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!
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?
