Mile High Endurance Podcast

Mile High Endurance Podcast 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. ‚ÄčThe objective of the Mile High Endurance 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.

Our interview this week is with coach Billy Edwards of the USA Naval Academy triathlon team and we are talking about USAT Collegiate Nationals.  We are going to talk about the Navy team win (Go Navy), about the vibe of the race and how they score teams at this event.

Thanks to last week's guests, coach Mike Ricci on how to transform yourself from an average age-grouper to a Kona qualifier.  If you want to get to Kona and you haven't heard the interview - get on it! 

Sure Kona is the world championship of Ironman.  When you think of triathlon, most people think of Kona first.  Besides being the IM WC, it is an event that has an amazing vibe.  This week we are talking about another race that has a unique vibe and energy that I've not experienced anywhere else.  I'm talking about USATCN.  If you've been to USAT Nationals, this is not that vibe.  It's something completely different.  It's like a USATAG Nationals, Final 4 and Kona hybrid.

We are talking to the coach who built a team over years to get to this point.  We'll talk about how he did it.

Billy "The Kid" Edwards coaches the United States Naval Academy Triathlon Team.  He has been coaching the Navy Club sport since 2008.  Billy also coaches and consults competitive and beginner triathletes all over the country. His professional coaching background includes USA Triathlon and USA cycling certifications.  As a Marine infantry officer, Billy spent much of his time getting his Marines mentally and physically prepared for their tasks in battle similar to prepping athletes for races and meets.  Billy believes in consistency in every aspect of life in order to become a better athlete. Sports should become not just a hobby but a positively integrated aspect of your life. He also considers triathlon much more than swim, bike, and run.  It is the obstacles in your life, in your training, and then on race day that you have to learn to mentally, emotionally, and physically hurdle on the way to your goals.  http://billythekidtriathlete.com/coaching/
