Unsweetened Ice Cream

This podcast is an interview with Emily; quite the amazing person. She's an insulin-dependant diabetic, mom, and a true hardcore triathlete. I've been wanting to interview her and share her story for a long time, so I used our time together during a car ride to Brenham, TX for a family reunion to get her undivided attention. Brenham is the hometown of Blue Bell Ice Cream and very historic and pretty.

I also recorded some audio while on a bike ride with a friend this morning and will have that out in a couple of days. My long saturday run of 9 miles was split between a 6 mile AM run and 3 mile PM run. I had some sore and pulled muscles, so I had to hold back from doing my usual 12. Later!

Swim Taxi


Buenos dias, mi amigos! Que pasa? A lot of stuff has been going down lately and I've tried to put as much as I can into today's podcast. I recorded my drive to work after an early morning swim and discuss swim practice nutrition, where Big Media is headed, meeting with the City about making more bike lanes, and gave a little background/future on the show.

Drink Gatorade while you swim.

Ok, now that we have that done, let's talk iTunes. I theorize that this week's announcements are just another clang of the bell of the death knell of Big Media. Step by step, we're leaving the old model behind and wandering into the headlights of a la carte shows. Personally, I can't wait. I'm tired of being talked down to by TV and Radio.

Now what is going on with you crazy fans and Clif Bar? I see that the Zentri Army has taken it upon themselves to make Clif my sponsor, whether Clif wants to or not. You guys are cracking me up.

I've also added the location of the South Padre Island triathlon to the Zentri Google Map. They used that pier as a transition area and rode north and back for the bike portion. Click on the marker to play the podcast right from the map.

Lots of working out en que for this weekend: Two long runs tomorrow and a 65 mile ride Sunday. Two months til ironman. I won't capitalize "ironman" because mine isn't sanctioned. ;)

The Red Tide of Courage

Get the podcast here. If you can endure me blabbing on about Clif Bar sponsorship, you'll get to some sweet audio of Professor Erich giving us a biology lesson about red tide and why it turned his triathlon into a duathlon. After that, I do a night run and some short commentary on his race and other training tips. Also, don't miss out on Runcast Weekly's latest podcast about the fear of running.

Big ups to Heidi for sending us the Ironman Schedule for TV viewing -

The 2005 Ford Ironman World Championship will air onNBC on Saturday, November 12, 2005 at 4:30PM ET.
I mention in my show to get out your trainer or treadmill and park yourself in front of that tv and train. Don't just sit there. Time on the bike is time in the bank.

Unless you live in a cave, you know that Apple released the video playing iPod today. This is very interesting because ZAT is on the verge of creating a whole lot more video content.

And now to close with my favorite line from this podcast - "What is that, medical waste?" (Erich)

Clif Bar and South Padre Triathlon Race Review

I've gotten my hands on some audio from a triathlon at South Padre Island this weekend and will be putting out a show with it either tonight or tomorrow. Also, I'll talk about early morning pre-run nutrition and Clif Bars. Talk to you later!

Mixed Salad

Cody and I go for a run during this podcast after a call-in from the infamous Tri-Borg5000. Personally, I don't recommend eating any race officials. Not too tasty in my experience. I discuss cycling transportation, beanie hats, podcasts, adventure racing, and much more while Cody tries to drag me through the woods on a mixed-surface run. I forgot to mention the link to K. Todd Storch's website - www.businessthoughtsblog.com. Kevin's wild adventure race review is on my forum at http://triathlon.blankner.com/forum/phpbbdownload/viewtopic.php?t=685. Also, Kevin asked me to mention the sponsors of his adventure racing team, so here's the list - Honey Stinger Gel and http://www.isoactive.com. I have used honey off and on as fuel gel and it is fantastic. Some fastfood joints have honey in single serving packets for free next to the ketchup and other condiments. I've been known to walk out of Whataburger with my pockets stuffed with honey packets.

Beanies are by far my favorite cold weather gear item. They're wonderfully useful and pack up tiny so you can just put them in a pocket when you've warmed up. Road Runner Sports is giving away a free beanie with any order (club members only) until October 31. Also, I talk about how merino wool is by far the best cold and/or wet weather performance fabric. Warm, breathable, water repellant, lightweight... you just can't beat it unless you're in a downpour. Find out more at www.smartwool.com or just ask your friends.
