    Road to Roth Felix Walchshöfer

    Road to Roth Felix Walchshöfer

    In Episode 1 of Inside Tri Show’s Road to Roth series with lifejacketskin.com, we speak to Race Director Felix Walchshöfer, about what makes Challenge Roth one of the biggest, most popular and well-supported triathlons in the World.
    Roth has been part of Felix's life since he was first a volunteer at the age of 4. His late father Herbert was brave enough to say 'No' to Ironman’s demands and remain independent and helped to grow Challenge Roth into what it is today. His Mum Alice and sister Catherine are still very much part of the organising team. You always hear what a nice guy Felix is, and when you listen to this interview, you'll understand why.

    Chrissie Wellington: Navigating change

    Chrissie Wellington: Navigating change

    Chrissie Wellington is a four time Ironman World Champion. She won all 13 of the 13 Ironman races she entered and set an incredible World Record, which stood for 12 years until it was beaten by Daniela Ryf. Since retiring, Chrissie has become a Mum and continued to inspire people around the World by dedicating herself to improve people's health and wellbeing through Parkrun.
    You'll hear:
    07:00 We talk about the pie of life, taking different paths in life, choice and compromise
    10:00 Listening to your gut to explore new things
    13:00 What does Chrissie mean by her book title 'A Life Without Limits'?
    19:00 Does Chrissie remember the first time we met? Oh there are some good stories in this section!!!
    34:00 Why Chrissie enjoyed doing endurance challenges when she retired from professional sport, to avoid having an outcome goal.
    38:00 The satisfaction of helping others, which can be more enjoyable than going for a certain time yourself. And why Chrissie took so much from being part of a team to help Sam Perkins cross the finish line in a marathon.
    43:00 The bigger picture of being able to inspire others through sport. 'We can each pay it forward and that's the beauty to me of sport, much less about your own achievement. There's a deep satisfaction of achieving your goal, but there is so much more to it."
    47:00 Why it can be hard to step away when you have a platform and you are good at something.
    58:00 Knowing that there's life beyond triathlon for professional sports people and that your self worth is more spacious than you as swim bike run.
    1.00:00 What was it like seeing Daniela Ryf breaking Chrissie's World Record?
    1:06:00 Out of change comes opportunity.

    A note from Helen
    This is the last episode of the Inside Tri Show. This conversation with Chrissie sums up so much of why I am stopping. I have done more than I thought possible and I am signing off with a very happy heart. This podcast would never have got to twenty two episodes, let alone two episodes, if it wasn't for you listening and supporting me and for my guests taking the time to talk to me.
    I am so grateful for the friendships the podcast has brought me, the connections I have made and the life lessons I have learnt. It's been an absolute pleasure and I hope it will continue to inspire people in the world of endurance sports. Thank you xx
