Goldie Van Horn Does More Than Wonder About How Far She Can Go


My guest today is someone that I’ve chatted with on Twitter for the last several months and I finally came to my senses to have her on the show for a proper conversation.

The timing is just about perfect since she just recently ran her first marathon.

Needless to say we will talk about her first 26.2 today and who knows what else as I go a few easy miles with Goldie Van Horn today.

QT: Running Outside in the Cold of Winter (Best Of-ish)

This post was originally part of Episode 184 released in November of 2015 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.


Believe it or not, winter is fast approaching and for some folks it’s already here.

  • Running becomes a bit more complicated.

QT: Staying on Track with Your Training During the Holidays (Best Of-ish)

This post was originally part of Episode 652 released in November of 2018 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.


It’s that time of the year, y’all.

Whatever holidays you do or don’t celebrate, things tend to get a bit crazy between now and about the 5th of January.

Holiday parties at work. Family. Travel. All the treats. All the drinks.

Point blank, staying on track with your training during the holidays is a bit of a challenge, to put it mildly.

That said, if you’re a bit strategic, you can come out the other end no worse for the wear.

And if you really play your cards right, you can continue to make progress toward your goals at a time when a lot of people take their foot off the gas.

I’m glad you asked! Read more
