Podcast - Soul Triathlete

Click Here to Listen. 

I take listeners with me on a ride through the Texas countryside and talk about why you really train. Is it to race? Or have you fallen in love with training and don't race that much?

As requested, I also talk about how I dropped weight and got ripped. Ripped is a relative term, but I am 36 years old and weigh exactly the same as when I was captain of my varsity swim team at age 17. Not bad!

Listen in and enjoy the sounds of nature and cars occasionally roaring by. It's good stuff. :)

SHOWNOTES!

Hi Brett,

just heard this podcast episode (sorry, I'm a bit behind after my vacation).

I liked your concept of "SoulTriathlete". In fact, there may be "SoulRunners" as well .. check out Lucho (who is training for the Chicago marathon .. or not) over at http://joghard.blogspot.com/2009/09/wednesday.html .. a lot of his ideas go in the same direction. (I've also left a comment on his blog about this idea.)

Best wishes (and I really enjoy your shows!)
