In this episode of the Sweatpants Chronicles we’re doing a little check-in! We’ve covered a lot of big topics in the first 10 episodes of the show so we thought it would be a great time to follow up on a few of the things we’ve shared. We cover positive affirmations, mediation, crowns, women supporting women, and peaks and valleys. So a little bit of everything! We’ll link below to the episodes where we originally talked about each of those topics so that you can go back and listen if you haven’t had a chance yet.
Positive Affirmations – Episode 4: I Am Enough
Meditation – Episode 7: All About Mindfulness
Wear Your Crown – Episode 6: Keeping Up with the Jones’
Women Supporting Women – Episode 9: Grown-Up Mean Girls
We mention in this episode that we have an interview coming up in December with Mirna Valerio otherwise known as The Mirnavator! Tristi mentioned Mirna as her obsession in Episode 8. Mirna is an ultra-runner that doesn’t have the body type of your typical long distance runner. She’s been called some really terrible things by people that don’t think she belongs in her sport. But she continues to do what she loves and call herself a runner – because that’s what she is! She recently did an ad with REI and shared her story. You can view the video by clicking here. Mirna is an incredible inspiration to both of us and we could not be more excited to have her on the show! Be sure to check out her story and let us know if you have any questions you’d like us to ask her during our interview.
One last thing we wanted to be sure to link to is a Facebook post we talk quite a bit about during this episode! You can read the whole post by clicking here. Tristi competed in a Crossfit competition called the Festivus Games a couple of weeks ago. She and her partner, McCall, took second place! Tristi shared that she was actually pretty bummed about not getting first place, but that her daughter, Afton, helped to bring the whole thing into perspective for her. Aren’t kids amazing? Sometimes they really do teach us a lot more than we teach them!
Cassidy & Tristi: We actually have the same obsession this week! It’s one of our very favorite TV shows – This Is Us! We both love it because it depicts real life! Just all the shitty things that happen in normal life. It deals with grief, addiction, fat, shame, adoption, divorce and more. You can see how the traumas in the characters lives affect their belief systems and how they interact with the world. It might break our hearts from time to time but we just can’t get enough! All of Season 1 is streaming on Hulu as well as the first few episodes of Season 2. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t yet!
