IM, E101 - Man, Max Fennell

Inheriting Manhood

Max Fennell is a professional triathlete and entrepreneur. He blazes trails and loves serving in a variety of ways.  I've always been fascinated by athletes in non-traditional sports, so getting to speak with Max was really enjoyable for me. Character matters, and Max is someone with an abundance of it. I have no doubt his future is beyond bright.

Obstacle Running Adventures

Diversity in sports!  Basketball, football, and soccer all have it but why doesn't OCR, triathlon, or other endurance sports?  This is what the Overcome All Obstacles Foundation aims to change!

Ep. 46: Is Max Fennell the most interesting guy in triathlon?

The Triathlete Hour

This week, we're back with Sid Talks with Laura Siddall, who helps us dissect the 2020 prize money list—or lack of prize money—and the upcoming bombshell of a race in Miami. And then we chat with Max Fennell, who we've dubbed 'the most interesting man in triathlon.'Max is the only Black pro triathlete—and arguably the first, we discuss. He was also recruited for the TV show 'Million Dollar Mile,' and the televised Spartan Games earlier this year. Plus, he runs his own coffee company, ran for city council, recently co-founded an organization to get more athletes of color into endurance sports, and took up bow hunting as part of his 3-4 year plan to qualify for Kona.And: Why you should try sleeping outside under a tree.

Episode 017 with Max Fennell

Do It For Yourself Podcast

This is The Do It For Yourself Podcast.  Each week I sit down with someone who is doing it for themselves and chasing a dream they just couldn't suppress.  This is often speakers, entrepreneurs, or athletes.  They all share one thing in common, they are overcoming challenges and never giving up.  Someone who is Doing It For Themselves is not selfish in their pursuit, they are simply chasing a dream or working towards a goal because it is something THEY want to do.  They are not forging down a path because society or someone is telling them it's what they should be doing.   This week my guest is professional triathlete, Max Fennell.  Max is a professional triathlete living in sunny central California.  He was born and raised in Pennsylvania but moved out to California to work with his coach.  Becoming a professional triathlete was an amazing accomplishment by Max, however, the when Max became a professional triathlete who was the FIRST African American professional triathlete.  This came with its own set of challenges.  Max faced some backlash from people in the sport that made being a professional triathlete even more challenging.  Working as a pro early on it was difficult to pay bills, find housing and many other things that most early pro triathletes face.  Max how to do this all while receiving threating messages, notes and hate.   Max used these experiences to channel the negative and turn it into a positive.  He will not be representing a country in hopes to show kids that they too can pursue a dream just as he did.  Max was very open and honest about how these things impacted him and I thank him for sharing not only this part of his story but his whole story with me on The Do It For Yourself podcast.   I hope you enjoy this weeks episode with Max Fennell.
