Today we are grateful to welcome back to the show one of our favorite power couples, Eric Lagerstrom and Paula Findlay. We hosted these guys individually on the YTP back in 2017 and 2018, and they joined us for a mini-podcast in January of this year, which is available on our youtube channel.
When we interviewed Eric in 2017, he told us that his mission was to leave the triathlon sport better than he found it. Unbeknownst to Eric at the time, he had already planted the seeds for That Triathlon Life. Their TTL weekly videos have been a light for so many Sunday mornings this year, and no surprise to us, Eric continues to raise the bar for what so many triathletes are just now catching onto, that triathlon life is more than swim, bike, and run. They also welcomed a beautiful 4-legged baby boy into their lives this year. As most of us recently witnessed, they are closing off 2020 on a celebratory note with Paula’s historic performance at Challenge Daytona.
In this episode, we discuss:
- the initial intent for That Triathlon Life
- becoming open to receiving from others
- being nobodies in Portland and superstars in Tucson
- the turnover cycle of getting better
- Challenge Daytona
- biggest gifts of 2020
- shoutouts of gratitude
