303Endurance Podcast

Sep 12, 2020

We are catching up with Siri after 3 years to talk about some of the advice she's sharing with her clients during this COVID experience.  In this UCAN coaches panel a couple of months ago, Siri shared some advice on how to reframe this as an opportunity. 

Siri has amazing courage and leadership.  She's really someone people feel like they can relate to and who she makes you feel relatable too.  Through her athletic career there were many challenges and battles, yet none would be as challenging as battle and ultimate victory over leukemia.  She is truly inspirational and wise.

Interview Sponsor UCAN:

Bill, I get the UCAN newsletter and on the Blog this week titled UCAN for Daily Nutrition. [link in the show notes] I fell into a recipe black hole on the UCAN recipe page. There were a couple of recipes that you may enjoy.  You want to hear one or two?

Banana Bread flavored smoothie is delicious and satisfying – a perfect morning meal.

  • Add 8 ounces of your preferred milk, 2 scoops of UCAN Energy + Protein Cookies and Cream, 1/2 of a banana, 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1/2 of a cup of unsweetened Greek yogurt, and a handful of ice into a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!

For the coffee lover

  • Add 6 oz of cold coffee, 4 oz of your preferred milk, and 2 scoops of Chocolate UCAN Energy + Protein into any blender and mix until creamy! Optional: add 1/2 of a banana and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter to make a meal replacement.


I am into my UCAN energy coffee bars 2-3 per week and same with the UCAN Energy Powder.  I want to get some extra Plain SuperStarch Energy Tub and try these recipes and maybe experiment on my own.  UCAN gives you steady energy so you can finish stronger. UCAN Performance Energy and Bars are powered by SuperStarch®.   Use in your training to fuel the healthy way and recover quickly!

Interview with Siri Lindley:

We shared a teaser interview with Siri a few weeks ago.  It was an interview that we did in 2017.  We were a fairly new podcast back then and were really honored to have a World Cup Series winner in 2001 and 2002. One of the winningest Triathletes in Triathlon History and the Triathlete of the year in both 2001 and 2002.  Not to mention her coaching credentials.


Well this interview coming up we just recorded and a lot has happened since.  Siri has overcome her greatest challenge in a battle with leukemia and her beautiful victory that you are about to hear.   Bill, did you know that "Siri" is a Scandinavian female given name. It is a short form of Sigrid, of Old Norse origin, and literally meaning "beautiful victory".  I want to title this show "Beautiful Victory". 


Post Interview Discussion

Siri is just one of those people that is just so easy to talk to and makes you feel good. 

I'd love to introduce Morgan to Siri and Bek.  Morgan is such an animal lover.  I told her what Siri told us about pushing the deer off the road.




Recommend her book, "Surfacing".

Alistair Brownlee and Helvellyn Triathlon on Sunday

PTO Board Member Alistair Brownlee after lining up to start the World Triathlon Series in Hamburg on Saturday at 4pm and then flying back to the UK right after the race (arriving in the UK at midnight) in time to honour his commitment to Helvellyn Triathlon on Sunday am. He won the race and set a new course record. All on a few hours of sleep. What a legend. Alistair said “This year has been a tough year for professional athletes and the charitable sector so I’m going to donate half my prize money to the professional athletes who raced and didn’t win prize money today and the other half to the Brownlee Foundation. I feel lucky to be involved with the PTO and have been lucky to be well supported by the PTO this year.”


What's New in the 303:

Lookout Mountain Triathlon, a Record Broken and Good Day to Race

The Lookout Mountain triathlon last weekend had many side stories, like most any race of any kind. With COVID and safety protocols and procedures, athletes were really racing themselves more than ever with the swim start of splitting a lane with another athlete and only 12 people on deck at a time really spreading the race out. There were minimal athletes on the road and trail passing each other. Transition was roomy and very little overlap took place.
