MTA Epic Summer Conquest!

Mobile podcasting studio & running gear trailer.

Mobile podcasting studio & running gear trailer.

We just embarked on a 2 month trip, which I am calling our Epic Summer Conquest.

I call it that because our camper is a Gulf Stream Conquest and Angie thinks I overuse the word epic, which makes me want to use it more haha.

Our plans (conquest goals) are to see family, run races, visit national parks and make amazing memories for our kids! Continue Reading →

A Rewarding Experience as a Race Volunteer

IMG_3359 (1)-2My first time volunteering meant more than cutting up fruit and handing out water during a race supporting cancer research.

Billy. Paul. Bob.

They are among the millions of Americans who have succumbed to cancer. Each of my aforementioned friends was taken way too soon. Of those three, only Bob would live long enough to ever meet his grandchildren. The others passed well before what we would consider middle age.

Those whose lives have been ravaged by cancer were on my mind a few Saturdays ago as I volunteered at The Purdue Challenge, a 5K run-walk which benefits cancer research at the university. Continue Reading →

Streets of Gold 5K Virtual Race

Grant Brown 2006 - 2013

Grant Brown 2006 – 2013

Just like you, Grant Brown loved to run. Two summers ago, Grant was attending a supervised day camp for kids his age where swimming was part of the schedule and the unthinkable happened.

Grant is now running on Streets of Gold and a scholarship for New Covenant School in Arlington, Massachusetts (where he would have been a first-grader) has been established in his name.

The Grant Brown Scholarship is in place to help those students and their families who may be distracted by financial worry to focus more on learning, serving and building integrity.

Virtual 5k this Saturday Continue Reading →

MTA Podcast Featured on Greatist.com

greatistGreatist.com rounded up the 19 Best Health and Fitness Podcasts of All Time and guess who made the list!

From the article . . .

“The best takeaway from this podcast is the mondo dose of can-do attitude; it’s a feeling that lingers long after the theme music stops singing that you’re “well on your way.”

What an honor to be mentioned along with Jillian Michaels, Rich Roll, Able James, Dave Asprey, Ben Greenfield and other amazing podcasters.

Thank you @maritihart and the great team at Greatist.com!
