OK people, we went ahead and actually did it. We started a podcast.
In the debut episode of the Ironman: Year One podcast, I team up with John Harris of Fat Slow Triathlete. Both of us are scheduled to do a full Ironman in late 2014. This will be a countdown of sorts, as well as a discussion of life as a Back-of-the-Pack triathlete, and especially as larger triathletes with weight issues. We love 80s pop culture references, we’re unabashed Angriest Trainer fanboys, and we aren’t afraid of the word FAT.
This isn’t the show for hardcore training, or making your way to the pointy end of the speed spectrum. It is a show for anyone who is interested in hearing about what it’s like to be one of those people who comes in last, or who decides it time for a major life change, or who just enjoy the ever-growing world of endurance and nutrition podcasting.

Show notes for Episode 1…..
Clearly we are Vinnie and Anna fanboys. Our taste in 80s movies is lining up well. We have similar stories of getting into endurance sports. We discuss the whole idea of using the word FAT publicly. We both hate skinny people. (OK not really, but in certain circumstances……)
As of the posting of this file on the site, I have discovered that to get an RSS feed, the next step before putting this on iTunes, I need to migrate my whole site from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. I’ll get that done soon. For now, we wanted to get this podcast out in this format for you “beta-testers.” So here it is! We’ll hopefully be up and running with a proper podcasting feed ASAP. Until then, you’re in the cool kids club of early adopters.
