The Story of TrainerRoad

Are you guys able to dedicate a podcast to how you built TrainerRoad?

Why you did you build it.
What drove you to build the platform.
How did the team come about

etc etc?

Would love to hear about it

I would like to hear a full story covered. In the absence of that, here is some info:

I remember @Nate being the support person. He had to help “us” beta testers figure out how to downres videos like Sufferfest so our computers could handle everything.

Love the little tidbits that get dropped in interviews or different podcasts.

Jonathan goes over it at a very high level on the Go To Bed podcast.

The DCR article (back in September 2011) shows Mary Austin was already there, planning to grind us into dust, almost 8 years ago.

I can’t help but be totally impressed with the work they did to make the product what it is today. Just reading through that old DC Rainmaker article from 2011, you see Nate posting about it being still at the serious hobby level and being a new parent. The 2011 version of me was also a new parent juggling other things, so to see how far him and the team have come from building that is just beyond impressive. I’ve been with TR in some capacity since 2013, and it’s crazy to see how far everything has come.
