1/11/2018
More
We're getting to the hard part. This is the time of year where the fun and excitement wears off, fitness gets hard, and we have to figure out how to stay on track. It's gonna be hard... but it CAN be done. It's not "New Year's" anymore... It's mid-January - the excitement and thrill of the "new year, new me" fitness thing is going to start wearing off soon.

This sucks. Plain and simple truth is... starting from scratch when you know where you USED to be is super frustrating. So, yes - we're starting over... and it's not the end of the world.

#70 - How To Do The New Year Right

12/29/2017
More
We've been here before. With the New Year looming we're sitting here doing two things - fondly (or not-so-fondly) looking back on the past year... and planning the next. We know what happens next though - things don't go as planned. If they did... we wouldn't be making "New Year's Resolutions"... would we? So how about this time... we do the new year right? There's a few things to fix, here... I'm sorry to say, it's not just the usual "things fall apart" situation that we need to...

12/22/2017

"A pebble in the pond..." We don't always think of ourselves as particularly "powerful", but maybe we should. Each and every one of us has the power to throw even just a pebble in the pond. The pebble may not make a big splash, but the ripple effect is not to be underestimated... Yes, the "gift" you give matters! Even a simple action can have immense consequences and effects. Simply put, it is ALWAYS worth giving your best effort to have a positive impact in the world. Even if you think...

12/15/2017
More
Sometimes... an event is... more... Every so often in the course of human existence... something truly beautiful happens. It's not always obvious and you don't always know it's happening. Sometimes, people can pass right through it and be none the wiser. But those who catch a glimpse... and realize what's going on... know they're witnessing, or perhaps understand that they're a part of... something truly special. That, FitFriends, is what has been happening in the small Northern Maine...

#67 - Keep It Simple - How To Find The Best Running Shoes

More
It's just SHOES... why is this so complicated? You would think buying a pair of running shoes is as easy as finding your size, making sure you like how they look, and paying for them... right? Well, sadly, that has not been my experience. On Episode 67 of the podcast, though... I chat with a man who wants to make it nice and easy to find the shoe that's best for you... and make it easy to buy it, too! For the full blog post and show notes visit the blog here.

Not everything is as "legit" as it seems. The internet is an amazing place. Think about it - anything you want to know... you can find it on the internet! Everyone's got a voice on the internet - if you've got an opinion, you can share it with the world! It's a blessing and a curse, though... What if you're trying to figure something out?

11/17/2017

The "holiday season" can be tough. On any normal day... life is hard enough as it is. Factor in everything that comes with the holidays... and it can be enough to derail anyone. It can be tough to juggle family, food, and travel. The easy option is to give up and stop trying to make nutrition and fitness work. I submit to you: there is a better way. This is my now-yearly pitch... I call it "The Holiday Survival Guide". For the full blog post and show notes visit the blog here. I get it....

Waiting doesn't have to be boring. We've answered the question of "now what?"... but that's not the end. "What's next" might not actually START right away. It could be a training plan that starts in a month. It could be any number of scenarios, really. So the question now becomes... what do I do with myself until then? How do I live... exist... in this awkward space between places? For the full blog post and show notes visit the blog here. What's in this episode: Episode...

When it's all done... what do we do? We spend months and months working towards a big goal race. Even more than that - we spend all year running, training, enjoying the weather and our sport. We cross the finish lines and make great achievements. When it's all said and done, though... now what? When we're left with no more races, and no more good running weather... until SPRING... what do we do? How do we deal with the fallout and aftermath of running season and our goal races? For the...

#61 - The True Gift The Ultramarathon Gives To The Worthy

10/28/2017
More
We must keep moving forward. There are so many contexts in which that statement is relevant. I've been saying it a lot lately in the gym, too - If you're not moving forward, you're going backward. This past weekend I learned, definitively, that despite what I thought... I was not moving forward. Despite running, jogging, walking and physically moving forward for 60 miles over the course of 18 hours... I was not moving forward. And in that... I learned something. It took me a few days to...

#60 - How To Smash Limits And Become The Impossible

10/19/2017
More
The "impossible" is done all the time. People say a thing is "impossible" for many reasons. Often it's because they simply don't fully understand it, can't fathom it, and thus dismiss it. Little do they know... the "impossible" is accomplished all the time. This weekend, I and many like me will go out to do exactly that - the "impossible". To finish a marathon is an incredible thing. For most people out there, a marathon represents a feat of incredible athletic ability. Many people set...

Society is ruining everything. Sorry to start off with a downer, but seriously... things are going to hell in a handbasket lately. It seems like nothing is sacred anymore, and the places we used to go to escape the noise are the latest victims being poisoned by the issues of today. Sport is a place that should be good, clean fun... but what I saw the other day tells me we're teetering on a very dangerous ledge. Bad attitudes are viral. All it takes is one bad apple to spoil the bunch -...

The irony is killing me. These show notes have been in draft form for a couple days now. The episode itself was recorded the day after I wanted to publish it. And here we are. Still just now getting ready to publish. I think it's safe to say... we all land in this boat sometimes, yeah? Nice to be my own best example. I had a whole set of notes typed up and ready to go for this episode. I hunkered down, did my best to focus, and cranked it out. I had a whole, somewhat inspiring thing...

9/29/2017

We're luckier than we realize. Most of us go through life taking for granted what we've got. I'm not saying we're spoiled... I'm saying we don't know any better. Just like a small child doesn't understand the value of a dollar... maybe we don't realize the value of the gifts we've been given... I've been thinking a lot lately... There's a quote that's been on my mind from Steve Prefontaine - a prolific track and field athlete from the 70's. "To give anything less than your best is to...

Sometimes... you just can't hold it in. Most days I have a lot on my mind. Things bug me, but I don't always take up a whole podcast episode to get it out of my system.. Sometimes, though... I just have to let it out and talk about it. Today is one of those days. I saw something on my way to work the other day that just sent me flying. We're fighting a war. Yes. a war.
