Aaron is the first age-group triathlete to join the show that hasn’t won an Ultraman and he has some outstanding advice to share when it comes to making it happen as a husband, father, business owner and triathlete! For the purpose of full disclosure: Aaron is a client of Endurance Sports University and I am his coach.
Sit back and enjoy, the conversation is awesome and packed full of real world advice that is implemented daily by an age-group athlete that performs at a very high level!
