"A WB Geo news production in collaboration with W, N Y C and w H Y Y. You got a question for the governor, Collins said. 8446779283 or send us your questions on Twitter or Facebook. With the hashtag Ask of Murphy. Nancy Solomon, and we're live with Governor Phil Murphy. I have one more covert question. And then let's hit some other subjects. But so your Republican challenger in the re election this year has criticized you for supporting vaccine passports. So what's being discussed? Exactly What would this passport be? And how would it work And where do you stand on them? Yea or Nay? I was not aware that he criticized it. And I frankly don't spend a minute of my day worrying about what? What he says or thinks that the moment I'm focused on trying to get the stamp pandemic. Behind us, Um And by the way, based on what you've the way you've described it it to miss complete mischaracterization of one. I've said about this. I've been asked to about this and I said I but open minded. That's what I said. But I've said my concern and this by the way, Nancy gets back to tow. You know, Georgia voting laws? Um, government issued passports, a government shoot. Pardon me. ID's. Um, have historically Um Worked against the interests of black and brown communities in the evidence is, you know, overwhelming and I worry if if we go back to our conversation of 10 minutes ago, Where we are on equity, and we're not there yet. You know, that's a that's a great example of this would be get another government issued. I d that we would discriminate. But what even without intentionally doing it? Against black and brown communities. So that is a serious concern. If I felt that we had achieved our equity goals Um and we, you know, we punched at the weight of all of the communities in our state. Might have a different opinion on that. I also will say this. I think we need federal leadership on something like this. This can't be in my opinion. New Jersey does one thing with the passport. New York does another Connecticut does yet a different way. I think we need a federal system tonight. Can I point a personal privilege? Thanks. The damn Brian uncovered the phone number and the website for the Woman, Marie in East Orange, right, So she's a small landlord. This is as much for rent people who are renting or small landlords. Website is NJ dot gov slash d c a That stuff at the Department of Community Affairs and the phone number 6094904550609. 4904550. Thanks for Let me hit that when that was, of course about, um, evictions and renters not paying and that there's help for landlords to get them through this period. I've wondered why there hasn't been more discussion about Property tax relief in the short term. I mean, you know, we talk about property tax relief, all that you know you're in in year out. But why not relieve land lords of the property tax bill, which is a huge part of their expense. Yeah, I mean, I I will say this and this is a general comment. Not specific to the, um question of property taxes, and by the way, our budgets got a ton of property tax. Relief in it. We've made a lot of progress, but we still have alone long way to go given the levels that we inherited. But I would just say this that we don't yet have guidance on how to spend the American rescue plan money. But if we have latitude on things like that, once we do get the guidance from the feds. I would be very much open minded to that. And remember that we've got moratoriums and or holidays on Insurance payments, Mortgage payments rent. Ah, whole range of things on that would be, you know, consistent with our overall mindset s Oh, well, let's see if we get some Potential path through the federal support. Okay. We have Joe Hernandez watching Social media. Joe, What do you have for us? Sure we're getting some questions about the ongoing covert restrictions. Here's one from Samara and fan would, she says. Medical adult day programs are still unable to open in New Jersey. Our seniors are in need of socialization, supervision and medical oversight and have been struggling caregivers need respite and have to return to work. Governor. What do you say regarding services for those in this community? I mean, this is one that we have heard a lot. Is it tomorrow? Tomorrow. Tomorrow. Sam Woods. So tomorrow I'll get someone from the department of Human Services, um, to follow up. With you, Um You know with this is one that is been Raised regularly and for good reason. I mean, you're trying to balance I mentioned this earlier in the questions. From Beth from Asbury Park. You're trying to balance physical health. And literally not kill somebody. Particularly vulnerable communities on the one hand with the overwhelming mental health. Train. Uh, That not only the individual in that community may have, but they're family members. We have begun to take steps and I think you know Judy has spoken to this of light. We have begun to open up. Programs like this and access to programs like this. But I don't want to over over state that and make a mistake in terms of the confidence level that I give tomorrow, So I will have somebody senior in the team follow up. But clearly is the numbers get better. Way. Look at this by region that allows us without question, not just open up things like restaurants or stadiums, but to rent open up programs for vulnerable. Populations without question. Okay. We have lots of callers waiting to get their questions to you. So let's go directly to Theroux from South Brunswick with a question for the governor. I don't know. It could be make. Thanks for taking quote my pleasure. So, as you know, I was hearing there's a lot of variants. Of course, coming from countries like India and you just being one of those. Populous states. A lot of immigrants are there from India, and travel is not going to addicted. Are there any plans for your government in case the Situation changes you, You know we can start Looking for measures so because I see we're letting out the guard down the decent announcements. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So what would that do? We need to spend a better on this..

She cries out because she missed a little girl and the Knicks time they saw each other was on on film with me.

"I don't know if this is a culture thing but we've had some pretty good hit the greatest try like there's you guys team robots and his partner Tim now Tim mcdonagh Mattie giant Laura. That's right like whereas you sorry funny. When you do your research toppin Sam would interview and of course you've got all these interviews but the Knicks video afterwards is clearly some recommendation about top twenty U._S. Bachelor Debacle Goodbye? I think the I think the stock right in America the producer said to me it's about one in twenty and we have three seven or something so it is it is crazy and his there's going to be something cultural that either. They set it up the producer. It's bound to file and you draw broadcasting. Here is a lot more on the lawns of way would love this transpire. Well yes whereas I think. The casting in America is if this is a train wreck with lots of us. We have done coach very well so I think they have slightly different agendas from day one what's being the most I was looking back at interviews that you have done are going to say the one on Hamish and Andy where Hamish pretended that's hilarious. I love it. What has been the most interesting interview you've done thus far? That's a great question. Look up actually quite like McVeigh's tops because you can talk for longer engine guy because the story has simony liars and model off as before I really do I think all ride sort of laid to that to you know to that to that. Jump moment of Armand Beginning told being selected the bachelor and I didn't even know what it was. I had applaud because a member of the G._M.. Had recommended that I did cy Kelly Trot would never seen an episode gone through this crazy interview process from Skopje in view front indies scope interviews to bang flying to Sydney in front of a panel with the camera on and in about three crazy weeks literally gone from what whatever I'm as well have a look at this thing to being told to pack my life out moved to Sydney and for the next sixteen week she got to leaving leaving Sydney and you're not allowed to tell anyone where you are and also I haven't really thought these three you know this is but I had that moment where I went to myself and I have said this before. If I didn't do it I would have wandered what what if forever and I was like. I don't think I do that. I will not knowing what that's going to be in the season before me was a G- Arco Bleich and it was a bit of a disaster you know he was in inverted Commas Astrid try these nice heightened man and all this kind of stuff you kind of have a hiding to nothing in this thing. I don't know if I want to do it. Maybe maybe it's not what I thought it was going to be but I just have to see an imagine if I hadn't done it so I definitely think oh those the trials and tribulations and ups and downs in business law impersonal off before that point had led me to get there and it was just meant to bay now if we think about Sam would and would shed the brand rant twenty-eight by Sam. There's a lot the expense of this business today is huge like I think the people really get a grasp similar because assistant up it's sort of like when I interviewed one of the Gills from kick. It's the same thing you don't realize how big gun amazing things go yeah like how big the audience is that you have and the people that use that on a on a weekly basis yeah. They don't typically and that's it's you know. I guess that's because if you doing your job willingness spice. It's not a bad year. You're not walk around interviews like this is probably more appropriate. Talk about it but often do twenty eight to have as many members as possible in fact never even called the members there twenty Ida's their family. That's what we go them. Audrey twenty to help as many people as I can but very very few people realize the saws every now and then we talk about how many people have helped because it adds credibility but very few people realize we now have seventeen fulltime staff. One hundred sixty thousand people have done the program in three and a half if years <hes> you know it's it's gone crazy. You know three years ago it was million to other people and now we've got this full office of content creators and graphic design and social media experts and tick team with APP developers web developers and all that marketing guys and everything's everything's in house which you know this really taught knit group that really passionate people customer service team that would ever call him that that Sam's crew in the united by living brave all the success stories that the twenty eight is a going through and they there to help them in any which way that can cause getting in shape is a really really individual journey and yes. She can have an APP that he's super super intelligent and can provide a customized experience but the more personalized you can make that with great staff around at the better the experience is going to be what does your day look collect the moment in the office every day. I mean one of the things that are definitely think. SIP rights may from other successful online programs is I'm not just the face of it. I'm not just the go guys and does the Friday shoots and ads are leaving bray that you know we absolutely strive to make the program bid at every single wake and there's no one that can give better insight into how that can happen than me so I wanna be there and <hes> so the offices just end the ride from my G._M.. And from my house and go into the office every day with my dog Hendrix my Labrador and he sleeps on my desk and I work with the team creating content doing cooking segments doing fitness segments going home with the video to my house with a videographer and creating when you work at content <hes> interviewing you experts that can perhaps Ed something an extra layer of <hes> expertise to the program <hes> getting on T._v.. Getting on ready I sharing stories talking about it. You know whatever ever is the best use of my time for that business. That's what I do and I'm really liking two incredible young gods that helped run the widget Britain Jisr to brilliant young China's who <hes> you know going they moist voiced is to work out or I work from home iconic combine the two by the <hes> but the email me or ring me if I need anything for me but you know they do a great job of running that place and so the Office for the Twenty by Sam would tame is not at the woodshed now separate so well yeah it's just three kilometers down the road but yeah I would just <hes> just down there and brought in above a great keffer cheese well because that that you don't have any any other businesses on top of that got purchased by an amazing boy key minimizing franchisee and she's carrying the torch beautifully just say guy from Strength Strength Kepa Kepa very close on it without trading NATO's because it's not mine anymore but obviously after ten really really beautiful years I'll watch it really closely and yeah I just <hes> the woodshed and twenty item lobbies when it comes to the overarching strategy here what is how do you view this thing. This twenty-eight boss Sam would program where where does it go from here. I'll look I I honestly I feel like we're just scratching the surface and the reason for that ease people are just becoming a lot more aware of how good online training and nutrition convey and but you know it's kind of this whole netflixing technology even when way launched in Twenty fifteen was you streaming spades of V._D._i.. Workouts workouts and Oh yeah APP tech. It's just changed so much in three short years that it's like personal training once upon a time he didn't do. You didn't say personal China these days. Oh my God look at the results you can get training at home with you. Try and tie for video work out awesome recipes rue. Tom Support live workouts in the technology keeps improving literally month-on-month which means you program can get better but it also paper paper went even people who would say to me quite frequently threes ago Oh yeah senior programs him but I live in Sydney my kids online and that I needed to be explained to them. That was an asphalt that was just it was a pretty new concept. Owns it now they get it. You know it's like if you think of the top two or three on fitness programs in the country you think of us and you know it's now not what he's a fitness program. It's what's the Rock Program on for me yeah and then he's true sure I've literally gone through this process in Las Waco's and learning more about I've gotten I've gotten really into sort of for while. I was just doing whites. Go very very bold with it but I find that what you guys do. There's another one free legs but I find relics yeah but I feel like a lot of that. American stuff is I think the advantage that you guys kick and a ninety sweat have is the personal element to it. Something you've learned through this whole process that scaling of a China a system has been possible through this mobile app you know through a mobile APP and you can integrate elements of yourself self so when people who side you in Sydney Sam I really wanted to try and do it does feel like you are training with you and you're in this little hub Maya Pez Sam Cam every day. Oh I do real time video. It's about twenty years so this morning I was walking Hendrix in the pack and I sent the might of on the listening to issue on the radio and came up about <hes> the stats on Childhood in activity and that these days is the average child sit still for eleven hours a day of which five and a half or a pit iron scranton nosy with Maki's SPEC around. This is something that might my us per cup so this morning's video was mums and Dads that are on my program. Let's let's drag those averages down starting this weekend. You know that was this morning's message but at absolutely I mean I know what I'm good at and on now I was brilliant face to face China but I could only see ten people die. Hi Tops can now impact these people's lives get into their homes get into their land rooms in the tens of thousands every morning you not such a path with thing and <hes> yeah you know I look at I look at cuyler and I look at Suis <unk> cuyler and key can <hes> some of the other good runs and are just think what a brilliant wide it'd be out of spend your time and help people. Are you know we're all fighting. The good fought yeah. It's it's definitely you can see that as well just a thing a lot of the marketing that you guys do and a lot of these other APPs to exceptionally well is the engagement of the community and showing results showing the improvement mindset the people have I've.

Hey Young semi and he knew that I loved the working at Harper's but I had grand ambitions to have my own shop whether some an each that needed to be scratched or something I just need to prove to myself not really sure about when you're a subcontract you a few lock.

Tom Burgess was each time this young boy who might listen to this podcast at some stage he's probably now very very successful twenty two or twenty three year old boy but hey came into me remembered him into mean lean lovely lady she still trying to the woodshed today and she said Oh lovey to do some work we tal- money's running ability and speed aiden agility and he needs to lose a bit of white and gain some confidence. All this kind of stuff and I said in conference had sort of his e short and Tom. It's outerwear we told him and it was like a big brother relationship. You know my job was to they get you to enjoy movement. See some results but most importantly have fun and I <hes> very quickly developed <hes> by accident really you're a reputation as the God that try and kids and Tana's proteges wanted to be the knicks number one in the world or kids who wanted to be drafted or kids at needed to lose weight or kids might school cross country team before a new house doing naughty appointments awake and thirty or forty them with kids and kids were being brought Audet school at mid-day one o'clock two o'clock three o'clock considerably mess sauntering destroy their parents to say for now not not by design or mine systems this during the benefit thome gets gets for you in an hour far outweighs that extra massless and our extra to walk out if he toll up beaming the changes that you have helped my son or daughter make over the last six months him. It's a Tim O'Brien a. for us. I would say Tom. Do you want to Cape saying him. I have to keep saying salmon you know I was I was just friends with them. All these great group beautiful kids and so I thought process was I love training. Kids love trying out says but wise they nothing for kids and his nothing for kids because it's a stupid business idea or is there nothing for kids because it's you know where ahead of time you know what is it so we do it in reading really really nine but Craig had fight in May in Christ. I always said to Craig. This is what I WANNA do. I want to open a strays. I advocate Jim and he said are well if you do that. Let's do it together because I don't want to lose you. INOSITOL now Kinda WanNa do it by myself. Said Seventy thirty your seventy on thirty. I'll help you with a bit of money to get it going and bit of business gardens because it can be caught scary and so why we went we hard I the six hundred square made a garage on the corner of marriage reddin Hampton straight in Broughton and we got for cheap rent because it was only available for two and a half years before we're GONNA tear it down and build apartments. which is you know it would have been one hundred twenty thousand dollars a year? I think we're gonNA fifty or something and we dicked it out with running tracks and basketball hoops and trampolines and little box and little rose and boxing bags and Australia's first advocates Jim Gecko the kids fitness was bone and it went bananas. We had four hundred kids enrolled. We did after school programs with your birthday parties. We did <hes> schooling cushion school excursions. We did holiday programs. It was amazing mining and waited kids from five to teenagers and then junior Gecko was born. We're doing three to five year old development programs with tunnels and ramps and stays and I'm an auto loved kids and the office was even more than it was just you know it was green and purple and orange and I drive a little cow look like a Little Oscar van Gecko Plaza live on throws Matt absolutely mad but I was so passionate about that it I just think that passion conned of broad at success yes <hes> yeah it was that it was it was fun. Tom's when you think about that time and what you applied into the the the twenty eight by Sam and woodshed and I'm limbaugh what stands out is the most intriguing lesson so the the I mean they're all such they're all such different businesses. The GECKO was brilliant. <hes> and I loved every second of it into. We tried to expand it. That's where we that's where we faced challenges. If always which I guess when you look at Twenty by Sam would that's the difference United Twenty. I allows me to be me still with that. Crazy passion and enthusiasm <hes> and draw live about three technology differently wasn't Iran back in two thousand and seeks to do. It's tens two thousand people rather than just hundreds of kids yeah so I it's. It's a timing thing it's I. You know that that's just <hes> that's I guess how old kind of transpired fifteen years later but way we tried lots of different ways to expand GEICO. I've attain knees that wasn't it wasn't a two year thing the first three years we had just one and we had this great reputation as the kids fitness people and so we were getting <hes> approached by other gyms headed you do it do it so we put a law since pack together which the King of licensing in gyms as lays meals you pump classes you say classes all this kind of stuff so we kind of looked at what they did. This is a bit more choreographed into music from us being close to whatever for kids you can't have that Siamese structure because it needs to be this fray style <hes> that need some structure but kids need to be keys and into learned through doing and they're not GonNa follow a corrupt class and we didn't want to be a dance program Graham sorry way created little circuits and Ray Rice's and functional movement and Games and then there was a birthday party template and all this kind of stuff and we lost since to that so existing gyms and I think we we have that licensing thirty five or forty gyms around Australia and the same thing some did really well forever but the challenge was way were we were pitching it to the Gemina or whoever the the big boss in China or whatever it was and I sort is being these great white feel a niche great. They were helping kids. Get active great that kids have got so many guy while their parents work at whatever it might be but they didn't have the same passion that I had so guy back on a book a flight to add light down visit one of the gyms that had lost since and six months ago as they all the staff of pumped and I did all the training and hundred ten back Anita Fund the equipment it busted up and shoved in the corner the programs not being followed terribly diligently and the same China's that are wants Mitt who awesome no longer work there and so it had gone to the Knicks guys who just went Oh. You can't today's kind of things with the kids so yeah it sort of seems like during this period yeah what you've learned was the biggest thing is timing but also persistence like you've just gotTa keep heap pushing the industry the thing that will eventually fit you well that makes sense. Yes dominated a believing that <hes> in principle I think I think I was probably be so stubborn Albany and be determined and I had the blink zone you know way way they went into franchising path which is much more successful but way way persisted with the licensing concept for probably four years and and that wasn't shape lots buying bulk equipment packs marketing hiring staff so way were any money that these one GEICO's in it was making was nowhere near enough enough to facilitate the growth my grand plans of gripes. I borrowed money owing to business resentment GEICO. Probably I'd may not really speak about this close to a million dollars of debt by the time I eventually sold that business breath now. Some people might say your fool when you mess regret that Saimaa watch a- dunked because I absolutely stand by that there is no way twenty would be anywhere near as successful as it has been the woodshed would be anywhere near as good as it is <hes> without those lessons learnt from Geico and you know I was blindly passionate and an persistent as you said but probably too much you know there are probably some really big red flags that I should have seen earlier that I refused to say auto. I'd be so optimistic and are members meeting. My business partner use an invest but very hands on brilliant guy and. And I used to try and his son who was up and coming tennis player and that's how we met and he loved what are done within new and we developed this beautiful friendship and enemies off the mice lovely people and they said Sam if you want to expand this thing way believing you will invest and so I I'm not paying the banks back two million dollars. I'm paying him back to me then does because I'm a man of my word but <hes> thanks the money hey you know what what an amazing and it was probably totally a trap because when you do get the money like that you don't stop because you just like another one hundred thousand dollars I think we'll be able to do this and we didn't quite get there but another one hundred thousand dollars and I think we ought to do this. You know it was it was pretty pretty slippery slope but <hes> yeah I definitely learned a lot that has helped me to where I am. Now I think if you consider as well the other key element was although is really way you meant your partner today on the Bachelor. I feel like going going on the bachelor because you said it yourself prient you had one hundred fifty followers on instagram and not even yeah you and you've now you do the rounds of morning TV in media as a personality who you has insight on fitness and health and I think this period of time is where you sort of learnt to build that audience. What do you think about <hes> Jemaine through the bachelor yeah through through through doing the bachelor? The Bachelor was the hottest thing I've ever done and the best thing I've ever done island more about myself in thirteen weeks not perhaps would have in my life really ability to talk about your feelings to internalize to <hes> the confidence and the it's hard you know you're filming for six days a week four nine fifteen hours die you lose all your autonomy. It's the T._v.'s are pretty crazy. Well particularly when you know you're not a star U._R._I.. Someone that's been picked. You become really really well known but you're not a famous actor. They should be so lucky to have you know even though I was the bachelor you know you don't get paid very much in your your really you know. I always want you to break because I don't Mind Great T._V.. You know it's kind of like the the best way is romance to one end of the spectrum or meltdown at the other end of the spectrum so let's push these to the limits and see what comes out now for me. The best thing ever was snatched was on that show and who knows what would have happened if she wasn't but I fell in love with and I kept way Pinch Esso's. My Dad laughs about it. My best friends laugh about it their own what Immoral Weld D._R.. On a show like that and actually out of twenty goes ooh one of them is that girl that you're meant to be with and three and a half years later you married and heavy third child.

That was my first job always a dish pig so eloquently put <hes> for him for the next four years while I was in doing years no one to twelve at school and I loved every second of it and I mean the the message there is that's just my daddy's he didn't WanNa give me the easy way I I always thought will often thought growing up how unfair it was. How hard Dunbar was how hard he was and absolutely thank him for it everyday now because there is no why we are would have most of the things I have now if it wasn't for that toughness in that perspective that he told me in my younger years yeah? I think it's a similar thing the my dad gave me it's not it's not so much toughness. It's just a dose of reality is yeah. Totally I mean you need to understand the value of money in the end.

It's a five degrade I in my friends who are in Hawaii in Greek. All those kind of stuff and you need to say look. You've got to have a bit of perspective. We are so fortunate and such like you. People are so many people they less fortunate less fortunate than us. Let's get caught up with the one percent of one percent that happened to be in Europe. are Y or something like that. We have an amazing often. We you need to appreciate it and really begun bang show we drill that hyme because neither of US came from a lot we went hard done by but we had to appreciate the value of money and <hes> you know work for work work at work. I remember when I was eighteen. You know I had sanderling payments coming in zero. Manny wasn't sure where my rent was gonna come from and you know I really had to Sorta Hasso and it was it wasn't until I really become a personal trainer in a fist at making some half decent money for the festival off that it oh chronically you said in a car of the interview was with the woman about Philip was training kids Iran but <hes> yeah there was something there where you spoke about how basically life does change when you have kids system that point about applying it to you know to Av as well applying lessons to and I think it's interesting that you would. It's clear in the last few years that perspective about family has changed you as an individual from worrying about the other people what they think to just what your kids think about you so like I'm curious then if that is in your mind when you become a parent on that sign that you know Lauren I may have of the next few years is how do you principally applied like how do you. How do you make sure that they've got that perspective? <hes> Yes for me. I think the context of how I answered that question you're referring to it would have been into is the first is what we're talking about with eve and that Eddie's now having understanding Malaysia's lighter about why my dad was the way that he was and almost as run says I can't believe tended to my parents but it's true. It's true and you know I have. I've even say offset to my dad audio. Let these things Guy Bobby that acknowledging the code by Dad. I've said I now realize the challenges that you faced the you know how hard we made it for you and I now have those challenges myself and I have such should different appreciation of it and it wasn't an apology but I think that Acknowledgement Winter Long Way and my dad appreciated but so so as to fall so that we the I've been thrown in the deep deep in the because I went from not having any kids to having a ten year old navy fourteen say she was nearly eleven and three and a half years later here we are and she's now a teenager and tuning into a young one woman so you don't really have a an apprenticeship. I guess you really have to kind of of a lot on Snezana a lot. WHO's incredible mom but you know you've got to get up to speed really really fast and pick that up and then with little wheel like coming along in another baby? Doing I think you know to to extra Monday. <hes> that's given me a complete different perspective on Waffen what's really important in life because I've been a bit of a workaholic and Harley ambitious and I definitely think powder that spanned good because it's kept me driven me accountable and my I haven't really <hes> sort of Davy added for my goals too much and all that kind of stuff but then when you have kids you very quickly realizes for maybe Henry Eli boy that both thought maybe it's just what's really important in life and that these material things and the money in the success and all this other stuff really just piles into insignificance or now. It's a clay shy but I don't think I got that until not really got that is listened to pay will say that always listen to the to the Richard Bransons and these guys I look when you don't chase the money money will come home and you didn't go as if to say Richard though you billions of dollars you. Baby cynical and then you have this lot <unk> lightning bolt moment that it's like you know what that actually is true and you need. You almost need something in your life that you that you love Saimaa. I'm much more than it just changes your perspective and because always single and didn't have kids it was work work work work work and in and unhealthy Y. I definitely don't think I had a really well rounded perspective particularly compared to how do now yeah and I'm yeah that would have happened very very quickly. As what we do is gone from from that to okay. Now I have this partner you're engaged getting engaged and a ten year old on on the why I guess how long was that time between you guys leaving the Bachelor and then moving essentially from Perth to two so it was about a year it was it was four months of cloak and dagger a not to tell anyone who won the show because there's that delay between filming and win it goes to air that was really challenging were flying station onto seed neon strange plot patterns and driving us off to these the obscure a billion bays and they're cast watson underground cowpox in case the Paparazzi were following us and it was like a Jason Bowen Film and we'd spend thirty six hours with each other and then they'd fly us.

"When I started but for me it was about running for my whole life spans much of my life span as possibly can because I just loved run <hes> and I had a certain number of competitive years? I felt like I didn't and have to prove myself. If I was able to get back to competition that's great but that wasn't my primary driving back your I think when you look at most competitive runners you've said there's a lot of collegiate runners that for whatever reason they get out of it but but for a lot of they pushed really hard and they do have these injuries I listened to a great podcast with Ryan Hall was last week and you talked about the just the total body stress that it takes and he talked about you know having foot pain that changed his gate and he was never quite the same so people have to really evaluate where it is that they wanNA head in whether at <hes> and if you're just trying to be good for year or two than by all means you know just though as far as you can I and I hope that works out but for folks eventually our bodies or are going to rebel I mean in I shouldn't say rebel our bodies will do a lot to support us in compensate for a long time in their amazing <hes>. They're amazing things. Things but at some point we wanna be a little bit more to with so listening to okay. Why is that area always tight you know and is my gate different now? Maybe than it was a few years ago. I think it's interesting everybody that I've interviewed for moving deliver. It seems that if they get beyond thirty to thirty five they start to say you know the most important thing is not necessarily the competition although I like it but I wanna do fill in your favorite activity whether as running whether it's biking whether it's weightlifting whether it's crossed it whatever's I wanna be able to do this. The rest of my life and I don't know if that's eight maturity thing or as you said had had some competition. I've enjoyed it but I realized is it's the whole process that I like not getting the free t shirt in the metal right and I think when you're a teenager in probably in your twenties you think fifties old old and then so as you somewhere in your thirties you start to understand these not old. I'm like it's not going to be that long. I'll be fifty. There's there's life after forty fifty sixty so <hes> I think it is a natural evolution for people to start to want to pay more attention to their body in you know I got away with a lot of bad habits for a long time and not necessarily on purpose a lot of things that didn't know had to learn the hard way but I yeah I just WANNA encourage people to take take care of body and put that I you know and if you need motivation to do that just google you know ultra marathon runner injury like just a line and you'll see a lot of this competitive runners you know and I don't. I don't say they shouldn't do that if that's what they really WanNa do that sent amazing human feet what a lot of runners up doing in their careers but most of us I think if we really evaluate our values that's not necessarily what we're trying to do so what you only one body. I know that one of the things depending on where you are geographically it can be difficult to find the shoes I know Dr mcclanahan has on his website which will have a link had figure out if you're wearing the right-sized shoe he talks about taking out the insole the shoe and standing on the insole and if your shoes are skews nature toes sleigh out to the side and you need to find a wider shoe because the idea is to let the feet spread spread out in the muscles actually do the job for somebody who may be live someplace and I'll put myself out there. I'm fortunate enough that I have a little bit of education. I have people that I can ask like you but local stores. Don't sell those shoes. I was was in a running store this weekend with my girlfriend. She was looking for a pair of ultras and they had two miles of alters. Nothing in her size chief fortunately has me and she can piggyback off my knowledge over. Somebody is listening to this work. Can they get some information Asian as far as figuring out. What do I look at for shoes? <hes> where do I go to figure out. How do I take it very very slow rather than say oh well? Here's a running magazine that says here's a ten week program to run a marathon with on which if you're genetically gifted or would I call genetic freak that works but we used to joke when I was doing Ironman triathlons the most important thing was getting to the starting line and you'd rather be untrained getting to the starting line in either be over trainer ranger injured absolutely so there were few resources that I you heavily when I got going <hes> I was a <unk> I'm friends with Dr Mark Zella and he has has a website natural running center dot com and said that was one of those places I went to just Kinda read some moves article. He also had a lot of information on shoes because he has a minimalist shoe store in West Virginia so that that's one place I went <hes> another so Kinda us. There's a gentleman named Michael Sandler and he companies Tim inspiration because he had had a major accident had hip replacement lots of new surgeries and was able looking back to running and I looked at him and I said well. My injuries are not nearly as cigarettes. Surely if I can do it let me suit. He asked to say well. He and his wife wrote two books. One is coke barefoot walking in the others called barefoot running and I bought here for running on the blank. Is They really gave really information on like here's how to listen to your body. Here's some drills here some easy to start with. Here's what you she you'll. Here's where you should not feel and then a gradual progression ocean of sort of a walking or or jogging on the wanted to do but if it was a little more touchy feely and I like that because there's a lot of folks that and everything is so black and white and there are some things they're soreness their stiffness. There's paid those are all different things on restrictions sensation. Sometimes I asked <unk> house up it hurts in as well. What do you mean by the time get to the infant's long conversation? We're feeling pressure you know so I felt that those were very good. Resources resources to Kinda help guide guide me through that process and then over the years. I've I've been on the Internet and I've act I probably bought just about every brand of minimal shoot at some point of the year the bottom of the shoe so you're talking about we know the ticket pulling the insole out and using that kind of guidance the shoes GonNa fit you but this is a soft starship called software primal but this is she this to- box this is even more primal so to speak than the ultra issue and also known for the WTO box <hes> but the shoe is I joke around so this is my work shoe and I call it. I told my patience if a duck everywhere bowling shoes like this so why comet would you know and I thought people would kinda joke about my shoes at work and I have a lot of sixty plus year olds coming into those shoes look so comfortable and they're wearing shoes that walking pig leg <unk> nothing buttons and they say those look so comfortable and I said well are you comfortable ing barefoot in Your House and they go on ago. Okay we'll you can try these out or something and he build up to and I've watched a lot of people improve balance in their strength and it's it's just interesting so there is experimentation. There is some time online not all folks have those resources to actually get their foot into something but the books I think are very helpful in terms of knowing. What does it look like? I should also send you a link. 'cause I wrote an article on what is healthy shoe and people might want to check that out. It goes in depth map. We can have that in the show notes. I know what she said about online. If you get online dropped down the rabbit hole there are probably conservatively ten to fifteen different companies that make various types of natural footwear and some of it is exceedingly ugly and some of it is so ugly as like. That's really cool looking kind of like the bowling shoes that you just Hel held up a few minutes ago. Yeah I think actually mentioned this the first time we talk but what I promote in promote anything in issue it's that the cushioning is excessive so that's going to be different whoever whoever's wearing the shoe so some people may need a little bit more cushioning for what they're doing whether body is at the moment but the biggest thing is like for people to be in flat foot. We're in. I don't like their toes of their metatarsal to be compressed. So if you're compressing metatarsal you're essentially asking for foot pain. You're asking Warton's aroma. Which is where <hes> here's yours at run between those bones and if you compress that you'll basically feel like they're hot ochre going into your foot? It's very painful condition. A lot of people just need wider shoes and again your toes should really be splayed displayed completely splayed when your weight bearing with no restriction that is defined but but that is what I've pushed people towards at least thankfully there are companies now that offer by the way if you're really having trouble and you can get away with sandals where sandals as much as you can't find a sandal that works for you because you're not going to have to worry about that whole to- box situation as much. You're you're. You're going to be more likely to move naturally. I think that's great advice from Sam would physical therapist us. I think one of the things you just hit on their whether you realize that are not as you said <hes> where your body is at and I know that as I've gone down this path just personally just because I treat myself as an end of one in figure well worst case scenario is if yeah I get injured. I can hobble along is my footwear needs have changed. I remember when I first <hes> interviewed you. We talked a little bit about ultra footwear and I said while I I like loan peaks but I can't run in the king the king shoot the king models you have and I found bound over the last three or four months. Those have become my most comfortable shoes and I don't know exactly why it is. It's probably a combination of spending more time in sandals shoes like xanax and using correct toes but I know what I did now is not what I did a year and a half ago and if I go back six or seven years ago I was like you wearing hocus or new balance shoes that were very cushioned with a nice expensive tariff carbon-fiber orthotics which I have no idea where they are now yeah and there was a point earlier <hes> I thought mentioning we're talking about shoes in cushioning and I.

"Proponents? It has people say you know it works so even if there's not large studies this is something that's at least worth approaching. If what you've been trying isn't working you have any people or do you have a problem with your patients saying this is crap. It's not gonNA work <unk>. That's way too long if I if it's GONNA take eight months to get back to doing what I wanna do I think I usually approach it from a standpoint of I kinda defeated defeated their curiosity so ask him questions because when people talk about what has filled them then you can kind of insert this thing of okay we're GonNa try to actually you know you've been a mobilizing your feet for example you haven't been using any had shots or sureshot's so usually that actually builds the frustration. I say okay well. I WanNa do something different and in most people are very open to that idea and I don't necessarily presented as necessary I like I don't I don't want to give them everything at once. So one of the articles I referenced a lot is in. You're probably familiar with it because I feel like it's in a certain communities discussed a lot but it say a comparison Jason Study from nineteen o five from the journal own enjoying surgery. I believe it isn't so you might have heard of that Ben but basically <hes> this guy back in nineteen o five publicist study comparing shoe wearing people's versus folks except you know just Kinda grow running around earn very basic sandals and it's just such a beautiful article in terms of looking at 'cause people will look at that and they say oh my God that's my feet and it's like the maligned foot and I say you know how baby's foot looks you know. It's like Arto should be like that. Here's initiative explain why they're having their problems and give them some very basic I own Olsen and honestly I have yet to meet someone who at at least intellectually has not bought into that in it's for me. It's not about my patients believing a certain thing I want them to experiment tasks and let's use some common sense. Let's look at with the research says <hes> so I mean honestly if someone comes in like I'm wearing orthotics and I feel great and that's what I WANNA do than I am not necessarily trying to change them unless they're just fed up with. Maybe they have inner back then but I want them to come to me. Are you ready to make a change. I think what's interesting about people who embrace it any level the natural running of using footwear or your feet actually have room to move around or if they transition a little bit farther like you do to sandals or indoor barefoot is there seems to be. I don't know if it's innately or something that develops that this is not just something you do. It's not like a quote unquote. I'm doing rehab for my footer. I'm doing Rehab for my hip. It's something that you just look. I need to do this basically as long as I'm going to be active and I think you've touched on this by saying you know I love my military career. I'm in combat boot sometimes but I recognize that I have to do things when outside of my combat boots so I can continue so you to do it. Do you find that with patients that you get who come in and I would imagine in many cases they come in and they're very very depressed in disappointed because they can't do what they wanna do whether it's run elite level or just get out and run around with their kids as they start to see oh. This is working a little bit. I'm getting a little bit better. I still hurt sometimes they become kind of disciples of it and start to say give me more. Give me more tell me what else I can do. Yes if I if I have them as patients long enough and they don't run out and Sam better I is but as soon as people get one they really can't they really do tend to be very independent. which is in some conditions? Oh you what's interesting is there's a lot of folks that you know maybe we work on some mobility and have them where toasts pacers and just do a few simple things than they already start to feel better <hes> and they see that their body can change a lot of people get stuck in a mindset set may forget that their body can change with what they do and then my job are teal. Take it upon myself. I start asking a lot of questions because I wanNA know how. Can we make this last for you. What is your dating look like? What is your life? Look like. What do you want like to do? And how can we take. The things that I knew are working for you right now in the clinic in build on that sold and just make it a daily activity. I I enjoy it's finally I enjoy my barefoot walks on my lunch break and it's a time to take walking for sheer but it feels good I mean I don't it doesn't matter what I was thinking about in the clinic rolling over <hes> it's automatically undercut transformed into super relaxed state so it I don't have to push myself off to do that and it's something afford to and I try to find whatever that is for my patients once they start to feel better because once they're on the right track yes. It may take a few months. <hes> give them my car. They can email me anytime they don't have to necessarily necessarily <hes> keep coming in and paying money once they have a handle on what they're supposed to be doing and I'm curious because I know with medicine and insurance sometimes insurance pays for a set number of physical physical therapy visits and then it's done do find that you have some patients who they're seeing success but they recognize and there are some people who just are not self motivated or they want somebody to look over them so yes. You're doing this right now. You're doing that wrong. You find that thoroughfare number of patients. WHO said you know I'd like to continue to come in pay out of pocket? We we do have some <hes>. I think a lot at least with foot and ankle health over the years. I've learned learned how how to make it simple and if I through their for their New Year there hit and maybe we are focusing a little bit on that area but I check their ankles. I send them home with what I what I tell them. This is propaganda. I want you to look at this and I want you to make your own conclusion on it and if this is something you want to work on just let's talk at your next. Is it so there are there are some people that will pay out of pocket but honestly with this stuff once folks buy into it's so simple and they start got to get benefits pretty quick that most people don't need to do that. Somebody's listening to this and you know maybe there are a runner and they're saying well right now. I'm running in. Let's just throw it out. I'm not gonNA actually name any brand of shoes because we don't want to you mentioned sorry you mentioned Hokey but it could be any of a number of brands that have very very cushioned shoes and they say well. You know I'm doing pretty good. I don't really hurt. Sometimes I hurt. Why should I change change and I mean they may not be saying you in the clinic but I mean I know when you're running the trails? You're at the coffee shop or something somebody sees you have heard about this because your physical therapist and kind of like when you see your auto mechanic to hey my gps making this funny noise so they say this to you. What's what's your comment to people who haven't had problems if folks don't have any problems there are pretty amazing human being both runners? If you start to ask them <hes> they've they have some niggles enemy or may not be related to their shoes in their footwear either running style because they're training program <hes> Image Watch so I'm reluctant to wish to hard <hes> it might be for propaganda. Speak it's for me. It's more about <hes> if you are having a problem or maybe you have three current injury and you're doing fine now but you're worried about an upcoming race. A lot of owners will say I have this hamstring issue where this ankle issue and I can run but I I'm not wearing I wanna be and so then I tend to pry a little bit. <hes> one thing that I think is helpful to folks can go look at the policy two thousand fourteen thirteen but I don't think it's been updated in that. The American College Sports Medicine running shoe guidelines in it. It just talks about how basically a shoe is meant to protect your foot and so the map protection you need is GonNa vary depending on what you're doing in the terrain understandably. I've got like thicker shoe here. So people see that sticker in hassle cushion <hes> I've thicker sand that I wear sometimes when I run and so the idea is to pick the protection protection that you need for your body where it's at right now on that day so it can be extremely variable but in terms of positioning again it's more about just making. I think it's more about making your feet healthier in your ankles. Healthier in the system were better so you're more resilient and I know if I was probably Ted years ago. I was having this conversation as a constantly injured runner who loved erase love to do it. I would probably say well. That's Nice Sam but it's not for me and I don't know if it's because I've got older because to me. The idea of the fun time is to go out run in the woods Fart Lake with my dogs. That's I'd rather do that that a race that now it's kind of like you know I'm going to do do the things that I need to do but I know that many runners or competitors and you've described something that takes a great deal of patients to go from somebody who's an injured runner and it's very difficult to get a runner to say hey. You need to really the reassess what you're doing. It may take six months eight months ten months to do that and I think what also is a something to discuss her or mentioned. Here is not all medical professionals are going to be willing to do something or work with a patient for six eight ten months. They're gonNA say well if this doesn't seem to be working. Maybe you shouldn't run and I know there are a number of people out there. I know Dr mcclanahan. I'm GONNA put your his name the so I'll let you saying they say you can run but it may be much much slower and much shorter distances than you think you should be able to correct <hes> in so I mean I had to slow down significantly early..

"You're you're back and so worth so I had a concussion. This is in January two thousand fifteen and I'd slipped on ice on it was one of those embarrassing injuries I was looking around like. Did anyone see that. I thought I was fine but actually had trouble working for about two weeks so I I had a difficulty can make blood pressure my heart rate and so it was hard for me to get up and walk around during that time when I was in home and I was out of my combat boots my foot in my hip started better. I hadn't seen any improvement with anything over the course of six months so to answer your question <hes> once I once I felt that change I started doing more research and I said you know what I am. Totally one hundred percent committed you. Did this is my body for the first time in a long time is actually giving me the feedback that I've wanting to see and before you'd had that two weeks or so off were you aware of natural footwear and getting out of cushioned shoes and orthotics such as hocus yes. Yes and I should backtrack in two thousand fourteen. I made an unsuccessful transition it kind of worked for a little while I didn't run barefoot. I had transitioned into ultras and Brooks at the time was making a fairly minimal issue and I was running doing really well with that <hes> while so a lot but I think what happened to me and what happens to a lot of folks aside if <unk> <music> audibly transitioning to quickly in their gate patterns really change that much so there's a lot of good analogies but one that I'm going to still as if you're banging your head against the wall adding cushing your head pillows can help you and so took some of that cushion away in some of that support and I was still banging <unk> law and I think that actually led to a overuse injury in my foot in hip or made it worse because I had injuries before but it sent me back for that six months and kind of switching gears I think we'll do a little switching back and forth as a professional as a physical therapist from what you've seen can pretty much everybody transitioned to natural footwear order some people just because of their bio mechanics the way their bodies made up like you know this might not be the best thing for somebody like you. That's a great question I would say what I see in the clinic a lot of times by the time folks get to the clan back if they're older and really had decades of being in footwear that has caused alignment issues in their feet in a lot of weakness. I think everyone can do something to make their foot health better in their mobility in their feet ankle's better <hes> obviously depending had surgery to have fusion or of rightous the more extreme cases. I think they may need some special support or special shoes if you're if for diabetic utility to protect your feet but that doesn't mean you can't come out of your shoes in a safe environment in do rehabilitation. That's going to improve sensation your appropriate section your ability in your feet your strength so forth so there's component component and there's also this entire hold neurological component that goes with getting awareness of your feet. If you're going to be walking on your fees should take your feet and I'm curious switching back to the personal or performance. What was the impetus to say? I WanNa start doing some ultra runs in sandals. Where if you're running on trails there's rocks depending where you are? There's cactus spines and various other things so for awhile because barefoot works so well I spent about three months united wear shoes to work. I'd try to go minimal. Wonder was running. When it's building at my running I would only do their foot on when <hes> sometimes between barefoot running days on that rest stay would take a barefoot walk? The reason I did that is actually tried. <hes> I'M GONNA show you thin Sandal here. Just you can get an idea. I have some like crops here so they put this thin Sandal on at the time I would immediately have foot in hip pain running and I thought to myself okay. How long have I been running incorrectly? If that little bit of change in the feedback then changes that whole all neurological loop and I'm moving differently so eventually I was able to wear this and the in in basically most shoes aren't aren't going to aren't going to do this right. They're not going to curl up. There are some minimal shoes curl up like that <hes> but for me I need my toes to spread and my foot got so wide running barefoot that I couldn't most shoes irritated my feet so it was a necessity thing as well and I wanted to go on some trails very might terrain nine so I- progress in the sandals and really for two years I most shoes all it was either barefoot or samples and I think it's interesting you say your foot got wider. I've run in ultras for it. Probably five or six years and I remember interviewing you and you had mentioned correct does that after after interviewing Dr mcclanahan it's like well. I'm going to rake by correct. Does that have been sitting in a box out and I found over the course of about the last three months. My shoe size is has gone up a half a shoe size and L.. A. Used to feel extremely uncomfortable wearing the correct does and I did work work into doing it now. It just feels completely normal and a toe that really didn't WanNa A._B.. Duct I'm noticing is starting to quiver so the information that you're saying Dr mcclanahan says works even for somebody who is a little bit north of fifty absolutely and you know that the key is a lot of these things when as we're trying to improve our body especially depends on her age and hell no bodies have been the one thing if if I have the correlation is if I had a patient come in the clinic and bed mobility just getting out of bed was an issue I wouldn't have him dead. Lift five hundred pounds of course not but it's very similar with feet if your toes are out of alignment or maybe you're arch hasn't upper leaflets in a long time. It's just stiff. The last thing you WanNa do is go and challenge that with the hardest thing you can think of and I'm curious. I know that you still do quite a few races and running etc and I've noticed from the pictures etc.. There's a transition away from sandals into shoes. Is there a reason for that a lot of it has to do with the climate <hes> typically in the winter here in Colorado. I've tried to I've I've maintained a lot of sandal running <hes> but this year I trained for the hurt one hundred tro running that's in Hawaii in January we had a particularly snowy winter in Colorado and so I really did for traction purposes in order to get a spike or the ice on my feet a half to have some time issue and the shoe passerby a little bit stiff. There has to be protection there also if I if I were telling people if you WANNA go out and do a race and perform at your absolute best and you're just gonNA push your body. You're not necessarily surly there to have fun yet. I found I do a little bit better shoe because I can kind of just throw away like I try to keep good mechanics but I can kinda just go in Bob Downhill for example or you know I can say it rains it sales become a problem in the rain in mud so I just don't have to worry about those things in issue. <hes> what I've made sure to do however because I actually start to get pain running if I haven't been out my shoes you so I usually maintain a few barefoot walks over lunch break and then at least once a week I try to do barefoot run to maintain the spring and my feet the strength and then also sort of again at neurological loop. I told medications all the time like if you think about someone who's really good at something like in player you know they've been shooting free rose for two decades. However will they are and they're really good at it but they still practice? You know a million shots all the time and it's it's just to get that muscle memory so I have to keep that. Even if I'm shoes a lot because old habits it's somewhere in my brain how to over stride and it will come back. If I don't check on it once they walk out and I know you mentioned you're still in the military so I imagine when you go for training you have to wear combat boots Ju- notice after a weekend or after two weeks that there are some hip pain or some foot pain or some deep pain because you've been wearing the combat breath roots. Yes absolutely it's funny. We say that I had to real last weekend and even for two days I mean I notice it. An immediate I think to agree that's the way my body responds because knows and <hes> so it happens very quickly <hes> a lot of folks once sing it out of their stiff shoes in they start moving the stiff shoe back on they can feel the difference in your body stretch to reject it it actually their shoes. I used to wear comfortably that I can't put on my my seat because I'll have pain so that that's probably the one area. That's the most difficult <hes> especially if I need to activate in for a long time I have to have recovery tools <hes> attack actually Microsoft packed these travel and <hes> and usually some type of massage tool or ball so I can mobilize my feet and <hes> and then I just you know when I'm not at work I'll I'll go barefoot and just include a lot autograph. Walking Stephen Somewhat mitigated but you know my preferences said Never Been Abboud again I just I really love my military career. I'm curious with the combat boots. Are you able to get wide enough combat boots so you could wear the correct does with the conduct boots. I do think that exists. It's been a struggle in. I think she is most soldiers when they're shopping for boots. There's an online selection which is very large and then there's selection of you can actually try on locally. Fully end so I tend to buy whatever they have locally and I actually I tend to not wear them because let's say I have this correct toes on all day and they start to your tater. They start to slip a little bit. It's just a lot of work to get my boot off and take what are you doing just might wear them at night. That's the case it that's I know there are a lot of runners who go to physical therapy and have the experience that you had a few years ago while I'm doing all these things that the physical therapist is telling me to do or in your case that I know I should do from my education and it's not working. When you get a runner or you get a walker or somebody who comes into your clinic with something that has a recalcitrant injury ed you come up with what you're telling number suggesting they do with their rehab which for traditional medicine is way off in left field but <music> but is slowly growing and has its proponents?.

"Life. If you're just a regular mover today's guest I interviewed way way back. I guess almost two years ago when I first started doing moving to live and I literally came across her name. I'm on late did and I'm glad I did. I use her story all of the time when interview people by telling them that part of the thing that makes the podcast makes guess interesting is the story and the story. I always tell about her is how she got into physical therapy. She finished running a college he went home and she got a job skating alligators and recognized. She didn't like that and that pretty much puts a guests guests at ease so I am excited to have Sam would back again today. Sam is a physical therapist ultra runner a spartan athlete a alter endurance mountain bike rider and if you follow her on Instagram you see some great pictures of the mountains in the Colorado Springs area and usually a picture of her friends dog too and I wanted to have Salmaan first of all because us on a interviewed her the first time one of the things she had in her bio as she has done the Leadville one hundred iron man in sandals but she's also a big fan professionally and personally in running in natural footwear and letting your feet in the muscles muscles your feet and your legs do the work rather than relying on technology and things that may prevent you for being a long-term runner because eventually muscles atrophy etc <hes> she recommended that I interview Dr Ray mcclanahan and a hand the inventor of correct toes. I thought it made sense to come full circle back to go from the physician who people might see to the physical therapist who cannot only talk the talk but also walk the walk so Sam. Thanks for joining moving to live for another interview expend yeah. I'm super excited you back and I think the first thing that people WanNa know because whenever you see somebody who's a runner and you've been out of school a few years ten fifteen may be twenty years and it's very unusual for for people who run in college to be running twenty years later because they've usually beaten themselves up so I'm curious when you had finished you're running career in college or you a beaten up an injured runner or were you still going strong thinking. I'm invincible for <unk> while I was still going strong and thinking I was invincible. <hes> I was very fortunate in college. I think I had shin-splints. A couple of times. Never had a major injury or maybe a couple days of Acre became so <hes> but I also looking back. I wish I had kept better training laws. I don't think my mileage was necessarily what a lot of collegiate runners do and maybe had it been. I might have had more problems so as I <hes> finished college and started Grad School as physical therapy school and to impart to keep my sanity I was basically either sitting studying or it was running and then sometimes on my bicycle and the running started to accumulated. I did some marathons and I thought well this is. I want to say this is easy but the way I was doing. It was like you know this is. This is pretty fun. I I did maybe four or five and then I started doing fifty ks and then I did a fifty miler. All the fifty miler was where the wheel so off and it could have been looking back now. Some of it could have been my training but it was very frustrating to me I think at the time I've been running eleven years competitively and no no Oh major injury and now I was physical therapy student and I had an injury and I thought well this is kind of ironic. <hes> so I went into <hes> I was in the military are still am but at the time I was going through the Army Baylor physical therapy program so I went and see a physical therapist and they I don't know what their background was with running and I think part of it was still falling the old paradigm they're like strengthen strengthen your core and you won't have too much trouble with this hip injury in the long run and I just didn't find that to be true. I did all the physical therapy that I knew and for about five years I struggled with hip injury and then sometimes a foot injury so the age twenty five. I thought maybe running <hes> because I could not run without pain every single day. Sometimes it was a two out of ten sometimes it would stop me and send me home but that's that's kind of how it all started and what about now multiple years later you ever run with pain or do you find that with your trading and I know from reading your bio. You also do some strikes training aside from the running. What's your findings now versus when you were twenty five or twenty six so it's funny over the years I I Kinda WanNa redefine pain? I think the body has sensitivities and there is such thing as you need to stop sensitivity <hes> <hes> but I don't run with a pain that I had and I would say ninety nine percent of the time I don't have any when and if it is pain <hes> it if it is affecting my gate. Maybe I wrote my ankle on Iraq or or something unusually. It's something external that happened. <hes> I'm not really getting before I would. I would just have pain no matter what I did my trading plan and now it's usually a pretty obvious 'cause if something does cause pain and unable to work through that <hes> but one of the things that had to change was I had to learn to actually listen to my body in so ironic is a physical therapists a lot of people. I don't think they really know what it means because I teach it in the clinic everyday. They're like audie. Listen on the couch eating <unk> or something like that so I say well you know there's there's a different so I teach a lot of that but basically what it comes down to. If you're doing something and you think I can't come back out here tomorrow and do this again. You're probably going to heart and there's a time in place to go hard. <hes> I go hard. I joked with my friends like maybe three or four days in entire year I go heart and that's at the World Championships Berg race the leg but one hundred that's when I kinda shut some of those signals down in I could be but you're training in your daily moving your daily. Life should not be painful and I'm curious in in addition to the knowledge that comes with age and education on curious how much you think the reduction in and I'm putting it in air. Quotes Pain is reduced because of a change in running surfaces. I know allies for most of the pictures I see on social media. You're running in your moving on sauce surfaces. You're not running on roads which many people when they think I want to run a marathon or I wanted run <hes> a half marathon. They do a lot of their training on the roads they do and I think I think to run on the roads. You have to be very careful about conditioning your body because it's a it's a different. It's a different stimulus than the trowel so I do run a lot of trails in part because they're beautiful. I don't have to worry about vehicle traffic <hes> so the air tends to be cleaner and it's it's the trail so it's really nice <hes> you're also very aggregate a lot and when you're on the road you tend to have roughly the same gate pattern unless you're on a really nice course where you're you're on rolling hills in that helps it was kind of rehabbing myself and trying to get into more natural footwear. I spent a lot of time barefoot and I actually preferentially sought out hard smooth surfaces so that was a clean sidewalk or clean road and that's actually where I learned my proper movement so it's kind of ironic because yes pavement in a way it can be pounding but it depends okay so <hes> I don't if we want to talk about shoes yet but there are plenty of smaller studies that will talk about show you how more cushion that you have in your shoe harder you actually land and I having been someone on who I was in Hocus in orthotics. When I was in a lot of pain though I was I was at that extreme and now I can still because I'm doing it once or twice a week I can still go and do three to five miles? Barefoot run on the road in nothing shows better at fuels justice comfortable to my body as the trail but it's the way that I'm running and I'm curious. I think it's all I it's important to say that your three to five miles barefoot on the road has been after a number of years of conditioning your body to do that. It's not if somebody's listening to this. It's not something hey go out tomorrow and do that. Yes no don't do that by license revoked immediately process two thousand fifteen so so it's been a long road to get there but it in there are plenty of programs and we can provide some resources for people to help them understand just how slow that process is. I spent a lot of time barefoot before I I took a step jogging. My first jogging. I think was twenty five meters at twelve minute mile pace and I know there's something out there that they call slow jogging that they're out of Japan that they recommend for people who were told that they never run. They're they're told don't run again. There's I don't remember his name but <hes> there's a whole slow jogging movement and if you do a youtube search you can find these people it looks like they're barely running but they're moving at a pace significantly faster than walking walking with the idea being eventually to have the motion that you're doing while slow jogging actually be at a significantly faster pace. Yes and I been given some really good advice when I started. In My <unk> started was reluctant. I started out of necessity. I run without paying out really tired of and I was active duty military the time as well so it was very important to actually be able to pass a P._d.. Tasks of being a physical therapist it was very frustrating. I wanted to fix this and some of the advice today been given was little little tips. Go slower than you need once your feet get tired stop. Stop don't wait till they don't wait till they're sore stock when they're tire and there were some programs again that progressed very very very slowly <hes> never working out today's in a row us or things so I the slower you go the faster you get there in this case and I'm curious that brings to mind to questions first of all as an athlete <hes> you said that you approach this just kind of as I last resort but what was your attitude sued as far as when you were going so slow and maybe you couldn't run two days in a row you like this is crap. I can't do this or this is never going to get any better or did you trust the process I think in my case it was easy to trusttheprocess because preceding me starting suspend a lot of time barefoot and trying to jog I hadn't run for over six months and I had had a groin injury in a foot injury on my right side and the foot injury was Kinda often on sometimes it hurts and time to didn't the hip injury just felt worse even as I was taking time off in cross training so I one of the things that happened so being active duty at the time I put on every day. Even if I'm in the clinic Simon my combat boots they've made some positive changes to certain brands combat boots but essentially they're all pretty stiff even today and so you being in stiff shoes. I didn't realize that when you spend a lot of time in stiff shoes it makes you footsteps and whether or not you have pain in your foot that stiffness center foot and ankle can be affecting your hip..
