"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."

How many times have you heard of a "dream job," an extraordinary athletic feat, or even a benevolent vocation that someone has and thought to yourself, "I Could NEVER Do That!" These people don't have superpowers, per se. These normal folks simply have a huge desire to do what it is they're doing and they ultimately have an unwavering faith that they can achieve their goals, no matter how big.

Remember, courage isn't the absence of fear. Courage is "going in" in spite of your fears. These are the stories of people who have gone in and fought hard to achieve the unthinkable in spite of the fact that, yes, sometimes they are scared and do have some insecurities. Are you ready to go in?

It's my hope that after hearing some of these interviews with thought leaders, artists, athletes, musicians and entrepreneurs that maybe you too will go from, "I Could Never Do That" to, "I Could Do That."

    Jeremy Bhandari - Author of "Trust the Grind: How World-Class Athletes Got To The Top"

    Carrie interviews first-time author and former ESPN staffer, Jeremy Bhandari, about his book, "Trust the Grind: How World-Class Athletes Got To The Top."
    Yes, most people think sports celebrities are super-human (and I swear many of them are), but how did they achieve such greatness? How did some of these athletes go from “lanky awkward teen” to MVP in the NFL or Olympian?  By adhering to strict principles - a few of which we’ll talk about today.
    There are also many who say, “I could never do that,” when it comes to writing a book, but it can be done and we’ll also talk about the process of book outlines, writing a manuscript, and finding a publisher - as a new author.
    So, if your goal is to get good -- nope --- GREAT at anything...Have a listen and let’s find out how the likes of Deena Kastor, Jimmie Johnson, Chipper Jones, Jason Kidd, and many others went about doing it.

    Sue Reynolds - From 335lbs to World Class Triathlete

    Sue Reynolds - From 335lbs to World Class Triathlete

    Sue Reynolds, author of "The Athlete Inside" talks candidly about how, in her late 50s and early 60s, she lost 200 pounds and found an athlete hiding inside her body.
    From her first walk to the neighbor’s mailbox to finishing sixth (and first American) at the World Triathlon Championship, Reynolds discovered the joy of conquering fear and pride to find that the best version of herself had been there all along.
    100% of the book proceeds are going to USA Triathlon Foundation to help those with disabilities pursue their triathlon dreams.

    Kelly O'Mara, Editor-in-Chief of Triathlete Magazine

    Kelly O'Mara, Editor-in-Chief of Triathlete Magazine

    Kelly O’Mara, Editor-in-Chief of Triathlete Magazine, has been a contributor at Triathlete for a while and you may know her “Salty Triathlete” columns - a hilarious, often sarcastic look at some of our type A idiosyncrasies.
    Kelly took over the helm of Triathlete earlier this year when…you know…things were normal. We were scouting races, people wanted pool workouts, volunteers were allowed to take your clothes off, see your naked smelly body, and help you change in a changing tent amidst the hysterical mass of sweat and all sorts of bodily droplets — not any more.
    Her editorial calendar? Out the window. Correspondents at races? Nope. As an athlete herself, Kelly was also thrown into the abyss with the rest of us.
    What do you do when you’re the leading voice of a sport that was essentially left rudder-less?
    You connect, you adapt, and you use the resources you have to keep people engaged. The result? A product that is better than ever.

I Really Could Never Do R3

I enjoyed listening to Carrie and her guests reminisce about their recent Rim to Rim to Rim run in the Grand Canyon, especially because I completed a South to North Rim to Rim hike in May 2017 (that was tough enough!). Hiking below the rim is an amazing experience, as they confirmed. Great job on the completion and the podcast!

One caveat, though: The South Kaibab Trail has NO water on it for about seven tough miles. If you're fast and can run it in about two hours, then you might not need more than two liters of water. However, for us slower folks, three liters is the safe amount to carry (and a bottle filled with electrolytes helps, too), especially if it's hot. You can then fill up at the start of the River Trail if you're doing Rim to River to Rim or at Phantom Ranch if you're going Rim to Rim(s). Good hiking, y’all!

Mr.

I have known Carrie Sapp Barrett for well over 20 years, and I have seen her go from doing no physical exercise to morph'ing into a marathon runner, an ultra runner, a trail runner, a Iron Man triathlon finisher (multiple times!), an incredibly knowledgeable coach, a freelance writer, and most important of all - a woman who walks the walk she talks (or in this case, runs the run she talks!) "I Could Never Do that" is the most legit, inspiring and motivational podcast currently available that's out there! I truly enjoy every single podcast Carrie does, as her passion for life spills over beautifully into every show!

Sweet interviews to run with.
