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.

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. We also learn about Mike’s recent book, Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude, and how Jim Collins wrote the foreword for the book. 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. Philip tells us why he loves trail running and how it’s helped his mental health, enabling him to become a better husband and father.
