    "It's time. I've made teams – a lot of teams. I've been making teams since my sophomore year of college...Now, it's time to get medals. Now, it's time to go into competitions and leave with hardware. That's where my mindset is now. I know I'm capable of doing it." Quanesha Burks is the 2022 indoor and outdoor U.S. women's long jump champion and a 2021 Olympian. At the U.S. Championships, she jumped a personal best of 7.06 meters (That's 23 feet, 2 inches). Heading into the World Championships in a week, she is ranked No. 7 in the world and the top American in the event. She is one of the most positive people I've had the chance to meet within the past year. As you'll hear in this episode, she's always had to work hard to make a name for herself and care for those she loved. Last summer, I wrote a story for Sports Illustrated on her since she put out a tweet about how she started at Mcdonald's and now made it to The Olympics. Through it all, she's continued to showcase her personality and humor with now more than 65,000 followers on Instagram and 46,000 followers on TikTok.

    Today's guest, Gail Devers, was a rising star in the world of running, winning title after title. Until her body began to betray her, literally consuming itself and threatening to end her career just as it was just getting going, let alone her life. Maybe even more distressing, though, was a level of systematic gaslighting for years, doctors kept saying nothing was wrong, but she knew. And she kept pushing for answers until she found one, then painstakingly rebuilt her health, her life, and stepped back onto the track to do what no one else thought possible. Gail became a nine-time World Champion, three-time Olympic gold track and field medalist, and a five-time Olympian. Now a fierce advocate for raising awareness for Grave's Disease, which she was finally diagnosed with, she's made a name for herself as one of the fastest women alive for almost two decades. Although the odds were seemingly against Gail when she discovered her diagnosis, from her health suffering to her self-confidence taking a major hit as a result. It made Gail's recovery and comeback moment years later in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona even more special. But her story is also so much bigger than running. She's become a fierce advocate to raise awareness for Grave's disease and its accompanying TED symptoms. In my chat with her today, we take it back to where it all first started, remembering what motivated her to step onto the track in the first place, and we make our way up to the moment that finally changed everything for Gail: receiving her first diagnosis. We talk about how overwhelming yet crucial it was for Gail to serve as her own health advocate during her search for answers, how goal-setting played its role in her recovery and healing journey, and why it's so important for us all to take back control of our lives against anything that tries to take it away from us. This talk with Gail comes at a special time since July is Grave's Disease Awareness Month. So buckle in, and come along this ride with us today and learn how one woman was determined to finish the race that she started, even if her life depended on it. So excited to share this conversation with you.You can find Gail at: More About Thyroid Eye Disease | InstagramIf you LOVED this episode you'll also love the conversations we had with Rich Roll about navigating his journey through addiction, recommitting himself to health and wellness, and eventually becoming an ultra-endurance athlete.Check out our offerings & partners: My New Book Sparked | My New Podcast SPARKEDVisit Our Sponsor Page For a Complete List of Vanity URLs & Discount Codes.Cymbiotika: Cymbiotika provides cutting-edge, pure products that improve energy levels, focus, physical stamina & overall health.

I define leading as being looked to in a particular moment to make a decision or perform an action based on your unique gifts and abilities. So by that definition, everybody is a leader.

    She calls herself an ‘Unlikely Olympian', but to us, there's nothing improbable about the success of this week's podcast guest, @DanielleKettlewell_. In fact, she's the kind of woman who exudes nothing but hard work, determination, and grit. Buckle in for this story people, because it's one heck of a ride!  If you haven't heard of Danielle before, she's an inspiring young speaker and coach, who teaches others about the power of mindset and manifestation, and who's written her own book. Oh… and she's an Olympian, having competed at the freaking 2016 Rio Olympics!!! Danielle was one of just nine people in the Australian female Synchronised Swimming squad, but it was her journey to even get there that proves just how special she is. From suffering a concussion, to packing up her life and moving across the world by herself,  and spending eight hours training everyday, Danielle says it was never about winning - it was always about realising how good she could be.  “It was about proving to myself that I was good enough. Letting go of the outcome and being proud of who I became. The outcome doesn't prove your worth.” And how did she do it? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out. But it has a lot to do with transforming her mindset and self-worth. Because, as Danielle says: “There's an Unlikely Olympian in all of us.”

    In the small Welsh village of Resolven where Dan Jervis grew up, it was rugby that ruled the roost. But from the moment that Dan's grandparents took him to the local pool, it was clear that swimming was the sport for him. Dan dreamed of being an Olympian – and last year, he made that happen at the Games in Tokyo, when he finished 5th in the 1500 metres freestyle final in his debut Olympics. Throw in a pair of Commonwealth medals in Glasgow and the Gold Coast respectively, and you can see why Dan is feeling so upbeat heading into next month's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. But before then, Dan wanted to open up publicly for the first time about the fact he's gay – so when he dropped us a message, asking to come on the pod for a chat, we were delighted to have him on. As always, this isn't Dan's ‘coming out' story – as his friends and his family have known for a little while now. But it is the first time Dan has shared his story with the wider world – and in doing so, he hopes to be the role-model that he perhaps didn't see growing up. And so, that's what this conversation is all about – Dan's journey in the pool, training in a pandemic, that first Olympics experience, understanding his own sexuality, his faith, and why now is the right time to share his story.

    British runner Aly Dixon first joined her local running club when she was 11 years old. It took time and patience for the proud Mackem (Sunderland) to get her first England vest at 29 and it was another two years before her first GB vest at 31. Her confidence hit rock bottom and she threw her trainers in the bin after the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. And it was her friend Paula Radcliffe who helped her to rekindle her love for running. Aly went on to fulfil a childhood dream of competing at the Rio Olympics, she finished 6th at the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and became World Champion over 50km in 2019. Aly retired from international competition in 2021 but is just as passionate about running. You'll hear: 09:10 Tan lines of runners v triathletes 10:00 "I do plan on doing a triathlon at some point. The next challenge is now a triathlon and I do have a crazy ideas that I want to do an Ironman but I think about it for 20 seconds. I am just waiting for someone to get me drunk and hit that enter button. I've joined a triathlon club, so its the start of a slippery slope. 11:25 Aly talks about descending on a bike and how she has been overcoming her fear of going downhill. 'I think I was the only cyclist going down Sa Calobra to be glad to be stuck behind a tourist bus" 14:40 Aly's running career and how she needed a lot pf patience. "I didn't get my first England vest until I was 29 and my first GB vest until I was 31. From joining the club at 11 or 12 to retiring from international retirement at 43, it's been a long journey. 21:40 Completing Vs competing. One day there will be a time that I can truly go in and not worry about a time. I have to remember that I am 43, I shouldn't be and can't be competing against people in their mid-30s. It's about being realistic and setting myself targets. I have to remind myself I'm still doing well as a 43 year old even though identify as a 27 year old. But I know I can't expect too much of myself. I keep on telling myself not to put any pressure on myself, as I'm only training 1/3 of what I used to. I can't compare 2022 Aly to 2017 Aly but you're always going to look back to what you have achieved and if I keep doing that, it will take away the love of it. 27:25 Loving running. 'I just love the feeling of running, so as long as I can do it, I'll do it. 29:10 My work colleagues think I'm mad for doing things at lunch time. But it's an addiction. But what are you going to replace it with? Beer and become obese? 30:10 Aly on Rio 2016 'It still doesn't feel real. I think I was 37 at the Olympics and I knew it was unusual, but I never felt like I was doing it for anyone else. Growing up, I put Olympians as demi-Gods who were not ordinary people. It's something I will be forever proud of, but it doesn't feel like it did when I was growing up. 33:40 Aly talks about how Paula Radcliffe went from being her teenage hero to a good friend. She was one of the most instrumental people to get to the Olympics. After (Glasgow) 2014, I decided I was never going to run again. I had lost all confidence and she took me under her wings and build up my confidence, confirming 'you are in great shape, you can do this.' Without her and the belief she had, I would have walked away. I do owe her a lot. 37:40 When confidence was rock bottom, how did she turn it around? I don't love it for the medals, i love it for everything else. "One bad run doesn't make you a bad runner." 45:40 Talent Vs hard work. 'My talent is that I can work hard. Running 120, 130 miles at times. It's ingrained from my dad, I watched him and he was a workhorse. I have phsyios who look at me who say 'how do you do it?' But I look back now and I know I did too much mileage. I could have been smarter with my training and I could have jumped on a turbo rather than going out on a 6 mile recovery run. 51:40 Aly talks about how important nutrition is and it's so important not to take shortcuts. 54:30

    High-achievers have a mindset that redefines how they approach their passions. The root of the word “passion” is being willing to endure or to suffer for something.If we define “passion” around being happy, we'll trade long-term satisfaction for short-term gratification.In this podcast episode, Peter Lynch, The Unshakable Coach, helps us redefine how we approach our passion.The origin of the word “passion” is not about happiness, he says, but suffering. Our passion is what we are willing to suffer for.Suffering is something every entrepreneur understands. We've all suffered for our dream. And that is passion.He encourages entrepreneurs to ask: “What are you suffering for? What are you suffering to bring into existence?”If we instead approach our passion as that which we are willing to suffer for, we are much more likely to achieve our goals. And reach true satisfaction while we're at it.This is the mindset that sets high-achievers apart. Listen to the full conversation to hear what Olympians and entrepreneurs know that helps them reach their goals.

To me, leading is a verb. If you're leading, you're a leader. If you're swimming you're a swimmer, if you're driving you're a driver. If you're leading you're by definition a leader. I define leading as being looked to in a particular moment to make a decision or perform an action based on your unique gifts and abilities. So by that definition, everybody is a leader. All rank and role really describe is how many people are hoping you get it right when it's your turn to wear the weight.” - Clint Bruce "Attention is the currency of performance." - Dr. Peter Haberl “That's what I've discovered in the lives of brilliant, prolific, healthy creatives, is that they have networks of people they leverage in the course of their work. That they learn from, that they were challenged by, that they gave great insight and purview into their own life and work, in such a way that they were able to receive feedback that helped them get better at what they do.” - Todd Henry "Restful and fulfilling sleep enables you to grow, adapt, and thrive. It creates the conditions for adaptation, so you can pursue audacious goals and thrive in uncertainty." - Dr. Erik Korem "Most exercise programs fail, not because the reps and sets are poorly designed, but because the program doesn't adjust for how much stress your body can adapt to that day!.

    83: Never Making NCAA's To Becoming World Class

    Female Athlete Nutrition

    In this episode of the Female Athlete Nutrition podcast I talk with professional runner for Adidas Emily Durgin. We jump right in to discussing her incredible run at the Houston Half Marathon, a performance that places her as the sixth fastest American female of all-time! Emily announces her plans to run her first marathon in the fall of 2022, and talks about how she'll need to approach fueling differently to maximize her performance over 26.2 miles. Emily shares her current pre-race nutrition strategy racing distances from the 5km to half marathon: fueling well the days before and a good race day breakfast, topped off with an energy gel before the start. We highlight how fuelling looks different for elite and amateur runners depending on race duration and intensity. Emily and I bond over the difficulties of college chemistry classes required to become a dietitian as we talk about choosing a major in college. As a top high school athlete, Emily shares her recruiting journey and how she ultimately ended up at UCONN, running for 5 years on an NCAA Division 1 team. We discuss the challenges of transitioning to college combined with navigating puberty and body changes. Emily opens up about her struggles and setbacks towards the end of high school and beginning of college, gaining necessary weight as she developed into a woman. Despite early successes in high school, Emily talks about the plateau she hit and how, with the support of coaches, she stayed patient and committed as her body changed, riding the wave that ultimately led her to find lots of success at the conference level. We discuss the culture of eating patterns and mindset on running teams at the high school, college, and professional level. We talk strategies for navigating toxic team cultures, including being around athletes struggling with disordered eating. Emily shares how her relationship with food has changed for the better, noting the positive influence of Olympians like Cory McGee, Ellie Purrier St Pierre and Abbey D'Agastino role modeling an “all foods fit” mindset, like we advocate for at Rise Up Nutrition. Emily explains how she's noticed that the higher the standard of performance the healthier the culture and the less restrictive and obsessive the eating habits: no coincidence, because in order to be the best you have to be well fuelled and happy!  Now one of America's best athletes, it's easy to assume that Emily dominated the NCAA and graduated with many sponsorship offers to choose between; however, this could not be further from the truth. Never finishing as an All-American or even making NCAA's on the track, Emily shares how she bet on herself and balanced working as a nanny while running post-collegiately. Results did not come overnight, but her patience and trust in the process saw her steady progress to becoming one of the World's best, earning a professional contract along the way. We hear about the experiences Emily had training with Olympians on some of the best pro teams, and discuss the importance of role models and support systems, alongside self-belief and perseverance. These same approaches Emily took to her running we can all apply to our training and nutrition; whether it's getting your period, recovering from injury, or setting a PR, no matter where you are right now, by focusing on the process and the small steps you can take today, you can achieve your goals and we can all be fit, fierce and fuelled female athletes! Follow Emily on Instagram  @em_durgin  Emily's Official Bio: Emily Durgin is an American long-distance runner from Standish, Maine.  She attended the University of Connecticut and was a 9-time American Athletic Conference Champion.   After graduating from UConn in May 2017, Emily continued running professionally and became one of the top American road racers. She moved to Flagstaff, Arizona in 2019 and is sponsored by Adidas. This January she ran 67:54 in the Houston Half Marathon becoming the 6th fastest American ever.

It's not over. I don't think this is the highest point." Erriyon Knighton is just 18 years old but has already shattered some of Usain Bolt's junior sprint records. He also turned pro as a high schooler and signed with Adidas. Back in April, he ran a wind-legal 19.49 at a meet in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to become the fourth-fastest man in history. Only Bolt, Yohan Blake and Michael Johnson are ahead of him on the all-time list. Knighton ran 19.84 for the previous U20 record in the semifinal of the Olympic Trials. He made the team and was the youngest U.S. male track Olympian since Jim Ryun in the 60s. He finished fourth at last year's Olympics and you'll hear just how much he wants a piece of hardware.
