Epi. 133-Rising Above, Setting Records With Nate Riech

There is no one, not even the most reckless of gamblers, in the world that would’ve put money on Nate Riech to be a world record holder. Never mind the near impossible odds we face between the numbers games and nature and nurture of it all, Nate was never supposed to be able to compete again after a golf accident left half of his body paralysed at a young age. With determination and grit, paired with time, rehab and therapy, Nate got to a point where he could compete with able bodied...

Epi. 131- Aarhus To Oxy, Running Faster 5000s With Erica Digby

Here’s to the runners that don’t necessarily have that big break out moment. The runner’s who take a little bit off each season and show true grit and persistence, trying to maximize and squeeze every little bit out of themselves. Our guest this week, Erica Digby, mostly fits into that category, if you follow her year to year progress, it's been consistent and linear. This year has been a bit different though.

Epi. 128- 25 Times Around The Track In 28:39 With Farah Abdulkarim

Cliche dictates, overnight successes rarely happen overnight...and as tired as that turn may seem, there is certainly truth to be attached to that phrase...especially when it comes to distance running, where mere seconds are often only shed after years of mileage and workouts . It’s for that reason that I’m sure many across Canada and the United States were left wondering, “who is Farah Abdulkarim, and how did he run a 28:39 10,000 at the Mt. Sac Relays?” How did he go from being a 31...
