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.

Our guest this week is pro triathlete Sarah Crowley. She's all over the podium these days with a 3rd place in Kona and a win at IMAZ, we are stoked to have her on the show this week to talk about her career, season and future.

Thanks to last week's guest Marcus Smith is going to sharing his inspirational story from the documentary "Fighting For Every Breath". From the peak of endurance fitness to fighting for his life in an instant. The story is about how he held on and fought his way back from immobilizing and near-fatal injuries. He found the mental strength to find reasons to celebrate the smallest of victories.

What does liposomally encapsulated mean you ask?

Liposomal Encapsulation Technology consists of microscopic healthy fat particles called phospholipids along with vitamins. This technology has been used for many years to deliver certain drugs to specific tissues within the body without affecting the other parts of the body.

 

What does full-spectrum hemp extract mean you ask?

Hemp oil can refer to a full-spectrum oil from the Cannabis sativa plant or hemp seed oil, which is oil that comes from just the seeds of the hemp plant. ... Full-spectrum hemp oil that also contains plant matter may add other effective compounds, which may help with certain health issues, such as inflammation.

How Does Hemp Work?

Hemp is rich in compounds known as cannabinoids. Research shows cannabinoids like cannabidiol may help treat everything from eczema to epilepsy. Cannabinoids interact with The Endocannabinoid System, or ECS. The ECS is a biological system present in all mammals. It impacts almost every system in the human body including:

  • Memory
  • Appetite
  • Inflammation
  • Fertility
  • Pain
  • Mood

The primary purpose of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis, which means that aiding this regulatory system helps your body return to normal after periods of intense stress–including hard workouts. The ECS is comprised of endogenous cannabinoid receptors. Two of these receptors have been identified, CB1 and CB2.

Cannabinoids like hemp extract interact with these receptors, helping to achieve homeostasis. Maintaining a healthy endocannabinoid system is vital to our well-being. Substantial evidence shows a strong link between disease and endocannabinoid deficiency. While our bodies cannot produce cannabinoids on their own, we can support our ECS by integrating supplements like hemp recovery products into our diets.

Post interview Discussion

Bill, I'm officially a Sarah Crowley fan. Sarah is smart, fast and got a style all her own. The thing about the Minnie and Mickey dolls is a trip. I'm definitely packing a pair for Kona next year. We'll get a picture of her with them at the pro panel next year.

BEST AND WORST MARATHONS IN THE WORLD STUDY

While running the London Marathon might be on the top of most runners’ marathon wishlists, according to recent data collected by The Sole Supplier, London is only number 11 on a list of the best marathons in the world. Looking at course data, The Sole Supplier analysed average finish times, medical stations, toilets, entry fees and how good local accommodation was, as well as environmental factors, such as air quality, temperature, rainfall and altitude. They then collated data to give each of the 81 marathons on the list a score out of ten, naming the best and worst marathons in the world.

https://www.runnersworld.com/uk/training/marathon/a30135094/best-worst-marathons-in-the-world-study/

 

Methodology

How did we pick the marathons for the study?

All IAAF-certified marathons (476) were considered for the index. In order to refine the list, each country featuring in the list were allowed up to three marathons for inclusion. These were decided by taking city population size into account (http://worldpopulationreview.com). The marathons taking place in each country’s three “largest cities” were included in the study. During the data collection phase, any marathons missing more than 1 data point (due to no data available) were removed, leaving a final list of 81 global marathon courses.

The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) is the worldwide governing body for professional level athletics and track and field. Its purpose is to create and regulate professional level meets and to set the standards for administering competitions, using equipment, and documenting world records.
