QT: Silencing Your Inner Hater is Easier Said than Done (Best Of-ish)


This post was originally part of Episode 310 released in September of 2016 and is more or less copied and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a completely new take on the topic.

It may come as a bit of a surprise to you, but I don’t listen to very many running podcasts.

I promise I’ve got nothing against the other running shows that are out there. I just don’t tend to really get into other running shows.

What I do get into, however, are business/entrepreneurial types of podcasts.

One quote that I hear on these types of shows is from Jim Rohn.

Jim Rohn 5 People

The idea behind the quote is that if you surround yourself with people that will build you up, you’ll blossom and grow.

And if you are surrounded by people with negative energy, they will drag you down.

What is often overlooked is the fact that the voice in your head is one of your five. Read more

QT: The Accuracy of Treadmill Data and Purchasing Considerations with Thessaly Nicolaysen


This is the third and final installment of the treadmill mini-series with Ms. Thessaly Nicolasen.

If you missed the first two chats, here’s what we discussed:

  • The first week we talked about why Thessaly loves the treadmill and how to fight the boredom factor.
  • In week two, we covered treadmill workouts and potential injury risks associated with the treadmill.

To bring it home, today we are talking about trusting the data on the treadmill and things to consider if you’re thinking about buying your own treadmill. Read more

QT: Choosing Workouts and Minimizing Injury Risk While Running on the Treadmill with Thessaly Nicolaysen


In this week’s Quick Tip, I’m once again joined by Ms. Thessaly Nicolaysen to talk about a subject near and dear to her heart: treadmill running.

Last week we talked about why Thessaly loves the treadmill so much and some ways to fight the potential boredom factor associated with running on the torture device.

This week we are diving into two topics that are a bit more in my wheelhouse: workouts and injury concerns. Read more

QT: Overcoming the Boredom Factor of Treadmill Running with Thessaly Nicolaysen


Every fall/winter, I get a handful of questions centered around running on the treadmill.

As you may have heard, I don’t exactly “enjoy” treadmill running.

Thessaly Nicolaysen, however, is a fan.

Thessaly is joining us for the next few weeks of QT episodes to discuss treadmill running and offer some tips for those that may find themselves on the human hamster wheel at some point in the future. Read more

Running in the Dark

QT: Go the Extra Mile for Safety When Running in the Dark (Best Of-ish)


This post was originally part of Episode 331 released in November of 2016 and is more or less copy and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you’re probably aware that the amount of daylight hours is rapidly eroding as we approach the winter solstice.

If you’re a runner, and I’m assuming you are if you’re reading this, that means there is a very good chance you’ll be running in the dark in the coming weeks and months.

Running in the Dark

For some of us, running in the dark is pretty much business as usual.

I do the majority of my running before the sun comes up year-round, so if you’re new to running or don’t log many pre-dawn/post-dusk miles, here are some things I’d encourage you to keep in mind when you find yourself running in the dark this winter. Read more
