Today’s guest is Stasia Honnold. Stasia is an adventurer. But not just any kind of adventurer – she’s a human-powered adventurer. So what does that mean? In short, she bikes, she hikes and she runs. And rarely does she use a car do to any of those. She’s a woman who makes up her own adventures and figures out how to execute on them with lots of planning and organizing. As Stasia says, she lives by a set of values and makes her life choices based on these values – doing no harm – and in doing so, she’s living simply as well as on her own terms. It was my intention to highlight Stasia for being Stasia. And not mentioning her family ties because she deserves recognition in her own right for what she does. But talk about her family came out naturally during our conversation. And what I’m talking about is the fact that her brother is Alex Honnold, who free solo’d up El Capitan and who you can learn all about the Academy Award winning movie, Free Solo. Her mom, by the way, is Dierdre Wolownick and I’ve had Dierdre on the podcast a couple of times. That was episodes number #127 and #83 so you can go back and listen to those to get a fuller picture of the family. Stasia writes about her adventures on her blog, carfreerambles.org and I encourage you to read her beautiful writing there. With that, please enjoy this conversation with Stasia Honnold. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?

Today’s guest is Liz Grantham. Liz is the founder of The Optimal Me, a fitness app created specifically for those over 50 and it focuses on getting people functionally fit with exercises that take just 15 minutes a day. Liz and I dive deep into the importance of movement as we age. And not just moving (like me, with running) but by doing exercises that help with every day movement--like lifting your luggage into the overhead bin of a flight. As Liz points out, 2.8 million people die each year from obesity. 2.8 million! But no one is talking about that (likely because it’s not contagious). But it’s for this very reason that she’s motivated to help people keep their mobility and stay healthy well into late life. While it wasn’t her intention to create an app that would keep us in shape during a pandemic, the timing of this is quite good as we should all be staying active and functional and staying happy and fit so that when we get out of this, we’re in the same or better shape than when this whole thing started. I think you’ll really enjoy this conversation (not least of all because of her very charming South African accent). With that, please enjoy this conversation with Liz Grantham. ***** Have a burning question and want to be featured on a future episode?
