    Episode 20 - Craig Percival

    Episode 20 - Craig Percival

    In this episode I talk with one of the most remarkable guys I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, Craig Percival.

    Craig has just completed something that has never been even attempted before let alone completed. He has completed 8 full distance Ironman Triathlons, in the 8 states/territories of Australia in 8 days. WOW. My head still shakes even thinking about this undertaking.

    He has completed well over 20 Ironman Triathlons and has competed at the Ironman World Championships on 4 occasions. He has completed Ultraman Canada, qualified for and finished a remarkable second at the Ultraman World Championships in Hawaii.

    Craig's message is simple and along the lines of a great sporting brand you may have heard of......JUST DO IT. Get up and get through the first 10 minutes of the training session, the race or even just the day and the rest will make itself happen. His other key message to take away from our conversation is to find YOUR WHY??

    His drive and determination to inspire others to achieve their goals can be seen in the flesh with his very own coaching business, www.nolimitsendurance.com.au. Craig's support and care for his athletes is second to none and the results his athletes achieve speak for themselves. If you are looking for an amazing coaching experience to elevate you to the next level get in contact with him.

    Throughout the 8in8in8 he raised well over A$80,000 for the John Maclean Foundation, an awesome organisation that aims to make the lives of young Australians who use wheelchairs. John himself came out and supported the event right through and I was honoured to be able to have a chat with him and the amazing work he does with young Australians. www.jmf.com.au

    Thanks to the Shaun and the team at Temple Nutrition who look after all my racing, training and nutritional needs. They want me to extend a fantastic offer for you next purchase of 30% off. Check them out. They are the business at www.templenutrition.com.au

    Welcome to 2016. This year will be the most successful year of your life to date. Take some time to set some big goals for yourself that you know will make you grow into a better, happier and more fulfilled person!! This week I sat down with and amazing young guy who through circumstances out of his control found himself in his young 20's having to stop and re-assess in which direction wanted his life to go. Lincolne has a passion for learning and growing like I've never before seen in someone of his age and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting down and talking with him about his past, how he tackles everyday and I think most importantly what he plans to do in the future. Please send him an email and let him know your thoughts on the episode. lincolneinnis@gmail.com Until next week Keep moving Keep going forward and Keep kicking goals.

    Podcast Episode 18 - Andrew "Reidy" Reid

    Podcast Episode 18 - Andrew "Reidy" Reid

    This week I had the pleasure of catching up with Andrew "Reidy" Reid.

    I've been following Reidy's amazing journey for a while now on Instagram and Facebook and after he cracked his 3 hour for the marathon for the first time he was true to his promise of coming on and having a chat.

    Reidy's story will sound familiar to a few others we've heard with losing a stack of weight and finding who he truly is through competing in endurance sports and following his dreams. Reidy is the perfect example for someone living with a purpose. He gets up everyday with a passion for what he is doing and has a crack. He now runs his own event, The Bondi Splash 'n' Dash, works in radio for 2GB in Sydney, works with the Lifeguards at Bondi and is a star on the hit TV series Bondi Rescue which is about to start filming its 11th season in Australia.

    He doesn't take himself too seriously which I think is awesome and that comes across really quickly.

    If you want to follow Reidy he's on twitter at @reidy__ and on Instagram @reidy__

    I hope you enjoy this one. Its a cracking conversation that we had on a sunny summer morning in Sydney before I dropped down to Bondi for a swim myself.

    Until next week

    Podcast Episode 17 - Tim Ford

    Podcast Episode 17 - Tim Ford

    I sat down with Tim Ford for a chat around all things triathlon, weight loss, healthy lifestyle, goals and the future.

    Tim's journey has many similarities with myself and I am totally inspired by what he is achieving in the sport. The quote on his webpage sums Tim up best I think, My Extraordinary, Ordinary Life. He just gets about chasing his goals and along the way inspires others to get up and have a go at a goal they have in mind. He now coaches athletes towards their goals along with studying law full time and travelling up to Thailand to his second home of Thanyapura as often as he can. www.thanyapura.com.

    You can contact and follow Tim on Instagram @tford14 and please follow his blog at his website www.oztriathlete.com. There's some awesome articles up there particularly for those at the beginning of their triathlon, running or multisport journey.

    Remember Temple Nutrition? These are the guys I am working with to help me to my goal of completing the 2016 Ultraman Australia Championships. Check them out at www.templenutrition.com.au and pop in the code 'mcdermott10' at the checkout for a 10% discount of your order.

    Please keep sharing with your friends and if you have any ideas for shows, blogs, feedback or complaints please email me at greg@zeal2u.com.au.

    Podcast Episode 16 - Luke Tyburski

    Podcast Episode 16 - Luke Tyburski

    This week I had the absolute privilege of chatting with Luke Tyburski. Luke's whole view on life and his amazing adventures could mean I could honestly talk with him for days on each of his individual adventures.

    We focus on his story of the Ultimate Triathlon that he recently completed and also touch on some of his other amazing achievements including the Marathon Des Sables, his first ever triathlon The Double Brutal Extreme Triathlon (yes this was his first ever triathlon) and his experience learning to surf by riding 400kms to reach the coast before learning to surf the very next morning.

    Like many of us Luke hasn't always this motivated, goal driven and generally happy. If you're in a bit of a spot right now where you're not totally happy then I'm sure Luke's story will help you to grow and overcome your struggles.

    Luke's Hula Hoop theory is one we can all take something from. Throw it where you can't see it anymore, find it and move yourself back into the middle again. The further you throw it the bigger the adventure.

    You can find Luke at www.luketyburski.com and he would love to hear your feedback.

    Until next week

    Podcast Episode 15 - Annie Crawford

    Podcast Episode 15 - Annie Crawford

    This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Annie Crawford. Annie is the chair and founder of Can Too Australia, an organisation formed to help regular people achieve some seriously big goals and also fund the research of cancer.

    Annie lost her father to bowl cancer at the young age of 51 and she set out on a course to help fund the research of the disease along with inspiring others that the impossible is indeed possible. The organisation was born and has now trained over 11,000 people to achieve their goals and raised of A$16m for cancer research. It's remarkable that the organisation has achieved this is such a short space of time and I believe this is simply due to the drive and passion of Annie.

    This is a wonderful chat about Can Too, the goals for the future along with Annie's personal achievements in both running and swimming.

    You can find Can Too at www.cantoo.org.au and please have a good look at their program options if indeed you're looking at a running,swimming or triathlon event that's coming up. The program is FREE. thats right, FREE. All you need to do is get a few mates on board to sponsor you for some fundraising and you're away.

    Temple Nutrition are still running their offer for all of our listeners of a 10% discount. www.templenutrition.com.au and enter the code "mcdermott10" at the checkout.
    I've had a great week of extensively using their products and without solid food on a 6 hour ride I felt full of energy when finishing. I even remarked that I could've done another couple of hours on the bike i felt that good. Check them out.

    Until next week

Had the privilege of appearing on an early podcast with Greg whilst I was still in hospital and since then have made his Podcast a weekly must listen too.

The Inspiration you'll receive from week to week with the people who've had differing journeys and life experiences will change your outlook on life.
