Today’s guest is an endurance athlete with a zest for adventure. That zest has taken her from struggling to finish a local fun-run and learning how to swim as an adult; to completing 18x Ironmans, including finishing 2nd in her age group at the world championships in Kona.
But if that wasn’t enough, her thriving coaching business saw her ride a wave of success until the day she found the anxiety and panic attack-inducing stress of running her business brought her to the edge of losing it all.
But facing the challenges and learning lessons the hard way, she was able to rebuild and went on to participate in what’s arguably the world's toughest adventure race: Eco Challenge Fiji.
Now, if you’ve had a chance to watch the race on Amazon Prime, you’ll know why I wanted to speak with her. Her openness, dogged determination, and the fact that she’s a self-proclaimed “tough chick” makes her totally one of a kind.
I can’t wait to share with you the conversation I had with this mother, athlete, and host of the new podcast “Tales of Toughness” - Sonja Wieck.

If you want to do HARD THINGS, then we need to stop living in fear, or listening to the voice of doubt in our heads. Fear will keep us standing still, and standing still is death.
