Welcome to Episode #183 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 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.
This week we have a really interesting discussion for you. Think about the people that have left a legacy in triathlon. Who is the first person who comes to mind? This week we are sharing a panel discussion with 5 athletes who are creating legacies as they continue to race. We have Kyle and Brent Pease (the Pease brothers), Chris McDonald, Craig Alexander (Crowie), and Andrea Ramos. The event was hosted by Newton Running and owner Jerry Lee. It was facilitated by Andrew Maxwell and the central discussion was about what legacy they want to leave in the sport. It's personal for each and we hope you will feel a connection to one or more of these stories.
Thanks to last week's guest TO and the breakdown of Ironman Boulder. We are looking forward to seeing him in Kona.
