In today’s episode, I’m talking with author Matt Fitzgerald about a whole array of topics. We cover his running history from the day he decided to be serious about running as a kid, to giving it up during college, and the serendipitous events that brought him back to the sport.

On the author side of the things, we talked about several of his books that pertain to running, healthy eating, and his newest book looking at the role our minds play in our running.

Here are some of the highlights from our chat. Read more
