How to Run Trails
Running trails is more demanding than road running, but it's also more satisfying in many ways, not the least of which is that it improves road running performance.
Running trails requires strong feet and ankles, and it demands a whole different technique.
It's more different from road running than most people expect.
Six Reason Every Runner Should Run Off Road
Every runner will find tremendous satisfaction, benefit, and fulfillment from running off road, preferably, on wooded trails with varied surfaces and a bit of undulation.
The benefits are many and varied. Improve your 'on road' running, build endurance, and reduce injuries.
Learn to run trails, and those will likely be your favorite, most treasured miles from now on.
How to Make Your Easy Runs Work for You
Your running training will be most effective when you correctly apply the hard easy principle, but too many runners don't fully understand how to apply it, and as a result, they run their easy runs too fast, preventing recovery, and thereby, preventing the adaptation needed for improvement.
MFR 144: Running During a Pandemic
Wow! I would never have guessed I’d be doing a podcast on this topic, but here I am. This is not normal, nowhere near normal, not by ay stretch of the imagination. We are all living through this, one day at a time, finding our way, figuring out how to cope. We have no other choice; however, fortunately, ‘we’ have running to ease our trip through this difficult time.
Every single runner of every level is struggling right now, stressed, some more than others, but living during t
MFR 143: Sensible Running Resolutions for 2020
It’s that time again, time to carefully consider what we should do in 2020 to take our running and our lives to the next level. Since the options for running resolutions are almost infinite, I thought I’d provide some insight into the advantages of some types of resolutions and the pitfalls of others.
In this episode of the Mojo for Running Podcast, I discuss goal of more miles than you’ve done before, the goal of a longer distance than you’ve ever run before, the goal o
MFR 142: The Challenge of the Holidays and a Challenge for the Holidays
No time of the year challenges your commitment to running more than the holidays, the weeks between Thanksgiving and the new year. For that reason, I thought I’d share some my perspective in the hope that it will motivate you to stay the course. You, of course, may not run ‘all the miles,’ and I sure get that, as I explain, but you don’t want to let go of too many of your planned miles.
Let’s talk about that.

Wonderful podcast for runners
I just discovered this podcast and it is great. Lots of good topics and I like her easy, but informative way of talking to us.
And like all great coaches, she is always encouraging us to improve the way we run and enjoy every moment out there on the road/trail.
Content good enough to convert a former anti-podcast person
Every topic so far has been super insightful and also very relatable for me, personally, and I imagine for most runners. Looking forward to continuing to learn more through these. As someone who has never had a coach, the content is especially helpful, especially after running without much guidance for 14 years.
I love Deb
Thanks for humility and your inclusion for every type of runner.
