If you don't know much about the movie Greyhound, you're not alone. This Hollywood blockbuster, written by and starring Tom Hanks, was an early casualty of COVID-19, and eventually landed on Apple TV+ this summer. When Hanks heard the movie wouldn't be playing in theaters he said he it was “An absolute heartbreak.”

Fortunately for us, our friend Rob Koh is back with us to break it all down. In addition to being an Ironman triathlete, Rob served as a U.S. Naval officer and spent time in active duty in a U.S. submarine. Rob tells us what he thought of the film, and how it compared with his real life experience in service. Co-host Eugene also weighs in on why Tom Hanks's movie characters are the heroes we need. Thank you Rob and Eugene for coming on the show, and thank you everyone for listening!

"Acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy path." - Captain Krause (quoting Proverbs 3:5)

 

Sep 15, 2020

After a restful summer, I can't think of a better way to start off the new season than with a reunion! Long time listeners will remember experienced Ironman triathletes Rob Koh and Sam Chung. Both Sam and Rob were training for Ironman races when COVID-19 hit the U.S. in early March. In today's episode, they recount both the general chaos and confusion of those early days and how it impacted their training, as well as how their triathlon community adjusted to the new realities of the pandemic and their experience with "virtual" racing. Along they way, they also make a solid effort to recruit co-host Eugene Chang into the sport! 

Thank you Sam and Rob for once again coming on the podcast (for what's now looking like a series!). Thank you Eugene as always for your co-hosting presence. And thank you everyone for listening!

Update / Spoiler alert: After we recorded this episode, Sam got his bike back! :)
