12. Why Running Doesn’t Work for Weight Loss
Being overweight is not something that’s not talked about very much (or at all) in the running community. There seems to be some stigma around being a runner and being overweight. In this episode, I’ll share why running is not a very effective tool for weight loss, and why you need to treat the underlying physical, mental, and emotional aspects of overeating if you really want to lose weight for good.
11. How to Manage Your Mind During Uncertain Times
These are some very uncertain times we are living in right now. Races are canceled, schools are closed, restaurants and bars are closed, most people are working from home, and what’s next? How bad will it get? What can we do about it? The truth is, there’s not a lot we can do about the situation “out there”. What we absolutely CAN do is take control of our THOUGHTS about the situation.
10. The Incredible Power of Your Mind
The most powerful thing in the entire known universe is the human mind. So how do we use it? Most people use their minds to create stress, anxiety, and depression for themselves. They don’t use their minds to create positive thoughts and positive emotions, they constantly worry that things aren’t as they should be. If only they were thinner, or their husbands treated them better, or they made more money, then they would be happy.
9. What Happens When You Take Radical Responsibility
Are you blaming someone or something else for the way you think, feel, or act? Or are you taking responsibility for all of your own thoughts, feelings, and actions? Today on the podcast, I break it all down and show you the major differences between blaming others and taking radical responsibility for all of your results in running and in life.
8. How to Change Your Past
Most of our problems are created because we’re trying to change something about our past.

Today on the podcast, I’m going to explain what’s really going on here and show you exactly what to do to effectively change your past.
7. Randy Kreill on the Joy of Running Ultramarathons
Randy Kreill is a cool cat and a passionate ultrarunner. In 2019, he ran 13 ultramarathons including 6 100-milers. He does it all on a plant-based diet and running in sandals! Randy and I are fast friends, we could talk forever (we laugh a lot during this interview btw), and he’s such an inspiration to me. I know you’re going to love his energy!
6. How Your Thinking (More Than Anything Else) Determines Your Results
Last week I talked about how all of your problems are actually created in your head – by your thoughts. Today on the podcast, I explain how your feelings drive all of your actions and those actions determine your results – good and bad!
5. Your Problems Are All in Your Head
Today on the podcast, I talk about how ALL of your problems are actually created by your thoughts. You can’t have a problem unless there’s a thought and an unwanted feeling about something. This is some mind-blowing stuff that I hope you can wrap your head around because it WILL change your life!

3. Melanie Owen on the Mindset Required to Run Across Death Valley in the Summer
Recently I had the chance to talk with someone I really admire, someone I’ve been watching from a distance. One of the reasons I’ve been paying attention to Melanie Owen is because she’s a lot like me (and probably you)–a weekend warrior. Melanie is a fairly average runner, she works a regular job (she’s not a professional runner), and she runs because, well she just loves running.
