I've never considered myself an evangelist. Not because I didn't want to be for those few things I truly love, but more because I didn't think anyone would want me to carry the mantle. That was until after much encouragement from athletic brethren in the sweaty pews of sport did I begin writing, appearing on podcasts, and began my own show about triathlon. Slowly an audience (I prefer call you all, the readers and listeners, friends, though) developed and I had a voice and a medium for a message. Since actively Twittering about the life of this once sedentary altruist, more attention as to the whys and wherefores of swim-bike-run continues to grow. But still, never believing my own press, did I believe anything I had to say would go much beyond my family and a handful of friends.
That's why I was surprised when, a couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by the good folks at GrowingBolder.com and invited to be interviewed on their talk radio show which appears on Central Florida's #1 AM station, WFLA, and in South Florida on station, WBZT. They wanted to talk about how triathon changed my life and speak to their listeners about the beneifts of fitness. Evangelist or not, I felt the time was right to spread the good word on our wonderful sport and I took them up on their offer.
Listen here as I speak with the entertaining hosts of the show, Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer, about the benefits of fitness and and running out of a "burning house" to a healthy lifestyle.
