27: Natalia Cohen: Losing Sight of Shore

July 7, 2017
00:0000:00

Grit, rowing, and 8,000 miles. Four women set out to row across the Pacific Ocean, from America to Australia. As they row over 8,000 miles during their nine months at sea, they must overcome extreme mental and physical challenges to make history. "Everyone has a Pacific to Cross."

Natalia Cohen is a writer, coach and motivational speaker and one of the women on the "Coxless Crew" who achieved the incredible feat and journey of this amazing row from America to Australia. The documentary, "Losing Sight of Shore" is a breath-taking account of the journey. 

One of the favorites on the Same 24 Hours Podcast - talking about "Fernando the Shark" and "Eduardo the Shark", rowing naked, and why the ocean really is the greatest resource and wonder we have.

26: Kyle and Brent Pease: Ironmen Times Three

June 30, 2017
00:0000:00

Bro. If you think you can't do something, then think again. Kyle and Brent Pease are BACK on the show, with the UPDATE from IRONMAN Boulder. Check out their full story on Episode 4 -(https://thesame24hours.podbean.com/e/4-the-pease-brothers/)

They are the ultimate "no excuses" brothers. Kyle was born with cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia, but that did not define anything in his life. Nothing stopped him or his brother, Brent, together from becoming IRONMAN triathletes. That's right - they completed an IRONMAN triathlon together (that's a race consisting of 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile marathon).

In this heart-warming and second inspiring podcast, Meredith Atwood sits down with the brothers in a story that will inspire, awe and make you belly-laugh. And then they flip the tables, and interview Meredith on her newest adventure with the Marine Corps Marathon coming in October of 2017, as a pusher for Team Logan. (More info here: https://www.crowdrise.com/team-logan-swim-bike-mom-meredith-atwood)

Through their Foundation, the Kyle Pease Foundation (KPF) creates awareness and raises funds to promote success for persons with disabilities by providing assistance to meet their individual needs through sports. Programs include scholarship opportunities, purchasing of medical equipment or adaptive sports equipment for others or contributing to other organizations that provide similar assistance to disabled persons as well as participating in educational campaigns to create awareness about Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. KPF will provide these services directly to individuals as well as to partner with other existing non-profit organizations to achieve these goals. 

Direct benefits will be limited to persons with disabilities who need adaptive sports equipment, mobility devices or medical care.

The Best Wrench in Atlanta:

We shared the love for Cannon Cyclery in this episode - Curtis Henry is the BEST local bike shop in the Atlanta area. Guess what? He also does VIRTUAL bike fits. Amazing guy and talent. He's a sponsor of the Best Tri Club Ever as well.

23: Scott Rigsby: Unthinkable & Making an Impact

June 16, 2017
00:0000:00

Double Amputee & Making an Impact. Scott Rigsby was 18 years old and looking forward to his first semester at college. He was riding in the back of a pickup truck in rural Georgia with his friends after a hard day of landscaping work. He was talking about sports and his plans for the weekend, when suddenly the truck was hit by a passing 18-wheeler. The force threw him underneath a 3-ton attached trailer while the vehicle dragged him over 320 feet. His back suffered third degree burns, his right leg was severed off, and his left leg hung barely intact.

Rigsby endured countless doctor and hospital visits, 26 surgeries and additional amputation. After almost 20 years of depression, fear and uncertainty, he decided to change his life and seek his purpose for living, fueled by a prayer that if God would open a door for him, he would go through it.  
That door opened, and a relentless and determined Rigsby arose and never looked back. On October 13, 2007, after enduring the elements for 16 hours and 43 minutes, Scott Rigsby became the first double amputee in the world to finish the Hawaiian Ironman triathlon with prosthetics at the 140.6-mile World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Rigsby used “swim legs” to navigate the difficult 2.4 mile ocean swim, “bike legs” to cycle 112 miles through the heat and gusting winds of the Big Island lava fields on a standard road bike and “run legs” to complete the marathon segment in darkness and intense pain. 
Scott’s journey to achieving endurance world records taught him many lessons about himself and the possibilities for others. He realized in order to fulfill his purpose, he had to help the physically challenged who endured similar circumstances but lacked the proper tools, support teams and mentorship.  

To expand his mission worldwide, Rigsby founded the Scott Rigsby Foundation.  Through his inspirational efforts, Rigsby remains true to his simple prayer:

Maybe they all can look at me and say, "You know what? Life is tough, but if this guy can make it, then I can make it." 

The Scott Rigsby Foundation

Founded in 2008, The Scott Rigsby Foundation, Inc. (SRF) is a Georgia nonprofit corporation dedicated to inspire, inform and enable individuals with disabilities to live a healthy, active lifestyle, and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Our primary goal is to promote the health and fitness of individuals with physical challenges by improving access to Prosthetic and Orthotic (P&O) care and resources, while supporting programs that advance prosthetic technology and empower individual lifestyle change. We desire to motivate individuals to set goals and cross their own personal finish lines.

19: Lesley Paterson: The Brave Athlete

May 27, 2017
00:0000:00

Abs and a$$-whooping. Lesley Paterson is a three-time world champion triathlete, professional mountain biker, coach, motivational speaker, reluctant fitness model and foul-mouthed Scotts lassie. Growing up in Scotland, Lesley was the only girl on the rugby team - when she was banned from playing with the boys with the arrival of boobs, she went after running and triathlon. Lesley went on to become a national champion in cross country and an international triathlete. With her husband, Dr. Simon Marshall, an international expert in mental toughness and exercise behavior change, Lesley owns Braveheart Coaching, a San Diego based company that trains endurance athletes to be faster and happier. Lesley's athletic journey is one of passion, grit, toughness and an unwavering 'Braveheart' spirit in overcoming obstacles. Lesley uses her on-camera training, media-ready personality, and accent to create meaningful as well as "entirely useless" content for endurance athletes (her words). :)  

Enjoy!
