It feels so good to post this episode. We’ve only known Ed Bauer a few years, but he’s like an old friend. And in our series we’ve met lots of super nice folks, but he just may be the nicest. And you asked for a strength athlete or a Crossfit athlete. We are delivering on both and one upping you by bringing a Crossfit coach. Boom. Read more!

Today we spend the day cyclocross training in the snow and cold with bad-ass cyclist Cat Johnson in Boulder, Colorado.
