but I might as a week so it's I usually go five days a week. They have six days a week. I usually go five days a week and that after we swim and one of the things I want you to know is I'm fifty six and I go hard. I mean you know I I. I know some people they get over a certain age and like you know I'm just going to like take it easy and not going to get the heart rate up over a certain level. You know don't want any beads sweat coming down the old forehead. You know I'm kind of like all right. Let's bring it on. Let's let's let's hurt and I do that. I do that a lot and then you get out of the pool. WHO'LL so I've been with you on one of these workers then you got to do pull ups and a pretty amazing core routine so we do some medicine by work we do. We do pull ups yeah we do we do different kinds of variations of plank work outs we're always trying to mix it up and try new stuff but yes so after a swim and then doing fifteen to twenty minutes of cour- work pull ups sit ups man you are like ready to just like dig into the day and and do some damage so at what point did you decide decide okay being a division. One athlete wasn't enough being a world class professional triathlete enough now in a I want to break the world record for your age group. When was that decided so I i. I didn't really have these ambitions of getting the world record I do. Maybe need to say that two and a half almost three years ago. I did try to get the world record four fifty to fifty four year olds but I was fifty four and like like six months old not a good time to try and get a world record because I'm at the very end of the age group and I missed it by a little over like three and a half seconds. It's and I remember hurting so bad in this in this effort and I'm like okay. You know what I'm just. I'm done race and it's just it's it's. It's a a whole `nother level of pain beyond the workouts that I just don't. I don't know if I want to go there and when I was on the ritual podcast rich was like come on you. GotTa do it. You gotta do it for everybody. That's out there and I'm like yeah but you know I had blood coming out of my eyeballs and I had not not literally but that's what I felt like right and I felt like I was breathing out of every orifice in my body so there was some serious pain in my legs felt like lead weights and there was was lactic acid coursing through every molecule of my
