200: 200 Episodes and Running

200th Episode (01_04_2018)2

This is an episode that at one point I didn’t think was going to happen! Find out why during this episode, and listen in to hear motivating stories with two “everyday” runners, Jeff Strasser and Julie Marienau. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating a podcast via the “unofficial” producer of The Running Lifestyle Show (TRLS), Meaghan Nana-Sinkam. Also, Serena Marie, RD, and I share our favorite TRLS episodes.

Jeff Strasser and I specifically discuss the following:

  • How he was inspired to take on a distance that he never thought was possible after he heard what former Navy SEAL, Jeff Webb (guest of Episode 158), had to say about running the Marine Corps Marathon
  • Running a half marathon with his son
  • How meditation and running have positively changed his life
  • Why he originally started running
  • What he receives by being part of the running community

Longtime listener and supporter of the show, Julie Marienau, and I discuss the following:

  • How and why she’s a morning person now
  • Why she is running the Dopey Challenge, and why she’s going for personal worsts

Meaghan Nana-Sinkam and I discuss the following:

  • What goes into creating a podcast
  • Favorite TRLS memories

Serena Marie, RD, and I discuss the following:

  • How she got “picked up” in a grocery store and ended up on a podcast
  • How her running has evolved over the years
  • Favorite TRLS episodes with Gretchen Rubin and Tom Bilyeu
  • How surreal it was to get to hang out together in NYC at a meet-up with Tom Bilyeu of Impact Theory
