212 - IRONMAN© 70.3 Indian Wells – Ben Miller

Oh boy.  Get ready for some good laughs as we poke fun at each other in this episode.  Ben is a great friend of mine who loves the sport of triathlon, riding his bike, and has an amazing wife Lisa who also does triathlons.  Ben and I talk about his race and a new nutrition company he is using for the run.  We talk about his led up to this race and something very emotional that he and a group that I was fortunate enough to be a part of in Kona that made a certain professional triathlete and his wife breakdown into tears.  The course here at Indian Wells was adjusted just moments before the race weekend truly began.  This adjustment allowed for a better bike course and we discuss how this impacted his mindset. Thank you Ben for spending time with me, it was a joy, pleasure, and honor to have you back on the show buddy.  All the best going into Oceanside and Santa Rosa.
