I cover triathlon news, how to reach your next level of Zen, and how I managed to fit in some workouts while at the beach on vacation.

One of the highlights was using the inflatable stand up paddle board. I was cruising along with dolphins all around me for quite a while!

And finally, here's grinding out a long ride in the heat after my shifter broke. It left me with only two gears all day. That hurt. Loved it!

If you enjoy the Zen talks, stay tuned for much more. And also, my trip to North Carolina!
Pro triathlete Lesley Smith joins us to talk about eating and training with balance in our crazy sport, Kai (10 years old) beats me in a sprint triathlon, and I continue my training towards a self-supported Ultraman.
I truly enjoyed talking to Lesley and her common sense approach to eating in our sport. The constant barrage of nutrition advice coming from all angles, much of it unfounded ("Bro Science"), causes our heads to spin and lose the path so simple health.
Lastly, I talk about, "Pushing the wheelbarrow isn't hard; Thinking about it is." It's a Zen saying about the right mindset while doing difficult work.
