Boulder, CO based coach Neal Henderson is a very busy man and among his flock of athletes are Cameron Dye, Flora Duffy and Taylor Phinney. We were able to pin him down in between trips around the world.
Slowtwitch: Good to chat with you Neal.
Neal: Thanks, great to finally catch up. Sometimes getting a hold of me is like trying to nail jello to a wall. It only took about 2 years, right?
ST: No worries, we were not counting.
Neal: Hopefully the wait is worth it.
ST: Does it feel good to be home?
Neal: It’s always good to be home. I’m lucky to be able to travel to some amazing places around the world - just in 2012 alone I’ve been to Mallorca, Melbourne, London, Italy, San Diego, LA, and more but Boulder, CO is still my favorite place of all of them. We have true changes in season here – sometime all 4 seasons in just one day! This week it was 80 degrees on Wednesday and today I woke up to a dusting of snow and it’s 35 degrees. I guess I like a little bit of unpredictability.
ST: It would appear that the LA Triathlon result found you well.
