Triathlon is a lifestyle. The way we train, the way we eat, the decisions we make and the commitment to being healthy humans is encompassed in that lifestyle.

Today we sit down and discuss what it takes to create a lifestyle that integrates with your family, and how it to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone. 

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • Creating the right environment
  • Meshing the lifestyle with kids
  • Leading by example, always
  • Sharing the experience with your family (even your dog)
  • Finding the balance
  • What underpins the entire process 
  • Adaptability & flexibility
  • Longevity
  • Being world class
  • "Is this the best you got?"
