I'm Growing Bolder

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 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.

Congrats on this speaking opportunity! I was recently asked to write a piece about tris for an online fitness magazine and am also unsure about being the right person to "carry the mantle" too. Thanks for giving me a push to do it.

Great interview 'Boomer, but you play it off like you are some endurance newby! Give yourself some credit man.

You've been tearing up courses long before everyone knew what a sub-prime mortgage was.


If you're the Evangelist, we're a bunch of disciples!

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear.
