All your injury related questions answered. From how to know which injuries to run through to how to handle the emotional frustration of missing out, today’s episode features a return guest who you all seemed to enjoy in his previous appearance. Physical Therapist, Brad Beer, returns to discuss injuries, rehab, and listening to your pain.
This was a great opportunity to sit down with Brad and chat about such an important topic for all runners. Listeners will get some great information on how to assess your pain; when it’s time to take a break and structure an off-season; and pacing yourself on the road to recovery.
Being a runner himself, Brad understands not only thephysiological aspect of injury, but the emotional and psychological effects ofhaving to sit out races. As such, he has become one of the most sought afterpractitioners in his field.

If you’ve been listening for a while, then you know there’s someone very specific I’ve been working on bringing to the show: Meb Keflezighi. I love hearing his stories, and it seems like everyone always has something positive to say about him.
Today was no exception — I had the pleasure of speaking with his longtime coach and mentor, Bob Larsen. He has coached at almost every level of the sport, all the way from high school students to olympians. He is also the founder of the Mammoth Track Club, where both Meb and Deena Kastor led the way.
We’re joined by Stephanie Marie Howe, thanks to the recommendation of our friend (and previous guest), Lauren Fleshman.
Stephanie has a PhD in Nutrition and has used running as her focus of her research along the years. She has many published papers, and has presented many times over the years about nutrition and how to fuel for runners. As for her athletic achievements, he won Western States in 2014, was the Lake Sonoma runner-up and is of course a record holder in multiple Ultra events, which is pretty impressive in itself.
