178. Weight Loss Principles Every Runner Needs to Know Part 2: Exercise
Most people will agree that exercise should be included in any weight loss plan. Unfortunately, most people think that exercise should be the ONLY component of their weight loss plan.

In this episode of the podcast, I’m talking about the comfort crisis and how our insatiable quest for comfort might just lead to our downfall.
