LHRL® #212- Derek Baker
Lift Heavy Run Long #212 got us back together and back on track after an extended break. We were fortunate enough to have our friend Derek Baker be willing to sit down and visit with us. Derek is a 20+ veteran of the Navy and spent a great deal of time in the bodybuilding/powerlifting space before a youtube video got him to thinking about what it would be like to run an ultra-marathon.
Derek committed himself to running an ultra-marathon before he had even complete his first mile. He, admittedly, did not have any idea what he was doing and just decided to hit the bricks and start running. Derek signed up for a 50K and in 5-weeks had dropped almost 35 pounds and was carrying significantly less weight than his previous 250lb frame was use to carrying. Ever since his first ultra, he has been on a tear.
Derek has finished 2- 100mile races (one of which was on a treadmill!). Just last week he completed the Barkley Fall Classic and has more races coming down the pipes. Often described as the humble and "PG" version of David Goggins, Derek's intensity, focus, kindness and humility are some of the things that make him such a jewel in the trail-running community.
I am sure that you will enjoy our time that we spent with Derek just as much as we did!!
Thanks for tuning it.

Lift Heavy Run Long® #209 had the whole group of us back together. I need to write a summary but honestly, all I can think about is this Mississippi State vs. Vanderbilt baseball game. So, I gotta run.I hope to come back to this but I will probably forget.
LHRL® #208- Becky Duncan & Caleb Sweavy
So, I really, really like Melisa Burgess.
Who doesn't? Everybody does.
She is a close friend of the LHRL® community.
When Melisa has a panic attack on the side of a cliff at this year's Sylamore 25k/50k, there were 2 complete strangers who stopped their race and literally talked Melisa down from the edge. They spoke to her, held her hand and walked her to safety.
I don't know if I am making a bigger deal out of it than necessary or maybe it is my selfish nature that makes it so hard for me to get a grasp on how any two stranger could be so altruistic.
Anyways, meet Becky Duncan and Caleb Sweazy. These are the two very fine people who were kind enough to stop and take care of our friend. We sat down and chatted with them and had the opportunity to learn more about them as people. They did not disappoint.
I have always loved getting to know new people on the podcast, Becky and Caleb are no exception. They give a whole new meaning to "Be good to others."
Any trail-runner worth their salt-stick knows that a trail race is about more than their finish time. Becky and Caleb proved this to be very, very true.
Best, "How-To Podcast", podcast in the biz!
Question: What more could a novice pocaster ask for?!
Answer: Quality people gathering on an arbitrarry schedule in a remote undisclosed location with limited HVAC comfort capabilities, that is coincidentally-countered with state-of-the-art reliable Apple podacsting equipment, which is managed by the resident IT expert, who rolls deep with Windows IT backup, of whom can be found under the aliases of Reverend and Big-Thirsty-Money-Bags, who are kept in-check by a lady appropriately named Dr. Jacked and Tan.
The LHRL Podcast spares no expense when it comes to quality over quantity, in terms of guests and material to cover. The listener is guaranteed to laugh until they cry...rally...then cry till they laugh all while soaking in, what has been dubbed as the most influential viewpoints on all things LIFE.
Y'all stay classy out there and don't forget to give your waintress the big tip!
Still loving it!
I will never get tired of Beefcake, Jacked & Tan, The Reverend, and Moneybags. Sorry If I got the last nickname wrong, I’m to tired to figure it out right now , but I’m sure if I had to listen to a few episodes over again to figure it out I’d really enjoy the reruns. ❤️
I just listened to your last podcast, I’m still here listening and enjoying each and every one.
