Why Incorporating Mental and Strength Training into Your Race Training is a Powerful Combo

Why Incorporating Mental and Strength Training into Your Race Training is a Powerful Combo

April 8, 2021

It wasn’t until after Wendy Braithwaite moved to Ottawa, Canada, that she started her running career. In 2012, the federal government was undergoing workforce adjustment, and she was counseling employees who had lost their jobs. The stress of the situation was overwhelming, and she started running to have an outlet to get out all the emotions from the day.

In 2013 she ran her first half marathon. In 2015 she ran my first marathon, and in 2017 she ran her first 50km ultra marathon. Fast forward to today, she has completed 13 half marathons, 10 marathons, 1 ultra, and 1 Boston Marathon Virtual Experience. 

Her road to Boston started the day she crossed the finish line of her first marathon just over 5 years ago. She just missed the qualification cut off by 37 seconds. She knew she had it in her, and it lit a fire within that has brought her to where she is today -- an overcomer. The most impressive part is that she doesn’t let her MS keep her from doing what she loves, and she uses it as fuel to keep fighting!

If you haven’t listened to the first part of this chat, I encourage you to go back to it, as she shares her story and how she overcame many struggles to hit her goal of a Boston qualification. She shares her heart and leaves it all out there for us.

Are you ready to dive into the lessons she’s learned and the mindset that helped lead her to a Boston Marathon qualification and a personal best time at the virtual Boston race?

Why This Mother Runner Won’t Let Multiple Sclerosis Keep Her from Crushing Goals

Why This Mother Runner Won’t Let Multiple Sclerosis Keep Her from Crushing Goals

April 6, 2021

Wendy Braithwaite knows what it’s like to have many ups and downs as she goes after her goals. The struggles she’s faced probably would have made most of us quit, but she is determined and keeps fighting to achieve the dreams she sets for herself.

A big part of Wendy Braithwaite’s story is her diagnosis of MS. She was diagnosed with MS in 2002, while living in the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains. MS was a shock, and with no family history, it was an enigma, and a new battle to fight. She had a difficult time in the beginning, but had great medical care, and stabilized over the years.

Her main goal is to cross the finish line on Boylston Street one day, and she’d like to do another ultra, even though she said she never would do that again. Wendy learned that you should never say never because, otherwise, you may end up doing exactly what you said never to!

Be Authentically You // 3 Lessons Learned in One Year of Podcasting

Be Authentically You // 3 Lessons Learned in One Year of Podcasting

March 30, 2021

March marks the one-year anniversary of the Red Hot Mindset podcast! I can hardly believe we made it through this past year, but how cool is that? I've learned many things along the way, but I wanted to share three of the major things I've learned in my podcasting journey this past year, and I think they can help you as you go after your own goals:

  1. Be authentically you (everybody else is taken).
  2. Don’t worry about what other podcasters are doing (follow Holy Spirit and where he guides you and the words he gives you).
  3. Keep going, don't quit.

Overcoming Food and Body Issues and Finding a Peaceful, Healthy Relationship with Food // Interview with Erin Todd

March 16, 2021

I have a special guest with me today to share her transformation story with you. She’s a recovering perfectionist and chronic dieter, has battled an eating disorder, and even hit her weight loss goal but learned that it failed to satisfy her. She had a spiritual awakening in 2017 where God showed her that dieting was an idol, and today we talk about that awakening, what surrendering that idol was like and how it’s changed her life.

Three Steps to Hold Loosely to Our Kids // Thursday Tidbits

Three Steps to Hold Loosely to Our Kids // Thursday Tidbits

March 11, 2021

Today’s Thursday Tidbits plays off idols in our lives and how to avoid them. One way to avoid creating idols is to hold things we love loosely - hold our kids loosely, hold our finances loosely, hold our passions or hobbies loosely. When we hold on too tightly is when these things can consume us and turn into idols that control us. Today we’re going to talk about this in relation to our kids. I’m sure we’ll discuss the other topics further in other episodes, but there’s enough to talk about just in this one area.

My Personal Journey of Identifying and Breaking Idols in My Life

My Personal Journey of Identifying and Breaking Idols in My Life

March 9, 2021

On last week’s Thursday Tidbits, I had my friend Michelle Landrum from Loves7Grace on to share with us three tips on how to identify idols in your life and what to do once you’ve identified them.

I decided to do a more personal episode today to share different idols I’ve had throughout my life, but as I prepped for this episode, I’ve revealed how quickly or easily anything can become an idol in our life if we’re not intentional and proactive with our focus! I’m hoping through my story you’ll be able to see any idols you may have in your own life and be able to begin the journey of releasing them.

How to Identify Idols in Your Life // Thursday Tidbits with Michelle Landrum

March 4, 2021

Today’s topic is about idols in our lives, and sometimes it’s hard to see them because they may not always be a physical statue! They could come in many forms - money, career, kids, marriage, and so on. I know you’ve been on a journey of revelations with this topic and revealed and released plenty of idols in my own life. I'm excited to bring back my dear friend Michelle to help us with this topic!

Michelle Landrum is a wife, mom of 5, and a Certified Natural Health Professional who homeschools her kids. She was a corporate executive with experience in customer analytics, marketing, and technology. Michelle has a diverse set of experiences and wants to share the things she’s learned along her journey in hopes that it inspires and empowers others to live victoriously.

Thursday Tidbits are short and sweet episodes filled with tangible tips you can implement immediately! My goal with these topics is that you can use them to fuel your growth as you focus on being intentional in every area of your life. Let’s get into today’s Thursday Tidbit.
