Shiz Gerami is an elegant, eloquent, and wise woman who is inspiring so many. Whether she realizes it or not, she is setting an example for other women that they can pursue their dreams, even when faced with barriers that seem impossible to break through.
Tricia Downing is a disabled athlete (or as she says, we could debate the fact that we all have disabilities for hours!). In September 2000, she was struck head-on by a car during a bike ride and paralyzed from the chest down. After a period of recovery, acceptance, and reframing her purpose in this world, Tricia has become a true hero to many.
The first word that came to mind when I met Jen Hanzlick was genuine. Add non-judgmental, humble, and full to the brim with vision for a better world. Her business, Clutter Trucker, a hoarding removal & clean-up service, helps people when they are at the lowest points in their lives.
Meet Jenny Hadfield, prolific running coach and mentor. Jenny is one of the most knowledgable, most down to earth, most REAL coaches in the world of running. Her mission is to help people learn how to train to improve performance, reach their goals more efficiently, and create a plan that works with the flow of their busy lifestyles.
Meet Robyn O'Brien - unintentional food activist. Over a decade ago, she watched her youngest child go through a severe food allergy and was suddenly thrust into the world of food allergy education. Her finance background set her up to be a natural fit in this world as she was able to both translate the data in this very confusing industry and relate it to everyday moms just like her.
Meet Gunhild Swanson, the oldest woman to ever finish the 100-mile Western States race. And finish she did - with 6 seconds to spare - in 2015, Gunhild gave everything she had to squeak across the line in 29 hours 59 minutes 54 seconds.
Meet Pam Burrus, founder of Moms Run This Town / She Runs This Town. I met Pam a couple years ago in a coffee shop in Chicago and we immediately hit it off. Let's just say we didn't need coffee to summon any energy! Pam is all about helping women find their happy place.

Welcome to Episode 6 of Run This World. Today’s episode features Erin Carson, former pro athlete, "Trainer to the Tri Stars," owner of RallySport in Boulder, and generally awesome person. Erin has such an open, nurturing view of the world. She truly wants people to enjoy long, happy lives. As she says, "There are a lot of winners out there. If you can finish and say, 'I did the best I could,' then you win. That’s winning."
Meet Rip Esselstyn, a man of many talents. I first knew Rip as an incredibly talented pro triathlete who raced against my husband Tim in the mid 90s. After his triathlon career, he became a firefighter in Austin, TX. It was there that he founded the Engine 2 empire which started as a macho “who has the lowest cholesterol” contest between firefighters and has become a massive movement in the plant-powered arena. He’s one of those people who is truly changing the world and I can’t wait to share his outlook with you.
