Today's show is "Part 3" of the 3 Part Theme on Racing. Part 1 (Episode #19) 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. Part 2 (Episode #20) was published on April 8th and featured 2015 ITU Long Course champ Mary Beth Ellis, and President of the Board of USAT, Barry Siff. Part 3 (today's episode) features Peggy Shockley of the Lake to Lake Triathlon in Loveland, Hessam Salim with Lifetime Tri and the race director of the Boulder Peak.
Since this is the last episode in the May focus on "choosing races", I'd like to once again thank the guests for their time and extend an open invitation for any other race directors who would like to come on the show and educate the triathlon community about their races. I had intended to get invitations out to all race directors in the hopes of talking to a couple. My thought process is that I may get a 1 in 4 response. I actually received a 1 for 1 response, so I simply truncated the asking process and did not get to everyone I had intended.
In fact, if you are a professional in this industry and see yourself fitting into any of the show categories ("Ask A Coach", "Resources" or "Try Something New"), and you feel you have something that would contribute to the listeners development as an athlete and empower them to meet their athletic and triathlon goals, please contact me. I would love to talk to you about an opportunity to be on the show.
Coaches of triathlon or of any of the individual sports are welcome. Resources is simply any triathlon-related product or service that helps the aforementioned goal of helping athletes reach their full potential are game. I select resources that are relevant to the subject or arch of the episode or month. The objective of the interview is to add an educational dimension from the perspective of the product or service industry. There is an obvious opportunity to advertise, which I encourage, but it is limited to that episode or theme.
Those who wish to have a consistent presence on the show and website, please contact me for sponsorship opportunity. I am looking to invest in the show to develop the show (eg, equipment to interview "on location", increase frequency, show storage, etc). You can contact me via the website at www.milehightripodcast.com. Thanks and look forward to those opportunities.
