    Y'all wanna talk about it?



    Let's talk about it.



    Here is what we talked about it.....



    Wilson got glasses and stopped wearing them cause he cant see(?).

    Two-below, all-time-quarterback and ghost runners. Did you play that?

    Mind of a serial killer.

    Amanda got to see her hero, Amy Grant.

    Von was the guy who could play Stairway to Heaven in 8th grade. (I'm soooooo jeolous!!)

    Village Creek

    Wilson injured himself while getting up to take a pee in the middle of the night....athletically.

    Lift Heavy Run Long® #175. Are you ready? Here we go:



    * Week 7 of NordicTrack being  piss-poor company with horrible customer service. If for whatever reason, you are buying a treadmill...do not buy NordicTrack.

    * The great peanut butter argument. Everyone knows that peanut butter is to be eaten with a spoon and the double dip rule does not apply.

    * Blood pressure medication and just a solid breaking of HIPPA rules all the way around.

    * Upcoming races.

    * Christmas in January

    * Back in the CF gym.

    * Amanda is back on track and killing it.

    * We are out of 5-star reviews so please go leave one. Leave Review Here.Have a great week everyone!

    This week on the Lift Heavy Run Long® Podcast we are back in full swing after an awesome holiday season. Everyone is so stoked about 2020 and the energy is good. On episode #174  we had our favorite guest, Gary Owens and we discuss the following:



    * NordicTrack continues to suck. 6 weeks into a service call/warranty issue and no one has addressed it. They actually fired the last service tech that was scheduled to repair.

    * Big Thirsty gets everyone's goals for the new year.

    * Gary Owens officially kinda announces his attempt to break the 100mile record at Tunnel Hill in 2020.

    * We read one review and save the other one...because having reviews is awesome.

    * Wilson got glasses but can't see out of them. Not sure it is supposed to work that way.

    * Are mexican cokes healthier than 'merican cokes?

    * We ramble on about some other fitness stuff but it's all pretty stupid, really....but you already knew that.

    2. Amanda delivers fantastic choir and handbell performance at church..

    3. Wilson nears stalking charges as he accidentally creeps ATC member.

    4. NordicTrack's customer service is awful.

    5. Runner who smacked reporter on the bottom is being charged with sexual battery.

    6. Von calls Wilson the Big Bird of fitness....and Swanson is Oscar the Grouch.

    7. Get your prostate checked.



    I hope you enjoy. Have a safe a happy holiday!

Always entertaining

It's funny how every time I watch all of you, I'm talking back like I'm in the room with you. There hasn't been an episode that didn't make me laugh out loud or shaking my head at various comments. What you're doing is fantastic! It's obvious you love doing it. Love you all, and always know I support you 110%!

Better late than never

I am glad I found you guys. I have been doing CrossFit for the past 9 years and coaching for about 6 then one day I decided to sign up for an Ultra Marathon. I have been listening to a number of pod casts on my runs rather than music and one day found you guys. I love the banter and it nice to hear about balancing the lifting and the running. My race is this weekend and I plan on listening to you guys for a few miles along the way. Keep up what you do and it is good to know there are other Crossfitters that run these crazy things.

F3 Memphis

I wish I had heard this podcast sooner. I have been a part of F3 Memphis for the past 6 months, and it has been an enormous contributing factor to my life changing for the better. Physically, mentally, and spiritually, F3 memphis has been so important. I think you should check back in with the group to see how it’s grown. They work with GoRuck now to set up F3 only events, we have a team preparing for the Memphis half Ironman, there are just so many legit athletes here now it’s incredible.
