Four-Time Obstacle Race Champion Amelia Boone on Mastering the Art of Suffering
Dubbed “The Queen of Pain,” Amelia Boone is a corporate attorney at Apple by day and an obstacle endurance racer by night. She signed up for her first Tough Mudder race at age 28 when she realized she couldn’t do a single pull-up. Since that day, she became obsessed with getting stronger and went on to become a 4-time world champion and one of the most decorated obstacle racers in history — all while working full-time at Apple. Here's how Boone learned to conquer the mental aspect of racing, how she confronted a years-long challenge with an eating disorder, and why she believes that your profession doesn't have to be your passion. --- Stay up to date by singing up for The Profile, our weekly newsletter that brings you the best profiles of successful people and companies.

Amelia Boone: Elites Have More to Offer Than Just Running - R4R 232
The Running for Real Podcast
“Running is a very small part of me as a person. So I do think this entire past year has been a great exercise for athletes to embrace all parts of themselves. To realize that you have more to offer than just running. To feel free to speak your mind about it.” — Amelia Boone Love, community, and a strong support network. I think the number one thing I've been seeking all these years is community. Eating disorders are very isolating. They’re diseases that thrive in secrecy, she says. It wasn't until understanding that all those lies and secretiveness were impeding the things that I wanted in life: love, community, and a strong support network. Aligning Actions with Core Values The biggest thing in this past year for Amelia is making life decisions in accordance with the values that are important to her. Number one is community, which is the reason she uprooted herself and I moved to Colorado from California because that’s where the majority of her friend group is. Her advice is listing your core values and the things that are motivating you and then trying to align your actions with that. Something that helped her navigate this was ACT therapy: acceptance and commitment therapy. We're not athletes in a vacuum Running is a very small part of Amelia. She shares that this past year has been a great exercise for athletes to embrace all parts of themselves. What makes you unique apart from running and sports. For her, she’s involved with plenty of other things including being an attorney. Ask yourself– Do you realize that you have more to offer than just running on and like your field? Feel free to speak your mind about it, she says. “Yes, I still run most days, but it's probably third or fourth on my list of things.” Looking ahead “I'm just trying to embrace it as another year of adventure on being okay with the unknown,” Amelia says. The number one thing to focus on right now is just compassion. Compassion for yourself and compassion for others, because everyone is going through different battles right now. And that, to me, is the one thing that we need more of in this world is just total compassion for each other.
