The Cheap Athlete Balances Financial Frugality and a Passion for Running


Today I’m going a few easy miles with one of the most frugal runners I have met.

The Cheap Athlete Himself

He embraces his frugality fully, to the point where he goes by the moniker of cheap athlete online.

C.A. is a serious athlete though. He is an Ironman, Boston Marathon Qualifier, former Division I swimmer, and a daily bike commuter.

Seriously, it just made “cents” to bring him on the show today. hehe Read more

In addition to running and blogging, Jesica has also completed several triathlons ranging in distance from the short sprints to a half iron man.

And she has the goal of completing a full iron man at some point in the not too distant future, which qualifiers her as being as crazy as the ultra runners among us.

In addition to being a runner, Sara is also a triathlete, a competitive mountain biker, a hockey player, and personal trainer so obviously being physically active is very important to her in all areas of her life.

Her varied interests in the health and fitness world provided plenty of things to talk about during our run today. In addition to talking about the marathon that she’s training for, we also talked about her experience representing Team USA in the world triathlon championships, her worst sports related injury, and a local fitness challenge she is holding at her gym in Missouri.

Here are some of the highlights of our conversation. Read more

Greg Unger

Greg Unger Lives Life with a “Go Big or Go Home” Attitude


On today’s show, I’m joining a Greg Unger for a few easy miles.

Greg has an amazing story when it comes to his evolution as a runner, starting off as a very serious body builder before diving into the deep end of the running scene. And as you can see, he doesn’t exactly look like your typical marathoner/endurance athlete.

Greg wasn’t a runner growing up, but he definitely was into lifting weights. At some point a few years ago, he decided he wanted to drop a little bit of weight and started to dabble with running here and there.

As his health habits improved and he continued to feel better, he really got into endurance sports.

And the rest, as they say, is history.
