Podium Worthy Perspective

The photo above is brought to you by Evotri teammate, Bolder, who just raced the Napa Valley Half Ironman this past weekend in fine "sub-fun" fashion.

Taking in the sights, visiting wineries and truly making the experience of his race the focus of his trip rather than the splits is a perfect example of his new philosophy this year towards training and racing. Together with his Vision Quest Coach, Karyn, the two are going to see if Bolder's "minimum training for the maximum results" philosophy will carry him through the quickly approaching Ironman CdA race next month.

It seems to be working out quite well so far. A few days before the Napa Valley race, Bolder had this to say about slowing down and smelling the roses:

"At my previous training levels, I would race at 20mph, and run at sub-10. From a swimming perspective, I've always been used to getting lapped. But now, I get excited when I ride above 20mph and below 10... I'm living the life I've always wanted to live."
We'd call that podium worthy perspective for sure. Congrats to our fellow teammate on a great race (and here's wishing him a Happy Birthday today too!). For more, be sure to check out Bolder's recap.
