QT: How Valuable is an Improvement of One Percent, Really?


If you’re like most runners, and probably most people in general, patience isn’t your strongest suit.

If you have big goals, you know it’s going to take some hard work over time in order to reach your goals.

But if you’re anything like me, you like to see some big chunks of progress on occasion to confirm that you’re on the right path.

While we know that one percent of improvement is still an improvement, it’s easy to overlook that small amount of growth as trivial.

Over time, however, a one percent improvement can be huge! Read more

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.

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

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

QT: Proactively Addressing the Obstacles in Your Path
