We opened the show with a recap of our FitBloggin experience. It was awesome. Big shout out to Roni Noone and all the other fitbloggers we got to hang out with. Learned a lot about blogging watched a lot of people do fitness stuff. And had an all around great time. We were honored to be the keynote speakers this year and look forward to doing more stuff (maybe a live remote broadcast) with them next year.
Our first guest was someone we met at FitBloggin No Meat Athlete Matt Frazier. He is a vegan ultramarathon runner.Anyone who can shave over 100 minutes from his marathon time is a beast and this guy can do it without eating meat. That Scott Pilgrim movie was right those vegans are like superheroes. He’s got a new book coming out soon that shows you how to train for a half marathon and his first book helps vegetarians train for marathons.
Next up we had on Seth Goldman TeaEO of Honest Tea Dr Fitness’ new favorite beverage the half tea half lemonade lightly sweetened drink. Honest Tea wins awards for being green, for being healthy, for being organic and fair trade. But it is also delicious. If you are having a hard time finding it – it’s probably because Dr Fitness buys them all whenever he finds them. Honest Tea can be found in more and more stores but if you can’t find them near you Seth says to talk to the store manager and ask for it.
We closed the show with Shelley Woodworth from the Vail Valley Foundation and the Teva Mountain Games Vail which is happeneing June 2-5. This event is cool because it pits amateurs with pros going head to head in biking, running, white water and bouldering events. Throw in some free concerts, a little art and a bunch of free gear and no wonder more than 40,000 people will be there this year.
