Joshua St John Post Squamish

Committing to the Process Helped Joshua St John Overcome PTSD & Depression


Today I’m running with friend/listener of the show, and a man who recently finished his 1st ultra, Joshua St John.

Joshua has only been running for a handful of years (at the time of this recording), and after getting out of the military his health took a pretty serious turn for the worst. He was taking medication for PTSD and depression, one of the side effects of the medications was weight gain gain.

After some time, he knew he needed to make a change for his health and he started walking.

At that point, it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that vacuuming the house was physically demanding, so simply getting out of the house and walking was a very positive step for Joshua both mentally and physically.

The hardest step is always the one out your front door, and that never changes. ~Joshua St John #runchat Click To Tweet Read more

Tim Nichols

When Life Gets Crazy, Veteran Tim Nichols Turns to Running


Running was never something that Tim Nichols did a lot of, until he joined the United States Air Force and didn’t have a choice! Now that he is no longer active duty, he finds himself running fairly often but on his terms and at his pace.

While running isn’t Tim’s focus in his day to day life, he has learned over time how important it is to have a release when life gets stressful and he has found that running can be a great way for him to relieve that stress.

We covered lots of ground on our run today, and here are some of the highlights:

  • What basic training is really like, and how much running is actually required.
  • Running was a chance for some alone time on the base in Afghanistan.
  • Now, running allows him to get away from work, clear his head, and increase productivity.
  • Adjusting to life now that he isn’t living within the rigid structure of military life.
  • Diving into new his new passions of podcasting and craft beer.

Best place to find Tim online to connect with him, find info about both of his podcasts (The 52 Week Start Up and Brewing Business) is on his website. http://brewingbusinesspc.com
