India Cook is a mentor on the board of advisors of the Coaches of Color Initiative, founded by Matt Fitzgerald’s 80/20 Endurance Team with the goal of improving diversity in endurance sports.

India and I go into the details of the project and touch on how the world of recreational endurance running is beginning to change for the better. She is an uplifting and inspirational person to talk to and I know you are going to love this conversation as much as I did.

With her background in mental health, she has a unique perspective on helping runners of all ages and ethnicities run confidently in any phase of their lives.

This week’s show brought to you by: Magnesium Breakthrough from Bioptimizers.

Supplementing with magnesium before you go to bed has been shown in scientific studies to…

  • Increase in muscle oxygenation during high intensity exercise
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Significantly improve sleep quality
  • Improve aerobic exercise capacity when training.

When you’re looking for a magnesium supplement, make sure you take one that is organic and has all 7 unique forms of magnesium.

My recommendation is Magnesium Breakthrough from Bioptimizers because it’s made with the highest quality, organic magnesium and contains all 7 critical forms. Most other magnesium supplements are synthetic and only contain one or two forms of magnesium, which is simply not enough.

For an exclusive offer go to and use code run10 to save 10% when you try Magnesium Breakthrough. Plus, they offer a full refund up to one year after your purchase, no questions asked.
