    Episode 22: Arizona Training Camp Bonus Episode

    Episode 22: Arizona Training Camp Bonus Episode

    As I mentioned in Episode 21 with Parker Spencer and Project Podium, I was headed to Tucson, Arizona with Eli Hoppenfeld, Mac Howie and Ethan Nordman to train with Kira Stanley and our coach Mandy Stanley. Since Kira was my first official interview on the podcast, we thought it would be fun to record a group interview and talk a little bit about our week together. Since everyone has a lot of driving to do on their way to and from Pleasant Prairie, maybe this will help pass the time. Hope to see you this weekend. Enjoy!

    Episode 21: Parker Spencer with Project Podium and Elite Triathlete Nathan Cohen

    Welcome to Episode 21 of the U23 Triathlon podcast. School is finally over so hopefully we can get more episodes out every couple of weeks. We actually recorded this interview with Project Podium’s Parker Spencer awhile ago but wanted to tack on another interview with Elite Nathan Cohen of Full Send Triathlon. Nathan recently accepted his elite license and wanted to share some advice for younger athletes so we were able to meet up with him in Richmond for an interview.

    I am headed to Arizona tomorrow for a training camp with Eli Hoppenfeld, Ethan Nordman, Mac Howie, Kira Stanley, and my coach, Mandy Stanley but then am headed to Pleasant Prairie the following week. I’ll be posting to the story while we are in Arizona so be on the lookout for that.

    Before we start our interview, I wanted to review the results from Richmond:
    - The Junior Elite female podium was Lucy Westlake, Makenna Gates and Hope Frost.
    - The Junior Elite male podium was Nick Holmes, Davis Bove and Will Locascio.
    - The Youth Elite female podium was Clara-James Heer, Faith Dasso and Jenna Buchanan.
    - The Youth Elite male podium was Lawson McCleod, Noah Peterson and Eli Derr.
    - The CAMTRI Sprint American Cup male podium was Martin Sobey, Darr Smith and Charles Paquet.
    - The CAMTRI Sprint American Cup female podium was Marissa frante, Erin Edminster and Anabel Knoll

Outstanding resource for Youth and Junior Racing athletes...not just Draft Legal. Plenty on wisdom in these episodes, pay attention and you just might pick up a few TRIcks!
