Unleash your power within Part 2: Running with fulfillment
Part 2 of this series focuses on fulfillment. Make the decision to live a beautiful life, not just one of achievement. We runners are tough on ourselves. We work hard to achieve our running goals, striving and grinding a long the way, but the celebration is fleeting. Instead, we need to love the process and embrace every struggle along the way because 'Success without fulfillment is failure'.

I’m a casual runner and hopefully will be a lifelong runner. Your podcast keeps me motivated and your advice makes me a better smarter runner!
Great Evidence-Based Pod for Runners
When Covid-19 took away my main source of exercise, my bike commute, I turned to running. I fell for the sport, but one of the early amazements was the frequency of runners getting injured, which unfortunately included me as well. Brodie is a great teacher, effortlessly blending the science surrounding injury prevention and recovery with a clear and enthusiastic delivery. I have learned so much from listening to this podcast. I feel in charge of my recovery because I now know what usually causes running injuries (overload) and what will help me recover. Just as important, I have greater knowledge on preventing or mitigating the next flare up and have a much more pro-active outlook should it occur.
Brodie brings on great guests and he’s a really good interviewer. He harps a bit to listeners about listening to the first 10 episodes, but if you’re reluctant to go back, I’d encourage to give a listen. They do provide a solid foundation.
Really good advice for overcoming injuries
Brodie's podcast is a great listen for the many runners who deal with nagging injuries, or even better, want to learn how to prevent injuries altogether! I wholeheartedly agree that running smarter is the best way to improve your running!
