Today's show is "Part 2" of the three part theme theme on choosing races. Part 1 was published on April 1st and featured Dave Christen if IM Boulder, Coach Khem Suthiwan of Mile High Multisport and Lance Panigutti of Without Limits.
Usually the sequel to any show fails to deliver on the quality of the original, but not at Mile High Tri. Today we continue seeking advice and perspective on choosing races and get input from the experts. On today's show we have 2015 ITU Long Course champ Mary Beth Ellis and none other than the USAT president of the board Barry Siff.
Mary Beth Ellis, last year's ITU Long Distance champ joins us to reflect a bit about 2015 and her race plans for 2016. To know Mary Beth is to enjoy her. She's just a real cool lady who continues to achieve at such a high level.
Barry Siff, president of the board for USAT talks about his years as a race director of the Boulder Peak, his achievements as a community leader in Colorado, and his role at USAT. Great information about the status and progression of the US Olympic Triathlon Team selection between now and the Rio games.
Be sure to check back in 1 week for the 3rd in the race series (episode is #21) with Hassam Salim from Lifetime Fitness and the Lifetime Tri Series and Peggy Shockley of the Lake to Lake triathlon in Loveland Co.
Stay tuned, stay informed, and enjoy the triathlon journey. Good luck with your training and races this week!
