    Triathlete Hour: How many distances can Leanda Cave win?

    Welcome to our last episode of Triathlete Hour before we take a late summer break—but don’t worry we’re planning to be back with new episodes at the end of the month…
    And for this episode we have an exciting guest: Leanda Cave, the four-time world champion — at almost every distance — talks to us about how even in retirement she’s considering one more distance world title, Ultraman. And she tells us how her first Ultraman went two weeks ago.
    We also talk about how she got started in the sport, how she made a living and found her way, and what it was like becoming the first athlete to win the 70.3 and Ironman world titles in the same year!

    Triathlete Hour: Siri Lindley Wants You to Live Your Absolute Best Life

    This week we have a deep and thought-provoking episode with Siri Lindley. The world champion talks to us about how to create the life you want for yourself and how to chase dreams that seem impossible, even how to turn something like living through leukemia into a positive in your life.
    First, before all that, some quick news: Today is our host, Kelly O'Mara's, last day at Triathlete. So we’ll have one more short episode for you next week and then we’ll be taking a break in August, but don’t worry we hope to be back with some Triathlete Hour episodes after that break
    And to get us started Sid joins us for one more Sid Talks, where we dissect all things Commonwealth Games, two-day Kona, and all the women’s sports news.

    Triathlete Hour: We've Been Approaching Mental Health In Tri All Wrong

    Triathlete Hour: We've Been Approaching Mental Health In Tri All Wrong

    Welcome to the Triathlete Hour. This week’s episode is one I think will hit home for a lot of triathletes. We’re talking to mental health researcher and ultra runner and triathlete herself, Jill Colangelo.
    Jill started studying the link between mental health and endurance sports after she found herself overtrained, with no answers for what drives a regular athlete to train themselves to that point. What she found may sound familiar to many of you.
    And now, more recently, she’s been talking to other triathletes who have been diagnosed with ADHD or autism, and the overlapping symptoms of both, and trying to understand why there is so much overlap with triathlon and what triathlon can do to be more welcoming to neurodiverse athletes.
    It’s a fascinating episode, with lots of good information. But first Sid & I preview the PTO’s Canada Open this week and take bets on who will make it with all of their equipment intact. (One quick note: After we recorded it was announced that Olympic gold medalist Alistair Brownlee would be joining the start list.) We’ll have all the previews later this week, but you can see all the action live on Outside Watch.
    Read some of Jill's articles here:

    Losing Focus? Feeling Grumpy? You Might Be Overtrained

    What's It Like to Be A Triathlete with Autism Spectrum Disorder or ADHD?


    Jill Colangelo is a writer and researcher of mental health and ultra endurance sport. She has a BA and ALM in psychology and is a former triathlete and ultramarathoner.

    Triathlete Hour Podcast: Jackie Hering's found the best phase of her tri career

    Triathlete Hour Podcast: Jackie Hering's found the best phase of her tri career

    This week’s episode is a chat with Jackie Hering, the 70.3 North American champ, has been on a roll lately—and she says the turning point actually came doing Zwift races during the early parts of the pandemic.
    Jackie shares how she thinks of her 11-year career in different parts, how one of those parts was changing her training and balance after having two kids, and how she has no interest in doing an Ironman again. Plus, as the snowshoe person of the year, she’s well equipped to give us all the details on how to snowshoe.

Who are you?

Good podcast, but the host needs to introduce (name is enough) at the beginning of EVERY episode. Basic podcasting 101.

Rude Host

Please do not interrupt or cut off guests of the show while they’re speaking, A good host does not favor some guests over others, Try to provide more valuable input other than “ok” or “hmm”, sometimes the host is wrong but still tries to prove her point (please stop)… just some things I noticed.

Triathlon

Great content and great host. Can we just stick to triathlon? Is it necessary to be “woke” here too?
