Sophie Raworth: running during the lockdown
Play • 24 min

This week we speak with BBC newsreader and journalist Sophie Raworth. Unless you’ve taken the unusual stance of not tuning in to the news in 2020 (in which case, you’re in for a bit of a shock), you’ll be very familiar with Raworth. What you may not know is that the face of BBC news is also a passionate and impressive runner. And this year, as she has navigated the personal and professional stresses of the pandemic, she says running has been her saviour. Ahead of her cover feature in the next issue of Runner's World, she joins us on the podcast to talk lockdown, London and why running is her release valve...

Ep 250 - Russian doping whistleblowers Yuliya and Vitaly Stepanov (Part 2)
Here's Part 2 of the two-part interview with Yuliya Stepanova and Vitaly Stepanov. If you've not listened to Part 1, head back to episode 249 for the first half of the interview. Yuliya is a middle-distance runner who competed for Russia at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio Olympics. She became an informant for WADA. Vitaly worked for the Russian Anti-Doping Agency. Together they exposed the full extent of the state-sponsored doping programme that eventually led to Russia's exclusion at the Olympics and their fleeing to the US to avoid repercussions. With the Russian ban recently lifted by CAS, the issue of doping is again back in the picture. That's why Jody and David spoke with Yuliya and Vitaly about how they went from being a part of the system to attempting to bring it down, the effect it has had on their life and what their plans are for the future.

Episode 144 | Craig Curley
“I’m responsible for my life and what I want to do in this world. And whatever silly thing that I am good at, I’m going to pursue it and not look back. I believe I could be super fast and I don't want to waste those gifts. And that was kind of my moment of, ‘I'm gonna do this running thing.’ Because in the beginning it was really easy to be like, ‘I quit running, I don’t need to run competitively, I don't need to do any of that.’ But when that happened to me, that event, it changed me in the sense that there's lot of people who have different gifts and they don’t use [them]. And I wanted to make sure that I used my gifts because I think if we all use our gifts we could do something really special, not for ourselves, but for our family, and, if we’re really good, we can do something for our community, wherever we live.” This week's episode is one of my favorite conversations that I’ve ever had for the podcast and I am super excited to share it with all of you. Craig Curley was one of most up and coming distance runners in the U.S., from about 2010-2016, clocking a 63-minute half marathon, 2:15 marathon, and some top-10 finishes at national championship races. He hasn’t raced a lot in recent years but two weekends ago he finished third at the Bandera 100K, his first time competing at that distance. Craig, who is 32 years old, is one of the most, humble, hard working, and down to earth people that I’ve ever spoken to and it really comes out in this episode. We caught up a few days before Bandera and hit on a lot of different topics, from the connection Craig feels to the trails and mountains, to his life growing up on a Navajo reservation in Arizona, and how he balances living in the modern world without getting too far away from his Navajo roots. We also discussed his relationship to running and how it’s evolved over the years, not wasting his gifts and talents, serving as a role model for other Native Americans, and a lot more.

Amelia Boone: Elites Have More to Offer Than Just Running - R4R 232
“Running is a very small part of me as a person. So I do think this entire past year has been a great exercise for athletes to embrace all parts of themselves. To realize that you have more to offer than just running. To feel free to speak your mind about it.” — Amelia Boone Love, community, and a strong support network. I think the number one thing I've been seeking all these years is community. Eating disorders are very isolating. They’re diseases that thrive in secrecy, she says. It wasn't until understanding that all those lies and secretiveness were impeding the things that I wanted in life: love, community, and a strong support network. Aligning Actions with Core Values The biggest thing in this past year for Amelia is making life decisions in accordance with the values that are important to her. Number one is community, which is the reason she uprooted herself and I moved to Colorado from California because that’s where the majority of her friend group is. Her advice is listing your core values and the things that are motivating you and then trying to align your actions with that. Something that helped her navigate this was ACT therapy: acceptance and commitment therapy. We're not athletes in a vacuum Running is a very small part of Amelia. She shares that this past year has been a great exercise for athletes to embrace all parts of themselves. What makes you unique apart from running and sports. For her, she’s involved with plenty of other things including being an attorney. Ask yourself– Do you realize that you have more to offer than just running on and like your field? Feel free to speak your mind about it, she says. “Yes, I still run most days, but it's probably third or fourth on my list of things.” Looking ahead “I'm just trying to embrace it as another year of adventure on being okay with the unknown,” Amelia says. The number one thing to focus on right now is just compassion. Compassion for yourself and compassion for others, because everyone is going through different battles right now. And that, to me, is the one thing that we need more of in this world is just total compassion for each other.

She talks to us here about how she discovered her talent for running, and her training for the GB distances. We also talk about her relationship with food, which has been tricky in the past, leading to her periods stopping and discovering she had osteoporosis, along with suffering from a ton of stress fractures. But in the realisation of this, alongside a move from marathon to ultra distances, came a much happier relationship with food and a far happier and healthier outlook. She talks about her love of the ultra distance, and the races she holds close to her heart, and her love generally of trail running. She lets us into the secret of what her absolute favourite ultra is, and she’s got loads of tips for aspiring trail runners here: all very relatable and totally achievable!

Levi Younger: A Holistic Approach to Injury Recovery
*About This Episode:* In this week’s episode, Hillary Allen interviews Levi Younger,  Rolfer and Somatic Therapist. Levi and Hillary discuss the practice of Rolfing, treating Hillary after a textbook healed injury, components of injury recovery, covering the emotional process of recovering from injury and treating the body as a more holistic system. *Episode Highlights:* * Combining Somatic Therapy, Clinical Counseling, and Coaching  * Injury recovery is more than just the physical injury healing * How injuries take a mental toll * You are not a machine, treating your body as one  *Guest Bio – Levi Younger:* Levi comes to running with a background from college track and running 50K and mountain races after college in his home state of Alaska. In 2015, Levi broke his thoracic vertebrae playing men's league hockey leaving him feeling debilitated. After trying so many different methods to help his pain he found Rolfing. Rolfing changed so much for Levi he opened his own practice in Boulder, Colorado in 2017. He has since been able to help athletes suffering from a wide array of pain and injury issues. Levi is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Clinical Counseling at Oregon State University to open a practice that combines Somatic therapy, clinical counseling, and coaching to help people heal from injuries and chronic pain who’ve tried varying treatment options. Rolfing is a proactive manual therapy system created by Dr. Ida Rolf as a diagnostic assessment for the body, utilizing physical touch and neuroscience principles. Instead of chasing symptoms, Rolfing alters the deeper sources of chronic injury and pain. Rolfing is not a massage technique and not another form of deep tissue massage or a way to stretch the fascia.  Rolfing is a comprehensive diagnostic system that views the body in a structural sense and is not painful.    *Read More About Levi Younger or his Clinic Levity Rolfing:* *Website: Clinic *** *Instagram:* *Facebook:*   *Listen to the episode on **Apple Podcasts**, **Spotify**, **Stitcher**, **Google Podcasts**, or on your favorite podcast platform*
