Our guest this week is Marcus Smith from InnerFight. In the name InnerFight sounds familiar, it should. We had his coaching partner Tom Walker on the show back in August to talk about their Run Strong program. Check out episode #189 to hear the interview with Tom.

Marcus Smith is going to sharing his inspirational story from the documentary "Fighting For Every Breath". As you will hear, Marcus was preparing for an epic ultra bike challenge when he was struck by a truck on February 10, 2018. He was thrown into a wall at 54 kph (33.5 mph), Injured, unable to move, bleeding from the mouth, a collapsed lung, and literally fighting for every breath. From the peak of endurance fitness to fighting for his life in an instant. The story is about how he held on and fought his way back from immobilizing and near-fatal injuries. He found the mental strength to find reasons to celebrate the smallest of victories.

Thanks to last week's guest coach and author Marc Bloom about the book Amazing Racers, the story of America's greatest running team and their revolutionary coach, Bill Aris.

RED BULL - The Worlds 10 Toughest Ultra Endurance Cycling Events:

Ultra-distance cycling is a growing trend among cyclists as more and more amateurs look to emulate the pros by going further and harder than ever before. Throw in the growing gravel and adventure bike market and people are now crossing continents against the clock with just their bike and some essentials in tow.

Not all events are created equal though, so we’ve rounded up the toughest in the world. Whether it’s a 300km-plus one-day epic around Wales or a battle against terrible terrain in Kyrgyzstan, you should only sign up to these races if you dare.

PROJECT ICEMAN

Project Iceman is the documentary of the first ever, World Record breaking Ironman triathlon in Antarctica in February 2020, the Iceman, to show that limitations are perceptions. The purpose is to inspire other people to dare pursue their biggest dreams. Anders Hofman's goal to help prevent mental illness. Despite progress throughout the world, there are still some alarming trends. Mental health problems are one of the main causes of the overall disease burden worldwide, while 1 of 5 adults in the U.S. (43.8m) experience mental illness every year. Instead of only focusing on the treatment of these diseases, we want to shift focus towards preventing them through developing stronger mental resilience, which we are all capable of. We just need the tools, the support and the hope. This is what we aspire to give with the Iceman Community.

Shout Out to UCAN:

I'd like to throw out a complimentary plug for Generation UCAN. As I mentioned with Matt, I discovered UCAN in the preparation for my last Ironman. I'm using UCAN now and really loving it. I mix a bottle of UCAN the night before my morning workouts and then drink the bottle on the way to the pool or when warming up on the trainer. After that, I have the hydration formula for the remainder of the workout that has no fuel but has sodium. Both products taste great and I'm really like the blender bottle.

Friends DO Let Friends Race Draft-Legal Tri–What a Blast!!

A couple of months ago some friends encouraged me to try our first draft-legal triathlon. I’ve been doing non-draft triathlons for nearly 15 years, and thought it was time to try something new. “First” experiences at my age are rare! I tapped into a rush of adrenaline yesterday that almost made vomit at the finish line! That’s cool!! Not the vomit part, but the tapping into that much human drive. I want more of it and I’ll be back for it next year!

“Perhaps this is a sign,” Teri Ward on winning another 303 contest–with Rinny surprise

Of all times, during the week of the 2019 IRONMAN World Championships, Teri lost her beloved husband Chuck, after a battle with cancer. 2019 has been a tough year for Teri. She also attempted IRONMAN Boulder in June and was not able to finish. With hopes of qualifying for Kona, her summer turned upside down with the disappointing race, but much more importantly, with a turn for the worse as Chuck’s battle with melanoma cancer worsened.

 

When told of winning Teri said, “A couple of friends pointed out that I had won a Kona bag. What a surprise! You see, I had DNF’d at IRONMAN Boulder this year, missing a Kona slot, then my husband’s fight against cancer took a turn for the worst in August and my motivation to train was very limited and my darling husband passed the week of Kona and I haven’t been sure if I would ever train again. Perhaps this is a sign that I am meant to use his determination and strength as motivation to keep up my Kona quest.”

Endurance News:

Nick Butter 30, has become the first person to complete a marathon in all 196 countries recognized by the United Nations, finishing his challenge in Greece on Sunday. Butter has so far raised over £65,000 ($83,000) for charity Prostate Cancer UK as a result of his record-breaking odyssey, which began on January 6, 2018. Butter, a former banker who hails from Dorset in the south of England, ran his first marathon at the age of 11. Later, he competed at a high level while keeping up an office job, but eventually decided to become a full-time runner. The idea for his 196-country challenge came when Butter met a man at a race in the Sahara desert who had been diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. Kevin Webber imparted a powerful message that inspired Butter to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and, when he realized that nobody had ever run a marathon in every country in the world, he set off to become the first person to do so. "You've got to value your time, you cannot just assume that you're going to get to retirement and live this life, you've got to go and do what you want now," Butter told CNN.

Endurance News:

A federal safety board issued a surprise recommendation for mandatory bike helmet laws in all 50 states — unanimously approving a last-minute resolution that had not been recommended by the board’s own staff.

The National Transportation Safety Board voted 3-0 to recommend helmet laws even as staff members reminded panelists that such laws may reduce overall cycling, and lead to the “unintended consequence” of more road fatalities because fewer cyclists will mean less pressure on local officials to build the kind of protected infrastructure that is proven to improve cyclist safety.

Last week, events company AEG announced that the Amgen Tour of California, the last remaining UCI World Tour race that’s brought some of the world’s most talented riders to the U.S. for the past 14 years, would be put “on hiatus.

In a statement announcing the cancellation, AEG did not detail any specific reasons for it, but suggested that the ATOC would not be coming back until they figure out the biggest barrier to bike racing here in the United States: money.

“This has been a very difficult decision to make, but the business fundamentals of the Amgen Tour of California have changed since we launched the race 14 years ago,” Kristin Klein, president of the Amgen Tour of California and executive vice president of AEG Sports said in a statement. “This new reality has forced us to re-evaluate our options, and we are actively assessing every aspect of our event to determine if there is a business model that will allow us to successfully relaunch the race in 2021.”

At 17, Mary Cain was already a record-breaking phenom: the fastest girl in a generation, and the youngest American track and field athlete to make a World Championships team. In 2013, she was signed by the best track team in the world, Nike’s Oregon Project, run by its star coach Alberto Salazar.

Then everything collapsed. Her fall was just as spectacular as her rise, and she shares. Instead of becoming a symbol of girls’ unlimited potential in sports, Cain became yet another standout young athlete who got beaten down by a win-at-all-costs culture. Girls like Cain become damaged goods and fade away. We rarely hear what happened to them. We move on.

Sam Long is a Boulder-based pro triathlete. He is 23 years old. He grew us as an avid skier and mountain bike rider. In High School he found a love for endurance sports and turned pro shortly after doing his first Ironman at the age of 18. He is one of the youngest pros on the Ironman circuit.

This year he won a straight marathon at Napa Valley Marathon win in a time of 2:32:33. You backed that up with a Chatty 70.3 win. Then you had rough patch over the summer with a couple races. He is now the Ironman Chatty Champ and was the 7th male pro to qualify for Kona 2020 and likely be the youngest at 24 (23 presently).
