111. When I drank, I worked out to stay fit. Now I run to stay healthy.

Jake is 27 years old and up until recently has battled with alcoholism fueled by anxiety that, according to him, was most likely related to his abusive childhood. From an early age on, he always enjoyed exercise as a way to get catch a break from the volatile home situation and cope with the stress that came with it. But it wasn’t until recently that he discovered the healing power of running - it surprised him. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message

Welcome to episode 1 of my new sub-series titled “MY RACE”. Starting today, August 3 and going forward, every first Monday of the month, we will feature a specific race and my guest’s experience at that race.

His first being the Comrades Marathon in South Africa (89k/55mi) in 2012 and his latest the 2018 Marathon Des Sables, a 250k, 6-day marathon through the Moroccan Sahara which he is telling us about in detail in this episode If you have any extraordinary race experiences you would like to share as a guest on this podcast, please email us at QuitxStartRunning@gmail.com or leave us a voice message with a brief introduction and an overview of your race story.

MY RACE Series - EP 1: My friend David recounts his 2018 Marathon des Sables

110. My Truth on "Movement is Medicine for the Mind"

You may have heard Tricia's name in my very first episode when she was given a shoutout about talking me through the last few miles of my first (and only) marathon in Big Sur over 8 years ago. We’ve been friends for almost half our lives and while most of our friendship has been long distance between the US and the UK, we have been pretty great about keeping in touch. While we will always cherish our mid 2000s glory days in New York City, we are now growing even closer over launching into entrepreneurship and, of course, our passion for running and inspiring others to get moving. I had an idea then that Tricia was pretty remarkable but her mission now to motivate people to get off the couch AND give to charity just solidifies this belief. Stay tuned on the development of her app and let's help build her community on Instagram and Facebook! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message

110. My Truth on "Movement is Medicine for the Mind"

109. Running Taught Me Resilience. And I'm only 19.

At 19, Tayler is my youngest to date and my first international interview, coming to you from Wales. For her young age, she has already been through more than many twice her age. In addition to spending almost all of her childhood in foster care and battling a eating disorder, she and her sister became victims of child abuse… by their own aunt. It took years but Tayler eventually turned to running to heal her emotional pain and now is running for Team NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty towards Children) and is training for the London Marathon. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message

108: I Ran to Be Skinny. Now, I Run to Be Healthy

Mackenzie is 26 years old and up until recently has battled with bulimia and, with that, an addiction to laxatives. While she ran on the Cross Country and Track teams in High School, Mackenzie’s relationship with running was certainly not a healthy one. Throughout her recovery, Mackenzie re-discovered running and has re-shaped her thinking around it. She was able to turn something that she used as a tool to enable her eating disorder into a passion that now helps her find mental peace, healing and relief. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message

107. What Running Taught Me about Self Worth

Suzanne was happily married with 2 beautiful daughters working as a nurse. She had what seemed like the perfect life. However, her inner demons had the upper hand until, one day, she said "no more". She lost the weight, she began her journey to sobriety and then trained for her first race. It was 18 miles and she never turned back. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message

106. Running For Positive Change

How can running be a positive driver for change? It starts with us, our individual mindset and mental disposition. If running can free us from feelings or stress, frustration, anger, fear and sadness, we can make space for feelings of joy, empathy and understanding. Maybe the willingness to understand others, being inquisitive rather than fearful and empathetic rather than defensive could solve some of the issues around ignorance, and insecurity that often can result in bullying and racism. Authors referenced in the podcast are Brene Brown (Daring Greatly) and Mitchell S. Jackson (Twelve Minutes and a Life) If you have had challenges or obstacles in your life, that you have conquered by getting into running, whether related to racism or other, we would love to hear your story.

104. I Quit Smoking and Ran in the Olympic Marathon Trials

“Just because I’ve been a smoker for over 10 years, doesn’t mean I cannot also become an athlete. Allow yourself to believe that that’s who you can be. You never know what you’re capable of doing until you try.” Paraphrased, not a direct quote from my conversation with Stephanie Andre, who ran in the Olympic Marathon Trials just this past February only 7 years after quitting smoking.

103. Running helped me heal from grief. Now, I run for others.

Jacob started running seriously after his good friend and boss passed away from cancer. He was a cyclist and triathlete for cancer research and his journey to help others inspired Jacob to start his own. He started running, initially, to process his own thoughts and feelings. Running helped him cast away self doubt, saying that “it wasn't do much that I couldn’t do it, I just didn’t do it." Today, Jacob, is stepping up his training, working with a coach to run faster. Not only for himself, but more importantly, always for others, whether it be as a tribute in training or fundraising for a cause in a race. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/qxsr/message
