Dan Kimball has a passion for endurance events. We chat on this podcast about how he just finished an amazing event called UltraTri Sweden. www.ultratri.se
We talk about how Dan got his start in endurance sports and what the road he travelled all the way to UltraTri which I should mention he won.
He found OtillO through a book that listed the top endurance races in the world, which lead him to Rockman and back to OtillO which he raced with Marcus Barton who told their OtillO story earlier on the podcast. He has a friend in Norway who partners with him on some of these events named Bjorn Norman.
Dan is a part of the Timex Factory Team and has been lucky enough to race on Team USA several times.
Dan works full time and has a busy family life and we talk about how he manages to keep it all together while training for endurance events.
We talk about coaching and resources.
Dan says he's fascinated with becoming a swimmer and what is his favorite of the 3 sports right now. Dan trains with Rock Hill Masters in South Carolina and trains with Cheryl Reinke (and he says great things about her in the interview).
UltraTri is unique. A very small race and Dan was one of 7 participants this year. We talk about how you get into such a race and what the course was.
This is a 3-day race that goes across all of Sweden. The first day is a Swim and Bike. Day 2 is all Biking and Day 3 is Run - Swim - Run. The total distances are 12k of swimming, 520 km of biking and 93km of running.
We talk about the course and nutrition and challenges and support throughout the three days.
Dan won this year's UltraTri in Sweden. This is a great story.
Thank you Dan for being a guest on the Mile after Mile Podcast. I am sure the listeners will agree with me when I say I can't wait to see what you do next.
