About Crushing Iron

Thank you for considering support of the Crushing Iron podcast. We are a couple of guys, Mike and Coach Robbie, who have have created over 300 podcasts (released every Monday and Thursday) all focused on demystifying triathlon for beginners, intermediates, and seasoned veterans. This page is built to help us with costs associated with podcasting and building a happy and healthy triathlon community.

We have created two new tiers to make supporting the Crushing Iron Podcast simple. 

Tier One: $3.26 per month. This number represents C26. C=3 dollars. The 26 cents = the 26 in our logo which also represents the atomic number for Iron. Crushing-Iron. 

Tier Two: $13.26. This is simply adding 10 dollars a month for those who want to be more generous and feel like the information we give freely on our 8 hour-long podcasts each month is worth it. 

Each contribution amount is a unique number in the sense that when it shows up on your credit card you will recognize it. 

We simply love triathlon and want you and the sport to flourish by building a community of great people. We've been sharing our enthusiasm for years on the blogpodcasts, through coaching athletes, and by making high quality race tribute videos like this:

Our Situation: We are Mike Tarrolly and Robbie Bruce, two guys who met through triathlon. Robbie helped coach Mike to his first Ironman finish in 2013 at age 50. Throughout that time Mike journaled that experience on and Robbie was a frequent contributor. 

Over the next three years, Mike finished three more full Ironman and several shorter triathlons, all with Robbie as his coach. They began thinking about a podcast, but the timing wasn't right. Robbie moved to Kansas City and the podcast started for real by Skype in November 2016. Now that Robbie is back in Nashville and we have big plans for Crushing Iron, including our first triathlon camp in July.

It's 2018 and we have over 300 podcasts and nearly 1,000 published articles on Crushing Iron. We've also produced multiple race videos that have been watched by 10's of thousands of triathletes on YouTube and Vimeo. The seed is in place, but in order to take this all to the next level, we need some support. Not a ton but some so we can make more rich content that helps triathletes succeed in races and life.

The way Patreon works is a supporter can donate an amount of their choosing and that donation recurs each month. Any donation, from $1/month up, is hugely helpful to the cause.

What We'll Use the Money For

There are many costs associated with producing a podcast: Equipment, time, storage, hosting, etc. Anything you can afford will go directly to making sure the podcast is viable and will continue.
