Wellness Resource Wednesday #6


Or, in less confusing terms, happy Day before Christmas Eve!

Christmas GIF | 2 Generations RunningI’m so looking forward to spending the holiday with my family and Brady and Keeper (my favorite reindeer.)

Since it is also Wednesday, I figured I would jump back into regularly scheduled programming, and share a couple of podcasts I think you guys might enjoy!

Wellness Resource Wednesday | 2 Generations RunningBoth of these podcasts are great for runners, and contain tons of valuable information. I only recently started listening to both of these, but I can already tell they are going to be favorites of mine.

  1. No Meat Athlete – Matt Frazier. This podcast comes from Matt Frazier, the creator of the very popular blog, No Meat Athlete. I actually heard Matt speak at a seminar during the Runners World Heartbreak Hill Half and Festival, and I really respect his advice. He’s extremely honest about his path towards qualifying for Boston (it took him quite a few tries, but he ended up qualifying and taking about 100 minutes off his first marathon time). Considering I’ve finally admitted this is one of my major running goals, I’ve been finding it really interesting learning more about his techniques and strategy. No Meat Athlete podcasts usually feature different guests as well, and they cover a variety of running/health-related topics.
  2. Running on Om – Julia Hanlon. A member of my running club recommended this podcast to me, and I’m so glad she did. While I would say Julia Hanlon is primarily a yoga teacher, she is also an avid runner, and she hosts a number of famous runners on her podcast, including Andrew Wheating (he ran in both the 2008 and 2012 summer Olympics). Her topics tend to try to provide a holistic approach to running and health in general, which makes for some very informative podcasts. She also has that typical soothing “yoga teacher voice”, so I really enjoy listening to her podcasts while I go to sleep. 🙂

So there you go! If you want a little something to listen to while you’re running during the holidays, I would definitely give these podcasts a try.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the holiday break!
