Get back to the earth. Today's episode is with Jason Jaksetic, the lifestyle brand manager for Spartan Races.  What a great time talking about how he went from a trialete in Kona to a man hauling sandbags up mountains...for fun. LOVED this episode and looking forward to taking on a Spartan Race in 2018. Who's coming with me!?

48: Diane Berberian: Loss of Sight & Seeing Life

November 15, 2017
00:0000:00

Diane lost her vision, but that didn't stop her--in anything.  One of the most fascinating and inspiring interviews to do.  Diana is a woman who knows no limits. Living with Macular Degeneration (MD), Diane has become one of the most celebrated and successful female Ironman athletes in the sport. Never racing the same long distance course twice, Diane thrives on taming the challenges that the sport of Paratriathlon offers; earning her the nickname of “The Iron Maven”.

With the aid of a sighted guide, Diane has pushed herself to remain competitive in a sport that draws only the strongest of character to it – the Ironman; a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run.

Never one to settle, Diane set her sights on a new challenge and qualified for the USA National Paratriathlon Team in 2013. She earned the title of TRI6B National Paratriathlon Champion and the honour to represent her country at ITU Paratriathlon Worlds, where she placed 5th overall.She won the National Championship for Visually Impaired Females at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon in Washington, DC in October, 2014 then traveled to Wilmington, NC where she won the Para Division of the Beach 2 Battleship Half Ironman. That victory was the finishing touch on her long course competition career.

He's back!  We scheduled a podcast to talk about trail running and slow-packing, but as usual, Josh and I had a great chat about so much more:  why we (as humans) crack self-deprecating jokes, why trail running can feel scary, what goals are really about, and more.

46: Mike Reilly: The Voice of IRONMAN

November 3, 2017
00:0000:00

"You are an IRONMAN!" Anyone who has dreamed of that finish line has also dreamed of those words being shouted at their finish---and if you are very lucky, by the man himself, Mike Reilly.  Mike "called" Meredith into the finish at IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene in 2013, and Lake Placid in 2015 (receiving a smooch on the cheek in 2015 from her!). 

Enjoy this candid and fun interview with @IronmanVoice, THE Mike Reilly, where we get the scoop:

  • Where did "You are an Ironman" start?
  • How long has he been announcing races?
  • What is Mike's most memorable "call in"?
  • How does he stay so positive? 
  • Would he tell someone they "should" do an IRONMAN? 
  • What's a day in the life of an IRONMAN day?
  • What does Mike do outside of triathlon?
  • What does his grandson call him? 
  • How does he (or does he) pick which races he attends?
  • What races for 2018?
  • What's next for Mike
  • How YOU can tell Mike your story...

38: Louise Green: Big Fit Girl

September 14, 2017
00:0000:00

Fit. Fat. Thin. Plus-size. Body Positive. Diet-Culture. Fat Activism. What IS all this? Why is "food" such a volatile topic? Meredith and the amazing Louise Green --- two "big fit girls" talk about fitness, food, weight, stigma, triathlon and more.

In her book Big Fit Girl, Louise Green describes how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women and thus prevents them from improving their health and fitness. By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete—as well as showcasing similar stories from other women—Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same.

Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best for the plus-size athlete, how to set goals, and how to improve one’s relationship with food. And she stresses the importance of paying it forward—for it is only by seeing plus-size women in leadership roles that other plus-size women will be motivated to stop trying to lose weight and get fit instead.

34: John Kim: The Angry Therapist

August 25, 2017
00:0000:00

"My F*cking Feelings?" As he was going through an expired relationship, John Kim created a blog on Tumblr and titled his first post “My F*cking Feelings”. He named his blog The Angry Therapist and started to document his journey post divorce.

Even though he was a licensed therapist, John chose not to present himself that way. He wore t-shirts and jeans. He preferred the language of “me too” as opposed to “you should”. He blogged about his short comings, revelations, and his views on relationships, the self help business, and the world. He found CrossFit, bought a motorcycle, and started coaching people in unconventional ways.

The Angry Therapist has become greater than just John Kim. Today, it is a place to find support no matter where you are or what you’re going through. It’s a place where definitions of our common human struggles are based largely on experiencing life and allowing it to break and heal us, which is very different than labels applied by learning about suffering in text books. It is a growing team of therapists and life coaches all over the world- practicing transparency, living as the truest versions of themselves, continually growing, and in this process becoming Catalysts. It is also a school, teaching this new way of helping others and supporting them in that journey. It is a thriving community unlike any other. The Angry Therapist is a lifestyle.
