“My main goal in everything that I do, as a coach to athletes, as the writer of the morning shakeout newsletter, as the host of this podcast, I want to show people what’s possible for themselves through the lens of running. So if you listen to a conversation that I have for the podcast with someone that you’ve never heard of, I hope that on some level they help you see what’s possible through the lens of running—through their own experience that may or may not apply to your life, or may help you connect the dots in some way…and it’s not going to click the same way for everyone, obviously—but more often than not they’re going to take something away from that episode that shows them what’s possible, whether in their own life, maybe for one of their loved ones, for their children, for athletes that they coach, and that’s what it’s all about at the end of the day.”

This week I sit down with Chris Douglas, my right-hand man and sponsorship director for the morning shakeout, and he interviews me for the 200th episode of the podcast. In this conversation we take a trip down memory lane and discuss some notable episodes, we talk about how the show has evolved and grown over the past 4+ years, I explain how the pandemic has affected the past 100 episodes for better and for worse, and a lot more.
