Welcome to episode 194 of the Löw Tide Böyz - A Swimrun Podcast!
On deck this week is our race recap for the 2023 edition of the One Water Race. To help paint the picture of this epic event we welcome back to the show (for the third time) OG Swimrunner and race director, Thomas Ogander. Thomas and the team really stepped up their game for the 2023 edition of the race and we can’t wait to share this race recap with all of you.
We have just one race left on the 2023 calendar and we’ve set our “training gaze” to Ödyssey Swimrun Austin Pace Bend in early November. TBD on what the training will look like but the swimming and running will continue unabated.
This week we’re shouting out Andy and the whole team at New England Endurance Events. They had to make the tough call to cancel Swimrun Cape Cod this past weekend due to looming Hurricane Lee. I, for one, really appreciated all of their communication during what must have been a huge bummer for everyone involved. The race looked like a lot of fun and it’s already on the calendar for 2024. The race date will be September 21, 2024.
Feats of Endurance
This week’s award is probably better named as the FOMO award. Shoutout to everyone that raced Ödyssey Swimrun Orcas Island over the weekend. Looked like an amazing day out there and congrats to everyone that lined up at Rosario Resort!
Make sure to sign up for our LTBz Strava Club and join Swimrunners from around the world as they train for stuff.
Thomas Ogander, One Water Race
It was great to chat with Thomas. His enthusiasm, energy, and dedication is infectious and can’t express strongly enough how massive a feat it is to bring his dream of this 250km race to life and then do it again. In this conversation we got his race director report, his focus on environmental awareness, and his plan for 2024.
There’s a lot of awesome content about this year’s race so make sure that you head to YouTube to get your mind blown.
That’s it for this week’s show.
