Matt Orlando has No Question About Where His Priorities Lie


On today’s episode of the show, I’m running with Matt Orlando aka The Runner Dad.

Matt Orlando aka The Runner Dad with His Family

Matt is someone that I can relate to on a number of levels. As much as we both love running, our lives are busy with family, work, and a number of other obligations that consistently pull us in all directions.

During our chat today, we talk about race highlights, future plans, goals, and the ability to lean on running as a stabilizing force during the highs and lows of life. Here are some of the highlights of our chat: 

  • No desire to run another full marathon, but open to the idea of running an ultra
  • The allure of races like Western States
  • Meeting his wife through training for a race via Team in Training
  • How TheRunnerDad.com came into fruition
  • The power of Twitter to connect us normal people with the “big name” people
  • The seasonal aspect of blogging and running
  • The power of having long term running goals to keep motivation up
  • Viewing running as the friend that’s always there for you–in good times and in bad

If you want to connect with Matt, the best places to find him on social media are on Twitter and Instagram. And you can also check out his website, which is really a great site!
