When Life Gets Crazy, Veteran Tim Nichols Turns to Running


Running was never something that Tim Nichols did a lot of, until he joined the United States Air Force and didn’t have a choice! Now that he is no longer active duty, he finds himself running fairly often but on his terms and at his pace.

While running isn’t Tim’s focus in his day to day life, he has learned over time how important it is to have a release when life gets stressful and he has found that running can be a great way for him to relieve that stress.

We covered lots of ground on our run today, and here are some of the highlights:

  • What basic training is really like, and how much running is actually required.
  • Running was a chance for some alone time on the base in Afghanistan.
  • Now, running allows him to get away from work, clear his head, and increase productivity.
  • Adjusting to life now that he isn’t living within the rigid structure of military life.
  • Diving into new his new passions of podcasting and craft beer.

Best place to find Tim online to connect with him, find info about both of his podcasts (The 52 Week Start Up and Brewing Business) is on his website. http://brewingbusinesspc.com

Steady Progress

Steady Progress Leads to the Results You Want

Three weeks into 2015, how are you doing with your goals/resolutions for the year?

If you’re like me, you’re working on some big things this year, and three weeks is barely enough time to put  a dent into any of them. The fact that so little progress has been made to date could be seen as frustrating if I wasn’t fully committed to the task at hand.

Make Steady Progress

No wonder so many resolutions struggle to make it past the three week mark. Read more

I think that as runners, and I know I’m guilty of this, we feel like we have to constantly keep running or we will lose the fitness gains we worked so hard to achieve. I know that I’ve been hesitant to take time off because of this, and I was excited to have Katy come on the show and talk about why she’s taking some time off. Read more
