Pablo Rodriguez: The Man Behind Running Costa Brava


Since I started running regularly, one of my favorite things to do when visiting a new place is to take a self-guided running tour of the area. On today’s run, I’m joining Pablo Rodriguez who is the founder of Running Costa Brava, which takes runner’s on tours of one of the most beautiful parts of the world, Costa Brava, Spain.

Rachel Mitchell is testing the waters as a professional runner, after graduating from Sacramento State in 2014 after a successful career as a collegiate runner.

Why You Need a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals

Do You Have a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals?

Goals are good things.

But what good are goals without a plan of action to help achieve success?

Not much.

Why You Need a Plan for Reaching Your Running Goals

If You Fail to Plan, You Plan to Fail

Success is not an accident.

If you want to be successful with your running goals in 2015, you need to come up with a viable plan. For example, my running goal for this year is to run 1300 miles, and I’ve gone less than 20 this month. Why? Just about every day I think about going running, many days I have even wanted to go running, but my “plan” is to run when I get everything done for the day.

Guess what? As a solopreneur, everything is never done, and therefore, the runs haven’t happened as often as I’d like.

So how will I be successful at achieving my goal for the year? It won’t happen by accident, that’s for sure! Read more

January Listener Q&A

Runner Q and A-January 2015


Back in August, I released a Q&A episode where I took questions from listeners of the show, friends on Twitter, people on Facebook, and anyone else that had a running related question that they wanted to get answered.

January Listener Q&A

And to date, it is the 2nd most listened to episode of the show.

Something new that I’m going to try for 2015 is making the last episode of the month a Q&A show. Obviously, the first Q&A show was very popular and I’m always getting questions from listeners and twitter followers (which I love, so keep them coming!), so I think it only makes sense to have a regular question and answer time on the show.

I think once a month will be a good frequency to start with, and I’m happy to adjust if there are enough questions to have to do this more often.

So let’s dive in. Read more

Bill Culver Got Bit by the Running Bug in a Serious Way


When he signed up for his first 5k, Bill Culver had no idea what he was getting himself into.

A little over a year later, he has run a lot of races, a lot of miles, and learned a lot of lessons about himself and about running in the process. While some of those lessons have been a little bit painful, both literally and figuratively, he is looking forward to using the knowledge and experiences of 2014 to help him continue to grow and improve as a runner in 2015.
