Hey guys this is Trevor and I’m currently in Switzerland for the Jungfrau Marathon -which is a brutal but absolutely gorgeous race in the Swiss Alps.
This episode is going to be a bit unusual. You will hear a recording of a motivational talk I gave, to a group of non-runners, about what running marathons has taught me about life.
In the quick tip segment Coach Angie explains how to successfully taper for a race, because many runners go through “taper madness”. Enjoy!
I first gave this talk to a local Rotary Club luncheon when I lived in South East Missouri. The recording you will hear on this podcast episode is from the second time I gave the talk -which was to a group of young men between the ages of 16-21. It was recorded in 2016. I used to go every Tuesday night and hang out with these guys and speak to them.
You can tell by my presentation that I was trying to entertain and inspire, not necessarily inspiring them to be runners, although I did take some of them out running from time to time but to inspire them to live life more intentionally and fully. Below are the powerpoint slides that go with the talk.
Thank you for listening!
