  • Together Run means we run together, as a community, as a group. While we run separate, this will feel like you are running alongside friends. Checking in with nature, with your body, with your surroundings through our meditative start to the run, and then going into a conversational part of the run, to catch up and get to know one another more. If you haven't tried a Together Run yet, and especially if you are feeling lonely, this run is worth a try.

  • Philip King isn’t concerned with PRs - which is surprising, considering how fast he is, with times around 1:15 for the half marathon and 2:48 for the full. He runs for the challenge, to connect with others, and to motivate members of his community. He’s active in Black Men Run, serves on the Black Unicorn Marathoners committee, and has run in races around the world, all while working a full-time job and raising a family.

  • Today on Weekly Strides, we have, as Tina says, “a weird, random episode, a one-off.” Tina is the interviewee, and long-time listeners will recognize the interviewer’s voice - it’s Jeremy Noessel, the editor for Running for Real, who used to do the intro to the podcast.

    At the end of 2019, Tina launched a course that she had created to help runners with something she had struggled with - and successfully overcome. As she explains, “Basically, when I was running at the elite level, I did a lot of work on the mental side of things. I worked with Evie, my sports psychologist; I read up on things. I did what I could, but I noticed that for me, the mental side of things was always what came between me and my best performances. When something went wrong, it was mentally that something went wrong.”

    When she wrote about those mental freakouts on her blog, people would tell her that they felt the same way. Meanwhile, she was learning tactics to break through those barriers. “I thought,” she says, “I learned these tactics and yes, they still come through, these negative thoughts, but surely other people could learn them too. And so I gathered up everything I had learned, every tactic I used, and everything that I felt was a piece of me getting stronger mentally and therefore being able to run to my potential. Reaching that lifetime goal of running for Great Britain was because I got that mental part done. And so I thought if I made a course where I could teach everyone everything I had learned, then maybe they could take it into their own running, and when people said to me, ‘I'm not mentally tough enough,’ I could say, ‘Here's everything I know; go do it.’”

    She called the 12-week course that she created Mile 20: Mental Training to Win Your Race. The runners who took it loved it; you can read what they have to say about it at the bottom of this page. But the world shut down in March 2020, and Mile 20 shut down with it. Now Tina is relaunching the course, and if anything, it’s even more relevant now than it was originally.

    One of the things that sets Mile 20 apart from other courses is its community element. There are videos to watch and worksheets to complete, but there’s also an exclusive Facebook group where participants can get support from others who are running a race at around the same time that they are, as well as from the Running for Real team. As Tina says, “I think if we've noticed anything from the last few years, it’s that we need that connection, we need that community, we need to be talking to other people for our own mental health, and so to be doing it with a mental course is just a perfect combination.”

    Mile 20 is open for registration through August 21st. It will be $197, which is $100 off the regular price, through August 14, and then it will be the regular price of $297. After that, registration will be closed until December or January. You can start the course whenever the timing is appropriate for your goal race, so even if it’s in the winter, you can sign up now and begin when the time is right. You can learn more and sign up here.

  • It started with an email. Jake Fedorowski had decided that they no longer wanted to run in races that didn’t offer a non-binary division. They would email race directors to inquire if there was an option for non-binary runners, and more often than not, the answer would be “no.” It wasn’t that race directors were unwilling; they simply had no idea what to do. It was from that simple beginning that the Guide to Non-Binary Inclusion in Running was born.

    Our sponsor this week is… Running for Real!

    The Mile 20: Mental Training to Win Your Race course will give you the mental training techniques to not only become more confident as a runner, but as a person. We begin with that foundation in building you up as a human being first because we can't be confident as runners until we take care of our confidence in ourselves. You're also going to learn techniques to handle every race day situation that could be thrown at you. You're going to have specific tactics and tools that will help you handle race day panic, race day stress, things that could go wrong. You're going to learn to understand the signals that your body is giving you during the race and how to handle them and also how to protect yourself from feelings of failure.

    We runners can be quite hard on ourselves and this is going to help you to have a healthy perspective. This is a 12 week course. Each week we'll have a video for you, and pdf worksheets that you can download and fill in to help really bring home those messages.

    For one week only, starting on August 8th, this course is going to go on sale for $100 off. That will be $197 instead of the usual $297. It will then go up to $297 for a week and then I will shut the doors because it's really important that we have accountability buddies so we can work together through this training course and go through it as a community. That is really important to me. This is only going to be open for two weeks, so go here to find out more and add yourself to the waitlist to guarantee that you get one of those spots for the first week.

  • If you’ve never heard of complete androgen insensitivity syndrome, you’re not alone. It’s one of 44 intersex variations which, although they affect up to 2 percent of the population, are rarely talked about. Jackie Green wants to change that. As a competitive runner (and Tina’s teammate) at Ferris State University, she kept quiet about having CAIS. But she came out publicly five years ago and now uses her platform as the reigning Mrs. America to advocate for intersex youth.

  • Adrianne Haslet crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon this year alongside her coach, Shalane Flanagan, on what she called “the best day of my life.” It was the culmination of a vow she had made just five days after the 2013 Boston Marathon. She wasn’t a runner then; she was at the marathon as a spectator when a terrorist detonated a homemade bomb near the finish line. Adrianne lost her left leg in the explosion, but declared less than a week later that she would return to run the marathon.

    Since that day, she has run Boston three times, has been instrumental in bringing a Para Division to the iconic race, and become a global keynote speaker whose debut TED talk has been viewed over 6.7 million times.

  • Ahhh it feels so good to be back recording these. This one is from the day I was meant to being my THIRD attempt at an ultra, but once again, sickness made not possible. I was a little raw on this day, and talked it through with you as I ran (and walked) up giant hills and viewed the scenery. You will hear me shift my mindset during the run and hopefully make you feel positive too.

    Join Tina for a run around Shropshire. This run involves meditative aspects- a nature check in, body scan, senses check in, and mental health check in, and then Tina talks through her decision to not race in Snowdonia while she was in the UK, and challenges herself up some tough hills instead. Join Tina for this real, raw Together Run.

  • Running is often the best part of Simran Jeet Singh’s day, the time when he feels most free. It’s when his best creative thinking happens in terms of his writing, resulting in his new book, The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. In it, he explains how the Sikh teachings that he was raised with can contribute to a happier life. He’s drawn on them to counter the racism that he’s encountered as a turban-wearing, dark-skinned, first generation American, but they can help everyone move toward positive change.

  • “Running is a lifelong friend.” That’s how microbiologist Dr. Lydia Jennings describes the sport she first embraced as a teenager at boarding school. She calls it her “best relationship” with herself. Like all relationships, it has its ups and downs, but it’s a central part of her life not only for physical and mental health, but as a tool for scholarship, environmental activism, and to be present in her community. It’s taken her to the Boston Marathon; on a 50-mile run to honor Indigenous scholars, documented in Run To Be Visible; and across 135 miles of the desert Southwest to change the way that we think about the literal and metaphorical skin of the Earth.

  • It was while running the Philadelphia Marathon that Charles Moore made the observation that gave rise to his upcoming memoir: Black People Don’t Run Marathons. Whenever he encountered another Black runner in that race, they would give him “the nod,” an unspoken acknowledgement of his presence there. Reflecting on the experience, he realized that “there was a sort of diversity issue in endurance and distance running.” He had friends who exercised regularly, but none of them had run a marathon. “I thought,” he says, “maybe I can do something to inspire them to add that to their resume of things that they do to continue this journey of being physically fit and healthy.” Within three years he ran 19 marathons, including five of the six World Majors.

  • Many people start running because they’re inspired - or tricked or persuaded - by a devoted runner who introduces them to the sport. Not so Mary Rice-Boothe. The chief access and equity officer of The Leadership Academy ran her first race, the New York City Half Marathon, at the request of her sister - who wasn’t even a runner herself! She discovered how much she loved running while training for the race and it’s since become an important part of her routine, helping her to deal with the stress of an extremely demanding job, helping to create school systems that support students, especially minoritized students.

  • You might assume that Tim Brown, CEO and co-founder of the revolutionary shoe company Allbirds, has a footwear background, but he actually has a football background. He was a professional soccer player with the New Zealand National Team when he conceived of the idea for a running shoe made from natural materials. Being from New Zealand, where sheep outnumber humans six to one, wool was the obvious choice and the prototype for Allbirds was born. They’ve just launched their new shoe, the Tree Flyer, designed for distance running.

  • Since the age of five, Jessica Trengove has had “an innate belief that we could all be whatever we wanted to be if we put our minds to it.” Her goals at the time were to be a ballerina, a gymnast, and a veterinarian. Instead she became a two-time Olympian, a physiotherapist and coach, and an entrepreneur. Running has been a constant in her life since childhood, but events in recent years have given her a new perspective on the sport.

  • We Run 313’s motto is “Connect. Run. Build.” Lance Woods and Joe Robinson founded the social run club to connect “like-minded individuals through running to build a healthier and happier community.” That community is Detroit, which is where the “313” comes from - it’s the Motor City’s area code. We Run 313 has become Detroit’s largest run club in just three years, not only in-person, but also on Strava, where it has 2190 members.

    Joe and Lance are both competitive runners, but the runs that We Run 313 hosts aren’t about competition. As Lance explains, “we're for runners of all levels, all ages, all races, all paces, whatever the case may be. We're a community-based organization that helps people to keep moving and to stay active.”
