The Endurance Specific Podcast

Your best will never be enough unless it’s always enough – David Roche

Today I have my run coach David Roche back on the podcast talking about their book (which is available now) which in my mind is required reading for all of us endurance athletes. The book might be using running and being a happy runner… you can just change running for Triathlete or cyclist or whatever. Charlotte and I got lucky and got an advanced copy… and Charlotte even got a quote on the back cover of the book! I’m so thankful we go an advance copy as it greatly helped me leading into my 110k race here in Whistler and then for my recent 100 miler. It wasn’t about Part two of the book on running principles but part one… running happy principles. A major one about self-acceptance and ultimately the results matter but they don’t matter.

As always enjoy.


Momento Mori, why talking about death matters!

What’s really important to get results

What self-acceptance means and how it helps

The reason to decide now!

Why hitting your life performance goals can leave you depressed and not fulfilled

Cutting others and yourself some slack


The dangers of room temperature

Why the parts that suck are super important parts of the journey

How happiness is found in the atmosphere of growth

Being enough doesn’t depend on a race result

The striving for the result matters more than the result. the striving is the fun part.

And  more
