In this episode, we have a really great conversation with Tom Barbieri about the lifestyles of ultra and triathlon athletes. We all agree that it takes a village to be able to achieve the healthy and active life you desire. Support and community comes in so many different forms. Tom breaks down some of the key terms he writes about on his Tioga Wellness website. Adam and Tom share their ultra and IronMan experiences and really give us insight into the mindsets needed and emotions felt while achieving these huge accomplishments. They tackle the two most commonly asked questions: Why would you do that and what do you eat?


In this episode we discuss:

  • Our quote of the day: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing what’s impossible.” ~ Francis of Assisi
  • Tom defines “avid age-group athlete” and “weekend warrior”
  • Using experiences and biofeedback
  • Sustainable fitness
  • Tom and Adam share their triathlon and ultra experiences
  • The feeling of trail running
  • Fuelling for long runs and races
  • Having support from family on race day and during training
  • Heidi’s Question: “Hey Plant Trainers, I use hemp hearts in my smoothies. What else can I use them for?”
