SISU:RADIO:25 Todd Sedlak > Feet on the ground, roots in endurance.

Having served for 10 years in the US military, Todd’s background prepared him for his time doing events like the Spartan Hurricane Heat, the Death Race and World’s Toughest Mudder.

What makes Todd that little bit different is that he’s not a believer in training. To him, the mental side of events where the body is pushed holds more weight. In this podcast, Cookie from Team SISU talks to the veteran about events he’s completed, some he didn’t and his time at Spartan Race when it was only a fledgling company.

WWS:03 Doug Muir: A Raw, Honest to Goodness, No BS Rags to Riches Story

About Your Host Jim Harshaw

My name is Jim Harshaw. And I know where you’re at. You’re working hard and qualified for what you do but you aren’t getting what you want. You have plans on getting to the C-suite or launching a business but ultimate success seems as far away today as ever. You’re at the right place because you can get there from here.

And I can help.

Who I Am

I’m a speaker, coach and former Division I All American wrestler that helps motivated former athletes reach their full potential by getting clarity on their what they really want and taking aggressive action to lead their ideal life not just despite their prior failures but because of them.

I’m a husband and father of four. And I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve launched multiple successful businesses as well as the obligatory failed one. I’ve been the executive director of a non-profit and have raised millions of dollars. I’ve worked in sales. I’ve even been a Division I head coach. While I was born in a blue-collar home I have spent my life surrounded by Olympians, CEO’s and millionaires.

Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I’ve been lucky.

I’ve learned the habits of successful people and guess what. You’re just like them. I know because I know your type. You’re programmed for hard work, which is a prerequisite for success, but you’ve never been shown how to use what you know to create the life you want with the tools you have.

I will show you how.

Why You are Here

You’ve worked hard to achieve greatness. You’ve set goals and maybe even set records. You’ve definitely failed and you’ve at some point found yourself questioning if you were on the right track.

You need to understand this: You are far more prepared to succeed than those who’ve not tried, competed, struggled and overcome like you have. That’s the value of your education as someone who aims high. You are prepared to be as successful as your wildest dreams will allow.

Here I will teach you, with the help of brilliant minds that have been shaped by failure, struggle and adversity, to be who you want to be. I sense that you want this because you have read this far.

SISU:RADIO:24 Maria Hernandez – Explosives can come in small packages.

Quietly destroying events without fanfare or a flurry of unnecessary hashtags, Maria Hernandez’s meteoric rise from couch to SISU Ironwoman in only three years is story befitting of the SISU motto.

Dipping her toe in the OCR world as late as only three years ago, she leaves behind her a trail of conquered events, but always thirsty for more. Starting out with a Spartan Sprint, she has set her sights higher and higher and now brushes off endurance events like they barely even register.

Cookie of Team SISU caught up with Maria recently and spoke to her about her time in OCR and Endurance to find out what it is that makes her tick, why she does it and what advice she can give to those that are looking at immersing themselves in the world of obstacle racing and endurance events.

Winning the rough days

Goodness. It’s been a while! Things have been shifting over the past month and a half for me! This year, April brought exams, two unexpected injuries, and (after 5 years in London, Ontario) the reality of packing up my life into two big suitcases and moving home (permanently?) to Alberta! It’s both scary and exciting knowing that I won’t be returning to London in the fall, but rather, I’ll be embarking on a new adventure… as a Master’s student at the University of Alberta. (What?!?!)

 

Though I’m so ridiculously fortunate to have a fantastic family and job to return to, I always struggle a little bit when I move home — many of my friends from high school aren’t around anymore, so my summers are typically filled with work, running, and family. It’s honestly so wonderful, but it’s definitely a change of pace! During the school year I like to keep my schedule packed, but when I come home, things slow right down. For the past few summers, running has kept me busy after work, provided an outlet for me to release my extra energy, and given me something to focus on.

 

IMG_5300

My family is the bomb. I’m a hardcore fangirl of my fellow Frissell’s. <3

 

But this year, things are a little different. I’m struggling with a few injuries and adapting to some new stresses. It’s been a real mental challenge not being able to run lately — since that’s my usual release, I’ve got some pent up energy and stress!

 
So to help ward off negativity and frustration, I’ve identified a small list of daily personal goals that, when achieved, keep me feeling my best. These are the tiny things I need to check off each day in order to feel good — when I feel good, I’m more motivated, optimistic, joyful, focused, and more likely to make the choices I know are right for me!

 

 
In order to feel good each day, I need to

 

  1. Connect with nature — for me, this might be as simple as a 10 minute walk or watching a rainstorm from our deck. I just need to feel an intentional connection with the natural, outside world.
  2. Take care of my body — this might mean using it and/or resting it. Whether I’m sitting on the couch icing my leg, heading out for a tough workout, or doing some focused breathing before bed, I feel good engaging with and taking care of my body (and indirectly, my mind).
  3. Go to bed a little bit hungry — this one’s pretty specific, but I sleep noticeably better and wake up feeling much more energized when I go to bed with a bit of an empty stomach!
  4. Connect with family/friends — I’m a notorious over-thinker, so it’s crucial for me to get out of my head and connect with people I care about.

 

 

IMG_6079

I get to connect with nature every day at the cemetery. Two years ago I was fortunate enough to meet this little angel, Margo!

 

Super simple tasks, but they make a massive difference in my mental state! Perhaps your list looks similar, or maybe there’s no overlap. I challenge you to notice what your ‘feel good’ list is made up of, and write it down. Even if you’re injured, travelling, sick, or if your day just doesn’t go quite as planned, you can fall back on these simple things and turn even the roughest day into a win.

SISU:RADIO:23 Wesley Kerr: Dr. Redpants is operating.

Quietly carving his name into the arm of endurance sports, Wesley Kerr has a string of impressive records to his name. Having already set the fastest lap at World’s Toughest Mudder, he has, amongst other things, now added the title of Sisu Ironman to his already long list of impressive feats.

His relentless pursuit of faster times, more inclines and seemingly impervious-to-failure performances begs the question, “how does he do it?”

In between his studying, Wesley kindly took the time to speak to Cookie of Team SISU about how base in fitness and where the famous red tights came from.
