She shares her thoughts on how we should relate with food,  a workout any of us can use to test and retest our fitness this offseason,  and what it means to create how you want to.  We went all over in this interesting look into a passionate and happy athlete!

Thoughts on following that gut feeling in life, as an athlete, and as an entrepreneur. A big thanks to the contributors of the AOF network and what to expect in 2017 from Athlete On Fire.  Also, the last words I said at the inspiration for Athlete On Fire's memorial service, my dad.

Often times, in life, we think we know what we're in for...only to find out we didn't really get it. Well, this is one of those times I was 100% shown that I simply did not get it ahead of time. This past weekend Megan and I ventured up to Millinocket, Maine for the Millinocket Marathon...and while I totally thought I had a handle on what was going on...I was dead wrong. 

We've got a JAM-PACKED episode for you today!

-We finally get Bryan and Peter of "How Was Your Run Today?" on the show
-We chat about Millinocket, small town charm and the lingering haunt of days gone-by

-Chat with a local business owner about the impact of the race

-Chat with the Race Director himself about his vision for the race, why he started it, and where he'd like to see it go.

We all have fears. We look at an opportunity and the little voice inside says, “I can’t do that. What if they say no? What if I fail? What if I get embarrassed? What if I get hurt?” Bring those fears to the surface and really ask yourself the “what if…” and answer it honestly. Most of the time it’s not really as big a deal as you first thought.

In this week’s interview, former UFC Champion Bas Rutten talks about how he faced his fears before stepping into the cage. Just the fact that one of the greatest fighters ever had these fears should tell you that it’s ok to have fear. It’s not ok, however, to let that fear hold you back. God has planted potential into you. A special ability. You are meant to use your special gift to make the world– your world– a better place. Learn how…
Listen to this week’s episode of Success Through Failure.

Today I bring you Bas Rutten. Bas is a former UFC Champion and 3x King of Pancrase- which was a fighting promotion out of Japan. He’s now in the UFC Hall of Fame. He finished his career on a 22 fight unbeaten streak before retiring due to multiple injuries. He later came back, in 2006, to fight again, winning by TKO. He has appeared in numerous television shows including Martial Law and King of Queens. He’s appeared in movies and even has a cameo in the video game Grand Theft Auto. He has also developed his own unique version of a training mask called the O2 Trainer.

Our guest is a world renowned author and alpinist with a different take on a similar story of adventure on the tops of the biggest mountains in the world.  We talk about what it takes to up and leave and live in a foreign country.  Why training plans don't always work and what is next for her and her adventure.  She gives a great physical challenge and is a thoughtful and passionate athlete.  We think she bridged the gap pretty well.

Enjoy this and all the shows of the Athlete On Fire Network!
