This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Liz Ferro, Founder and CEO of Girls With Sole. I was fascinated by Liz when I saw an online clip about her running the Great Wall Marathon in China, regarded by many as the most difficult marathon in the world.

Liz is also the author of her personal memoir, Finish Line Feeling. Liz lives a life trying to share the personal empowerment she's found in running with some young ladies she knows need it most.

Girls With Sole - Use free fitness and wellness programs to empower the minds, bodies and souls of girls who are at-risk or have experienced abuse of any kind.

Finish Line Feeling - You can purchase Liz's book on Amazon.

Memorial Day Interview With 20 Year Navy Veteran John Mayros - Episode 12

I recent had the pleasure of meeting my long time online friend John Mayros in person. John and I met when we both ran in the 2017 Run the Bluegrass half marathon. During one of our conversations John mentioned that he had served in the Navy for 20 years.

  • What serving in the Navy meant to John and how it has shaped the life he lives today.

  • John talks about his running streak which will hit its one year anniversary on Memorial Day.
  • John compares his running journey to being a motivational speaker.

The Flying Pig 2017 Recap - Having a Pace Chart For Your Life - Episode 11

I completed my 7th half marathon the first weekend in May. Cincinnati was an exciting venue to run in. There were thousands of runners and even more spectators making it an adrenaline run of a race! And - it was my fastest half marathon ever. I was priviledged to run for Michael Stangelo - a United States marine who sadly lost his life to the PTSD he suffered through after returning from Iraq. In doing so I got to represent a great organization - 22 Too Many. It was also a weekend of meeting up with many friends, and creating some lifelong memories. That is often the greatest part of these race weekends. Enjoy my recap of the Flying Pig 2017.

What you'll hear:

  • Thank you to my friend Kimberly Yenser for sponsoring this episode through my Patreon Page
  • Those stupid 26.2 stickers - which I proudly display on the back of my car
  • Running for Michael Stangelo
  • 22 Too Many
  • The 8-minute mile health insurance discount - I don't get one by the way. 
  • Passion - we find it, it doesn't find us. And it's usually found when we tackle pain and suffering. 
  • Having a pace chart for life.

Running the Flying Pig Half-Marathon for Michael Stangelo_22 Too Many_Episode 9

On Sunday, May 7, 2017, I will have the honor to run for one of America's fallen heroes. In 2016, Michael Stangelo, a United States marine, lost his battle with the demons that haunted him as a result of his tour in the Iraq war. He became one of the 22 American military veterans who take their own lives every day as a result of darkness that follows them home from their military service. Running the Flying Pig half-marathon in his memory and to promote awareness around mental illness, especially as it pertains to our veterans, is a priviledge.
