My guest this week is the great Taren Gesell from Triathlon Taren!
Taren is a YouTuber (meaning that he makes videos on YouTube) and also a podcaster, who has quickly become an authority on all-things triathlon, and not because he is a professional athlete or because he’s been around triathlon for a long time....
...It’s more because he is an age group triathlete who creates really really good content on all things swim-bike and run. Besides, he is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! He’s a really cool dude
Taren was in Boulder last week, covering the Ironman 70.3 ,so I reached to him, we met at Rally Sport and had a fun chat
On this conversation, Taren talks about growing up in Canada, what sports he used to participate in before discovering triathlon..like curling for instance, where he played at a very elite level (he was a pro!)
We also talked about skateboarding..which I thought it was so fun because I used to skateboard as well (you’ll hear him talking about making videos for his friends..so he’s had this curiosity and passion for video for quite sometime
One of my favorite parts, is when Taren talks about how he got into triathlons, it was basically after getting injured while lifting at the gym. So he started walking on the treadmill, riding his bike..then after asking a friend about doing triathlons he competed on his first one..and the rest is history.
I admire Taren,not just because he works really hard to put out good content, but also because of his consistency, ..and that consistency has made him build a a great brand.
