QT: All We are Saying, is Give Change a Chance (Best Of-ish)

This post was originally part of Episode 607 released in August of 2018 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.

I was listening to the Jordan Harbinger Show the other day, and something that was mentioned on the show really stuck with me.

The discussion had nothing to do with running, but Jordan and his guest were talking about how quick people are to try something once and then give up because it was too hard or didn’t go the way they had planned.

They gave a metaphor of having an old cabin out in the woods that you only visit once a year. And every year when you get to the cabin, you have to turn the water on and let it run for a few minutes to flush out the pipes before the water will once again be clean and safe to use for drinking, cooking, and whatever.

And as I listened to the discussion, I kept coming back to the idea of letting the water run.

If you don’t give change a chance, your situation may never get better. Or easier. Or provide you the benefit you were seeking in the first place. Read more

QT: Sometimes a Change Really Will Do You Good

One thing that I struggle with, more than I care to admit, is the idea of change.

We Fear Change

That said, sometimes that’s exactly what needs to be done. Read more

QT: Don’t Create a Problem Where One Doesn’t Exist (Best Of-ish)

This post was originally part of Episode 406 released in April of 2017 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.

I’ve had conversations with a number of runners lately that revolve around the same concept: trying something new for no particular reason.

Hypocrite Warning

Yeah yeah. Hypocrite warning blah blah blah.

Here’s the deal: I’m all for trying something new.

Any runner that is looking to take his or her running to a new level by running faster or running farther is likely going to want to try some different training techniques, gear, fueling options, etc along the way to help them improve.

I get that.

But use your heads when it comes to trying something new; stop trying to fix a problem that doesn’t even exist! Read more

QT: A Little Change Can Be a Good Thing


How do you feel about changing things up?

As you might be aware, I’m a fan of a good routine and sticking with the status quo.

We Fear Change

I’m not sure that I necessarily fear change, but I am sure that I don’t very often like change.

Yet, sometimes change is a necessary thing… Read more
