The Running for Real Podcast

Dec 23, 2022

Many listeners will recognize themselves in Brodie Sharpe’s analyses of injured runners. As a runner himself, he relates to the ways that runners’ personalities can contribute to injury. As a physiotherapist, he uses that understanding to inform his holistic approach to helping them recover.  If you’re a runner who tends to get injured, this episode is definitely for you. 

Brodie is the host of the Run Smarter podcast, founder and CEO of the Run Smarter series, and author of Run Smarter: Evidence-Based Guidance to Help You Survive & Thrive as a Runner.

AG1 is an easy way to get 75 vitamins, minerals, and whole food source ingredients. It promotes gut health with prebiotics, probiotics, and naturally occurring enzymes; supports your immune system with Vitamin C, zinc, healing mushrooms, and more; provides magnesium to boost energy; and it's packed with superfoods, adaptogens, and antioxidants to help recovery.  It’s simple to make and it tastes good!

This is the time of year when our immune systems can use a boost, not only because it’s cold and flu season, but because with less sunlight, our vitamin D levels drop.

Allbirds’ performance running shoe, the Tree Flyer, is lightweight, super springy, and wildly comfortable, and they’re Tina’s go-to running shoes. They’re her workout shoes, and she’s run three marathons and an ultra in them.  

The Tree Flyer isn’t Allbirds’ only great shoe. The Tree Dasher is not only a running shoe, it’s perfect for daily wear. For water repellent shoes, look no further than the Mizzle series. Allbirds has also introduced plant leather shoes, the Plant Pacers. You can see their complete collection here.
