For the past two months, I’ve been working with my former coach Vince Matteo, of Junk Miles, and one of his athletes Matt Momont on a podcast-germ of an idea, which has evolved into Yanking Chains, a podcast about multi-sport life. We are mixing a side of snark with discussions about all things multi-sport. Our goal is share information, have fun, and grow as students, ambassadors and coaches of the sport.
Now, we are far from professional podcasters, and we need to work on our intro and editing. But we decided we’d float a pilot of a first episode to see what you all think about the content and direction of the show. What follows below is the first of the episodes we’ll be releasing in the next week. Right now, these are available on YouTube (as we used Google Handouts On Air to record). We will be offering these on iTunes, once we’ve edited them, added an intro and otherwise cleaned them up.
I hope you enjoy Episode 1 – in which we discuss:
- Matt’s post race blues (or lack thereof) and Maria’s emotions
- Race reports: Ironman Wisconsin race reports from Matt & Vince (including the inside scoop on Vince’s romantic finish), Labor Pains (with, of course, more details on sharting)
- Training & Racing plans – and following them
For those of you who would prefer an MP3 of this podcast, you can find it by clicking this link for Yanking Chains Episode 1: Is that part of the plan?
Thanks for listening. Feedback is appreciated – either in the comments here, on YouTube, or contact me.
