    This episode is a follow-up to the original episode on Micro Quitting. If you're new around here (welcome!), listen to episode 24 or 74 first and then come back here.

    I get this question quite often:  how do I know if I’m micro quitting or just listening to my body?

    91. MVP Episode: Redefine Failure with Skye Moench

    Coming in hot with an MVP episode this week! Tune in to listen to my conversation with Pro Triathlete Skye Moench.

    She's accomplished so much since this episode was originally released and I have no doubt she would agree so much of that is because of how she's upleveled her mind in racing to match the level she has to race at physically.

    89. Reigniting JOY with Maggie Rusch

    Tune in to this week's episode for a special conversation with Maggie Rusch!

    Not only is Maggie the overall female winner of Ironman Tulsa 2022, she's also a rad human with a story that reminds us that you can start from where you are to create the racing experience you want to have. From amateur to pro and back to amateur again, Maggie is doing exactly that and reigniting her joy along the way!

    In the episode we cover:

    - The importance of milestones and markers of progress, regardless of whether you are pro or amateur

    - Kona as the pinnacle for age groupers

    -Her struggles with comparison and imposter syndrome: "how do I benchmark my performance against these super humans?"

    -Her resiliency through set backs and how that build self-belief in what's possible

    -The difficulties in letting her pro card go and the gift in that challenge
     
    -How we can give ourselves permission to learn and grow at all levels

    -What we think about past pros racing in the amateur field

    -And a run down of her race at Ironman Tulsa! (Not only did she win overall female, she was 9th overall with the men!)

    Enjoy!
