Extremely proud of this one-star review.
I promise to continue to talk about the environment, diversity, politics, etc. I hope you’ll join at the For The Long Run Podcast.
I smiled a big ole smile when I saw this.
When I started For The Long Run in 2019, it was mostly just running talk. As time went on, I had more and more interesting conversations with high performers and my perspective changed. I realized that those who looked at running as a sandbox to experiment in, as a way to grow, learn, and become a better version of themselves, are the ones who felt the most successful (subjectively).
And go figure, they often achieved the most (objective) levels of success too. And all of this requires a focus on things outside of running. A sense of community, a sense of responsibility, and a desire to grow in methods that don’t include reps on the track or trails. And a heck of a lot of care for the people and things around them.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m really proud of this evolution, and for this comment. I’m proud to stand for something. To have finally learned that running is more than just about running.
And I hope you’ll check it out. We’re 244 episodes in and finally, feel like we’re hitting my stride.
