Despite it being March in Colorado, we've had some pretty nice weather recently and it stirred thoughts of "crap, I haven't registered for my races yet". We'll talk about news coming out of the triathlon community with Bill Plock from 303 Triathlon.
This month we have coach David Warden. He is a personality that many of our listeners are already familiar with. David has been in the news most recently for his coaching and planning of James Lawrence's (aka Iron Cowboy) 50 Ironman distance efforts in all 50 States in 50 concurrent days. David has a successful international coaching business and has a very successful podcast called Tri-Talk (www.tri-talk.com). Tri-Talk happens to be the podcast that most influenced my development as a novice triathlete more than a decade ago with its science-based approach to helping triathletes swim, bike and run faster. I am very grateful for his contributions to the sport, as well as his time and support with this podcast.
What is one local resource you can't live (as a triathlete) without? The local tri shop, right? This month I talk to James Sharpe, owners of TriBella and Colorado Triathlon Company. We'll talk with them about their unique offerings as a tri shop, their philosophy on serving the needs of the community and their feature race.
Finally, February in Colorado is clearly the triathlon "off season". We boast 300 plus days of sunshine per in Colorado, and that is generally true. That said, it is the off season and that creates lots of opportunities to Try Something New. This month interview to 3x Olympic cross-country ski competitor, Jim Galanes. And, I talk to Todd Stockford, a local triathlete who unpacks the sport of cross-country skiing and how we can use it to complement our off-season training.
