    Well this episode slipped under our radar and had cheekily been sitting safely and unlistened to in our drafts! Argh, mark that down in our fail tally!



    Well, let us not wait any longer to share this magnificent voice with you all!



    Carla Papac will be a name you recognise if you are around the Surf Lifesaving scene of Ironman, where she won the Coolongatta Gold last year (2022)!



    We cover so much in this episode - from her childhood experiences in sport, journey with body image, and her experience living with (and recovering from) Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (REDs).



    She drops some incredible pieces of advice and we adored having her join us on The Waffle!

    Reflecting on life after Rugby with former Waratahs player Sam Wykes

    Reflecting on life after Rugby with former Waratahs player Sam Wykes

    Meet Sam Wykes, a former professional Rugby player for NSW Waratahs.

    After first connecting with Sam when working with the Waratahs during his final year of playing professional rugby it was clear that he had such a gift. He was always able to make others around him feel welcome, connected, and feel as though they belong.

    From rugby to retirement, Sam explores what this transition out of professional sport has looked like and what challenges it presents to both his everyday life and sense of identity. We absolutely adore how Sam was able to let us in on both the vulnerable side of this transition as well as a few funny unexpected struggles of life after sport. So be sure to tune in for those because they will be a hoot.

    To follow along on Sam's story head to his Instagram Here.

    From the tip to the toe of Australia: Running 150 marathons in 150 days with Erchana Murray-Bartlett

    Meet Erchana Murray-Bartlett the nutritionist, elite runner and now world record holder for the most consecutive marathons run by a female.

    A journey that spanned 6,300km from Cape York in Queensland all the way to Melbourne Victoria, in an effort to raise money for The Wilderness Society. A charity powered by thousands of Australians from all walks of life to support the world that makes all life possible and empower wildlife conservation.

    And ultimately this incredible feat raised $125,000!

    This mammoth journey from Australia's highest northern point to the southern city of Melbourne saw the 32 year old runner completing 150 marathons in 150 days.

    Erchana is an incredibly bubbly individual and we had so much fun talking to her about her experience and all the sweat, determination and hard work that went into this feat.

    Jemma Griffin: The passionate pillar of strength for Nedd Brockmans 4000km run across Australia

    Jemma Griffin: The passionate pillar of strength for Nedd Brockmans 4000km run across Australia

    Meet Jemma Griffin, the passionate pillar of strength and support for Nedd Brockmans arduous journey across Australia.

    A journey that spanned 4000km from Cottlesloe in Perth through the Nullarbor Plain all the way to Bondi in Sydney, in an effort to raise money for We Are Mobilise. A charity that aims to unite the youth of Australia to develop solutions and provide assistance for those experiencing homelessness.

    And ultimately this incredible feat raised 2.5 million dollars!

    As an exercise physiologist and an incredible runner herself, Jemma is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of running, exercise, and marathons. In this ep of the waffle, Jemma speaks eloquently about what it was like to organise, support, and experience this run, in an incredibly isolated place in Australia.

    Days upon days of long straight roads, a skyline of sparse bush, no trees, and little access to food and water - She speaks about how her relationship with Nedd, food, and body changed over the course of this journey. And how communication with her partner, the rest of the team, and most importantly herself was the key to this run's success.

    It's an incredibly raw and vulnerable account that we adored being able to listen to and bring to you.

    Rolling with recovery and rehab after injury with cyclist Nick White

    Rolling with recovery and rehab after injury with cyclist Nick White

    With our eyes glued to the screen for Le Tour de France, we couldn't help ourselves but lean into our cycling fanfare. Our guest on today's episode is the incredible Pro Cyclist Nick White, perhaps better known as 'Whitey'. Unfortunately while Whitey was overseas for a competition in the US he sustained an injury to his leg and had to be shipped back home to Aus to commence rehab. We are incredibly thankful he was able to come on and share his story with such vulnerability and authenticity. 

    He discusses his life, growing up, taking on this pro cycling career alongside his brother Liam, with a little bit of friendly sibling rivalry thrown in every now and then. He goes on to discuss the pressure that comes with sport at this level and how this pressure can compound and not only impact his relationship with food but his relationship with his body as well.

    If you're a cyclist, athlete, or everyday active individual that is looking to elevate their performance in training, competition, and/or life our team of professional Performance Dietitians are here to help - Click Here to connect and get started.
