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. There is a larger community you are a part of whether you realize it or not, and there are many smaller communities still that you can become a part of intentionally. Ted Spiker joins me on Episode 48 of the podcast to talk about exactly that.

Yes, you DO have what it takes… (Podcast #47)

yes you do have what it takes

Run a marathon and change your life…

It’s no secret that I TRULY believe in the transformative power of running. When I go running for long enough I find my happy place, my mind can wander stress-free, and I can just… be. I realize it doesn’t work for everyone this way, but it does for me, and it does for many others. I’d love for more people to discover this… problem is, so many people out there don’t just think marathons are crazy… they simply think they’re not capable.

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

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…

Do You FEEL It?! (Podcast #38)

do you feel it? podcast 38

We’ve got some STRONG feelings about running… sometimes.

When you’re hot, you’re hot… and when you’re into running… boy, you are INTO it! You pour yourself into training, you get your significant other to help out and pick up the slack… you give it everything you’ve got! And God forbid something happens on race day to knock things out of orbit… like an extra half-mile added to your marathon… You’re going to be heartbroken. Or go ballistic. Y’know, depending on your personality.

But what happens when the love is gone?

We’re not ALWAYS going to be in love with running… or fitness for that matter. The question is… what do YOU do when you aren’t feeling it? Do you still do it? Or does it fall by the wayside?
