A podcast with an honest and open look at running, fitness and all things health-related with a bit of humor thrown in.


An Unpopular Opinion, Maybe Two

#115 - Being an independent thinker means not sharing the same opinions as the crowd. In this week's episode, I share a couple adverse opinions I have as they relate to running. The first has to do with influencers. When did this group of not important people suddenly become important to runners? The second is the adoration of a handful of ultrarunners at the expense of others. I have a few more thoughts as well. I know that you, as MRTW listeners and being independent thinkers yourselves will appreciate where I go this week. Take a listen!
