    210. Nikki Hiltz, Professional Runner

    210. Nikki Hiltz, Professional Runner

    Today I’m talking with Nikki Hiltz, professional runner and recently named lululemon global ambassador! There’s so much to unpack with Nikki — their experience with ending a contract, which resulted in selling Track Club T-shirts, selecting their new sponsor and so much more. We dive into Nikki’s focus on having a sponsor that supports their next move - including the first ever in-person Pride 5K event.

    We also talk through Nikki’s experience with coming out as gay in 2016 and transgender in 2021, including the different reactions that came with both experiences. I so appreciated Nikki’s openness and perspective, one that will help so many stepping into their truest selves and trust their gut during even the toughest #hurdlemoments

    209. Ty Haney, Founder of Outdoor Voices & Try Your Best

    209. Ty Haney, Founder of Outdoor Voices & Try Your Best

    Season TEN, what is going on! Excited to welcome Ty Haney to the show to kick things off. In 2013, she was a 24-year-old Parsons School of Design grad living in New York, pitching investors on the idea for her approachable activewear idea called Outdoor Voices. Quickly, the brand caught on and became way more than just apparel. It became a lifestyle choice of #doingthings. After 7+ years of building, the Colorado native stepped down, but it wasn't long before she was back to her entrepreneurial  roots with Try Your Best, a first of its kind, Web3 community platform where brands and fans build and win together. 

    For episode 209, we're talking about it all: What it felt like to walk away from O.V., how movement is an imperative part to her creative process, and why we should ALL be thinking about Web 3. Plus: WHAT is Web 3 (in language that we can all understand), as well as the ins and outs of Joggy — a line of plant-based energetics aimed at offering that euphoric "runner's high" feeling on demand.

My best commute companion!

I have been wanting to leave a review for this show for a long time now; as I was waiting to understand if there was something I didn’t like about it, to be sure to leave a balanced review. Well, I’ve been religiously listening for the past 2 seasons, and I just can’t wait to dive in season 10!!!
Are you a runner? Regardless of the answer, this podcast will be the right one for you. Why? Because the best experts on nutrition, sport, tech, psychology, financial wellness, business, travel (and of course running) are all here to share their tips, to explain difficult concepts, to dive deep into “taboo” topics, all while making you feel as if you were just getting a coffee with them.
The idea of “getting over a hurdle” just resonated so much when I started listening, and the more I listened to episodes, the more I felt like it was a safe space to understand, to think, and to re-evaluate my next steps (yep, it’s been this transformative!). I started journaling because of Emily’s approach to it (much easier than anything else I read about). I got a personalized pair of sneakers to have a kick-off motivational start to my running journey; I started organizing my finances… the cherry on top was the episode where the neuroscientist explained the relationship with food and sleep and the impact o our brain and viceversa. Emily always makes sure to have guests that know what they are talking about!
I also love the different formats: the interview episodes vs the 5 minutes friday for example: it gives me the chance to select an episode based on how much time I have for my commute (or whatever else I might be doing).
So, what are you waiting for? Give the hurdle a listen!

Incredible podcast!

This podcast is a must listen for anyone looking to expand their mindset, find joy, and live their best life! Emily is a wonderful host and each of her conversations with guests is truly inspiring.
