60: Chrissie Wellington: To The Finish Line with a 4-Time IRONMAN World Champion

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...

42: Rob Jones: Double-Amputee & a Month of Marathons

October 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Rob Jones: Double-Amputee Marine is Training to Run 31 Marathons in 31 Days in 31 Cities.

"I grew up on a farm in the small town of Lovettsville, Virginia. I graduated from Loudoun Valley High School in 2003, and from Virginia Tech in 2007.  In my junior year at Virginia Tech, I joined the Marine Corps Reserve as a combat engineer at Bravo Company, 4th Combat Engineer Battalion in Roanoke, VA. In the Marine Corps, combat engineers are responsible for a multitude of disciplines but the primary role that I and my fellow combat engineers undertook was the use of explosives, and the detection of buried IEDs and weapons caches. 

"I deployed to Habbaniyah, Iraq in 2008, and again to Delaram/Sangin, Afghanistan in 2010. During my deployment to Afghanistan while operating as a part of a push into Taliban territory, I was tasked with clearing an area with a high likelihood of containing an IED. It was in this capacity that I was wounded in action by a land mine. The injury resulted in a left knee dis-articulation and a right above knee amputation of my legs. 

"I was taken to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD for the initial phases of my recovery, which consisted primarily of healing and closing my wounds. I was then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center for the remainder of my rehabilitation. At Walter Reed I was fitted with prosthetics, and worked very hard to learn how to walk with two bionic knees. I also used the time to relearn how to do other things with my new challenge including riding a bicycle, running, and rowing. I took naturally to rowing, and since I am always in search of a challenge that I can use to become better, I decided to train for the 2012 Paralympics.

"After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in December, 2011, I immediately moved to Florida to train with my rowing partner, Oksana. We spent five months there, and during that time period won the trunk and arms mixed double sculls trial race held by USRowing to become the USRowing national team for our boat class, and also won the Final Paralympic Qualification Regatta in Belgrade to qualify for the Paralympics. We then moved to Charlottesville, Virginia to continue training until the Paralympics in September, 2012. Our hard work paid off for us as we brought home a bronze medal in our event. I continued in the sport of rowing through the 2013 season, where my partner and I placed 4th in the 2013 World Rowing Championships.  

"On October 14, 2013 I began a solo supported bike ride across America which started in Bar Harbor, Maine, and ended in Camp Pendleton, California.  The ride was 5,180 miles long and completed on April 13, 2014, a total of 181 days after it began.  Over the course of the ride, along with my team, I raised $126,000 for the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, and Ride 2 Recovery, three charities which aid wounded veterans.

"Between Fall 2014, and Summer 2016, I trained in the sport of triathlon with the intention to compete in the 2016 Paralympic Games.  I saw considerable personal improvement, but was unable to qualify.

"Currently I am planning to complete a month long back to back marathon challenge in which I will run 31 marathons in 31 days in 31 different major cities, once again raising awareness and funds for wounded veteran charities.
