In this episode we hear from Kim Nicholsen. Kim is a husband (in spirit), father, grandfather and Ironman Finisher. Kim lives in Denmark and finished Ironman Copenhagen in 2014. He grew up playing soccer and tennis.

Before getting into triathlon talk, Kim provides some insight into how the current war in Ukraine is affecting his area. While they are not experiencing any direct military movement, they have received a few refugees. He says the biggest impact is in the price of petrol.

Because of the time difference between Texas and Denmark, we recorded this episode at 1:00am local time the night after several big triathlon events. Both the Ironman European Championships and the Sub-7/Sub-8 Project had just taken place in Germany, so we took a few minutes to discuss.

We question the fairness of how one performance can be considered for World Record qualification and another is not. World Record aside, we agree that everyone involved had an impressive performance.

Speaking of impressive, Kim has worked out every day since August 18, 2019. At the time of the recoding, he had a 1023-day streak of consecutive workouts. Kim shares that he does more than just swim, bike and run. To stay healthy, he has incorporated core workouts with yoga and focused stretching.

Social Media has come under a lot of scrutiny, but we spend some time talking about the good things it provides. Kim shares his opinion of the impact of his Ironman Family. And because he was following me in Chattanooga, I acknowledge that I outsmarted myself by talking it too conservative on the bike.

Kim shares how his race went when he completed Ironman Copenhagen. He came in just over the 11-hour mark. His daughter, who was also racing that day, won her Age Group and qualified for Kona.

I ask Kim about a statement in his Instagram profile, and we get into a deep conversation about death and limiting fears.

We talk about the importance of getting real medical advice versus self-diagnosing and I share how I missed out in being in another Triathlete's YouTube video while in Chattanooga.

Kim shares his weekly workout schedule, and we discuss the advantages of both road and TT bikes.
