Sometimes… you just can’t hold it in.

Most days I have a lot on my mind. Things bug me, but I don’t always take up a whole podcast episode to get it out of my system.. Sometimes, though… I just have to let it out and talk about it. Today is one of those days. I saw something on my way to work the other day that just sent me flying.

We’re fighting a war.

Yes. a war. And today, I’m gonna tell you how to WIN. Today is all about letting you know how to win the war on apathy and ambivalence.

Why Do We Run… And What Does It Take? (Podcast #51)

why do we run and what does it take

There’s more to a race than you think.

There’s so much that goes into a race, yes, of course, from the participant’s side… but from the Race Director, too. I was fortunate enough to have a chat with a buddy of mine, Jay, who is both a runner AND a race director (I find the best ones are) about exactly what’s involved. Jay joined us in the studio to chat about runners, both “normal distance” and ultra distance… the differences between the two, and what makes us tick. He also talks about what it takes to be a race director for both crowds (and in general). We talk about Anchor Down 24 hour too… but there’s so much more than that… We talk about endurance… the beauty of running… and, really… the human spirit.

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.

How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You (Podcast #46)

How To Embrace The Powerful Secret Weapon Inside You.

There is REAL power deep inside you

I feel like I talk about this every single day… I also feel like it’s not really given the weight and consideration it deserves. “Belief” has incredible power and weight. Simply believing something hard enough can make it real. Yes, really. I’m saying that belief, attitude, and how you approach life can have real, physical manifestations. Don’t believe me? I’ve got some food for thought that might just change your mind…

3 Powerful Life Lessons I Learned… In A Graveyard.

3 powerful life lessons I learned in a graveyard

The dead still have plenty to teach us.

I had a plan. It was going to be a good 10 mile mid-week run and I was going to brainstorm for the podcast. I had a topic and I was gonna flesh it out. Then I ran through a graveyard. 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…
