When I found out I was moving just outside the Mojave desert, I naturally looked at the weather. With the exception of Del Rio, Tx, I really hadn’t spent much time in the desert in the summer. It was one of the few climates I knew nothing about other than “it’s hot.”
One of the most common questions I get is: What running podcasts do you listen to?
Over 3 years ago, I blogged about running podcasts. Since then, some have come and gone. The podcast world has only gotten bigger since early 2016 or even 2018. Is podcasting the new blogging? Are newsletters the new podcasts?
There are a lot of benefits of walking for runners. Time and time again, I’ve heard runners say: “if you walk, you aren’t really running,” but that is far from the truth. Did you know some professional ultra-marathoners walk? Or during many of my trail runs, it’s actually faster and better to walk? Yes, there are benefits of walking for runners.
Let’s talk about the B-word. No…not that one. Running Burnout.
Burnout. We all go through burnout, whether it’s a running burnout, life, or something else. For instance, towards the end of living in New Jersey, I was feeling stale. Doing the same things every day. I didn’t realize it, but I was probably burned out with running too.
Then I got injured with running. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. Then I moved across the country. Needless to say, 2021 is not really where I thought I would be.
