My Year of Running Dangerously by Tom Foreman

Tom Foreman Has Some Great Tips for Balancing Running and Life (Best Of)


Today we are taking a little trip down memory lane, and reliving my chat with Tom Foreman.

When this episode first aired back in October of 2015, I had many people tell me that they loved this episode.

If you haven’t caught this episode before, enjoy! And if you’ve been listening since Tom and I chatted back in the day, I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as I have.


The Allure of the Peculiar

Since getting back into running a few years before our chat, Tom has run a lot of different races. And some of his favorite races, at least at the moment, are the “odd” ones.

Stop Sacrificing Runs Because You’re “Busy” (with Video)

We are all busy.

Life is blowing by us at a million miles and hour, and sometimes we just wind up with so much on our plate that something has to give.

As much as it saddens me to admit this, there are (too many) times that running is the thing to go to make room for other “stuff”.

Stop Sacrificing Runs Because You Have a Busy Life

Life isn’t going to slow down for many of us any time soon.

Are You Sacrificing Runs Due to the Speed of Life?

Are You Sacrificing Runs Due to the Speed of Life?

So in order to continue to find time for the things we most need in our lives, and running is definitely on that list for me, we may have to be willing to be creative and/or make some sacrifices. Read more

No. More. Excuses.

Excuses are Like Opinions, & You Know What They Say About Opinions…

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

~Arthur Ashe

How many times have you wanted to do something (running or otherwise), but didn’t because you weren’t ready to start today or didn’t have all of the tools/knowledge you’d need to get the job done or because the something just seemed to be too much?

You don’t have to publicly shame yourself today, but it’s worth thinking about all of the times we’ve made excuses to stop us from taking action towards our goals/dreams/desires.

Actions Trump Excuses. Every. Single. Time.

Since I talked to Gary Stotler for the podcast a few weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about some of the parts of his journey.

Remember how he said it took him 18 months to take his first running steps?

18 fricking months! Are you kidding me?

When he got started on his mission to turn his health around, he didn’t waste time making excuses.

No. More. Excuses.

No. More. Excuses.

Gary started where he was. Read more

Is it just me, or is life a little crazy right now and only getting crazier?

Christmas is fast approaching and a New Year is right around the corner, and for many of us as the year winds down our stress levels rise up.

Holiday Stress Got You On Edge?

Holiday Stress Got You On Edge?

We stress out about getting the perfect Christmas presents for our friends and family.

We stress out about traveling to be with family for the holidays.

We stress out about the end of another year and all of the things that we didn’t do this year.

We stress out about the start of a new year and what the future holds.

We stress out about our rising level of stress!

We need to relax. We know we need to relax. And for some reason, getting ourself to relax is next to impossible.

Here’s a suggestion, go for a run. Read more
