INTERVIEW WITH "MODERN FAMILY'S"
JULIE BOWEN AT
NAUTICA MALIBU TRIATHLON
Mitch Thrower: We're back at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, and I'm here with Julie Bowen. Julie, how is your day?
Julie Bowen: It's a little nerve wracking. I've never done this before, and I am doing the run portion. And I just gave birth to twins. So, this is kind of exciting.
Mitch Thrower: Wow, twins. How long ago did you give birth to twins.
Julie Bowen: Just over three months.
Mitch Thrower: Three months ago, and you're running in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon today?
Julie Bowen: Yeah. I'm--I need to actually go pump a little. I'm breastfeeding still, and this whole situation is a little overwhelming. I'm not really seeing any good place to do that. So, we might just wing it.
Mitch Thrower: Well, congratulations on making that decision.
Julie Bowen: Thank you.
Mitch Thrower: It's quite a recovery. Did you find the recovery was a good part of training in triathlon?
Julie Bowen: I--well, I was training for the L.A. marathon just before I had the twins, and I got to 20 miles and tore the labra in my hip. So, this is all just sort of coming back again. I'm just slowly getting into my retraining. I have no idea how today's going to go. I'll be honest with you.
Mitch Thrower: Awesome. Well, I'll be out there on the run course with you, so I'll wave and--.
Julie Bowen: --Oh, really? Whose team are you on?
Mitch Thrower: I'm actually on Team 10, and I'm waiting for 10. I know, Team 10, exactly.
Julie Bowen: Wait. But, who--.
Mitch Thrower: We all just met--.
Julie Bowen: --[Unintelligible]--.
Mitch Thrower: --We all just met today. So--.
Julie Bowen: --Oh, really?
Mitch Thrower: Yeah.
Julie Bowen: You just got thrown in together?
Mitch Thrower: We just got thrown in.
Julie Bowen: And you'll be running?
Mitch Thrower: And I'm going to be running. We're going to be running.
Julie Bowen: You're competitive, though.
Mitch Thrower: I think you're going to beat me.
Julie Bowen: No, dude. Look at you. You're like tan and fit, and like I haven't seen the outdoors in a while.
Mitch Thrower: But, you just manufactured two people. So, that makes up for it.
Julie Bowen: I know. I did. Didn't I?
Mitch Thrower: Yeah.
Julie Bowen: I made two people. How many of you made two people three months ago, huh?
Mitch Thrower: Awesome. Well, good luck from Competitor and Triathlete TV.
Julie Bowen: Thank you. Thank you very much.
