Tim Reed - Australian Ironman 70.3 World Champion & Coach - 2021 IM 70.3 Predictions

September 16, 2021
Today, I’m joined in the studio by Tim Reed. Tim has over 80 professional podium finishes, winning 23 Ironman 70.3 distance events, add to that Ironman Australia, and in 2016 won the Ironman 70.3 World Championships on home soil on the Sunshine Coast. Queensland, Australia.
Somehow, he’s able to balance his professional racing with his wife and raising their three young boys.
It’s been a pleasure watching him win so consistently over the years. And now I get to sit with him in the studio.
In this episode, we discuss Tim's journey and his process, we dissect the Ironman 70.3 World Championships and we have some fun with 15 rapid-fire questions.
I'll have to have Tim back on the show. His knowledge of what it takes to perform at the highest level is remarkable... we could have kept talking for hours... in fact, we did keep chatting post-recording for a long time.
