104 - Sandi Nypaver has the Power to Control her own Happiness

Sandi Nypaver is an accomplished ultrarunner. She did her first 100 miler at 21 years old and has been on a running journey through life ever since. She recently qualified for the USA's Long Distance Trail Running Worlds team and was injured just days before the race. Most people (including a younger version of Sandi) would be demoralized and have trouble shaking that experience. But when I asked today’s Sandi how she feels about it, she said, “It’s all better…actually I think I’m now...


Mile Repeat 4 - Stacy Klontz was Doing Great and then Life Happened

Stacy grew up playing sports and being active, then life happened... Many years ago before Stacy found running After too many years of not focusing on herself, Stacy renewed her love of running in 2009 at the age of 45 - and went back to college that year as well. She started with a couple 5Ks, and then ran her first half marathon in June 2010, and her second half marathon just two weeks later. Today she has almost 50 half marathons, one full marathon, and many shorter distances under her...


103 - Gwen Jorgensen Gold Medal Mama

Gwen Jorgensen seems to have realized the true value of happiness – and she has set a path in life toward achieving it – happiness not success that is. The reason I say this is not because of what she says in the interview but how she lights up whenever she talks about anything that is bigger than herself, specifically her journey into motherhood. Gwen is an Olympic gold medalist in the sport of triathlon. She won 17 ITU World cup titles and a gold medal all in the span of 6 short years as...


102 - Maria Thomas' Life as a Puddle

I met Maria Thomas (of My Life as a Puddle) at the Truthteller Tour in Boulder earlier this year. We were both featured speakers sharing truths about ourselves that were not easy to share. It was an emotional night where the power of sharing painful truths was both liberating and an intense connector to others that we didn’t even know. After the event, Maria realized how sharing her story with others could help so many people, so she reached out and here we are. Maria’s story starts with...

101 - Katy Blakemore Evans is Not Your Typical Triathlete

I have known Katy Blakemore (now Evans) since she was 15 or 16 years old; a distance swimmer on the Longmont Redtails Swim Team where I was a coach before I started racing professionally. Katy was the hardest-working kid on the team, she was incredibly talented, and while she wasn’t the best swimmer in the world, she managed to will her way into walking on to Stanford’s Swim Team. I knew from the early days that she would probably become a triathlete someday. She just somehow had the...


100th Episode - The Best of the Best

You know when you love something so much that you don’t realize how much time has gone by? That’s exactly how I feel about this podcast. I wasn’t sure what would happen when I started. I just reached out to some amazing people to see if they’d come on my show and they did. My first episode was a short explanation of the podcast. The general preface was that I would interview visionaries and people making change in the world in the hopes that it would inspire others and bring us all closer...

98 - The Yogi Triathletes Got Rid of 95% of Their Stuff to Live More Vibrant Lives

Meet my old friends Jessica and BJ Gumkowski, the Yogi Triathletes. I first met them many years ago; in fact, Jessica was one of our very first Skirt Sports ambassadors back in 2005ish. At that time, they were a young married couple pursuing a life of triathlon, in the hyper-competitive town of Boulder, measuring their happiness by their successes on the race course and in the workplace. At some point along the way, an ad for tiny homes on BJ's computer screen sparked an "a-ha moment"...

Meet Clare Gallagher - renowned ultrarunner with several major wins including the 2nd fastest female time ever at the 2016 Leadville 100 mile race, first American to win the CC Ultra Marathon in the Alps in 2017, and more. The truly amazing thing is that she did all of this in the few short years after she graduated from Princeton in 2014! Yes – she is one of the fastest-rising athletes I’ve ever known. Think about it.

93 - Susie Rinehart Chooses Brave Over Perfect

If you’ve been listening to the podcast, you may have heard Episode 92 which was my Ode to Motherhood. This means you’ve already experienced a glimpse into the mind of today’s guest, Susie Rinehart, because I stole one of her quotes as my title, “We are right where we need to be.” Today’s episode with Susie is so full of incredible quotes that I could probably steal about 50 of them for future episodes (and maybe I will!). I think that when someone goes through a profound, life-changing...


92 - Nicole DeBoom - Right Where We Need to Be

Today I give an ode to motherhood on a few fronts. I recently interviewed Susie Rinehart (episode 93) and she said the phrase "I'm right where I need to be." It really resonated with me to the point where I realized that mantra can give comfort when you need comfort, appreciation when you deserve to celebrate, and peace across all experiences. I share some defining moments in my life, from the day I decided to change my life (to get pregnant) to some struggles I've faced as a parent to my...


91 - Kelly McNelis Says Embrace Your Messy life

Kelly McNelis is a community builder, an innovator, mom, wife, and more. Kelly has a very difficult past - she is an incest survivor who finally started processing her abuse and subsequently healing later in life. As she went through this process, she identified the stages that helped her heal most powerfully and realized that her path could help others; that sharing our stories both helps us heal and helps others feel less alone in the world. This realization resulted in Women For One, a...

86 - Ryan Boyle is Out Making Something of His Life

Ryan Boyle is a man who makes the choice every day to live a positive, optimistic life. At age nine, he was riding a big wheel at a friend’s birthday party, and he was hit by a truck and dragged down the street. He head injury was so traumatic that they actually had to remove part of his cerebellum because it was so damaged. He awoke from a coma two months later and defied all odds by first, surviving. What happened after that is nothing short of a miracle. And yes, we talk about miracles...
