Cheryl Haworth is a 3x Olympian in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. While does not consider herself a pioneer of women’s weightlifting, most everyone else does. Haworth was one of four Americans to compete in women’s weightlifting’s Olympic debut in 2000, and she was one of two to medal, earning bronze in the +75 kg. class at 17 years old in Sydney.

Before retiring in 2010, Haworth’s list of accomplishments included a bronze medal at the 2005 world championships, three Olympic appearances, a Pan American Games gold medal, three junior world titles and 11 national titles (the most by any U.S. woman).  For those reasons and more, Haworth was inducted into the USA Weightlifting Hall of Fame in 2015.

She is also the star of the documentary, Strong!

She now coaches weightlifting in Atlanta, Georgia and is a truly kind, compassionate and wonderful person. Enjoy this episode!

February 2, 2018
00:0000:00

For me, Chrissie Wellington is the epitome of heart, grace, athletic prowess, mental toughness and kindness. I was inspired by Chrissie from the second I entered the sport of triathlon--and I continue to be inspired by her to this day. 

Her new book, To the Finish Line : A World Champion Triathlete's Guide to Your Perfect Race, is available now. 

Another favorite episode.

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."

57: James Lawrence: The Iron Cowboy

January 12, 2018
00:0000:00

50 Iron distance races, 50 states, in 50 days. Meredith and James talk about some of the ups and downs of this incredible journey, the TEN YEARS of hard work that happened LONG before the 50-50-50, and Meredith asks him ONE question that he has NEVER been asked before. 

Repeatedly mocked for choosing a goal so big, Lawrence took on the challenge of doing 50 Ironman races, in 50 consecutive days, through all 50 US States. His journey will make you laugh, cry and possibly squirm in your seats in disbelief. James lives with his wife, Sunny, and their five children in Utah. After breaking several Guinness World Records, James wondered if he had truly found his mental and physical limits. He knew there was more. Experience firsthand the remarkable journey of James Lawrence and his family.

James is originally From Calgary, Alberta Canada. He grew up a wrestler and later in life became to love endurance racing to escape the hectic routine of Corporate America. After losing everything in 2008, James turned to his new found passion for triathlon racing and went on to break two world records within three years. In 2015 James accomplished the unthinkable despite everyone saying his end goal was impossible. He completed 50 Ironman distance triathlons, in 50 days, in each of the 50 United States -- The 50-50-50.

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.

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.
