HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH RUNNING

If you want to be as great as you can be at something… you need to love that something. Check out this video I made with Catherine Li and Nike Running. We’ll try to give you some of the coaching, inspiration and motivation you need to start running… and start a long term relationship with the sport. Hope you enjoy the video and if you do… please like, comment, share, subscribe, go for a run, and watch again.

HOW TO RUN ON THE BEACH

Running on the beach can be an awesome experience. But running on the beach the wrong way can be worse than sand in your mouth. (Anakin knows what I’m talking about.) Anyway, check out this video I made with artist and surfing superstar Cayla Moore for Nike Running and then hit the beach running. I hope you enjoy it! And feel free to follow… like… and share if you do.

Cheers,

A Run to Remember

There is so much about this run that I can’t remember. There is so much about this run I don’t know. I can’t remember how many miles it was. I can’t remember the pace I ran. I don’t know what my heart rate was. I don’t know what the cadence was.

Power output… I don’t know it. Calories burned… don’t know that either. Elevation gain… no idea.

But I do remember being happy. And I remember how beautiful Central Park was that night with the snow falling. I can remember how cold it was outside. I can remember how warm I felt inside. I remember being thankful that I could run. I remember hoping that I would never forget this run that night.

I can’t remember so much about this run. But I remember everything that matters.

This is about running. This is not about running.

HOW TO RUN WITH YOUR DOG

Yes, running is awesome. And yes, dogs are awesome. So, it just makes sense to try and share with people how running with your dog can be beyond awesome. Check out this video I did with Nike Running and Keely Henninger of the Nike Trail Team. Hope you enjoy it! And feel free to share, like, comment… and go for a run with your dog.
