The Enormocast

Life, climbing goals, and responsibility

Chris and I sit down in my little RV in a dark Indian Creek UT parking lot and talk about real life ups and down, goal setting, failure, and inspiration. It was more than a blast to learn from this man who, “First visited Indian Creek when (I was) 4…” I like to think I had a little to share, but like always, I walked away with more to consider, learn from, and let go of.



Hear Her Sports:

Mountains, failure, and coaching

Elizabeth and I talk about my strange and nonlinear journey in climbing, success and failure, integrative wellness coaching, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  It was wonderful!

But then…

After our conversation, I felt pretty nervous of the outcome.  How did I come across?  Was I too excited (…standard)?  Did I overexplain, underexplain? 

Was. It. Perfect??!!

Even the idea of sharing the podcast was not everything my inner critic wanted me to do. 
“Maybe share it if you do another and are less gabber-y?” 

Well, spoiler alert:  No, it is not perfect.

It was imperfect. I was my standard excited-self, could have edited out a few ramblings, realize I say “like” more than I would, like, like to…

AND it was so incredible to hear my story through Elizabeth’s vision of feminist sports coverage.  My story is something I am proud of; the roughness and smooth-sailing, the shadow and the sparkly bits.

My inner critic jumped up for a moment, it’s true.  And I politely asked her to get in the backseat and not touch anything- I have places to go and will not be handing out the wheel, thank you.

Give it a listen, send me your thoughts.

What was something that pushed you out of your comfort zone?  How do you respond or react to failure?
