Episode #10- Janelle Morrison- The Hero's Journey and The Search For True Fulfillment.
In 2010 Janelle Morrison's life changed forever. Janelle was in a car accident that quite literally crushed her body. It took paramedics over three hours to get her out of the car using the jaws of life. She was placed in a medically induced coma for a week in order for doctors to repair her body. Two years later she was on the podium at Ironman Canada. Despite all odds Janelle managed to claw her way back to the highest level in her sport. She really did live the hero's journey. But despite her remarkable comeback she was left feeling unfulfilled and empty. It took incredible courage and resilience to claw her way back physically but arguably as much, if not more courage, to leave the sport when she realized it was not the end game she hoped for. This realization set her on a new path of mental and spiritual renewal. Janelle now shares her wisdom through speaking, coaching and yoga. To learn more about Janelle you can visit her website: http://www.janellemorrison.com/ and we strongly recommend checking the documentary "Second Chance"- you can view the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC3t3OwrcvM

Episode #7- Jeff Symonds on Getting Ugly, Success, Pressure and How The Desire For Perfection Can Be Paralyzing
Jeff Symonds has earned a reputation for getting ugly. From his epic win at Challenge Penticton following a bike crash at 60kph to the infamous Ironman World Championships in 2016 when he rode with one leg for the last 10km of the bike, Jeff is not shy about digging deep when it matters. Over the years he has racked up an impressive resume on the pro triathlon circuit including a podium finish at the World 70.3 Championships in 2011 and winning the Ironman Asia Pacific Championships in 2014. But it has not always been easy. Over the years Jeff has struggled with his own demons. His desire for perfection, at times, has left him paralyzed, frustrated and void of any joy for the process. The lows after bigger successes were often self-destructive and left him contemplating retirement. Thankfully Jeff has reconnected with his roots and found new energy in the process.
