Most people never cross the finish line. It's not because they are not good, or fast or determined. It's simply because they don't even start. 

I've heard it over & over again, I walked by the gym for months, or even years, and was too scared to come in. I often hear this from people who NOW attend classes 5 or more classes a week now. It's now become a major part of their lives and the only thing they regret is not starting sooner. 

I sit down with Natalie Lodge & Jenny McConnell, who both have their stories of starting with a single step. These ladies have accomplished a lot in the past couple of years from Running Marathons to Coaching to competing in the CrossFit Open. But none of it would have been possible without a single decision that changed the course of their lives and the lives of everyone they have helped & inspired in the process.

We tawwwlk about...

  • the difficulty of moving past bad habits and unsupportive friends
  • how finding your "sport" or "thing" is the key to living an optimal life
  • the challenges females may face in pursuit of their vision
  • what JUST starting is more important than anything
  • plus, I make Jenny cry
