146. Amelia Boone on Battling Your Inner Critic, the Nuances of Confidence, and Improving Self-Talk
Play • 47 mins

Amelia Boone is a giant in the obstacle course racing world and she's started competing in ultramarathons over the last few years as well. Many of her fans know she has struggled with an eating disorder and spent time in treatment last year. She’s now in recovery, she just moved to Colorado, and she’s been riding her Ellipti-Go on the Front Range’s big climbs over the last few months. 

Jason has always looked up to Amelia and admired her work ethic, her talent, and her drive. But also her vulnerability and how she invites us along as she deals with her struggles.

Amelia gave Jason some courage last year to share how losing his grandfather was so incredibly hard and the toll that it took. In this podcast, she gives us a glimpse of how she pushes through challenges and the things that she continues to struggle with.

In this episode as Jason and Amelia discuss:

  • Reframing criticism
  • The fine line of "trusting your body"
  • Self-talk and mantras during a race
  • The slippery slope of too much confidence

I hope you take away some lessons from this episode because no doubt, there’s a lot to learn from such an admirable human being.
