As a by-product of the pandemic, I've seen more running burnout recently than normal. If you're in this place, it's ok. It's not your fault, but you do need to be proactive about dealing with it BEFORE you get after chasing your next goal. In this episode, we talk about the definition of burn-out, the causes of burn-out, and what to do both mentall…
 
Zola Budd Pieterse has every reason in the world to hate the sport of track and field, but she doesn't. Instead, she gives back to it in ways that will help today's young stars experience it in a much more positive way than she did. It has not, however, been an easy journey. Zola grew up on a farm in South Africa before suddenly being thrust on the…
 
The long run might be the most important element of any training program. And yet, many of us and many training programs aren't optimizing it. Or worse, the long run is executed in a way (often by running it too fast) that is counter-productive to training. In this episode, we talk about why the long run is so important and then how to get the most…
 
What price would you be willing to pay for telling the truth? What if you knew it would cost you your home, your livelihood, your security, and nearly your country? Would you still speak up? Would you still do the right thing? Whether they know it at the time or not, that is the choice often faced by what the world calls "whistleblowers." We call t…

Hillary Allen is used to defying the odds. She did it in graduate school when her running career began, rising from a first-time marathoner in 2012 to the very top of the sky running world in just five short years. She did it again in 2017, surviving a 150-foot fall on the trails which nearly killed her to return to the podium in her sport just ove…
 
There is nothing more inspiring to me that watching an athlete set a big goal, do the work, and then execute a plan to smash that goal. In this episode, I tell the story of Roberta Gibb, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon in 1966 and share my 5 lessons in goal smashing from her story. What's your goal and are you ready to do the work to sma…
 
You might know Anthony Famiglietti (nicknamed “Fam”) as the two-time Olympian in the steeplechase with an aggressive, front-running style on the track. You may not know his other side as the quiet, introverted artist who sees the world a little different than the rest of us, including a unique perspective on the world of clean sport. In this episod…
 
In episode 227, we talked about priming yourself for the training to come for races in the fall. In this episode 229, we take that one step further and lay out a 22-week periodization plan for fall half marathon or marathon training, allowing you to build to a hypothetical peak in October. We answer one fundamental question: How should you sequence…
 
Last week, I saw a poignant letter from Lauren Fleshman to her younger self (linked below). It inspired me to think about the lessons I might share with my younger running self. In this episode, I give you (and the younger me) 8 lessons from my 20+ year running journey. Some are focused on training mechanics, while others are focused on how to unde…
 
The birds are chirping, spring is in the air, and the virtual Boston Marathon just opened for registration. With fingers crossed and simultaneously knocking on wood, hope is building for real, live, in-person fall races to happen. If that's true, then training for those fall races starts soon! In Austin, we will be kicking off our fall training on …
 
Tenille Hoogland (@hooglandt) has a fascinating story in sport from growing up in Canada as a province-best synchronized swimmer to a later career as a pro triathlete. She wanted badly to make an Olympic team, but that dream never became a reality. During that time, she also spent time within the Rogue community in Austin as an athlete and coach. N…

In this episode led by Chris and Adam, we find out all about Nick's career, which now spans nearly two decades, from growing up in New Zealand to now joining the corporate world with Tracksmit…
 
Elite, amateur, and all degrees of fast, for those pushing toward a big goal, we all face self-doubt as runners. It might come as the everyday narrative in our heads or the fleeting thoughts that make you question yourself in a race or workout. Either way, it's important to develop tactics to deal with self-doubt so that you can smash your biggest …
 
With this episode, we release an important follow-up conversation with Dawn Harper-Nelson. In our preparation for our original interview with Dawn, we missed an important detail that should have been central to that first discussion.

In this episode, I start with an intro discussing my perspective on the virtual race announced recently by the Boston Marathon, where all athletes are allowed to participate. Then, I turn to a discussion on tips and recommendations for building toward a breakthrough race. What will it take for you to get that PR, that milestone time, or that Boston…
 
You don't want to miss this episode with Dawn Harper-Nelson because we can't think of a better person to showcase on this International Women's Day. Dawn is a fierce competitor and loving mom with an absolutely infectious personality. She's earned 4 global championship medals on the track including a gold, 2 silvers, and a bronze, but her story has…
 
After a week off due to complications from the winter storm in Texas, I am back to you this week with 49 minutes all on the recovery run. As a coach, one of the biggest mistakes I see is runners taking their recovery runs too fast. If you do that, then it's not a recovery run, and you are asking for injury. Plus, you are likely getting suboptimal o…
 
There are few in the sport that have so selflessly given back to it as Kevin Hanson, and he's been doing it for the last 40+ years. He has coached at every level from high school to community college to the pros. He and his brother started and continue to run the Hanson's Running Shops near Detroit, Michigan, and of course, they are also the co-fou…
 
You will commonly hear runners talk about getting to their "race weight" in order to achieve their goals on race day. I'm here to tell you that, as a running coach, I don't believe in that way of thinking. In fact, I believe it can be destructive and lead to under performance in many cases. In this episode, we talk about how to reframe the discussi…
 
You know Jim Walmsley as the 4-time ultra runner of the year who owns the course record at the Western States 100, the 50-mile world record, and now the US 100K record.

In episode 216, I discussed a book I had discovered during my sabbatical: The Pain Relief Secret How to Retrain Your Nervous System, Heal Your Body, and Overcome Chronic Pain.

In this short and sweet episode, I start with discussion on the new date for the Boston Marathon and give my predictions on whether or not the fall major marathons will happen.

Clare Egan has *only* been competing in the sport of Biathlon for 8 years, but she has already made a lifetime of impact. Yes, you could talk about what she's accomplished for the US on the snow and ice as an athlete. She's an Olympian and a World Cup podium winner after all. Her real impact, however, has come as chair of the Athletes' Committee fo…
 
As I enter 2021, one of the themes in my personal running journey is to get back to the basics of the work, to embrace and enjoy the fundamentals in order to lay a foundation for big goals still to come. In this episode, I talk about 5 pillars of a solid running foundation that will keep you happy, healthy, and getting faster in the sport for years…
 
For a professional runner, the resume of Alexi Pappas looks a little different than most. Even though she is an Olympian and 10,000m record holder for Greece, her running accolades might not even be at the top of the list. She's also an actress, filmmaker, and now author of her own memoir Bravey: Chasing Dreams, Befriending Pain, and Other Big Idea…

Marathon Kids has served over 2.5 million …
 
We dare you to tell Ali Jawad that he can't do something. He will probably prove you wrong just as he's been doing his entire life. Ali was born without legs, but he has never viewed that as a disadvantage. At age 7, he dreamed of being on an Olympic podium after watching Michael Johnson win double golds in the 200m and 400m in Atlanta. He finally …
 
I am excited to bring you this conversation with Michael Krajicek, founder of Atreyu Running. Michael's story is a fascinating one as a renaissance man who has made a living as a gig player in the music industry, as the owner/operator of a novelty hot dog restaurant, and now as the visionary behind the running shoe subscription business called Atre…
 
Track and field is full of thousands of athletes who train hard, seeking glory without a sponsor and unsure of where they might earn their next check to cover rent and food.
