Dr. Vinny Kripalu, an internal medicine doctor who is living the running lifestyle, is on the show to share how he is running the run and walking the walk. During our discussion, Vinny shows how the mind controls our body and decides what we are focusing on. Charlie Barkowski, of Running with Miles, is back to tell us how his trip around the world running six marathon distance runs on six continents in 4 days and 21 hours went. Serena Marie, RD, talks all things Vitamin C, how much you need, and where to find it. Serena and I also discuss our training for the Chicago, NYC, and Philadelphia Marathons.

Dr. Vinny Kripalu showed how the mind controls our body and decides what we are focusing on. Vinny took his experience of “his numbers going up” and a family history of heart disease and cancer as an opportunity to change his ways. Throughout our discussion it became apparent that nutrition, exercise, meditation, sleep, mindset, and being outside with your tribe are key to happy life full of wellness.
The TED Talk mentioned during the discussion with Vinny was presented by Dr. Lissa Rankin MD, titled "The Shocking Truth About Your Health." It can be found HERE.
Charlie epitomizes the amazing experiences you can have when combining the gifts of running and travel, and how to best utilize rewards points to get there. His was certainly the trip of a lifetime! Hear how his body held up, the amazing support he received from runners around the world, and the joy of raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Serena Marie, RD
It’s really important for us to consume Vitamin C, not just when we have a cold. What’s great about the research Serena shares is that consuming extra Vitamin C can help shorten the length of a cold. Some of the best sources for Vitamin C are raw red peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, and oranges.
If you want to check out further research about if consuming extra Vitamin C will diminish the length of a cold, you can check out the following study:
