The Calgary & Manitoba Marathons are Fast Approaching | Kirsten Fleming & Rachel Munday
Today we are pleased to welcome Kirsten Fleming and Rachel Munday to the show. Kirsten is the Executive Director of Run Calgary and Rachel is the Executive Director of the Manitoba Marathon and as you’re about to hear, they view themselves as collaborators rather than competitors in their work to put on some of Canada’s top notch race experiences. Both events are returning to their usual spring dates (Calgary May 29th; Manitoba June 19th) for the first time since 2019 and there is definite excitement in the air. Going strong since 1963, the Calgary Marathon is Canada’s oldest marathon and has been pleased to offer a 50K distance that has served as the Canadian National Championships since the event’s 50th anniversary in 2014. Founded in 1979, the Manitoba Marathon will once again host the Canadian Half Marathon Championships, and Winnipeggers are extra excited to showcase their beautiful city to some of the nation’s fastest elite athletes who may be visiting for the first time.Calgary Marathon (5K to 50K) May 29, 2022:Register: CalgaryMarathon.comCheck out Kirsten's other events at RunCalgary.comInstagram: @runcalgaryManitoba Marathon (5K to 50K) June 19, 2022:Register: ManitobaMarathon.mb.caInstagram: @manitobamarathonResources we discussed in the episode:Our interview with Jacob PuzeyConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

How Meditation Can Make You a Better Runner | Rebecca Doring
Rebecca Doring is a 33 year old married runner who lives in northwest Connecticut about a mile away from the Appalachian Trail. She started her mindfulness practice in 2012 and since then has become a Certified Yoga Instructor, a Certified Meditation Teacher and a Personal Development Coach. She is also a podcaster, producing the Deep Rooted Bliss Podcast.  Rebecca describes herself as someone who has always been drawn to running, but also as someone who felt she was terrible at it and didn’t believe she was a runner for a very long time. Rebecca rediscovered running during the pandemic and just when she finally began to identify as a runner, she got COVID. In this episode we talk about what it was that shifted her belief system and identity as a runner, how she mindfully returned to running post-COVID, and some meditation tools that she suggests all runners use to enhance their running experience.  Rebecca even gives us the special treat of a short guided meditation for runners towards the end of the show (starting at the 44:37 mark). Listeners will appreciate how clearly articulate and focused Rebecca is, as well as all the practical tips she offers runners to improve their running through meditation. We encourage you to slow down and enjoy this one!Connect with Rebecca:Instagram: @rebeccadoringmeditationPodcast: Deep Rooted Bliss Guided Meditation: www.deeprootedbliss.com/meditateConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

Trans-Canadian Speed Record Attempt Preview | Dave ProctorMarathon des Sables Finisher | Caroline WiebeFrom Boston to Western States to UTMB | Ailsa MacDonald
Ailsa MacDonald is a 41 year old ultrarunner who was born in Great Britain and raised in Nova Scotia.  She currently resides in Cochrane, AB and splits her time between Cochrane and Phoenix, AZ when she is not working two week shift rotations in northern Alberta as an Imperial Oil Plant Operator.  You first heard about Ailsa on this podcast when we interviewed her mother Morag in episode 72.  Ailsa has been an athlete all her life, competing at a high level in marathons, Ironman triathlons, and ultramarathon trail races.  As a relatively unknown ultrarunner at the time, she outright won her first 100 mile race at Sinister 7 in 2017.  Since then she placed 13th at Western States in 2018 and 6th at CCC at UTMB in 2019.  In this episode we discuss how working two week shift rotations and training in three very different geographic locations has worked to Ailsa’s advantage, the influence her mother has had on her running success, the things she learned from her challenges at UTMB last summer, as well as her goals for 2022 which include a return to Western States! Ailsa runs for Saucony and we are super happy to welcome her on the show.Connect with Ailsa :Instagram: @ailsamacdonaldrunnerFacebook Resources we discussed in the episode:Our interview with Ailsa's mother, Morag McDonah: It's Never Too Late to Begin Favourite Mantra: Never stop moving forwardFavourite Place to Run: The mountains (The Rockies) and the desert (Arizona)Bucket List Race: To finish UTMBFavourite Running Book: Endure by Alex Hutchinson Favourite Post Run Indulgence: Beer and burgersConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

After playing many sports while a teenager, Gina found herself getting more into running while in college. Despite having a young family and a busy career, Gina has continued to foster the fire that started to burn during that time and has excelled in a variety of distances and races. She has won the Manitoba Marathon twice and the half marathon once. Last year, she competed in 4 ultras in 2 months, completing the Sinister Triple “Mini” which included breaking the Canadian Near Death Race Marathon course record. In this episode, we talk about:How she fits it all inGina’s training and racing philosophyHow one trains for mountain ultras in Winnipeg during a pandemicThe importance and power of the team behind the runnerThis #motherrunner is not slowing down and seems to have energy to spare.  We hope you feel as energized as we did after listening to this conversation with Gina!Resources we discussed in the episode:Favourite Mantra: "Keep it simple stupid."

Pacer for Carolyn’s Las Vegas Rock ‘n Roll 10K Win | Kevin BeattyNew American W45-49 Track Record Holder x 4 | Pam Smith
Pam Smith is a 47 year old pathologist and mother of two teenagers who lives in Salem, OR.  She also happens to be the new W45-49 American age group track record holder in the 50 mile, 100K, 12 hour and 100 mile distances.  This amazing performance at Desert Solstice in December 2021 qualified her for the US National 100K team. She has been a steadfast presence on the running scene for two decades as she stretches the limits of her performance on the road, track, and trail in fixed distance and timed events. In fact, Pam is the perfect guest for our show because her versatility as a runner knows no bounds.In addition to her track records, some of Pam’s most notable trail accomplishments include winning the Western States 100 in 2013, and placing second in Badwater 135 in 2018 (yes that was the hot year!). Pam will be returning to Badwater in July this year in her second attempt.  Since 2020 Pam has gone through the same pandemic struggles we all did, in addition to dealing with a running injury that literally stopped the show for several months. We spent quite a bit of time talking about her return from not running a step in early 2021 to breaking 4 age group records less than a year later, something we think is an even more notable accomplishment.  Pam has gained a lot of wisdom over her years of running and ultrarunning, and we know every runner will gain something from listening to her today. If you need a flicker of hope that anything is possible, here it comes!Connect with Pam :Instagram: @rundoctor74Connect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

Running In and Out of the Pandemic | Anna Charbonneau
Anna Charbonneau is a 44 year old working mother from Alberta who rediscovered running during the pandemic. She first took up the sport back in 2007 pushing her newborn baby in the jogging stroller, but as life got busier over the next decade running slowly became more ad-hoc and reactive rather than purposeful and intentional. Pandemic closures were the catalyst for her to re-evaluate where her own health and wellness fit into the picture, and she turned to running as a familiar and safe exercise outlet. Those first steps were tough, but as you’ll hear in this interview Anna persevered. We discuss:Getting clear on her WHYAccepting where she was at with runningMustering up the courage to hire a coachTraining smarter, not harderFitting it in on her lunch hours and during her kids’ activitiesOvercoming Mom-guiltDealing with low ferritinIt’s always refreshing to hear from someone who is crystal clear about why they run and what they want to get out of it. If you’re struggling to make movement a priority as we hit the two year mark in this pandemic, be sure to listen to the very end for why Anna thinks now is the best time to (re)establish a fitness habit.

How to Engineer a Performance Breakthrough | Sara Golinvaux
This episode features one of Carolyn’s coaching clients, 35 year old Sara Golinvaux, and what led to her 14-minute PR of 3:41:30 at the Houston Marathon in January of 2022. When Sara started with Carolyn just over a year ago she had already experienced some great success but she also had a hunch that she could be even faster. She had run several marathons right around the 4 hour mark and wanted to explore what she was capable of not only at that distance, but also in the 5K, 10K and half marathon. In this conversation we take you behind-the-scenes to see what led to this stunning performance breakthrough so you can progress ever closer toward your potential too. We discuss:What made Sara decide to hire a coachThe highs and lows of her 3 distinct training cyclesWhy easy days were more challenging for her than hard daysThe difference that strength training madeWhy she almost didn’t make it to the starting line of the Houston MarathonWhat she has her sights set on next.Sara truly is a dream client. She shows up and does the work consistently, she is an excellent communicator, and she loves learning the why behind her training. If you’re looking to level up your own training and racing, you might want to take some notes from this conversation.Resources we discussed in the episode:Melanie's episode (Ep 18): The Value of Doing Hard ThingsFavourite Mantra: I am a mother-f***'n running superstarFavourite Place to Run: Early morning run before a city wakes upBucket List Race: Boston Marathon or world major (Chicago)Favourite Running Book: Let Your Mind Run by Deena KastorFavourite Post Run Indulgence: Hamburger and a glass of wineConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

It's Never Too Late to Begin | Morag McDonah
Originally from Scotland, Morag McDonah is a 66 year old Nova Scotian runner who currently holds the Canadian W65 marathon record of 3:21:38. With an impressive time like this you might assume she’s been competing since grade school, but nothing could be further from the truth. Morag was in her late 40s when she took up running and it was purely for recreation. She was never going to go further than 5K and she was definitely not going to race. But as most runners can attest, once she caught the bug one thing kept leading to another. She started off on the roads but in recent years Morag has also been lighting things up on the track and the trails and is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.In this episode, we talk about:The influence her daughter (Ailsa MacDonald) has had on her running careerWhat it was like to share the podium in Boston with Olympian Joan Benoit SamuelsonGetting hypothermia and dropping out of Boston in 2018The unconventional way she approaches marathon trainingWhy she doesn’t race with a GPS watchThe important lesson in pacing she learned the hard way in a track mileInjuries, grief, and so much more!As you’ll hear in this conversation, Morag is a breath of fresh air and we have to imagine that part of her success is due to the wonderful energy she shows up with.

Multi-Day Ultramarathoners | Kristine Self & Mike Mueller, COTQ
Are you ready for another dynamic power couple?  Both officers in the Canadian Armed Forces currently posted to Latvia, Kristine Self and Mike Mueller met in the late 1990s in Barrie ON where they instantly bonded over their shared love of running. While these two have very impressive road running resumes, we spent a good chunk of this conversation talking about their adventures in the trails, including numerous multi-day races they’ve taken part in all over the world. This chapter of their running lives began in 2016 when Mike “forced” Kristine into attending a women’s only trail running festival for HIS birthday! It was there that Kristine realized just how much she loves the trails and longer distances and has never looked back since. In this episode Mike and Kristine shared some crazy stories about their 5-6 day / 250K treks across Madagascar and Cambodia that involve snakes, crocodiles, and heat exhaustion, plus some incredible teamwork to pull each other through various low points in that race. One little side note if you’re tempted by these multi-day ultramarathons: you may want to read the fine print about landmines and corpse preparation fees! Mike and Kristine are both members of the Canadian Armed Forces’ international running team (CISM), and just in case you didn’t think their lives were busy enough, Mike manages that team and Kristine is their Peak Performance Coach.Connect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)

Manitoba Marathon Wheelchair Athlete | Shane Hartje
Shane Hartje is an entrepeneur who has run several successful for-profit organizations and is the Executive Director of the Winnipeg based non-profit organization First Steps Wellness Centre. First Steps Wellness Centre (FSWC) specializes in rehabilitation for people with neuro-muscular disorders where they help their clients regain function through the use of leading edge intensive exercise-based rehabilitation programs. They provide intensive activity-based therapy (ABT) to people with spinal cord injuries and associated disorders.Shane identified a need for a centre like First Steps after he experienced a spinal cord injury of his own in 2016, when he broke his back at the age of 41 in a motocross accident and became a paraplegic.  Shane talks to us about what it was like experiencing such a drastic shift in how he lived every aspect of his life, as well as how he decided to turn what could have seemed like failure into opportunity when he had to close his business and saw a need to serve people with neuro-muscular disorders in Winnipeg.  Since his spinal cord injury, Shane has kept moving as he continues to travel and snowmobile, and he has completed the Manitoba Wheelchair Marathon for 3 consecutive years.  He hopes to raise awareness for both the First Steps Wellness Centre as well as the possibilities in competitive sport for para-athletes in events like the marathon.  He needs more competitors!  As you will hear Kim share in this episode, her brother became a paraplegic in a dirtbike accident when he was 13.  Shane’s story resonates so deeply with her and her brother’s injury has shaped how she’s lived her life ever since his accident.If you have two good legs that work, be grateful and use them.  If you don't, there are still ways to be active. We hope that you will be inspired to keep moving in any way you can as you listen to our conversation with Shane.Connect with Shane and buy raffle tickets:EncourageRecovery.caFirst Steps Wellness CentreConnect with Carolyn & Kim:Email us with guest ideas: inspiredsolescast@gmail.comInspired Soles InstagramKim's InstagramKim's FacebookCarolyn's InstagramCarolyn's FacebookCarolyn's website (sign up for her free weekly newsletter on the homepage)
