Roberta Groner - World Class Runner/Full Time Nurse/Mother of Three - Episode 96

Two Fit Crazies & A Microphone Podcast

Episode 96 – Roberta Groner – World Class Runner – Full Time Nurse – Mother of 3

In Episode 96 the Fit Crazies have the honor of rapping with the ridiculously fast and remarkably humble Super Mom, Roberta Groner, age 41, of Randolph, NJ. Literally, just 2 hours off the plane home, Roberta gives us the low down on her phenomenal, news making 2:29:06, 5th place performance against a world class field at the Rotterdam Marathon.

To put it simply, Roberta has a story for the ages. After competitive high school and, albeit shortened, collegiate careers, running went away. Roberta spent the next decade building her career in nursing and starting a family. But a flame was rekindled after joining some office cohorts and running the Pittsburg Half Marathon just 10 years ago. This led to a marathon in Chicago and an impressive 3-hour 12-minute (3:12) debut. But she was just getting started, a Sub 3 hour run in her second marathon was followed by races in the 2:40’s and then a true burst onto the scene with her 2:37 victory at the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon in 2016. Just Flying!!!!

All of this, along with a 2:30:38, 3rd place finish at the California International Marathon in 2017 has stamped Roberta’s place among the nation’s and world’s elites.

In fact, we’d bet that if the 41-year-old, full time nurse, divorced mother of three had rubbed a lamp and was granted running wishes, Roberta probably would have sold herself short in what she wished for.

What’s it like to run a 2:29 and an IAAF/Olympic Standard?

At 41 years of age, while still working full time and a divorced mother of three, how does she fit it all in?

What are the differences in training blocks as she continues to grow as a runner?

What is it like working with a new coach in Steve Magness?

Do her boys know how cool their mom is?  

What are her nutrition and recovery routines like?

What is her advice for and/or secret to success?

And most importantly; What’s Next???? #KFG

 

Whatever your role in athletics or fitness or life, Roberta’s story is not to be missed!

“...fitness is the stepping stone toward the other result.”  “...physical therapy...the end goal is to be an athlete again, not just rehab…”  -Dr. Sebastian Gonzales     

 

In Episode 95 of Two Fit Crazies & a Microphone podcast, we had a blast talking with Dr. Sebastian Gonzales of Huntington Beach, California. Dr. Gonzales, an accomplished Sports Chiropractor and Human Movement Specialist, shares how his experiences rehabilitating childhood injuries lead him to re-evaluate the goals of physical therapy. Dr. Gonzales believes that we first need to examine why we believe we are injured or why we believe we “can’t” do something. Only then, we can begin to “unravel the yarn” and work towards standing and lasting results.  Dr. Gonzales also offers a unique perspective on the state of therapy and the way in which you should view rehabilitating injuries. Dr. Gonzales also gives out some awesome tips from his latest book, I Will Beat Back Pain as well as awesome advice from his podcast, RESTORING HUMAN MOVEMENT!

Chandler Walker - Stone Age Fuel/"Chanslogic"/Culture of Care - Episode 89

Episode 89 

Chandler Walker - Stone Age Fuel/“Chanslogic”/Culture of Care     

 “The one thing that people will never forget is how you make them feel.”  -Chandler Walker   

In Episode 89, the Two Fit Crazies had a blast with Chandler Walker who “ZOOMed” in from a very cold and windy Reno, Nevada. Chandler, the mastermind behind “Chanslogic,” the founder of Stone Age Fuel, and the creator of Culture of Care, shares his amazing story of how growing up with 5 sisters and a degree in biochemistry and microbiology lead him to be a self-proclaimed “Health Detective.” In college, Chandler made startling discoveries about what was “really” in the supplements being offered to the public and traveled the nation giving seminars revealing the truth behind the labels. Chandler, now compelled to educate the masses, created his 5 Pillars of health to help his largely female-based clientele take action and take control of their lives. Through Chandler’s 8-week courses that focus on cognitive behavior therapy and an in-depth approach to disrupt unhealthy behaviors, he is making huge waves in the health and fitness industry!
