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.

Thanks

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.
