In 2011, a doctor told Tania - then aged 42 - that she wouldn’t live to see grandchildren if she didn’t stop smoking and drinking.

That distressing doctor’s visit 7 years ago started a chain reaction of events that has led Tania to become the first woman to run the length of the Hume and Hovell Track - a 453km track from Yass to Albury in regional NSW.

Her time of 8 days, 12 hours and 39 minutes is now recognised as the ‘fastest known time’ (FKT) for a woman over the Hume and Hovell.

So how does a mother and grandmother who only started running a few years ago become an FKT record holder in just 7 years?

That’s what we explore in this conversation.

Tanya Geisler is a Leadership Coach from Canada who specialises in working with women regarding their experience with the Imposter Complex.

Tanya was one of my first guests on the podcast; episode #007 back in April 2017.

That conversation was not only one of the most popular episodes from 2017, but it is also the most profoundly impactful episodes.

If you haven't listened to that episode, I'd encourage you to press 'pause' and go back and listen to that episode first (you can find it here). 

Since that episode was published, I have lost count of the times someone has said to me (after listening to that conversation) words to the effect of: “I didn’t know that was a condition I could have”.

Over the last 18 months, Tanya has explored what is on the other side of the Imposter Complex.

Her answer: ‘unshakeable confidence'.

So what does it mean to be ‘unshakeably confident’?

That’s what I ask Tanya in this episode.

Jo joined me on the podcast back in episode #38 in November 2017.

In that conversation, we discussed Jo’s background and history, why she started running at 35 and the way in which she’s struggled with comparison, feeling like an imposter as well as how it took years for Jo to call herself an ‘athlete’ and mean it.

If you haven’t listened to that episode, I’d encourage you to listen to episode 38 first.

Almost one year to the day later, Jo and I pick up where we left off and cover the events, and lessons, of the last 12 months.

Since we last spoke, Jo has finished her 1st 100mi (160km) race.

Then, in January this year, Jo discovered she’d won a lottery spot to enter one of the world’s most famous ultramarathons; Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (or UTMB), an incredible 100mi / 160km race that passes through France, Italy and Switzerland as you run around the Mont Blanc massif (yes, you literally run around the mountain!)

Sadly, Jo’s race at UTMB didn’t turn out the way she wanted after she missed a cut-off around the 100km mark.

So what happens when your biggest fear comes true?

That’s what I explore with Jo in this conversation.

Kate is a psychologist, mountaineer and ‘free spirit at heart’.

A rock climber and mountaineer (who also served in the Army for 10 years), Kate has a unique perspective on how to manage fear, the thoughts we believe and the stories we tell ourselves.

We dive deep into the topic of fear on this episode and discuss:

- why spending time in nature is such a powerful source of confidence for women (hint: it’s about the facades we carry in our everyday life),

- why fear is actually a good thing, and being fearless is bad,

- the physiological response that occurs in your body when you feel fear - whether that fear is real/immediate or perceived,

- why you can’t think straight when you feel anxious, and tactics you can use to calm your anxiety and get your brain functioning again (I’ll vouch for the 4 second breathing exercise she mentions; I’ve been using it a lot in the last week or two),

- why mantras and affirmations work and why you should ‘let the body climb’ (or swim or run or ride or whatever it is you love to do), and

- how you get to choose which thoughts you believe (and it is a choice).
