Coaches on Couches Ep. 59 – From Dirt to Ironman with Bobby Weakley

Fire fighter, soon to be father, master movie quoter. We’re going to talk about Bobby’ Weakley’s transition…ummm…from mountain bike specialist to ironman finisher. And yes, we start off with WHY. Then the HOW. It wasn’t an easy road to travel. Ridicule from his co-workers and mountain bike buddies. Learning to swim as an adult. Running on road when there’s a perfectly good trail nearby. Tough stuff. But ultimately it culminated to a great performance at Ironman Chattanooga in 2019.

Bobby gives a lot of insight into how he made the jump from a single sport athlete to a multisport monster. If you listen for no other reason it would be to see how many movie quotes Bobby and Coach Dale can throw into one episode. If you watch the Youtube version, we’ve got a running movie quote counter going.
