Tritheos/Northwest Race Report Everything Northwest Endurance Sports

When I first met Andrew Fast, he was living with his parents, had no legitimate results to his name, and literally had mice living in his car.  Andrew had to live up to his namesake, so he trained really hard in the Woodinville area for two years with me and several other strong triathletes. Now he is a legit pro, just coming off a 5th place at Ironman 70.3 Mount-Tremblant, and is also working towards a doctorate in P.T. school in New Hampshire.  I guess life for Andrew is finally starting to look up!

In the third ever Tritheos podcast Marathoner Nick Schuetze walks us through his spiritual journey and discusses the impact Altitude Project had and continues to have on his life.  Altitude Project is a Christian distance running camp held every summer in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Their mission is to develop collegiate distance runners to excel in competitive running and Christian living.

 

In addition to the interview we discuss the failures of the notion of rule following as part of spirituality:

#1 It can’t bring you to God

#2 It can’t make you more like God.


We also address the church-going view that you have to sacrifice spiritually if you wish to excel athletically and the opposing view, that you have to sacrifice athletically in order to grow spiritually” and wonder if there might be a third option.

I splitthis interview up into two parts as Nick gave me a lot of content.
