    05: Cancer Couldn’t Keep This Gold Medalist Indoors (Kikkan Randall)

    One moment she was riding high off taking gold in nordic skiing at the olympics, a first for the U.S., and the next she was receiving a breast cancer diagnosis. 

    But Kikkan Randall doesn’t take life’s challenges lying down. Not only did she fight cancer, she did so while staying active, proving that spending time outside and moving your body isn’t just possible no matter what, it’s necessary.

Be inspired!

Great listen. So many great gems about how to reframe outdoor activity. ‘Aim for the grand adventure knowing it may take on many forms’ Being active will look different to everyone but being outside doesn’t have to mean running a marathon or skiing. Loved being inspired to step outside, myself. Loved the lightning and leftovers round. Way to go Amy! This Podcast is a great voice and perspective. ❤️

This Podcast is just what you need in your life!!!

This podcast is just what you need in your life. Amy gives us little updates about her outside life, about living in Alaska, and interviews different people who are rocking the outdoor life. Pretty inspiring!!!

Super inspiring and interesting!

As someone who listened to the first episode watching pouring rain wondering “What would Amy do?”, it struck me that 20 mins outside on a day like today would take a level of motivation I do not yet possess. I love hearing the stories of how others accomplish this, stay motivated, and the benefits they reap! 🙌
