25: Josh Mathe: I, Athlete

June 22, 2017
00:0000:00

You are an athlete. Yes, YOU.  In 2012, I published a book with the subtitle "You can be a Triathlete. Yes, You."  And when I talked with Josh Mathe, I realized that he is cut from the same cloth in his beliefs.  

His new book, "I, Athlete" talks about awakening that ATHLETE inside of all of us - whether to acheive massive goals, or to just be the best version of ourselves. I really enjoyed this chat with Josh Mathe. Get inspired with his outlook, upbeat attitude and sage wisdom on all the things---yes, even medititation.

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!

9: Bridget Quinn: Art and Life

May 3, 2017
00:0000:00

Art and women and women and art. Bridget Quinn is the author of Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order), which NPR’s Susan Stamberg calls “a terrific essay collection” with “spunky attitudinal, SMART writing,” marking the second time “attitudinal” has been used about Bridget's work (first: Kirkus Reviews, 1996). It is a book about 15 "underknown" women in the history of art, but it's also very much about perseverance and sticking with the hard things. Bridget's own story is woven into the biographies of the 15 women artists. In her life, as a young woman and now as someone who has entered the fifth decade, these women artists were lifelines for her: as inspirations and role models. She calls their art "a balm to [her] soul." Summary: these women are a f*cking big deal even if history hasn't always recognized them enough."

Raised on the high plains of Montana with two sisters, six brothers, a devout mother and a WWII Marine father, in a home surrounded by cows and nuclear missile silos, today Bridget lives in San Francisco with her husband, two children, two dogs and a ridiculous number of bikes. She's a grateful denizen of that lively creative community, the San Francisco Writers' Grotto where she is co-host of the GrottoPod, a lively ongoing conversation on writers and writing: https://www.sfgrotto.org/craft/grottopod/

She's also a triathlete, mom and pretty much awesome person.

Enjoy the show!

5: Danielle Grabol: Fear No Distance

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

A long and hard race. The EPIC Danielle "Dani" Grabol is mind-boggling... in a good way. After developing "terrible eating habits" in her teen years and into her twenties, she had a rude health awakening. Losing her breath while walking up a small flight of stairs, Danielle realized that her health was on a downward spiral and it was time to make a serious lifestyle change.

She then lost 70 pounds, became an ultra athlete, and not only that---she literally proved that she feared NO distance: she was the FIRST woman to complete Epic 5 (5 iron distance triathlons in 5 Days on 5 islands of Hawaii). She has shattered the stereotypes of females in ultra sports with this feat---not to mention she is also a double iron distance finisher (281.2-mile Double Anvil Triathlon), and the Race Across America (RAMM) (a bicycle race from coast to coast) 2-Person Female Record Holder. 

In her new book, Fear No Distance, Danielle opens up about overcoming injuries, and discovering the world of ultra bike racing and long distance cycling.  Her story is one of incredible grit and determination.

4: Kyle & Brent Pease: Together We Wheel

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

He's not heavy, he's my brother. If you think you can't do something, then think again. Kyle and Brent Pease 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 inspiring podcast, Meredith Atwood sits down with the brothers in a story that will inspire, awe and make you belly-laugh. 

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.

*Correction: The Pease Brothers did  IRONMAN Wisconsin in 2013 and then IRONMAN Florida in 2014. Meredith alluded to her competing in IRONMAN Florida the same year; correction in that it was Ironman 70.3 Florida for Meredith and she was confused. No misrepresentation, just a brain fart. :)

1: Gerry Halphen: Heart Rate Training

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

Heart rate & such. Have Heart! Meredith Atwood sits down with Gerry Halphen in her first solo podcast. Gerry Halphen is an IRONMAN athlete (IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship qualifier and competitor), coach, catalyst, life-changer and friend to talk about the burning (or should we say “beating”) question: “Why do we REALLY care about heart rate training?” 

Gerry was the man behind the infamous “Spark” that changed Meredith A’s life back in 2009.  A heart-warming episode with a good soul, it’s always a joy to tell old tales, think about new goals and keep things real with the Coach Formerly known as “Coach Monster.”

Show Highlights
In this episode, Gerry and Meredith A. discuss:

- what heart rate training really is and what's the point of it

- how does this impact new athletes

- how does going SLOWER actually make you FASTER

- what Kind of TIME FRAME does heart rate adaptation take 

- why we MUST incorporate the other end of the training zone (anaerobic)

- the best way(s) to determine your HR zones:

  • Inexpensive and non-testing way.
    Generic 220-age (Max HR), then percentage of that sets zones
    Example, a 33 year old female... would be 187, then: 
    Zone 1: 112-130 (60-70%)
    Zone 2:  131-149 (70-80%)
    Zone 3:  150-168 (80-90%)
    Zone 4:  169-177 (90-95%)
  • Field Testing / Resource:

  • Blood Lactate Testing
