Endurance Hour #164, 5x Ironman and Survivor of Crohn's Disease, Bo Parrish
This week we welcome 5x Ironman finisher, Author, Speaker and friend of the podcast, Bo Parrish.  Bo is also a survivor of a near-death experience. In the spring of 2006, Bo nearly lost my life to a 15 year battle with Crohn’s Disease. His body had shut down due to a ruptured colon and a miraculous surgery allowed Bo to survive.
In the last 10 years, he has transformed his physical body and now compete as an elite amateur triathlete. In addition to his 5 Ironman finishes, Bo has competed in the Ironman 70.3 World Championships 3 times and the U.S.A.T National Championships 5 times.
Be sure to check out, “How To Swim Faster in 30 Days” with  Ironman Certified Coach and 8x Kona finisher, Wendy Mader.  You can find that under the Training Plans tab.  Also released, “16 Weeks to Ironman 70.3 Program” for beginner to intermediate triathletes.  That too is under the Training Plans tab.  Coming soon, “Road to Ironman 70.3” for intermediate to advanced triathletes with Roger Thompson.  Thank you for listening!  Dave & Roger!Leave us a VOICEMAIL question anytime from your laptop, desktop or cell phone.
