Jan Matt: Biking, Running, and Doing What Makes You Happy

On today’s podcast we have my very good friend, Jan Matt. Jan Matt is currently a Real Estate Finance Associate and loves running, cycling, and lifting weights. We’ve been close friends since meeting at our alma mater, the University of Florida, and while we don’t play basketball, eat froyo, and drink boba together like we did during college, we do try to go running and drink craft beer whenever we link up nowadays.In this episode we discuss a bunch of topics, including how Jan Matt got into running and cycling, his first triathlon, his first 10k, and running with his puppy, Zuko. He’s also completed some very interesting and inspiring self challenges that include running 30 miles in 30 days, and running 13 miles in 13 hours. I thought these were really fun goals that anyone can set and achieve for themselves and do with friends, at any time of the year - especially during these times when pretty much all races are cancelled due to COVID-19.Jan Matt is a great example of someone who follows his passions and interests, especially when it comes to physical fitness, and isn’t afraid to “taste something new”. He’s always stepping out of his comfort zone, keeping things fresh, and through this, always challenging and bettering himself as a person. This episode was filled with a lot of laughs, a lot of stories, and it was really just a great time catching up. I hope that you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!- Do what makes you happy!- Do lots of research when looking to buy used bikes and/or bike gear online.- If you’re interested in a new sport or hobby, the only way to see if you really like it or not, is to try it out. Stop hesitating, and just do it!- How to Flip Turn in a pool- Follow Jan Matt on Instagram for some inspiration: @thejanmatt- Follow Jan Matt’s dog on Instagram: @doodleprince_zuko- Check out Jan Matt’s podcast: Take This Cup- Subscribe to my triathlon YouTube channel for triathlon tips, training/racing vlogs, and reviews: Jeremy Tri- Follow me on Instagram to keep up with my swim/bike/run adventures: @thetriathletebeat- Hit me up on Twitter for podcast topics, guest recommendations, questions, etc.: @triathletebeat
