Welcome to episode 16 of Explore Magazine’s Live the Adventure Podcast.

The new year is starting. So let’s talk about goals.

Let’s talk about fitness.

Let’s talk about what it takes to achieve at a high level for many years.

Let’s talk about aging. And shoes, too.

Today, my guest is Malindi Elmore.

Malindi is a Canadian endurance athlete. She’s an Olympian, a teacher, a mom. She has reinvented herself numerous times, athletically and personally.

Perhaps most notably, she competed in the 2004 Summer Olympics in the 1500 metre and is planning a return to the 2021 Summer Olympics—but this time, in the Marathon.

Malindi joined me on a call to talk about this journey, the nature of reinvention, how we can support people on their path to achieving goals and so much more.

In This Episode You’ll Discover

  • What is it like to be a professional endurance athlete?
  • What is it like to be an Olympian—and what does reinvention look like as an athlete?
  • How do you effectively support people—children, partners, etc.—in their goals?
  • What does athletic sponsorship look like?
  • And so much more!
