    For the past 4 years Matt has put 'Completing a Half Ironman' on his list of biggest goals. But he's always put it off due to fear and procrastination. Until now, where, along with his friend Conor, he overcomes endless doubt, fear, uncertainty and lack of training to go compete head on in a race that once seemed impossible to him...all with only 30 days of training.
    Special people to thank for making this episode happen:
    Conor for always being down for the most insane challenges. Check out his RU-clip channel here: ru-clip.com/channel/UC1E5Ti2P70zZxA4osS2MhiA
    Rich Roll for being both an inspiration and mentor throughout this whole process. Check out his RU-clip channel here: ru-clip.com/user/richroll66videos
    Rich also has a great podcast which you can find here: itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-rich-roll-podcast/id582272991?mt=2)
    Gina Baski and the whole Trifit team for teaching Matt the essentials and allowing him to train in their incredible gym. Visit trifitla.com/ to train for your triathlon.
    Fuji Bikes @fujibikes for supplying both Conor and Matt with their bike.
    @andreeashem for the epic cinematography
    Thank you to @itsnicoyeager for lending us his drone for the day!

      A year ago on Thanksgiving Day my older cousin ran a 5K known as, "Turkey Trot." This race was a thing on his resolution to finish before the year was over. On that same day last year he asked that one from his two sisters and/or my brother and I to run in the Turkey Trot with him in 2018. Knowing me and the idea I keep close about, "Putting your words to action." I decided that same day I would do the Turkey Trot with my cousin in 2018. Sure enough on November 18th, 2018 I made the ultimate decision that there was no turning back. Even though I haven't trained AT ALL compared to him. I ran the turkey trot. I placed 94 of 139 Females in my age group. Not only would I like to thank my cousin, family, and supporters. I'd like to thank Yes Theory for motivating me that even if I feel like the world is saying I CAN'T do it or I WON'T make it. There is just an apostrophe separating what we have yet to discover.

    Competing in triathlon at a high level, even at the age of 14, I know how draining the sport can be. It challenges your metal and physical health and when you overwork either aspects (more likely mental over physical), you can break down. The training, let a lone the race, can be quite rigorous and when you are not used to the mental and physical pain, you are truely pushed to your limits. Props to anyone who has ever completed and even just attempted an ironman/triathlon. The sport is very much mental, if you see the race as impossible to complete, you likely won't succeed, but if you see the race like Yes Theory does, you are likely to complete your goal!

    I can't believe I haven't seen this video until now. I've followed Yes Theory for over a year and am an avid triathlete myself. I have completed 3 half ironmans and plan to race Ironman Texas now that I am finally old enough since I just turned 18. This video was even more inspiration for my training and it was really great to see Matt race a Half Ironman just like I've done.
