Athlete On Fire

Jesse Itzler is a serial entrepreneur, ultra runner, and general seeker of adventure.  On the show we talk about adventurous parenting, addiction to newness, and mental toughness.  His background is amazing and diverse and to spare the clickbait(y) descriptions about what this guy has accomplished, I'd recommend you just listen to the show to find out who he really is first, then go google the crap out of him!  Thanks for listening.

Of his personal achievements, he completed an 1800 mile bikepack from Banff, Canada to his home in Colorado. From day to day, you can find Jalen on his bike exploring obscure regions of wilderness and sharing his travel stories to Colorado's Afro communities.

Max Conserva is back on the show to share a new training protocol he helped develop for coaches and trainers to work better with adaptive athletes. So many trainers simply pass off the opportunity to work with athletes with prosthetics or other obstacles when it could be a rewarding and inspiring experience for both.  Today, we talk about the road Max went down to make sure he could reach more athletes like himself.  He lost most of a leg to an accident when he was a youngster.  We hope you will love the show and share with a trainer or coach you know!

Coach Gruse shares how crazy and inconsistent the season has been both on and off the court.  Crazy weather keeping the team from practice and a couple let downs after big wins.  All in all it's a typical season but let's hope they finish the last third of the season strong!

Man, what a gift. To meet someone multiple times, our guest is a good friend of my wife, but not get to know her much better until recording the show! She has much more to say but if you think it is important to get people from every corner of society into the outdoors, you'll love this chat.

Kriste Peoples is an outdoor enthusiast who loves to share her love of trails, whether she’s running, hiking, snowshoeing, or thinking about it. She’s a Ragnar ambassador, a couch-to-5k coach, an Outdoor Afro leader, and a proud coach for L2S Fitness–all of which means she can often be found pointing excitedly at park maps and cheering adventurous souls around the next bend. By day, she's a producer at a New Age media company that shares in another of her passions: honoring the best that's in us.
