  • As the creator and host of the podcast For the Long Run, Jonathan Levitt unpacks the “why” behind runners’ ambitions. As he says, “I'm not interested in, ‘Oh, talk to me about your splits and tell me about your training.’ I want to know who you are, what you care about, and how you can help other people.” He hopes that by sharing his own running journey, from his pursuit of breaking three hours in the marathon to trail running and chasing a five-minute mile, he’ll encourage others to step out of their comfort zones and pursue their goals.

    Thank you to 2before, Becoming a Sustainable Runner, and Tracksmith for sponsoring this episode.

    2before is a natural sports performance superfood made from New Zealand Blackcurrant berries, which boast exceptionally high levels of antioxidants called anthocyanins. They’ve been proven to improve athletic performance by increasing blood flow, managing inflammation, and strengthening immunity.

    Over 10 years ago, the 2before co-founders were part of a team from the New Zealand Plant and Food Research Institute that first discovered that blackcurrants have benefits for exercise. 2before is a natural, simple and delicious way to boost your pre-workout nutrition, so you can get more out of the work you put in.

They supported Running for Real in creating our RED-S: Realize. Reflect. Recover program.

  • Jackie Hoffman is from the Garfield Park neighborhood, on Chicago’s West Side. It’s only three miles from the trendy West Loop, but as Jackie says, it’s “the other side of America.” The West Loop is known for its restaurant scene, while Garfield Park doesn’t even have a grocery store. The average life expectancy for West Loop residents is 85; it’s 67 in Garfield Park.

    That statistic is personal for Jackie. Worried by his mother’s unhealthy lifestyle as she approached that age, he created a diet and exercise plan for her. Then, encouraged by its success, he expanded his outreach. He founded Peace Runners 773, a non-profit that brings awareness to holistic health and wellbeing while creating safe spaces for movement in underserved communities.

    Thank you to Precision Fuel & Hydration, Allbirds, and AG1 for sponsoring this episode.

Tina used their electrolytes and fuel when she finished first female and third overall at the Bryce Canyon 50 Miler. You can use their free Fuel & Hydration planner to understand how much carb, fluid, and sodium you need for your key runs.

    If you have more questions, Precision offers free video consultations. Their Athlete Support crew will answer your race nutrition questions and act as a sounding board for your fueling strategy. No hard-sell, just an experienced and friendly human who knows the science and is full of practical advice on how to nail your race nutrition. You can book a call here.

    Once you know what you need to run your best, you can go here to get 15% off their range of multi-strength electrolytes and fuel.

    Allbirds looks at everything through a sustainability lens; it’s at the core of who they are as a company and the products they create. Their performance running shoe, the Tree Flyer, is lightweight, super springy, and wildly comfortable, and they’re Tina’s go-to running shoes. The Tree Dasher is not only a running shoe, it’s perfect for daily wear. You might also want to check out the Plant Pacers, made from plant leather.

    Use this link, and you’ll get a free pair of socks! Just add them to your order, and when you use this link, it will take off the price at the end.

    AG1 is the daily Foundational Nutrition supplement that delivers comprehensive nutrients to support whole-body health.

    Thank you to our sponsor, Dri Seats!

    What do you do when you finish a run or workout, you’re hot and sweaty, and you have to get into your car? Put a towel over your seat and try to anchor it under the headrest, only to have it fall down as you’re driving? Perch on the very edge of your seat to try to minimize contact with it? Neither of those options keeps your car clean, not to mention that they can be dangerous.

    Dri Seat waterproof seat covers can be installed and removed in seconds; they have a slip-resistant backing that keeps them in place; and they won’t scratch, scuff, stain or discolor your seats (and neither will your sweat!). They’re machine washable and sized for all vehicles, from compact cars to trucks.

  • Colson Smith has been in the public eye since he was a child. When he joined the cast of Coronation Street 13 years ago, he became part of a national institution. As a star of the iconic TV show and a host of the hit podcast The Sofa Cinema Club, alongside his Corrie co-stars Ben Price and Jack P. Shepherd, he’s under constant scrutiny by the press and social media.

    When the world went into lockdown three years ago, he seized the opportunity to do something for himself away from the tabloid glare and started running. He ran his first marathon last month, and says, without hesitation, that running has changed his life.

  • A lot has happened since Kara Goucher was last on the podcast, three years ago. In 2022, the World Championships silver medalist and two-time Olympian was diagnosed with repetitive exercise dystonia, a rare neurological disorder. To prevent her symptoms from becoming worse, she’s had to drastically reduce her running, putting an end to her competitive career.

    This year, however, brought much better news: her memoir, "The Longest Race: Inside the Secret World of Abuse, Doping, and Deception on Nike’s Elite Running Team", debuted at number 7 on The New York Times’ bestseller list. She’s also launched a podcast with Des Linden, "Nobody Asked Us", where they share their takes on all things running.

  • Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be the partner of someone who’s about to run across Africa? Alice Light, an ultra runner herself, knows. Her partner, Deo, is embarking on a run from Cape Town to London on July 24th.

    Most people will never be in the position of supporting a loved one who’s taking on an epic journey across two continents and 16 countries, but you can support anyone in any endeavor, no matter how big or small. As Alice says, “We’re stronger together. And the journey is much more fun if we’re not alone.”

    You can learn more about Deo’s Cape Town to London run on GoFundMe.

    Thank you to GotSneakers?, Becoming a Sustainable Runner, and Allbirds for sponsoring this episode.

    GotSneakers? makes it socially and financially rewarding to contribute to a circular economy with their FREE sneaker recycling program.

    As runners, we go through a lot of shoes, but many of them that we consider “done” still have life for others. In the U.S. alone, at least 200 million pairs of shoes and sneakers wind up in landfills each year, where they can take 30-40 years to decompose. Meanwhile, more than 600 million people worldwide don’t even own a pair of shoes. When you join the GotSneakers? community, you’ll be making a global impact AND you’ll earn money for the shoes that you send them.

    Go here to get started!

    Are you a runner? Do you care about the planet you run on? Would you like to use running to change the world for the better?

    Becoming a Sustainable Runner will show you how.

    Becoming a Sustainable Runner, by Tina Muir and Zoë Rom, is a practical guide for runners of all abilities and backgrounds who want to take meaningful action to protect our planet through their love of the sport. It’s available for pre-order through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshop.org, Waterstones UK, Target, and many independent bookstores.

    Allbirds looks at everything through a sustainability lens; it’s at the core of who they are as a company and the products they create. Their performance running shoe, the Tree Flyer, is lightweight, super springy, and wildly comfortable, and they’re Tina’s go-to running shoes. The Tree Dasher is not only a running shoe, it’s perfect for daily wear. You might also want to check out the Plant Pacers, made from plant leather.

  • Martinus Evans wants everyone to embrace the joys of running at their own pace. He runs races from 5K to the marathon, but, as he says, “Our lives don't depend on what place we finish the race in. So if that isn't the case, then why take it so seriously?”

    He created a group where he would feel at home, the Slow AF Run Club, an online community with over 25,000 members that he describes as “the Facebook for the Back of the Pack.” The Slow AF Run Club book is coming out next week, providing information and inspiration for anyone who wants to run, at any speed.

    Thank you to Athletic Greens, Tracksmith, and Becoming a Sustainable Runner for sponsoring this episode.

It promotes gut health with prebiotics, probiotics, and naturally occurring enzymes; supports your immune system with Vitamin C, zinc, healing mushrooms, and more; provides magnesium to boost energy; and it's packed with superfoods, adaptogens, and antioxidants to help recovery.

    Tracksmith is an independent running brand inspired by a deep love of the sport. For years the brand has elevated running wear using best-in-class materials and timeless silhouettes that perform at the highest level and can be worn everyday, not just for running.

    Tracksmith helps the environment by making comfortable, durable clothes that will last for years, rather than winding up in the landfill, but that’s not the only contribution they make. They supported Running for Real in creating our RED-S: Realize. Reflect. Recover program. They help athletes who are trying to make the Olympic trials, and they offer scholarships for creatives to work on their crafts. They also have lots of events - Tina will be hosting events with them at the Boston and London marathons.

    If you’re a new customer, go here and use the code TINANEW at checkout to get $15 off your order of $75 or more. Returning customers can use the code TINAGIVE, and Tracksmith will give you free shipping and donate 5% of your order to TrackGirlz.

  • There’s no good answer to this week’s For Real-Isode. Would you rather… have an ingrown toenail or no toenail?
