    Jay Dicharry: Small Workouts, Big Changes -R4R 170

    Jay Dicharry is one of America's leading physical therapists, and for years, he has been the one to watch. He is the one who is helping us to get stronger, faster, and better with our running form. He is by far the most knowledgeable person on this topic I have ever spoken to, and he is here to tell us to stop neglecting our feet. We are going to find out just how much of a difference it can make to our running, and why it's not just a case of finding a shoe that fits well.

    Molly Huddle: Olympic Trials, The State of Running, Shoes, and Her New Podcast -R4R 169

    Molly Huddle: Olympic Trials, The State of Running, Shoes, and Her New Podcast -R4R 169

    Molly Huddle is known for her serious speed as the former American Record Holder in the 10K (and formerly 5K), and with a PR of 2:26 in the marathon, and a contender for the Olympic Team in the marathon in 2020. In this chat though, we go so much further than results. We talk about why Molly is speaking out about issues, letting go of mistakes, even if they cause you an injury that could have serious long term implications. With just over a month to go until the Olympic Trials, this is well worth a listen.

    Michael Gervais: There Are No Shortcuts To Living An Insightful, High Performing Life -R4R 168

    Michael Gervais: There Are No Shortcuts To Living An Insightful, High Performing Life -R4R 168

    My favorite psychologist is on the show today, one of the greatest performance psychologists of our time and someone you will absolutely want to learn from, if you do not already. Dr. Michael Gervais is on the show today, and discussed vulnerability, courage, living up to expectations, whether it is possible to balance it all, goals, and so much more. This was one of my most enjoyable podcast I have ever recorded! I can't wait to hear what you think about Michael who has worked with athletes from all over.

    Michael Capiraso: NYRR President and CEO -R4R 167

    The President and CEO of New York Road Runners, Michael Capiraso is joining us today. I have been talking about how special the culture and community at NYRR is, but I thought it was time we found out more. Seeing him standing at the finish line of a race, high fiving hundreds, if not thousands of runners, celebrating their victories. Not many CEO's do that, as well as creating a giving, loving, genuine organization like Michael has. NYRR is making our world a much better place you will want to hear more.

    Kara Goucher: Performance Comes From Your Training, Not Your Weight -R4R 166

    Kara Goucher: Performance Comes From Your Training, Not Your Weight -R4R 166

    Now I know there are many brave people out there who have stood up for what they believe in but this persona had a special place in that area. Kara Goucher, a wonderful person who stood up to a big corporation because of her belief, that body shaming is NEVER ok. Although, standing up for what you believe in can never be easy even if you are in Kara's situation of being an elite runner. The lesson that I have learned from this episode is to show that I am brave enough to stand up for change.

    LIVE at CIM: Max King and James McKirdy -R4R 165

    Max King and James McKirdy have both accomplished a lot in their careers, but this conversation is not your typical live show. We talked about all the running for real things usually saved for the end of the conversations. We talked about the rumor of Max pinning a bib to his bare chest, and we all learned a lot on how can find balance within our worlds to love what we do, but still go hard for the things you want.

Love this Podcast!

Listening to Tina has helped me to go through the last months that I had to give up running to recover from HA. Not recovered yet but she gives me hope every week and I am forever grateful for that.

Exactly what I needed

Love listening to Tina. She looks at subjects that a lot of people don’t talk about. Really appreciated her episode today.
