Strong By Design Podcast

Jul 13, 2022

Most people will never run 26.2 miles. Only a very small percentage of the population are willing to push themselves to that extreme level of endurance. 

Not only is that distance intimidating physically, the mental demand may be even more jaw dropping for any aspiring competitive athletes. 

Today’s guest, Dave Frazier, is a longtime friend of SBD host, Jared Haley, and shares some sound advice when it comes to taking control of your health and training for the world’s most popular foot race, a marathon. 


"The key is to just go slower… If you feel like 'ugh, I’m not just gonna make it' -- you're either going too fast or you've been going so long that you need some fuel to keep going."
- Dave Frazier
