Hi, Dawn here,
I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Before I get into this episode, we want to remind you that we now have a YouTube channel. Expect video episodes - live right now- and new and fun types of content. Please subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/@themettleset
So back to this episode. This is the start of a new series which is dedicated to the Beginner Mindset. If you’ve been following along you’ll know that throughout the podcast, we’ve had the opportunity to talk with so many amazing women - and men - about achieving some VERY big goals.
We hope that you find our guests as relatable as we do, and keeping in this spirit, we wanted to share athletes speaking about their very first race or major sports challenge… be it in ultra-cycling, ultra-running, triathlon or even mountaineering. We wanted to do this to highlight that we all start somewhere and reinforce that there is beauty in the Beginner’s Mindset.
Today, we focus on self-supported ultra-cycling and you’ll hear from Evelyn Weiss, Ella Barlow and Chris Thomas, as each shares their experience in their very first race.
Find the athletes and the races they talk about below:
In this episode you’ll hear about:
Our wider support team for this episode includes Editor JJ Thompson and our Artwork is by the talented Alexandra Hickey of Studio Theodore.
We hope you enjoy!
