My Conversation with Travis Macy Author of The Ultra Mindset - Episode 106

My Conversation with Travis Macy Author of The Ultra Mindset - Episode 106

February 24, 2022

Sure Travis Macy wrote the book "The Ultra Mindset", but he is so much more! I loved the energy Travis brought to the conversation. His exuberance can be found in whatever he does. His list of athletic accomplishments range across a variety of sports and I could not begin to do him justice in listing those here. His love for his family and care for his father really struck a chord with me. I strive to be what Travis embodies, and that is a loving father, son, athlete, and everything else he does with the conviction and passion that is driven by his love for life and others! Thank you for this conversation Travis! It meant more to me than I can express!

Talking Inclusivity & Diversity in Our Sport with John Lacroix - Episode 104

Talking Inclusivity & Diversity in Our Sport with John Lacroix - Episode 104

February 10, 2022

We all know we need more diversity and inclusion in our sport, but with conversation & action we'll not gain much ground. John Lacroix is trying to implore us to action. John is a race director for the Human Potential Race Series in Colorado, Arkansas, & Texas. We go in depth as to why races MUST be inclusive to ALL genders and races. I hope this sparks others to start conversations with other race directors!
