    ZenTri 679 - Best Zen Tech of 2019 to 2020

    ZenTri 679 - Best Zen Tech of 2019 to 2020

    From optical heart rate monitors to electronic shifting, I list off the best Zen Tech of 2019.

    "Zen Tech" is gear or methods that make your training and racing easier by making it simpler. I look for items that remove steps or reduce time or maintenance so you can spend more time enjoying life and less time fiddling with settings and cleaning up.

My first outdoor tri this July 14th in Flintstone, MD. XTERRA

Hi Tri Team!!

I am super pumped to be doing my first outdoor triathlon. It is a pleasure to listen to your podcast today to get more enriched with the motivation of the 12-year-old swimmer. I personally was a competitive swimmer growing up since I was six years old. Swimming was my life. It is so enriching to have such a part of my daily practice as a child, swimming got hours, back into my truest life as an adult. If you’re interested to follow more about me or my training, follow me on Instagram @nicoles_art_creations.

I hope all is well. Happy Zen. Happy outdoors to you and yours!!

High 5,

Struggle

When I found this podcast I was struggling with most everything, including triathlon. It helped me find peace again in what I loved. I really miss this, and I also really liked the podcasts that I listened to.
