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. ​The 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.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  In today's show we have Chris Anthony perhaps most known for being a professional skier in the Warren Miller movies is joining us to talk about a host of topics, but the one that might surprise you the most is that he was just as likely to have made a professional career as a cyclist.  We are also going to talk about how his cycling background led him to create the biggest Prim funding than pretty much any pro female race at the Colorado Classic.  We'll also cover how he is using the history and story of the 10th Mountain Division to help teach kids history in a fun and exciting way.  

Thanks to last week's guest Colin Laughery.  That was a blast of an interview and the Garage Talk was great too.  In the Garage Talk Colin was wearing a t-shirt with the phrase "The Swim Is Cancelled" on it.  I wanted to get one for myself (and as presents for some family members who happen to be triathletes).  I googled it and was led to a company called The Swim Is Cancelled.  Huge shout out to Nate Ballard at The Swim Is Cancelled for a great list of fun products (tees, hoodies, stickers, patches) with captions like the aforementioned, "I Pee On Bikes", "Zone 2 is a Lie", and more.

Interview with Chris Anthony:

  • Cool hearing the life story and all of the experiences our guests have.  Chris at a Summer camp in Copper watching the Canadians and 7-11 team training in 1976 and how he wanted the thighs.  Then of chasing Andy Mill up Freemont Pass and Chris' Dad chased him down.
  • Got on a Pro Am team.  Lived at the Olympic Training Center.  Thought he was going to be a bike racer. 17 years old kicking ass at everything.  Climbing real well and staying with top guys.
  • What a past, deep sea fishing in Hawaii, flow fishing in Montana with Greg LeMond
  • Hopefully Chris can get us in with @GregLeMond
  • Bridging education though sport in the story of the 10th Mountain Division and the Climb to Glory movie.  You'll have the trailer as this week's video of the week
  • The whole story about how he met Greg LeMond, how he crashed speed skating in Minneapolis breaking Greg's arm just before the world championships
  • Slaying the badger - American Greg Lemond helped teammate Bernard Hinault, The Badger, win the Tour de France as teammates. In 1986, it was supposed to be LeMond's turn, but would it be? It was a turning point in cycling.
    • Bernard Hinault (pronounced [bɛʁ.naʁ i.no]; born 14 November 1954) is a French former professional cyclist. With 147 professional victories,[1] including five in the Tour de France, he is often named among the greatest cyclists of all time.
