We did it! It's done! Six months, 25 episodes and hundreds of miles later, this podcast and its weary hosts complete their long training season. Tune in to find out if everyone make it across their finish lines in one piece.

Big Data.  Small Data.  Even Build A Wall Data. And maybe this is the episode that Aussie Bites finally signs on as a sponsor.

It's the day we've all been waiting for: the gents have completed their endurance events and are here to talk about their respective successes and failures and... wait, what? We're not done yet? There's more to come?

To hell with radio silence! We're podcasters which means we gotta talk, and with Vance's big event just days -- nay, hours -- away there is so much to talk about. See you at the finish line!

One of the Training Men is ready to toe the line while the other still has his line a few weeks away. In an old podcasting technique called "building suspense," this will be the last episode until all the said events are done and in the history books. So for now, enjoy the discussion about endurance bucket li... I mean, GREAT THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU'RE ALIVE.

It's not just the hours and the miles, but the way in which they're done. Technique means everything from the height of your seat to the bend of your elbow to the depth of your breathing, and all (most) of it makes a difference. All this plus the return of nipple chafing.

It's the home stretch, baby! This ep is all about the lies -- the sweet little lies -- we tell ourselves to keep going those extra miles. (Hint: one of the  tricks involves beer and another involves sugar.)

The heat of summer isn't over but the miles still need to get done as Chicago and Carolina loom ever nearer. Thank the deities for gas station beer caves and porn-writing fathers.

When we're not podcasting, we're mainlining other shows. Fine, we're addicts. Happy now? But before we enroll in Podcasting Anonymous, hear the Hall of Fame shows that get us through our long rides and runs. And maybe there's a story about meeting Cam Newton.
