Sometimes it takes a while, sometimes years, to discover something that was probably evident from the start. John talks about some recent revelations in his constant weight loss battle. Does it really mean anything, in the long run, is another discussion, but he may be on to something?
A discussion about Zone 2 training and dietbet is also in the show, and a random "The Office" memory near the end.
Now ... GO TRAIN!!!

So many magazines and resources for runner, triathletes, and cyclist, and Rob believes in one that still remains worth the money
May 18, 2018
Rob is back again with some inside information about getting your information to Dietbet, and he takes the initiative in getting some information out about our feelings on some recent feedback concerning show content.

Rob on maintenance and a return to the pool and triathlon for a few weeks
May 14, 2018
Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. we had a slight snafu where after the show John lost the file by hitting the wrong button, and the back up on Rob's end only has me and Vinnie. So, when listening you may notice Vinnie or me responding to something where Rob would have been talking. I listened through and the overall gist of the show is still intact so, we apologize, but the show is still worth a listen.
Make sure to show your support for the film by going to Vinnie's INDIEGOGO page or directly to fatdocumentary.com

SUGAR is one of the ongoing themes in this show through all the incarnations, and probably one of the most divisive regardless of what the current studies and science is showing. So let's break it down a bit. At my own peril.
May 10, 2018
Rob enters the Sprint fray with a short discussion about DietBet and the documentary "The Magic Pill". Plus, an appearance by the little guy on the run with Dad.
May 9, 2018
A new feature of the show. Both John and Rob will be recording "sprints" each week; short episodes either alone or with a guest of not more than 15 minutes each.
John is first on the block
May 7, 2018
The discussion today is about Rob's Pittsburgh Marathon experience and we are joined by Super Fan and Group Mainstay Karen Clarke who also completed the same race with her husband and got to hang out with Rob before the race. Some great discussion on training, race strategy, and port-a-potties.
Also, as promised in Episode 118, Vinnie Tortorich announced his next project, the documentary "Fat". To support the project go to http://fatdocumentary.com and pledge some money, get your name in the film credits, and help get the truth out there.

The story of this year's St. Anthony's Triathlon unfolds as we go through John's race day, the training leading up to it, and some thoughts on the way we train, some methods that seemed to work, and juggling life's "glass balls". The show ends with some discussion about Rob's upcoming marathon this weekend and the race plan leading in. Next week we will see how it all works out.

You have three brains; your ancient Chimp brain (keeps you alive), your modern Professor brain (navigates the civilized world), and your Computer brain (accesses memories and runs your habits, both good and bad. They fight for control all the time; you get crazy nervous before a race, you choke under pressure, you quit when the going gets tough, you make dumb mistakes, you worry about how you look. Feeling unworthy of being called an athlete (runner, triathlete, cyclist) is referred to as cognitive distortion, but can also work both ways. Being overconfident can be as damaging as being under confident. How does each happen?
Drawing from the book "The Brave Athlete" by Dr. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson (https://www.velopress.com/books/the-brave-athlete/), a book recently recommended to John by Beth Shaw after reading of his ongoing anxiety about the open water swim, the guys talk about these and some of the points made in the book.
Well, at least the first 1/3 of the book.

Vinnie Tortorich is an author, radio and podcast host, fitness trainer, model, and international motivational speaker based in Beverly Hills, California. He is well known among most of the teamE4E listeners, as his influence brought Andrew and John together back in 2013 to start this podcast journey, and with this appearance has now, along with Anna Vocino and Jennifer Cultrera, been on every version of the show.
Vinnie is the author of the successful book "Fitness Confidential" and hosts the hugely popular Vinnie Tortorich podcast.
Check out his site at http://vinnietortorich.com. He announces the "secret" that we refer to at the end of the show posted today.
But you're getting nothing out of us yet
April 9, 2018
Rob is on his own for this show (for a good reason that will become apparent, so he gives us an update on his recent runs, his bout with illness and having to get through that while training, and motivation through using "diet bet".
He also discusses some pre-Pittsburgh planning and trying to approximate the race course (a subject that will be covered more in-depth in another upcoming show).
April 2, 2018
It is truly an honor when we get to have the best podcast voice in radio (ask Vinnie Tortorich) join us for a show. Anna is an actor, comic, voice overer, podcaster, and cookbooker. Her recent book, "Eat Happy", has been a favorite of ours and of others in the group, so make sure you head over to Amazon and pick up a copy.
As is normal with Anna we do have to warn you of some language throughout the show. Nothing earth shattering but young ears may not be appropriate.
The discussion begins with Anna's journey, her book, her podcasting with Vinnie, and her career as a comedian.
LOADS of good information in the show everyone!

This show has been in the hopper for a few weeks and is finally ready for you, our loyal listeners, to hear first hand.
Rob sits down with the race director of the Dam Tri, Kristoph Kocan, to discuss the history of the race and what the race entails, then Rob and Kristoph go through the race turn by turn, offering a first-hand glimpse into what John and Rob will be facing in June 2018.
Come join us for the race and meet the guys at the finish line. Even if triathlons are not your thing and you're in the area, put on some teamE4E gear and come out to support the guys!
The race info, course maps, etc. can be found at www.thedamtri.com. Let them know where you heard about them!!
March 19, 2018
Two races to talk about in this show; Rob's NYC Half Marathon and John's Starkey stomp 10K Trail Race, with a bonus feature of Rob's on the spot reporting during the actual race.
March 12, 2018
A lot of discussions this week around the problems of being an adult when all you want to do is ride!
Cue the Wild Hogs movie here
Also, getting past the man attitude of going to a doctor when things hurt, the problems around racing at different destinations and when to draw the line, and choosing an appropriate race distance to meet your specific goals vs your ego.
March 5, 2018
For something different this week John and Rob are joined by the podcast superstars Peter Villa and Bryan Gould of the How Was Your Run Today show (found on all your most important podcast apps). The guys engage in talk about (shocker) running, destination races, Millinocket Maine Half Marathon, getting started, and all things in between. Check out their show and make sure to give them a review and let them know you heard about them through teamE4E (and while you're at it go to iTunes and leave us a nice review as well).

If you were lucky enough to be on the Facebook group while we recorded this, you go to see (and hear) John's portion of this show on Live.
You are SO lucky ...
While we continue to figure out how to Live Record, this show Rob and John talk about Whispering Pines, Gasparilla, arriving late to races and pushing your way to the front, rude vendor techniques, meeting longtime friends for the first time, and the problem with "adulting".

This is an episode where John and Rob are just talking about whatever comes to mind, from longtime listener Kristine Cox's peaking for Gasparilla, to Pavlov's Dogs theory and how the cell phone is the new bell, to having dead legs and running through them.
February 12, 2018
Luke Humphrey is many things; a member of several top 25 NCAA cross country teams, a 2:14:38 marathoner, and a three-time Olympic trial qualifier. He is also an advocate and coach who uses the Hansons Marathon Method to help runners of all abilities reach their running goals.
Luke sits down with Rob to discuss his history in the sport and the nuances of the Hansons Method, which is outlined in the books he has co-authored with Keith and Kevin Hanson.
February 5, 2018
A shorter show tonight but filled with things that will surely set you on edge and make you talk.
John gives a short race report on his 10K over the weekend and why he feels the personal bests are coming with each event, but he also admits to not eating prior to racing. So there's that, too.
Both John and Rob listen to the Fatman Chronicles podcast with Pete and Gretchen and they discuss something Pete brought up in a recent episode about a diminished feeling while training at times. Our guys have an opinion on that also.
And while you're at it, check out their show also.
No water while you eat? If Tom "the second coming" Brady believes in it then it must be true, right?
January 29, 2018
On this week's show, John and Rob discuss their specific training and how each is coming along in the timeline.
John then wonders aloud why there are books geared toward specific genders (i.e, "Running for Women") since gender plays no part in how he designs a training plan for his clients.
Ron might be switching his Pittsburgh race to one in Texas on the same weekend for the chance to run shoulders with Chip Gaines. Since this is the weekend after John's triathlon, he is pondering joining him there for the weekend. And if that is not enough of a teamE4E group racing meetup, John is going to join Rob in PA late June for the Dam Tri.
The show ends with a talk on the group being all-inclusive and welcoming, unlike other groups out there in Facebook land that is becoming increasingly condescending and, well, mean-spirited.
January 21, 2018
John and Rob save the world this week. But that was before the recording started. So what you are left with, dear listeners, is a discussion about depression, being selfish and stubborn, working through food cravings, and a talk about the issue with soy in our daily diet.
January 15, 2018
Welcome to 2018 and thank you for being a part of Endurance for Everyone and teamE4E!
Is sugar going the way of tobacco, and why do some insist on pushing sweeteners as a "healthy" alternative to sugar usage. After a short football geeking out John and Rob discuss why sugar seems to be an issue still with some people, not in its use but in its ability to turn some people into zealots. The bottom line is that your body is much like a computer; you put garbage in you are going to get garbage out. It all starts with food, and even if you are lucky enough to not show outward signs of damage, what you eat DOES affect you.
The discussion also starts with the use of treadmills, and indoor training in general and how it can both aid and hurt you when training for a race.
A "Hash Race"? What is that??
If you are not already a member of the group head on over to Facebook and check us out. If you have a chance please share the show with someone and leave us a review wherever you are listening to this.
