Babbittville Classic Rewind: Chrissie Wellington 2008 This interview with Chrissie Wellington is from June of 2008, about eight months after she won her first Ironman World Championship title in Kona, Hawaii. Paul Huddle and I had a blast chatting with this amazing young woman.

Ep 81. Chrissie Wellington OBE, World Ironman Champion

The Women's Running Podcast

In this episode I speak to Chrissie Wellington. Chrissie is so enormously famous in the world of running (and cycling and swimming) that she really needs no introduction. Chrissie is actually part of the Women’s Running family – if you read the magazine you may have noticed her crop up in our annual Product Awards, in which she plays a big part. So we’ve spoken before, and it is to my utter shame she hasn’t appeared on the podcast to this date. We talk about her meteoric rise into professional sport – how she made the leap in the first place, how her coach saw her potential in the ironman distance, and how in fact she didn’t really come from nowhere, as everyone says – it was just an unconventional start with tons of experience of endurance, even if that was cycling around Nepal rather than around a track. She also talks passionately about the unifying and empowering force of sport, a belief that has moved with her from the world of professional sport to her current day job as Global Head of Health and Wellbeing at parkrun. She is super inspiring and happily overlooked the Zoom call from hell – we’ve done our best with this one, but do please bear with a slightly glitchy call in places. It gets better!We love making this podcast for you, and we hope you love it just as much. If you do, we’re asking for your support so that we can continue making it.

Intuition: Chrissie Wellington

Life Lessons: From Sport and Beyond

The power of tapping into our internal guidance system - and trusting that it will take us where we need to go. Chrissie Wellington is one of the greatest athletes of all time: a four-time Ironman World Champion who broke the world record and retired undefeated. More importantly, Chrissie is a humble, kind and generous person (which is not always true of people who have reached such lofty heights!). Chrissie wasn't one of these athletes who set a goal to become World Champion aged eight and then went on to achieve it. She bobbed and weaved - and had the courage to listen to her intuition and follow it - and her meandering route to success culminated in her becoming a World Champion. As Chrissie says, we all have that intuition within us. Many of us can't hear it - while others do hear it but choose to ignore it. Some do listen to their intuition, trust it and follow it - and Chrissie is a living embodiment of what is possible when you do that. We also talk about connection, what we can learn from children, the stories we tell ourselves and the innate and intrinsic value we all have as human beings, regardless of what we do. Chrissie has two fantastic new books out for children: "You're so strong (The joy in simple)" and "You're so amazing". Both highly recommended. *** NEWSFLASH We are changing the name of this podcast to "Life Lessons: From sport and beyond" Nothing will change bar the words on the artwork, and I explain why we are making the change at the start of this episode, with a BBC Radio 4 Today programme backstory. In a nutshell, research shows that Don't Tell Me the Score doesn't explain what this pod is all about - so we are really spelling it out. Let me know your thoughts @simonmundie or drop me a message via my website simonmundie.com - I would love to hear your thoughts and will try and reply. *** Follow me on instagram https://www.instagram.com/simonmundie/ on twitter https://twitter.com/simonmundie And for the 'Mundie on Monday' newsletter - full of useful lifehacks and 'nuggets' head to simonmundie.com See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
