#434: Women Runners Tell Tales of Their Recent FKT (Fastest Known Times) Runs
Play episode · 1 hr 12 min

Sarah and Tish talk to two adventurous women who each completed a FKT (Fastest Known Time), including Liz Anjos, who set a women’s record for doing the Appalachian Trail (AT) from south to north, and Elisa Laverty, who nearly beat her ultrarunner husband’s FKT on the same loop! Live vicariously listening to:

  • Liz talk about putting in 18-20 hours per day on the AT, despite developing severe shin splints on Day 3 (of 52!);
  • Liz share feeling apprehensive and overwhelmed every morning—and exalted every evening;
  • Elisa detail how a summer of riding a gravel bike revived her running mojo;
  • Elisa recount covering the final 3.5 miles—and 4,000’ of elevation gain!—of the 43-mile loop; and,
  • Elisa encourage everyone to “build an epic route” for themselves.

In the introduction, Sarah details life in smoke-choked Portland. Liz, the first of the two FKT’ers, joins the conversation at 16:01.

134. Tim Brown, Co-Founder of AllBirds
Tim Brown once had a thriving career as a pro soccer player. But the New Zealand native had a curiosity about merino wool and a passion for design that had him walking away from one career in favor of another, founding Allbirds in 2016 with friend Joey Zwillinger. For episode 134, he gives me the lowdown on how it all happened, creating a smarter sneaker that we know today as the wool runner. He talks to me about the brand's original Kickstarter that caught on fire but resulted in the "worst year of his life," and the big lessons he's learned along the way to growing a thriving company. Fun fact: Today, Allbirds — a once-e-comm only brand — has 20+ stores globally, selling much more than a single sneaker. Just last week, they launched their debut clothing collection including T-shirts, crewnecks, and cardigans.

Dr. Mariza Snyder
236: The Truth about Metabolic Dysfunction and How to Address It Head On w/ Dr. Casey Means
If You Want To Understand Your Metabolism Better You Should: * Understand which of your lifestyle practices are contributing to the vicious cycle of insulin resistance * Learn what your body needs to process energy effectively by continuously monitoring your blood glucose levels * Implement simple behavioral changes by increasing your accountability and awareness of your bodies levels Did you know that almost 90% of Americans deal with some type of metabolic dysfunction? Metabolic dysfunction is, by far, one of the biggest epidemics in this country and can impact everything from your mood to the health of your immune system. However, it doesn't have to be this way! It is possible to monitor which foods are sabotaging your insulin, metabolism, and energy levels so that you can limit your risk of chronic illness and start to heal your insulin sensitivity. Taking Hold of Your Metabolism and Your Health with Dr. Casey Means Dr. Casey Means is a Stanford trained MD, biomedical researcher, and surgeon-turned-metabolic health evangelist. As Chief Medical Officer of pioneering digital health startup Levels, she’s leveraging breakthrough technology to solve metabolic dysfunction. Dr. Casey is passionate about scaling the behavioral changes necessary to create conditions in the body that allow for thriving metabolic health, stable glucose levels, and less inflammation. By merging what we know about medicine with digital tools and products, Dr. Casey is bringing root cause medicine into the digital era. Why Metabolic Health Matters The truth is, no part of your body is safe from metabolic disease if you do not treat it right.. The good news is that your body can become metabolically fit again with the right behavioral changes. These changes are low hanging fruit that can help you control your insulin and get on top of your symptoms. It is not just food that impacts your glucose levels. Food timing, sleep, exercise, and stress all play major roles in your metabolic health. These factors are also closely linked to many chronic illnesses and show the importance of making your metabolic health something that you care about as early as possible. Continuous Glucose Monitoring of the Future Traditional glucose monitoring systems have many limitations and do not provide a holistic overview of all of the varied reasons that your glucose could be spiking. This is why Dr. Casey and her team at Levels have developed software to help people track their numbers and find actionable solutions. Dr. Casey believes that everyone can uplevel their lives by getting their metabolic health in check. By tracking and measuring how your own unique body reacts to the environment that you place it in, you can start to take action and improve your metabolic and overall health. Do you or someone you know struggle with metabolic dysfunction, insulin sensitivity, or chronic inflammation? Share this episode with them and let me know what actionable behavioral change you will start implementing into your routine in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “We want everyone to understand what is going on in their own metabolism and be able to act on that so they can move the needle in the right direction.” (7:23) “We have trillions of cells in our bodies; we are made up entirely of cells. That's the reality. And every single cell, for it to work, it needs energy to function. It needs a usable form of energy. And that is created from our metabolism.” (16:48) “The beauty is, while we can move sort of in the wrong direction on this pathway, we can also move in the right direction. It's not a one-way street, it is a spectrum that we can move back and forth on.” (20:43) “We can go out and take a 2-mile walk and know exactly how many steps that is giving us. And we don't have that for a meal. We don't know that if we eat this meal, this is the impact it had on our body. So that is what excites me so much about continuous glucose monitoring, finally, we can close the loop and create a one to one relationship between this food I ate and what it did to me.” (34:22) “We have created software that helps people get to the root of all of these things, get to the root of what is working for them, what's not working for them, and be able to actually make those behavior changes. (47:18) In This Episode * Discover what metabolism is and why it plays one of the most central roles in our body and our bodies function (16:10) * Why continuously monitoring your blood glucose is the gold standard for understanding how your metabolism and blood sugar work (22:08) * The four things other than food that are dramatically impacting your glucose levels (26:44) * The most exciting ways that continuous blood glucose monitoring can impact your health accountability (33:20) * Foundational ways that you can minimize glucose spikes after a meal and keep your levels in check through food (39:52) * How Levels can help you transition to healthier lifestyle behaviors (46:55) Resources Mentioned: Organifi Green Juice 15% Off Shop Page Levels Health Metabolic Health Levels Health Blog Follow Levels on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Follow Dr. Casey on Instagram | Twitter Related Episodes: Episode 192: How to Makeover Your Metabolism for Long-Term Success with Mark Sisson Episode 223: The Number One Hormone to Watch Out for At 40+ (Hint: It’s Not Estrogen) Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

Week 1: Ditch the disguise (because diet culture is sneaky AF)
EVERY DAY, WE’RE SERVED UP THE POISON PUNCH THAT IS DIET CULTURE. WHAT TO EAT AND HOW TO EXERCISE TO LOSE WEIGHT. WHICH BODIES ARE ACCEPTABLE, AND WHICH BODIES AREN’T. THIS DIET. THAT DIET. BODY SHAME. FASTING. MACRO TRACKING. MORE BODY SHAME. And every holiday season, this poison punch gets spiked. New year, new you? More like new you, same BS. Spoiler alert: This poison punch isn’t going away any time soon. So, we’ve created the antidote for it. BADASS LADY GANG, MEET ‘TIS THE SEASON TO DITCH DIET CULTURE. It’s week one and today, Kayla and Kelly are talking about how to ditch the disguise (because diet culture is sneaky AF). THIS FREE 8-WEEK LONG COURSE WAS CREATED BY BADASS LADY GANG NYC CO-LEADER KAYLA REYNOLDS, MS TO EMPOWER YOU TO NAVIGATE THE HOLIDAY SEASON IN A WAY THAT'S TRULY HEALTHY -- MIND, BODY, SPIRIT -- NO PUNCH NECESSARY. Every week we’ll explore a specific theme and equip you with concrete tools that you can use to jingle all the way to a memorable holiday. Here’s how we’re going to break it down: * Week 1: Ditch the disguise (because diet culture is sneaky AF) * Week 2: Diet is a noun and food isn’t the enemy - let’s bust some myths * Week 3: Detox your judgments… your liver and kidneys will do the rest * Week 4: People suck!!! Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge their projections * Week 5: Breakthrough the shit - if you want different, you need to do different * Week 6: Food isn’t medicine (and you consume way more than what you eat) * Week 7: No one knows you like you do! How to listen to your body in a noisy world * Week 8: What if self-love wasn’t the goal? Let’s start with self-care And here’s what’s in store: * A newsletter every MONDAY morning introducing the weekly theme, including journaling prompts and a challenge to put your knowledge into practice * A NEW podcast episode released every MONDAY morning (via the Run, Selfie, Repeat podcast. Available wherever you love to listen to your favorite podcasts!) * A Group Zoom call every WEDNESDAY 8:00 pm-9:00 pm ET (5:00 pm-6:00 pm PT) to discuss the weekly theme, and our experience with the journal prompt, challenge, and anything else that came up, in a safe space * Journal prompts available in our private, online community ‘Tis the Season To Ditch Diet Culture group (CLICK HERE to join) and on the Badass Lady Gang Instagram page. Whether this is the first time you’ve started to think about the ways in which diet culture has impacted you, whether you’re skeptical that ditching diet culture is possible, whether you’ve done every diet in the book and are ready to leave it all behind, or whether you’ve never fallen for the false promises of diet culture but are sick and tired of all the noise, this course is for you! This course is meant to meet you wherever you’re at in your journey towards ditching diet culture, reclaiming the word diet, and making peace with yourself and your body. We want to make sure that this course is as valuable as possible for you, so we want to dedicate one to two of our weekly podcast episodes to answering your burning questions about diet, diet culture, nutrition, body shame, dealing with people, making peace with food, being kind to yourself, and anything else, really! We’ll also try to bring some of these questions to our group calls to help us have more meaningful discussions. To submit your questions, CLICK HERE to submit your question. MEET KAYLA REYNOLDS, MS Kayla Reynolds is a late-twenty something New York City transplant, originally from Montreal, Canada, and the co-leader of Badass Lady Gang’s NYC chapter. When she’s not dancing with her BALG, she’s working on checking off walking every street of Manhattan by foot, exploring one neighborhood at a time, and determined to find NYC’s best cold brew and restaurants along the way. As a child and eventually teenager, Kayla joined every team sport imaginable, and cheerleading quickly became her passion. Growing up very active and also experiencing many digestive issues, she became interested in nutrition and the impact that food had on the way she felt and performed. Paired with her love of all things science, she eventually chose to move to NYC to pursue her Master of Science in Human Nutrition at Columbia University. It was there, alongside her own life experiences where she realized that the food that made it to our plates is only a sliver of the health equation. Over time, her passion for mental health and wellbeing grew, and she began to see our “diet” as more than just food, but everything that we consume -- social media, advertisement, relationships, self-talk, … and so much more. Now, when it comes to nutrition, she believes that our thoughts about food, our bodies, and ourselves impact us more than any one food we eat (or don’t), and that having a healthy, balanced, low-stress relationship with food is most important. Food doesn’t need to be so complicated. So, she’s dedicated to helping people ditch diet culture and lead full, fulfilling lives, which can’t happen on an empty stomach.

97 - Undercover with Investigator "Pete Paxton"
“The worst thing that I have ever read about a serial killer doing to another human being is being done to animals, but on a mass scale.” Our guest today is an undercover animal investigator, and in today’s show, he reveals the unthinkable. From his decades-long undercover work in the companion animal and factory farms businesses, Pete Paxton educates us on the horrendous and bizarre abuse that gets passed off as “just another day on the job” in these industries. Our commerce-driven society has conditioned us to believe that if we don’t directly kill animals (as in the cases of pets, milk, and eggs), we’re not harming them. This mentality is seriously flawed. Listen in for a heavy dose of reality, and learn what you can do to help correct these injustices. What we discuss in this episode: - Why the commercial breeding of dogs means dead dogs in shelters - Benefits of getting a dog from a shelter - Understanding the laws surrounding the sale of companion animals - Companion Animal Protection Society website: https://www.caps-web.org/ - His undercover work in factory farms - Pete’s new book, “Rescue Dogs” Connect with Switch4Good - Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ2toqAmlQpwR1HDF_KKfGg - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Switch4Good/ - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/switch4good/ - Twitter: https://twitter.com/SwitchForGood - Website: switch4good.org - Support Our Cause: https://switch4good.org/support-us/
