This week we are talking about planning your 2022 season. How to pick a race?  If you are doing IRONMAN, Challenge or any "big brand" races, you know how fast some of these races sell out.  Local races sell out fast too.  Should you commit early?  Once you've signed up, then what?  When does the training begin?  What kind of training plan is right for you?  All that and more.

Bill, I thought I'd tee up this feature discussion by throwing out a few questions for you and I to discuss.  Here they are: What to consider when planning your season? Should you register now or wait? How much should I budget for my race season? When should I start training? How to get started with a training plan? What to consider when planning your season? Rich's thoughts For me I know that I like to avoid cold water, so warmer water is a factor How accessible is the race from a travel perspective?  Is the race serviced by bike transport if travel involved? Does the race venue sound exciting? Bill's thoughts Should you register now or wait? Rich's thoughts: Generally there are a number of arguments for committing early.  Lower race entry fees and greater availability of lodging if traveling. Tier-Based Pricing generally means you save if you register early.  General entries are sold on a tiered pricing model based on slot inventory. Once slot inventory is sold out at each level, the price will go up. Bill's thoughts: How much should I budget for my race season? Rich's thoughts: Before registering for your races, make a list of all the races your are interested in doing. Eliminate with schedule conflicts and then consider the all in costs.  Long distance races tend to require travel and logistics that don't accompany local races. Current United States IRONMAN prices, of which only Ironman Cozumel's website indicates which Tier they are at. Texas Limited St George Qualification/Sold Out Tulsa $774 Des Moines $699 Lake Placid Limited Alaska Sold Out Wisconsin $799 Maryland $799 Increase Sunday Chattanooga $799 California $834 Florida $774 Cozumel Tier 1 - $675.00 Local Races:  Breakaway Athletics sent an email that they will be announcing 2022 registrations soon.  BBSC has 5 tiered price points and we just past tier 1 (their lowest prices) last Sunday November 21st.    Without Limits has also announced their 2022 race schedule. They also have a date-based tiered-pricing.  The Colorado Triathlon: Sprint Triathlon Individual: $90 until 1/1, $95 until 4/1, $100 until 5/29 at midnight Olympic Triathlon Individual: $110 until 1/1, $120 until 4/1, $130 until 5/29 at midnight Bill your thoughts? When should I begin training?  Bill, if you were going to pick a couple of events or races for 2022, what might they be?  What time of year?  When would you start training and why? Rich: My answer depends on the when your earliest and A races are in 2022, what distance you are racing, your realistic goal performance and your current level of training/fitness. As a general rule of thumb, consistency in training produces the best results.  It's best to keep a consistent schedule of training even in the NA off season.  If you are working with a coach already, you are likely in coach-designed off season plan that will bridge you to your formal periodized plan in 2022 (Base, Build, Peak and Taper). If you are not working directly with a coach, you either self-coached or self-coached with a purchased training plan more than likely.  If you are a triathlete for example, it's good to keep a consistent mix of swim, bike, run and strength if you are a triathlete.    Where can I find a training plan: Bill, what was the first race where you followed a training plan?  Was it written by a coach or purchased online? Rich's If you are new to triathlon and don't have a coach, there are a lot of great resources out there.  www.mytimetotri.com - free plans BeginnerTriathlete.com - Triathlon Training for Beginners If you are doing a Sprint or Olympic distance race, As an athlete using TriDot, as a coach, as an ambassador of TriDot, and soon to be a TriDot coach, I highly recommend you try it for 14-day Test Drive.  Start your 14-day Free Trial! When you set up your profile, you'll also pick your "A" and "B" races in the RaceX part of the TriDot app and then TriDot uses your data and AI to design and actively adjust your plan better than a coach can and certainly better than a generic off the shelf plan.  It optimize your training for better results in less time with fewer injuries. https://tridot.com/.  If you decide to continue using it, you can sign up for as little as $9.99/mo, which is cheaper than other training apps without the training plan and cheaper than most plans out there.  If you want more bells and whistles for $29 and $99/mo.  If you feel like you could benefit from active coaching (teaching form and skills, accountability, encouragement, race planning) in addition to a training plan.  You can signup for a coached service with TriDot or please send me an email to Rich@303Colorado.com.  If you do take TriDot for a test drive, there's a question "Did a coach refer you?" Please tell them coach Rich Soares referred you. Here are some of the features I really like about TriDot and why: Detailed daily workouts with training zones that take into account elevation, humidity and temperature - Environment Normalization Performance benchmarking (TriDot scores. For each discipline, a normalized functional threshold power or pace (FTP) on a 1 to 100 scale with 1 being the slowest and 100 being at or near world-record pace.) Drill and exercise videos.  Swim, bike, run and strength workouts have warmups, drills and exercises and there's a video window in the training event to show a 20-30 second video illustrating the drill.  For example, a lot of the run warm up drills have Bobby McGee demonstrating how to do them properly. Device integration (Garmin, Polar, Strava) and smart trainer (Wahoo Kicker) Swim form analysis - combination of diagnostic questions, PhysiFactors (Intensity Duration Frequency Sequence Technique) and a CVT.  Categorizes you as a Tarzan, Overglider, Overkicker, etc and each has a list of characteristics. Swim drill optimization - offers specific drills to address the negative characteristics of your swim form categorization.

Endurance News: Kristian Blummenfelt from Norway and Sara Svensk from Sweden wins Cozumel.  In his Ironman debut, the Olympic champ split a 39:41 swim, 4:02:40 bike, and a 2:35:24 run for a 7:21:12 total. Notably, second-place finisher Reudi Wild, also broke the previous Ironman world's best time with a 7:36:35 and the women's winner, Sara Svensk, set an Ironman-brand world's best time of 8:22:41. This prompted a lot of online speculation about if the course was short, if the swim was accurate.  Here's what I got from Kristian Blummenfelt's Strava Swim distance 4,222 (2.398 miles) Bike 113.14 Run 25.76 Men's Results Women's Results People For Bikes Applauds House Votes in Favor of Billions for Bike Incentives and Infrastructure in Build Back Better Act November 19, 2021 WASHINGTON, D.C. (Nov. 19, 2021) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – After months of debate and negotiations, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to send the Build Back Better (BBB) Act to the Senate, approving with it billions of dollars in funding for an electric bicycle tax credit, a bike commuter benefit, climate and equity-enhancing infrastructure and more in the $1.75 trillion social spending bill. “The House's latest vote on the Build Back Better (BBB) Act embraces bicycles as part of a climate solution thanks to new financial incentives for bikes and e-bikes and grants for climate and equity focused infrastructure improvements,” said PeopleForBikes President and CEO Jenn Dice. “We urge the Senate to take up the BBB before the end of the year so we can get to work on lowering transportation emissions while keeping all people, no matter how they travel or where they live, moving.” PeopleForBikes applauds the House for advancing wide-reaching policies to curb transportation emissions and enhance mobility. The inclusion of the E-BIKE Act, a tax credit for electric bicycles, could mean money back in the pockets of Americans looking for a green, efficient and healthy transportation option. It will support delivery workers reliant on electric bicycles, parents seeking to leave the car at home for school drop offs and anyone who wants to harness the power of an electric bicycle to meet their daily local transportation needs. PeopleForBikes is especially grateful to House leadership for shepherding the BBB through the legislative process and champions for bikes and e-bikes in Congress, specifically Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) and Mike Thompson (CA-05) for their sponsorship of the E-BIKE Act. The BBB now heads to the Senate, where a path forward remains unclear. PeopleForBikes, the bicycle industry and our partners will continue to advocate for a spending bill that includes the E-BIKE Act, climate and equity infrastructure grants and more. PeopleForBikes works at the federal, state and local levels to advance the state of bicycle infrastructure, promote incentives for bicycles and expand access to electric bicycles. For questions related to this work, please contact PeopleForBikes Director of Federal Affairs Noa Banayan at noa@peopleforbikes.org. About PeopleForBikes PeopleForBikes is making biking better for everyone by uniting millions of Americans, thousands of businesses and hundreds of communities to make every bike ride safer, more accessible and more fun. When people ride bikes, great things happen. Join us at PeopleForBikes.org. What's New in the 303: Ran into Jennifer Gutierrez swimming at Eastridge Rec Center in Highlands Ranch.  Gutierrez competed at the first Olympic triathlon at the 2000 Summer Olympics and she was the first American to qualify as a triathlete for the 2000 Olympics. She took thirteenth place with a total time of 2:03:38.48. Upcoming Guests Marianne Martin (born November 1, 1957 in Fenton, Michigan) is an American road racing cyclist. She won the first Tour de France for women in 1984. The year she won the Tour de France Martin suffered from anemia earlier in that year and had been riding poorly. At the race Martin took the lead after stage 14 where the race encountered the mountains. Martin was a good climber and never gave up the lead after that into Paris. The streets were said to contain more two million spectators watching the race. Martin was inducted into the 2012 Boulder (Colorado) Sports Hall of Fame.  She's a talented professional photographer and her work can be seen on Real Life Portraits.  She is going to help us understand women's racing, pay disparity and what it would take to close the pay gap.  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! Stay tuned, train informed, and enjoy the endurance journey!

The National Weather Service, for example, instructed hunters and outdoor recreationists to be prepared for winter conditions in the Utah mountains. This type of storm is not unusual for the month of October — and even the second half of September — in this geography, the tops of mountains.   On Saturday, October 9, at 5:30 a.m., the race started off as planned in Kaysville, Utah. This town is just north of Salt Lake City in Davis County, the namesake of DC in the race name. Runners were excited for this autumn ultra, to run a rugged course that traversed the mountain range above the northern Salt Lake City suburbs, including Francis Peak and Bountiful Peak. The more prepared runners had seen the weather forecast and knew the event's high passages, and packed their running vests accordingly with jackets and gloves, some even bringing pants as a precaution.   Kelly Sparks, the Davis County Sheriff, spoke about the shock it was to get a call of this magnitude.   “It's pretty rare, in our part of the country, to get a call that so many people are in need of assistance. We usually deal with groups of twos and threes. We got the call at about 9:30 a.m. that there were runners out on this high altitude course that needed assistance. We sent some SAR people on foot, some on snowmobile, and some on four-wheelers. Some went from the front of the course going forward, and others went from the midpoint backtracking. We needed to ensure everyone could get off safely.”   When asked about the characterization in the initial media reports of runners being lost, Sheriff Sparks stated, “I don't think anyone was lost at that time, but the [race directors] realized that it could become a real situation, with the blowing snow and visibility. We needed to get people to a warm environment as fast as possible.”   The DC Peaks 50 blizzard and athlete rescue is just the tip of the iceberg of this story.  You have to understand where this this story starts with Jake Kilgore as a CEO of a major motorize wheelchair company and the journey to ultra trail running.   Let's talk to Jake Kilgore.     There are ton of details about Jake's experience that we did not get to:   Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 41). Kindle Edition. The doctor's office is left with an Orbit prescription pad in order to make the referral process simple. This pad contains checkboxes and fields for the medical professional to order supplies and materials based on a patient's needs. Many reps would make minor changes to this prescription pad and other paperwork—adding a missed checkbox, filling in a date, or writing in “ninety-nine months” when the length of need is overlooked. Everyone knew it. The owners knew it, I knew it, and our internal reviewers knew it. Although this behavior was not permitted, everyone viewed these actions as not a big deal—and certainly not criminal.     Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 36). Kindle Edition. I used every Sunday for a one-on-one phone call with each of my four kids, rotating through them oldest to youngest, one Sunday at a time. This was the best I could do to keep a close, private, trusted relationship with each child. I dedicated all fifteen minutes to that one child. If you only had fifteen private minutes a month, being recorded by the government, what would you ask your child? What would you talk about? Inmates were charged roughly three bucks for their fifteen minutes.   Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 50). Kindle Edition. We heard the whispers, we saw the looks of “That's Jake Kilgore. The one who's going to prison soon. His poor wife and kids. Sad that his greed and unlawful conduct would do that to them.” We heard it all. We saw it all.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

In his victory in Florida over the weekend at his first long-distance race, Iden scored 107.23 PTO World Ranking Points, the second highest score for a full-distance race in 2021, just below the stellar performance of 2x World Champion Patrick Lange at Tulsa, where Lange scored 108.88 PTO World Ranking Points. Combined with Iden's 110.18 points scored at the IM 70.3 World Championship® and the 111.34 points he scored at The Collins Cup, this gives Iden a nearly unassailable average of 109.62 PTO World Ranking Points.   With Jan Frodeno, PTO World No. 2, announcing that he is not expected to race again this season, Iden is set to finish the season as PTO World No. 1. This will be the first year since the PTO Rankings began in 2016 that Frodeno has not been PTO World No. 1 and might signal that the Changing of the Guard has well and truly begun.   The PTO World Rankings are based on the average number of PTO World Ranking Points that an athlete has earned for their three best races in 2021. Frodeno's best three races are 112.86 points at The Collins Cup, 107.51 points at Challenge Miami and 88.10 points at Challenge Gran Canaria, giving him an average of 102.82 PTO World Rankings Points. Should Frodeno decide to race again before December 31 and was to score 108.52 or more PTO World Rankings Points, he would reclaim the PTO World No. 1 ranking.   Ironman Arizona Schedule:  Thursday, Nov. 19 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. - IRONMAN Village Opens – Tempe Beach Park Friday, Nov. 20 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. - IRONMAN Village Opens – Tempe Beach Park Media Credential pick up time and location will be coordinated upon approval of credentials.

TriDot is using millions of records from tens of thousands of athletes to make hundreds of calculations to design the perfect workout and training plan.  It then automatically adjusts based on your training and if you miss a workout.    I am signing up to be a TriDot coach because I believe the platform is that good.  But this has caused me to ask the question, what coaching services that am I providing do athletes value most in a coaching relationship?    Question:  Bill, it's been a while since either of us was actively coached, but question for you:  When you accomplished your goal, what services did you appreciate the most?    Here's a list of typical coaching services.  I'll read the list and you tell me what your top 5 and maybe what would be really low on your list.  That work?   Assessing current fitness and realistic goals Designing a perfect training plan Adjust and redesign training for life events or injuries Test and establish athletes training zones Provide inspiration and encouragement Provide feedback and accountability for training compliance Teach best practices and safety during training Teach swim form, drills, bicycle handling and running form Teach strategies for mental resilience Assess hydration and nutrition needs and develop athlete specific strategies Teach how to setup devices to be congruent with training workouts and compatible with athletes gear   Upcoming Guests Marianne Martin is the first woman to win the Tour de France in 1978.  Marianne Martin (born November 1, 1957 in Fenton, Michigan) is an American road racing cyclist. She won the first Tour de France for women in 1984, covering the 616-mile course in 29 hours, 39 minutes, and 2 seconds. The race was held in July and had 18 stages. The women's tour ran the same time as the men's and finished 2–3 hours before the men each day.[1][2]   The year she won the Tour de France Martin suffered from anemia earlier in that year and had been riding poorly. At the race Martin took the lead after stage 14 where the race encountered the mountains. Martin was a good climber and never gave up the lead after that into Paris. The streets were said to contain more two million spectators watching the race.   Martin, along with runners up Heleen Hage (Dutch) and Deborah Shumway (American), stood on the podium with male champions Laurent Fignon, Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond. Fignon's prizes were valued at over $225,000 (adjusted to 2016). Martin was awarded a trophy and $1,000.[3]   Martin was inducted into the 2012 Boulder (Colorado) Sports Hall of Fame.[4]     Video Of The Week When Mother Nature Says No | DC Peaks 50 Miler 2021     Aid Station Mentality: Enduring Life Challenge's Through Ultra Running     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 learned about triathlon and signed up for her first race a few weeks later. Seely was a member of the Arizona State University collegiate club triathlon team and a nationally ranked triathlete before her diagnosis. In 2010, Seely was diagnosed with Chiari II Malformation, basilar invagination, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which affect her brain, spine, and connective tissues.   After her first surgery, she was back to competing seven weeks later at the USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championships with ASU. She made her debut as an elite paratriathlete in 2012, earning bronze at the ITU Paratriathlon World Championships that year. Then in 2013, Seely had her left leg amputated below the knee due to complications and increased spasticity in her foot. That would move her into a new paratriathlon category — but she continued to thrive, winning five gold medals on the elite ITU circuit in 2014. She earned her first two world championship titles in 2015 and 2016.   At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, Seely made history by winning a gold medal in paratriathlon's debut as a Paralympic medal event. She also competed in track & field at the Rio Games, placing sixth in the 200m. That same year, she was a featured athlete in ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue. Seely has been dominant in the women's PTS2 division since Rio, earning silver at the 2017 World Championships and winning her third career world title in 2018 after an undefeated 2018 elite season. In July of 2019, Seely won an ESPY for Best Female Athlete with a Disability. She faced significant health challenges in late 2020 and early 2021, spending several months in the hospital with endocarditis, severe inflammation of the heart. She returned to full-time training in the spring, regaining her fitness in time to earn a silver medal at the Americas Triathlon Para Championships June 27 in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, a key selection event for the Tokyo Games.   She says her biggest inspiration in life is her grandma for pushing her to be a better athlete and human and to make the world around her better. She also credits her service dog Mowgli as being a great training and life partner. When she travels for competitions, Seely collects postcards and mini silver spoons from each location. Her favorite spoon is a hand-painted ceramic spoon from Estonia, and some of her favorite places that she has traveled to are Northern Ireland and Poland. She says her name is spelled “Allysa” because of a misspelling on her birth certificate, and of her biggest talents outside of triathlon is creating DIY projects.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Sonya Looney: You're Not Entitled to the Outcome - R4R 273

The Running for Real Podcast

Sonya Looney describes herself as a normal person who has been able to achieve extraordinary things through hard work, self-belief, determination, moxie, and grit. That includes being a World Champion mountain bike racer who has competed in over 25 countries, in places like the Sahara Desert, the Himalayas, and the Mongolian steppes. She's also a runner, a TEDx speaker, an entrepreneur, and host of her own podcast, The Sonya Looney Show. “I love the ultra endurance stuff just because I feel like you really get to know who you are as a person.” Sonya's mountain bike races are usually 50 - 100 miles or 24-hour races.  She loves the endurance aspect, and also that “you have a lot of time out there and it's so mental, and the range of emotions that you experience in the course of a day is so diverse, and you wouldn't necessarily feel those in your daily life.” “If I can safely push through this thing, then that builds my confidence and my self- belief for the next time.” The obstacles in endurance mountain bike racing require the rider to make a choice: do I go on, or do I quit?  Life, of course, is the same. As Sonya says, “you learn over time that giving up makes you give up more,” so she chooses to take on the challenges.  You can look back on the hard things that you did and got through, and then “you can remember that and then you just keep going and going.” “Optimism is accepting the difficult things as they come up, but knowing that with effort and maybe a little bit of grit that they can get even better.” Sonya believes that to do those hard things, you need to train optimism. That doesn't mean “just blindly thinking that everything is going to be fine and ignoring all the difficult things.”  You need to be aware of your negative thoughts, but instead of giving into them, you can work on confronting and overcoming them. “The outcome isn't the most important thing about what you're doing.”  One of the greatest fears that people have is failing to meet the expectations of others, or even harder, of ourselves.  Sonya emphasizes the importance of being focused on the process, because “you're not entitled to the outcome. Like you might think, “I deserve to win' or ‘I deserve this,' but so does everybody else out there that's working just as hard as you, or maybe even harder than you. So really it's about being proud of your effort at the end of the day.” “Our lives get over complicated, focusing on all these things that we think that we need to feel good.” One thing that Sonya has learned through her travels in other countries is that “you don't really need that much to be happy.”  There are places where people live very simply, but they've found a way to make it work for them.  Seeing that has made her ask herself what she really needs to feel fulfilled, and to appreciate all “the basic things we take for granted.” “Ask yourself, what are the consequences if I don't speak up and will I regret it if I don't speak up or do the thing?” Sonya has chosen to compete in some smaller races in other countries because it's important to her “to have a different lens on life,” even if that means passing up more prestigious races that could get her bigger sponsorships or more media coverage.  She's found that when you don't follow your heart, “a lot of times you do regret it if you don't do it, and that's because it's clashing with something that you fundamentally believe in.” “I think a lot of us do feel like people will love us more if you achieve more.” Following your own path can be difficult, especially if it means doing something that you're afraid you might not be good at, or that other people won't approve of or understand. But Sonya believes that “if you have the courage to explore that curiosity, to just open a door or to try an opportunity that comes your way that sounds interesting, you're going to learn so much.”  As she says, “it's not my quote, but  be brave enough to suck at something new.” “Just focus on the joy of getting better, because there is a lot of fun in getting better at something, but it requires getting started, even if you're bad at it.” Resources: Sonya's website The Sonya Looney Show Tina's interview on Sonya's podcast Sonya's TEDx Talk Sonya's Instagram Sonya's Facebook Running for Real NYC Marathon Watch-Along Thank you to Tracksmith and Generation UCAN for sponsoring this episode.

The USA Triathlon Foundation Ambassador Team is a group of dedicated individuals who are committed to raising awareness for the USA Triathlon Foundation and its mission, which is transforming lives through sport by opening pathways to swimming, biking, and running for all. The application window runs from Oct 15th through Nov 5th.   The ambassador team is based around the everyday triathlete who has a passion for giving back. Through local service projects, community outreach activities and beginner triathlon clinics, ambassadors embody the goals of the USA Triathlon Foundation: to support and promote triathlon, and to open pathways to triathlon to those for whom it might not otherwise be possible.   Outreach activities will support one of the Foundation's three key focus areas: encouraging every child to participate, inspiring adaptive athletes to get involved, and igniting athletes' dreams of competing at the Olympic or Paralympic Games.   “The impact our ambassadors have had in growing and supporting the sport of triathlon in their local communities, as well as at national and world events, is a testament to the passion and dedication the multisport family displays on a daily basis.” said Laura Goodwin, Foundation Development and Program Coordinator for the USA Triathlon Foundation. “We look forward to growing both the influence and outreach of the Ambassador team as we field the largest team yet this year.”   Ambassador team members will participate in service projects on-site at the 2022 Toyota Legacy Triathlon in Long Beach, Calif., on July 15-17 and the Toyota USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships in Milwaukee on August 6-7. Service projects will support local triathlon communities and multisport-focused charities in each host city.     What's New in the 303:   Colorado's Newest Safety Stop Community On October 19, Manitou Springs became the latest Colorado community to adopt the Safety Stop! Bicyclists in Manitou can now treat stop signs as yield signs and stop lights as stop signs when the coast is clear. John Graham, the Mayor of Manitou Springs said in a statement, “Creating an environment where our roads are more comfortable for everyone—at no cost to the taxpayers—is a great achievement for the City of Manitou Springs, and we hope to see other municipalities follow suit in the future.”   Congratulations to the residents of Manitou Springs!   We're excited to see more communities in Colorado passing this common-sense ordinance. We're gearing up for the 2022 legislative session, where we're fighting to pass a law that would standardize the Safety Stop across the state.   The Safety Stop Several Colorado communities allow bicyclists to perform the Safety Stop, a safer way for people on bikes to cross at intersections when they have the right of way. The maneuver allows people riding bicycles to:   treat stop signs as yield signs. treat red lights as stop signs. The Safety Stop does not impact the current right-of-way. People on bicycles can proceed straight, right, or left at a reasonable speed of no more than 15 miles per hour only when the coast is clear.

“It was a win-win either way. If they go with me, they're running my race, and that's great. And if they don't go with me, I have a huge lead at Boston, and that's pretty awesome, too!” If you watched the 2021 Boston Marathon, you got to know CJ Albertson — or at least his face — pretty well. That's because CJ, who runs professionally for Brooks Running, took the lead in the men's elite race right from the start, and held it for 21 miles. He ran solo that entire time, gapping the rest of the field by two minutes at one point. After 21 miles, the pack caught up to CJ — who was also celebrating his birthday that day — but he was able to hang in and ultimately finished 10th. Those 21 miles at the front may have put CJ on the Boston map, but he's hardly new to the running scene. The California native is a 2:11 marathoner and cross-country and track coach at Clovis Community College. In 2019, he completed the indoor marathon world record challenge in 2 hours 17 minutes and 59 seconds. (That's 26.2 miles, indoors, on a 200-meter track!) Then, in 2020, CJ set an all-surface 50K world best time of 2:42:30, which he also ran on a track. CJ loves pursuing the fun side of running, and is always up for a challenge, whether it's leading the Boston Marathon or topping the leaderboard of every Peloton class he takes.

I've been in touch with Justin Metzler @bigmetztri and we are going to get him on the show after the race. Weather and water temp reports - American River (Folsom), CA water temperature in October (seatemperature.info) On Wednesday the temperature was 59.0     What's New in the 303:   Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock   In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau.   The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins.  Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins.   The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel.   Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away.   The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision.   The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.”   Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.”   The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.     Upcoming Guests Matt Bach from TriDot Justin Metzler @bigmetztri     Video Of The Week 2021 IRONMAN California Race Recon Webinar Presented by RaceX John Mayfield, TriDot Director of Community September 21   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 just turned around and it was like, oh man, I'm an Olympic photographer. With that one click.” Jason Suarez — also known as @notafraidtofail — is one of the best, most sought-after photographers in running today. He has shot nearly every track and field event, every major marathon, and every athlete you know, love, and follow in this sport. And we recorded this conversation just a few days after Jason returned from a true dream-come-true experience: being an official photographer at the Olympic Games. He shot the track and field events inside Olympic Stadium, and dabbled in shooting new events, including gymnastics and swimming. But the Queens-born-and-raised former collegiate sprinter turned marathoner never planned for or expected this life. On this episode, Jason talks about his career trajectory — in addition to being a professional photographer, he also works for Apple — and about the importance of networking, relationships, and being a good person along the way. He talks about breaking into the industry, and shares his career highlights, including spending a week in Kenya with Eliud Kipchoge.

She ran just to run with a new boyfriend. Like three miles. A couple of months later she walked on to CU's cross country team and has been running ever since. And just recently, she was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Wow. She never played sports growing up, never ran, never did anything but work and go to school. In this video interview, Deb expresses a surprised happiness after being selected for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. But she also shares something vulnerable; how running in college was the first time she ever experienced feeling truly happy.  Whats not really discussed, is the rocky and almost impossible path she took to get here. If you knew Deb in high school you probably would never have foreseen her making the Colorado Running H.O.A.  But like 99% of her classmates, I had no idea how hard her life was until we reconvened about this honor almost 40 years later. My high school experience differed greatly from Deb's even though we both went to Wheat Ridge and graduated in 1983. I played sports, didn't work, had a car, stayed busy with practices and homework and hanging out with friends. Admittedly, I led the “Leave it Beaver” lifestyle (yes I'm dating myself), like a good chunk of my fellow “Farmers” (our mascot). Deb, living just a few miles away lived in poverty. Her mom forged her birth certificate when she was 13 so she could work. Her bed was an old army cot. They had no refrigerator and the house was in disrepair. Her parents didn't want her to go to college but rather help with the other kids. There was no modeling of “success” or “ambition” in her home. Yet she excelled at school and knew she had to figure out a way to go to college. She admittedly didn't understand true happiness and felt lonely. Her friend and fellow classmate, Chris Tomlinson, one of the few who knew of Deb's tough childhood said, “she was very smart, but seemed anxious and isolated. It seemed touch and go for her.”   Wendy Koenig A middle distance runner, Wendy Koenig competed seven times for the United States in international dual meets. She was a three-time AIAW Champion, in 1975 in the 880 yards, and in 1976 at both 800 and 1,500 metres. Koenig also won three AAU titles, outdoors in the 1973 880 and in 1976 in the 1,500, and indoors in the 1979 800. On 24 March 1973, she set one of the very early world records for the 400 hurdles with 59.08, the first woman to run the event under one minute. Koenig ran for Colorado State University, and competed at the 1972 Olympics as Wendy Koenig and the 1976 Olympics as Wendy Knudson. Personal Bests: 440y – 54.60 (1975); 800 – 1:59.91 (1976); 1500 – 4:21.80 (1976); Mile – 4:47.7i (1976); 3000 – 9:49.0 (1976); 2 Miles – 10:34.0 (1976); 100H – 14.8 (1971); 400H – 59.08 (1973); HJ – 5-5 [1.65] (1974); LJ – 19-10¾i [6.06] (1979); Pen - 4167 (1971).     Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau. The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins.  Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins. The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel. Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away. The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision. The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.” Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.” The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.   Upcoming Guests Matt Bach from TriDot Jared Fisher Escape Adventures   Video Of The Week Deb Conley--Talks about her amazing journey landing her in the Colorado Running Hall of Fame   I'm doing IRONMAN CALIFORNIA - Justin Metzler   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!

It Strengthens Your Joints. Numerous studies have shown that, contrary to what your sedentary friends may sometimes argue, running does not cause arthritis. New research shows, in fact, that running may actually help strengthen your joints against future wear and tear, says Jean-Francois Esculier, leader of research and development for The Running Clinic (headquartered near Montreal, Canada) and a medical professor at the University of British Columbia.   In a Sept. 3 paper in Sports Medicine, Esculier's team examined 43 studies that had used MRI to measure the effect of running on cartilage. One major finding of these studies, he says, was that the impact from running squeezes water out of cartilage and into the underlying bone. That means that an MRI taken immediately after running will show a decrease in cartilage thickness. So, Esculier says, “If you want to say running is bad, you can show a study that shows it reduces the thickness of the cartilage.” But the effect is transient and harmless, he says, because the moment you finish your run, the cartilage begins to reabsorb water and expand back to normal. “It only takes an hour,” he says. In fact, he says, running may actually be beneficial. Historically, Esculier says, doctors, researchers, and runners were taught that cartilage simply is what it is, and won't respond to training. “But we now know that cartilage can adapt,” he says. “Even with novice runners, after only 10 weeks, you see changes in cartilage so that it can actually tolerate more load.” What's happening, he says, is a side-effect of having fluid squeezed out of the cartilage into the underlying bone. When it comes back, he says, it brings with it nutrients that feed the cartilage and make it stronger. “So not only is running not bad for your joints, it's actually good for your joints,” he says. It isn't just beginners whose joints can strengthen with use. Studies of more experienced runners, he says, suggest that they have developed cartilage that is more resistant to the type of impacts seen in running than that of non-runners. One of the more dramatic studies looked at competitors in the TransEurope FootRace, a 4,486-kilometer mountain run (2,787 miles) that went from Sicily to northern Scandinavia in 64 days. A team of scientists followed the runners, using a portable MRI to assess them every 900 kilometers or so. Amazingly, Esculier says, they found not only that the competitors didn't have cartilage damage, but that their cartilage adapted during the race. About Bill's friend London Marathon - Raphael Pacheco Deb Connelly - Monday Running   What's New in the 303: Small Town America at the Heart of Gravel Racing? The Rad Dirt in Trinidad Shows Us Why Posted on October 5, 2021 By Becky Furuta If the heart of gravel racing is the wild west of cycling – where the rules are few and weirdness is welcomed instead of scrutinized – small town America is its soul. The lure of gravel racing is in the long, off-road adventure. It's tricky trails and hellacious hills and mud so thick it's like riding through peanut butter and rolling roads with expansive views. It's dust and limestone chunks and pea gravel that bury your tires like quicksand. Due in part to its grassroots heritage, gravel remains the antidote to the technology-driven, aggressive and often super-competitive mentality of road cycling. Most of today's gravel grinders began as small-scale events, and often with no entry fees. Despite their growth, they're dripping with the same low-key attitude that attracted participants in the first place. Small towns and gravel are perfectly paired. A convergence of factors have fueled gravel's popularity, but all speak to quiet country roads with little traffic and natural scenery. The character of these towns shape the events and the way they unfold. Trinidad, Colorado is no exception. And the quirky town on the New Mexico border may well become one of gravel's new hotspots. The small city of 9000 residents was founded in 1862 after rich coal seams were discovered in the region. By 1910, Trinidad was a company town. Colorado Fuel and Iron operated the largest steel mills in the West, and dozens of mines, coke ovens and transportation lines cropped up to support local industry. CF&I created small communities for the workers they recruited to come from Europe, believing they were less likely to try and organize. To the contrary, this led to one of the darkest chapters in American labor history. Just a few miles north of Trinidad in the Spring of 1914, Union organizer Louis Tikas and 20 others were killed in a violent company crackdown known as the Ludlow Massacre. It was a bloody insurrection that occurred in protest of brutal working conditions. Three of the victims – a woman and her two children – suffocated in the dirt pit where they were hiding. By the 1920s, the coal industry was fading but Trinidad found a new, strange prosperity when mobster Al Capone and his family took the town during prohibition. They were able to easily blend in with local Italian families who continued to call the city home. Lavish hotels, a Carnegie library, an Opera House and the oldest synagogue in the state of Colorado cropped up in what would be called “the Victorian jewel of Southern Colorado.” Just having dirt alone isn't enough to make Trinidad a gravel success story. Part of an event's draw is the community itself, and how well they embrace the cyclists who come to visit. It's about the community and the culture, the adventure and the Instagram images of rolling hills and farmland. It's about getting people to drive hours in search of something different. Trinidad seems to understand all of that. City Council members greeted riders at the start and the finish. Restaurants enthusiastically marketed to gravel tourists. (Just ask me about the singing waiters at Rino Italian Restaurant downtown.) The route featured unique terrain you won't find at other gravel events. Only time will tell if Trinidad's next identity is built around bikes and outdoor tourism, but judging by the reactions of participants in The Rad Dirt Fest, it's right on track. Trinidad, like so many other rural communities, may well become a town transformed by bikes.     Video Of The Week: Ironman Chattanooga 2021 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!

“That was the moment where I remember being like, ‘Oh, I'm not done yet.' Like I know there's more. It finally hit me, ‘If you just continue on, you have no idea where your ceiling is.' So at that point, I just wanted to see how far I could go.” This summer, Erika Kemp — like so many professional runners — had one really, really, really big goal race. Since going pro in 2018 and signing with the Boston Athletic Association and adidas, Erika knew she would want to compete at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials in hopes of making her Team USA debut. When it came time to race the 5K at Hayward Field, Erika made it through the first round and advanced to the finals. But ultimately, she finished last that day, and didn't make the 2020 Olympic team. But! Erika has gone on to have an incredible season since then. On this episode, Erika talks about her physical and emotional recovery from the Trials, and explains her motivation for continuing to race throughout the year.

Taking up the chance to be a professional in 2012 as she turned 20, she had to make a drastic decision to give herself the best chance of success.   Jeanni explains: "I left South Africa with pretty much nothing - but, with the support of my family, I was able to make a life for myself as a professional athlete in the United States."   The first couple of years were tough, but her breakthrough moment came late in 2015 when she won IRONMAN 70.3 Austin thanks to a storming run. This was to become a common theme.   Jeanni came back a year later to defend her title and then won the inaugural 70.3 Xiamen race that November.   She was on her way now, and the wins started to stack up. In 2017 there were four 70.3 titles at Liuzhou, Monterrey, Boulder and Los Cabos, as well as a first top-10 in the 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga. Just for good measure, she grabbed a Challenge Iceland title too.   But it was the triumph in her adopted home of Boulder which struck a chord and showed how far she'd come. She had previously been sixth in 2015 and runner-up in 2016.   There were also two significant returns to her country of birth in 2018, first to win 70.3 South Africa (at the scene of that 2011 age-group success) and then to place seventh in the 70.3 World Championship at Port Elizabeth.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

It has only been in recent years that researchers have begun to include women in their studies, and, perhaps not surprisingly, some differences are beginning to emerge. A recent study looking at the differences between male and female marathoners found that women's hearts actually respond differently than men's after training for a marathon.   The study The paper, entitled “Sex differences in cardiovascular adaptations in recreational marathon runners,” aimed to examine various changes in heart function in male and female marathoners and recreational athletes. The researchers included 52 marathoners (28 females and 24 males) who had completed five to seven marathons over three years and 49 recreationally active adults (25 females and 24 males) as controls.   The researchers studied the hearts of each participant, focusing on three main measurements:   Left ventricle function: the left ventricle pumps oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body. Aortic stiffness: occurs when the elastic fibers within the arterial wall (elastin) begin to fray due to mechanical stress. Ventricular-vascular coupling: the ratio of arterial to left ventricle elastance, a key determinant of cardiac performance. The results After studying the hearts of all the participants, the researchers found that women who have completed multiple marathons do not have reduced left ventricle function or aortic stiffness compared to male marathoners or female recreationally active athletes (both of which are good things). Interestingly, they appear to have better ventricular-vascular coupling compared to the other test groups, which means their hearts are more mechanically efficient after undergoing a marathon training cycle. In other words, women's hearts may respond better to marathon training than men's.   The reason for this is unclear, but the researchers believe it could have something to do with the estrogen levels in female athletes. Studies show that estrogen positively modulates cardiac hypertrophy (the heart's tendency to get bigger with training), lowers blood pressure and decreases arterial stiffness, all of which make for a healthier, stronger heart.   The researchers conclude the studying by acknowledging that future studies are needed to better understand the influence of sex hormones (in particular, estrogen) on cardiovascular adaptations in marathon runners. This will create a greater understanding of how women adapt to marathon training and may lead to better training protocols for female distance runners in the future.   Brownlees Step Aside, Alex Yee is The New Heir to The British Tri Throne – Triathlete   What's New in the 303:   Still a Couple of Triathlons in Colorado in October The Last Call Triathlon at Boyd Lake near Loveland was the last triathlon along the front range but there are still a couple of opportunities to race in Montrose and Alamosa. The Black Canyon Triathlon (Montrose) October 2nd and the Splashland Triathlon (Alamosa) October 19th are still on the calendar. These are pool based triathlons and in Alamosa the pool is a hot springs–and the swim is last.   With fall colors peaking in the high country, a trip to either venue will be full of color and adventure. We caught up with Montrose resident Julie Burdick who participates in all of the Southwestern Triathlon Series triathlons to learn more. As a busy mom of twins and recovering from Covid, she is looking forward to this week's triathlon more than ever.   Ready for Some Cold Weather Riding? Some “Pro Tips” on Embrocation Products Posted on September 29, 2021 By Val Sanford   With cooler weather heading our way (finally) and cyclocross season upon us, now might be the time to try embrocation to help warm those muscles up. Here are some “pro tips” from a top maker–Bluerub.   PERFORM BETTER IN COLD WEATHER   If you cycle in cold weather, use an embrocation product like bluerub's MUSCLE to increase your comfort while riding. You'll add warmth and increased circulation to your legs, so you can ride farther and go longer.    HOW EMBROCATION WORKS   Embrocation products blend warming ingredients like capsicum, mint essential oils, clove oil, black pepper essential oil, camphor, and menthol to signal the body to “warm-up” the area where it was applied. When used before cold-weather exercise, it acts as a signal to tell the body to increase circulation to the legs. You'll feel the cold less, and your legs will thank you.   7 PRO-TIPS FOR USING EMBROCATION   EMBRO AFTER YOU KIT UP You've got the idea now that embrocation is all about warming! So you'll want to put on your kit first. That will keep all those warming oils away from the parts of your body you definitely don't want to ‘warm-up.” Think capsicum blended into your chamois. Yikes!   APPLY ABOUT 30 MINUTES BEFORE YOU RIDE Typically, you'll feel the effects of embrocation about 30 minutes after you apply it. But everyone's body is different, so you'll want to do some experimentation before a big race. This means you'll need to be thinking about your pre-race/pre-ride routine and make sure you've given yourself plenty of time.   Remember, though, that embrocation products won't replace your warm-up. You'll still need to stretch, warm-up, and do your pre-ride physical routine.   Pro-tip: Apply CHAMOIS first, for the obvious reasons.   REALLY WORK IT IN I've heard some say they channel their inner massage therapist to really work the embrocation into the muscles and to thoroughly cover the skin. Roll down your socks, roll up the legs of your bibs, and really spend a few minutes working it in. While legs are the most common spot, you can apply to your lower back, shoulders, neck, and ankles.   When you use something that is also a recovery product, like MUSCLE, you'll get a double benefit from the massage in helping relieve any leftover pre-ride stiffness or soreness in your muscles. You can even reapply after your shower to give sore spots some relief.   Pro-tip: not all embrocation products are non-staining. So do a spot test before going all-in on your favorite kit.   AVOID YOUR EYES, MOUTH, AND OTHER SENSITIVE PARTS You know how much you hate it when you've been cutting peppers and then touch your eye or your lip? Well, that's what it'll feel like if you touch your eyes after applying embro. Wash your hands with warm soap and water, or use a wipe (although this may not get all of it off your hands). You can also use single-use gloves to apply and then toss. It's not an eco-friendly solution, but it can save you on a race when you don't have access to warm, soapy water.   Pro-tip: Fill your bottles, pack your phone, snacks, and other essentials before applying embrocation, just to be on the safe side.   KEEP YOUR LEGS WARM Embrocation creams don't actually add any extreme cold-weather protection to your legs. So if you're riding in chilly weather – especially if there's a breeze — you'll need to protect your legs from the elements. Try using knee warmers or even thermal tights (with our without embrocation). Be mindful of how cold it is and be aware of how it's affecting you.   Pro-tip: Use an embrocation even when the weather isn't cold. It is a great transition solution between cool weather when tights are too much, yet you want a little extra warmth before getting out for a ride.   SHAVE YOUR LEGS Embrocation products come in a variety of forms: oils, balms, salves, creams. bluerub's MUSCLE's is a lightweight cream that goes on smoothly. If your legs are hairy, it can get caught in the hair and not be thoroughly or evenly applied. The embrocation will wash off more fully and easily on smooth skin. Plus, you know you look great with shaved legs! (Try SHAVE for smooth, soft skin.)   Pro-tip: Don't apply on just-shaved legs. Give your pores a little breathing room before using warming oils like those in an embrocation product.   WASH BEFORE YOU SHOWER I love settling into a hot, steamy bath after being outside in the cold, wet weather. But hot water can reactivate the essential oils and give you the surprise of your life! Okay, not the surprise of your life, but you could definitely feel like jumping out of the water!   Use warm, soapy water to remove the embrocation before getting into a hot shower or bath. No-rise wipes can help but may not get all the oils off, so test it to be sure.   Pro-tip: Don't use the same washcloth to wash your face. Some people like using a loofah to help remove the embrocation. Just like your washcloth, keep it 'embrocation only' to avoid any accidental application to your face or nether parts.   So those are our pro-tips for using embrocation cream during cold weather rides.    Video Of The Week: Ironman Chattanooga 2021 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 Running for Real Podcast
Ryan Holiday: Running With Stoicism - R4R 268

The Running for Real Podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 1, 2021 77:42


There are four cardinal virtues recognized by almost all of the world's philosophies: courage, temperance, justice, and wisdom.  Ryan Holiday examines the first in his latest book, Courage is Calling: Fortune Favors the Brave.  His other books include the bestselling Stoic trilogy of The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is the Key.  He has a popular newsletter and podcast, The Daily Stoic, and on top of all that, he's a runner!  On today's episode we talk about philosophy, running, and how they intersect. Seneca talks about this word euthymia, which basically he defines as tranquility, but his definition is that it's when you have the sense of the path that you're on and you're not distracted by the paths that crisscross yours. Seneca was speaking about a basis of human life goals, but it can apply at any level, including being disciplined in your running.  Years ago Ryan was out on the track when someone came alongside him, “and now all of a sudden we're racing for no reason.  And I remember thinking, he has no idea how long I've been here; he has no idea how long I ran to get here. Why are we in this pointless competition with each other to prove nothing to nobody?”  Ideally, we should do whatever we're doing and not be concerned with what others are doing.  Ryan says that as a runner,  “just because someone else is there, just because someone comes up behind you, just because someone is twenty paces in front of you, to be able to tune that out and just focus on what you're trying to do, to me is the key part of the discipline of running.” The Stoics would say that anything you do out of compulsion is not good. I kind of see it as of all the things to be compulsive about, this is probably one of the least bad. Another discipline of running is consistency, which can slip over into compulsion.  Ryan acknowledges that he's streak-focused, but also sees it as a strength. For example, he says, “as a writer, the way you write books is by showing up every day and writing a little bit, and that adds up cumulatively to books and that's certainly how I, on a consistent basis, have published what I've been able to publish.”  He likes to do some form of strenuous exercise every day, but tries to balance out his compulsion to run by biking or swimming. What I love about running is that it's self contained and totally in your control.  Ryan believes that one of the things that contributes to burnout is working and “not feeling like you're making progress, not feeling like it's having an impact, not feeling like there's an end in sight, not feeling like you're progressing, not getting any sort of validation or win out of it.”  Running is the opposite of that because it's rewarding every time that you do it: “It's like you decided to run for four miles, you go run for four miles and then you come home and that's a win. And so what I love about running is that it's an easy win every day. Even the hard days are still easy compared to the rest of the world, which is so much more uncontrollable.” The courage to be oneself, to be difficult, to be unusual, to transgress norms or expectations, is just as scary and just as important in the long run as any form of physical courage might be. People tend to think of courage in terms of physical feats, but it's also “when you put yourself out there, when you do what needs to be done despite the fact that it's scary or hard or risky.”  Ryan tells a story about Margaret Thatcher, who went for her first job interview after university and saw a note that the interviewer had written, saying that she had far too much personality to work there.  That's true, Ryan says, she did have too much personality for the job, “but she was courageous enough not to become what she needed to be to work there.” There are two kinds of plagues. There's the one that destroys your life and then there's the one that destroys your character. That's one of Ryan's favorite quotes from Marcus Aurelius, who lived during a time of plague.  It was only during the current pandemic that Ryan realized that quotes like that one, which he had thought were purely figurative, were literal, as well.  Now, he says, it's “like, oh I see what you're saying. Yes, you can get Covid. Or you can get infected with something worse than Covid, which is whatever is making these people scream at grocery store employees or take horse dewormer, you know, whatever.  You can get infected with a different kind of disease, a different virus. It's actually worse because it makes you worse as a person. It might not have the same health concerns. But it's almost worse.” One of the things that I love about Stoicism is that it's a philosophy that articulates really clearly what our obligations are to other people.  For me, the idea that stoicism is this sort of insular personal philosophy really misses what was actually a philosophy designed to make one active in the world.

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!
