045: Luis Alvarez 137 Ironman Triathlon Finishes and Counting

11/20/2016
More
Luis Alvarez is a very accomplished Ironman athlete. His story starts like so many with the realization that he was a little overweight and the desire to get back into shape. But where it went from there I don't think even he expected this. He has raced every single Ironman Triathlon course that has ever been. That is 137 Ironman Triathlons. This includes 15 trips to Ironman Kona in Hawaii and in fact when he started to race Ironman triathlon he was able to secure Kona as his first...

I met Susan in 2012 in Cozumel Mexico. I was there to cheer for my friends and she was there to race. Susan is one of the very first people I approached to be on the Mile after Mile Podcast but to be honest she was too busy racing that she postponed for 43 weeks (but who's counting). In fact, to finally get this interview I had to meet her in person. She came in to race Miami Man our local 70.3 distance event and she also took the time to speak to my triathlon club and grant me this...

This is a very quick show notes because I have hurricane Matthew breathing down my neck and I'll probably lose power between now and Monday.

Luke Tyburski and the Ultimate Triathlon

10/3/2016
More
If you listen to podcasts on Ironman and endurance events you may have heard of the Ultimate Triathlon. Luke has given a lot of interviews on his journey including a terrific pair of interviews that you can find at www.zentriathlon.com . That being said this is the kind of story that I absolutely love because it is something that if you didn't know he'd already done it you would say that what he did was impossible. But he did it. Luke Tyburski put together the idea of the Ultimate...

039: Chris Charres journey to the Ironman Lake Placid finish

9/26/2016
More
I met Chris Charres at a training camp for Ironman Lake Placid for 2015 and we have stayed in touch over the years. I wanted to share his story to the finish line of Ironman Lake Placid because it's a good one that I think many people can identify with in their own journeys. Chris' Ironman journey actually started in 2010 when he and his then girlfriend broke up with him. He started with a 5k and stepped up from there to a marathon. Chris is active with a triathlon group called the...

9/19/2016
More
This is the second Mile after Mile Podcast where I interview two separate folks but the first time I interview two people each about a separate event. In this podcast I interview Warren Pole about his journey to the UTMB finish line. The UTMB is an ultra trail race in Europe that is truly epic. Warren signed up for the 100 miler on a whim and it didn't go well at all. So he went back to the drawing board and tried again. It took him 2 tries and a few years to make this happen. I then...

8/7/2016

Before he could become an Ironman Steve Ashton needed to lose some weight and stop smoking. He shares his story with me. At the beginning it isn't a story about training for Ironman merely a need to live a healthier life. Steve underwent Gastric Sleeve surgery and lost 154 pounds (or in his words 11 stone). But then 5 years ago his dream to be an Ironman was born when he watched his son complete the race. Bolton is known as a tough course with a hard and technical bike course plus the...

Beth French and I chat about her swim across the English Channel in July 2012. Growing up in England she says she's known about swimmers crossing the English Channel. Swimming across large bodies of water isn't a foregone conclusion for Beth - as a child she had glandular fever. In the states we call this Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Beth calls the English Channel the Everest of Open Water Swims. We talk a lot about the logistics of how you even schedule an English Channel Swim. We talk...

SOS stands for Survival of the Shawangunks which Billy tells me are called "the gunks." The S.O.S. Triathlon is a special race in upstate New York with a small but extremely loyal following. After hearing Billy describe the race I think for good reason. Billy blogs at Race Reports from an Unconventional Endurance Athlete. Like so many of us Billy started his road to endurance sports with the goal to lose a few pounds. Before the interview started Billy and I tried to look up how to...
