British professional triathletes and training partners Joe Skipper and Sam Proctor join us in conversation this week. There's plenty of banter and chat as we cover all things training, recovery, data, balance, teamwork, emotions and Michael Phelps. The banter starts right away. You'll hear: 19:35 How they met 20:37 What it's really like training with Joe "There's a lot of tempo isn't there?!" 'Joe's philosophy in life is how many people can I kill through training' Sam says. "But I enjoy it and because we are different, we compliment each other well. There are some laughs, some good coffee breaks. We have a really good time." 24:05 Self coached Vs Having a coach. Joe has been mainly self coached while Sam prefers to have a coach and has been working with Mark Pearce for over 5 years. 32:30 'I cant fault Joe, Joe is a really good friend and he has always helped me and supported me.' 34:40 We talk about Joe wearing his heart on his sleeve and he admits he probably is one of the most emotional athletes out there. 'When you cross the line, the mixture of fatigue that just wears you down gets me really emotional and it happens a lot, especially when I have had a big race and I have had to push so hard. It really grinds you down. I'm not an emotional person at all in normal every day life.'' Sam says: "People don't realise Joe can go into this place where others would pull the pin. He can push through that and I think that's why the emotion comes out." 52:22 Joe's mental strength and why it makes a huge difference across the Ironman distance. 'he is thinking so hard, and doing so well. He is in an 8 hour race and he is always on it and that's what makes him once of the best athletes. It's always your mind that gives up before your body.' Sam says. 54:40 Analysing data and why Joe doesn't spend much time on training peaks. 'I never look at my training on Training Peaks. It uploads onto there, but I don't do anything with it.' 57:00 Why Sam reckons Joe could be like Michael Phelps in the pool. 57:30 Joe's hopes to do some training with Lionel Sanders and Sam Long. 1:00:10 Joe's thoughts on why the Ironman World Championships should rotate away from Kona. "it's a massive boost for me in St George as it will be a lot cooler than Kona. I think the course for me is a lot better than Hawaii. I will have a lot better chance in St George. It will be my best chance so far. 1:02:15 I wouldn't care who I was beating to become World Champion. But Jan Frodeno would be one person I would love to beat to become World Champion, because of the reputation he has and it would give it a lot more credibility if you beat him to become World Champion. 1:06:10 Sam's hopes to get back on the start line of an Ironman soon Find out more about this week's guests Joe Skipper https://www.instagram.com/notanotheraveragejoe/?hl=en (Instagram) Sam Proctor https://www.instagram.com/samproctortri/?hl=en (Instagram) Like what you heard?

Posted on September 21, 2021 By Bill Plock The authentic joy Lucy Charles Barclay beamed to the world the second she broke the tape is something I'll never forget. It gave me goosebumps and seemed deep seated, especially as she came to hug her husband with tears running down her face. I have never seen or felt such happiness. Barclay, like all the athletes battled very unusual weather with a down pour of rain and hail and lightening that threatened the race. With a Barclay comfortably in the lead all day, she knew she was having “a day” and said at the press conference recalling her thoughts, “they better not cancel this race!” Gustav Iden of Norway didn't quite lead the entire way but went to the front of the pack on the bike part way through and never looked back. Fellow countryman and gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt was in that lead group when he suffered a serious mechanical failure with his wheel and fell out of contention. Boulder's Sam Long, with a solid swim battled hard to ride into second place never did catch Iden. Iden won by 5 minutes retaining his World Champion status he gained after winning in Nice in 2019. The second place finishes for Long and another Boulder resident, Jeanni Metzler may be a glimpse into the future of the sport.  Just two years ago Long finish 26 minutes back and has kept a poster of Nice in his “pain cave” as motivation ever since. Metzler has been climbing the ranks and finished 3rd in Boulder a few weeks ago behind Taylor Knibb and Emma Palant Brown, but in St. George she beat both of them. Metzler passed Knibb just a few minutes out saying later, “I didn't want a sprint finish with Taylor as I don't think that would've gone well.” Knibb finished about 30 seconds back and the two training partners and friends shared exuberant hugs in the finish area . It felt like the finish area was filled with camaraderie and respect unlike any race I had seen before. This wasn't “new blood” so to speak, but in way it felt like a new group of champions and future champions were making their mark in St. George. At the press conference, the top five male and female finishers all were under the age of 28. It's a young group who genuinely seem to enjoy each other. Of the ten, eight raced together at the Collins Cup just four weeks prior. When asked if that played into the feeling of camaraderie, Sam Long said, “I do think we all got to know each other there. It also could be because we are all pretty young, it was a bit of a different atmosphere. And I also think the sport is changing, where you can talk smack but in a friendly way and at the end everyone knows it is for fun.” Besides Coloradans, Long, Metzler and Knibb, several age group athletes made it in the top five. In no particular order. Colleen D'Reuck, Diana Hassel, Mike Wein, Eric Long (Sam's dad), and Sandi Wiebe.   So what about Kona maybe moving to St. George? St. George is an iconic venue with massive hills to run up and down. And the ride up Snow Canyon provides a separation point (along with an amazing picturesque backdrop) just before athletes start their run. There is speculation that the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona will move in the future and St. George seems primed to be a top choice. It has all the features that make a world championship course with hills, weather exposure, and a welcoming community and a downtown finish with plenty of potential to the house larger crowds seen in Kona. It is certainly more accessible than Kona and far less expensive for athletes, spectators and industry supporters. Sand Hollow reservoir is great for the swim with plenty of room for transition. In Kona the iconic pier is busting at the seams with room (barely) for 1,800 athletes. In St. George 4,200 athletes competed. Undoubtedly the age group women probably don't love the current format with the last group starting their swim at almost 10 o'clock. In normal years that would force them to be running at the hottest part of the day. This year, some had to be pulled out of the water with the rare thunderstorm that rolled through. In previous years, the 70.3 Championship features two days of racing—one for the men and one for the women. In St. George that seems a difficult task with races not generally taking place on Sundays in Utah. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future. Next year the 70.3 Championship will return to St. George along with a full distance race in June. We shall see! But for now, the young group of pro's stole the show and perhaps this race will serve as a springboard for future success for all of these athletes as they scatter into the world doing more races. In fact, watch this coming weekend in Chattanooga where Sam Long will attempt defend his title as champion and battle rival Lionel Sander—keep an eye on that! IRONMAN 70.3 Championship in St George Results (ironman.com)   IRONMAN World Championship Returns to Kona in October 2022 with Two-Day Race Format   The 2021 Supersapiens IRONMAN World Championship will take place in St. George, Utah, on May 7, 2022, giving professional triathletes the opportunity to claim a world championship title and a share of the $750,000 prize purse that goes with it. The ongoing uncertainty regarding Kailua-Kona, Hawaii`s ability to host the event in February required a change in venue to outside of Hawai`i for the first time since the inaugural event in 1978. St. George was selected as the first new host location of the event outside of Hawai`i in 40-plus years based on its strong community support, challenging course, and experience hosting IRONMAN® triathlons and other major events, including the successful recently completed 2021 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3® World Championship presented by Utah Sports Commission. St. George will also host the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on October 28-29, 2022. For the first time in the 40-plus year history of the IRONMAN World Championship, the pinnacle event for triathlon will take place over two days with the 2022 IRONMAN World Championship returning to Kona, Hawai`i on October 6 and 8, 2022. The two-day event will see an expanded women's professional field of 50 athletes race on Thursday, October 6, and 50 professional men race on Saturday, October 8. Details of the age-group races will be communicated in the coming weeks. “The loss of the past two IRONMAN World Championship races certainly dealt us an economic blow. Our restaurants have always received a big boost from the race, athletes, and their families. We are very excited to hear that with two races next October we can plan to make up for the economic losses from the past two race cancellations,” said Luana Hospitality Principal, Eric von Platen Luder “It has been a challenging few years, however we have stayed true to our goal to create exceptional experiences for our ‘ohana,” said Diana Bertsch, Senior Vice President, World Championship Events for The IRONMAN Group. “We are grateful to our host communities in St. George and Kailua-Kona as well as their local and state officials, for their willingness to trust us. Our team is committed to putting on incredible race weeks as we add pages to the IRONMAN World Championship history books in May and October 2022.”  IRONMAN athletes registered for the 2021 and 2022 editions of the IRONMAN World Championship triathlon, along with athletes currently registered for 2022 IRONMAN St. George, will be contacted directly with additional information.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2021 SUSAN LACKE    When Emily Hippen and Tristen Rogers qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship together at Steelhead 70.3 earlier this year, they immediately began making plans for a joint trip to St. George. “We were in the same age group, and so excited to have both made the cut,” said Hippen. “We had been talking about this big race and planning our time in St. George for months.” As members of the same triathlon team, HAT House Altitude Team in Denver, Colorado, the two were already frequent training buddies. But in St. George, they became more than that; they became close friends with an unbreakable bond. The pivotal moment came at mile 40 of the world championship race, when a freak storm blew through the course, bringing high winds, hail, and lightning. Approximately 70 age-group women who were still in the midst of the swim in Sand Hollow were pulled from the water; Hippen and Rogers were just a few miles into the bike leg. “I was on a climb when I saw about 20 or 30 women just standing on the side of the road,” said Rogers. “I thought that Ironman was halting the race for our safety, until the worst of the storm passed, and was preparing to stop. But then realized, when I got to the top of the climb, that these women had voluntarily pulled over because they were literally being blown off their bikes and some looked fearful for their safety. The bike ride at that point instantly became one of survival, and not of performance.” Rogers continued on, her knuckles white from the tight grip on her handlebars. After all, this was a world championship race— the first one since 2019—and she was determined to make it to the finish. Besides, she reasoned, the storm would surely pass. Meanwhile, Hippen was just ahead of her teammate on the course (“I'd been pushing all day to stay ahead of her,” she said) with the same white knuckles. She, too, was waiting for the storm to pass, when she reasoned the ride would become much easier. Just before a pivotal turn in the course, Rogers finally laid eyes on her teammate—but not the way she expected. “I heard a bunch of women ahead of me scream, and looked up and literally saw feet in the air and then a body hit the ground,” said Rogers. “It happened so fast.” Hippen, unconscious after crashing during the bike leg at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. (Photo: Courtesy of Emily Hippen) Rogers didn't realize it was her teammate who she'd seen fly into the air until she stopped to give aid. Hippen was unconscious, her eyes rolled back in her head. While other athletes hurried ahead to alert medical authorities at the aid station, Rogers stayed with her friend. A volunteer arrived to assist, and Rogers gave what information she could—Hippen's name, the name of her husband, and a phone number. When an ambulance arrived minutes later, Rogers was thanked for her help and told she could resume her race. Though the storm had finally passed by then, she couldn't bring herself to finish the race. After riding her bike back into town, she turned in her timing chip, racked her bike, and immediately headed for the hospital. Hippen, thankfully, was fine—banged up, to be sure, but expected to make a full recovery. In her post-crash fog, she was especially surprised to see Rogers. “Tristen stayed with me at the hospital, helped my husband get there, picked up my prescriptions, and got me back to our Airbnb,” Hippen said. “She did it all. All while she could have been finishing a race that was very important to her.” For Rogers, taking the DNF wasn't a difficult decision. “I don't think I would have been happy with myself had I not stopped. I want to promote all things good about being a positive member of our endurance community,” she said. “On our team website, one of the examples we have for people who are interested in joining is, ‘If you wouldn't stop and help someone on the side of the road because it is going to mess up your data/Strava/personal record, then we probably are not the team for you.'” While Hippen recovers, she'll be cheering on her friend who plans to finish her race via a self-supported 70.3 in Denver. The two have plans to qualify again for 70.3 Worlds and, this time, to finish together. “Tristen is a model athlete,” said Hippen. “Being a champion is so much more than crossing the finish line ahead of others. It means being a champion of fellow athletes and giving selflessly to others. And Tristen is a true champion.”   What's New in the 303: Pioneers Win Oktoberfest Sprint Triathlon LONGMONT, Colo. – The University of Denver Triathlon Team won the women's team event at the 2021 Oktoberfest Sprint at Union Reservoir on Sunday morning, taking each of the top-five spots and placing all nine of its athletes in the top 16. Denver freshman Freya McKinley, competing in only her second collegiate race, won the individual women's competition in a total time of 1:03:28. Graduate student Emily Pincus followed in second place at 1:05:17, while freshman Avarie Faulkner finished less than a minute later (1:06:10) to round out the podium for the Pioneers. Freshmen Olivia Ebenstein (1:06:26) and Bella Chirafisi (1:07:25) joined their teammates in the top five. The race was the DU program's first-ever in its home state. "It was just a dominating performance, wire-to-wire," said head coach Barbara Perkins. "They mixed it up a little bit with their positions during the race, but it was a super exciting meet for us. We're just so thrilled to be here, back to racing in our home state and just show what we can do. It was a strong showing, but we still have a lot more to prove this season." Also finishing for the Pioneers were senior Amanda Ballard in 11th (1:13:48), junior Stormy Hegg in 13th (1:14:57) and freshman Marta Meinardi in 16th (1:16:13). For Hegg and Meinardi, the race represented their first as collegians. Senior Grace Arlandson was among the leaders following the swim and was the first into the second transition after the bike leg, but she didn't complete the race as she was a pre-planned DNF. Pincus led all women out of the 750-meter swim in Union Reservoir and was followed closely behind by teammates Meinardi, Chirafisi, Arlandson, McKinley and Ebenstein. The Pioneers held each of the first seven spots heading into the first transition, and it was a lead they never relinquished in the race McKinley posted the fourth-fastest swim at 9:31 and moved out to the front heading into the run after recording the second-fastest bike time, finishing the 12.9-mile non-draft ride at 32:59, six seconds behind Arlandson. She completed the 5-kilometer run in 19 minutes and 12 seconds, the best mark among the women. "It was a phenomenal race, I really enjoyed it," McKinley said. "Being out there with everybody and having the motivation of the other girls and the support was so nice. To be able to race a local race in Colorado was awesome." The University of Colorado came in second place in the women's team event after placing athletes in each of the 6-10 spots, while the Air Force Academy finished third. Barbara Perkins was named the University of Denver's first triathlon head coach in program history in July 2020 and is in her second season in that position in fall 2021. In the inaugural 2020-21 campaign, Perkins guided the program's first season that featured three DU triathletes finishing in the top 10 in the Pioneers' only collegiate race: the Clermont Challenge in Florida in March 2021. Perkins joined the University of Denver as an assistant coach for the men's and women's swimming and diving team in November 2019 and served two seasons full-time in that position. Her role as the triathlon head coach was converted to a full-time position on July 21, 2021.   Video Of The Week: Lucy Charles "Pure Joy" Finish at IRONMAN 70.3 World Champs in St George https://www.instagram.com/tv/CUI1PPmpQFp/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Posted on September 21, 2021 By Bill Plock The authentic joy Lucy Charles Barclay beamed to the world the second she broke the tape is something I'll never forget. It gave me goosebumps and seemed deep seated, especially as she came to hug her husband with tears running down her face. I have never seen or felt such happiness. Barclay, like all the athletes battled very unusual weather with a down pour of rain and hail and lightening that threatened the race. With a Barclay comfortably in the lead all day, she knew she was having “a day” and said at the press conference recalling her thoughts, “they better not cancel this race!” Gustav Iden of Norway didn't quite lead the entire way but went to the front of the pack on the bike part way through and never looked back. Fellow countryman and gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt was in that lead group when he suffered a serious mechanical failure with his wheel and fell out of contention. Boulder's Sam Long, with a solid swim battled hard to ride into second place never did catch Iden. Iden won by 5 minutes retaining his World Champion status he gained after winning in Nice in 2019. The second place finishes for Long and another Boulder resident, Jeanni Metzler may be a glimpse into the future of the sport.  Just two years ago Long finish 26 minutes back and has kept a poster of Nice in his “pain cave” as motivation ever since. Metzler has been climbing the ranks and finished 3rd in Boulder a few weeks ago behind Taylor Knibb and Emma Palant Brown, but in St. George she beat both of them. Metzler passed Knibb just a few minutes out saying later, “I didn't want a sprint finish with Taylor as I don't think that would've gone well.” Knibb finished about 30 seconds back and the two training partners and friends shared exuberant hugs in the finish area . It felt like the finish area was filled with camaraderie and respect unlike any race I had seen before. This wasn't “new blood” so to speak, but in way it felt like a new group of champions and future champions were making their mark in St. George. At the press conference, the top five male and female finishers all were under the age of 28. It's a young group who genuinely seem to enjoy each other. Of the ten, eight raced together at the Collins Cup just four weeks prior. When asked if that played into the feeling of camaraderie, Sam Long said, “I do think we all got to know each other there. It also could be because we are all pretty young, it was a bit of a different atmosphere. And I also think the sport is changing, where you can talk smack but in a friendly way and at the end everyone knows it is for fun.” Besides Coloradans, Long, Metzler and Knibb, several age group athletes made it in the top five. In no particular order. Colleen D'Reuck, Diana Hassel, Mike Wein, Eric Long (Sam's dad), and Sandi Wiebe.   So what about Kona maybe moving to St. George? St. George is an iconic venue with massive hills to run up and down. And the ride up Snow Canyon provides a separation point (along with an amazing picturesque backdrop) just before athletes start their run. There is speculation that the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona will move in the future and St. George seems primed to be a top choice. It has all the features that make a world championship course with hills, weather exposure, and a welcoming community and a downtown finish with plenty of potential to the house larger crowds seen in Kona. It is certainly more accessible than Kona and far less expensive for athletes, spectators and industry supporters. Sand Hollow reservoir is great for the swim with plenty of room for transition. In Kona the iconic pier is busting at the seams with room (barely) for 1,800 athletes. In St. George 4,200 athletes competed. Undoubtedly the age group women probably don't love the current format with the last group starting their swim at almost 10 o'clock. In normal years that would force them to be running at the hottest part of the day. This year, some had to be pulled out of the water with the rare thunderstorm that rolled through. In previous years, the 70.3 Championship features two days of racing—one for the men and one for the women. In St. George that seems a difficult task with races not generally taking place on Sundays in Utah. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future. Next year the 70.3 Championship will return to St. George along with a full distance race in June. We shall see! But for now, the young group of pro's stole the show and perhaps this race will serve as a springboard for future success for all of these athletes as they scatter into the world doing more races. In fact, watch this coming weekend in Chattanooga where Sam Long will attempt defend his title as champion and battle rival Lionel Sander—keep an eye on that! IRONMAN 70.3 Championship in St George Results (ironman.com)   IRONMAN World Championship Returns to Kona in October 2022 with Two-Day Race Format   The 2021 Supersapiens IRONMAN World Championship will take place in St. George, Utah, on May 7, 2022, giving professional triathletes the opportunity to claim a world championship title and a share of the $750,000 prize purse that goes with it. The ongoing uncertainty regarding Kailua-Kona, Hawaii`s ability to host the event in February required a change in venue to outside of Hawai`i for the first time since the inaugural event in 1978. St. George was selected as the first new host location of the event outside of Hawai`i in 40-plus years based on its strong community support, challenging course, and experience hosting IRONMAN® triathlons and other major events, including the successful recently completed 2021 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3® World Championship presented by Utah Sports Commission. St. George will also host the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship on October 28-29, 2022. For the first time in the 40-plus year history of the IRONMAN World Championship, the pinnacle event for triathlon will take place over two days with the 2022 IRONMAN World Championship returning to Kona, Hawai`i on October 6 and 8, 2022. The two-day event will see an expanded women's professional field of 50 athletes race on Thursday, October 6, and 50 professional men race on Saturday, October 8. Details of the age-group races will be communicated in the coming weeks. “The loss of the past two IRONMAN World Championship races certainly dealt us an economic blow. Our restaurants have always received a big boost from the race, athletes, and their families. We are very excited to hear that with two races next October we can plan to make up for the economic losses from the past two race cancellations,” said Luana Hospitality Principal, Eric von Platen Luder “It has been a challenging few years, however we have stayed true to our goal to create exceptional experiences for our ‘ohana,” said Diana Bertsch, Senior Vice President, World Championship Events for The IRONMAN Group. “We are grateful to our host communities in St. George and Kailua-Kona as well as their local and state officials, for their willingness to trust us. Our team is committed to putting on incredible race weeks as we add pages to the IRONMAN World Championship history books in May and October 2022.”  IRONMAN athletes registered for the 2021 and 2022 editions of the IRONMAN World Championship triathlon, along with athletes currently registered for 2022 IRONMAN St. George, will be contacted directly with additional information.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2021 SUSAN LACKE    When Emily Hippen and Tristen Rogers qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship together at Steelhead 70.3 earlier this year, they immediately began making plans for a joint trip to St. George. “We were in the same age group, and so excited to have both made the cut,” said Hippen. “We had been talking about this big race and planning our time in St. George for months.” As members of the same triathlon team, HAT House Altitude Team in Denver, Colorado, the two were already frequent training buddies. But in St. George, they became more than that; they became close friends with an unbreakable bond. The pivotal moment came at mile 40 of the world championship race, when a freak storm blew through the course, bringing high winds, hail, and lightning. Approximately 70 age-group women who were still in the midst of the swim in Sand Hollow were pulled from the water; Hippen and Rogers were just a few miles into the bike leg. “I was on a climb when I saw about 20 or 30 women just standing on the side of the road,” said Rogers. “I thought that Ironman was halting the race for our safety, until the worst of the storm passed, and was preparing to stop. But then realized, when I got to the top of the climb, that these women had voluntarily pulled over because they were literally being blown off their bikes and some looked fearful for their safety. The bike ride at that point instantly became one of survival, and not of performance.” Rogers continued on, her knuckles white from the tight grip on her handlebars. After all, this was a world championship race— the first one since 2019—and she was determined to make it to the finish. Besides, she reasoned, the storm would surely pass. Meanwhile, Hippen was just ahead of her teammate on the course (“I'd been pushing all day to stay ahead of her,” she said) with the same white knuckles. She, too, was waiting for the storm to pass, when she reasoned the ride would become much easier. Just before a pivotal turn in the course, Rogers finally laid eyes on her teammate—but not the way she expected. “I heard a bunch of women ahead of me scream, and looked up and literally saw feet in the air and then a body hit the ground,” said Rogers. “It happened so fast.” Hippen, unconscious after crashing during the bike leg at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. (Photo: Courtesy of Emily Hippen) Rogers didn't realize it was her teammate who she'd seen fly into the air until she stopped to give aid. Hippen was unconscious, her eyes rolled back in her head. While other athletes hurried ahead to alert medical authorities at the aid station, Rogers stayed with her friend. A volunteer arrived to assist, and Rogers gave what information she could—Hippen's name, the name of her husband, and a phone number. When an ambulance arrived minutes later, Rogers was thanked for her help and told she could resume her race. Though the storm had finally passed by then, she couldn't bring herself to finish the race. After riding her bike back into town, she turned in her timing chip, racked her bike, and immediately headed for the hospital. Hippen, thankfully, was fine—banged up, to be sure, but expected to make a full recovery. In her post-crash fog, she was especially surprised to see Rogers. “Tristen stayed with me at the hospital, helped my husband get there, picked up my prescriptions, and got me back to our Airbnb,” Hippen said. “She did it all. All while she could have been finishing a race that was very important to her.” For Rogers, taking the DNF wasn't a difficult decision. “I don't think I would have been happy with myself had I not stopped. I want to promote all things good about being a positive member of our endurance community,” she said. “On our team website, one of the examples we have for people who are interested in joining is, ‘If you wouldn't stop and help someone on the side of the road because it is going to mess up your data/Strava/personal record, then we probably are not the team for you.'” While Hippen recovers, she'll be cheering on her friend who plans to finish her race via a self-supported 70.3 in Denver. The two have plans to qualify again for 70.3 Worlds and, this time, to finish together. “Tristen is a model athlete,” said Hippen. “Being a champion is so much more than crossing the finish line ahead of others. It means being a champion of fellow athletes and giving selflessly to others. And Tristen is a true champion.”   What's New in the 303: Pioneers Win Oktoberfest Sprint Triathlon LONGMONT, Colo. – The University of Denver Triathlon Team won the women's team event at the 2021 Oktoberfest Sprint at Union Reservoir on Sunday morning, taking each of the top-five spots and placing all nine of its athletes in the top 16. Denver freshman Freya McKinley, competing in only her second collegiate race, won the individual women's competition in a total time of 1:03:28. Graduate student Emily Pincus followed in second place at 1:05:17, while freshman Avarie Faulkner finished less than a minute later (1:06:10) to round out the podium for the Pioneers. Freshmen Olivia Ebenstein (1:06:26) and Bella Chirafisi (1:07:25) joined their teammates in the top five. The race was the DU program's first-ever in its home state. "It was just a dominating performance, wire-to-wire," said head coach Barbara Perkins. "They mixed it up a little bit with their positions during the race, but it was a super exciting meet for us. We're just so thrilled to be here, back to racing in our home state and just show what we can do. It was a strong showing, but we still have a lot more to prove this season." Also finishing for the Pioneers were senior Amanda Ballard in 11th (1:13:48), junior Stormy Hegg in 13th (1:14:57) and freshman Marta Meinardi in 16th (1:16:13). For Hegg and Meinardi, the race represented their first as collegians. Senior Grace Arlandson was among the leaders following the swim and was the first into the second transition after the bike leg, but she didn't complete the race as she was a pre-planned DNF. Pincus led all women out of the 750-meter swim in Union Reservoir and was followed closely behind by teammates Meinardi, Chirafisi, Arlandson, McKinley and Ebenstein. The Pioneers held each of the first seven spots heading into the first transition, and it was a lead they never relinquished in the race McKinley posted the fourth-fastest swim at 9:31 and moved out to the front heading into the run after recording the second-fastest bike time, finishing the 12.9-mile non-draft ride at 32:59, six seconds behind Arlandson. She completed the 5-kilometer run in 19 minutes and 12 seconds, the best mark among the women. "It was a phenomenal race, I really enjoyed it," McKinley said. "Being out there with everybody and having the motivation of the other girls and the support was so nice. To be able to race a local race in Colorado was awesome." The University of Colorado came in second place in the women's team event after placing athletes in each of the 6-10 spots, while the Air Force Academy finished third. Barbara Perkins was named the University of Denver's first triathlon head coach in program history in July 2020 and is in her second season in that position in fall 2021. In the inaugural 2020-21 campaign, Perkins guided the program's first season that featured three DU triathletes finishing in the top 10 in the Pioneers' only collegiate race: the Clermont Challenge in Florida in March 2021. Perkins joined the University of Denver as an assistant coach for the men's and women's swimming and diving team in November 2019 and served two seasons full-time in that position. Her role as the triathlon head coach was converted to a full-time position on July 21, 2021.   Video Of The Week: Lucy Charles "Pure Joy" Finish at IRONMAN 70.3 World Champs in St George https://www.instagram.com/tv/CUI1PPmpQFp/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Victories at ITU Junior European Cup events in Brno, Tabor and Antalya were followed by a Senior ITU victory at Tartu. His first major success came at the 2015 European Championship where he picked up a bronze medal.   Kristian's Norwegian National titles came in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and now he was also showing off his talents on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. He notched three consecutive victories in Bahrain between 2017 and 2019, and in both the 2018 and 2019 renewals set new world records for the half-IRONMAN.   2019 was a highly successful campaign for the Norwegian as he was also crowned winner of the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final. He finished a highly creditable fourth meanwhile at the 70.3 World Championship in Nice, a race won by one of his training partners Gustav Iden.   Kristian is also an Olympian, having competed at the 2016 Rio Games where he finished in 13th place.  He won gold at the Tokyo 2021, won again in Edmonton and World Championship double August 21st.   Blummenfelt's sporting hero growing up was Alexander Dale Oen, a swimmer from his native Norway and a European champion in 2008.  Unsurprisingly for someone who has set those world records, Kristian's motto is “go big or go home”.   Kristian Blummenfelt (protriathletes.org)   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

So powerful is his cycling ability and mentality, you feel as though he is on a mission to challenge anyone who thinks they can breakaway on the bike (from him) and win.   The result of that – for me at least, and it has been the case for some time now – is that the first major measure I look at during a race is not who is leading the swim, who is in the lead pack, is there a break etc. It's, “did you exit the swim ahead, or behind Kristian Blummenfelt?”   Ahead, and – if you have the legs to follow him – you gain access to the world's greatest domestique (!) to help overcome any swim deficit. If you are behind and you miss the Blu Train… expect a very difficult next 90 minutes.   And that, perhaps, is the primary reason why Great Britain's Alex Yee wasn't able to challenge for world championship gold on Saturday in Edmonton, despite producing the fastest run by a long way. Blummenfelt swam 18:36, Alex 18:53. Those 17 seconds would prove impossible to recover from.   Preview of the Showdown in St. George at IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships 303 is heading to St. George to bring you in-person coverage of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships. With no Kona this year, all eyes are on the desert of southwest Utah. With a hilly run course, fast bike and a predicted temperature near 100 degrees, the real sizzle isn't the rubber meeting the road, it's the clash of top triathletes on heels of the Collins Cup that has no doubt sparked some rivalries. In the women's field in particular, the match up of Daniela Ryf and Taylor Knibb seems most intriguing. At the Collins Cup they went head to head and Knibb had the biggest victory of the day of all athletes crushing Daniela by double digit minutes. But Daniela reportedly wasn't feeling her best and we all know of the four time IRONMAN World Champion capabilities. No doubt she is looking for some revenge. Obviously as the championship, the field is stacked. Maybe there is a chink in Ryf's armor? Maybe not, but Lucy Charles, Ellie Salthouse, Sky Moench, Paula Findlay and Jeanni Metzler, all with great races in Slovakia could be in the mix at the end. No doubt there are others like Holly Lawrence who crashed in the Collins Cup could fight for the podium.   The mens field offers similar drama with Sam Long, the top ranked American and one of the favorites will have stiff competition from Lionel Sanders, Gustav Iden and fellow Norwegian and Olympic Gold Medalist Kristian Blummenfelt. Last May, Long and Sanders battled shoulder to shoulder in St. George and the two have had some fun social media banter in the last 12 months. After the race in May, Long said he knew he could take advantage of the downhill with his long stride and he did so almost winning so it will be interesting to see what happens.   The Norwegians are going to be tough to beat. Both Iden and Blummenfelt have had fantastic seasons. Iden handedly won his race in Slovakia and Blummenfelt has focused on training for St. George since winning Olympic gold. With no Jan Frodeno, putting odds on this race is challenging. There are many podium worthy contenders like Chris Leiferman, Rudy Von Berg, Alistair Brownlee, Ben Kanute, Javier Gomez, Sam Appleton and maybe a dark horse to watch is Collin Chartier from Louisville, Colorado.   What's New in the 303:   Pro Race Insights from Jocelyn McCauley   https://303cycling.com/cyclists-4-community-raffling-off-new-cervelo-to-raise-money/   8 of Colorado's crazy tests on foot and bike: Jagged alpine to rowdy singletrack at night Here's a nod to some of the state's most infamous challenges spanning 100-plus miles:   Hardrock 100 Clearly, lockdowns of last year fueled ambitions. Example: François D'haene's record dash over the San Juan Mountains this summer. The French man became the first in the fearsome race's 28-year history to clock a time under 22 hours — stunning, considering the 100 miles and 33,000 feet of climbing in the jagged alpine around Silverton, Telluride and Ouray. Lottery-based entry, race is usually mid-July.   LEADVILLE 100 RACE Andy Fox of Evergreen, Colo. rides his bike near Twin Lakes during the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race Saturday, August 14, 2010 in Leadville, Colo.   Gazette file Leadville Trail 100 This is a classic in the ultra world. Where miners once flocked for gold, now runners and mountain bikers race to finish within demanding cutoffs (30 hours for runners, 12 for cyclists). It's a test of lung power, starting from North America's highest incorporated town near 10,200 feet and rising to Hope Pass above 12,600 feet. It's better known as Hopeless Pass. Lottery-based, races in late August.   Run Rabbit Run Are you a tortoise or a hare? That is the first question to ask when approaching this 100-mile sufferfest from Steamboat Springs. While gaining 20,000 feet of elevation, you'll be covering parts of the Continental Divide and the town's recognizable summits: Mount Werner and Emerald and Rabbit Ears mountains. Hares finish under 36 hours, tortoises under 30. Usually mid-September.   Flaming Foliage Relay This 165-mile overnighter showcases autumn's aspen glow where it is famously glorious, along Guanella, Georgia and Fremont passes. Running teams might struggle to admire the beauty. Their heads are down on the course between Idaho Springs and Buena Vista, crossing roads and trails amounting to about 17,000 vertical feet. Usually mid-September.   Triple Bypass In 1988, a group of cycling buddies thought it would be fun to ride from Evergreen to Vail. Ever since, that's been the idea of fun for riders traversing a trio of heart-pounding passes over 100-plus miles and 10,000-plus feet. An exclusive bunch has made it a “double triple” in recent years, pedaling back the way they came. Slated for late July/early August 2022.   Breck 100 Mountain bikers have come to know this, not the Leadville 100, as Colorado's ultimate endeavor on a saddle — a tantalizing route shaped like a clover leaf, crossing the Continental Divide three times. But the race has been on hold for two years; the pandemic again caused a cancellation this summer. And the past two plans were a condensed course, closer to 70 miles. Will the real Breck 100 return? “That's the million-dollar question,” says organizer Thane Wright. Previously mid to late July.   SBT GRVL Colorado's gravel revolution begins in Steamboat Springs, a cycling town proud of its crunchy backroads. This race has risen to prominence with a variety of endurance courses amid classic scenery. They have recently ranged from nearly 40 miles to more than 140 miles, with climbing between 2,000 and 9,400 feet. Slated for Aug. 22, 2022. Vapor Trail 125 Any ultra competitor knows about “sleep demons,” those hallucinations that manifest at night. That's when this whacky mountain bike foray begins, in the darkness of 10 p.m. It begins in Salida, where some of the whackiest riders reside, molded by the vaunted Monarch Crest. Vapor is reserved for the most skilled and wilderness prepared. One must negotiate technical singletrack by headlamp and sustain long climbs over 125 miles. Slated for Aug. 26, 2022.     Video Of The Week: Kristian Blummenfelt History Maker   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Victories at ITU Junior European Cup events in Brno, Tabor and Antalya were followed by a Senior ITU victory at Tartu. His first major success came at the 2015 European Championship where he picked up a bronze medal.   Kristian's Norwegian National titles came in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and now he was also showing off his talents on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. He notched three consecutive victories in Bahrain between 2017 and 2019, and in both the 2018 and 2019 renewals set new world records for the half-IRONMAN.   2019 was a highly successful campaign for the Norwegian as he was also crowned winner of the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final. He finished a highly creditable fourth meanwhile at the 70.3 World Championship in Nice, a race won by one of his training partners Gustav Iden.   Kristian is also an Olympian, having competed at the 2016 Rio Games where he finished in 13th place.  He won gold at the Tokyo 2021, won again in Edmonton and World Championship double August 21st.   Blummenfelt's sporting hero growing up was Alexander Dale Oen, a swimmer from his native Norway and a European champion in 2008.  Unsurprisingly for someone who has set those world records, Kristian's motto is “go big or go home”.   Kristian Blummenfelt (protriathletes.org)   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance. It's big time training and racing season.  Buddy Insurance is the kind of peace of mind so you can enjoy your training and racing to their fullest.  Buddy's mission is simple, to help people fearlessly enjoy an active and outdoor lifestyle.  You can now get on-demand accident insurance to make sure you get cash for bills fast and fill any gaps between your current coverage.  Go to buddyinsurance.com and create an account.  There's no commitment or charge to create one.  Once you have an account created, it's a snap to open your phone and in a couple clicks have coverage for the day.  Check it out!   Endurance News:   Kristian Blummenfelt sprints to Edmonton win and World Championship double Win or lose (and this year it has mostly been the former for the Norwegian), Kristian Blummenfelt impacts more races than anyone else. So powerful is his cycling ability and mentality, you feel as though he is on a mission to challenge anyone who thinks they can breakaway on the bike (from him) and win.   The result of that – for me at least, and it has been the case for some time now – is that the first major measure I look at during a race is not who is leading the swim, who is in the lead pack, is there a break etc. It's, “did you exit the swim ahead, or behind Kristian Blummenfelt?”   Ahead, and – if you have the legs to follow him – you gain access to the world's greatest domestique (!) to help overcome any swim deficit. If you are behind and you miss the Blu Train… expect a very difficult next 90 minutes.   And that, perhaps, is the primary reason why Great Britain's Alex Yee wasn't able to challenge for world championship gold on Saturday in Edmonton, despite producing the fastest run by a long way. Blummenfelt swam 18:36, Alex 18:53. Those 17 seconds would prove impossible to recover from.   Preview of the Showdown in St. George at IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships 303 is heading to St. George to bring you in-person coverage of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships. With no Kona this year, all eyes are on the desert of southwest Utah. With a hilly run course, fast bike and a predicted temperature near 100 degrees, the real sizzle isn't the rubber meeting the road, it's the clash of top triathletes on heels of the Collins Cup that has no doubt sparked some rivalries. In the women's field in particular, the match up of Daniela Ryf and Taylor Knibb seems most intriguing. At the Collins Cup they went head to head and Knibb had the biggest victory of the day of all athletes crushing Daniela by double digit minutes. But Daniela reportedly wasn't feeling her best and we all know of the four time IRONMAN World Champion capabilities. No doubt she is looking for some revenge. Obviously as the championship, the field is stacked. Maybe there is a chink in Ryf's armor? Maybe not, but Lucy Charles, Ellie Salthouse, Sky Moench, Paula Findlay and Jeanni Metzler, all with great races in Slovakia could be in the mix at the end. No doubt there are others like Holly Lawrence who crashed in the Collins Cup could fight for the podium.   The mens field offers similar drama with Sam Long, the top ranked American and one of the favorites will have stiff competition from Lionel Sanders, Gustav Iden and fellow Norwegian and Olympic Gold Medalist Kristian Blummenfelt. Last May, Long and Sanders battled shoulder to shoulder in St. George and the two have had some fun social media banter in the last 12 months. After the race in May, Long said he knew he could take advantage of the downhill with his long stride and he did so almost winning so it will be interesting to see what happens.   The Norwegians are going to be tough to beat. Both Iden and Blummenfelt have had fantastic seasons. Iden handedly won his race in Slovakia and Blummenfelt has focused on training for St. George since winning Olympic gold. With no Jan Frodeno, putting odds on this race is challenging. There are many podium worthy contenders like Chris Leiferman, Rudy Von Berg, Alistair Brownlee, Ben Kanute, Javier Gomez, Sam Appleton and maybe a dark horse to watch is Collin Chartier from Louisville, Colorado.   What's New in the 303:   Pro Race Insights from Jocelyn McCauley   https://303cycling.com/cyclists-4-community-raffling-off-new-cervelo-to-raise-money/   8 of Colorado's crazy tests on foot and bike: Jagged alpine to rowdy singletrack at night Here's a nod to some of the state's most infamous challenges spanning 100-plus miles:   Hardrock 100 Clearly, lockdowns of last year fueled ambitions. Example: François D'haene's record dash over the San Juan Mountains this summer. The French man became the first in the fearsome race's 28-year history to clock a time under 22 hours — stunning, considering the 100 miles and 33,000 feet of climbing in the jagged alpine around Silverton, Telluride and Ouray. Lottery-based entry, race is usually mid-July.   LEADVILLE 100 RACE Andy Fox of Evergreen, Colo. rides his bike near Twin Lakes during the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race Saturday, August 14, 2010 in Leadville, Colo.   Gazette file Leadville Trail 100 This is a classic in the ultra world. Where miners once flocked for gold, now runners and mountain bikers race to finish within demanding cutoffs (30 hours for runners, 12 for cyclists). It's a test of lung power, starting from North America's highest incorporated town near 10,200 feet and rising to Hope Pass above 12,600 feet. It's better known as Hopeless Pass. Lottery-based, races in late August.   Run Rabbit Run Are you a tortoise or a hare? That is the first question to ask when approaching this 100-mile sufferfest from Steamboat Springs. While gaining 20,000 feet of elevation, you'll be covering parts of the Continental Divide and the town's recognizable summits: Mount Werner and Emerald and Rabbit Ears mountains. Hares finish under 36 hours, tortoises under 30. Usually mid-September.   Flaming Foliage Relay This 165-mile overnighter showcases autumn's aspen glow where it is famously glorious, along Guanella, Georgia and Fremont passes. Running teams might struggle to admire the beauty. Their heads are down on the course between Idaho Springs and Buena Vista, crossing roads and trails amounting to about 17,000 vertical feet. Usually mid-September.   Triple Bypass In 1988, a group of cycling buddies thought it would be fun to ride from Evergreen to Vail. Ever since, that's been the idea of fun for riders traversing a trio of heart-pounding passes over 100-plus miles and 10,000-plus feet. An exclusive bunch has made it a “double triple” in recent years, pedaling back the way they came. Slated for late July/early August 2022.   Breck 100 Mountain bikers have come to know this, not the Leadville 100, as Colorado's ultimate endeavor on a saddle — a tantalizing route shaped like a clover leaf, crossing the Continental Divide three times. But the race has been on hold for two years; the pandemic again caused a cancellation this summer. And the past two plans were a condensed course, closer to 70 miles. Will the real Breck 100 return? “That's the million-dollar question,” says organizer Thane Wright. Previously mid to late July.   SBT GRVL Colorado's gravel revolution begins in Steamboat Springs, a cycling town proud of its crunchy backroads. This race has risen to prominence with a variety of endurance courses amid classic scenery. They have recently ranged from nearly 40 miles to more than 140 miles, with climbing between 2,000 and 9,400 feet. Slated for Aug. 22, 2022. Vapor Trail 125 Any ultra competitor knows about “sleep demons,” those hallucinations that manifest at night. That's when this whacky mountain bike foray begins, in the darkness of 10 p.m. It begins in Salida, where some of the whackiest riders reside, molded by the vaunted Monarch Crest. Vapor is reserved for the most skilled and wilderness prepared. One must negotiate technical singletrack by headlamp and sustain long climbs over 125 miles. Slated for Aug. 26, 2022.   Video Of The Week: Kristian Blummenfelt History Maker   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

The overall message it seems is that simply being fit doesn't mean you are healthy. That fitness does not overcome something like heart disease.   Dr. Sankoff brings in his colleague Dr. Matt Holland, a cardiology specialist at Denver Health. They discuss some very specific factors about things like what causes heart attacks versus cardiac arrest. What really is the “widow” maker and how so many different things can cause a multitude of outcomes. But the conversation is also re-assuring in terms of how most all of us can avoid these things and how rare it really is for someone like Tim O'Donnell to have experienced this.   Go here; https://www.tridocpodcast.com/episode/episode-73-bonus-episode-tim-odonnels-heart-attack-what-does-this-mean-for-the-rest-of-us   Dr. Sankoff is dedicated to helping triathletes (athletes) train healthy and his podcast features many great topics and guest dedicated to this mission. His website is https://tridoccoaching.com. Learn more about him here and subscribe to his podcast.   My Personal Experience with Heart CT Scan - SimonMed here in Denver.   Cardiac Calcium Scoring (Heart Scan) is a medical scan of coronary calcium The coronary arteries are the vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. Plaque — made of fat, calcium and other substances — can build up and narrow or close the arteries.   To detect this build-up, your physician may order cardiac calcium scoring — a test that is also known as coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring, a heart scan or calcium score.  This non-invasive CT scan (computed tomography) of the heart calculates your risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) by measuring the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries.   Plaque or calcium build-up in the coronary arteries causes heart disease or can lead to a heart attack. The coronary calcium scan is a better predictor of coronary events than cholesterol screening or other risk factor assessments.   About Your CAC Score A calcium score (sometimes called an Agatston score) is calculated based on the amount of plaque observed in the CT scan. It may be converted to a percentile rank based on your age and gender. The results from your cardiac scoring will be sent to your doctor.  Mine was a score of 26 and the 4th percentile of my age peers.   Your likelihood of having heart disease or a heart attack correlates with your calcium scoring. The lower your calcium score and percentile rank, the less likely you are to have a cardiac event compared to other men or women your age.   Calcium Score Results The purpose of the test is to understand your risk of heart attack or disease, taking preventive or corrective measures based on the results.   If you have any plaque present (a score greater than 0), your doctor may make recommendations for lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating better and exercising more. The higher your score the more treatment your doctor may recommend.   If you have a high score, you can make an appointment with one of our coronary artery disease specialists.   Zero: No plaque. Your risk of heart attack is low.   1 - 10: Small amount of plaque. You have less than a 10 percent chance of having heart disease, and your risk of heart attack is low.   11-100: Some plaque. You have mild heart disease and a moderate chance of heart attack. Your doctor may recommend other treatment in addition to lifestyle changes.   101 - 400: Moderate amount of plaque. You have heart disease and plaque may be blocking an artery. Your chance of having a heart attack is moderate to high. Your health professional may want more tests and may start treatment.   Over 400: Large amount of plaque. You have more than a 90 percent chance that plaque is blocking one of your arteries. Your chance of heart attack is high. Your health professional will want more tests and will start treatment.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Yes we have Kona and the IRONMAN World Championships but that is about individuals, today was about the teams and the sport and profession of triathlon.   The Collins Cup was designed to mirror golf's popular Ryder Cup pitting three teams of 12 athletes (6 men, 6 women) against each other. One team from Europe, the United States and Internationals.   The goal, to make professional triathlon a better spectator sport thus attracting more money to make the profession more lucrative and sustainable.   Will it work? Did it work? It's too early to say but nobody predicted the wild popularity of the Super Bowl. Triathlon will never be that popular but lets see what happens.   The Professional Triathlon Organisation orchestrated this “made for TV event”. Viewers watched 12 matches with one competitor from each team racing. Each match started 10 minutes apart. The entire race lasted about 5 hours. Cameras were all over the course capturing the 36 athletes racing in their own three person race. It was fun to watch and the coverage was good as was the announcing. It was especially fun to have Tour de France commentator Phil Liggett behind the mic. His voice just adds a tone of familiarity and importance.   IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship presented by the Utah Sports Commission. Among them will be over 100 of the world's top professional triathletes who will battle for a piece of the $350,000 USD total professional prize purse and the title of IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion.   Since the first IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was held in 2006 the women's race has seen 10 different champions from five different countries. Swiss Daniela Ryf has won an event-best five times, and is coming off an undefeated season, including a win in St. George at the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship earlier this year. Together with Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) and Leanda Cave (GBR), Ryf also holds the distinction of having won both the IRONMAN World Championship® and the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.   Aiming to dethrone Ryf will be a stellar group of professional female triathletes, including Lucy Charles-Barclay (GBR), who is coming off a recent win at 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship Elsinore. Charles-Barclay edged out Holly Lawrence (GBR) in that event, who as the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and multiple-time IRONMAN 70.3 winner will also be aiming for the top podium spot in St. George. Additional global competition will come from Paula Findlay (CAN), Taylor Knibb (USA), Kat Matthews (GBR), Skye Moench (USA), Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR), and Ellie Salthouse (AUS), each of whom continue to impress on the IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 circuits.   On the men's side, a star-studded field of professional talent will come together aiming to create history in St. George. With no clear frontrunner, a few of the dominant competitors that could take a shot for a podium spot include the defending IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion from 2019 in Nice, France, Gustav Iden (NOR); Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR), who has momentum coming into St. George following his recent Tokyo 2020 Olympic Triathlon win; and Lionel Sanders (CAN), who won the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship in St. George earlier this year and has over 20 IRONMAN 70.3 wins to his name. Also in contention are Alistair Brownlee (GBR), the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Triathlon Gold Medalist as well as Javier Gomez (ESP), the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship third place podium finisher. Finally, American's Ben Kanute (USA) and Sam Long (USA) look to claim home nation victories. Kanute has multiple IRONMAN 70.3 wins and podium finishes in recent years and a second-place finish at the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, the last time the event was held on US soil. Sam Long comes in on the top of his game having won the 2021 IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene triathlon and the 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder triathlon.     What's New in the 303: New Dura Ace? Gravel Rules   My Experience With TriDot What is TriDot?  It's a training platform, but its pretty sophisticated.  It takes your race goals, your training data, puts threshold test on your training calendar, takes those threshold test results and uses AI to automatically adjusts your training plan and workouts.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    TriDot also has an integrated App called RaceX.  Within RaceX, you can pick your "A" and "B" races (Ironman and Challenge branded).  You can browse race routes for any of the races in the database and look at the gps route, elevation and distance.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    Within Diagnostics there's a feature called Phyiogenomics.  If you've used DNA-based ancestry services like Ancestry.com or 23 and Me, there is a downloadable text file that has your genome that can be used for things like nutrigenomics (using your DNA or genome data to understand if you have genetic markers for celiac disease or allergies), or pharma genomics (using genome data to treat/prevent disease. We have a mutual friend who learned she had DNA markers putting her at likely risk for breast cancer.    TriDot has a feature called PhysiogenomiX. It uses your DNA (genome data) to tailor the training plan and workouts to your genetic profile.   I uploaded my 23 and Me genome text file to TriDot.  Within a few seconds TriDot gave me an analysis that includes categorical summary and detailed results from specific genes related to physical training. These genes shown (and others) are used to enhance your training optimization.   The categories: Training Intensity Response is a relative measure of how you respond to high-intensity versus low-intensity training. Based on your genetic variations, you are predisposed to have a greater response to either high or low-intensity training. Aerobic Potential is a measure of your potential for developing a high aerobic capacity or high oxygen utilization (VO2max). This is not a measure of your current aerobic capacity. Rather, it is a measure of your aerobic trainability--your potential for improvement with proper training. Recovery Rate is a measure of your genetic ability to recover from exercise-induced oxidative stress and inflammation. This includes the level of stress and inflammation produced and the rate at which it is cleared. Injury Predisposition is a measure of how genetically prone you are to incurring soft tissue (tendon and ligament) injuries from training.   Lauren has also done it and we compared our results.  We took the very first category of Training Intensity Response.  At the top level we were both categorized as 40% responsive to Power vs 60% responsive to Endurance.  When you drill into the details, each Gene, the Result, Effect and a summary.   At the gene level we had about a half dozen genes that were different.  In the first gene, Lauren had a piece of DNA inserted and I had both of them deleted.   ACE: Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme I have both deleted (DD) so I tend to be respond better to power based training.  Lauren tends to respond well to a mixture of power and endurance. VEGFA: Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Tends to be highly responsive to endurance training with good muscle efficiency and VO2max. Tends to adjust well to altitude training. Var-allele carriers produce a greater amount of VEGF.             IMPORTANT TO KNOW BEFORE DIGGING INTO YOUR GENETICS Your genetic makeup is only part of the equation. Genetics alone is insufficient to predict or identify talent. Genetics can't (shouldn't) be used to set or change your goals; rather, to help you reach your goals most effectively.   Video of the Week: Team Europe Win First-Ever PTO Collins Cup | Race Reaction & Highlights       Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

The overall message it seems is that simply being fit doesn't mean you are healthy. That fitness does not overcome something like heart disease.   Dr. Sankoff brings in his colleague Dr. Matt Holland, a cardiology specialist at Denver Health. They discuss some very specific factors about things like what causes heart attacks versus cardiac arrest. What really is the “widow” maker and how so many different things can cause a multitude of outcomes. But the conversation is also re-assuring in terms of how most all of us can avoid these things and how rare it really is for someone like Tim O'Donnell to have experienced this.   Go here; https://www.tridocpodcast.com/episode/episode-73-bonus-episode-tim-odonnels-heart-attack-what-does-this-mean-for-the-rest-of-us   Dr. Sankoff is dedicated to helping triathletes (athletes) train healthy and his podcast features many great topics and guest dedicated to this mission.

Plaque — made of fat, calcium and other substances — can build up and narrow or close the arteries.   To detect this build-up, your physician may order cardiac calcium scoring — a test that is also known as coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring, a heart scan or calcium score.  This non-invasive CT scan (computed tomography) of the heart calculates your risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) by measuring the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries.   Plaque or calcium build-up in the coronary arteries causes heart disease or can lead to a heart attack. The coronary calcium scan is a better predictor of coronary events than cholesterol screening or other risk factor assessments.   About Your CAC Score A calcium score (sometimes called an Agatston score) is calculated based on the amount of plaque observed in the CT scan. It may be converted to a percentile rank based on your age and gender. The results from your cardiac scoring will be sent to your doctor.  Mine was a score of 26 and the 4th percentile of my age peers.   Your likelihood of having heart disease or a heart attack correlates with your calcium scoring. The lower your calcium score and percentile rank, the less likely you are to have a cardiac event compared to other men or women your age.   Calcium Score Results The purpose of the test is to understand your risk of heart attack or disease, taking preventive or corrective measures based on the results.   If you have any plaque present (a score greater than 0), your doctor may make recommendations for lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating better and exercising more. The higher your score the more treatment your doctor may recommend.   If you have a high score, you can make an appointment with one of our coronary artery disease specialists.   Zero: No plaque. Your risk of heart attack is low.   1 - 10: Small amount of plaque. You have less than a 10 percent chance of having heart disease, and your risk of heart attack is low.   11-100: Some plaque. You have mild heart disease and a moderate chance of heart attack. Your doctor may recommend other treatment in addition to lifestyle changes.   101 - 400: Moderate amount of plaque. You have heart disease and plaque may be blocking an artery. Your chance of having a heart attack is moderate to high. Your health professional may want more tests and may start treatment.   Over 400: Large amount of plaque. You have more than a 90 percent chance that plaque is blocking one of your arteries. Your chance of heart attack is high. Your health professional will want more tests and will start treatment.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Yes we have Kona and the IRONMAN World Championships but that is about individuals, today was about the teams and the sport and profession of triathlon.   The Collins Cup was designed to mirror golf's popular Ryder Cup pitting three teams of 12 athletes (6 men, 6 women) against each other. One team from Europe, the United States and Internationals.   The goal, to make professional triathlon a better spectator sport thus attracting more money to make the profession more lucrative and sustainable.   Will it work? Did it work? It's too early to say but nobody predicted the wild popularity of the Super Bowl. Triathlon will never be that popular but lets see what happens.   The Professional Triathlon Organisation orchestrated this “made for TV event”. Viewers watched 12 matches with one competitor from each team racing. Each match started 10 minutes apart. The entire race lasted about 5 hours. Cameras were all over the course capturing the 36 athletes racing in their own three person race. It was fun to watch and the coverage was good as was the announcing. It was especially fun to have Tour de France commentator Phil Liggett behind the mic. His voice just adds a tone of familiarity and importance.   IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship presented by the Utah Sports Commission. Among them will be over 100 of the world's top professional triathletes who will battle for a piece of the $350,000 USD total professional prize purse and the title of IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion.   Since the first IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was held in 2006 the women's race has seen 10 different champions from five different countries. Swiss Daniela Ryf has won an event-best five times, and is coming off an undefeated season, including a win in St. George at the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship earlier this year. Together with Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) and Leanda Cave (GBR), Ryf also holds the distinction of having won both the IRONMAN World Championship® and the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.   Aiming to dethrone Ryf will be a stellar group of professional female triathletes, including Lucy Charles-Barclay (GBR), who is coming off a recent win at 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship Elsinore. Charles-Barclay edged out Holly Lawrence (GBR) in that event, who as the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and multiple-time IRONMAN 70.3 winner will also be aiming for the top podium spot in St. George. Additional global competition will come from Paula Findlay (CAN), Taylor Knibb (USA), Kat Matthews (GBR), Skye Moench (USA), Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR), and Ellie Salthouse (AUS), each of whom continue to impress on the IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 circuits.   On the men's side, a star-studded field of professional talent will come together aiming to create history in St. George. With no clear frontrunner, a few of the dominant competitors that could take a shot for a podium spot include the defending IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion from 2019 in Nice, France, Gustav Iden (NOR); Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR), who has momentum coming into St. George following his recent Tokyo 2020 Olympic Triathlon win; and Lionel Sanders (CAN), who won the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship in St. George earlier this year and has over 20 IRONMAN 70.3 wins to his name. Also in contention are Alistair Brownlee (GBR), the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Triathlon Gold Medalist as well as Javier Gomez (ESP), the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship third place podium finisher. Finally, American's Ben Kanute (USA) and Sam Long (USA) look to claim home nation victories. Kanute has multiple IRONMAN 70.3 wins and podium finishes in recent years and a second-place finish at the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, the last time the event was held on US soil. Sam Long comes in on the top of his game having won the 2021 IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene triathlon and the 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder triathlon.     What's New in the 303: New Dura Ace? Gravel Rules   My Experience With TriDot What is TriDot?  It's a training platform, but its pretty sophisticated.  It takes your race goals, your training data, puts threshold test on your training calendar, takes those threshold test results and uses AI to automatically adjusts your training plan and workouts.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    TriDot also has an integrated App called RaceX.  Within RaceX, you can pick your "A" and "B" races (Ironman and Challenge branded).  You can browse race routes for any of the races in the database and look at the gps route, elevation and distance.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    Within Diagnostics there's a feature called Phyiogenomics.  If you've used DNA-based ancestry services like Ancestry.com or 23 and Me, there is a downloadable text file that has your genome that can be used for things like nutrigenomics (using your DNA or genome data to understand if you have genetic markers for celiac disease or allergies), or pharma genomics (using genome data to treat/prevent disease. We have a mutual friend who learned she had DNA markers putting her at likely risk for breast cancer.    TriDot has a feature called PhysiogenomiX. It uses your DNA (genome data) to tailor the training plan and workouts to your genetic profile.   I uploaded my 23 and Me genome text file to TriDot.  Within a few seconds TriDot gave me an analysis that includes categorical summary and detailed results from specific genes related to physical training. These genes shown (and others) are used to enhance your training optimization.   The categories: Training Intensity Response is a relative measure of how you respond to high-intensity versus low-intensity training. Based on your genetic variations, you are predisposed to have a greater response to either high or low-intensity training. Aerobic Potential is a measure of your potential for developing a high aerobic capacity or high oxygen utilization (VO2max). This is not a measure of your current aerobic capacity. Rather, it is a measure of your aerobic trainability--your potential for improvement with proper training. Recovery Rate is a measure of your genetic ability to recover from exercise-induced oxidative stress and inflammation. This includes the level of stress and inflammation produced and the rate at which it is cleared. Injury Predisposition is a measure of how genetically prone you are to incurring soft tissue (tendon and ligament) injuries from training.   Lauren has also done it and we compared our results.  We took the very first category of Training Intensity Response.  At the top level we were both categorized as 40% responsive to Power vs 60% responsive to Endurance.  When you drill into the details, each Gene, the Result, Effect and a summary.   At the gene level we had about a half dozen genes that were different.  In the first gene, Lauren had a piece of DNA inserted and I had both of them deleted.   ACE: Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme I have both deleted (DD) so I tend to be respond better to power based training.  Lauren tends to respond well to a mixture of power and endurance. VEGFA: Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Tends to be highly responsive to endurance training with good muscle efficiency and VO2max. Tends to adjust well to altitude training. Var-allele carriers produce a greater amount of VEGF.             IMPORTANT TO KNOW BEFORE DIGGING INTO YOUR GENETICS Your genetic makeup is only part of the equation. Genetics alone is insufficient to predict or identify talent. Genetics can't (shouldn't) be used to set or change your goals; rather, to help you reach your goals most effectively.   Video of the Week: Team Europe Win First-Ever PTO Collins Cup | Race Reaction & Highlights       Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

I am thankful for the opportunity and grateful for the PTO's paid maternity leave policy, which has allowed women professionals to thrive in their careers while at the same time attend to their families.

(Aug. 17, 2021) – IRONMAN today announced changes to the 2021 and 2022 editions of the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship based on the continued global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel and border restrictions are expected to prevent as many as half of the athlete field from being able to attend the 2021 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship presented by Utah Sports Commission in St. George, Utah. As a result, the race will shift to a single-day event with both men and women racing on Saturday, September 18. Additionally, the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship that was set to be held in Taupō, New Zealand will also now be held in St. George, Utah, giving the travel-restricted athlete community an opportunity to race in the “Land of Endurance” with a two-day format from October 28-29, 2022.   World Championships Ironman Kona will not take place this year, moves to February 2022 After it was revealed earlier today that Ironman is offering athletes the option to defer their Kona slots from this year to 2023, 2024 or 2025, there is now much more far-reaching news: it is rumored that the Ironman World Championship in Kona will not take place this year and has been pushed to February 2022.   That rumor comes from a source known to the Triathlon Today editors who is in close contact with the Ironman organization. The news is expected to be officially announced very soon. “It is the government in Hawaii that has made this decision. Due to the high infection rate in Hawaii, it will be decided that the World Championships will not take place this year either. This will be confirmed by Ironman very soon.”   What's New in the 303: Metzler, Knibb, Pallant-Browne Added to Collins Cup After Good Showings at IM Boulder 70.3 The Collins Cup is now set and IRONMAN Boulder 70.3 no doubt had an impact as Justin Metzler, Taylor Knibb and Emma Pallant-Browne were all chosen as Captains picks to join their respective teams.

I am thankful for the opportunity and grateful for the PTO's paid maternity leave policy, which has allowed women professionals to thrive in their careers while at the same time attend to their families. While I will be leaving it all on the racecourse for the USA, it will be a joy for all the PTO professionals to celebrate the camaraderie of having our own organisation and event.”   The Collins Cup is the PTO's inaugural flagship event taking place on 28th August in Šamorín and is a new race format modelled after the Ryder Cup, which will see teams of International, European and USA athletes pitted against one another and put on display the excitement, rivalry, drama and personalities of the sport of triathlon.   UPDATED RACE PLANS ANNOUNCED FOR 2021 AND 2022 EDITIONS OF THE IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TAMPA, Fla. (Aug. 17, 2021) – IRONMAN today announced changes to the 2021 and 2022 editions of the IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship based on the continued global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel and border restrictions are expected to prevent as many as half of the athlete field from being able to attend the 2021 Intermountain Healthcare IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship presented by Utah Sports Commission in St. George, Utah. As a result, the race will shift to a single-day event with both men and women racing on Saturday, September 18. Additionally, the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship that was set to be held in Taupō, New Zealand will also now be held in St. George, Utah, giving the travel-restricted athlete community an opportunity to race in the “Land of Endurance” with a two-day format from October 28-29, 2022.   World Championships Ironman Kona will not take place this year, moves to February 2022 After it was revealed earlier today that Ironman is offering athletes the option to defer their Kona slots from this year to 2023, 2024 or 2025, there is now much more far-reaching news: it is rumored that the Ironman World Championship in Kona will not take place this year and has been pushed to February 2022.   That rumor comes from a source known to the Triathlon Today editors who is in close contact with the Ironman organization. The news is expected to be officially announced very soon. “It is the government in Hawaii that has made this decision. Due to the high infection rate in Hawaii, it will be decided that the World Championships will not take place this year either. This will be confirmed by Ironman very soon.”   What's New in the 303: Metzler, Knibb, Pallant-Browne Added to Collins Cup After Good Showings at IM Boulder 70.3 The Collins Cup is now set and IRONMAN Boulder 70.3 no doubt had an impact as Justin Metzler, Taylor Knibb and Emma Pallant-Browne were all chosen as Captains picks to join their respective teams. Metzler finished 5th in Boulder and Pallant-Browne and Knibb were first and second respectively helping them earn a spot. Also of note, added to the US team is Olympic silver medalist Katie Zaferes. Also racing in Boulder last week, and already on their teams were; Sam Long, Sam Appleton, Skye Moench, Jeanni Metzler, and Chelsea Sadaro. Colorado is well represented with residents Chris Leiferman, Matt Hanson, Rudy Von Berg, Sam Long, Justin Metzler, Jeanni Metzler, Taylor Knibb and Sam Appleton all racing in Slovakia.   Video of the Week: Countdown To The Collins Cup: Episode 1   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

She has been the USA Triathlon National Team's youngest member since she first made the team in 2017. Knibb was inspired to become a triathlete as a child after she watched her mom, Leslie Knibb, compete in an IRONMAN race and noticed the positive atmosphere. She tried a kids' race and was hooked on the sport from there, working her way through USA Triathlon's youth elite and junior elite pipelines. Up to this day, her favorite part of competing in triathlons is the camaraderie within the triathlon community, as well as the challenge of always growing and improving within the sport. In high school, she joined her school's cross-country team and swam for Nation's Capital Swim Club while continuing to compete in triathlons. She was named the Washington D.C. Gatorade Cross Country Runner of the Year and the D.C. State Athletic Association Runner of the Year in both 2014 and 2015. She was the 2015 and 2016 USA Triathlon Junior Elite national champion, the 2015 ITU Junior World Championships silver medalist, the 2016 and 2017 ITU Junior World Champion and the 2018 Under-23 World Champion— one of just three women ever to capture world titles at both the Junior and U23 levels. She also became the youngest woman to earn a spot on the podium at an ITU World Triathlon Series race in 2017, earning silver in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.   Knibb is a 2020 graduate of Cornell, where she ran NCAA track and cross-country for four years while balancing her elite triathlon career. She also joined the Cornell swim team her senior year. Today, Knibb trains in Boulder, Colorado, with Origin Performance Squad, an elite international training group coached by Ian O'Brien. Knibb considers the ITU Under-23 World Championships to be one of her favorite moments of her career because she accomplished a solid performance across all three disciplines.   Elite Triathlon Career 2021: Won gold at the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Yokohama on May 15, qualifying for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team • Made her Olympic debut on July 27 in Tokyo, placing 16th in the women's individual event • Won a silver medal in the debut of Triathlon Mixed Relay at the Olympic Games, alongside U.S. teammates Katie Zaferes, Kevin McDowell and Morgan Pearson.

Meaning he was only getting 20% of the blood he should have been to his heart. Called the Widow Maker as its the most lethal blockage. Its blockage of the LAD (left anterior descending artery) which is the main artery supplying the heart with blood.   Katie Compton Receives a 4-Year Ban From Cycling for a Positive Doping Test Katie Compton has been banned from cycling for four years, retroactive to September 16, 2020, because of a positive doping test. In a statement, the cyclocross champion announced that she never knowingly took a banned substance, and she made the decision to retire back in March. Fifteen-time U.S. national cyclocross champion Katie Compton, 42, has received a four-year suspension on competition from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after testing positive for a banned substance, the agency announced on August 11. Compton tested positive for an anabolic agent on an out-of-competition test taken on September 16, 2020. “Her urine sample was analyzed using a specialized test, known as Carbon Isotope Ratio testing, that differentiates between anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) naturally produced by the body and prohibited anabolic agents of external origin. Anabolic agents have powerful performance-enhancing capabilities and can give an athlete an unfair advantage over fellow competitors,” the USADA statement explained. Compton's ban begins retroactively, from the day her positive sample was taken. That means all of her results, race points, and prizes received since September 16, 2020, are forfeit. Compton released a statement addressing the USADA's announcement. She said her results for that sample originally came back negative for any banned substances. USADA decided to re-test it after her Athlete Biological Passport (bio-passport) was flagged for an “irregularity.” The second test of the sample came back positive for an anabolic androgenic steroid, Compton said. “This news comes with great heartache and sadness, and it is the worst possible way to end my cycling career. I need to preface this news with the fact that I have always been a clean athlete, and I am proud of how much I have accomplished racing clean and being very careful with whatever I put into my body, especially after dealing with so many health issues throughout my life. I provided a sample for USADA in September 2020 that came back negative for any banned substances, it was not even atypical. That news was communicated to me in the same way it has always been via a letter from USADA. I've received that same letter after every test I've submitted for the last 19 years. In early February of 2021, after returning from a difficult race season, I learned that the same sample from September was re-analyzed due to a bio-passport irregularity and found to be positive for an exogenous anabolic steroid. This was devastating news to me as I have never intentionally or knowingly put anything like that into my body. I know how delicate women's hormones are, and I would never choose to take anything to jeopardize my health and, as a result, suffer irreparable damage to my endocrine system. And not only that, I never took anything for ethical and moral reasons; I've been a strong proponent of clean sport my entire career and feel doing anything to enhance one's own natural ability is cheating, full stop.” Compton also said that she decided to retire in March. You can read her full statement here.   What's New in the 303: Boulder 70.3, Course Record Smoked, Electric Crowd, Close Women's Pro Race The male winner, Sam Long who grew up a few miles away, capped a perfectly imperfect day by setting a new course record. The temperature, cooler than predicted, helped keep the day from blowing up. The winds and smoke played havoc with some, but they ushered in many stories and memories on a course shared by a recent Olympian, top pro's and 2,500 age group athletes from all over the country. Emma Pallant-Browne won the women's race and moved up six spots in the PTO rankings making her an almost shoe-in for a captains pick (to be announced Thursday) for the upcoming Collins Cup. Not only did she take home $7,500 for winning Saturday, she will make at least $18,000 by making the European Collins Cup team. Olympian Taylor Knibb's debut performance at a 70.3 could hardly be called beginners luck finishing second, but she did learn a few things like needing to master the water cup grab; check out this interview with her. It will be interesting if she might be a captains pick for the Collins Cup even though her ranking puts her far out of the field (because she has been racing short, ITU races).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgPCrcBc7eQ   Triple Bypass August 21 Packet Pick-up Please being a facemask, just in case local requirements change for indoor activity.

Justin Metzler's recent 2nd place at Ironman Coeur D'Alene has propelled him into the international spotlight. It's easy to assume that performances come easy to a pro triathlete, but, as you'll hear, Justin's story is a long way from the ‘standard' tale of lifelong athletic brilliance. As a 13 year old, Justin was a massive fan of Ironman triathlon, but was struggling to break 60 minutes for 10k. What followed was over a decade of dedication to his craft, relentlessly logging the training hours and watching his times gradually improving. His payoff? 2nd place behind Sam Long at Ironman Coeur D'Alene, in a time that broke the old course record.Sponsorshttps://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat, and Precision Fuel 30 Gel and Drink mix to ensure enough carbohydrate to perform at your best.

Evan Longoria (shoulder sprain) to miss 4-6 weeks

Locked On Giants – Daily Podcast On The San Francisco Giants

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 7, 2021 25:51


On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick discusses three things we learned this weekend with the San Francisco Giants. The first thing we learned is that Evan Longoria is going to miss 4-6 weeks with a left shoulder sprain, an injury he sustained after colliding with Brandon Crawford in the 9th inning of Saturday's win against the Cubs. The Giants have been ravaged by injuries in 2021, and losing Longoria is among their biggest blows. They're also currently missing Tommy La Stella, Brandon Belt, Mike Yastrzemski, Logan Webb, and several others. Players like LaMonte Wade Jr., Jason Vosler, and Steven Duggar have filled in admirably in their absence. The second thing we learned is that the Giants may call up a young starter for Wednesday's game. Webb is on the IL, and Scott Kazmir and Nick Tropeano were recently DFA'd, so it may be Sam Long or Matt Frisbee to start Wednesday against the Rangers. The third thing we learned is some unfortunate news about Giants play-by-play announcer Duane Kuiper. Kuiper announced via the Giants on Monday that he has a medical condition that will require immediate chemotherapy treatment, and that he may miss broadcasts. Obviously, our hearts go out to Kuiper and we wish him nothing but the best and a full and speedy recovery from his condition. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Lemmon, but yesterday they battled in person to very end.  Sam Long and Lionel Sanders ran shoulder to shoulder for last three miles of IRONMAN 70.3 St. George, the North American 70.3 Championship. If it had been a 70.1, Sam may have won, but with an obvious final grimace, Sanders had one last kick and pulled away in the final turns and edged Long by five seconds. Both men collapsed at the finish line where the emotion and pain of the effort was clear when they stood and embraced like two prize fighters with nothing else to give. The made for the movies ending culminated a day that saw Long and Sanders make up time on the bike putting them in position to chase down the leaders on the run that included Boulder’s Rudy Von Berg who finished fourth. For Sam Long this was a breakthrough race. He knew that if he found himself in the exact position he did, that all his hard work had paid off. He knew Sanders was probably the one to beat and his respect (maybe admiration) for Sanders was obvious at the finish line. During the broadcast, analyst and pro triathlete Dede Griesbauer (who did an amazing job) thought Long’s move near the top of the last hill about 3 miles out may have been too soon. He caught the pack on the hill and then slipped back near the top. Was his last match burnt? Nope, and he said when asked about it, “my plan all along was to push the final 3 miles. I knew they are downhill and that I can run down quite well. I was struggling to stay with them on the uphills so had to give it everything I had.” https://www.ironman.com/im703-st-george-results Ironman 70.3 St George Results 5 seconds separating Sam and Lionel 2:10 to Magnus Daniela cruisy 5 minutes lead on 2nd place Skye Moench a close 5th to Paula Findlay   Video of the Week: Essentials of Running Mechanics with Bobby McGee Lionel Sanders VS Sam Long Final 5K 70.3 St.George   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

His mother decided to have his legs amputated at age one to improve his mobility. The cost of affording his prosthetic legs was so high it led to the family leaving their home when he was age seven and enduring several years of homelessness, before settling in Birmingham, AL, United States of America, with the help of friends and other family.    Because of a tough childhood, Sewell was forced to live homeless in San Diego. When he became involved with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, an organization that helps to provide disabled athletes with a path to success as well as running legs, his life quickly changed for the better..   He won gold in his international debut at the 2014 Para Pan Pacific Championships in Pasadena. He learned how to swim by his coach and mentor, Alan Voisard, at the Mission Valley YMCA in San Diego when he was ten years old.   Post Interview: "The only reason I wanted to learn how to swim was because I was afraid of the water."   "People noticed I was black first and then that I had a disability" "My disability saved my life"     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Sophie Watts (USA) completed the podium, ahead of Heather Jackson and Morrison, who finished the day in fifth.   Mens: Sanders held strong at the front over the second half of the run too, clocking a 1:11:11 half marathon and a winning margin of just over a minute, from Ben Kanute who battled Sam Long all through the run, making the pass in the last half mile to reach the line just five seconds ahead of the fast-improving youngster. Neither could relax, with Matt Hanson’s best of the day 1:09:16 leaving him just nine seconds short of a podium finish.   How many pros have recently been on the show and then gone on to win his or her next race? Skye Moench, yes TX 70.3 Matt Hanson, yes Daytona Chris Leiferman, IM FL Rudy Von Berg? Lisa Roberts, no   What's New in the 303:   From Galveston To Cherry Creek, CO Triathletes with Some Big Smiles and Fast Finishes; Betsy Mercer Overcomes 2019 DNF for 4th Colorado triathletes raced this weekend, in Texas and Colorado. In Galveston Texas, not only did the Colorado pros make a big impact, but one well known age grouper, Betsy Mercer raced in redemption of her 2019 attempt in Galveston where she was stopped 100 yards from the finish line because of weather. At Cherry Creek State Park, The Barking Dog Duathlon kicked off the multi-sport season with about 150 athletes racing.   Betsy finished fourth in her age group but cried at the finish line, not because she finished, but because her friend Michael Jones finished his first 70.3. Said Betsy, “I didn’t cry this time when I crossed the finish line, I cried when Michael did. That’s the beauty of triathlon, the community you’re a part of.”      Ride or Die, a Women’s Cycling Movement Matt Miller, owner of BASE Performance invited me to ride last Saturday, not an uncommon invitation as we have ridden many times. I had sort of decided to do a different ride in Denver. But Matt, said I might want to make the effort as there could be as many as 80 people riding, some from the BASE team and this new group he is sponsoring called Ride or Die. Of course I was intrigued. As it turned out the groups left at different times and when the BASE team left the other group hadn’t arrived. Three hours later upon my return, the parking lot at BASE headquarters was filled with women cyclists all buzzing from a ride. Some were friends of mine who I had no idea would be there. There was a cooler of drinks and prizes and swag and I felt a fun energy. I asked my friend Becky Furuta, no stranger to the peloton from the highest levels about what I was seeing. I know they had ridden some gravel, and some road. I saw bikes of all sorts. I didn’t know anything about this group. Becky described it as, “grassroots racing and riding, the goal is fun and camaraderie without all the staunchness and elitism that’s driving people away from the road. There’s a sense of community and fun absent the usual rivalries. I think that’s really the point of these beginner/community rides – not that they’re easy or for beginners, but that they’re accessible at every level and focused on mixing training with fun and a social component. It’s a sustainable model, and I hope it sticks around.”     PRIMAL & 303 Endurance Indoor Cycling Class, led by Bill Plock Date: Every Wednesday till it warms up Time: 12:00 Noon MST Price: FREE Place: ZOOM (Click Here) ZOOM Passcode: H49LJK Join The Ride     Video of the Week: 2019 IRONMAN World Championship: Roderick Sewell         Upcoming Interviews: Michael Murphy is a motivational speaker, paralyzed athlete, and writer.
