Okay, we know. Technically, the decade ends at the end of 2020, but we are doing this anyway. In this week’s episode, Jen and I take a long look back and about the journey we’ve taken and what we’ve accomplished in the last ten years — spoiler alert — It’s a lot! Happy New Year RunJunkies!
As many of us gear up for the runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, we spend some time talking about taper. We discuss what taper is and why it is important. We also share some tips and tricks based on our own experiences to survive “the taper crazies.” While we do refer to Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend a bit, this podcast is relevant whenever you need to taper before a race.
Join us as we dive deep into the upcoming runDisney 2020 Marathon Weekend event. Between Heather and Jen, we’ve experienced a number of runDisney races and Marathon Weekends.

We hope you join us at the meetup on Friday, January 10th at 3 pm on the Boardwalk near the ESPN Club and Ample Hills Creamery.
In today’s podcast, Heather and Jen embrace their loopiness and talk about setting goals for 2020. We answer some of the questions you asked in our Facebook group and we talk about our own goals, some of which we know already and a lot we’re still figuring out.

In today’s podcast, Heather and Jen rave about what they’re loving right now and would recommend for your “must-have” list. From apparel to inspirational motivation, we’re all about making sure you know what we’d purchase again so that you have the best holiday ever. Once we share our excitement, we talk about what’s on our list… or what would be on our list if money weren’t an obstacle.
Thanks for listening to the Go Find Your Awesome Podcast Episode 31: Runner Burnout!
In today’s podcast we dive into this strange phenomenon. It affects novice and veteran runners alike. Even those of us who love running with a passion will find ourselves “over it.” With many of us in the thick of WDW Marathon Weekend training, we may be questioning why we do this as it gets colder, darker and grayer out. How do you not just survive, but thrive and finish the race(s) strong? Or do you?
