Fun fact

Matt comes from 
a wrestling background, but running has always been a passion.

“The focus had shifted from [triathlon being] a hobby to now being the way I was trying to support my family. [...] I was so results-focused. I was thinking in a race ‘if I can pass this guy that’s another $1000’.”

“I had gone away from what got me to the point where I was: executing the game plan, finding out how deep I can push myself, being a competitor, and letting the results sort themselves at the end. For me, the process focus gives much better results than a results focus.”
