Will not be accurate. I've been doing this morning one years I've interviewed Eric Byrnes countless times as a player and an analyst I've never been more excited then tonight because the documentary. It was incredible the trailer looks brilliant. Eric thanks for the timing congratulations in advance here. Did feedback went it one over I think it was. It was an opportunity the other I had an incredible are needed to break last year called legends is Does your studio bill which all we were out during the race and really trying to document the whole.
It made it terrific job which it is on double bill best doubles in all basically one not. It was all the judges' choice award the mark film festival is back in be December but it got to sit. Call it appears to be a part of Mike that was as bought out bought. You know first off I watch a lot of documentaries and I love documentaries and Netflix and all these different avenues now Amazon prime give us easy access with our remotes even if there.
Voice activated to go one and find a documentary lot of people like rock documentaries. Whatever it is motivational documentaries what I love about this is the way it was filmed. And they got you out on the trails in the trailer says. When athletes go from being in professor of professional than you go to retire. It's like you're dragon slayer but you don't have a dragon to go after any more what motivated you to get out on to these courses and become an endurance run.
It's so I want aptly will struggle when they get done right they're trying to figure out what act and for me. When I act on it work is I was ball and everyday Ellis served an average day Alice in slope it's merely saw all on Wednesday night for the Dutch news.
Politicking that my boy and an Alice constable and you don't I think after awhile though. You that you are doing something the highest level right if you're when you're the best athletes in the world or at least not that we in the world.
Your sport in Brittany Ellis or you know to do that baseball. So it is automatically there's going to be an important there's not much you stratosphere effort we know what that. You would think there it is very rare for an athlete or something and the first try out or did you that you.
I sort you know I showed up. I had it was is like running on a weekend it was a year or couples junior high to a record on I showed up cowboy round in the water. I was writing a beach cruiser provide life. And then I ran a couple thousand board sure it. It got to the point where I'm like you know. This is what I wanted to do and it it is funny because it was like one sprint triathlon basically let. Getting that ended the Iron Man world and you don't got done right now and that slowly transitioned all the way.
Due to an all America bargain and I think you know the common question again. It's like what's wrong what you don't like total white wire you do mean as part kicking back you'll enjoy your retirement or whatever help.
And the point being that big yeah like I've. I quoted this thing resolved by a great deal it is what I have a passive partner of the white born October L a actors that. And I don't think like are called light. It it doesn't matter it's either there there and other special flatly. Get done ignored it someone who just aren't there any sort transitional period. I in Asia I find what.
Will it motivate you find what is your blood won't find what it would actually you know really you're injured at Gruntal and don't. And that that's what is you know that that's what all America aren't in any or all of those. Our burns is our guest the journeys amazing the documentary.
Eric what's interesting to me talk about that at times in your baseball career you didn't run more than four miles a day the way you were able to stretch a single into a triple was amazing and you always laid out in the outfield the dive for balls.
In the gap would take. Behind the scenes when you're a hundred mile race in your and mile or fifty what mine games coming to your head when you start to feel. The pain and you understand you've still got to go double than what you've done so far and the game in your mind is something you then have to date. Yeah I think that your normal that now I understand it.
The western is started as a horse race and won here there's participant boarding slate is fortunately. So all he decided that it was a marathon runner any show up on the start line with no horse and he said I'm gonna try to run that.
He would train or whatnot the whole concept at the finish within 24 hours. So Gordy took off. Bad you know they'll look at all hot and that exist not because if you had told me it and it doesn't go back and you're right when I first heard about it.
I wouldn't bet that like there's no chance that whatever you. And in again what I would be looking at someone else like speaker not comprehend or understand it. And then you look through. This as possible and part of like it either but the re delighted possible these because.
A couple of gaga the premise support running which is one foot in front of the other and it's not any different. Don't worry you're doing TV it you know I don't know if you actually get a lot of people out how to go on the air talk for hours. It is not you get if you look at what it hired you you're steering committee. Right and then at the same thing on television where I played Major League Baseball.
But like yank it I guess is a process. And so it is coolest thing about endurance work that it is good analogy why are crazy and someone had told me they got a raw deal. To actually pace in the race is that. And it got what is based wartime Jacqui just finishing it rappers get get time I had the opportunity to read the paper page Jamal. I just like to meet ya but basically that you're gonna live light hearted ads if you think about what that means and it just adds a lot of it's a lot down as a lot of emotion.
And it's a rollercoaster. But those people who say get your life. Limit the most successful team by no I don't the world are relatively unaffected by outside circumstances right into the same thing with their way. Anyway yeah I don't have a lot of what I'm on it. No I do I do actually I do wanna do that is only a few of the wanna go rapid fire on a couple. I saw Lance Armstrong in the trailer what's your relationship like with him obviously he's trying to heal mentally in his life for his past transgressions he's a ultimate superior athlete once second original about it.
What they did this to me because we're Atlanta it. It again I don't have any hard or preconceived notions of land where I gotta I dropped into Atlanta playing at all. And immediately at the time he was he was and also running and we start talking about. I'd mention that I I just got in the west today. And that you know we're not Alter rotting in town and that you're small little local ways to cope with rebel northern California and then you know playing call him.
Grab a couple awkward pocketbook trash. Acting you know we're he'd like it you gotta cover that race tomorrow. I should have been that Jack built here that the governor run his race be tomorrow. And there but your video. I did that I am a few weeks before and I like I am not prepared lumping it all the darling Israel. Dad I'm like OK I can vibrate tomorrow. You what I that you that you meet thirty minute.
Playing for X amount of dollar that it wasn't feet. And we kept running record I don't know that we are going to add if I let go. You're up there we battle it on the court. It was Coker and outback where you're coming back. And I'll try to like I didn't pay it out loud yeah that winning that raised there and it was like three hours.
And then I doubt on the that was in sport you know I came like three hours and 23 minutes. There are so funny because when I came here and act I'd wanna raise corporate guy that was pretty.
Pretty close I know I'm like it was up what we're doing great. He actually is that you have a lot you it was so. Don't we got it. We got a lot more to get through automatic Tom I want to come out and sit down with you personally and new podcast on this and go on a real deep dyed a dog Bob blown away.
By the trailer I'm gonna see the documentary this weekend on wall behind this whenever I can do to help you promote and tonight I didn't know this about gee I didn't know you would this deep. And had this inside you now and the next stage your life it's going to be fun to cover.
