Lift Heavy Run Long is a podcast where we look into the lives of runners, weightlifters, and hybrid athletes, so we can get a better understanding of what makes them successful. Our mission is to find inspiring guests and arm ourselves with the tools for happiness. Each episode will be centered around finding positive energy and seeking fulfillment. We want to learn how to maximize the benefits of fitness, as it pertains to our lives outside of the gym. The objective is to be informativel, yet lighthearted and fun.
We want you to be a part of the LHRL community! www.liftheavyrunlong.com
Lift Heavy Run Long® #190 in full force. He we go:
Von says do ditch social media altogether.
Amanda has no use for it.
Thirsty doesn't even has Facebook on his phone.
Wilson still enjoys it...kinda.
Garmin has been hit with ransomware and most of us think that Swanson is responsible. We discuss how we THINK it works and how it should be handled. We also talk about why things like Garmin and posting on social media is important.
As usual, we don't follow any real path but the conversation is always entertaining, light-hearted.
LHRL® #189 with Nugget Johnson
On the Lift Heavy Run Long® Podcast #189 we had our old friend Nugget Johnson. Nugget is back in the United States after spending some time as a radio DJ in Dubai. We wanted to sit down with Nugget and talk about....nothing in particular. That is why we like him so much. He is an interesting, funny, and engaging guy who makes us all laugh.
My favorite thing about the LHRL podcast is its lack of direction. I enjoy getting with friends to talk about whatever it is that we feel like discussing. I doubt that you will find this podcast any more or any less educational than the others but we hope that you find some enjoyment in it, nonetheless.
We are back in the saddle with Lift Heavy Run Long® #188. Here is a rundown of how this shook out:
Amanda is back regular at Olive Branch CrossFit and pretty she will not survive after tonight's workout.
Von constructs his COVID-free trust circle of friends and we all want to be on the list.
Thirsty covers himself in poison oak after doing yardwork against Katie's better advice.
Wilson had a sore throat...which he decided was COVID...then had a leaking CPAP drying out his eyes...which he googled to be pink-eye...then WebMD said that 1% of COVID patients have pink-eye, so he will likely die soon.
As usual, we derail on an unrelated topic. This week was COVID as if you don't already hear enough about that. However, if you listen to us regularly, you go into it knowing that we are probably going to waste your time and you will be no better because of it.
On this episode of the Lift Heavy Run Long® Podcast, we went deeper than usual. Here is how it went down:
Daniela Krauss clarified that "double pepperoni" is more than "extra pepperoni", so remember that.
Katie Maxwell was rightfully offended that Beefcake was bold enough to refer to microwave bologna as fried bologna when clearly that was in error.
Big Thirsty wants to know exactly how much of a tip is required to actually get the pizza people to double the amount of pepperoni's added.
Jacked and Tan feels sympathy for Beefcake because they did not teach him to use chopsticks in public. Her theory is that he never learned to tie his shoes and that is why he wears Crocs.
The Reverend is on a "Looks and Fashion" trajectory that should have him working as a fashion model by 2021. Von also verbally and visually describes what a perfect weiner looks like.
On Lift Heavy Run Long® #186 we had our friend Dr. Brad Cole of Cole Pain Therapy Group. Dr. Cole is well known in the community for his treatment of pain on all kinds but more specifically he is well-known in the running and Crossfit community as a doctor who encourages movement and will do whatever he can to get you back to the hobbies that you enjoy with minimal downtime.
Dr. Cole is a fun guy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. It is always nice to have professionals on the show who are both knowledgeable and fun. I think you will find him to be very "real" and would advise you to look to him if you have physical ailments that need to be addressed.
You can find out all about Dr. Cole and his practice here:
This week on the Lift Heavy Run Long® Podcast we had the privilege of sitting down with Tony Hendrix and Melissa Wagner to discuss their plans to document (and participate in) a 333-mile unsupported road race called The Last Annual Halfway to Hell race which is the brainchild of everyone's favorite masochist, Lazarus Lakes. The documentary is named Finding Hope and Tony and Melissa are on a mission to capture the wins, losses, and ranges of emotions that both athletes and everyday people share when participating in endurance races.
Tony has an extensive background in film and video and will produce and amazing documentary if he is able to get all of the right people in all of the right places. We look forward to seeing the results of their efforts. Below is some information about the race and what you can do to support it.
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.
