Like a Bigfoot Podcast #210: Matt ‘Shep’ Shepard 2 — “6 Days in the North”, Going After a Canadian Record

This week we are catching back up with Shep to hear all about his experience going after the Canadian six day ultra running record!

In a continuation of Episode 205, we dig into the lessons learned and growth experienced during Shep’s “6 Days in the North”.  A major theme is “expect the unexpected” as the project started with a massive torrential rainstorm.  Enduring unknown challenges with adaptability and confidence is HUGE in life and Shep was a steward of this through this event.

We also dive into the concept of learning from failures and the cycle of  “attempt, learn, adjust, attempt” which is a powerful driving factor to anyone’s success!

Hope you guys enjoy the episode! I could seriously chat with him for days as he is incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, driven and shares a wonderful growth mindset!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #211: Angus Peacock 2 — The One Million Step Challenge

A few months ago we chatted all about rugby with Angus Peacock, the Executive Director of Rugby Colorado.  This week we are focusing on his emphasis on health and happiness as he approaches the big 5-0 in our strange times.

Angus has taken on a One Million Step Challenge with his sister to support diabetes research.  This is quite the challenge as it requires pretty much a half marathon every single day for weeks for 900 miles….also it’s really 1.7 steps.

In this episode we dive into his challenge along with many other topics.  We chat about his approach to diet, which is based on his study of what British soldiers ate through desert missions in World War 2.  We talk leadership principles and how we can apply them to our own lives, reframing “angst”, the Siberian Dilemma, Comparing yourself with yourself in the moment versus yourself in the past, and how to reverse the erosion of our four pillars.

This one is a good one full of plenty of knowledge and ideas we can apply to our own lives!

Chatting with Angus brought me out of a funk as he explained the significance of the important aspects of our lives, the four pillars of health — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Hope you guys enjoy!

If possible, please support Angus’s challenge by checking out the links below.
