The “Big Guy” And The Power Of Community (Podcast #48)

the big guy and the power of community

You are not alone.

It can be easy to think you’re all alone, on a little island, whether you’re struggling with nutrition, fitness, or specifically running. I’m here to tell you… you are not alone.

Ted Spiker joins me on Episode 48 of the podcast to talk about exactly that.

I’ve got some food for thought that might just change your mind…

snake oil and deception in the fitness world

I love what I do, and I take it seriously.

This is important… crucial… and in some very extreme cases… even life or death. So naturally, while I do enjoy my job… I also take it very seriously. Which is why I have absolutely no tolerance for those who would play the system and play the people for a quick buck…

I don’t know what possessed me to do so… but I did. I’m glad, too. I learned a few powerful things that might not otherwise have occurred to me…
