Runified Podcast

The Runified Podcast is where we come together and talk with runners about their stories. We believe that anyone who runs is a runner, no matter the pace or distance. We also believe that runners are more than just runners. With these beliefs, the Runified Podcast will tell stories about what makes runners who they are, beyond the training and racing. Our hope is that these stories will change the way runners of all abilities think about running, and motivate you to live your own story with endurance, strength, and joy.

Shelly Bush lives in northern Utah and is a mom to two boys, a wife, and works for a local school district. In her youth, Shelly hated to run, avoiding it all costs by participating in sports that didn’t require running.

On this Veterans Day-themed episode of the Runified Podcast, we talk with two runners associated with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), an organization with the mission of enriching the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. We first talk with Mike Erwin, the founder of Team RWB, who graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, served as an intelligence officer in Iraq and Afghanistan, and taught cadets at West Point. Mike has completed dozens of marathons and ultramarathons and shares helpful training advice and encouragement.

Host Matt Sorenson then speaks with Philip Swift, an Army veteran living in Houston Texas, about how he discovered Team RWB and serving our country in Iraq. Philip shares about how he got lazy after getting out of the army, and how Team RWB has not only helped him physically but how it has also helped him re-engage with people, becoming more social and making quality friends he can count on. We also talk about how Philip’s running community helped his family recover from Hurricane Harvey.

Iain Nelson currently resides in Syracuse, New York. When he's not running or training for his next ultra you could find him on a golf course, reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. In the early 2000's, Iain started running a few miles to stay in shape while living in Houston, TX. It wasn't until after 2008, after he moved to Detroit, MI that Iain began participating in races as a purely social endeavor and to spend time with friends. In the podcast, Iain shares his story of taking a giant leap from half marathons as a way to socialize to a different type of competitive race, ultra marathons.

Our guests also share running advice and challenge our listeners to join a community and to base your self-worth and body image on your talents and strength, not the shape of your body.
