Athlete On Fire

It’s raining men (and women… mostly women, actually) on this sky high episode of Dispatch Radio. Join hosts Kelly Cornish-McConnell, Laurie Nakauchi and Cory Feign as they go well above and beyond our usual 5,280’ and meet some people experienced in the art of jumping out of or off things and safely returning to earth to discuss what they just did on a podcast. Adventure journalist Jayme Moye gets inspired covering a paragliding recon mission to jump off Kilimanjaroand ends up taking the plunge herself with Vail Valley Paragliding in our own backyard. Yogi Steph Schwartz talks about her transition from ultra-runner to yogi to badass skydiver and skydiving instructor and how mindfulness factors into both disciplines. World hang glider speed record holder Ben Herring introduces us all to hang gliding and discusses how he balances his decades-long obsession with being a dad and working full time (Hint: it involves sharing his passion with others).

Jon is a New Zealand, Londoner. He grew up in NZ and moved to London where he’s worked and lived for many years whilst travelling the globe on some awesome adventures. Today’s podcast see’s Jon and I discuss his latest and greatest adventure “The Great Game”, where he brought a land cruiser named Boris and drove from London, through Europe and across Asia, culminating in returning to Kabul, Afghanistan for cricket match.

Our guest is also a podcast host so we have no problem getting the conversation going.  We talk about how to get people who way they hate running to give it another try.  Training schedules.  How she feels during high training times and more.  Athlete On Fire is here to bridge the gap between amazing athletes and the rest of the world.

All too often people find themselves in an unfulfilling cycle. Get up, go to work, stare at the clock, go home...with no sense of purpose, no sense of pride, and maybe no sense of your impact on the world at large.

I, and many like me, spend our days differently. We wake up high on life, swipe a keyfob at the door, and walk into a world where we can help people make lasting, positive change in their lives.

Today I want to talk about where I work, what I do, and why, no matter how hard some days might be... I love it every damn day. Today you find out what it means to #BleedPurple.

Colorado is always a vibrant and exciting place but maybe never as much at it is in the fall.  The promise of skiing. Fall colors and the adventures that come with them. Youth leagues in sports you never would think to be this big. Tons of events and of course, the Broncos.
