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.

Welcome

Welcome to Episode #174 of the Mile High Endurance podcast.  You are listening to your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance and triathlon goals.  We are your hosts coach Rich Soares and 303 Chief Bill Plock.   Thanks for joining us for another week of endurance interviews and discussion.  

We have a very special guest today.  In 1982, the World watched on ABC's Wide World of Sports as Julie Moss, in first place, collapsed within yards of the finish line in Kailua Kona at the Ironman World Championship. She would continue to crawl her way toward the finish line dragging her legs behind her.  Today we remember this moment, the day of the race and the years that followed with the legendary Julie Moss as we talk about her book, Crawl of Fame.

We hope you enjoyed last week's interview with Alex Hutchinson about the book "Endure: Mind, Body and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Potential".

Interview Introduction:

Julie Moss is one guest who does not need an introduction in the standard way we provide background and bio information.

Julie was born on October 8, 1958 in Carlsbad California. Her given name was Julie Donna Moss, though her mom wanted to name her Julie Dawn.  As a young girl she idolized strong female characters like Scout from To Kill A Mockingbird and read as many of the Nancy Drew novels as her library carried. She was an avid surfer and Life guard and often skipped class to ride waves.  She of course became an Ironman in 1982 and ended up falling in love and marrying Mark Allen.  They were the prince charming and princess of triathlon, but ultimately grew apart. 

 

Her story in the book is told from her perspective and those of some of her closest friends and relatives.  It is honest, inspiring, educational and entertaining.Let's spend some time with our guest interview.
