WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT RUNNING A MARATHON?!?
GET STARTED RUNNING – A CHEERLEADER HELPS
Dr. Dave motivated Yoko to start running even though she could not even run one mile! Dr. Dave signed her up for a race. So, Yoko started going outside and running a little bit each day. Dr. Dave always had something nice to say each day no matter how little or how much she ran. It is so great to have a partner and cheerleader on your side to encourage you. Who is your cheerleader? Can you be a cheerleader for someone? Can you be cheerleaders for each other?
YOUR FIRST MARATHON
Can you dedicate a reason for your first marathon? Can you celebrate your 30th or 35th or 40th birthday with a marathon race? Yoko’s first marathon she ran with Dr. Dave in dedication to Dr. Dave’s grandmother who had recently passed away. Listen to Yoko talk about her very first marathon from start to finish and the struggle from mile 20 until the very end. “A marathon is an extremely emotional experience,” says Dr. Dave. After 20 miles, Yoko was crying in her sunglasses and wasn’t sure if she could finish. Listen to her story and see if she finished!
RUNNING MARATHONS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE
“In my mind, I thought a marathon was impossible,” said Yoko. Once you change your mind and your belief and accomplish such an amazing goal, your body is not only change, but your mind is changed forever. You now have stretched your beliefs to accomplish more than you previous thought you could. Marathons stretch your minds and beliefs! You now start smashing through your disbeliefs and accomplishing more in every area of your life.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE
It is never too late to start running, to start training, to run your first marathon! Dr. Dave and Yoko see people of all ages and ability on the courses. These people are so inspiring and can even bring you to tears. Your speed doesn’t matter because there will always be faster than you as there will be people slower than you. A marathon is about so much more than running!
BLOG OF THE DAY – LINDSAY SANDERS RUNNING BLOG
“So here I am on the tail end of training for my first marathon. It has been an incredible experience. So much so that I decided to document it in a blog, primarily to remember this time in my life, share it with my son someday, and share it today with friends and family who have supported me through my runs the last two years. Secondarily, if it ever reached anyone else and inspired them in some sort of way that would be the cherry on top of this journey.” ~Lindsay Dr. Dave recommends Lindsay’s blog to be inspired to get running, run a race, even run a marathon.

LISTENER QUESTION OF THE DAY – HOW TO DEAL WITH CRAVINGS
Lori writes into the show asking how can she get back on track again to living a more healthier life like she was only 2 years ago. First, get rid of it all! Get it out of your house. Start immediately replacing all the junk and crap with healthier options. Drink more water and more tea. Stop eating sugary non-nutritious foods. Also, all of us have an energy flow to our bodies. If your energy is blocked or in the wrong direction this greatly affects what you eat. Listen to Dr. Dave and his wife Yoko, a registered massage therapist talk about how energy flow is influencing your life! Also, Yoko has a secret way to change your body’s energy; so be sure to listen to their discussion.
Yoko talked about the cycle of the body, especially a woman’s body and particular cravings you can get just right before your period. Many women experiences this 2-4 days before their periods and many women indulge in some sweet or salty things at this time. Consider a variety of healthier options. If you do need to eat ice cream at this time, chose the best ice cream or sweets you can afford or make it yourself. Don’t have any artificial items, colors, or flavors if you do need to indulge.
