Ohmmmmm......This episode I spend a little time with yoga instructor Jen Stevens to discuss how you can incorporate this ancient art form into your weekly training. The benefits may surprise you!

In this episode I talk about how to be ready to run in cold weather head to toe, watching what you put in your body, and how long you can expect it to take for your body to stop fighting it, and accepting that you are a runner!
This episode I spend some time interviewing one of our podcast community listeners story from couch to his first marathon. David has been a coaching client of mine for a little under a year. In this interview we discuss his journey over the course of a year from the couch to his first Marathon. The first segment of the interview was conducted just 2 days before the LA marathon and David and I were able to discuss the training so far, pre race optimism, strategy, and just the overall feeling you have right before your first marathon. Then we pick right up just one day after the race to get a full report of how the race felt and what David experienced. I am so proud to have seen him progress from zero miles to a marathon in just a year, what a great accomplishment. I hope you are inspired, motivated, and equipped after following along on his journey.

Super excited about this interview but I am kind of a NERD when it comes to my garden. As you also know I love food, particularly the idea that healthy whole food doesn't have to taste bad. In fact, it tastes great!!!
In this interview with Dana Richardson and Sara Zentz we talk about their first full length production called Back to Eden. Then we spent some time chatting about their trip down to the copper canyons of Mexico to live with the Tarahumara indians and learn how they live, grow their own food, and celebrate running as a culture. They are also considered a "cold spot" for the 3 biggest diseases in most modern countries today, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. They have almost 0%! Maybe it's time we started thinking about what we are putting in our bodies, especially as athletes who want to get the most out of life.
I hope you enjoy this episode, please head over and donate before March 12th to help this movie get wrapped up so we can watch it in the fall! It's going to be awesome.
So, what are you going to grow this year? Leave a comment below and tell me how this episode inspired you?
I really enjoyed catching up with my friend from Colorado, Jerry Armstrong. This interview is more of a casual conversation with someone who has run way more miles than I have. He had some really great tips on learning to enjoy running, training safely and some books that have changed his life.

Its all about the "ions"!
Actualization, Simulation, Visualization, Rationalization, Concentration, and Relaxation. In this episode I break down each of these "ION" words to help you become a more mentally strong athlete.
In your search for "THE ZONE" you will need to address each of these areas in your training so you are prepared and able to deal with a variety of racing and training situations. Do you know how to visualize your race? How should you spend time simulating the course you are training to run on?
I'd LOVE to hear from you!
