Today I sync up with globally renowned, American Professional Triathlete, the incredible Matt Russell.  Matt got his start in professional triathlon back in 2011 but in 2017 at the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Matt had a life changing accident that altered the course of his life forever, when he was hit by a van while racing at 35mph on the bike course.  After surviving this devastating accident, Matt was undeterred from racing, he went back the following year to compete in Ironman World Championships coming in 6th place, and he continues to compete today.  This conversation is all about overcoming obstacles, having faith, believing, and having positive attitude in the face of adversity.  We also talk triathlon, health, nutrition, diet and mediation and how OOFOS Footwear has played a huge role in Matt’s journey back to racing, training, and everyday movement.

OOFOS is the global leader in recovery footwear, founded by a team of industry veterans looking to help runners and fitness enthusiasts recover better from their workouts.

On this episode, Matt shares the terrifying details of his 2017 accident, he talks about his recent health issues and recurring seizures, and his new diet helping him to prevent them. We do a deep dive into racing and training, long and short term goal setting, and disconnecting from data. Plus, Matt talks about the importance of family, his new nutrition focus, and embarking upon a functional medicine approach to health. We talk about the importance of rest and recovery. Matt offers insight into his favorite tools and routines including his OOFOS for all occasions!
