Episode Re-release: Sasha DiGiulian

Roam from Home

In this episode, one of the best rock climbers of all-time, Sasha Digiulian, sits down to talk with Cory and I about her life, her career, and Adventure with Purpose. Sasha shares how she strives to find harmony and has rolled with the punches during her career - and at this challenging time. At 27 years old she has already had a decade-plus long career in climbing and adventure. The conversation covers her storied career and what she’s up to now while quarantined and recovering from major surgery. She dives into what it’s like to try and balance an athletic career with life, education, relationships, travel, and how she has learned to both confront and shut out the noise of social media.  She describes the power of commitment, discovering “just being” and struggling with the question of “does everything happen for a reason,” while she has been dealing with post-surgery recovery, the death of a friend, and quarantine. Sasha drops some real pearls in this conversation. It’s a great one for all of those who are looking for a dive into the concept of Adventure with Purpose and tools for confronting the unavoidable challenges life has in store. -CJ How to navigate the hard choices of career balance Coping with multiple hard things at once: injury and surgery and the death of a friend Does everything happen for a reason?

34. Climber Sasha DiGiulian on breaking records, bullying and overcoming injury

Opening the Playbook

Climber Sasha DiGiulian joins Opening the Playbook to discuss where her love of the sport comes from, how she handled being bullied, and the pressures that come with being one of the most famous faces in the sport. Sasha has been climbing since she was six years old and received her first sponsorship when she was 12. Since then, she’s become a World Champ, 5x PanAm Games Champ, 3x US National Champ, and has broken more records than you can count. She’s also proudly been a first for many climbs, which she says comes from wanting to push herself and show others what she can do. Sasha also dives into being bullied by a fellow climber in the sport and how she stood up to it. She says it led her to becoming a strong advocate for women in sports, especially in the climbing world. But that's not all. In today’s episode, Sasha discusses how losing her dad at a young age helped shape her into the person she is today, and how it also changed how she climbs. And finally, she touches on undergoing hip surgery seven months ago, which is the longest she’s had to step away from the sport. Episode topics: Being one of the most recognizable faces in the climbing world How she learned to get over her FOMO while recovering from her injury Dealing with her father’s death at a young age How she handled being bullied by a fellow climber The difficulties of fitting in in the sport Quote:  “Climbing definitely has a bro’s club in the sport…and I think if you don’t fit in and you’re not trying to be like a “cool girl” and roll with the punches when the punches hurt a lot, then you can be demonized and seen as someone who doesn’t belong. And I definitely experienced a side of that.” Resources: Guest Info – Sasha DiGiulian Instagram: @sashadigiulian Twitter: @ sashadigiulian Facebook: Sasha DiGiulian Website: http://sashadigiulian.com Outsidetv – 10AM on a Tuesday http://www.outsidetv.com/show/detail/10AM+on+a+Tuesday/play/94RGdNYE/1/100/cfg4grUN/1 Host Info – Christina Heydanus Instagram: @tinaheydanus Twitter: @tinaheydanus Show Info – Opening the Playbook Website: https://www.openingtheplaybook.com Instagram: @openingtheplaybook Facebook: Opening the Playbook
