We caught up with Chris in Kona overlooking the Kailua-Kona Pier, a place to which Chris is no stranger; he’s raced the Ironman World Championships multiple times with his best finish coming in second in 2009.

Chris is no longer racing at the highest level, and we hear his story of his decision to move away from professional triathlon racing. However, Chris is busier than ever growing More Than Sport, being a dad/husband, and much more.

Specifically on More Than Sport, in this show learn:

  • What’s the mission statement and purpose of More Than Sport
  • What kind of charitable work are members doing?
  • Why More Than Sport makes it easier than ever to do quality charity work
  • Which big pros are involved
  • Some of the specific projects that Chris and members are doing
  • Who can join, and how to get involved
  • How to contribute (the EP team bought More Than Sport shirts after the interview to show our support!)
  • The growth of the organization
  • and much more!
