A spring race in Colorado with a couple visits from the biggest of our predators.  Running and marking a course in 18 inches of snow.  The lack of complainers for this certain day.  A 600 rep workout you can sink into to get the week started right.  An Everest record for speed is broken.  We watch Becoming Ultra grow up right in front of our eyes!

We are all Athletes.

Matt Frazier founded No Meat Athlete as a blog to follow his own journey and since has grown it into a loyal and respected brand! He previews his newest project, a cookbook with all plant based menu items.  We talk about the potential controversy with plant based products that are meant to feel and taste like real meat and in some instances even bleed.  We talk a bit about the Keto diet fad, branding his business, and even dive into a couple recipes you can whip up anytime!

 

Enjoy the show!

Chris Stoutenburg leaned back on a railing when he was 20 years old and fell two stories, landing on his arm on a patch of grass the size of his body.  It was a lucky fall and the beginning of his story on the show. He went on to travel the world and win multiple championship for Team Canada in wheelchair basketball, co-founded a successful Cross Fit box and founded WheelWod.com.  An inspiring story that reinforces that we are not our circumstances, we are how we react to them.

Things we didn't realize.  

  • There is repellant for sea lice, larva of jellyfish
  • Painting stripes on your legs can deter big sharks
  • People swim around Manhattan

Of course, there is much more to the world of open water swimming but these facts jumped out at us.  What does it take to prepare for such events?  What are the rules?  So much to learn about this unique sport on the show today!

We all do this as runner’s.  Check our pace too often thinking about the impending cut offs for a race 6 months away. It’s basic human nature.  We don’t want to fail.  On today’s show, why you need to trust the training and remember that all of the base training IS going to make you faster.  Enjoy the show!
