36 – New Year Nuggets with Tim & Nicole DeBoom

January 1, 2017 2 Comments


Happy New Year! It’s 2017. Time to look forward, make plans and move your life in the direction you want it to go. The New Year always seem like the Monday of all Mondays. It’s a clean slate. You get to wash 2016 away and start all over with grand gestures and majestic plans.

This is cool; I usually announce a big something or other I plan to do in the year ahead too. But this year, I’m behind. I plan to get my act together by my birthday in February. So in the meantime, I looked for inspiration elsewhere and found it in the form of my husband, Tim.


On December 28th we celebrated our 20th anniversary and found ourselves in a place of love, acceptance, and true happiness. I decided it was the perfect time to have a conversation with Tim about some big issues. Get ready for a good one!






We dig into the following:

  • Marriage
  • The differences between men and women
  • Some things that have helped us stay together despite some tough ups and downs
  • Having a kid in our 40s – how life changed
  • Stories from our careers are professional triathletes
  • Tim’s Greatest Hits album from his 20 year racing career
  • Depression as it relates to sports and the undeniable post-Ironman blues
  • Aging and how you can still pursue the sports you’ve always loved
  • Training for life
  • How to get “above treeline” wherever you are




Thanks for tuning into this one! Please take a minute to write a review on iTunes so we can keep getting these awesome messages out into the world. And if you have any suggestions on future guests, please let me know!


Have a BEAUTIFUL 2017!!!

    Thanks Nicole and Tim for posting the video of his 2001 winning finish one of my all time favorites that had so much meaning besides winning the race . Being in the sport since 1985 I have recorded what I feel are golden nuggets of Hawaii Ironman clips that change the man or women so they can reflect many years after there win and come to realize they can share some of what Al Tautwig said about the finish line at Kona ” a finish line of human gold “

    • Lew, I so appreciate that you included Tim in this list of great moments. Watching his face as he comes down the line is so special. You can read so much more than just the thrill of victory. Thank you!
