In this episode, I talk with Tina Muir.

Tina is an elite runner chasing her dreams of representing her country in a major World Championship.
 
Her PRs are 16:08 (5k), 33:24 (10k), 1:13 (Half Marathon), and 2:41 (Marathon). 
 
Tina grew up in England and now lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband. 
 
She is also the host of the Run to the Top Podcast and works as a Community Manager for Runners Connect - one of the few podcasts for runners I listen to on a regular basis.
 
But don't let Tina's blazing fast race times fool you. Tina, like you and me, struggles with many of the same mental battles that al runners face. It doesn't matter if you're a pro trying to qualify for the Olympics or a total beginner looking to lose 30 pounds. 
 
In this chat Tina shares personal stories about these struggles - many of them will hit home with me and will do so for a lot of you listeners I think. In fact, in her last race she had a panic attack and somehow managed to keep going and win the race.
 
Tina also shares some of her best tips for beginner runners and her simple yet powerful approach to eating healthfully. 
 
The show notes - including all the links Tina I mention in our chat - for this episode with be at healthynomics.com/24 - there you'll also be able to download the transcript to this episode.
 
Enjoy the show everyone.

In this episode, I talk with Jason Fitzgerald from Strength Running.

Jason is a running coach, 2:39 marathoner and a wealth of practical knowledge when it comes to all things running.

Whether you like it or not, regular running does not mean you should let your nutrition suffer. In fact, the opposite is true.

And if you're looking to lose weight, coupling consistent running with a good diet can increase your chances of reaching your goal weight.

If you want to become the best runner you can be, your diet can not be ignored.

Jason and I dig into all this stuff today.

Be sure to check out Jason's Nutrition for Runners program. It will help you whether you're looking to run faster or lose weight. 

In this podcast, you will learn about:

  • Why runners should even care about nutrition.
  • The difference between eating well for a runner versus a non-runner.
  • What you should eat before a run.
  • How far or long do you need to run before considering mid-run fueling.
  • The best foods to consume after your workout.
  • Jason's take on re-fueling with chocolate milk.
  • How a training plan differs for runners that are looking to lose weight versus runners who are looking to get faster.
  • How it's possible to go for a run in a fasted state.
  • Are supplements necessary for runners?
  • And more...
