Adam Laxalt: Biden Is Responsible for Deaths at the Border
"Take a lesson from the residents declare an emergency declare this activity to be illegal Marshall your assets and tell the folks I'm sorry you can't stay You have to come here legally I mean that's the model right We should all take a lesson from Martha's video There was a tweet that went out about this this morning I said I would ask you about it They really got the system down You know it's just astounding when these are the people that have been most active in this open border worldview And they think they're better people than the rest of us because they support open borders And the bottom line is this has serious consequences for real nevadans and real Americans all across this country You know I had this experience with the guy in rural Nevada and he and his three sons had just opened up a mechanic shop if their lifelong dream all three sons then were Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans and then he started crying One of his sons died of an opioid overdose a few months ago Imagine surviving a couple wars fighting for our country and then dying of an opioid overdose for a totally preventable thing if we just had a border his son would be alive today It is not a stretch to say that these are Biden's bodies He's responsible for these people that are bitter dying coming across the border and for the cartels pushing all of these extra drugs into our communities and to devastating especially rural communities the rust belt and so like I said I think he's going to be looking for a lifeline And I think we need to call these hypocrites out and say hey if you guys are open borders and you're a sanctuary city and you've got room for everyone at the end Okay you could take them all in But places like Texas and Arizona they can't handle them anymore
Adam Laxalt: Bring Back 'Remain in Mexico' Policy
"I mean this issue is so bad for Biden and you have 75% of that and think that the border policies are bad policy And so this is the type of issue where he wakes up He gets shellacked across the country It truly is the red referendum that I believe it's still going to be And he comes to his team as one in the world Can I do to get right in the world This should be number one I think he'll come to the table You know they're doing a lot of things sort of behind the scenes to try to go against their policies to try to help secure the border It's interesting because they don't really put it out in the media They're so holding to their open porters base They doesn't want to be seen as possibly trying to secure the border And so as we saw with Martha's Vineyard were these people absolutely freaked out over 50 illegal Flown to the most expensive island in America they had nationalized send a 150 national guards to deal with 50 illegal immigrants How about they say some of those national governments at the border and then maybe they wouldn't get illegal immigrants shipped to Martha's Vineyard So I think we need to when I was embedded with the border patrol union one of the biggest things there was to change is the remain in Mexico And that would even need a vote in Congress for Biden to wake up and say we have to put back in place remain in Mexico We could just get that win then it would reverse these numbers dramatically
Dinesh and Debbie Discuss Venezuelans in Martha's Vineyard
"The latest development with regard to Martha's Vineyard, let's remember the martyrs vineyard was the venue to which Ron DeSantis sent illegal migrants to. It's like, hey, you want them. You're a sanctuary city. Here, you have them. And it was just a small number. I think 50 or so apparently a bunch of those guys were from Venezuela, mostly Venezuelan. It says. And evidently, when I first read this, I sort of had to take a double take. It says that the Venezuelans who are undocumented immigrants in Martha's Vineyard are filing a lawsuit against Ron DeSantis and I'm like, wait a minute. I thought these were like, these are guys who are destitute, they're trying to survive. Well, it turns out they are being manipulated or organized by a Boston based group called the lawyers for civil rights. So the lawyers for civil rights get with these guys and say, hey, listen, we have a way to make some money for you. We'll pay all the costs. You don't have to pay anything. We're going to sue Ron DeSantis. They're asking for $75,000 for quote economic emotional and constitutional harm. This is right out of the playbook of the left. It's kind of an operation can we find a sympathetic judge, sympathetic jury, can we get a ruling in our favor? Can we politicize this in a way that's going to result in a win for us? That's why they're doing it. Look, I know these are my by Thanos, okay? These are from my home, my home country, but listen. They are, as you say, they're being manipulated, and they don't actually understand the political parties in America. They actually think that the Republicans are like the chavistas, and they think the Democrats are like the opposition in Venezuela, but in fact, it's the exact opposite. The Democrats are the socialists. They are the communists. They are the ones that will turn this country into Venezuela.
LULAC Decries Gov. Greg Abbott's 'Political Stunts'
"Back to lulac. So they are actually suing Abbott because they think that Abbott's tactic of sending the bus loads to D.C. and where else did he send him, not Martha's Vineyard. That was D.C. in New York. Do you see a New York? So he thought, oh, you are just dehumanizing these people. These Latinos, from Central and South America, they deserve human rights. They deserve to have rights. Well, you know, here's the thing. They are breaking the law, right? So really by that logic, that means that if somebody breaks into our House, what we have to feed them, we have to treat them with respect because they broke into our House. Hello? Well, the situation here though is complicated, I think, because even though you're right, that these are people who are not lawfully in the country, in a way they're not like people who broke into your house because you never collaborated with them to get in the house. Think about it. The Biden administration. Yes, but that would be like, say, our community, HOA, collaborating with them without our consent. Without August. Because that's what's happening. Is that the Biden administration is not asking the folks in the Rio Grande. If it's okay for these people to come over or anybody else. Not to mention the Texas as a state doesn't want them. And so governor Abbott in his sense of saying, listen, you guys claim to be sanctuary cities. Yes. You are pushing for. You know, and the brilliant thing about this is that nobody and I mean nobody is down there at the border, filming these people coming in. So what Abbott did, what desantis did is he's making it an issue. He wants the reporters to report about illegals because otherwise nobody else is reporting about a year. No one knows there's illegals in this country,
Axios: Search Interest in Abortion Falls as the Border Rises
"Mike Gallagher. I saw an article today about Internet searches, Google searches. They have a metric. They have metrics, you know, that determine what people in America are looking for online. According to axios, Google searches and story interactions about crime and immigration are eclipsing abortion rights and the Mar-a-Lago rate. This is according to the axios midterms dashboard powered by Google trends and news whip data. Actually, it says why it matters with the midterms 7 weeks away, topics that are more likely to favor Democrats have been losing ground to those that Republicans prefer. And searches related to the border, spiked after Florida governor Ron DeSantis flew a asylum seekers, AKA illegal immigrants to Martha's Vineyard. And search interest in inflation and the economy is rising again. What are the Democrats going to do in October? Because this was the October surprise. The illegals being sent to Martha's Vineyard was the Republican Party's October surprise, a little early. The Democrats aren't going to be done. They're going to look at what happened yesterday with this goofy lawsuit filed against the Trump organization. Oh, imagine that. Donald Trump bragged about the value of his apartment. Oh no. Lock him up.
Matt Rosendale: Biden Has Allowed More Illegals Than Size of Montana
"Love it. And I love the letter that you and your fellow senator because I'm going to basically call you senator that your fellow senator sent to President Biden about not sending illegal immigrants to Montana. I'm sure this is not lost on you that my goodness. We're talking about two and a half million this year, 5 million by the end of the first two years of President Biden, illegals. We don't know who they are. Some of them with very bad intentions, as you know, and 50 go to Martha's Vineyard and you might think the world just ended the other day. Congressman? Give what? You would. And I will tell you something. I have traveled to the southern border three times since being sworn into office January of 2021. I hadn't been for a year, Harry, and I just went about 30 days ago to get updated. And oh my gosh, it has devolved even worse. And so yeah, we did. Myself and senator Dane sent a letter to the president to make sure that we were very clear on the record that we did not want him to begin trying to transfer some of this problem if you will into Montana so that we would have to use the limited tax dollars. We only have 1 million people in the state. Think about that. Think about that. Actually, he has brought more illegal immigrants into the country. Two and a half times more illegal immigrants into the country over the last 18, 20 months than the entire population of the state of Montana. And we just want to make sure that he does not try to do anything to increase our population any further by dropping people that that would require all the services have arrived here illegally and we don't know who they are or what their intentions are.
Tucker Carlson: Javier Salazar Is Using Biden's Talking Points
"And his Tucker pointed pointed out, it's hard not to continue to be amazed by this story. Check out Tucker's monologue last night when he talked about bear county sheriff, Javier, Salazar. As we understand it, 48 migrants were lured, and I will use the word lured under false pretenses into staying at a hotel for a couple of days. They were taken by airplane at a certain point. They were shuttled to an airplane. Where they were flown to Florida, and then eventually flown to Martha's Vineyard. Again, under false pretenses, as the information that we have, that they were promised work, they were promised the solution to several other problems, we do have the names of some suspects involved that we believe our persons of interest in this case at this point, but I won't be parting with those names. I think to be fair, I think everybody on this call knows who those names are already, so I won't be naming any of them. That's appalling and shocking. For any law enforcement official, a guy who carries a gun and has a right to shoot you, to be parroting Biden administration political talking points in front of a camera. That man should be ashamed. That is completely over the top that he would say something like this. This is all crazy. We're being invaded and now they're talking about prosecuting Ron DeSantis because he sent 50 people to Martha's Vineyard to immediately deport us and they wouldn't get in the way of the food and wine festival. True craziness.
Polls Show Republicans Ahead of Democrats on Immigration
"Nationwide survey from NBC shows Republicans are holding a commanding advantage on the issues of border enforcement and immigration. And now a new poll brand new poll out, I think the Dallas morning news has Abbott up by 11 points over beto o'rourke and beto o'rourke and other Democrats are livid. Over this illegals being sent to Tony Martha's Vineyard or Rehoboth beach Delaware or Kamala Harris mansion, I'm telling you what, this is, this is absolute perfection. Absolute brilliance.
Illegals Sue Gov. Ron DeSantis Over Martha’s Vineyard Flights
"Well, here's a headline that ought to get your attention. Illegals are suing governor Ron DeSantis. That's right. People who break the law came across the border and wound up being flown to Martha's Vineyard, have filed a class action lawsuit. Against Florida governor Ron DeSantis. A nonprofit organization is representing the Venezuelan immigrants as the polite way of calling illegals illegal, they were exploited, you see, for the sole purpose of advancing their own personal financial and political interests, boy, that was quick. I thought lawsuits took a while. I thought it takes a while to meet with the attorneys. Spend consultations because they got to rack up those hourly fees. Let's see, when were they shipped to Martha's Vineyard? Last week? All of a sudden, now the lawsuit's been filed in court. There's a word for that. It's called chutzpah.
Gov. Ron DeSantis: Where's the Outrage Against Joe Biden?
"America's governor Ron DeSantis at a press conference today cut 7 go Biden is flying these people all over the fruited plane in the middle of the night I didn't hear a PEEP out of those people okay I didn't hear a peek I haven't heard a PEEP about all the people that have been told by Biden You can just come in and they're going they're being abused by the cartels they're drowning in the Rio Grande You had 50 that died in some shed in Texas I heard no outrage about any of that I haven't heard outrage about all the fence and all that's come across the border that's killing Americans and record numbers I don't hear I don't hear outrage about the criminal aliens that have gotten through and have then victimized people not only in Florida but all throughout the country How to hear any outrage about that The only thing I hear them getting upset about is you have 50 that end up in Martha's Vineyard Then they get really upset Now the media are lining an airport near Rehoboth beach Because word has it that Ron DeSantis may be Abbott or sending illegal ailments to Rehoboth beach This is something as you know publicly I've been urging I've been urging Why shouldn't they enjoy the same ocean the same bike paths The same ice cream cones as the zombie president
Breitbart: Martha’s Vineyard Could House Six Million Refugees
"No, I'm not making this up. This was on breitbart, Breitbart News. They say, according to their numbers, Martha's Vineyard could house 6 million refugees. I wonder how they came up with the numbers. Did they do the math? It could depend on how large each illegal is. I don't know if they just, if they rounded off the numbers to a certain size, illegal alien. I mean, there might be some larger, some smaller, we don't know. So anyway, here's how they did it. Since his data reports around 17,000 yearlong residents, their MRS vineyard, there are 14,600 homes. So they estimate that each home has four bedrooms, each bedroom can sleep three people comfortably, that would bring the island sleep capacity up to a 175,200 beds. A 158,200 would be unoccupied. So if anything, they're saying this actually underestimates the sleeping capacity on the island. They say if you're really packed people in, you've let people sleep in the living rooms and libraries, and dining rooms and studies, you could easily house about 400,000 illegals at Martha's Vineyard. Maybe just maybe this is the solution it is an island, and we could just move all the illegals here. What four point 4.2 million? And then you would still have room for more illegals coming across. I think this may be a brilliant solution here, is to turn Martha's Vineyard into a sanctuary island for the legals and then you can just give it to them to say, you know what? We're going to give you your own little island nation. Might even give you like an ambassador's office or something. I like this idea. So there you go. Thank you to the good people of the mathematicians at breitbart for setting the record straight there. Wow.
FDA Warns Against NyQuil Chicken TikTok Challenge
"From the hill dot com and also from CNN, they're saying now that people are cooking chicken in NyQuil. What in the world? Come on. They're literally stewing the chicken. They're marinating the chicken in NyQuil. What you take for the, you know, if you're not feeling very well. I don't know anybody who likes the taste of medicine by itself, let alone as a marinade for chicken. It's beyond me, but apparently this is something happening on the social media. Nothing good ever happens on TikTok. I'm telling you. Nothing ever. This is just like the tide pod all over again challenge. That's exactly what it is. But I mean, on TikTok, all you have are lesbian and transgender school teachers and people who marinate chicken and NyQuil. And eat tide pods. That's pretty much it. So now the FDA is warning people do not marinate your chicken in NyQuil. And they're saying that people could literally die if they marinate their chicken in liquid NyQuil. The fact that some people think this is okay, shows that our country is doomed currently. I've never seen anything like this. Again, NyQuil, this is the nighttime step police sneezing, aching, stuffy head fever, so you can rest medicine. And for the record, if you want to do anything with chicken, you have to marinate it in a lovely bath of buttermilk and hot sauce. You salt and pepper in the chicken, you dredge it in the Martha white flour, and then you put it in a cast iron skillet filled with peanut oil. That is how you prepare your chicken. That is good. You don't drench it in NyQuil. Yuck. I mean, what's next? Sudafed souffle? Benadryl brownies, grace baker. What about a Tylenol turnover? Ew. You know, you're making me lose my lunchtime appetite.
Sheriff Javier Salazar: The Facts of the Case so Far
"This is this Texas sheriff. Javier Salazar, he is known as a sort of a progressive activist sheriff, law enforcement all over the country despises this guy. I don't know why. I don't really get into that. I've gotten a lot of email and text messages from police officers and sheriff's deputies who can't stand this guy because of his activism. And sure enough, true to form, now apparently he wants to criminally investigate the Florida governor Ron DeSantis. We are opening up a case with an investigation with regard to the suspected activities involving the 48 migrants from Venezuela that as we understand it at this point. The facts of the case at this point are that on Wednesday, September 14th here in bear county and the city of San Antonio, our understanding is that a Venezuelan migrant was paid what we would call a bird dog fee to recruit approximately 50 migrants from the area around a migrant resource center on San Pedro here in San Antonio. As we understand it, 48 migrants were lured, and I will use the word lord. Under false pretenses into staying at a hotel for a couple of days, they were taken by airplane at a certain point. They were shuttled to an airplane. Where they were flown to Florida, and then eventually flown to Martha's Vineyard. Again, under false pretenses, as the information that we have, that they were promised work, they were promised the solution to several other problems, they were taken to Martha's Vineyard from what we can gather for nothing for a little more than a photo op video op. And then they were unceremoniously stranded in Martha's Vineyard.
Texas Sheriff Probes Migrant Flights to Martha's Vineyard
"Now a Texas sheriff wants to criminally investigate the governor of Florida for sending illegals to Martha's Vineyard. The freak out over 50 illegals sent by plane to Massachusetts continues, and I can not be happier. I can't believe it. Do they think this makes them look good? I mean, I didn't see this coming. Ron DeSantis is now under criminal investigation. For sending 50 illegals to Massachusetts, the Miami Herald is reporting on this. A Texas sheriff, the same sheriff, Javier, Salazar, whose community saw 53 smuggled illegals perish in the back of a semi tractor trailer on a 103° day in bear county is now going to criminally investigate the Florida governor for sending 50 illegals on an air conditioned plane to Massachusetts?
Charlie Pierce: DeSantis' Immigrant Flights Are Not Legitimate
"So this whole Martha Martha's Vineyard story. Of course, just gets worse and worse. So 50 migrants were from Texas to Martha's Vineyard. From Texas to Florida to Martin. Right. Right. Right. They were given a brochure about housing cash assistance and jobs for refugees. There's one problem with what the brochure was promoting the migrants aren't anywhere close to being classified as a refugees. It's very specific term under U.S. immigration law. The implicit promise of help, therefore, was misleading and potentially criminal. One prosecutor said, this is additional evidence that shows in writing that those false representations were made in order to induce our clients to travel. I mean, okay, so when we have one sheriff, that is investigating this. There are Salazar. I'm rooting for him. I'm telling you. Right. But I mean, Charlie, I don't know. I don't know in what way it's not, it is not illegal, but there's double down there. I'm in there somewhere. Right. Right. You know, I mean, you're going to have to dig for it a little bit. But somewhere in there, someone committed a crime. Right. Because there's no way this whole thing was legitimate.
Charlamagne Tha God Calls DeSantis 'Genius'
"What's happening on Martha's Vineyard is a win for the country. The way the left is being exposed away, the left is unveiling exactly who they are, and exactly what they believe. This is a win for America. Because now we know even charlamagne the God. As a matter of fact, let's play that one more game. If you don't mind here, Sean, let's play charlamagne the God again because this shocked the jeepers out of me. And I want you to understand that charlamagne the God is why am I Sancho? I hate saint Charlotte main the God. Charlemagne. He's onto something. Audio clip number three profile Sean. Republican governors have sent busloads of illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities like New York, D.C., and Chicago with the message of, if you like them so much, they're yours, okay? Well, Justin time for Hispanic heritage month Florida governor Ron DeSantis upped the game by sending two playing folds of immigrants to the east coast, a leash favorite vacation island, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. I personally think it's genius. But I wish that governors like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott would give democratic governors and mayors more of a heads up because then that would expose the hypocrisy of the Democrats, which is they don't want immigrants here either.
Grant Stinchfield Details the Mexican-American Border Crisis
"About immigration, we've got a crisis on our hands. We've been saying this now for the last two years, president Trump had us moving in the right direction by no means do I try to tell you that we didn't have an immigration problem, even when president Trump was in office. We most certainly did. But we were on our way to correcting that problem between building the wall between remain and Mexico between getting Mexico to help us with the immigration and stem the flow coming out of that country. We were on our way. And we had made great strides. Now, kiss it all goodbye. And so to make a point and I think they've gone above and beyond making their point. Governor desantis and governor avid in Texas, desantis and Florida has sent these migrants to Martha's Vineyard to Chicago to Philadelphia, these left wing liberals, limousine liberals, as I call them, cry foul, they say that it's a chaotic scene that there's a crisis, do you know what it's like and Del Rio, Texas? These are little tiny towns. They can't handle this. Oh wait, Martha's Vineyard's a little tiny town too. Apparently they couldn't handle 50 migrants compared to the 15,000 every day that we see in Del Rio, Texas.
Sen. Ted Cruz: Everyday, More Illegals Should Go to Martha's Vineyard
"Ted Cruz says this should not be the end of all of this. He says that every day, every day we need to be sending more and more illegals to Martha's Vineyard, cut 11. To put in perspective, Martha's Vineyard is a town, its population is about 17,000. The median home price is over a $1 million. Let's compare it to Del Rio Del Rio is a wonderful town in Texas. It's down on the Rio Grande valley. It has a population of between 30 and 35,000. In one single day at Del Rio, there were 15,000 illegal immigrants, mostly Haitians, crossing illegally in one day, as you know, I went down to the bridge and I videoed over 10,000 illegal immigrants under that bridge, Martha's Vineyard lost their mind with 50 and the little town of Del Rio and towns all up and down the Rio Grande valley are dealing with hundreds or dealing with thousands. Let me say Sean, I commend Greg Abbott for sending the immigrants to these blue cities. I commend Ron DeSantis for doing so, and they need to do more tomorrow. Martha's Vineyard needs a hundred. The next day they need 200. The next day they need a thousand D.C. says it's a crisis to get 6000. They need 10,000 they need a 100,000. They need 500,000 because Joe Biden has allowed 4.2 million people to come in illegally. And I know these rich billionaires say, well gosh, you people just let them eat cake. Well, how about having the obamas host these 50 people in their $12 million compound? Wait a minute. No, no, no. None of them.

"You pushing yourself still still haven't goal when you're. You're expecting your fourth grandchild in about three weeks still having some sort of a running goal, it's. Those are good things so. Live and learn there. We go. Yeah well. I enjoyed it very much it it. It it touches a lot of subjects that I like about running and and think about when I think about running, so it's it was very interesting. I, I enjoyed it very much. What did you learn from writing this book? You know! This was my second book and. One of those a little more pro e than my first one and what I mean by that was that I? Engaged in a little more storytelling and. What was interesting is as I, was writing this book and talking to people a bomb writing a book about running, it was. Almost. Instantaneous people would start telling you. They're running stories and. It is stories are fun and as a trial or I'm fascinated by people's stories and what I I go in the courtroom and I tell my clients story and I. Don't something that was made up. I mean. I'm telling what their experience wise. And we all have experiences to share and storytelling as an effective way. She share. And I know we've got friends that they you know you once they start telling stories. They never shut up. I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about good story. We all like good stories and. For me! I mean did I learn that storytelling is important to me? Maybe I already knew that but. This reinforced it or sharp ended for me. Yeah there's some great stories in there. I I enjoyed that very much so I, one last question for you and I asked this of all my running guests. If there's any race anywhere in the world, regardless of qualifications or entry, fees, or distance or whatever. Anywhere in the world that that you went to run, what would it be? That's a good question, and it's a marathon that think will forever elude me, but I'd love to run the. Marathon so my mom and dad lived in in Monterey for about eighteen years and. I big Sur's fabulous, just my wife and my youngest son. We were out there about three years ago and It's very challenging, course very very hilly, but absolutely gorgeous and so.

"Because. That's great. That's great and. What would you? What would you like to tell your younger self? Oh take a deep breath David enjoy it. I. It's funny I. I wrote that Chapter. With myself in mind, but also with my youngest child in mind I told you I have four kids in my youngest is just graduated from Baylor. Fans is starting his career and I think watching his intensity and just thinking back to my own. You know it seemed like so much of life was spent regretting. What was behind me? Or missing it, and then looking forward to what was coming as opposed living squarely where you were. And for me Martha's. I've gotten older. I've. Come to appreciate the present moment. Much much more than I did. When I was younger. And I'm not saying. Don't work hard. Don't have goals. Don't push yourself I'm not. Saying to not do those things. But. You Know David. And you other types out there. Give yourself a little bit of grace. You know. Enjoy it this? My mother would frequently say when I was younger. This this, too shall pass, and she often said it in reference to something that was difficult, but the reality is that that's true for the good things as well. And so you know back to what you said earlier he running as a gift and each run, especially at the fifty two is a gift to be able to go and do that. I understand. Friends that can't run anymore in all and that may be. My Lot. Eventually so. And not just running and this is you know this is the idea behind my book? Is that running as a metaphor for life? Okay, so running is excellent life coach and she has lots and lots of lessons to teach us if we're willing to learn so. One of them. Each run as a gift well, let's extrapolate that a little David. Each day is a gift. Each moment is a gift. And we, we learned through adversity. We'd like to think that we learn. Through prosperity. But I think historically. That's not true I think we tend to learn. Better through adversity and. Running often presents us with adversity and I think that's one of the reasons why it's such a good teacher. You know if again if you're if you're willing to learn one of the the premises behind both of my books. First One's called. That's why they call it practicing law idea, there's we don't call it perfecting okay. Practicing Lot even though I'm impacting law for twenty seven and a half years, I have not perfected law and I never will. As long as I'm willing to keep listening and keep learning. I can keep improving. My practice and the same is true. With running and you say well, David, you just told us things change, and you'll get slower as you age agreed, but I'm talking about the experience appreciating the experience learning from the experience on it. You know it's like almost like an onion that you peel backwards and I stole this from CS lowest because I have no original thoughts on my own, but. Yeah this idea of onion being killed backwards so that each layer is bigger than the one that preceded it. And I think when I think of running and my appreciation for it and when I think of what it has taught me i. view it that way you know it just keeps getting larger and I. Don't mean that it's dominating more of my time. It actually takes up less of my time now than it used to probably. Dominates my thoughts less than it used to, but. It keeps as I get older. There's yet another facet here. I am mixing metaphors. Sorry, I've moved into jewels now. It's like fasten on a diamond ring that when you shifted a little bit and the light hits it. It's refracted and yet a different way. Yes don't want to go to philosophical about running. It's also sweating and moving and breathing hard.

"All things health-oriented I'm Martha. Use your host and each week. I present a new topic that is of interest to all runners. Welcome to episode seventy. Six of Martha Martha runs the world. My guest today. Is David Kempston who wrote the book? Lessons learned on the run a book about running in life. It's a great philosophical book about running. It's kind of autobiographical. It's all about different thoughts about running different philosophies about running different ideas about running his his opinions about certain things and running. It's really good. It's a self produced book. And! We'll have all the ways that you can purchase it on my website. Martha runs the World Dot Com. I think really appreciate David he's entertaining and he does get his message across. So, here is my interview with David. Will you welcome to the show practicing attorney, runner and author David? Kempston, Hi David how are you? Hi Martha I'm doing well. Thank you very good high. I had. You on the show because you were, we'll talk a lot about your book a little bit later on your book. Is I have it right in front of me? It's lessons learned on the run a book about running in life, but I I wanted to to talk to you about. How did you start your running journey? It's a great question. My wife has teased me immensely over the years, and by the way it's my thirty first anniversary today, so shout out to my wife Lisa, but I started running at a very young age. My Dad, we lived in Spokane, Washington at the time and blooms day the blooms day run. Sprung up in the in the seventies. Don Cardin put that together and so my father wanted me to run it with them, and I was probably ten years old. acidly, nine nine or ten and I started. Started training with him, and those were interesting days because I would rather do what nine and ten year olds do after school as opposed to running with my father, so it was my dad who got me into the sports a long long time ago and My Dad's still runs a little bit. He's in his late seventies and our last run together was about a year and a half ago on a very cold day here in Minnesota. Had High it yeah, it's just it's such. A wide expanse of time for me is a ten year old to me as a fifty year old and with my old man. Those older folks I hang out with a lot of trail runners and ultra runners, and the older ones in their seventies and eighties that just keep going they. They amaze me. Yes I have told my father that when I grow up I. Want to be like him I've told him that many times. One of them is I still want to be moving like he's moving so. I hope that happens. Well. I think the secret, is they? They don't stop yes. Seep knowing yeah. Yeah because I think they have to keep moving really and that that keeps them young. I think there's. A saying use it or lose it. And I realized that sometimes are running careers. Are brought to a sudden abrupt halt by an injury or or something else to the extent, we can keep moving. We should do that and It's GonNa Change. There's a wonderful line that goes like this you know. Things change if we have the privilege to live long enough, and there's truth to that an as we run. An Age, if we're able to keep running of course, things slow down and things hurt, and we go at it differently, but I think we have a much shoe. More profound appreciation for the act as we get older at least I do. That's true. That's true. It is a gift, right? It is is so, how many times a week do you run? These days four. I to use a word that I'm not overly familiar with him. So. I am not an iron man. It is just not in my jeans, and so I walk a lot. I Walk I walk almost every day whether I run or not. But at four times a week seems to work I I do a longer one. On the weekends I do I. Call Thursdays my perceived hard day. Because you know by my perception, it's still difficult it. And the other runs are a very intensity. Do you still race. You Know I. The last race. Iran was about two to three years ago. and. So what I do periodically is all go run a five, K, just to see. Other than that I? I don't know it's enough for me to push myself hard periodically. Time Myself. You know and be satisfied with with that, but I do. I do try to run a five k ever so often just to. Just to make sure I'm being honest. So you just really love to run just for the sake running. Absolutely you know the saying motion is lotion in. There's there's truth to that. I. I mean running is my happy place and. I have lots of places. My family I have four kids. I have three grandkids and another one coming in about three weeks and they're like doubt. I thought you said this was your happy place my well yeah, that's my happy place to. Running really is a place of restoration for me. And you know as an attorney who has. A stressful job. I've yet to meet anybody who doesn't have a stressful job, but as a trial attorney who's in the courtroom a lot? I just love the juxtaposition that running gives me I. Mean Not only. Is it this? You Know Hallway back to my youth or this deep anchor to. You know a different time in my life. But, it's also way cheaper than a psychiatrist. So what I go hit the road. Go just pound. Your, there's something about that rhythmic motion. That is very cathartic for me. Right right? Yeah, I it..

"This comes from going on the trails and listening and not being afraid fears gives off a scent. Like I was talking about if a wild animal could smell your fear than other predators can smell it as well. There's no weapon in the world is going to help you if you're afraid. You're you've already lost the battle, so you got to get rid of that fear. self-defense classes are nice way to get rid of that instead. Be, or before you get protections. Take self-defense classes I I really recommend that. If you don't have that aggression in you? That's a really good way to do it. It's take self defense, and if you still want extra protection, that's your choice. I won't ever put you down for that or say that's wrong. As long as it's legal where you live, and you know how to use it and you practice using it. That's your decision. Just don't buy pepper spray thrown in your vest and think it's magic magically going to help you when you need it in an emergency, if you carry that beverage, pepper spray and never use it and don't know how you're going to get it out. In a split second, what good is it? That goes for any type of weapon? It's a practice art to use weapons properly practice taking out of your vest and using weekly for an hour. I'm serious practice taking it out. Take it out. Take it out, use it. Take it out. Use It. Take it out. Take it out. You got to practice. This is a false sense of security. If you're still fearful and think your weapon is going to save the day, no have to have this instinct. This has to be better than just having there's it. Oh, well I've got pepper spam safe I work with people whose why pepper spray my purse. Well, it's in your purse and you're GonNa have to UNZIP it. You can have to go you know by the by the time it's too late. No, no, sorry you, you. That does work. That's not how it that that that's not going to help you at all. It could be used against you. In worst scenario would might have been an injury could result in your death. It's that serious, so practice practice practice practice. But. That is your choice. I live by my. Attitude. My cynicism and that's protecting me pretty well. Trails earn amazing place. And as long as we respect them. And we respect their beauty, but we respect that there's a lot of things to be careful out there. Then we should do fine. And really enjoy them because it's a lot more fun sometimes out there than dealing with the traffic and the city. Let me tell you. Or the cyclists in the city. I could tell. The tourists are coming back to San Francisco, because when tourist and a bike nearly ran be over today, so they're coming back, Hey! Thank you so much for joining me today, and as a little long winded, but there's a lot of things that I had to talk about on so glad you liked it. I hope you liked it anyway I should say.

"Yeah I think there's a lot more connection online that we have to have because if we don't we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA go stir crazy. I know I will. Yeah for sure. Where are you Martha? I'm in San Francisco and California Oak. Yeah I miss I really Miss Races. I missed see my friends and I got laid off my job in March so I don't have. I don't even see my work mates anymore. Let's and I live alone. So it's it kind of makes a hard but you still keep in touch with people through zumra messaging or texting or or phone calls but you have to make the effort right. Have you been able to get out run much I do I do I actually signed up for four virtual races richland? I did want. I did one this Sunday this last Sunday. It was fun. It was a bunny when I found online. It's it was the The stay soft teepee man right really. Cute is a really cute metal insurance. I did that and then I'm doing one With coastal trail runs in June. And then I'm lean. Oh I've forgotten the other two. I'm doing I one in July and August or something or they could just be done whenever but I know there's a couple more than I probably GONNA do. Just keep myself going I. I used to do longer distances. I I'm trying to get more into it now but I've had a couple a our problems with our arth rightist trying to overcome that so that's a whole nother issue but but you know I keep going. I've I've been talking to I do a lot of coaching and seven talking to a bunch of the folks that I'm working with about during this time. And and and just how do you get out the door on? Tuesday when there isn't a race there or you know where that sense of belonging isn't there anymore How can you? How can you approximate that But then also like besides that. How can you get yourself out the door? Like what meaning is there in it and it's been it's been really useful having conversations with people about that too it's hard. It's not easy and I can understand people not be motivated. You have to push yourself. Yeah I think that is it. I mean I think for some folks. It's the you know like to have some some goal. That's down the line that's exciting Can still get them out the door. Even if it's been postponed a little bit like that still can be useful to them But I think that to the idea of being useful to other people that somehow you getting out. The door is going to make you be useful to others. Be Able to be of service to others is also powerful for folks and sale Anyway it's it's always fun to talk to people about like what is the thing that gets out on Tuesday true or when you wake up and you and you're not even sure what day it is any way it's going. I extend on like. Oh that's right. This is a Mondays a Tuesday as I don't know anymore. Awful China set myself for routine in. That doesn't happen and so now but yeah for me. I needed goal. I need something to towards. I need that little pin in the distance to work tools. So that helps me but every you're right everybody has to have something and you have to have something. I don't care what it is whether it's your family whether it's your health whether it's a race whether you but you have to have something you can't. I don't think you can just go on with nothing because that just as lead at least a stagnation in my opinion especially when you're not getting to run anywhere Nice. I mean I get to go run somewhere beautiful like that. You like. It's lovely. It's fun you're having to do like tiny loops around your page neighborhood. Yeah there has to be some meaning because it won't be fun like you know and I think it's. It's just foolish to think that it will somehow be enjoyable. Set yourself up for failure like no. It's not gonNA be fine. There's GonNa be a recent so exactly exactly with. How long have you been running? I I mean I've always run on and off as running I think Maybe two thousand to wish. But maybe not for real until two thousand eight or so. I'm back historian. Somewhere around. It was the first time you decided that this is for me. Pretty much right off the bat. I just loved it I can. I'm not coordinated like I can't do sports but I could run in a pretty straight line for a good long while you know and happily and so like people are feeding me and yeah I think my I I think the first actual ultra I did. I did the Grand Canyon rims room to room with a friend and we had just a ball and then we did a real race. The ZANE Grey Fifty K. And that was. That was so much fun and I just loved the people and you know just how tolerant and kind and supportive everybody was and so and then I just I fell in with a trail running group here in San Antonio and One thing leads to another. It was just a lot of peer pressure. Yeah so he's up here pressure to sign up for another race. Oh no but we're going to okay. Sure sure people seem reasonable. Yeah so long enough to have seen the changes that have happened in Long enough to feel like I can. I can be useful with what I've learned. Yeah the that's fun and and sure it's going to. It's going to hurt like Atkin and going to be painful but it's GonNa be fun and I mean it's just so much it's a it's so fun welcoming people into this community you know because there aren't that many bad apples and so it just feels so you know especially like like we said you know he's had such an impact on our lives for so many different reasons. It's just a joy to be able to say like. Hey come on in eat all these friends that I've made you know. Come do this thing that. I know that you're going to love like if you like running at all like good grief. You're going to love drill running and what you know what happened here. And if you can't run there's so many ways to plug into our to what we do and still have so much fun. Oh yeah which is the best part of being on the trail for me. Yes I think for me it I it just Steadies my mood kind of evens out my mood and the best part for me is actually being. I mean I enjoy the run. I love the movement. I'm very happy but afterwards it's knowing that I'm going to be feel very peaceful and be better mother. She tired to be crazy Yeah I think that for me. That's why that's what I love about running the how it affects my mood. That's terrific yeah I I think it mean it doesn't take away. It doesn't solve our problems but it's puts things into perspective if we go to a beautiful place and leave a lot of that tension out on the trail right and I think that and then within the context of racing you you know you humbled which is a good practice you know and I think you gained so much empathy for other people And so much more intimate respect for other people who are accomplishing Greek feats Yeah I think fundamentally it makes you more More calm more empathetic for sure. That is for sure. What is your favorite food at the aid station? It's funny I was just talking to somebody about aid stations and maybe something good. That will come out of this. Horrible pandemic is how aid stations will be a little bit less of a vector. That's funny it's like my goodness. How have we not gotten sick all the time you know like when people like? Oh yes you know. The running these long distances affect my immune system. I tend to get sick after races. No it's because you've been touching jelly beans ninety other people touched before you you'd station stuff. Gosh good question. I think the best thing I've ever had an aid station was the middle of the night. I had It was at NASA nut and hundred. I was pacing a friend and it was a sausage wrapped in a pancake that they gave us an to go back and have to say what about you. What is your favorite? It's nothing like fried meat. I think my best mall. My best thing was having Bacon early in the morning when it when it was really warm and Oh my God that was just one little piece and that was so good. That was real a station with that Bacon. Smell there's nothing better like is rising and all that was. That was good. But you know I. I don't get sick very often and I think it's because I think people who who planned the dirt trail runners are probably are more than people who sterilize everything because when you use a lot of that the pure L. and stuff you're not only killing bad bacteria but you're killing good bacteria and well you know there's there's there's a race company here in town and they have they have a pair of boys and they take their little boys with them at every race and the boys go out and they play their little trucks in the dirt. Everything like that every weekend. They're out there. And and they have little kids. Ron sedillo boys running the race. So they're raising their kids right to do racist stuff and then the little boys are never sick. And they're probably mean to everything because they've been at are out there plane rather than being at home in a sterile environment all the time you know and I think I just think that that if if you're out there playing nature where we should be rather than at home in a sterile environment you're probably more immune to things and you have a stronger. Immune system that I decided to sort of. I know I will say that. My House is pretty filthy right now so I my children. You're making them strong ways to purchase. At least that's my excuse is a pain but yeah so. I know I wasn't raised. I mean my my mom was was pretty was pretty spotless. But she wasn't like the type that used used pure l. and everything so I don't know but so what is your favorite distance to run. I really like belt buckles and so hundred mile distance as my very favorite to run. Which what was your favorite hundred miler than Rondo? I've run lead bill a number of times and I used to work route..

"Is organized. Well doesn't just like helping people and you know I try and think about the different people in my real life that are on my client roster right now and the discussions. I've had with them in the last twenty four hours and you know try and use that to share some information. Because I know that there's people out there listening that don't have access to coach and are probably going through the same problem so I kind of try and talk to my client through. Microphone and make it open to everybody very cool very cool. So just just start. What exactly is binge eating so binge eating is a? It's a term that people use relatively frequently when they just mean eating a lot of food and not necessarily something that's pathological or really a mark of disordered eating. Some people say like oh I binge watch a show or went on doritos binge. And they're simply referring to a very large consumption episode. And there's nothing wrong with that but we do want to separate it for clarity from what we mean. By binge eating in the sense of the definitions that used to clarify who may be dealing with disordered eating or a psychological condition so binge eating if we're talking the disordered eating sort of symptom would be eating a large amount of food more than somebody would eat on a regular occasion will say so it kind of an abnormally large amount of food and it's also got to be coupled with a perceived loss of control and that's very frightening thing Martha if you can imagine like feeling like your brakes are failing in your car and you can't stop. It's a feeling something like that when it comes to food like. I don't want to be doing this but I can't stop. So when people do have those episodes they often. They feel ashamed about them. They feel distressed over them and they often gain unwanted weight because of them. So that's what we help people move away from. Did you go through this yourself? I actually did not. I have plenty of history with food myself. That's gotten complicated. Ugly Binge eating has not been one of the things. I've gone through. Personally I do have a history of restrictive eating as well as overeating in the emotional eating sort of sense so I have definitely eaten too many cookies compared to what my body needed and I did go through periods of having maybe twenty extra pounds on me and moving away from those emotional eating habits and learning how to eat more in line with my body needed for health and for my training now helped me kind of get to a healthy body weight and interestingly binge eating and emotional eating while they're not exactly the same thing they're like two expressions of the same sort of problems and they respond really well the same sorts of interventions. You know I I never thought about that. But I I think we'll all disorders. Eating disorders comes from our emotions and our feeling of well-being or or not or ourselves right. Oh totally yeah you know. There's certainly a component that can be driven by food. But there's I think you're right that there's always some sort of component that's related to. Why were making those choices? And it's usually linked to emotional distress of some form an. It's a coping mechanism. We're simply trying to solve an issue that we have right right. I mean I. I'm sixty one and in the eighties. I was underweight. I I was not happy at all but I hardly ate so I was like ten pounds underweight. Y- I was. I would go like two days without eating and running. I would be running and everyone would say oh how great you look and everything like that but I was really unhappy and I was sometimes not a nice person because I wasn't getting any nutrition. In how understandable and it's unfortunate isn't it that people will sometimes praise how somebody looks when they don't recognize that? The person looks that way. Because they're doing unkind. Or maybe you know bad for their health things and it almost encourages the person to keep doing it right right. And and this is real stigma with with Benji needs who I imagine absolutely. Yeah it seems like you know. Many people have experienced weight stigma so where they're treated less respectfully or just given preference for job promotions or social interactions because of their size and then furthermore like when some health professionals meet somebody and they learned that they have binge eating disorder novel Professionals Know How to handle it. And sometimes people misunderstand it as oh this person is just just eating too much. Let's give them a weight loss diet. Which is one of the worst things you can do right right. Well I think that's what your podcast as helps a lot. It brings that out in. The open makes helps us understand it. More what is the most moving thing you've heard from someone about your podcast? I think when I hear letters You know people write me an email or facebook message and they just say that it helped them and that they're trying things from the podcast and that it's changing their life. That's just that will never get old. I get a lot of those emails in every single one is like. I'm aware that it's a voice of a human being out there and it just it touches me so much. I feel so privileged to do what I get to do and I'm just glad when people tell me that it's changing our experience. That's wonderful that happens. Just feel so good that you're you're doing some people are actually listening and you're helping people in their lives that's amazing. I'm sure you get the feeling to sometimes when we're podcasting we feel like I've just talking to this vacuum this like empty space and is anybody even listening and so when somebody writes back in there like I am listening and it's helpful you feel like okay. I'm not wasting my time. It's true so true. What are some tips? If someone thinks that they are ab- injured that they're not sure something like that. What some of the first steps that they should do. I think one of the steps. It's helpful for everybody regardless if they think they have binge eating disorder or if they feel like man sometimes I just eat too much and I get a stomach ache. We don't have to separate people. Who have pathology or a condition versus people who are kind of upset by their eating? You know it's it's a healthy set for anybody to want to improve their eating and eat an amount that's healthy for their body and so one of the best ways of doing that is trying to get more in touch with our body's cues and a lot of runners or other athletes are actually ahead of the game there because we're used to feeling our bodies and feeling you know. There's more effort involved in chugging up a hill or I can feel when I'm not taking in enough fluid and I'm getting dehydrated or that fuzzy headed feeling so just like we tune into our bodies doing with workouts and races. If we can tune into that experience as we're feeding ourselves and between meals we can tune into whether we're overdoing it and our bodies not asking for more food or if we might be under doing. Nobody's asking for food but we might not be responding in a timely manner. Does that make sense? Yes that actually does make sense it. It's it's like We practice it like we practice are running understand what's going on with our bodies like we would as we are running. Yeah and more is not better and less is not better just like running right now that see that makes a Lotta sense. So it's about getting the right dose for you your training and with your food. So what are the most common things that I talk about the helps? A lot of people is to practice only eating when you're hungry and naturally if we're going to start looking at the world that we have to determine what exactly hunger is because sometimes I desire food or have an appetite for food but if I call that Hungary that's not exactly accurate. So what I use to define. Hunger is an abdominal sensation. So it's gotta come from your stomach and it might be grumbly or it might just be kind of like an empty hollow feeling that you want to put something into your stomach. And that's different from feelings that we might have desiring food such as if we smell somebody popping popcorn and we just think like all the aroma and the crunch would be so nice of that popcorn. I WANNA taste it. Those things aren't really abdominal center. There more nose and mouth and head centered so we could separate those as but not necessarily hunger. Have you felt those two different things Yourself Martha? Oh yes very much so so you know you can kind of it can take a second because it's really easy to just be like me want food me want eat but it we stopped. We can decide. Is this just a desire or is it actual hunger and try and align the times that we eat with feeling that actual hunger I can go along way? Impairing out unnecessary feeding incidents. It's true I mean when you when you smell the popcorn or or you see chocolate or something like that. That's different because if you're hungry an apple will feel good. No yeah jobs are not going to do it if we only want like one specific food like it has to be that food or it has to be something that's sweet or salty that's usually a desire at not true hunger because true hunger is like. I have pretty much. All food will be an improvement on. This situation will be right back to the show just after this. You may have seen the free shave secret samples in your race swag bags. Maybe weren't too sure so you didn't try any. Let me tell you I did..

"Five hundred sixty four headache specialists in the United States. For forty seven million people with migraine. So that math works out to about eighty five thousand patients per provider which is just not possible. You could. You can't get in to see a provider. They have eighty asthma patients so by supporting these fellowship. Programmes or trying to encourage more providers to get into the field of headache medicine And to get more involved in research to understand this disease more ultimately get us to cure. Wow I didn't realize that was so low. I know it took why I went to see And I learned how to say this word. Auto alert Larry. I know that miles for Migraine does other events. What kind of other events do you do? Yes so in addition to these walk run events that are happening in twenty four cities around the country. We put on Educational Days Calm Patient Education Day and that those are in the same cities that we have the walk runs in and they are usually from like nine. Thirty two two. We bring people in to have a couple of presentations on things like updates in the latest treatments for migraine headache. Disease and Coping mechanisms for dealing with chronic pain. And then we have a lunch and then we break off and do what? We call experiential learning. So we don't people to just sit in look at presentations on the wall. All Day We want them to experience things. That could be helpful for them so we may do Haven't art therapists come in or have somebody do chair? Yoga or biofeedback Taichi e anything that could provide a person living with migraine headache disease with some tools that they could incorporate into their toolbox as I say for different things to try when they're not feeling well. That's a nice alternative to do. And that helps people learn a little bit more about their disease absolutely and have We have our youth program series so in just a couple of cities around the US. We HAVE PROGRAMS TARGETED TO TEENS. Who are living with Migraine because they to deal with a very little in terms of support systems And this brings the teams together. We have what we call a day camp. So it's just a day long Gathering the teens come together and they get to know each other become friends and can relate to each other and then there's also a separate track of programs for the parents attend so parents can learn how to better support their children in terms of you know Getting the support. They need in school in helping them with you. Know social challenges due to migraine disease. Oh that's great. That must be so rough to be. It's hard being a teenager as it is having to suffer from migraines. I can't even imagine it. Yeah so now. What's what's planned for. Twenty twenty or how many races do you have this year yet? Twenty twenty this is going to be our biggest year yet You know I think we're looking at twenty four races the share An eighteen of these days The youth programs will be happening. We've also started migraine community groups so in various locations around the country will be hosting These gatherings that are just like an hour to for people to come together and discuss Stated Topic We've got virtual option for that too. So if we're not in your community you can dial into one of the community events community groups so I think we are looking at about fifty six events happening this year while you are busy are a so. What have you learned from doing All these events and working with a miles for Migraine you know I think one of the biggest things is that We say we've kind of learned in in we try to explain to people that advocacy really needs to be part of everybody's treatment plan Advocacy takes many different forms. Showing up at one of our events is advocacy Wearing amounts for migraine shirt. Telling somebody that you're one of these people who's never told anyone that you have this disease but opening up in sharing so that people know you know that you may appear to be perfectly normal person. But she may be living in a lot of pain. And if you can just let your spouse your best friend your parents know about this. It helps to break down the stigma of the disease. I think the and more we talk about it. You know these days when I tell people what I do for Work I say I work for migraine advocacy nonprofit. It's very rare that they don't come back and say oh my Gosh. I know my whatever Fran Brother. Sister Aunt also has migraine. I can't believe you know how horrible it is. And that's what we need to have happen. We need more people to talk about this and realize that so many people are impacted and that this disease deserves more attention. It deserves more funding and more research. Yes yes I agree. That's very very wise will thank you so much for joining us today and I know that this will give people a lot of information. I will have your the website link on my website so that people can get all the information that they can and join up on the racist because the your race is a lot of fun and if I can make it this year I will and Yeah and I'll talk about it some more and I hope you have a great day and I really really appreciate you coming on the show.

So I became a board member on the retrial and during the time period I was also circumnavigating and it was signing a each time I hiked or ran or bike Segment I always thought it was my most favorite section of the route trial so a lot of people that's kind of where the question of what's your favorite section gender your favorite view. Because every time I discovered a new section something amazing about it that I hadn't experienced in the past it made it Really easy and what was also neat about circumnavigating. The retrial is just accessibility so a lot of it was just maybe forty five minutes in a different direction so it was a lot more accessible. Looked when you kind of look at the whole big map and I was just able to switch up Maya Saturday. Ron Go someplace new so yeah so. I didn't in Less than nine and what I did is just took those moments of time that I had free To do a section of it but with people are considering of coming circumnavigators. I really think you don't have to do it in a year. Two years or three years really think about what type of experienced with light on the retrial. It could be anything from Ryan to photography to have a new spot height with your hiking group. And just get out there making your own experience when you start hiking at you. Just really searching realized the diversity of the bay area in topography and they're so much more than Trials in your backyard. Even though they're amazing beautiful old airs these experiences that are just down the road. That are completely different. Yeah Yeah it is. We can be get ten minutes away from our house. We can be out in the wilderness. It yes it's that. Yeah you're in the city and just captured a perfectly. You're literally in the city stuck in traffic and then ten minutes way. You feel like you're the only person out there. Sometimes you might only personnel on. Yeah it's it's true it's true you are the more remote and get less old and I. It really gives you. I think perspective and what we're finding out now through research is that outdoor time is really great for your health and it's now becoming a prescription from some doctors people to enjoy the outdoors. Absolutely well I wanNA thank you so much for being on the show. This is great. This makes me WANNA go out and get up to Mount Tam Right now but after the weekend But thank you very very much for being on the show and I hope this speech in the bay area more involved and visitors who come to the bay area they can check it out and visit some of the trails. I can't wait to see all the new additions to the Ridge trail this year and in the years to come and hopefully in the near future will see a complete yes. Well I'm excited when it does complete I hope that as far as all being able to be there for the dedication and walk saddened segment absolutely and thank you so much for being on the show and I hope you have an excellent week and Talk to you soon. All right bye okay bye. Thank you so much Luana. It was a real pleasure to have you on the show. I learned so much about that wonderful trail that we have. We're so lucky to have that here. I will have all the links for the Bay Area Ridge trail on the website. I also and something that a lot and I talked after the interview is that the Pacific coast trail runs at one of the trail run race. Companies Sponsors a Bay Bay Area Ridge race series. They had I think they have to three different races throughout the year for the Bay Area Ridge trail and it goes on parts of the rich drill. I've done one of them. I did the thirty seven. K that goes from the San Francisco because from Baker Beach and San Francisco and that goes over the bridge and then he goes out and then ends at Stinson Beach. So I've done that distance. It's really fun. It was a great race. They also have one at East Bay and I believe there is one in the South Bay too. But I'm not sure about that. But I'll put their link on the website too so you can check it out and do one of those races. They are wonderfully run. They're excellent race company. You will have a great time very fun. People run those races and volunteer work at those races. It's just a lot of fun. You will not regret it now. The thing that she mentioned is a barrier bear bait. Can I talk berry? Esa Bart Station? It's not open yet. Bart Bay Area Rapid Transit. It's our train station. It's like a quote unquote rapid train. That goes all all around. Most of the bay it's It's not that fast. Not really and they're not that fast. As far as building new stations. They usually are very late. They never come in within schedule. So there is one in northern San Jose which is about time they should have had things down to San Jose. Sooner but there's a lot of politics especially when you get in the suburbs Barry Esa. Why am I having a hard time saying that? Berry? Esa Bart stations should be open soon and there is a trail right from that Bart station. That would be really fun to follow and it'd be like I said it'll be great to have a Bart Station in San Jose. Lots of stuff in San Jose for people see but we can't get to without Bart. We could take the the train the real trains but they're massively slow and wickedly overpriced all right. There's a lot in that and I'm not even going to get into because it's not about running asked me sometime. If you see me in person. Okay all the links will be on the website and you'll be able to see. What is the website? Martha the website is Martha runs the world dot com on the website as well you can donate to patriots.

"Could choose any place in the world would money no option. Where would you like to live? Would I like to live. There's a good question probably rather be maybe more nomadic at a few different places down. Yeah I don't think I've it's a really good question I really. I mean we both really like living in Canada because it's has its perks but we can't tolerate a full winter. Which is why we always go away? But I mean I'm sure every spring we go down to provide North Carolina for A couple of weeks cycling trip. I think I could definitely see myself living in a place like that. There's just so many outdoor opportunities right great from the front door there and Yeah spring comes earlier and fall last longer. So that's always pretty nice so I think of all the places I've been in front of traveling in North America. That was kind of the one place that would be pretty interested to see spend more time there for sure. Sure it's pretty there in the whole Carolina areas is just Yeah we'd love it. Yeah that's nice. Is there a particular the time of day that you like to write or do you just right when you find the motivation and you say you don't write as much anymore but do you just. It's not right because you don't have the time or you're not motivated or I mean my favorite I like. I'm a morning person so I like like to do that. And then that also in the afternoon I used to ride Morin evenings but find that kind of disrupts my sleep and we all know important. That is nowadays. I don't do that but the reading world kind of you know. I've been riding nutrition and cooking articles for magazines for no probably fifteen to twenty years now and and that kind of business has changed a lot. You know a lot more online but that so I'm about to kind of transition more into doing more online nutrition nutrition writing and so that's kind of a bit of a a bit of an eye-opener for me and sometimes not as rewarding as kind of the longer print kind of articles that way. They'll try to figure all that out. Yeah Yeah it's it's a lot different now that's for sure. Yeah when I started there was no you know. None of the none of the magazines really had like a huge online presence GONNA win. I started But now some aren't even and a couple of the ones I've ridden him for. They're like well. We're not really doing any kind of nutrition in print anymore so it's all going online so that's where that's where they want. My services says for better or worse so we in one thousand nine hundred nineteen in two thousand thirteen. You won the James Beard Award for food. Journalism was there a particular cler article you went for. Yeah it was a part of a series but it was an article with men's health magazine on kind of At the time and there still villas. There's kind of some really fascinating research about how the bodies is calories. There's a huge difference between not huge but a notable difference between how food is is processed. Or if it's cooked or UNQ- tour what forms it is. On how many calories we kind of extract from it and how her body uses it So one example would be how if you take a bunch of almonds the turns out that we can extract all the calories from it It's just a way kind of the. The fat is incorporated into into the cells in the food. And but if you take the same amount of like peanut butter it's your body can actually digest a little more of it. Because it's already almost being predigested for you so another example would be bred for if you take cohee bread and versus Like holy berries like the actual real whole grain whole wheat. This chances are your body's going to require. Ah More digestion to break down the less processed form of that week. which in the long run could mean the difference in a few pounds of body weight despite the fact that you're using extra calories in extracting less calories from the food so yeah it's pretty? That is pretty interesting science that way. That's that's fascinating and trends. Come and go with that stuff. That's science that doesn't change well. Yeah there's some scientists who I believe that's how we evolved our brains bigger when we're able to cook our food because you know more calories were available to us and we did have to chew on grass for ten hours a day. Hey but now it's almost become. I mean North America so many people are having trouble with body weight and obesity because food Buddha's processed. Yep So we have so many calories so it almost like be better. If more of US went back to eating forms of food you'd actually harder for our bodies to take more work for our bodies to break down well exactly in the whole state. If you eat grains it should be an it is whole forum right. I mean bottom as much as possible. Yeah he liked people say bread is the whole but you know that's not really that much in its whole oh form yeah maybe that the whole it had to be broken down and put turned into flour and and those processes so right. You've been it's it's even even when other example would be you know a lot of runners and cyclists. They love oatmeal in the morning. But if you can eat steel cut out meal instead of rolled steel. Bill cuts little less broken. Doubt you know exactly you can buy whole weep aries and cook them as as like a great. I need those can do that. We do that we do that. Like what those type of grains all the time sure sure makes out of that. Yeah Brown rice over over white rice. Obviously because it's got the the whole on it and if you're GonNa do that cook less of it added more vegetables and then you've got your bonus. Yeah exactly and that's There's another science there they call volume metrics. Where if you took out if you had to play to pass to and you had so you started with one hundred percents passed a took a twenty five percent and added in twenty five percents Said like Broccoli or something you kind of have the same volume of food. So you're tricking your body into thinking it's getting the same amount of food so you tend not to be feeling deprived at hungry. That much afterwards. Interesting I like data volume metrics. That's very cool. Yeah I love good food good vegetables and things I have like boot in general but I've been trying for this month. I'm on whole thirty so which is actually really helping me understand my relationship with food which is giving me a whole new outlook and it's really helping me a lot so I'm good with it and basically have vegetables with every meal and right right now just eat. Everything is whole and and everything organic as possible and keep everything to its natural state as possible and know processed foods and so it's okay. I think the only hard part I'm having is there's no dairy so I'm Hav- Having to do with almond milk in my coffee which is Kinda hard but other than that. Well I think people a lot of people like milk more in their coffee but it's OATMEAL so I it's no grains right. It's for thirty days so you know I can go back to it. Sure but if but it's it's kind of like a reset I don't usually do extreme or or our. It's not even a diet food plans where the cat out foods because I I'm not really into that but I thought I looked into this and I said Okay for thirty days I can do this. It'll see how things are and how I feel about these foods and then if I want them. I cannot the backhander if I don't want to I don't have to so so do you do bike graces it all now or do you. Just ride your bike for For exercise or or. How's that going? No no I used to do some racing but not anymore I would just kind of say more of kind of adventure cycling where I just I love exploring and developing new Cycling routes and and and go from an do that type of riding as opposed to like kind of set set races. I just found that wasn't as rewarding as just going exploring on two wheels so mindset these days that may change I mean sure sure d. Do you do now. I'm not a cyclist but do you. Do you like road cycling clean or Mountain biking. I think the two once I focused on our mountain biking and a gravel Kinda gravel riding. Okay it's just become a lot popular. These days pays for various reasons. You get to see new places and also people are now more and more kind of the. Don't want to be in traffic all the time. It's not getting not getting overly any too much safer F.. There be cycling on some on the on the busy roads. So there's been a huge explosion and gravel gravel style riding and grabble style races. And and what. What's now being called like bike packing? which is like cycle turing but mostly focusing more on kind of non-payment surfaces which is Which is kind of what we've been doing a little bit more of in the last couple of years? Well that's Kinda cool. See I like like that. That and it it is dangerous. I know I live in the city where it's really dangerous for for cyclists very and we even had bypass and everything's dangerous but that is yeah that that sounds really cool so that way you have the access to dirt roads and if you need to go on bike trails you can. You can pretty much do both. If you go to grab away I would imagine right. Yeah I mean it just opens up so many more miles of impossible terrain to go explore and get excited about S- cool and Yeah where we live. We're lucky we have quite a bit of a countryside side not too far from our front door that that The snow shortage of cycling routes. So we can choose from Nice now after your trip hip when you come back. What do you have planned for the rest of the year rest of the year? Probably let's questions. I will get back and I always have a handful of science writing assignments nutritional assignments I need to get got got any any plans on another book or anything nuts in the foreseeable future There's a few ideas. I kind of kind of kind of kick around. I mean I could do a whole nother rocket fuel because I have ever since I made that book be playing with a lot more recipes. I could I probably have another arsenal of now. They're Fuel type recipes that I could share with the world ever came to be Yeah it's I mean what I love. The most about that type of that book was just how it got me more excited to make experiment with making my own exercise fuel and and really seems to be there's no shortage of flavors and ingredients that I can play with that's great. It's a great book. It's a great collection of recipes. I urge everyone to go. Get it. Because you're GONNA love it. It really opens your eyes to to what's possible. You don't have to to eat that.

"Check it out on the website. Martha runs the World Dot Com. Welcome to episode fifty four. Today we're gonNA talk about winter. Winter is upon upon us. And we're right in the heart of it all it's cold it's miserable. It's absolutely freezing and to me. A freezing is like forty degrees. Okay for some of you. You're laughing. Forty is in cold. That's not cold for me. It's really cold. I one without running this morning and it was pretty cold. It was forty degrees. I wore shorts and I wore long sleeved shirt which I hardly ever do but I did and I was pretty pretty cold cold so I I myself up and I never did really get warm. I was happy to be home but some of you have it a lot. Hot Colder than I do I saw someone was outside. What at when it was zero degrees and they still get out there lot of people they I just don't feel like being out there and they go out and they do it Lisa G? This is hiring. I don't want to be out here. I don't WanNa do this. And then some the people get bored with that. They don't WanNa do that. They don't want to go through the same routine of being out in the horrible weather. What did he do so I'm going to put everything together at a rapid altogether? What do you do if you don't WanNa be outside in the weather and you're in a Rut so if you just don't feel like running I'm GonNa give you some ideas of how to switch it up today? This'll be a lotta fun. I'll just give you some great ideas and and we'll just have a day of it but if you're an inner read there's lots of ways you can switch it up if you're just tired of running just doing the same mold routine if you've only run roads then go trail running do some trails and if you're an if done trail running find a different place to run or do different types of trails. If you do real difficult trails go a little bit farther out or a little different different area and find some trails. You've never done before. Do something different or run on the beach. It will if you're in beach area but you know what I'm talking about. Find find something different that you haven't done before that's the the whole thing is to switch it up and find some something interesting in it. Another thing you you can do is trained for a five K.. If you haven't done for awhile find one that encourages costumes and have at it. Make a costume get. Get your friends in Bolt if you want. Think of it as a party and just have fun with it and remember the times when you were a beginning runner and had a little bit more fun with with with those kinds of events. I remember doing five ks when I was beginning running and sometimes that was a lot more fun next time you go out on your run instead of focusing on your run by itself look at the scenery stop. Don't worry about the time. Stop take pictures. See what you've been missing by focusing on your time so much take just take a Lotta snapshots take a bunch of selfish who cares. It's your run have fun fund with it go out and enjoy yourself you can also get your friends involved in sign up for relay a lot of the marathons have relays as were you just divide distance and each to a portion of it. You can train together or if you WANNA get a little bit more involved you cannot all do a ragner ignorance and they have ragner racist for on the road or trail and that we you can go out and have a really good time for a couple of days and and you can run through the night nobody can get any sleep. It sounds like a lot of fun for a lot of people might be good time practice together together. You can plan together take a trip together. And it'd be a memory of a lifetime. Lots of people love that. So that's a good idea. You could be smelly together to you can also run with the new renner. If there's somebody that you know who once to give running to try or just beginning to run go out with them and give them some pointers. It'll give you a new perspective. Used to love training beginning getting runners because they were also fresh in it and they had some great ideas in their eyes wide open. It's refreshing to have a second pair of eyes to give us a whole new view. We never thought of. I love that. Also make a better friend that way to renting friends sometimes for Life Life Lotta Times and you can also cross train or replace it with other forms of exercise or activities. He's take a spin class. If you want.

I know that you will have a lot of fun with it like I did so here. Is Tony Win. Endorphin Dude I would like you to welcome to to the show. Tony The endorphin dude. Hi Tony Hi Martha how are you today. I'm doing great. I'm so happy to have you on the show show so cool. The this should be fun. I'm excited to be here. I wanted to. I say that you started your running by Trinityhealth biggby healthy can you tell us What changed your life? Yeah we'll just long long story short I was not the healthiest person about ten eleven. Twelve years ago I weighed in at a just a hair ear under two hundred thirty pounds for my five foot. Six frame so I I was a big boy and it happened because I just had into a desk job for ten years. Ten twelve years. And eventually I just Ballooned up to like a two hundred thirty pounds hounds and I was on so many different meds for blood pressure cholesterol. And I was on insulin for type. Two Diabetes Abe's An and it just got to the point where I had a wakeup call one day and coincidentally enough it actually happened on April foles day. No joke on April Fools Day. Two thousand nine. I collapsed in my living room floor and I thought I was having having a heart attack. fortunately it wasn't heart attack but it was a really really big awakening for me. It was a wakeup call home. And so I knew then that I had to make some changes in my life. I wanted to live so that. That's how I started. Oh boy that that is really a scary wakeup call too. I mean you really had to make the choice. You have this endorphin Dude Dude. What do you call it? Is it your alter ego. I guess you can say that. It was just one of those things. That just kind of evolved evolved because So after my big scare I knew I had to do something to get healthier so I took my dog for a walk around the block. I have a little five pound Shalini. She's the half Chihuahua. Half Leaner dog and her name is Chu Baca Mauka. So I took my dog for walk around the block and I felt really adult better. I just Kinda felt okay. I'm doing something productive. And then so the next day that walk around the block became two blocks the next day three blocks and then before four I knew it. I was taking all these long urban hikes all throughout San Francisco and feeling good about myself I was sleeping better and I was dropping weight and I before I knew it within a few months I had dropped. A significant amount of weight was feeling doing great and decided that I was going to kick up running and So I started training for half Chimera Thon and you know when you have been sedentary when you've been a couch potato for many many many years and all of a sudden you Transition into this more active style. It's it. It's it's overwhelming and when I started training for this half marathon the first couple miles I got used to it. You know The first time I started running it was really really hard but but then I got used to it but in the beginning I had to come up with creative ways to make the running fun. Scientists created the endorphin dude. moniker where it's Kinda like video game In video games you keep playing and you just like knock out your opponents wants One by ones and you get to the next level so it's Kinda like as I'm running along and I see a bicyclist in my head. I'm endorphin orphan. Dude I have to like get past that biker. You know to get to the next level and then I would see like another runner. I would see a car. I see a raccoon and so that you're not to get passed on them so like Mario Brothers are jumping on hurdles. And things like that. And then when I eat reach each mile marker I would get my little power pellets. which came in the form of like a packet of Goo you know so Video game you know so. That's when endorphin undo was created in the early stages of my running to just make fun just to make it interesting and of course Chewbacca is my sidekick you know I am Endorphin Duda she's the I couldn't think of a really creative name urge so in the beginning I asserted colored the epinephrine pup. I have no idea..

"Perfect and then that WHO's from trail and ultra running thunderdome. Thome said we need to name a diet that involves eating sugar and carbs running lots so that we can see all the soccer moms. Get on it and stop talking in about Kito. Oh my gosh okay. Well sometimes we get real tired about hearing all about Kito this. Listen Kiddo. That and and fasting and oh I'm fasting thirty five hours. Yes I'M GONNA lose all this weight we'll yet because you're it's not. Ah Fasting. You're starving. It's called starvation or yes. I haven't had a car in three weeks. I'm sure your liver is really really thanking you for that to my Gosh I birds like all other weird diets that we went through in the eighties. Yeah I I've been on the cabbage diet for two weeks. Yeah of course you've lost weight you've been eating cabbage for two weeks. Soon as you go back to regulating you'll get it all back. Gosh so so funny. Of course the reason why they lose all the weight is because it's low calorie low calorie eating low calorie eating. You will will lose weight fast and maybe it's better it sure it's healthier because you probably have never eaten that healthy eighty four and your life and it's better for you true. You're probably eating more vegetables than you've ever had before because yes it's better than McDonalds. This is true but if you just switched to a healthy diet put all your diet in my fitness pal and eat healthy meals all spread out throughout the day. You won't lose much weight so quickly but you will lose the weight and it will be healthier for you. I know commonsense weird weird dot. It's fun I know takes more work not as quickly not as fun not as hip that is trendy. I understand sorry sorry. Sorry mentioned my bad. Okay let me see. Kelly said I want an APP the blocks. Everyone's it's garment posts. Glad you're running at seven minute mile while you're intermittently fasting Karen. I'm trying to get to the grilled cheese at the next aid station. Running twice that up hills. Well no kidding right gosh. That's another thing about social media. Social media drives me crazy sometimes. Because we're doing our hardest. We're we're working so hard to do our best and then we see a post on someone. Oh I just I just did three hundred miles and in two days an owner. I feel great to never life is everything it's like. Oh Gosh I I feel pain all over from doing ten miles. We just feel like we did nothing but it so it's really hard to deal. There's some people's posts on social media. Sometimes so yeah I feel your pain totally. Feel your pain so sometimes you have have to just like block it. So Yeah Yeah. I kind of wish we had that at blockages. Yes blocked blood at the blocks. Everyone's post were were. They ran farther than me. Okay and Melissa wants all right Melissa. Once having the ability to poop before the run and never having to drain. Oh my gosh. I wish I had this one. Well my super strength to this is not not using tailwind. Sorry I love tailwind but yet can't do. It can't sorry just can't so. Oh Yeah I know. TMI TMI sorry. I'll keep going keep going. Here's one that I really really really really want. I wanted to device and that you just turn it on and stick it right in your pocket or in your best or something you just go about your business business. And as soon as you hear someone with those little mini speakers blasting music and it's always bad music someone who plays good music you never hear good music slayer or or classic rock or something. You never hear some good stuff coming out. Whenever you hear some blasting music out of little mini speakers you pass them synergy here that you wave your hand and the music instantly shuts off what's gone? I want that device. It comes back on as soon as you're out of hearing distance I want that device so bad so please someone invent this device. I want this device. Yes you invent that device I will buy it running watches. Don't get me wrong. I love my Garmin Watch. I love of garment garment is a great company. I absolutely adore them. I love them but I really really wish there was a garment watch where I didn't have to call all them fifty times to get it set up or I wish there was a running watch. It doesn't have to be garment running watch where it didn't have to call them fifty times to get it set up. I am not a tech person but I need basic things. GPS timer steps nice easy to read face and maybe a couple of extra things Arab. Sure era missing. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles. I needed to have enough. I need it to go at least twelve hours. I need to be able to charge it while I'm wearing if you other things they needed to have some things on it. It has kept be just a basic what. I don't WanNa have to call customer customer service fifty times before understanding how to use it. That's a little frustrating to me. I really wish watch companies would make them little easier to use. And maybe that's too much to ask. Maybe yeah maybe I'm asking too much from the watch companies but that is my plea for an easier to use watch that is it for my dear Santa The list of things I wish we had and from things are on the market already that I think that would make great gifts and I do not include clued anything super expensive on here but just basic stuff that I would like to get personally and I'm not saying that you to give me this but if I was getting gifts as a runner I would like to get these. Let's see I'll start with a basket filled with little stuff like sunscreen lip lip balm icy hot blister guards. That kind of thing. You know just little stuff like that is always nice to give to the runner in your family in your your friends whatever Nothing beats a gift certificate for the favorite shoe store running shoe store for your favorite Shoe Company for your favorite sock company. 'cause you don't really know what kind of socks they like. You may know the brand but you don't know if if they like thick or thin or color a gift certificate is always always appreciated really and it gives certificate for massage is always great. I never shell out the money for massage I never do. I think I've gotten one massage my life. I just don't and give give cert is excellent. Excellent Inspirational runny. Books are awesome to give to you. Run in your life and it doesn't have to be a new one. There are excellent ones that have been around for a while that maybe if you know that you're running friend hasn't read. It will be a great to give them as a gift race entries a race entry that you can do together. That's excellent the offer of a ride to and from a race bonus awesome or even just cheering and support at a race. Where where you can meet them at the end with a big sign? How cool is that? Treat them to breakfast afterwards. Yeah that'd be amazing along the same lines. If you don't have the money for gift for your running France babysitting. Their kids are even just when they go out for training mom and dad and the kids if they want to go to a race. Babysit the kids for them so they can go out and race for the day. What a great president I mean? I know a lot of running parents who can't go out because they've got kids or or they're too busy or one of them has to stay home or why not give them some free time so so they can go to a race together. There are a lot of things like that you can do or even give them box of cookies or you can give them a basket of of their favorite their favorite gels or their favorite. If they like honey Stinger choose things like that. It just really religious pens on what they like for me my favorite Christmas present. I've already received. which is you listeners?

"So this was like the traditional and we had to participate today. Says I hear the East Coast. Has It's more cross country races than we do. So it's kind of cool talk. Yeah the one we do back at home is more Through the streets of Try but it's fun we'll see your upstate Berkman. Oh Nice Nice for this is better weather than you have a little bit warmer here. Usually it's snowing day of Turkeytrot okay. We'll what are your plants Mansa rest of the day going home and cook a Turkey excellence and maybe a NAP afterwards. probably a beer actually or few football. Aw thank you so much for joining me. I really appreciate. It is nice to meet you. Thank you nice meeting you. Nice to meet you all right. Thank you so much. A few years ago Mab Kefelas Ziggy. PUT OUT HIS BOOK MED for mortals. He had a book signing and a run at sports. Basement in the presidio. The run was like two and a half miles or something like that and everybody lined up and they said okay people who run seven minute miles seven and a half minute miles. You're in the front. They get to run right next to Mab and the middle distance people who went eight minute miles there in the middle and the slow runners who are nine minute mile else. Run in the back and some of us are looking at each other. Say that slow. We were shocked. That's not slow to us. Some of us read like eleven twelve minute miles that slow and there's a lot of people who run slower than that I think gets in the bay area. It's kind of distorted sometimes because there are so many so fast runners but there are a lot of slower runners to and all over in the US and all over the world. They're slow runners as long as you make it in the cutoff time of the race. What difference does it make? How fast you run? It's better than it used to be. I mean I remember when I started running in the eighties. Slow was was nine and ten minute. Miles that's why it shocked me when in the in the two thousand ten's someone still thinking that nine minutes per mile L. is slow. Come on I mean really. This is like straight out of the eighties when the only choice of Shoe Kohler for women was white really in the nineteen eighties. We didn't have all the nice great color shoes we had. We had white running shoes and that was all we had. Maybe two different brands. That's it that's all we had. I get to tell you stories as about what we had to put up with back then. It was Kinda shocking. I mean I haven't always been this slow and I'm slower now with my hip problems but when I was in my twenties yeah I could read nine ten minute miles but yeah I gue- gotten a little bit slower as I've gotten older and around that same time as the run with MED. I tried to find a free renting group on meet up and I tried a couple and one of them I tried said Oh yeah I'll paces. This is welcome so I get in there and Iran. I think three times with them and I was always the last person and pretty much everyone was gone and going off to do different things by the time I finished and I always want to be the last person in the leader of the group wouldn't stay with me an anyone. Any leaders in the group would take off. There wouldn't even be around. So what's the point of running into group if you're not in a group if there's a minimum minimum pace that you want the group to be and say it in the meet up. Don't say all paces welcome if you're not going to welcome the people if you're not gonNA stay with the last runners. Why put pieces? Welcome up aces or not. Welcome Truth in advertising. Please I appreciate beat up renting groups that say please have have a nine minute per mile average running pace then you know what to expect and as long as like I said as as long as you know exactly but don't put all paces welcome the if a person comes in and they're slower than everybody else and nobody sticks with that person or the person's always running alone. I'll run alone Iran alone all the time. There's just no point in being in a group if if you're always running alone what's the point of going out of my way going all the way to a far place starting with everybody everybody taking off and me running by myself with anyway. I can do that with myself without the stress. One of the things stresses me out about races that I don't like about racist is that I'm slow. I know him Emmett at the end of the race. I always start slow when I start a race. Everybody takes off before me. I may not be the last person in the race. Only been the last person one time in a race but everybody in the world takes off before me and that is disheartening to me it just psychologically logistically i. I don't like that so that's a big stressor with races and that's why race much as a matter of fact the last ten K. I.. Everybody took off. Well granted I caught up with a few people and I was like the fifth last but still. I just don't like that feeling. It's just a kind of a sink. Think thinking in my stomach feeling. Oh God everybody's taken off and I'm going to be the last person here here I am. I don't like that very much. I try to avoid that if you have a running group. Don't say all paces welcome if the one of the leaders so the group is not going to be at the tail end of the group with the last slowest runners. That's just wrong. In my opinion the party is in in the back with the last runners. And I don't mean that the that the slowest runner shouldn't try their hardest. They should i. Don't respect slow runners who are just back. They're taking their time I'm stopping and taking pictures goofing off and partying and yeehaw just along. I don't mean that I. I don't like that I know a lot of Renters renters are walkers. I guess do five ks. Because it's a big party and that's fine if that's what you're GonNa do great but that's not what I'm talking about if you're trying your hardest and you're slow I try my hardest and I'm slow. That's great that's fine. Respect them respect those people just as much as you respect. Respect the people who cross the finish line first. They are amazing and a lot of times we in the back. We don't get a hardly any respect. I've been in big races is where they were breaking down the stations before the cutoff time San Francisco Marathon. They did that yes they did. I was in a fifty K.. Small all fifty K. A. Last June and they and they did that. They broke down eight station before I even got to it and I was well with it I was I was well within the cutoff time. Finish the fifty K.. Two hours before the cutoff and the and one of the aid stations was gone and I really could have used it because I broke one of my bottles and soil had one bottle and I couldn't really could have used that extra water so I had to. I had to make do with a lot less water and I was very dehydrated so it was kind of a safety issue. We get overlooked a many many races more racist than not when I finished. Most of the people are gone. Most of the food is gone. Yeah I finished racists where they have the the good food is gone the good giveaways or gone and that's a marathon. All of the Yemi freebies were gone. Really everything was gone but a bottle of water. That's what I got when I finished a bottle of water. Thanks loads thanks. Thanks a lot very much. That's what I got a well but but respect us us and know that we're not going away more and more people are running longer distances. And Times you're getting slower up by average. Even though the finishers getting faster than the average times are getting slower so races need to respect the back of the pack a little more so I just wanted to give out a little bit of love there for my fellow back in the pack runners. I'm here for you I am and that's why I don't have a whole lot of elite runners on here I'll have regular regular people on here and if you happen to finish first second or third. That's awesome I finished. I I tell you when you get older you start to get those first and second thirds age groups and I have done that so sticking Dick in their hang with it keep going because eventually you will get at age group winner if you stick with it thank you so much for listening and now with all that feasting from Thanksgiving. It's time to work off some of those calories until we have another one at Christmas isn't isn't that always the the case. This time of year I have some upcoming very cool shows at. I hope you keep on listening. Next week is a special show. So it's going to be deer running Santa and I'm going to ask for things that runner's don't have but I wish that we did have if you have any any ideas about special items that runner's should have and do not have.

It it's Martha runs the world facebook page or you can even go through the website at Martha runs a world dot com. And it's going to be a fun show. It's going to be either things that I wish we had that like. I said that we don't have for runners. Maybe things to alert walkers who walk three in a row like little horns to alert them that were coming up on them on the trail or something. It's just fun stuff will will make up a whole bunch of stuff and we'll oh ask running Santa for it will be a really funny show and we'll get into a lot of different things there and I hope I can get suggestions from you until then I thank you so much for listening.

"I think both from Liz like almost a lesson I learned about myself and really have had to integrate with myself but is just listening to your body and what your body's telling telling you and it wasn't until I started working with other people and it's kind of like okay. I'm giving them by giving myself that if they're having thing. You know rough day stressful day stressful week performances declining. That we really need to take a step back and listen to the body's he's telling you telling you to rest tell you to take a break backing down here training in order to really be able to perform at a higher level like you want to. I'm just really taken that step back as needed so it must be a really nice feeling that when you work with someone and they had maybe a sore or stiff sma stiff area and then all of a sudden it starts working right the way it's supposed to and you can just see some real progress that must make you feel really good. Oh absolutely I Love I just got one Last week from a client just the I'd just had you know. Pr My ten K.. Time no knee pain and I just just absolutely love getting those messages when people are. Just yeah the pain's gone away and they're PR's and you know really back to enjoying it again. That's Awesome I. I love physical therapy. I think you guys just do you folks. I should say you folks to just wonderful work and just with just a couple little exercises you you perform magic. As far as I'm concerned anyway it is. It's like it when I I was having hip problems. I got a couple of little stretches and just the it's amazing the difference how it feels afterwards wow and there and then inside inside of big deal. It's this little stretch. It's incredible I would've never thought to do that myself. Yeah so do you do any any races or do you competed heated all these days. I do I do road races. Occasionally actually my last road race aided half marathon in April April for the most part. Now it's more obstacle course racing that I am that I'm involved in more than the gist route running. Cool what What do you like to do as far as also of course? Yeah what the link there. What kind of that medium distance distance the kind of between like eight and thirteen miles the the short ones. I'm okay with I'm not my ideal. This is kind of middle distance runners anything super short or anything super long. So yeah that like ten to thirteen mile is kind of my my ideal well. Those are tough though because the obstacles in it that makes it really really a challenge. It definitely changes about that. So what got you involved in in physical therapy when I I knew when I was in high school I wanted to do something the medical field but I knew it was. I wanted to do something that wasn't just in and out of the room like a position as most times I wanted to stay around active individuals etchells and so Physical therapy to seemed kind of like the direction to go with that Then when I was in Undergrad I worked as a PTA. Just kind of make sure it was the direction I wanted to go and absolutely loved it. So that's let's direction. I went in the direction. I stayed very nice. Well it's nice to have a a set course and a goal of what you want. So what do you see yourself doing doing in the future. You know what I absolutely love to do and what I've been working on. Transitioning my business to is more of the performance. Side of things I don't like the way our if you WANNA call it. Health care system is in the fact that is just very like less. Treat the symptoms of what's going on rather than let's actually decrease these issues from happening and so I'm really transitioning to more of the. We can't prevent injuries injuries. You know all injuries. We can decrease our risk of injuries and really working on just creating more. Resilient athletes helping worth performance working nutrition aspects in order to decrease inflammation and recovery and just going from the more performance aspect rather than the rehab aspect of things. That's that's nice. Do you have Well let's see what kind of How would you put that to use? How do you see putting that into Injection yes I do a lot of I have a lot of virtual clients. They work with for this. They have some local ones too but With my runners I do a lot of video analysis looking at their running form from their figuring out. Like what exercises do we need to do. What drills do we need to do? In order to clean up whatever faults are going on and then I do a lot of programming people on Just whatever exercises are needed in order to create stronger Graf late stronger runners You know whatever their whatever their goals are in even doing running programs in order to get them to better performance Get them ready for marathons half marathons whatever it is so. It's a lot of programming. It's a lot of more assessor. retype strengthen ex- exercise in order to really get the body uh-huh more stronger resilience. Take Nice Nice. Well that sounds really good. So are you taking on any new clients right now. Our Yeah I am always I love Yeah I'm taking on new clients and someone just wants to have a chat. I love his talk on people and figuring out what's Uh home what direction they need to go terrific and well what I'll do is I'll put up all your contact information on the website when the when the episode comes out and they can get in touch with you. Yeah I always ask my guests this question if you could do any race anywhere in the world regardless you know what ever Kinda race you like. OCR whatever you want any kind of race anywhere world regardless of requirements or price or anything. Which one would it be? What's really funny? But this is my client literally just ask you this like two hours ago like is there a race that you absolutely like WanNa do. It was like well. You know to be honest. There's not like one specific race but there with all the Spartan races around the world it just kind of would love to just go to different places and make a vacation out of it so there's actually one in Australia I'm looking at potentially for next year and Yeah I just want him to go like go. Travel Places Fund that. I've wanted to travel to and do a race on there. Why not that would be fun? That would be really fun especially Australia. That'd that'd be good time.
