Breaking the Barrier is a motivational podcast following my journey to run a sub 2:40:00 marathon by 2020 (from running a 4:29:21 marathon in 2018). The aim with the podcast is to inspire people to go above and beyond what they ever thought possible. I am using my journey toward that 2:40 marathon as my personal outlet for self-discovery of my physical and mental limits and pushing past them... I share my journey with the community and translate what I am doing to how it can impact your lives and journeys as well, whether it be running, career, personal, or otherwise. I hope the podcast can be the inspiration for you to go above and beyond what you ever thought possible

    Ep. 66: Lucy Clark And Her New Zealand Run

    Ep. 66: Lucy Clark And Her New Zealand Run

    In this episode, I speak with Lucy Clark, who has recently completed a trek along the Te Araroa Trail.... This runs the length of New Zealand... an over 3,000km journey! Lucy and I talk a little bit about her training, nutrition, mental/physical feelings, and so much more.

    Lucy speaks about appreciating the journey, rather than focusing so much on pace which is a great lesson to learn. Granted, she was going for an FKT (fastest known time), but she did find time to enjoy the journey she was undertaking. Lucy averaged about a marathon every day with ONLY ONE DAY OFF.

    Takeaways:

    1. Planning is everything. You have to have a roadmap when you are planning something huge-- especially if you want to do well.

    2. The plan can go out the window. Even if it's something like nutrition. But you have to think on your feet and figure out how to modify.

    3. GET YOUR REST. Someone like Lucy who runs this much, you want to listen to her recovery tips.... Sleep is her biggest go to for recovery because that's how your body will recover.

    4. Sometimes, the thought of something is worse than the thing itself. Your mind will play up on you but don't let it win.

    5. Take the time to appreciate the things that truly matter... Even when you are in the thick of something incredibly challenging, you CAN take time to enjoy the important things in your life.

    6. If you have a dream, go for it. Set your mind to it and set up your plan. Commit to it and anything is possible.

    Ep. 64: Spartan And The Paranormal With Nick Groff

    Ep. 64: Spartan And The Paranormal With Nick Groff

    In this episode, I speak with Nick Groff of Ghost Adventures, #Paranormal Lockdown, Paranormal Lockdown UK, Ghosts Of Shepherdstown, and more. Nick is also a Spartan race enthusiast. Listen as we speak about how he got into paranormal #investigations, some of his experiences, as well as his #fitness journey and views on being the best version of himself.

    Some Takeaways:

    1. Always be open to learn more and push yourself further.
    2. What ripple effect will you cause? How will you affect this world in a positive way?
    3. Fitness can help you balance out the negativity and, sometimes, energy draining realities of daily life.
    4. It's you against you... What can you learn about your performance and use that to improve your personal race?
    5. You must start with your mindset and figure out what you want. Stick with what works for you and what motivates you. What gets you excited?
    6. Set constant goals for yourself and don't be complacent.
