Boulder endurance athlete Billy Edwards joins us the night before the Boulder Ironman Triathlon. Billy should be asleep right now but is taking 15 minutes to chat with us about tomorrow's event.
One of the world's most popular triathlon destinations, this beloved Rocky Mountain town now hosts a full-distance race. Welcome to IRONMAN Boulder.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for world-class triathletes. The city's health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment means it's destined to be an instant favorite on the IRONMAN circuit.
Boulder's robust downtown, with its famous pedestrian-only Pearl Street Mall and idyllic Boulder Creek, will provide families and fans an unforgettable race day as they wait for their loved ones to cross the finish line. From five-star hotels to James Beard award-winning restaurants, Boulder's hotel and dining options are some of the best in the nation.
The race will start at the Boulder Reservoir with a single loop 2.4-mile swim. Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful 112-mile one-loop bike course in the city's vast open space. The bike will loop around Carter Lake and along the eastern plains of the Front Range before ending downtown at Boulder High School.
The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.
Karen Rands returns with her Compassionate Capitalist radio show to discuss how a global market impacts entrepreneurs & investors when it comes to predicting the success of an early stage company. The best selling book "The World is Flat" by Thomas Friedman, set forth the premise that business leaders should view the world as a level playing field in terms of commerce, where all competitors have an equal opportunity. Although books is a decade old, the idea is relevant in todays world just as much back then.
In this episode, Karen will explore what this means to entrepreneurs and investors when it comes to launching and growing a company. The ying/yang of a "flat world" is competition & collaboration. When it comes to bringing innovation to market it is easy to think that a company has "no competition". This is rarely the case. The competition may be indirect, shifting the staus quo, or simply in another part of the world that neither the entrepreneur or investor knows about. Not anticipating the existence of competition creates a false sense of safety. Likewise, identifying potential collaboration partners can strengthen a company before they are faced with direct competition to remain in a place of dominance.
Boulder endurance athlete Billy Edwards absolutely ROCKED the Boulder Ironman placing 8th overall (including the pros). It was no easy effort for the man who's placed so much focus on his cycling in recent years - at one point during the run Edwards thought he was going to have to drop out. But, Billy perservered, overcame his difficulties and finished in 9 hours 19minutes 40 seconds. An Ironman Triathlon is a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike race followed by a marathon run. More than 2,500 athletes from 33 different countries participated in the Boulder (CO) Ironman Triathlon held this past Sunday.
'Competition'...what is it, really...and what else is now possible?
We've all been raised within a society that glorifies competition in all its forms: from 'survival of the fittest' to 'Survivor' and everything in between. Whether we're talking about sports or 'getting a leg up' in the business world...'competition' has been a standard theme throughout the Ages. It has elicited corporate secrecy and separation between nations. It has fostered judgement and ill-will between atheltes, artists, businessmen and politicians alike.
However, as this massive Shift of Consciousness progresses at a tremendous rate, for those who are at the leading edge, the old standard of 'competition' is now losing its allure. We begin to realize that within the paradigm of 'competition' is a built-in structure of 'excellence'...and that 'excellence' has the potential to benefit ALL.
When approached wisely, 'competition' can inspire greatness. It can inspire innovation, invention and personal expansion. It can inspire solutions to age-old problems and elicit feats of glory from athletes. When used as a catalyst for excellence, competition can propel us into a future of collective greatness.
What possibilities and potentials do YOU see within the realm of 'competition'?

In Today’s teaching, we are examining the Spirit of competition:
Case #1: You call someone to tell them about your vision; they don’t have time to listen. You ask them to be a guest on your radio show, which only requires 15 to 30 minutes of their time and they tell you they are quite busy with a full schedule, and will get back with you. A few weeks later, you tell them about a jazz festival featuring Prince and they tell you “I will be there? Are you ready?
