    Candace Broaddus

    Candace Broaddus

    This episode features Candace Broaddus, a member and coach in the Richmond Running Community.
    Candace walks us through her journey of her love for running and how that love, drive, and passion led her to begin to coach in this different way. We explore the Richmond running community and what sets it apart from others. We talk about how she went from participating in a Marathon training program to becoming one of the coaches who helps to support runners.
    For the Sportsbackers program, she coaches with, coaching is more than just getting folks through the miles before the starting line. Sportsbackers (organizers and directors of the Richmond Marathon, Half Marathon, 8k) have created a program that draws in hundreds of folks from the Greater Richmond Area. This program not only supports you up to the starting line, but to the finish line as well.
    Listen to how Candace has seen her role as coach unfold in this program and why it is amazing to help runners in the lead-up, and all the runners out on the course meet their goals (whatever they might be).

    Katie Wax-White

    Katie Wax-White

    In this episode, we welcome Katie Wax-White. Katie is a native of Hampton Roads, VA, but currently resides and runs in Atlanta (ATL). However, the journey to be where she is, running as an adult, was once considered impossible. An injury in her senior year of High School put her on the sidelines, almost permanently, and began a painful journey of just trying to be comfortable. For her, running today means so much more than time, it is a reflection of where she has come from. The joy she brings to the community and running is a reminder of the gratefulness we have in movement. 

    Check out this episode, hearing Katie’s story and what she is up to now.

Christian Chavez

Hi! Just listen to the Mike couch episode! I’m Christian! It was an awesome episode and hearing mikes thoughts on the race and his experience guiding me for those last 14 miles! Virginia Beach and it’s community are amazing! Best marathon trip I’ve been on! That race wasn’t a PR attempt but it was a race I needed for my 55 mile race in May! This race is a big part of that goal and everyone who helped me at Virginia Beach! Thank you again!
