In this episode:

Magnesium is the latest supplement to be advertised as a panacea for all that ails triathletes. Can it really do everything that the makers of Pillar, a powdered drink form of the element, promise? On this episode's medical mailbag, we take a look at the science. Plus, an interview with age grouper Mark Evans. The former submariner survived a terrible collision with an intoxicated driver during the 70.3 World Championships in Utah in 2022. Hear about how he managed to stay positive and come back to training and racing with his incredible mindset.
