80: Mirna Valerio: Ultra-Running, Body Image, Bears, Oh My

July 5, 2018
00:0000:00

“I think that people are really having trouble grappling with the idea that fit comes in many forms and that people can still participate in athletics no matter what kind of body they have,” she says. “I want to continue sticking my big ass into places where people think I don’t belong. That has been the nature of my life—I’m going to do it and I’m going to do it proudly.” - Mirna Valerio

Mirna Valerio came to my house and we had a great time!  Also known as "The Mirnavator," she is a plus-size ultra-runner who has shaken things up in the running and ultra world with her body-positivity and activism for fitness at whatever place you are.

77: Shay Eskew: What the Fire Ignited

June 26, 2018
00:0000:00

Shay is an All American and World ranked triathlete, burn survivor with scars over 65% of his body and is a sought out national motivational speaker. Despite being told he'd never compete in sports again at the age of 8, Shay is living testament to "Anything is Possible": 4x Ironman, 4x member of Team USA, ranked top 2% of Ironmen worldwide and has competed in 8 triathlon world championships, including the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. His mantra has always been to not merely be a "finisher" but to be a "competitor." Last year, he finished 21st at the International Triathlon Sprint World Championships - all of this despite not being able to sweat on 1/3 of his body due to his scars and suffering from severe dehydration during each race.

Shay's story is a parent's nightmare - an innocent 8 year old set afire with gasoline by a neighbor's child. The severity of his burns resulted in the amputation of his right ear, years of rehab to regain use of his right arm after being permanently melted to his side, learning how to write left handed to resume attending school and the wearing of plastic orthotic braces for 3 years - including 35 surgeries over 30 years. Always the first to make light of his situation, Shay shares how having a detachable prosthetic ear can be quite entertaining, even when it pops off at unpredictable times.

His message underscores we all face adversity, some physical, some mental, but "everyone has a story" and it is how we embrace adversity that defines who we are. Shay truly believes getting severely burned as a child was a blessing and served as a motivator to excel in athletics and become a top 1% income producer. It's hard to imagine a kid who cried himself to sleep at night for years due to being compared to Freddy Krueger would one day be an extremely successful sales executive. "It's all about being memorable" Shay tells his audiences.

Shay is well-known in the national triathlon community. He was selected as 1 of 6 nationally most inspiriting stories in the 2012 Ironman Kona Inspired contest and featured during the NBC Broadcast of the 2012 Ironman World Championships. He was also featured as the amateur male athlete in the 2012 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and as a feature cover story "Forged by Fire" in the 2012 USA Triathlon Olympic Preview issue. Shay is also a sponsored triathlete and a member of the Ironman Foundation/Newton Running Triathlon Ambassador team.

What a refreshing conversation with the amazing Jeffrey Davis. Jeffrey is a speaker, author, founder of Tracking Wonder & Brand Artistry Labs. "Wonder is your surprising advantage," Jeffrey says.

You don’t have to surrender or suppress your curiosity. Whether you’re an executive, professional, creative, or entrepreneur, you are a storyteller. And you don’t have to sacrifice your big idea in pursuit of profit. Forget about choosing between being “responsible” or living a fulfilling life. You can do both. Today, we live in a world where you can build a meaningful business and life while also making a living and a difference.

We talk about mostly parenting, creativity and life... but such a great time with this amazing Wonder. :)

59: Another Mother Runners: Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea

January 25, 2018
00:0000:00

The Mother Runners are here! Founders, mother runners and inspiration behind "Another Mother Runner" - the virtual aid station for all runners--near and far, moms and not, new and "old," and inspiration abounds. Authors, social media entrepreneurs, podcasters and more. Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell - so much fun! Enjoy the show!

Books:

Tales from Another Mother Runner, Run Like a Mother (2010) and Train Like a Mother (2012),

"For a woman, being a mom and a runner aren't always complementary identities. In fact, when you add a career, partner, and possibly even a social life to the mix, finding time for all of it can be as challenging as tiptoeing across your child's room in the middle of the night without stepping on a Lego."

43: Down Syndrome: Three Moms Making a Difference

October 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Down Syndrome: three moms (Michelle, Leslie, and Dori) talk with Meredith about their kiddos, families and "law syndrome." The biggest take away from this episode for me was the fact that Down Syndrome individuals are REALLY just like us... truly. Listen more to these women tell their stories---such a great episode. Approximately one in every 700 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome, making Down syndrome the most common chromosomal condition. At NDSS you'll find an introduction to Down syndrome and an overview of related facts, myths and truths and our preferred language guide.

Law Syndrome:
Law Syndrome affects 100% of people with Down syndrome.  It’s a series of antiquated laws that impede the pursuit of a career or living independently without risking Medicaid benefits. Help us fix the law and end #LawSyndrome

41: Ally Faber: Treacher Collins Syndrome & Nolan

October 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Ally Faber is the mom to Nolan, who has a rare genetic syndrome known as Treacher Collins. This was an incredibly positive, uplifting and heart-warming episode.

Ally writes, "Nolan is the best thing to have ever happened to our family and he's transformed the way I view life. I'm a married, vegan Oregon momma of TWO boys who decided to embark on a minimalism journey this calendar year for financial freedom, a healthier emotional state and a less wasteful and more conscious life as a consumer. I long to own less so that we can do more as a family."
