The Ruling Class Has Become So Disconnected From the 'Muscular' Class
"So there's two types of economic classes in America. And by the way, one is not necessarily better than the other, right? There's the muscular class, and then there's the zoom and Skype class, right? So I'm part of the zoom in Skype class, okay? That doesn't make me a better person. It just so happens. I was able to keep on doing my work in the midst of the lockdown without having to lift boxes or wear a mask all day long. But the people that actually run the country, which I think never got the credit they deserved quite honestly during the pandemic, are the people that worked at the Amazon fulfillment centers. The people that are police officers, the people that are our firefighters, the people that actually drove trucks and instead, you saw this growing disconnect of the people in charge, have this arrogance and this attitude almost as top down revolution like, oh, you work with your hands, you don't have a doctorate from Harvard, your DOM and your stupid, right? And so but we saw this bubbling up in a variety of different ways. And for those of us that look at the stuff really closely and are worried about these trends, we said, this is not sustainable. You can't declare war on the people that actually make your country run and act as if there won't be a backlash against that, right? It's like a steep on serving me food serfs and servants. And we'd always make jokes about it, you know when Nancy Pelosi would be out in Napa Valley and all of her donor Friends were maskless, right? And every single person serving food outdoors were wearing masks, right? And we saw that whether Obama's birthday party in Martha's Vineyard where, you know, we had to kind of watch all the videos of people that had to wear masks or masks, but they were a sophisticated vaccinated crowd. And we saw that some people call double standards or hypocrisy, it's not. It's hierarchy. It's people in charge I think they're actually better than you. So hypocrisy is like if you actually believe the rule or you say it and you do something else, these are people that actually think they're at a different level of
Republican Winsome Sears Challenges MSNBC's Joy Reid: 'Get Your Facts Straight'
"I know we shouldn't spend a lot of time on MSNBC personalities. But what the lieutenant governor elect of Virginia has done with one particular odious talking head over there, joy Reid is magnificent. This woman's story is astounding. She immigrated to the United States from Jamaica had a tough time it was in a Salvation army homeless shelter. Got out of that challenge and that that pressure and that toughness and that hard life, U.S. Marine ran a women's shelter, served her state as a delegate now is elected. She's the number two elected official in the state of Virginia. First woman of color to hold that position, it's a magnificent story and joy read thinks Republicans like winsome shears are racists and white supremacists somehow, and dangerous. So yesterday I saw winsome Sears on Martha McCallum's show on Fox News. This, to me, sums up everything of this week, it sums up the collapse of the woke agenda. It sums up the this was a collapse of the this was a repudiation of the Biden agenda. We all know it. They know it. James carville knows it. A Democrat strategist been around forever, and he knows how the game is played. And he said, woke this is crushing and destroying the Democrat party. So I give you winsome shears on Martha McCallum show yesterday on Fox News with a very heartfelt challenge to one joy, read. You have to be willing to vocalize that these Republicans are dangerous. That this isn't a party that's just another political party that disagrees with a thumb tax policy. That at this point, they're dangerous. They're dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft. White nationalism. Eventually leads to the hardcore stuff. Your reaction to that, miss Sears. I wish joy Reid would invite me on her show. I'm let's see if she's woman enough to do that. I'd go in a heartbeat and we have a real discussion without joy. Speaking about me behind my back, if you will. She talks about white supremacy. Does she know that I ran against a white supremacist? I mean, joy, come on, get your facts straight. And then come talk to

"You know they put. They put fences around capital but the borders wide open to the tune of two million criminal immigrants to this invasion thus far and as democrats report from the border but twenty five percent of them have the wuhan and they're not tested and they're just laughing at you knuckleheads putting on your man.

Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign. He's completely incompetent. The border is not closed. It has been surrendered. A man senator. Lindsey graham and bali needs if if if the democrats have the lord and the constitution and the love of america may orcas would be out. He's not incompetent. He's doing what he's being ordered to do. It's you got gotta look up the chain. The handful of people controlling those strings on biden's ira- ira- iraq. You could practically his job moving. They need a little more. Wd forty that jaw just like a puppet. Now

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 of these to get philosophical about running it, because it does represent so many things, so it is goal setting important. Speaking village.

"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. Really appreciate you. If you want more.

"Welcome to episode seventy five of Martha runs the world. This week. I am tackling trail running safety. I've already done a beginning trail running episodes, so I won't cover most of the basic stuff, but I wanna get into more of what you should take what to look out for things that you might not think of when you just want to go for run in the woods or the wilderness or wherever you go on the trail. If you're just going for a two or three or four mile trail. Run you just doing something easy. You might not even bring anything except your car key or whatever. Maybe a hand held bottle of water. You know one of those little things that you put on your wrist and you just take your water with you. That might be enough, but if you're going any where farther it isn't a bad idea to plan ahead, and to take a little bit of time and put something together, so that's what I'm GonNa. Talk about I'm also going to talk about things that you might want to look out for a watch out for and just different safety precautions to take while you're on the trail. It's a little different than running in in the city if you're not used to it. I the basics. The basics is in the US. We stay on the right of the trails, so if if it's a single, you do want to stay on the right as much as you can. Horses and the right of way has horses always have the right of way over pedestrians and cyclists mountain bikers. Equestrian always have the right of way because a horse gets, they get scared easily, and we want to give them. It's much space as possible because it can be very dangerous for the riders and anyone else on the trail. If his horse gets frightened, so they have the right away and then pedestrians, and then mountain bikers, although it doesn't always work that way of if bike is going down. Hill fast I'm not going to say I of the right away going up the hill. So I'll give that all at the by cyclists go go past, but it's usually up hill. Hikers and things have the right of way over downhill. Runners hikers as I said it's someone's running downhill. Really fast and I'm going up a hill slow. I look that runner. Go down the hill fast. That's really kind of silly of me to to say. Well I have the right of way. All right so with that said though we do share the trail with a lot of people I'm GonNa. Talk about dogs later in the in the episode so. We'll talk about them. Like I said it's not always observed, but it's it's equestrian. Horseback riders I then pedestrians cyclists. When you stop on a trail, make sure you look around before you just stop. Look around first before you just stop if you if you need to turn or go off on the side, look behind you look around. You look to the side. Look in front of you. Look everywhere because you don't know who's been going to become. Up especially if there's a Lotta turns. They can come around that corner really fast, and you don't know who's coming up. Before you leave the house, you want to do a few things you want to check the weather. Always check the weather. Weather can change dramatically and some parts of the country in the mountains. It can change really quickly. In some part in some states it can be sunny and then half an hour later it can be pouring. Even in the summer doesn't really do that. Here in California that much, but in the mountains it can. See when it check the weather, you WANNA prepare. If it's going to be rainy, it's going to be cold or hot or whatever and you want to also plan. Try to plan your route as much as you can. Before you leave the house, you know a distance you WanNa do so plan your route. If you can take a map. Take a map, or if you know the area really well, then that's fine to. If. You're going by yourself. You let someone know where you're going to go. I'm kind of bad about that I. Kinda don't I'll tell someone. Oh, I'm GONNA run in the headlines. I. Try to anyway or I. Put it in my facebook or something. Hey I'm running in the headlines I'm in the headlines or I'll be in the headlines, so at least they know where I'm at. You. You can least let someone know in the General vicinity of where you are, that's helpful. If if you have a family member, you can let them know. That, there's a lot of APPs. You can use as tracking APPS. They can track you if they want to know specifically where you are, it helps a lot. It makes it makes them feel safer or. That you're safe that they can get in touch with you or something happens. In and really I'm probably taking a little bit of risks myself, but I'm kind of independent that way. I. Don't have a family so I can do that, but if you've got kids or family, you WANNA. Make sure that that that you're safe and you want to show them the right way. You WanNa be a good example to them, so what I'm saying really and you WANNA. Make sure that if if it's an area. That's hilly. FIT scenario. That's flat. You're going to plan different you. You're going to, if you if it's a really hilly area, you may WanNa take. That's steep. You WanNa. Take polls of you use trekking poles. Take those. You want to make sure that you pack well I'm GonNa also talk about that. I don't listen to music on trails..

"Breakfasts have a lot beer. It's true. Very very true. Wow. Remember that as long time ago. So I've done my share of boozing up lots of it. I've done that. I've done my share of. Out to I've had moments where I remember the days where I had to call the after to make sure that I say something to you. Did I make you mad? Did I make a lot of myself at that bar last night or that party? Last night was I okay. How bad is that? How awful that? I have very happy though that there was no facebook or twitter when I was drinking I mean we had the Internet, but we didn't have all the social groups, so thank God for that. Little small things thank goodness. I'm really happy for the friends who did stick around because for a while I didn't have a whole lot. There is a time where where at very low point in my life I could count the friends that I had on one hand. They stood by me. They stuck with me. Everybody else left gone. When you're the lowest point in your life, you know who your real friends are because they're therefore you. saw those friends. I really think a lot. You keep running. And remember. Cherish the great moments in your life. If you are recovering sobriety or or anything that tell me about, tell me tell me. Send me an email really. I'd love to hear from you. I'd love to hear little bit your story. It's Martha world at DOT Com. Website is Martha runs the World Dot Com and I know this was a little bit different. This is an art. My usual episode, little rambling, little storytime, but I hope you appreciate it because came. All from my heart. And it's all stuff that that happened to me. Some things are little, left out, but.

Really I feel very blessed my life even with all the things in my life. I love my my parents. I know they did the best they could I love them very very much. My mom was wonderful. Don't think I ever didn't love her. I loved her very very much and my dad. My Dad was great. That they just I mean and here's the thing. I. Probably I disappointed her. And, I wasn't the child for her. And I was in the child that that she wanted me to be, but she probably wasn't. Maybe the parent that I wanted her to be so there was kind of a mutual disappointment there, right? Isn't that life? We can't use her parents are. We can't choose her. Kids are GONNA. Be Right, we against us. How anyone's going to grow up to be your anyone? Who and he was going to go up to be so we have to kind of. BE GRATEFUL OF WE ARE and.

"And we're having to give away this episode of Shaves secret for Martha runs a world listeners, the first person who hears this and emails me at Martha runs the World G.. Dot Com gets free products from shave secret. That's Martha rents the world at G. Be the first email me. So you know. There are there are a lot of really dark. Aspects about all of this, and and there are memes about day drinking, but I'M A. Recovering Alcoholic, so they're not necessarily that funny, are they? Know I mean some of the? The dark side of this is you said you know people with day drinking There's a whole lot of mental stress that is going on a uncertainty You know suicides, domestic abuse, a number of factors that this confinement this element of unknown. You know acerbic they they make it worse and so when this comes around we we have to. Take that into consideration, too, as we are thinking through how where we're handling this and for people who are out there who have you know who might feel really stressed by this you know constant stress does again neurological facets to it it it takes our thinking process from our prefrontal Cortex, which is the the think part of our brain that is thinking and planning and. Looking at all options and variety of different things, and it focuses more back into the Magdala at our fight and flight of world, and so basically to into new terms we tend to really just focus on really short-term things fall back into our old habits. don't take a outside perspectives into view, and an actually it makes our our heart beat faster and our stress levels go up in a number of negative things, so the more that we can just try to relax as I said. Exercise me making sure you're trying to. To get contact with people another thing that you can do is just trying to do meditation or mindfulness. It doesn't have to even be you know you don't need to sit there and Omen I. It's just a moment of taking five or ten minutes out of your day to just try to just breathe and don't don't really think about anything or listen to some really relaxing calming music for yourself, those all help in reducing some of those stress loads. That's sounds like great advice. Thank you. How important is it to maintain I'm habits. And routines and day. Yeah, so it's a really important aspect of this is if you can maintain, your your habits that you had before handed. It lends some semblance of normalcy into your life and. Again a lot of the facets that we've learned about how humans. Is that we operate on a subconscious level. There's a lot of things that go on. That are below our. Awareness, many times, but they impact how we respond how we think how we feel and so habits just. Along with just giving you a sense of normalcy that you feel, and you are consciously aware of they also have this aspect of acting on your sub-conscious to say tell you tell your body. Tell your mind that. Hey, this is just like we always do this, so things can't be that bad. If things were bad, we wouldn't be doing the same thing over and over again like we've always done in back in times were that are normal and so it helps a lot in in just keeping your mind from overreacting and you know ruminating around all of those facets that go on. K.. I, little busy street and the fire. Trucks go down and the fire. Station is like two blocks away so. That's a always fun to to hear all the the background noise. Or giving these days, which is one of the other you know for people who are working one of the benefits of this is that we've. We've found with some of our conversations, and some of the work that others have done is that people actually feel like they can get to know some of their coworkers and various different people that are working with more because again. We're doing a lot of video. Video conferencing and different things from people's houses and say you're seeing their kids are their pets are where they live, and you never had that before. In some of the work situation that people add so those are those are. There are again. You have to sometimes look for the silver linings of this, but that's one of the silver linings is is getting to know people on a more personal and intimate re perspective. That's a really good point, too, and it's funny, too. Because the places at the where the a hair salons like like here who haven't opened up yet. Then all of our hair is growing out really crazy. Now, I've also I I i. don't understand all the about that, but I. Get it from my wife You know she talks about it. We'll see now, aren't you? Have now is a good reason to to to be bald. Right Oh, gosh, it's I. It's no different I. Get my you know. I shaved my head twice a week and I'm good to go all this barber. Talk I don't understand. Lucky you. GotTa look for the silver linings right exactly exactly so what are some healthy? What are some healthy things that you do to start your day. So you talked about habits, routines, and so Most of my days are am I. Try to start off with about ten minutes a contemplation now I will say..

"You have to have your buff and you can push a buff over your over your mouth and your nose. And that's the only time of the icy having to do it. I think the biggest area concern for trail races are the aid stations. I mean can we make this era where race companies trail companies find better ways to handle food and beverage at aid stations now? I'm not saying to US package foods because I think that's kind of a waste any way and a lot of the package. Food choices are just not very good but I think the open bowls of food were some guy who just put his hand in the Petroleum Jelly and then goes through the M. and M.'s is not the right way either. I'm not really sure what the answer is but I don't think if if you have a cutlass race I don't think that using Dick Cups for food is the is the answer either. Because you've gone couplets further beverages. So why would you use cups for the food? Because it doesn't make any sense to me may be that the volunteers need to give the person food or maybe using your cut your cup for the Food Rabi. Just you know. Volunteers giving you a handful of food or something like that. Maybe that's what it is. I think that is better than than using packaged foods so that you have to worry about the packaging for the foods that to me extra. Packaging sometimes gets left on the trails which is not cool. So maybe that's an idea and also to a Trish who's who's a faithful listener and my Sometimes my running buddy hi Trish. She suggested that there could be a discount for runners who don't want to partake in the aid. Stations are at least a in the food or the beverages. Maybe just the water if they could give a discount on registration fees maybe even just a small discount if they brought their own food. That would be kind of a thing to ask. I mean some racist give discounts. If you don't take a t-shirt shirt right so why not give a discounted few you bring your own food? Something to think about. Things are changing. So you know this could defray some of the costs for the host company right. I think in the area of masks use the mask at the beginning of your the mask or the face come face covering because I don't use mask. He's above so face covering yet the beginning of the race. Then you can just take that off when you're running and then if you're passing someone or someones passing you you can put it on at the take it off at the aid station you can put on and then at the end of the race you can. You can put it on. I certainly not going to wear it the whole time. And if your race requires it at the whole time. I'm not gonNA run your race. That's my personal choice. I just don't like it. It's uncomfortable to me. There are other things that we need to rethink that. I haven't gotten into because I just don't have any answers. Travel to races post race. Food restroom facilities all of these little things just going to have to be thought of and maybe done differently in the future and these are the things that we can all think about and probably like me. You've thought about this on your runs probably will continue to think about this on your runs and that's not a bad thing right all right. Well thank you so much.

She's podcast her. She has a really great podcast called breaking up with binge eating. So we're GonNa talk about something that a lot of people don't like to talk about. It's a little uncomfortable to talk about. We are going to get into binge eating. What is what is as opposed to over eating that kind of thing. We're to talk about that a little bit. We're going to talk about her podcast which is really good. And we're GONNA talk about her books that she has written and she also has an upcoming book and so with all that. I don't want to delay it any longer. So here is Georgie fear. Will you please welcome to the show? Georgie fear high charge. Hi How you doing Martha. I'm doing. Great how are you today? I'm great. I'm Greatest Beautiful Sunny Day here in Alberta Canada but we actually have a snowfall warning for this weekend despite being mid April so slow down free easy crazy so much snow in the Midwest and up where you are insane at our yes so now just so. Everybody knows a little bit about you. Can you tell US W- What led you to start the podcast. Sure so Marie-claire my co coach. An We've been doing a coaching program called breaking up with binge eating for I guess about three or four years now and so. Many people have asked for a podcast. They just really want this information so I guess we were holdouts for a long period time because you know we felt like we didn't know what we were doing. What are we don't belong podcasting? We're we're coaches and we finally kind of bit the bullet and decided we could learn how to do this. Just like anything else. We bought the microphones and learn how to write a podcast and started recording and editing. Them and we got started and at first. I wasn't sure it would take off and fly but it's just grown and grown and grown. I think we are above seventy thousand downloads. Now and we're both just really happy that that many people are interested in the help that we have to offer we'll just very clear and succinct and the episodes a short. You take one or one concept and you just spread it out into and it's almost like we're we're hearing you think in your mind but it's very Organized insistent glad I have given you the illusion. That my mind is organized. Well doesn't just like helping people and you know I try and think about the different people.

"You don't like him but when you're called funny and why not if you stay warm that way. Why not you know estimates easier for your team to bind you up. That's a good point that is a point. Keeps you warm and could find you why not I saw this Zion so one of the things? People do is on Ragnar Some people do costumes. People can vote on. Who had the best costume things like as a team and this year for the Zairean wine we're going to be the magical beasts so everybody has different one sees that are Unicorns and dragons and you know we even decided that dinosaurs are included in magical beasts. That's great we're not really clever people. There's a guy said always dressed like pineapple than I love finding different races. I'm like it's the pineapple guys. They have like these are. They're not onesies. But because it's like an outfit I don't know but it's got pineapples in it and I find them all the time in different raises then all of a sudden you feel like having a pineapple. Yes you have to be done. Marvel's comic sends the one time of his running chasing this guy dressed store and that was that was back and I got a picture with or at the end so lots of fun. How fun see I like? I like the attitude and I think that people can have a really fun time. If they're into that kind of thing if they want to do it as a group that they have friends they want if they want to travel somewhere and have a good vacation. It's a great great idea. And Yeah and what I'll do is on the website. I'll have the information for regna races. And they go and they can check it out so you and I'm going to have a link for a video on Youtube Z. Fun It's video of. It's an animated video of a ragnar person who does Wagner's talking to someone who doesn't do rag news so I'm GonNa ask you in it. What what is the best question that you've had from someone who doesn't do all my goodness Half question I most people just want to know why on Earth we do it you know. It's like they just like in the video when she's like limited this straight you're gonNA run two hundred miles for a t shirt and a metal like you know it's hard to describe to somebody who hasn't done Especially people who don't run at all. How much fun it is. It doesn't sound like fun when you try to describe it to someone and I maybe at four o'clock in the morning it's not that much fun but when you get done and you as a team run together under those arches and they announced your team name in your coming down. I mean I don't know this to accomplish something as a a team They you the Hard is the best feeling and like Wagner. Says is not crazy. We're all doing it. So that's true and that bat really is the point to do something together as a team as as friends add to just go out and have at amazing time. That is the best reasons that I can think to do it. Absolutely I wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun. Of course why. Why do something? If it's not fun Negli- exactly I mean we. We have to work already. We're not gonNA spend our off time doing things that aren't fun right right. Well thank you so much for joining me. I really appreciate all the information you've given and it's given us a lot of insight into regna races. I wish you the best of luck in your next race and I know you're gonNa tell me all about it and I hope -solutely and yeah help people try it is it is. It is a fun thing to do. I saw promise it spun and then give me the opportunity. I always enjoy talking to you. And if you do a ragner and you see a nor will that's an it? Yes ninety nine percent chance. It's probably me all right. We'll talk soon. Take Care Bye Martha. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you being on my show. It's really a pleasure talking to you. Gave us so much.

Welcome back this is the second part of episode fifty nine. I just had a really fun race this morning. It reminded me why I run in the first place. Yeah I have a confession to make. I have gotten into a Rut. My hip has gotten me down. I really had the blues. The BLIGH'S I don't know what to call it. Running was just. It didn't feel fun. I just wasn't excited about it anymore. Thrilled about it because I go out and sometimes it really hurt sometimes it. Kinda SORTA hurt very rarely. It didn't hurt it all so I wasn't sure what I was going to get. I just had no desire to go to the gym to do anything like that. Even eat right so I was going back so I started getting back into my battle habits which is not good at my age. I need to stick to healthy diet all the time to exercise and to do everything properly or else. It's not gonna be a good thing so I'm really happy. I did the Chinatown. Ymca San Francisco Five K. This morning and they just started adding a metal gye love. They used to give out this neat little cloth lunch bags full of goodies and stuff and a cotton t shirt but they never gave out of metal so this was the first year I said. Okay I'll do it again. I had done a couple years. Say said all right. I'll do it this year so I think I'm going to do it. Keep doing it because it was really fun. I mean it just it. It's three miles so a did pretty good now. He's a little slower than usual. Because let's face it. I am slower than usual with like with my physical stuff. I am not as fast as I used to be. An I'm not in shape. I used to be that will change. I just talked to myself. This whole time Saint L. Right snap out of it. Are you gotta get big? Get back into the swing of things get your your mind back into it and what I did during my during my racist I went back and listen to my episode. So you're in a Rut. I listened to my own advice. How many times do we give advice to others? But we don't listen to it ourselves. That old saying Dr healed by self. I am healing myself with my own words so I went back and listen to it and it's not that advice if you haven't heard it. I don't know I forgot one episode number. It is but it's the one so you're in a Rut. I give lots of suggestions about what to do when you get into a restaurant or not feeling that with running and it really helped me. I have my own episode. Helped me okay so it was? It's a really fun little race and you may not do road races anymore. If you're trail runner or if you're a road runner you may only like the real fancy glitzy national races or you may be snooty about it but I'd say Y- come down off your high horse and look for little local races the help your community. I love my why I have belonged to the Chinatown. Ymca for probably over ten years longtime I love it. It's a great facility. It's pretty modern as far as a hobby. Keep up the equipment and everything. It's clean got an amazing pool. The Pool's outstanding. Everything's kept nice and sparkly clean. The staff is friendly and welcoming in. It's very much a family atmosphere. So you never have the the hot shots in the muscle heads or any of those people that you have in other places I mean. Yeah there's there's some problems either. There's a lot of kids and sometimes they don't put the equipment back in the right places but it always happens. This staff takes care of it right away but other than other than that. I mean. It's it's not. It's not the cheapest places around. It's I mean it's not expensive but it's not really inexpensive for a really good bargain but it's worth it the money that you give them. They do a lot of work in the community. They help out a lot of families lot of after school programs. Let's face the San Francisco's real expensive city living and if you have a family and you have a lot of people living with you need for your kids and then you have mom and dad and you'll make a ton of money how you can live in this town. We probably live in a one bedroom or a studio like I do. But you squeeze a whole bunch of people in there. That's hard to live in. So what they do is that they offer after school programs for the kids. They have lunchtime programs for the seniors. They've lots and lots of classes. If you're a member you and you don't make a certain amount of money you get a discounted rate and the seniors give a real discount rate too so they have all kinds of programs for them and a lot of people come over. Here is new immigrants especially in Chinatown in your from China so they give them a lot of counseling. How how to get by in San Francisco and it's really really good facility for everyone who lives in San Francisco. It's it's just it's great. I Love Them. Anyway that's enough free advertising for them. What they do before the race is that they have they have like a lion and a dragon. Come out and the Chinese Landon Titans Dragon and they dance in front and they give their blessing them and they have much of dancers in traditional Chinese costumes. It's really cool. And then they have the firecracker Scott to discover away all the demons and to give wish good luck brawl runners walkers and the race starts and they have a five to ten K. And most people do the five gay. There's real real amazing runners do the ten K. And there's some really fast runners at it was really fun. I swear I think I think I spent most of the time surrounded by kids who were who were going at the same pace as I was and there were some of them that well. I'll get there but it starts grant street right in Chinatown and you start and it's all empty so we get all grant to ourselves so we're running through Chinatown. We had the street to ourselves and turns up and then it goes up to stockton and then it goes through North Beach and again. We have the street mostly to ourselves pass. Everyone at mom was waiting for them to open for their brunch and then goes down through to obey street and then it goes around to the mark darrow and then it goes through the financial to California up courtesy. And then you're done. And the the ten k they do that twice actually the first they go up to grant and then they go around and then they finish but anyway they do the circle twice. Most of that was surrounded by these kids. And the kids are running walking and kids will sprint. And then the lock. And then the walking sprinting in the walk and a couple of the kids seem like they had lost their friends or or their parents or something. They looked a little forlorn. And and you know little worried and I said one of the kid. You're doing great. You're fine and she smiled and then she felt better one of the kid and I said you okay and he goes. Yeah Yeah I'm okay. You know. And then he smiled. So it's okay. I don't want them to feel bad or or feel worried or anything is there. They're all with us. We're going to take care them and make sure that they that they're all right one of these these to these young young ladies and I think they were early teens one of them I had seen. She had had tire shoe like five times and she cheap shoes. I don't care okay. A. Finishes then. I'm going to go into mini rant. So the poor thing she had then the right at the end. We're all going as fast as again is pretty and she fell and I felt really bad for her. She wasn't hurt so someone came right away to care for and they got her out and she was okay just a little shook up but she had on a pair of shoes from that big a shoe store on the corner right by Union Square. Who has all the advertisements? Yeah I'M NOT GONNA say their name no free advertising here anyway so. Get yourself a good pair of shoes. I don't care if they plaster their name all over the place that they have big athletes if they have the highest technology. I don't care get good running shoes if you can't afford them look for them on sale or something but get decent running shoes just to go out there and the shoes that you're in every day that's not gonNa work especially if you're shoelaces keep coming tied. That's really a safety issue when you're running and that was a perfect example of that. I feel really bad for her and I hope she's Ok but really get yourself if you want to really do some running a good walking. Get yourself some good shoes. I would imagine that a lot of these people. This is only. This is the only big race they do every year. And they do it and then it's done and then go on and do their own thing but if you want to get more into it. The only really big purchase unique. Make her shoes. And that's the really most important thing buying shoes that are that fit your feet. Don't buy because the brand you see advertised by because it's your feet and go back to my beginning running episode and a check on there and I'll probably do an update at one of that in the next few months I'll update that do another one. And they had a medal. This is the first year. They've had a medal so the metals really pretty. I really like it. And it was. And they gave away all kinds of goodies. And it's just a fun race. It doesn't cost that much at the money. Goes to good cause so even if you don't like to road races or you say now. I'm not into winter. I only trail running or something if there is a local race the benefits your community. There's no harm in going out and doing a five K. takes less than hour. You obviously and you're done and you've done a good thing and why not okay. I want to thank our new patron patron. Victor Vargas thank you so much for signing up. I really appreciate it and if you to went to be a Patriot. Patron just go to the website. Martha runs a world DOT COM and sign up. It just cost a dollar a month.

"In this episode talk about the coastal trail runs winter race at the headlands and whole thirty. So don't go anywhere. Welcome to Martha runs a world. A podcast with a new take on running fitness and 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. Ever have one of those mornings where nothing goes right? You plan to have a run you plan to go out for your run and everything goes wrong. It's already nine o'clock and I haven't stepped out the door yet. I've been on tech support for an hour. Well it'll be late run today so it is what it is. Okay our you. I'm laughing so it's not that bad. It's okay I'm glad you're with me today. Thank you so much for joining me. I don't talk enough about who I am and why I even have a show a renting show. I am a runner. I've been running for many years for a few years. It was off and on running when I could fit it in the last bunch of years. I've been running pretty regularly. I'm not a fast runner. You're certainly not going to see me at the top. Of course you're not going to see me. One of the first runners in I am what they call back the pack Renner. Yes I am slow. I'm not shamed of it. I am who I am. I won't ever be a really fast runner again. When I was younger. I was pretty fast. I could maintain nine-minute miles. Yeah I could do that but it's been a long time since I've been able to do that and that that I was mostly road runner. I didn't even realize that they were trail runs trail races. I've never heard of an ultra race. I'd never heard of those distances. I thought people who ran marathons were crazy. Fifty milers what is that and then I learned all about that later on and I wanted to try it and I did a few now. I'm happy if I can do a ten K. Or half and that's all right. I do what I can and hopefully I'll be able to do more as time goes along. No one should be ashamed of whatever distance? They WANNA do whether it be a five K. ten K. Half Marathon or longer and no one should be shamed they don't WanNa race at all. They just want to go out and run for the fun of it. Take the dog out for a couple of miles. That's great they WANNA walk. That's fine to do what you want. Don't do what other people think you should do. And don't let anyone else shame you into feeling bad. You do what you want to do. We're moving right. And that's the important part and also if you can stand an hour on tech support you're a warrior. I think I think the pioneers in the eighteen hundreds had it easier. I don't know is harder going across the country in a covered wagon or spending an hour tech support. I'm joking I'm joking. Tech support is way harder. I had a really fun race last weekend. I ran the five mile distance of the Golden Gate..

"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.

"martha " Discussed on Martha Runs the World Podcast
"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.
