ABOUT THE EPISODE

The Being Dad Show is taking a different direction. We welcome co-host Steve Hamlin to the show. This episode is an introduction to Steve, an update on the show status, and some things that you can plan on expecting from The Being Dad show going forward.

Steve has created "Endurance Path" to share his experiences, knowledge, and his future "path" down the road of endurance mountain biking, training, and much more. He also has created "Outdoor Family Life" as reference tool for active families, as well as a place to share some stories of his own experiences.

Listen in to learn about Steve and get a feel for what he and Ben have in store for The Being Dad Show. We're excited to have a more regular show with some great content.

We want to hear from all of you. Send us an email with your first name, your kids' ages, what you like to do with them, and where you are from and we'll share them on the air in the next episode. We'd like everyone to know who makes up our community and listeners.

The Being Dad Show is back. In this episode, Ben gives an update of what's going on with the show, then interviews Daniel Byrd, who is the Program Director of Kids on Bikes in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They discuss their current lives as a dad, including the levels of raising their voices and what normal is. Daniel is a father of two young twin boys and shares his stories about what it's like. 

ABOUT KIDS ON BIKES:

"Kids on Bikes mission is to inspire and empower all kids to lead healthy, active and happy lives through biking.

The freedom, joy, health and friendship that come from exploring your neighborhood by bike is one many of us cherish.   In addition there are tremendous health benefits from riding your bike everyday.  We want to make biking possible for kids from all walks of life, regardless of income.  We believe that by transforming communities, one neighborhood at a time, we can make an incredible impact in the lives of children.  Our top three priorities that will allow all children to own and ride a bike are to provide access to rideable bikes, to empower children in bike safety and to encourage kids and families to ride more frequently through organized events.

Make a decision to help. We are offering a simple solution to bring the joy, health, freedom and confidence that comes from riding a bike.  For $300 (or $25 per month), you can sponsor a child to go through the Let’s Pedal earn-a-bike program where they participate in 10 weeks of hands on bike riding and at the end earn a new bike, helmet, lock and pump."

I get you up to date on a few items, then share thoughts about my first month being officially coached by Drew Edsall, and finish up with an interview with Travis Macy. Travis is a very accomplished athlete with many top finishes in several disciplines, including adventure racing, trail running, mountain biking, and snowshoeing. He's a husband, father, teacher, and author and is filled with perspective on bridging the gap between high level competition and raising small children. We discuss his new book, The Ultra Mindset, as well as raising kids and keeping life, training, and racing in balance.

The Ultra Mindset:

An Endurance Champion's 8 Core Principles for Success in Business, Sports, and Life

 

Travis Macy summited glacial peaks in the French Alps, rapelled into cavernous limestone caves in China, and ran through parched deserts in Utah.  Most famously, he won the Leadman, a high-altitude combination trail running marathon, 50-mile mountain biking race, 100-mile mountain biking race, 10K run, and 100-mile trail run.  Macy accomplished it without exceptional strength, speed, flexibility, high tech performance labs, or performance-enhancing drugs.  His secret?  A precise and particular outlook he calls the “Ultra Mindset,” principles for daily life which are neither mysterious nor the sole province of ascetics or elite athletes: embrace fear, rewrite stories we tell ourselves, and master the art of seeking help, among others.  By applying the Ultra Mindset principles to other areas of life, anyone can find success that otherwise would have been impossible.

It's been a while and Ben catches up on what's been happening lately, talks about an upcoming coaching project with Coach Drew Edsall, and then chats with Andy Magness, who is the director of ENDracing in North Dakota and author of Ultra Mental. The discussion with Andy is filled with great insight, ideas, and thoughts about kids, endurance training, and overall living a mindful life.

About Ultra Mental:

 

"This book is not intended to replace training that works. It is not designed to argue that tried and true methods of preparing for endurance events should be abandoned. It does not describe a shortcut to fitness, nor does it suggest an easy route to success in ultra-endurance efforts. What it does do is build a case for an idea that application of consistent high intensity training can provide a level of fitness from which a mentally tough athlete can approach, succeed at, and enjoy endurance sports..."
