It's official ...

I've turned into a podcast junkie! I don't know how it happened because I was always the one who never listened to anything but music when I trained (FYI: I never ride my bike outside with headphones on). I couldn't imagine listening to talk radio or anything talk while training. BORING! Or so I thought. Seriously, I think I was abducted by aliens. First I changed my eating, then I changed up my training, now no music? WTH?

I especially enjoy running while I listen to podcasts. Some of my favorites to listen to are:

  • America's Angriest Trainer
  • Fit Fat Fast
  • Fat Burning Man
  • 10 Minute Marathon Training
  • Relentless Roger and the Caveman Doctor
  • PRS Fit Nation
  • RunnersConnect
  • Smarter Science of Slim
  • Rock Star Triathlete Academy
  • Endurance Planet
  • Nutrition Diva's Quick & Dirty Tips
  • Get Fit Guy's Quick & Dirty Tips

You can find all of them on iTunes.

Now I have a question for some of you audiobook nerds out there. I'm thinking I'd like to listen to audiobooks while I run but I'm somewhat confused with all the different apps. I have Amazon, Kindle, Audible, iBook, and a few others already on my ipad/ipods but I'm not sure which one is the best. Can I buy an audiobook and then put it on my shuffle? Will it fit? When you buy an audiobook, can you put it on multiple devices? I have so many questions. I think I'm making it harder than it really is.

And since I'm all about changing things up, the blog is not spared either. I added a neat little feature that I heard about on a podcast (see how much I'm learning listening to podcasts?) on this here blog and it
s called SpeakPipe. Take a look over to the ride hand side, middle of the page. If you are like me, with very limited amount of time to read other bloggers blogs and then leave a comment, you can now leave a voice message and it will be sent to my email. You have to have a microphone on whatever device you are using and that's it. Easy peasy!

What are some of you favorite podcasts or audiobooks to listen to when you run or ride the trainer inside? I'm always open to recommendations.

Much love and peace out!


  1. I may need to look into audio books for may come in handy for my upcoming marathon training.

  2. Hey - I see you haven't updated in awhile but figured I'd say hello anyway. I felt compelled, as I'm in the same place you must have been - 34 marathons behind me and ready to move over to triathlon - that is, Ironman.

    I'm also a Ben Greenfield Fitness fan, although I haven't listened to the Rock Star Triathlon one before because I wasn't really into biking or swimming. I'll have to check it out!
