    Episode 58: Run for Your Life: A Conversation with Dr. Mark Cucuzzella

    We first met Dr. Cucuzzella eight years ago at the University of Virginia Running in Medicine Conference, where he shared his tips for injury free running. Since then, we’ve shared his drills and tips with hundreds of runners. In addition to discussing training tips and philosophies for injury-free running —Dr. Mark is a 29-time sub 3:00 marathoner—Dr. Mark shares his nutrition and fueling philosophies, which will be surprising to many listeners. In addition to his high-level training and practicing medicine, Dr. Mark owns a minimalist shoe running store, Two Rivers Treads, coaches youth XC camps, and is the race director for the Freedoms Run Marathon and Half in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

    Goals Are Not Canceled: Olympic Trials Qualifier, Kerry Allen, Shares Her Five-Year OTQ Journey.

    Goals Are Not Canceled: Olympic Trials Qualifier, Kerry Allen, Shares Her Five-Year OTQ Journey.

    DC area runner, Kerry Allen, shares her incredible journey from casual runner to “get in shape,” to Olympic Trials Qualifier. A former high school all-state runner, Kerry stopped running freshman year at Duke and nearly gave up the sport altogether. A few years later, a roommate convinced her to train for a marathon, and eventually, she was hooked. In 2013, Kerry decided to train to qualify for the Olympic Trials. She spent five years chasing that dream with many setbacks along the way. Kerry shared the obstacles she had to overcome, including injuries and DNFs, and how (and why) she did not give up. Kerry’s story will resonate with any runner who has (or has not) achieved a big auspicious goal. Kerry, who runs for Georgetown Running Club, can be found on Instagram at @KLA2222, or run commuting to her office on Capitol Hill. Thank you RnJ Sports for sponsoring our podcast.

JB the amazing person 🤗😀 ,

Excellent podcast with so many great guests

Julie and Lisa are experienced runners and coaches, but I also love that they are busy working moms who understand the challenges of balancing marathon training with work and family.
I originally started listening because of the great training tips and advice leading up to Boston, but I’m enjoying all of the additional episodes and the fantastic guests they’ve had. I look forward to each episode and feel like I’m talking with old friends :-) Keep up the great work!

Smart and engaging

I am very impressed with this podcast. The hosts are very informed runners and coaches, and they bring a variety of interesting guests to the show. They ask the questions I would want to ask, and they provide a lot of useful information to runners of all abilities. I always look forward to a new episode!

Infectious and forgiving

I love the hosts acceptance of adversity. We’re serious runners, but we’re not pros. Take a day off, acknowledge it might be too hot or hilly. We got off the couch, and that is an accomplishment. I love their advice but I like their mindset more.
