Welcome to my podcast Run This World! I'm a former pro athlete turned entrepreneur who believes in the power of positivity. I feature visionaries who are creating change in the world; people who will inspire you to create positive forward change in your own worlds. The premise of the show is that you will listen to it when you’re out on a training run. The average 5k time is 36 minutes 38 seconds – that’s an 11:47 minute per mile pace. Each interview will be roughly long enough to get you through your 5k run and leave you with enough inspiration to get after it again next week.

    170 - Let's Just Go to the Workshop - How the Breuner Twins Restarted a Furniture Empire

    170 - Let's Just Go to the Workshop - How the Breuner Twins Restarted a Furniture Empire

    Heidi and Gretchen Breuner are identical twins who live next door to each other and work side by side. They've always been best friends (except for that one time that Heidi etched "I'm mad at Mom and Gretchen" in the windowsill in second grade) and they've always supported each other. What makes their current story so amazing is that it happened by accident.

    Overnight, Heidi's exciting startup, Swap T's, went bust when coronavirus hit and shut down schools. It was an interactive tee shirt company that encouraged connection and communication with kids aged K-2. From the first distribution of tees at a school, it was obvious that the concept was working when the shyest kid in the class was suddenly engaged with the others as they excitedly shared stories about their patches. In fact, Swap Ts had so much potential that Heidi's husband quit his job and Gretchen started working with her too.

    So when schools closed, and the business had no future before it had really even taken off, Heidi and her husband did what they always did in times of uncertainty - they went into the workshop. That day, unknowingly, they reignited the flame of their iconic family business - Breuners Furniture - a business that had been shut down due to a long ago family feud.

    Their story is exactly what we need right now.

And we had so much fun that I vowed to get her on my show when the time was right. So when the pandemic struck and we were thrust into new roles as stay at home parents and virtual workers, I decided Sara was exactly who I needed to chat with. What I love most about her is that she truly is her authentic self every day. By being unashamedly true to herself, she gives other women the permission and freedom to do the same.

    168 - Trust the Process with Superstar Runner Neely Spence Gracey

    168 - Trust the Process with Superstar Runner Neely Spence Gracey

    Neely Spence Gracey is not only a superstar runner, she's a superstar person. I met Neely many years ago at the Skirt Sports Half Marathon. She was a young, aspiring runner who was fortunately unsponsored at the time and looking for a training race. I gave her a skirt and a free entry and she won the race handily! I felt like she was a baby just getting ready for a big adventure.

    Today Neely has a baby! She's also an Adidas sponsored athlete, a world class marathoner, and a hands-on, passionate coach of runners of all levels. I have always appreciated her positive outlook, something that I think we need now more than ever. 

    Today we talk about:

    Becoming a runner
    Breakouts, Burnout & Comebacks
    The importance of changing things up
    Her untraditional start to marriage
    Coaching the coach
    Pregnancy and running
    "Life as you know it will end. 100% But for the better"
    Positive mindset power
    And so much more

He got into the sport of triathlon and fell in love with the lifestyle. And he still loves it today - deeply and passionately. Mike became an announcer by accident and we're lucky he did. He's one of the best people on the planet and if you ever have the chance to be called across a finish line by him, all I can say is soak it in.

    166 - Embracing the Suck with Olympian Katie Hoff

    166 - Embracing the Suck with Olympian Katie Hoff

    Katie Hoff is a swimming legend. She swam at the world level from the age of 15 when she qualified for her first Olympics (2004) until 2015 when she retired, a move that was accelerated by a rare issue that caused blood clots in her lungs. Because they weren't diagnosed immediately, the remaining scar tissue caused her lungs to function at less than 100%, decidedly not good enough to compete at the world level any longer. After retirement, Katie has gone through all the emotions, trials and tribulations that a world class athlete could deal with while searching for her purpose beyond the pool. She is a work in progress, and the lessons she shares are relevant to all of us, no matter what age and stage we're in.

    As a former swimmer, I loved connecting with Katie. I could relate to her drive, work ethic, total immersion in all things swimming, the highest highs and the lowest lows. Of course I could only relate at a fraction because Katie was literally the best swimmer on the planet at one point. But here's the magic that Katie delivers. Even though she was at the very top echelon of a sport many people are afraid of, the lessons she has learned can transcend into anyone's lives.

    Today we talk about:

    How one becomes the best swimmer in the world
    Competitive drive from a very young age
    Homeschooling: some advice for parents who are now homeschooling due to coronavirus
    All the things that come with competing at the highest level: Pressure, patience, hard work, motivation, learning to listen to your gut, passion, obsession & more
    Fast rise: competing in the Olympics at age 15
    Why a silver medal didn't feel complete
    Coming back and stopping short: Blood clots in her lungs
    Embracing the suck: Why this philosophy will get you the results you want
