Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance is recorded in the Rocky Mountain front range area in Denver, Colorado. 55 miles to the north is the triathlon 'Mecca' of Boulder, home of some of the most prominent pros in triathlon and related sports. 56 miles to the south is the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs is the flagship training center for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Olympic Training Center programs. The 110 mile stretch between Boulder and Colorado Springs is one of the fittest and athletic populated areas in the world. I share these statistics, not so much to brag but to give you the listener context for what the culture and vibe is here in the Mile High area. ​The objective of the Mile High Tri podcast is to connect you to the triathlon community and empower you to achieve your triathlon and fitness goals. Each month we will take subjects that you are interested in and connect your interests with news, expert interviews, and information about services and products in a way that inform your decisions to achieve your full potential in the sport.

Welcome

Welcome to Episode #104 of the Mile High Endurance podcast.  Mile High Endurance is your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance and triathlon goals.  We're your hosts Rich Soares, Khem Suthiwan  and Bill Plock and we are glad you are joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.

We have a pioneer trans-athlete and professional cyclist Jillian Bearden to talk candidly about her transition and trail blazing work with the International Olympic Committee and USA Cycling.  This is an inspirational and insightful interview and a story of personal courage that I personally found very informative.

Last week's guest

Thanks to last week's guest CEO of USA Triathlon, Rock Harris, who joined us to share his vision for triathlon and USAT.  He has been on the job for a couple of months now and we want to get his assessment of the state of sport, where he sees opportunities and the path forward to implement some exciting changes.

Discussion Teasers

Before we get into the interview, let's say hi to Khem and Bill and tell you what we have for the post interview discussion.  Hey guys how are you doing this week?

  • Team Colorado Event
  • IMKona Feature
  • Importance of strength work and rolling, plus a few hip and gluteous strengtheners

Interview Setup

It's not uncommon for us to talk to a professional cyclist on this show.  This is an interview that goes well beyond our traditional discussion of athletic background, racing highlights and tips to listeners.  Jillian opens up and allows us to discuss what is exceptionally personal experience and emotions that come with her transition experience and work with the IOC and USAC to create a path for trans athletes to compete at a professional level in cycling. She has become a hero to others who are on the same journey, showing others how cycling and endurance sport can change your life in ways you wouldn’t expect.

Health IQ Ad

And we are back.  Thanks again to Health IQ for sponsoring today's interview.  The Health IQ advantage is their unique mortality model that enables lower rates for health conscious people.  Just like having a good driving record saves you money on auto insurance, Health IQ uses science & data to secure lower rates on life insurance for health conscious people including runners, cyclists, strength trainers, vegans, and more.

With other life insurance companies, you might be penalized for family history, BMI, and other attributes but don’t get rewarded for your health conscious lifestyle.  You put in the time to train consistently, have the discipline to get out there in the cold, in the dark, you eat well, and you get the rewards of greater energy, and you feel good about yourself.  Let's face it, you spend money on race registrations, gym memberships and gear.  See if you can reward yourself further and recoup some of those investments. See how much you can save.

Host Discussion Topics

Jillian Bearden debrief topics:

  • First, I have a ton of respect for Jillian and the courage it took for her to not give up, turn things around 180 degrees, be a self-advocate and now an advocate for others.
  • I did not realize until we got into the interview that it was she that worked with the IOC and USAC to define the trans athlete path to professional racing.
  • I went into the interview being cautious to not push her to get more personal than she was comfortable - I totally underestimated her courage and willingness to share.
  • Rolling tips
  • Glute strengtheners
    • Glute bridge
    • Side plank abductors
    • Single leg step down
    • Single leg dead lift
