LHRL Podcast 13 with Alex Viada | Lift Heavy Run Long

We had a really fun time chatting with Alex Viada of Complete Human Performance.  I’ve been following Alex for a long time, but this was my first time getting to talk to him.  He’s always been someone I looked up to because of all of the impressive numbers he’s put up and all of the things he’s accomplished, so I was especially excited to have him on the show.  You might think that a guy that’s done a couple of Ironman Triathlons, some ultra marathons, and can squat 600 lbs might be a little full of himself.  Alex is quite the opposite.  He’s very humble and easy to talk to.  We could have easily filled up 2 hours of conversation with him.  If you take anything away from this episode, I hope it’s this:  You can do whatever you want, and you can have fun doing it.  No matter who you are.  Here’s a quote from Alex on the show:

You don’t have to be an incredibly gifted, genetic freak…you just have to try

Right on!  We totally agree.  I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did, and don’t miss the fact that I totally committed to running the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler.  🙂  Enjoy the show…
