    The Rise of the Plant-Based Athletes: Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke

    The Rise of the Plant-Based Athletes: Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke

    Matt Frazier is a vegan ultramarathoner, author, and entrepreneur, best known as the founder of the No Meat Athlete movement and host of the No Meat Athlete Radio podcast. Matt found he could run longer and faster with the help of a plant-based diet, and shortly after adopting a plant-based diet, Matt qualified for the Boston Marathon after taking over 100 minutes off his first marathon time. He has run several 50-milers and a 100-mile ultramarathon on a vegan diet.
    Matt's books have sold over 125,000 copies in five languages, and his work have been featured in books including Rich Roll’s Finding Ultra, Brendan Brazier’s Thrive Foods, and Seth Godin’s What to Do When It’s Your Turn. Matt was named by Greatist as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness, and Sports Illustrated has called The No Meat Athlete Cookbook one of the best Health & Wellness books.
    Matt has a brand new book out called the Plant Based Athlete and I couldn’t leave out his equally amazing co-author Robert Cheeke.
    Robert began a vegan lifestyle for ethical reasons at age 15, weighing just 120 pounds. Today he is the author of the best-selling books, Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, Shred It!, Plant-Based Muscle. He is often referred to as the “Godfather of Vegan Bodybuilding,” growing the industry from infancy in 2002, to where it is today.
     As a two-time natural bodybuilding champion, Robert is considered one of VegNews magazine's Most Influential Vegan Athletes. He tours around the world sharing his story of transformation from a skinny farm kid to champion vegan bodybuilder. Robert is the founder and president of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness and maintains the popular website, VeganBodybuilding.com. He is a regular contributor to No Meat Athlete, Forks Over Knives, and Vegan Strong.
    In my conversation with Robert and Matt, we talk about common nutrition myths about plant-based and vegan diets (here’s a hint--they are not always the same) and how more and more top athletes around the world are discovering that plant-based nutrition is not simply some fad diet, but a powerful performance and recovery enhancer.
    We talk about protein, calories, macros, and whether or not you need to be all in to reap the benefits of plants.
    As you can probably guess, this was a delightful conversation for me because not only did I get a chance to interact with two people whose work I think so highly of, but I also get to talk about my two most favorite subjects:  running and food.

    How A Low-Tech Device Improves Performance and Recovery: Dr Dena Garner

    How A Low-Tech Device Improves Performance and Recovery: Dr Dena Garner

    What if I told you that there was a simple way to improve your muscular endurance, reduce your respiratory rate when running, reduce the production of lactic acid, slash your cortisol build up in half, allowing for faster recovery times after every run?  I bet you’d be all over it, right?  And then you might be asking, what’s the catch?
    My guest today is Dr Dena Garner and she’s spent the last 17 years of her career researching and developing a very simple product that promises to do just that.
    Dr Garner is a professor at The Citadel, one of six senior military colleges in the United States.  She has degrees in exercise science and muscle physiology as well as a postdoctoral fellowship in neurology.  
    At The Citadel, her research has concentrated on the effects of a mouthpiece inserted over the lower teeth during exercise. She measures physiological parameters of her subjects while using the mouthpiece, including levels of lactate and cortisol, as well as respiratory rate and has found some pretty incredible results.
    Her research has shown that the specific way you place your jaw and tongue, aided by a mouthpiece, results in a physiological change in the airway, which improves performance outcomes.  In addition to opening your airway, when you bite or clench down on the mouthpiece during exercise, research cites an increase in cerebral blood flow, which may be the link to the improvements in cortisol and lactate.
    Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking.  This is pretty weird, right?  And I’m not afraid to say that to Dr Garner in our conversation.  
    But, if you think about it, it could make sense.   Think about when you are concentrating hard on something.  Many people instinctively clench their teeth or chew on a pencil or their lip or a necklace or bite their nails. Why do we do that?  What if it’s not just a habit your mom tries to get you to stop doing?  What if it’s a stress-relieving mechanism that’s evolved over time that actually does help us?
    I don’t know about all that, but what I do know is that this research is absolutely fascinating to me and potentially could be a gamechanger in performance and recovery.  Let’s find out.

    How to Fuel For the Marathon

    How to Fuel For the Marathon

    Having a solid fueling plan for the marathon can make the difference between a great race and a disaster.  But how do you know what to eat, how much to eat, and when?
    Coach Claire Bartholic explains exactly how much runners need to take in before and during the marathon.  She talks what you should be doing in the days before the race to top off your muscles' storage of glycogen, what you should eat race morning, and just how many carbs and calories you need to take in to avoid the bonk and cross the finish line your fastest!

    Fun is Abdi Abdirahman's Secret to Running Longevity

    Fun is Abdi Abdirahman's Secret to Running Longevity

    Are you ready to be inspired? And maybe have some fun while we are at it?  Then this is the episode for you.
    For most of us, qualifying for the Olympics is a completely unrelateable accomplishment, right?  Well how about qualifying for FIVE of them?
    Abdi Abdirahman is the only American distance runner to qualify for five Olympic Games. At age 44, Abdi is also the oldest American runner to qualify for the Olympics, the oldest male to podium at the New York City Marathon, and the USA Track & Field master’s record holder in the marathon.
    Born in Somalia, he came to Tucson, Arizona, at age 16 after his family escaped civil war. He became an American citizen in 2000 and has represented the United States as a 10,000m runner at the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympics, in the marathon in 2012, and has qualified for the 2020 Olympic marathon to be held in Japan this year. 
    Coach Claire Bartholic wanted to talk to “The Black Cactus” as Abdi is also known, not just about his amazing accomplishments, but about the things that are relatable and helpful to all runners--not just elites.
    Because the truth is that we are all runners and while Abdi just happens to be one of the fastest runners on the planet, we are all just putting one foot in front of the other.
    His new book is called, Abdi’s World: The Black Cactus on Life, Running, and Fun, and in it, Abdi not only tells his incredible life story, but he also talks about how he leads a fulfilling life that is not all about running.
    It’s like a guidebook that is part life lessons, part training tips, part autobiography, and all uniquely Abdi. 
    Claire talks with him about his 5 rules of running that might just help you have a better run today.  It’s kind of hard to believe that such a dedicated, durable and resilient runner like him sometimes has to convince himself to go for a run, but it’s true and she asks him all about it.
    This conversation is as much about living a passionate life as it is about running and it’s hard to find someone more passionate about both than Abdi.
