    Episode 7 | Colleen Quigley On Making Big Changes And Moving Forward From Injury Heartbreak (LIVE from WHOOP's NYC Pop-Up)

    This week's guest is Colleen Quigley for the first-ever "More Than Running" podcast live show at WHOOP's pop-up in New York City. We talked a lot about all of the recent changes in her life, which I related to a lot because I've made big changes and moved within the past year. We have a lot in common. She's so fun, honest and open talking about her injuries, the decision not to compete at the Olympic Trials, dealing with the disappointment, moving forward, getting healthy and setting lofty goals for 2022. I hope you all enjoy this conversation since it was super fun being in front of a live audience and I hope to do it again soon.

    Episode 6 | 20x Paralympic Champion Tatyana McFadden On Her Advocacy For Disabled Athletes

    Episode 6 | 20x Paralympic Champion Tatyana McFadden On Her Advocacy For Disabled Athletes

    "I feel like if we could parallel in sports with Paralympics and marathons and wheelchair racing, we can also help parallel disabilities in communities. A lot of our idols come from sports figures. We can really give back to our own communities and make sure people with disabilities have that chance to get an education and hold a job. A lot of athletes who compete in the Paralympics go home and try to get a job and they can't. That's not only a U.S. issue. It's a global issue. That's the important part. I feel like if we can make that change in sport, we can make that change in the community. It's an important responsibility, especially if you're a current athlete, to give back to the sport. Previous athletes, who were once my competitors but then retired, they did the same thing. They pushed the sport along the way."

    I had the opportunity to record with Tatyana McFadden the day before she won her 24th major marathon at the Chicago Marathon. She got on a plane and headed to compete at the Boston Marathon, where she made the podium with a runner-up finish. In our pre-race conversation, we talked about all things Paralympics, her role as a producer and star in the Netflix documentary "Rising Phoenix" and her advocacy work to change the way people think about disability, diversity and human potential.

    Episode 5 | Loyola Coach Amy Horst On Acknowledging Success And Pushing For Equality

    Episode 5 | Loyola Coach Amy Horst On Acknowledging Success And Pushing For Equality

    "For as much as our pandemic has been focused on inaction and staying at home, I think with the changes that we're trying to make, we're actually trying to do things about them now that we're back out in the community and going."

    This week's guest is Amy Horst. Amy is the head men’s and women’s cross country coach at Loyola and the head women’s track coach. We speak about Amy’s previous career as an engineer working on CT machines and what made her decide to switch to coaching. The real reason Amy and I connected originally was regarding her work as a member of the NCAA sport committee for track and cross country. Amy and her committee are the behind-the-scenes energy that makes NCAA championships work. 

    Amy also has been working to grow female announcing voices at the NCAA level. I loved this episode since there as great takeaways about following your passion, acknowledging your work even when it feels like nothing has been accomplished (hello pandemic!) and how to keep pushing for equality in the spaces you work in.

    Episode 4 | 800m Olympic Bronze Medalist Raevyn Rogers On Surrounding Yourself With Supporters

    "Having those people around that I can talk to in different phases of my emotions has helped balance keeping me inspired and excited about progression."

    Raevyn Rogers put together one of the best seasons, which was capped by a 1:56.81 personal best that put her at No. 4 on the U.S. all-time list and earned her a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Dana Giordano had the chance to catch up with Raevyn in Chicago on what life has been like since etching her name in the history books. Raevyn discusses what it was like making a coaching change heading into 2020, how she’s refined her speed over the years and the importance of surrounding yourself with greatness and those who want it for you.

    Episode 3 | Lennie Waite, Ph.D. on Improving Your Mental Game and Strategy

    "People who are winning medals are motivated by the people who are making the final. The people who are making the final are motivated by people who are making a threat to make the team. And if you can just continue to provide deeper resources, you're going to elevate the performance of everybody. So in my head, it makes so much sense. The wider spectrum of people that you're able to help in terms of delivering sport psychology services, You reduce stigma, you kind of help mental health. It just has this huge trickle-down effect."

    This week’s guest is Lennie Waite. After competing at Rice University, Lennie had a successful professional track career for Great Britain and competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics and 2017 world championships. Now Lennie’s second career is as a Ph.D. certified mental performance consultant working with the world’s top performers to “train your mind to get the most out of your body.” In our conversation, we discuss mental strategies for athletes who are struggling with a mental barrier, Lennie’s journey from athlete to Sports Psychologist, and her passion for the sport.
