For the past 4 years Matt has put 'Completing a Half Ironman' on his list of biggest goals. But he's always put it off due to fear and procrastination. Until now, where, along with his friend Conor, he overcomes endless doubt, fear, uncertainty and lack of training to go compete head on in a race that once seemed impossible to him...all with only 30 days of training.
Special people to thank for making this episode happen:
Conor for always being down for the most insane challenges. Check out his DE-visions channel here: de-visions.com/pass/UC1E5Ti2P70zZxA4osS2MhiA

Rich also has a great podcast which you can find here: itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-rich-roll-podcast/id582272991?mt=2)
Gina Baski and the whole Trifit team for teaching Matt the essentials and allowing him to train in their incredible gym. Visit trifitla.com/ to train for your triathlon.

I finished the race yesterday in seven hours and three minutes. Thank you for inspiring me for chasing my dreams, I would’ve never done it without this video

  • I love this. I have missed out on so much of my life for fear that I would not excel. Passed up many opportunities because I did not think I would be "ready." If I wasn't 110% prepared, it wasn't happening. I have started saying "yes" to so many things since I began watching your videos. Giving myself the opportunity to fail has been the best decision I have ever made.

  • I am only 13, but this summer me and my mom are going all the way to Cali to climb mt Whitney. It's the highest mountain in the lower 48 states and about 15,000 feet tall. I was getting nervous about how strenuous the climb would be because I had to carry everything and risk altitude sickness because I live at sea level. However, this video lifted my spirits and I realized that if I put my mind to reaching the summit, than I could do it. Thanks!!

  • Having signed up for a half ironman this summer, this video is definitely inspiring. I've never done a triathlon before, not even any formally organized race. In addition, unknowingly I signed up for the half ironman with one of the hardest cycling courses. A number of years ago they held a full ironman at the same location and then never did it again due to the number of athletes who couldn't complete it. Despite all this, I'm determined to finish in the top 50%, and being 16 weeks out, while I have time for training, it's not exactly as much time as I'd like. I've also had this on my bucket list for several years, so here's to seeking discomfort and doing something that everyone else thinks I'm crazy for 👍

  • There was one Polish guy, Jerzy Górski, a heroine junkie, who started training, stopped doing drugs thing, and run the Iron man. I mean, he was a junkie, nearly dead, and his Iron man was twice as long, as normal. There is a movie "Breaking the Limits" by Pawlikowski, which is about him. If you want, you can watch. Have a nice day!

  • rewatching this.... and just now realizing I made a big YES. the yes of finally finding help, and saying yes to therapy. I haven't been feeling okay the last few months, I have been struggling with stuff in the last few years. But never really taken action with this. Being at the point of being the worst I have ever been, I finally said yes to seeking help.

    • I am really happy for you, it's amazing how these videos can bring people together. I hope you find what you need to achieve contentment. Reaching out is not an easy thing to do, I hope you realize just how brave you are, everything will fall into place now that you've taken this step. I'm a psychology student, and I've been putting off seeing a therapist for years. Last year was a rough one, and I had promised myself I'd set up an appointment. I did last week, so this really struck home. Good luck. 🤞🏼
