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.

Despite it being March in Colorado, we've had some pretty nice weather recently and it stirred thoughts of "crap, I haven't registered for my races yet".  We'll talk about news coming out of the triathlon community with Bill Plock from 303 Triathlon.   

This month we have coach David Warden. He is a personality that many of our listeners are already familiar with.  David has been in the news most recently for his coaching and planning of James Lawrence's (aka Iron Cowboy) 50 Ironman distance efforts in all 50 States in 50 concurrent days.  David has a successful international coaching business and has a very successful podcast called Tri-Talk (www.tri-talk.com).  Tri-Talk happens to be the podcast that most influenced my development as a novice triathlete more than a decade ago with its science-based approach to helping triathletes swim, bike and run faster.  I am very grateful for his contributions to the sport, as well as his time and support with this podcast.

What is one local resource you can't live (as a triathlete) without?  The local tri shop, right?  This month I talk to James Sharpe, owners of TriBella and Colorado Triathlon Company.  We'll talk with them about their unique offerings as a tri shop, their philosophy on serving the needs of the community and their feature race.

Finally, February in Colorado is clearly the triathlon "off season".   We boast 300 plus days of sunshine per in Colorado, and that is generally true.  That said, it is the off season and that creates lots of opportunities to Try Something New.  This month interview to 3x Olympic cross-country ski competitor, Jim Galanes.  And, I talk to Todd Stockford, a local triathlete who unpacks the sport of cross-country skiing and how we can use it to complement our off-season training.
