Plantar Fasciitis Video Course

Get Rid of Plantar Fasciitis Forever!

Plantar fasciitis is one of those ailments that too many runners have to deal with on way too regular of a basis.

And it’s a shame, because in almost every case, plantar fasciitis is completely preventable.

As I continue to narrow my scope when it comes to the content I create, my ideal coaching clients, and the reason that I do what I do, it always comes back to helping runners avoid running injuries in their training and racing.

Especially the more common injuries, like plantar fasciitis.

I’m Excited to be Partnering with Bombas

If you listened to Monday’s podcast episode with Greg Unger already you’re in the loop, but for those that haven’t I’m excited to announce that I have recently agreed to a sponsorship deal with Bombas!

Bombas

In case you’ve never heard of Bombas, allow me to shine a little light on the company and why I’m so stoked to be partnering with them.


I can’t speak for everyone, but I know that when I got into running one of the last things I was concerned with was getting “running socks”. I just kept using the same old cotton socks I’d been wearing for year, meanwhile I upgraded my shorts, shoes, and just about everything else I had that was running related.

Then one day, I decided to “try” some “wicking” socks, so I bought the cheapest 3 pack I could find at Target, because I couldn’t figure out why I should spend more than a few bucks for socks to run in.

Oh sweet ignorance…

To be honest, I definitely noticed the difference between the wicking socks and the old cotton stand bys, but I pretty much just assumed that any “running” sock would be as good as the next.

And I now know that I was incredibly wrong.

As soon as I put my first pair of Bombas on, I could immediately tell the difference. Not only were these socks super comfortable (seriously y’all, it’s like clouds have swallowed your feet when you put these babies on), but I don’t even notice my feet getting even a little bit sweaty when I’m running.

And I’m running in Florida, remember, where swamp foot is a constant struggle.

So what makes Bombas feel so comfortable?

A few things.

They put some serious research into creating the best socks imaginable for people leading an active lifestyle, from the type of cotton they use, to the y-stiched heel, to the built in arch support, and the invisitoe “seam”.

In short, they made sure they were making the most comfortable sock on the market, and I’m here to tell you Bombas hit it out of the park.

Bombas Socks

And while these socks are worth every penny (promise!), the reason that I’m most excited about working with Bombas is because they are a company that cares as much about giving back as they do about creating the best socks on the market.

In fact, the company was founded BECAUSE of a desire to give back.

Did you know that socks are the #1 most requested clothing item in homeless shelters around the country?

Neither did I.

But when the founders of Bombas heard this little piece of information, they literally decided to start a company with the goal of solving the problem.

And, in my opinion at least, they go WAY above and beyond when it comes to giving back.

For every pair of Bombas socks that are sold, the company donates a pair of socks to a shelter in need.

To date, over 300,000 pairs of socks have been donated to shelters across the USA. Like I said, this company is all about giving back.

A quality socks for runners created by a quality company with the spirit of giving back. This is exactly why I’m so happy to have joined forces with Bombas.


So if you want to upgrade to the best running socks you’ve ever used, and make a serious difference in the lives of people in need at the same time, what are you waiting for?

Go order some socks!

Oh, and one more thing.

Bombas wants to give you 20% off of your first purchase, all you need to do is click any of the links in this post and you’ll go to a special page where you can put in your email address and they will send you a 20% off coupon code.

My advice, take advantage of the deal and buy some great socks!

 

*FTC Disclaimer-In addition to the monetary agreement I made with Bombas, they also provided me with 2 free pairs of socks so that I could try them out. That said, the opinions expressed in this post are mine and mine alone, and in no way are they influenced by anyone associated with Bombas. Seriously y’all, the socks are bad ass. Get some!

Group Training for the 2015 Wine and Dine Half Marathon

When it comes to preparing for a race, what works best for you?

Since runners tend to be social creatures, the group dynamic seems to be pretty popular when it comes to deciding how to train for a race. And if you’re getting ready for the 2015 Wine and Dine Half Marathon, you might want to check out my program.

Just a Little Heads Up for my Fellow Winers and Diners

If you’re reading this post, odds are you are a somewhat regular reader of the blog.

And for that, I really want to say thank you.

I’ve had a lot of people ask me about potentially offering some kind of group coaching program, and I’ve held off on that for a variety of reason. But that’s about to change.

And I want to give those of you that are subscribed to the blog a little heads up and what I’m doing and give you a chance to get in on the action (if you want) for a super low price.

I’m super excited about this.

I’m putting together a group training program for one specific race, and it just so happens to be my absolute favorite race at Walt Disney World-the Wine and Dine Half Marathon.

You’re going to be hearing a lot more about this program in the coming weeks, but until registration opens on Tuesday, I’ve slashed the price from $97 to $37. So if you’re thinking about running this race, and if you’re thinking you’d like to meet some awesome runners and have a specific program in place, I’d encourage you to jump at this opportunity.

All of the details are available by clicking this link, and I’ll be explaining much more about what I’ll be offering going forward.

But please know, with what I have planned, the regular price for this is a steal. So take advantage.

And if you’re not sure, there is a 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. So grab it for $37, and if you decide to change your mind as you learn more about it, no harm no foul.

But I can pretty much guarantee, you’ll be glad.

A Running Coach Without the Title

Does a running coach NEED to be RRCA certified?

images-3

This is a question I’ve been kicking around in my head for some time now.

As I’m now taking on clients as a running coach and creating training plans for runners of all race distances, I’ve gone back and forth on whether or not I should pursue RRCA certification as a coach.

I don’t think I am going to. Read more
