We both searched for a “special” topic for our 100th podcast, but in the end it came back to you. We wanted to talk about what all of this means and why we got started in the first place. Sure, there is some triathlon discussion, but we’ve always felt the mission is connection. It’s about what inspired all of you to get into this sport. It’s about the pain and struggle we all face. It’s the need to become better at triathlon and life. There is something about being a triathlete that helps us all understand we’re in this together, and being able to share and grow with people on the same journey is much more valuable than tricks to race faster. We’ve learned a lot along the way, and 99% of that is thanks to you.

You decide to change your life. You pick up triathlon and push yourself harder than you have in years. It's tough, and even tougher to keep going. You tell yourself (and others) that you're a different person, but that doesn't mean all things are "good." Then one day it really starts coming together and you begin to find the real you.

- Being present for workouts
- Working with "what you got" in Taper
- The key to bike comfort
- The biggest obstacle to your best performance
- Life and training guilt 
- Letting go of a fake persona
- Manageable Discomfort
- Maintaining VS. Getting Stale
- Choosing the Hilly Route Home
- How breathing affects your race
- What it takes to stay in aero
- Planning for pain
