If you want to learn how to run your best marathon, you should listen to this episode.

Sometimes running your best might not be your fastest. I had a very chill and deep conversation with a runner’s life podcast host, The Marathon Marcus.

Ironically enough, his podcasting skills enabled him to poke some holes at some of my questions and assumptions. I love this and personally learned a lot from it. Speaking of learning…

What You Will Learn

  • Embracing the variables that happen in a race and view them as a better experience
  • Why time goals shouldn’t be everything
  • Deep explanation of his rented fitness analogy
  • How his podcast dispels the myth of what a runner’s life really is
  • Why viewing wherever you are as a potential spectrum (example – if you are injured, just try to be your best as an injured runner. Don’t compare yourself to the fittest and healthy version of yourself. That’s not fair and will lead to disappointment and stress.
  • And Much More
