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.

What's New in the 303:

Time to Tri booth at the Denver Rock N Roll Marathon -

  • Quintana Roo road bike give away, information table and a Jeopardy style triathlon trivia game.
  • Q1 - Do I have to be able to run the entire run portion of the triathlon?
  • Q2 - How long is the bike portion of a typical sprint triathlon?
  • Q3 - Where on your body and/or equipment to you typically have your race number displayed?
  • Q4 - Placing your bike into your specific location in transition is also known as ______ your bike?

 

How, Why and Should We Report All Cycling Incidents and Traffic Collisions -

What I learned, is that the Denver Police, and I assume it’s probably standard practice in most agencies, use Twitter as their primary news reporting and sometimes bulletins such as crime stoppers. Unless it’s an extreme situation, its really up to the media to keep a watch on these feeds for stories. So if you really want to keep up, simply follow police twitter feeds. I also learned that anyone (again presuming availability in most areas) can go to the Denver Open Data website and find out about almost anything happening in Denver. Here is a link to the traffic data and there you can see any crash, any incident and keep updated.

Endurance News:

Jaquez, an 11-year-old from Montgomery, Illinois, completed the IMT Des Moines half marathon in Iowa on Sunday, reportedly becoming the youngest person to ever run a half marathon in every state, the 50 States Half Marathon Club said in a press release Tuesday.

4x Olympian, NYC Marathon champion Shalane Flanagan retires -

Four-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan, who ended a 40-year American drought when she won the New York City Marathon in 2017, is retiring from competitive running to become a coach with the Nike Bowerman Track Club. "I have felt my North Star shifting," the 38-year-old Flanagan said Monday on social media. "My passion and purpose is no longer about MY running; it's more and more about those around me."
