    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

      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.

    Since I was 10 I've been doing (kid) triathlons, I've always loved it and trained for hard for every competitions but last I suddenly became very ill and lost all my muscle, stamina and sadly motivation in the span of a few months. Since then it's been so hard keeping myself motivated, but this video reminded me to keep going, thanks so much for this.

    14:06 on my bike trip I went with my class my teacher told me something that his old teacher told him something. right after we went up this long hill that there’s going to be a voice in your head. Think of him as a little man in your head telling you to “relax it doesn’t matter if you finish this, just relax and forget about it no body will get mad at you for giving up” and do you know what my teacher said. He said to grab that little man and put him between your shoulder blades and CRUSH THE LITTLE MAN, grab the little man and put him on the front of your tire and run him over, over and over again, to make the little man quiet.

    I subscribed to this channel when I thought it was just some laid back west coast guys filming themselves as they'd go into haunted/abandoned buildings. Thank you for being a channel that is so much more than my initial simple impression! You guys are truly inspiring. And I can't wait for opportunities to seek discomfort in 2019 and beyond!

    this made me tear up. I just found this channel today and I'm loving it. Watching Matt and Conor finish the race made me miss running. I fell down the stairs at work 6 months ago and messed up my knee. Long story short, I haven't been able to move that well and have been in constant pain. I am finally seeing a doctor next week to look over my MRI. I can't wait for my knee to get fixed so I can maybe one day compete in something like this. Thank you for spreading these encouraging and positive vibes.

    I love that you guys want to help people accomplish their dreams, but I feel like people you don't help will feel like they need you to accomplish them when anyone can do it on their own. Idk it just feels like it shows people that with a lot of money you can make your dreams a reality which for the most part isn't true. Love the channel just wanted to point that out bc although my dreams haven't come true yet, I know they will someday. Even with the 0.0001% chance of you guys trying to make mine come true.

    There was Once I doubted myself for a kayaking expedition. I pulled through and completed 100km of kayaking. Till now that's been my biggest accomplishment. It wasn't only 100km though. There was 3 other selections prior to the main expedition. Summing up all the selection and the total expedition, i still can't believe I completed 160km of kayaking.
