Show Finally Made Podcasts Make Sense to me!
I’ve been a swimmer/water polo player my whole life. Been doing the Tri life for a decade and just discovered SwimRun. Looked up swim run online, found the Boyz and have been listening ever since. So much information, knowledge, humor, and humility. Just a great listen. Friends have tried to get me to listen to pods for years and I didn’t get it. I do now! Wait for it every week. Keep it up boyz. Friend and I are doing our first on Mackinac Island this weekend! Swim > Run
So helpful for us first timers!
I love listening to you both! I’ve learned so much in the past four months as I prepared for my first SwimRun on Mackinac Island. I’m a solo racer and had a coach to develop training plans but pretty much got all my race gear and strategy info from listening to your podcasts. My race on Mackinac was epic and I’m hooked. Thank you for all you do for the sport. I hope to see you on a course one of these days.
This podcast was extremely helpful as I prepared for a recent swim run. You can tell the hosts love swim run and live talking about it. There is no better resource for novices and pros. Keep up the good work.
