And ladies and gentlemen, welcome back.
We have laid Scoggins.
We're gonna get him on the line here in about two minutes.
He is a triathlete, Warner, And let's get him on the line eventually, You know, let's you know, let's get him on.
Um, we're going to go live here.
We're coming live to you from the den from the Yugo den.
Um, and ladies and gentlemen, I m boy to call him up here as we will have an exclusive interview with Lane Scott gets.
Here we go, ladies and gentlemen and leads Dialling up.
That's my mom's fun.
I don't have a fun.
How you doing? I'm good.
How are you today, sir? Good.
How are you? Well, good.
Your irony You I I always have got one instinct that like I every time I say good, I say, How are you? E? I don't know.
Ah, but should we just get in the interview? Yeah.
Uh, what what? Why am play? What got you in to try af one? Well, something completely unrelated.
To tell you the truth, I went to watch a friend run the humble marathon.
And so I watched her, watched her complete it.
I went back to the gym the next day, and I was looking through a magazine called City Sports, which I don't think is around anymore.
And I saw an adverti*****t for this triathlon, and I thought that sounds I could be fun to dio.
So I talked my friend into it.
We added another friend, and the three of us signed up for.
As it turned out, it was this huge, triumphal insensible with 20,000 people turned out to be one of the biggest triathlons in the world at the time.
Unannounced to May.
So that's kind of what got me started.
Was it the John Produce Wildflower Triathlon's? That is absolutely correct.
Yeah, because I'm looking on athletics and athletes has, like, you're holding higher every race you've ever done.
And I mean, you've done the wallflower triathlon before After this? Definitely because I'm looking at these things.
Yeah, you did a year later, but I mean, that's pretty cool.
But how is it? What is it? What is running through your mind when you're doing a triathlon? Initially it was Please don't die.
Oh, stressing the water because I was not a good swimmer.
I was very ill prepared for my 1st 1 I really didn't know what I got myself into.
I was a really good bike rider.
Um, I was a decent runner, but I was not a very good swimmer and getting in the water with, you know, depending on your wave, you know, you go in your own age group or age group of about five years.
So let's say 30 to 35.
And I think that was probably my age category back then.
You're getting in the water was say, you know, maybe 100 people, and they're all trying to get to the same point at the same time.
So it was very much like swimming in a dishwasher.
That makes sense, just a lot of chopping and arms and legs flailing all over the place.
So I really panicked in the water on my very 1st 1 Luckily, I made it out alive and was able to get on my bike, and that's kind of where I excelled from there.
I had a really good race and I was hooked.
After that, It was so exciting to cross the finish line after all that and it was just very Sicily.
Okay, on I see no over an international travel and you had one of your best finishes.
I mean, you've had a talk.
10. You had a top 10 finish, though.
You you've had more cop, 10 finishes.
But this one was by far with the most people in your in your group.
You placed 10th out of 150.
You know, how does it feel when you you know when you are when you like, cross that finish line and know that you've gone a certain amount of miles? Well, it's a huge is very fulfilling, especially for Auburn was at one point it was the they used to call it the world's toughest trying on because it was so hilly.
It was very heavily on the bike ride and it was really hilly on the run.
So just to be able to finish it and not have to not have to drop out was very fulfilling and a huge accomplishment.
But then being able to place and do really well at all those race, I think I raised over I don't know, four or five times.
And I always had really good basis there, for whatever reason.
I think probably because I was such a strong cyclist that it being a hilly course didn't really bother me.
What made you want to go in a personal training? No.
To tell you the truth, I got fired from another job that I really hate it.
So it was a blessing in disguise.
I got fired and I thought to myself, Well, what do I really want to do with my life at? And at the time, I was teaching cycling classes, indoor cycling classes, and I thought, Well, I really like doing that.
So how can I expand on that? So I looked into becoming a personal trainer, and I sought out there was about three or four Really good a personal training credential, classes or exams, whatever you want to call it.
So I chose ACE, which is the American Council on Exercise.
I studied for the program for about six months, and then I took my exam, and happily, I passed it.
It's a three hour exam.
You're locked in a room all by yourselves, So that was a little nerve wracking.
But luckily I came out on their way or the good end of it.
And that's kind of what led me to where I'm at now.
I've been doing personal training for I think, going on nine years now.
Okay, So you know, you've competing the Iron Man.
Well, you know, how was it? What was it like to compete the Iron Man against guys that were doing this like, once a month that were just like, pumping and pumping and pumping.
And, you know, we're world champion, Iron Man.
Um, play Ironman runners.
Well, I didnt really take a lot of that into consideration for my very first Ironman, which was in court Alene, Idaho.
And again, I didn't really know what I was getting myself in bulk.
I was with a group called The Try Dogs, which was the North Coast Triathlon Club.
And there was always a lot of talk about Iron Man racing.
I I knew the distance, you know, I knew it was 140 miles.
I knew everything that was involved in the distance, but I didn't really know.
So I went in kind of blindly to my 1st 1 The first book was just about survival.
I just I'm not sure if I could do this, you know, swim 2.
4 miles and then ride a bike for 112 miles and then run a marathon.
You know, that's just when you say it out loud, it sounds kind of stupid.
Um, but I just went into it thinking, I just want to finish.
I want to have a good time.
I want to be out there with my buddies racing so we could talk about it afterwards.
So I didn't really go into it with a mindset of raising other people.
I kind of went into it with a mindset of I'm just kind of you to accomplish this.
Just just push myself and see if I could do it.
Okay, so, you know, I've been you, you know, reading this.
Ah, your two bios from, you know, airport and Park point.
And they both say I'm pretty sure that one says no.
They both said you are a black.
You're black belt in, um, come food.
You know, how does it feel to be a black belt on income? Fu.
Well, that's it.
That's a good question.
I haven't thought about that quite some time.
Um, it's a huge accomplishment.
I stand nine years teaching the martial arts.
It was a lot of fun.
I worked my way up through the ranks to get that black belt, which was extremely hard, is a three hour exam.
Um, I really, really enjoyed teaching, especially Children, because they talked of discipline and it taught them, um, structure, which I think all of us need in life.
The black vote itself is it is not really something I think about.
It's the knowledge that goes along with it that I can take care of myself or handle myself in a situation where I would have to use my skills.
I hope I never have to you. I never have.
Luckily, um, and I hope I never have to.
Okay, what says you grew up, you know, exercising, You know, what were some of the sports theme playing growing up? Well, I think my first love, I really look back at it.
My first love was baseball.
I think that's what I first started playing with Little League baseball.
I was pretty good athlete growing up.
So I was always in a team above the other kids in my neighborhood.
So, for example, we used to call it miners.
It was Little League, and then you went to minors.
And then you went to majors and I jumped miners and wait two Major because I was pretty good ball player.
I thought at some point that I could be a potentially a big league ball player.
Um, I played, you know, football around the neighborhood that never organized.
It was too soon for that.
Um, played tennis in high school, and probably golfers were really turned into my passion in high school because I wasn't gonna get hurt.
And I was pretty good golf.
I started playing when I was about 10 with my dad.
Um, but I played every sport there.
Waas, Like I said, go tennis.
I don't know if he could count football playing in the streets with your buddies, but we'll call it that.
And baseball? I played everything as a kid.
I just love sports as a kid. Still do.
Um, Selena, uh, you on your own both the website today? The similar quote said by you it says, use your body every day.
It is the most powerful and unique instrument you'll ever own.
And you know what is the meaning? What is the exact meaning of that quote? Well, your body is something you carry with you every single day.
It is the greatest instrument you're ever gonna own if you there's an old saying, If you don't use that, you're gonna lose it.
Which is very true.
Um, to me, it just means keeping your body in the best shape possible for you, whatever that names for you.
So that you can perform your daily activities throughout your life so that you can perform a sports that you like to do at the best of your ability.
Um, that's kind of what it means to me.
Okay, I won't last question.
So, you know, the last dance has been going.
Have you gotten the chance to see it? Yes.
Because he still was being money.
Jordan knows you Money? Yeah, he's into me for about 25 grand from a goal out.
He does? I was like, Yeah, I could see that cause I don't even know I don't think with my past Gulf endeavors.
I don't think that I have had an actual, you know, like, actually could have beaten Jordan.
Um, I have been watching it.
It's I thought it was gonna be a little bit or revealing that it waas I didn't think it was all that, you know, revealing about him.
It was more about his basketball career, and I thought I was going to be more about him as a person.
But it really I didn't think it really waas and he was good. It's hard to watch.
I'm more interested in in the Tiger slam a serious that's coming on this weekend.
Yeah. Ask any pre fun.
Uh, but thank you, Lane.
And ah, I hope that, like, Dad, you and I can go out on the golf course for these days.
Um, but I have a great day.
Be fun. You're going looking forward to that.
He could keep being saying I appreciate your time.
We'll have a good afternoon.
Have a good lunch, cause I'm probably holding you off from lunch.
So have a good lunch.
Thank you. You're welcome.
