The Flourishing Experiment

Come and “party” with Serena Marie, RD, and Kari when they answer questions about chocolate, weight loss, podcasting, and grit. You’ll hear some things never discussed on air before and a lot of giggling.

Celebrate good times, come on! It’s a celebration! As Kool and the Gang sings. We’re celebrating the second birthday  of The Running Lifestyle Show.

Come join me and our go-to, real-food dietitian, Serena Marie, RD, when we answer listeners’ questions and reminisce about our favorites memories from these last two years. It wouldn’t be a show without Serena teaching us something we need to know—and SMRD doesn’t disappoint.

Serena Marie, RD, talks about what chocolate to eat (hint: non-alkali cocoa, > 70% chocolate, and one other super helpful tip) and what is better for weight loss when it comes to sprinting and strength training. In honor of our “birthday”, I also get her riled up over one of the things that makes her “batty” when it comes to nutrition. Think BMI.


Next week’s show is about two secrets from a “running dynasty” high school running coach and father of an Olympic Trials runner, Chris Ramsey.
