In this episode, we hear from 2X Ironman Finisher, Jon Welty. Jon is married, recently transitioned from being a collegiate cross-country and track and field coach to a corporate recruiter and is currently training for Ironman Florida. Jon lives in St. Louis, MO with his wife and since our recording have celebrated their 2nd wedding anniversary.

Jon provides some details about his athletic background starting in high school; he played football, basketball and ran track. He explains that he discovered that his natural ability was running and when it came time to decide where to continue his education, he choose Manmouth College for a few reasons.

Jon reveals that his inspiration for looking at the sport of triathlon stems from a childhood memory. We talk about how he followed the “traditional” path from Sprint distance to full Ironman and Jon points out another reason I should race a local Olympic distance race this summer.

When talking about his experiences at Ironman Boulder and Ironman Couer d’Alene, Jon admits that he learned lot from both races. He talks about the change in his nutrition plan. Taking in what he can by himself, Jon has decided to use services of a coach while training for his next race.

Jon provides a perfect analogy of how a coach can help you correct the things we can’t see. We talk about what made he choose Couer d’Alene as his 2nd race. He also talks us through what drew his to choose Ironman Florida as his next race. We talk about some of the things that Jon’s coach has him focused on during this time.

We talk about Jon’s thoughts on his potential if all things go well. We discuss what at the time of the recording was the upcoming Sub 7-hour project and I acknowledge a previous guest’s accomplishment that I didn’t fully appreciate at the time of the original recording.

Jon shares some fantastic final thoughts, and we agree that it’s ok to not be ok sometimes.
