Athlete On Fire

Join us on this episode of the Weekend Warrior Show presented by Athlete On Fire.  We take a little break from the normal format and take the show to the trails.  Specifically, a 21.5 mile trek on North Fork Mountain.  Tons of ascending and descending on untrained legs leave Scott and his old college buddy Jered worn out but in high spirits.  We check in every 5 or so miles and try to bring you the experience as we saw it together.  We are both young parents and wanted to give you a reason to go try something big even if you are not trained perfectly for it.  Enjoy the show and get out there and be the athlete you all are!

What happens when you have spents days out on the desert, running, nonstop?  Well, sometimes you see things that aren't there.  Sometimes you find your passion out there as well.  Today's guest has done both. She was the youngest and the first female to complete the 4 deserts challenge.  Conquering 100's of unsupported miles in the world's most extreme deserts.  She works a full time job and shares how you can reach your athletic goals as a working athlete.  This is powerful as we are all mostly working in some way.

The CoolDown is a new show format for Athlete On Fire!  Days, weeks, and months have passed since we have talked with and learned the amazing stories of some of our athletes and we wanted to bring them back to just sit back and talk about what's going on in their lives and what's new since the last time we talked.  Not formatted at ALL, The Cool Down is supposed to be just like getting off a long trail or tough workout and talking it up with whoever you are with.  We just happen to be with an amazing athlete on fire!  Travis Brown is catching up with us again and we always love to have him on for his amazing storytelling and interesting life as a product development rep for Trek.  Today we somehow fit in amazing technological feats in bike design AND snapping turtles.  Not bad for a 20 min show!  Enjoy the candid show with the amazing Travis Brown in this newest episode of the CoolDown.

This episode is about adventure and the lessons learned along the way. Our guest shares the many lessons from his unlikely adventures and what drives him to do more.  What word did his mother ban from the house?  At the age of 15, what dream did he chase that formed the life he has today.  He shares the importance of risk verse reward and how he came up with the 777 project.  What are three mental skills YOU can use when something seems unbearable?  Learn why the journey is so important to him and his case for and against climbing Everest.  Oh, did we mention he ran the highest marathon in history.  This interview, like our guest's life is one big adventure. Enjoy another Athlete On Fire.
