Tweetable Quotes

“I just want to make sure I’m so well prepared that I’m doing a service to my listeners so that they have an enjoyable conversation to listen to.” (10:31)

“I usually write down a bunch of facts about someone and then write down some talking points and then, depending on who it is, five or six pointed questions. Some people I don’t write any questions down. I just have the talking points like I want to make sure we hit this. It just totall depends on who they are. A coach for instance, I’m gonna be way more specific with questions written down ahead of time.” (12:04)

“I think when people are honest about the help they have it makes the rest of us feel like, ‘Ok, maybe I’m not doing X, Y, & Z, but I don’t have help here.’ And it’s really easy to compare your life to someone else’s and think, ‘Well, if she can do all these things, why can’t I?’ Nobody’s life is the exact same.” (14:23)

“This is what I’m known for. I say, ‘I’m probably just gonna do five miles,’ because that’s all I feel like doing in the moment. And then I usually tag a couple more on at the end. Famous last words, ‘I’m just gonna do five miles.’” (37:38)

“If there’s a soccer day or something like that that’s really packed with family stuff, that run is happening the day before or the day after. The run is not taking priority over work and family. I think that there’s a way to do that, it’s just figuring it out.” (50:41)
