On this week's episode, we have Dr. Kyle Longest as our guest. Kyle is a Professor of Sociology, a husband, a father, and an avid runner for the last 5 years. He talks about reaching some of the ultimate highs in a runner's journey, including breaking the 3-hour marathon barrier and honoring his father by fulfilling a lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon. We also discuss the valleys he's endured from battles with overtraining, pelvic fractures and developing an unhealthy relationship with food, fitness and body image. Through it all Kyle has been able to reflect and gain some truly valuable insights on improving as a runner and being a more complete person. Kyle has recently begun to share these insights through coaching runners, helping them achieve their own goals.
