    Back with a solo episode this week, Kelly talks about her experience at the Endeavorun Retreat this past weekend in Boulder, CO. This episode gets surprisingly vulnerable as Kelly talks about her mindset going into the retreat, what she wanted to get out of it, what she struggled with, and what happened after a pivotal moment in the weekend.

    31. Approaching Life with Kindness & Curiosity with Elizabeth Knight

    31. Approaching Life with Kindness & Curiosity with Elizabeth Knight

    In this amazing conversation with nurse practitioner and health coach Elizabeth Knight, we talk all about health coaching: what it is, how it differs from the healthcare system, and how runners can benefit from it.

    We also talk about how Elizabeth got into running (and ultrarunning!), the pros every runner needs in their corner, the 7 core areas of athletic health, inclusivity in healthcare, and so much more.

    If you enjoy this episode, please consider leaving a review and rating wherever you listen to podcasts. I appreciate you!

    30. Embracing your Inner Ninja with Megan Roche

    This week, I had the pleasure of talking to one of my favorite running coaches who I’ve looked up to for years, Megan Roche.

    You may know her from SWAP running or the SWAP podcast that she hosts with her husband, David Roche. Or maybe you know her from their book, The Happy Runner. And if you don’t know Megan, she is also an amazing runner herself, coach, MD, PHD candidate in epidemiology and one of the most positive, supportive people I’ve ever met.

    Here are some of the topics you can expect in this episode:

    Embracing your inner ninja
    Injecting fun and play into your running
    Building the aerobic base alongside reinforcing speed
    Data free days
    Learning to run by feel
    Training for the long term & dreaming big
    The importance of having a why
    Balancing scientific studies and anecdotes
    Open-mindedness and flexibility in coaching
    Coach-athlete relationships & being fully yourself
    Dealing with negativity
    Coaching a diverse range of athletes
    Her pregnancy journey

    This conversation was the highlight of my week, and I hope y'all enjoy this as much as we did.

    This week, I had the pleasure of talking to one of my favorite Tiktokers, Mak Smith. Mak is an elite athlete, engineer, podcaster, Tiktok star, life coach and absolute joy of a human. In this mega episode, we covered so many topics, including her decision to leave corporate America (and how she prepared for that), money mindset, feeling safe while being alone on the road & trail, being a woman in STEM, how she deals with negativity, her upcoming adventures, and so much more. This conversation was SO MUCH FUN and includes lots of laughing and life lessons. I hope y'all enjoy this as much as we did.

Super informative and realistic!

I love this podcast - it provides great information in an easy to understand way. I super appreciate the realistic approach, it makes me feel like everything is doable and able to balance running with other activities. I listen to the “perfectionism” episode every few months as a good reminder. Thank you!!!

Fun, Factual & Friggin’ Fantastic

Kelly’s podcast is an amazing resource for both newbie and veteran athletes alike! Her episodes bring together personal experience and science-backed training principles, and each one is delivered with research, enthusiasm, and positivity. I’m so grateful to have found Kelly and her podcast, and for the immeasurable impact she’s had on my own running journey!
