    #240 - The Future of Strava and Boston Marathon Cancelled

    #240 - The Future of Strava and Boston Marathon Cancelled

    It’s with great excitement that I announce the newest podcast in the Rambling Runner Podcast Network - the Business & Sports Discourse podcast. This episode of the Rambling Runner Podcast features the first two episodes of the new show.

    The new show will be hosted by me, Matt Chittim, and my good friend Jason Macaluso. This short-form podcast will provide insight into the current events, topics, and announcements that are at the intersection of business and sports. We will be publishing new episodes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. Each show will about 20 minutes. Just long enough to dive into a specific topic but short enough for you to squeeze it into your daily routine.

    Part I - In the inaugural episode of the Business & Sports Discourse, we discuss the recent changes at Strava. Strava is extremely familiar to almost all runners, cyclists, and endurance athletes. They have been a mainstay in the endurance community for years and are at the forefront of fitness apps and GPS tracking. While they've had a dedicated following, they have struggled with brand identity and mission over the past several years. Last week they announced a new set of premium options as well as a new pay structure. This announcement was met with plenty of reactions across the endurance landscape.

    Part II - Last week the iconic Boston Marathon was officially cancelled. While not a surprise to much of the running community, it was a huge symbolic blow to many. Boston is known as one of, if the not the most, iconic races in the United States. This cancellation has an enormous effect of dedicated amateurs, charities and charity runners, elites, corporate partners, running media, and the entire running community.

    #239 - Deirdre Fitzpatrick

    #239 - Deirdre Fitzpatrick

    What time do you get up? Who does your hair and makeup? And, how do you look that awake?

    Those are the three questions KCRA Morning News anchor/reporter Deirdre Fitzpatrick gets from her Sacramento viewers.

    “2:15am. I do it myself which explains a lot. And, coffee by the pot.”

    Deirdre is a four-time Emmy award winner in writing, anchoring and reporting and has a bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

    She's traveled the world as a member of the Hearst Television Olympic Team. She’s covered the last nine Olympics -- 2000 Sydney, 2002 Salt Lake City, 2004 Athens, 2006 Torino, 2008 Beijing, 2010 Vancouver, 2012 London, 2014 Sochi and 2016 Rio de Janeiro. 

    Deirdre, joined KCRA on New Year's Eve of 1997. She started as a weekend morning anchor and turned the weekday morning anchor job down three times as she couldn't imagine, "getting up that early five days a week vs. just two." Now, ironically, she can't imagine staying awake to read out loud at 11 p.m. after anchoring in the mornings since 2000!

    Deirdre is on the board for the Sacramento Running Association which organizes the California International Marathon, among other amazing races. She's an 18-time marathoner, ultra-runner and Ironman triathlete (2002 Ironman Wisconsin and 2013 Ironman Tahoe.)

    She's also a wife, mom of two sons and likes to point out that being a boymom is WAY more tiring than getting up at 2:15 a.m. or finishing Ironman.

    #238 - Ramblings on the Run with Ali & Matt ft. David Roche

    #238 - Ramblings on the Run with Ali & Matt ft. David Roche

    Welcome to the May edition of Ramblings on the Run with Ali & Matt. Every month, Ali Feller — host of the Ali on the Run Show — and I come together to talk about running industry news, our own running, and things we’re loving right now. This time around we were joined by special guest David Roche. David is an elite trail runner and the co-founder of the coaching service Some Work All Play. He and his wife, Dr. Megan Roche, work with runners of all abilities including some of the best trail and ultra runners in the world. More importantly for this episode, he is hysterical!

    The three of us tried something new in this episode. Inspired by the creative sporting events happening on TV and social media, we decided to create our own. We founded the inaugural Ramblings on the Run Relay. This fictional events is simple: we each drafted a male and female from a certain walk of life for four specific races. Those combinations are as follows:

    Mile - Pro Athlete

    5k - Musician

    13.1 - Fictional Character

    26.2 - Actor/Actress

    This was one of the most fun podcasts I've every recorded. hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it!

    #237 - Matt Fitzgerald: Running the Dream

    #237 - Matt Fitzgerald: Running the Dream

    Matt Fitzgerald has been running (and writing about running) for most of his adult life. Like many passionate amateur runners, he never felt he  quite fulfilled his potential. In his mid-forties, Matt convinced Ben Rosario, head coach of Northern Arizona Elite, to let him train with a roster of national champions and Olympic hopefuls in the running mecca of Flagstaff, Arizona. These runners included Scott Fauble, Kellyn Taylor, Stephanie and Ben Bruce, Matt Llano, Tim Ritchie, and several others. Matt's mission: Run the race of his life at the Chicago Marathon by preparing exactly like a professional runner. 

    Matt’s gripping account of his “fake pro runner” experience allows us to partake in his dream of fulfilling his potential. Matt also details this process through the eyes of the pro's who live that life year round, year after year. Running the Dream pulls us into the rarefied world of professional running in a way we can all relate to, regardless of speed, and to take away pieces of one man’s amazing journey to try to achieve our own potential.

    #236 - Jen Labesky

    #236 - Jen Labesky

    Like many women, Jen Labesky spent most of her life allowing everyone else's opinions of what she "should" be doing, pursuing, or thinking, to chart her course. The result? She ended up feeling completely lost and empty inside. Jen knew she was capable of so much more, but was so caught up trying to be everything to everyone that she didn't have the time to devote, or even the slightest clue how to figure out what she wanted for herself.

    In the last few years, life has thrown challenges at Jen one after another and her heart has been broken to pieces. In the past, she would have sat paralyzed with pain. This time around she saw the glimmer of something beautiful in the pain. Something life-changing and crystal clear. Something that made her stand up and say no more 'should's.'"

    By stripping away the BS and focusing on what matters to her, she has more energy and power to move fearlessly toward her dreams. Living from a BS-free place of love has given Jen purpose and a simple barometer for every decision she's made since. This includes her passion to pursue running with heart and dedicatin.

    Jen is also the co-founder of the GritChicks retreats. These are small group running and outdoor adventure-based getaways for women of all levels of running experience. They have designed these retreats to be a relaxed, fun place for women to come together and share their passion for running, adventure and self-discovery in a space that is separate from our everyday lives and responsibilities. GritChicks retreats are a chance for women to step a little outside of their comfort zones and try new things, while also taking time to clear their minds, dream, set goals and explore the endless possibilities for our lives. It is a time for finding strength and creating memories with friends, old and new!

    You can learn more about Jen, GritChicks, and read her blog at www.jenlabesky.com.

    #235 - Dr. Tommy Martin

    Dr. Tommy Martin is one heck of an athlete. He is a 3:00 hour marathoner, sub-13:00:00 IRONMAN triathlete, owns the body of a body builder, and is a former college football player. He has achieved that level of success while going through the steps to become a doctor with a focus in pediatrics. In this episode Tommy talks about his humble roots, his eternal optimism, his faith, the steps he took to go from football to endurance sports, and the motivation that propelled him along that path.
