It’s no secret that we are living in strange and unsettling times. Our “normal” is challenged. We are living and working and teaching at home while the world is reeling from the Coronavirus Pandemic.
It is for this reason that we make a slight departure from a running focus and turn to our mental and emotional health. In this episode, Heather and Jen talk with the founder and CEO of Prezence, Colleen Hayes. Prezence is an app and a website which focus on being mindful. Colleen explains how we manage our health during this uncertain time, and we found this was an impactful conversation from which we hope all of you will benefit.
While Jen was out and about being her awesome self, Heather held down the podcasting fort with our dear friend and fellow coach, Laura Frye. As our first return guest, Heather and Laura trade stories about why they wanted to become coaches through the Road Runners Club of America, and the not-so-smooth path to get there. They discuss the changes in the sport of running, along with the continued “Old-School” thinking about what runners want from their journey.
The Olympic Marathon Trials were a big deal for the United States Team. Unprecedented numbers of qualifiers appeared in Atlanta to run for 6 slots. Three men and three women would be selected from a field of almost 700 runners. Heather and Jen discuss this amazing event and how it speaks to the evolution of running as a sport.
After a 3 week hiatus, Heather and Jen catch up over their latest adventures, including Jen’s experience Volunteering for RunDisney’s Princess 5k. They also chat about their love of women’s targeted races, and how they are a wonderful aspect to the running community.
In this inspiring podcast we sit down with Beth from TriTwinsMom on YouTube. Beth is an 8-time Ironman finisher and has run the Dopey Challenge multiple times. She talks about her journey and how she’s able to balance it all with her family.
In today’s Valentine’s inspired podcast Heather and Jen talk about what they love and hate about running. The loves certainly outweigh our dislikes and keep us coming back for more time after time. So while not every run is perfect, not every piece of gear is ideal and not every comment is loving, running does something for our hearts in more ways than one.
In today’s podcast Heather and Jen talk about what they wear for a race. We start by talking about our running kits and dive into how we elaborate on them for themed races like runDisney, run Rock n Roll, Wonder Woman, Holiday races and more. Whatever race you are running we hope that whatever you decide to wear brings you lots of joy.
In today’s exciting podcast Heather and Jen talk to the one and only collegiate runner Tim Catalano and Olympian Adam Goucher from Run the Edge. What started as a book has blossomed into a company that inspires runners and walkers alike to get out there and find something within themselves. Heather and Jen might say that Run the Edge is helping athletes find the awesome within themselves. We hope you enjoy this interview and are as inspired as we were.
When we invest so much time and energy in a big race event, many of us experience a let-down — an emotional crash post-race. Heather and Jen discuss how to cope in appropriate ways during this time in order to come back to running healthy and ready for the next goal.
In Part 2 of our Walt Disney World Marathon weekend recaps, we discuss the challenges and victories around the Marathon. Hot and humid conditions lead to record highs on January 12th, leading Heather and Jen to find awesome in many different ways.
On today’s podcast Heather and Jen dive into the WDW Marathon Weekend. We discuss the expo briefly before jumping right into the races. In part one of this race recap we talk about the 5K, 10K and Half Marathon as well as the meetup.
In today’s episode, Heather and Jen air their grievances about being an athlete, being a coach, and all the little (and sometimes big) annoyances that come with being a runner. We just had to get this off our chest. Our question is, what bugs you about being a runner? For all of you who participated in the Go Give Your Awesome charity challenge, thank you. This was a wonderful way to give back to the community through your running.
