Athlete On Fire

Today's guest has just put another running themed book that takes fact, fiction, and opinion in the polarizing world of running and throws them all in the mix.  He brings us back to 1909 when an unprecedented marathon started a trend that is now stronger than ever over 100 years later. When did the first age group classification for a running event take place?  Lastly, what do your running trophies say about you when you aren't in the room.  The CoolDown is just about sharing the passion and great stories of athletes and about athletes.  This was a fun one and we learned a few pretty cool things for the next post run brew cool down!

Our guest today tells his story of how he got started racing along with the mental and physical attributes that helped him succeed as a professional.  He gives us some great challenges for getting to the tops of mountains under his own power and why he feels stronger in retirement because of one variable he didn't always control when he was competing.  Learn what he did to support mental health after his own issues after retiring as a pro with a fellow cyclist in Canada.  All along the way we take the journey that was his and learn how to do things a bit differently, especially when it comes to listening to your body when you are training for something big!  Enjoy this episode of Athlete On Fire!
