Episode 6 - How To Find Your First (Or Next) Race!

5/20/2019
More
The most helpful resource that I use to find races is Running In The USA! In my experience, they have the most functional and cleanest race search engine that I know of. Running In The USA: https://runningintheusa.com/ I also mentioned a few others, like "Raceplace" and "Active". I don't use those sites very often, but there are still a good handful of races on those websites. Raceplace: https://www.raceplace.com/ Active: https://www.active.com/ Also, running friends are a great way to...

More
In this episode, I mention the concept of how to stretch before running. To which, I would say that the more helpful concept might be "warming up" rather than "stretching". That being said, there are a LOT of dynamic warmup movements that runners can do before they run. Below are a few links to give you some ideas on dynamic movements you can do before running. Different stretches have different levels of effectiveness for different runners, so feel free to experiment and build your...

In this episode, I tackle three ways or methods I've personally used to stay motivated to run. One method is more philosophical in nature, while the other two methods tend to be more practical. I have used a combination of the three methods to keep me running all of these years! Here's a link to the book (The Motivation Myth by Jeff Haden) I was talking about in this episode: https://amzn.to/2JnsrpX Find out more on the What The Run?! website.

Episode 1 - What is a 5K?

5/4/2019
More
SHOW NOTES In simplest terms, a 5K refers to a 5-kilometer (or 5 km) race. And, 5 kilometers is roughly equal to 3.1 miles. If you want to see the “Runner’s World” magazine article I referred to in the podcast episode, click here. If you want to check out the Hot Chocolate 5K race in Chicago that I mentioned, click here. If you don’t remember anything else, a 5K: 1) is a great first-time race due to its short distance (relative to the longer race distances), 2) tends to be...
