Of course, thanks to last week's guest Tim O'Donnell for joining us to talk about his record breaking performance at Kona this year. TO - good luck in Cozumel next week!

Shout Out to UCAN:
I'd like to throw out a complimentary plug for Generation UCAN. As I mentioned with Matt, I discovered UCAN in the preparation for my last Ironman. I'm using UCAN now and really loving it. I mix a bottle of UCAN the night before my morning workouts and then drink the bottle on the way to the pool or when warming up on the trainer. After that, I have the hydration formula for the remainder of the workout that has no fuel but has sodium. Both products taste great and I'm really like the blender bottle. If you want to try it for yourself, check out the starter pack link in the show notes. https://www.generationucan.com/product/ucan-tri-starter-pack/
What's New in the 303:
On December 1-2, 2019, 20-25 riders will attempt to break the World Record for the longest static cycling class in history. Combined, we will ride mileage equivalent to biking from NYC to LA… and back. Presented by TheCyclist-Lawyer.com and Breaking History TV, hosted by CycleBar, and benefitting PeopleForBikes… this 28-hour nonstop cycling record attempt will test riders’ limits, mental and physical strength, and stretch even the hardest endurance athlete — but it’s all for an AMAZING organization… Our goal: $100,000 raised for PeopleForBikes. Let’s make cycling safer for everyone!!
Nick Butter 30, has become the first person to complete a marathon in all 196 countries recognized by the United Nations, finishing his challenge in Greece on Sunday. Butter has so far raised over £65,000 ($83,000) for charity Prostate Cancer UK as a result of his record-breaking odyssey, which began on January 6, 2018. Butter, a former banker who hails from Dorset in the south of England, ran his first marathon at the age of 11. Later, he competed at a high level while keeping up an office job, but eventually decided to become a full-time runner. The idea for his 196-country challenge came when Butter met a man at a race in the Sahara desert who had been diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. Kevin Webber imparted a powerful message that inspired Butter to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and, when he realized that nobody had ever run a marathon in every country in the world, he set off to become the first person to do so. "You've got to value your time, you cannot just assume that you're going to get to retirement and live this life, you've got to go and do what you want now," Butter told CNN.
