Gina Lucrezi’s roots stem from short distances on the track, but after a few wild jaunts on the trails, she was convinced to trade in her beloved speedy flat asphalt for rugged desolate mountain terrain. Her proudest achievements include a 5th place finish at the highly competitive CCC 100k (her first 100k), completing the Western States Endurance Run (100 miles), winning a USATF 10k Trail Champion title, and being awarded a 10 time NCAA All-American while in college (including one NCAA National Title).

Off the trail, Gina has spent 10 years working in the outdoor industry with a focus in the marketing arena.

Rose Wetzel is back on the podcast! This time around we are talking about balancing motherhood and her career as a professional obstacle course racer. Rose has been a professional obstacle racer for years on the Spartan Pro Team, competed on American Ninja Warrior more than once, and is sponsored by some incredible companies.

Getting to chat with Rose is always a pleasure as she is honest, raw, and shares how she feels. We talked about why she choose to let the Spartan Up Podcast into her delivery room, changing poopy diapers, and how some setbacks during childbirth made her change some of her athletic goals and timelines. Finally, we touched on travel, racing, and parenthood. All that and more this episode.

If you missed Rose the first time on the podcast you can find her on Episode 25.

Bea Johnson and her family produce one jar of waste per year since 2008. Bea founded ZeroWasteHome.com, a blog and Zero Waste Home book about waste-free living and the global rise of the zero waste lifestyle movement. With her positive outlook and simple 5R methodology, Bea initiated a global movement, inspiring hundreds of thousands of people to adopt waste-free living, open unpackaged shops, conceive reusable products, and launch organizations.

She shatters misconceptions, proving that waste-free living can not only be "stylish", but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings. She is the leading spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle and a French native who currently lives in Mill Valley, California.

Tyler Tomasello has lived a couple lives in his time on this planet. At a young age, he was a professional snowboard competitor. After his competitive days were done he turned to Ultra Running and has competed in races around the world. A few years ago he picked up his camera and has been exploring the world of photojournalism ever since.

He has combined his love of nature, people, and the outdoors into his work. He often tells the stories of the people who are normally missed by mainstream media. Whether he is traveling to Miami to document a hurricane first hand or to Afghanistan to showcase female ultra runners. Tyler is constantly looking for the stories that not many are willing to tell.

He joins the podcast to talk about his experience in Afghanistan and how he went to tell the story of a group of local female ultra runners and ended up coaching the women. Tyler tells of a different Afghanistan, one which is normally missed in mainstream media.

Tyler's work recently took him to Sittwe, Rakhine, and Myanmar on another project then directly after that he headed to Bangladesh. In his words "heading to Cox's Bazar to document and tell the other side of the story." Tyler is constantly on the move and it was an honor and privilege to get to sit down with him and let him tell some of his story and the story of the women he worked with in Afghanistan.

Donna Cameron has spent her career working with nonprofit organizations and causes—as an executive, consultant, trainer, and volunteer. She has seen kindness in action and been awed by its power to transform.

When she committed to a year of living kindly she considered herself a reasonably nice person (with occasional lapses into bitchiness), but she knew that true kindness was a step above—and over the course of that year, she learned that it takes practice, patience, and understanding . . . not to mention a sense of humor. Out of her experience was born the book A Year of Living Kindly. We chat about the book, kindness and why it's needed more than ever these days.

The recipient of multiple writing awards, Cameron has published numerous articles and, in 2011, coauthored (with Kristen Leathers) One Hill, Many Voices: Stories of Hope and Healing. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Donna now lives in a suburb of Seattle with her husband.

Episode Extra:

For Patreon supporters, Donna has offered a free one-page “manifesto” describing 10 key elements of kindness just for supporters of the podcast. You can get access to this bonus and others by becoming a Patron today for as little as $1.00 a month. Get access to episodes early, giveaways, and bonuses like this one.

When Anne Champagne crossed the finish line at the Spartan Stoneham Ultra Beast she made history. Not only did Champagne win the race for women she beat all the men by over 45 minutes. I checked with Spartan HQ to confirm my suspicion that Anne was the first woman in the race company history to outright win an Ultra Beast. Spartan confirmed that she was the first women to ever accomplish this feat and that only one other time in the companies history had a woman outright won a Spartan of any distance but that race was not an Ultra Beast according to Spartan HQ. 

Champagne joins the podcast to talk about the race, how she feels making Spartan history, and a little bit about her life, training and more. Champagne joined me via a Skype call from her home in Quebec, Canada to talk about it all just days after she won the race. Champagne has been an obstacle course racer for years and frequently finds herself on podiums in both Canada and the United States.

It all began in a small kitchen fueled by a mother’s love where the founder, Sue Kerber searched for something natural to relieve her son’s eczema. In early 2009, she turned her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for blending natural ingredients into what is today known as the Rad Soap Co.
 
From that point forward Sue and her family developed a unique and top secret proprietary process for creating their handcrafted batches of soap. The process includes suspending the soap in a glycerin state with botanicals and essential oils never being exposed to caustic sodas/lye therefore never altering the delicate state of those natural ingredients. To this day RAD's unique process of production has never been duplicated to their knowledge. RAD's products are crafted and ready for delivery within 24 hours thus delivering the freshest all-natural body care to our beloved consumers and wholesale partners.

A group of unexpected loyal customers got behind the family and their award-winning products from day one with the power of a grassroots movement which took on a life of its own. Rad was also accepted/requested into the world of the highly prestigious, trending and selective Korean Beauty/Skin Care market when they became one of the first and only American family-owned companies to sell their products in South Korea. 

Today, The Rad Soap Co. is committed to being the consumers the most trusted source for natural body care products. RAD Soap adheres to strict quality standards due to the founder’s belief “If my family won’t use it, then we won’t sell it”. We believe in products with a purpose.

Back in May, I caught up with our very first guest on the podcast Andi Hardy! She stayed over at my house and we decided to sit down and catch up on life with the audio recorder on talking all about life, balance, and more. 

Until now it's been for Patreon Patrons only but now it's available to everyone and the first update show. No idea how many we will do but it's a stripped down chat. I hope you enjoy!

Erin Broadfoot the co-founder and co-owner of Little Beasts Brewing in Whitby, Ontario. A 10hL brewery that produces craft beer. They brew a variety of hoppy ales and saisons and pride themselves on consistency and quality. A strong understanding of microbiology and chemistry has really helped me in my brewing career.

This is a second career for Broadfoot, she was an ND that focused on gynecology and obstetrics previously. She began brewing professionally in 2014 and subsequently won a scholarship to Siebel Technical Institute for brewing which essentially sealed her future.

After working in the industry for a few years she decided to work for herself and opened up Little Beasts in October 2017 after two years of planning with her friend and business partner John Henley.

In her spare time, she spends as much time as possible with my husband and 3 children and is pretty involved in obstacle course racing. She trains at her local OCR gym and through Yancy Camp. She has become pretty obsessed with endurance OCR and runs a number of races yearly including a recent Toughest Mudder, an 8-hour overnight obstacle course race. In the podcast, we talk all about beer, the process, and opening a business.
