QT: Goal Check! Are You on Track for Success This Year?


How are you doing with your 2019 goals?

As this post goes live, we are officially 7 weeks into 2019.

Earlier this week, I did a goal check in the FB group, and I thought it might be a good time to do one on the podcast/blog as well.

(And to be clear, while I’m talking about goals for 2019 in this post/episode, the same principals apply no matter when you’re listening to this episode/reading this post and no matter what your time frame happens to be.)

So, I’ll ask again, how are you doing with your goals this year? Read more

QT: Maintaining Perfect Balance Between Running and Life is Impossible


The subject of balance is something that gets talked about a fair bit.

As runners, we talk about finding the balance between our running/training and all of the other things that we have going on in our lives.

But is the concept of balance something we should even be striving for?

Is it even attainable?

My Take: The 2019 Big Beach Marathon


As this post/episode is released, I’m a week out from running the Big Beach Marathon in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

I’m not one for writing a detailed race recap of my performance on race day. So if that’s what you’re looking for…

Sorry

Yeah, I’m not really that sorry.

What I am up for doing is sharing my perspective on the Big Beach Marathon as someone that has run the race.

What things does this race get right? Where could they improve?

So that’s what I’m doing today.

I’m giving the basics below, but the podcast will have much more detail (ie I’ll probably be rambling like a mofo). So if you want the full scoop, make sure you press play above!

(And if you’re not already subscribed to the show on your phone, get on it eh?) Read more

QT: Make Sure You Have Fun While Chasing Big Goals


As you probably are well aware, I am a fan of big goals.

My two big running goals are to BQ (and run Boston, obvi) and to run a marathon in every state.

Neither of these goals are close to completion at this point.

If I’m going to be realistic, I’m a solid decade away from hitting the mark (minimum) on each front.

I’m cool with this fact, and more than willing to continue to put in the work required to achieve both of these goals in the future.

In the meantime, I might as well have a little fun, eh? Read more

QT: The Problem With Procrastination for Runners


If you saw the post in my IG story recently, you know that I got a new podcasting toy to play with!

Thanks to the support of several listeners via Patreon, I recently purchased a Zoom recorder so I can do interviews on location.

Up until now, I’ve either had to have someone come to the house to do an interview in person (which has happened a couple of times) or utilize skype to connect with my guests.

Finally, I’m able to interview people in person which I really think is going to help me take my interview skills, and hopefully the quality of the show, to another level. Read more
