Ep 41 - Update on 2018 Goals

July 14, 2018

It’s episode 41 and time for an update on Pete and Gretchen’s 2018 goals. How are they doing? Will they argue? We all know the answer to that last one.

The show follows the usual updates and gives a pretty comprehensive overview of their goals. At least what they can remember.

It is the longest of all the episodes so far, so if you like that one, you’ll likely love the rest because they are mostly under 2 minutes!

Ep 40 - That Episode Without a Topic

July 7, 2018

Pete and Gretchen make something (?) out of nothing in this special laugh-filled episode. There’s no real topic, but the couple shares plenty about what’s going on.

A new vehicle, an update on Pete’s training – including what is an excuse versus a reason to stop a bad run – and plenty of #viewsfromthecouch with pop culture references. Pete also shares why he never runs with his shirt off.

This one really is like listening in on a conversation with Pete and Gretchen, as scary as that thought really is!

They finish up talking about Pete’s new Be Better Today podcast which is 1- to 3-minute inspirational start to the day. The Be Better Today Podcast can be found on your favorite podcast app.

Ep 39 - How Stress Impacts Weight

June 29, 2018

Pete and Gretchen are back together and recording from the Be Better Today Studios, aka – their basement.

After a week with no Gretchen, the couple catches up on what’s been happening with her trip to Arizona, reality shows, and her quest to meet her step goal.

Pete updates us on his training, has a warning about working out in the heat, and talks about some incredible hiking he did with his son, Daniel.

The big topic of the day is stress. How does stress impact weight? Why does it happen? What happens? How do you fix it? Spoiler alert – stress can cause weight gain and it isn’t easy to change.

Ep 38 - Interview with Amy Wierman

June 23, 2018

Well, it finally happened – Gretchen left Pete. We all saw it coming. OK, only for a five-day trip to Arizona, but still. Who wants to listen to just Pete in an episode? Answer: No One!

Instead of hearing Pete drone on, he interviews Amy Wierman. Amy is an open water swimmer and former triathlete who has accomplished a ton and inspires so many. Amy has battled weight all her life and is in the process of taking a big step to lose. Pete was inspired by Amy’s attitude as much as her accomplishments, so we cannot wait for you to listen!

Ep 37 - Interview with Susan Heard

June 8, 2018

This is the longest FMC podcast to date, so get ready for over 2 hours of awesomeness!

Episode 37 kicks off with Pete and Gretchen giving a heartfelt thank you to Rob Bozovich for his editing instruction. Pete would still be editing episode 35 if it wasn’t for him. Thank you, Rob!

After sharing a story of one of Gretchen’s superfans, the couple recaps their week. They also catch you up on a conversation with Peter Bilarczyk, who offered a free coaching session after they interviewed him in episode 29.

The rest of the episode is all about Pete’s interview with fellow Sub-30 Club member, Susan Heard. Susan lost her son, David, to cancer in February 2011. As you can imagine, Susan struggled for years before deciding to live life. Since then, Susan has become a runner, triathlete, and advocate for families coping with cancer and the grieving process. Susan’s story is heartfelt, heartbreaking, inspiring, and, ultimately, uplifting. Her outlook on life and the story of David’s legacy is something you will not want to miss!

Ep 36 - Coach or Therapist?

June 2, 2018

Episode 36 is all about catching up with Pete and Gretchen. Although, Pete does have a new second date update story and a revelation about coach Andy.

The couple also discusses this video from NBC News that gives the three keys to weight loss, even without exercise. Is it just clickbait or is it worth a couple of minutes of your time? Spoiler alert – this one is actually pretty good!

Ep 35 - Interview with Trevor from Marathon Training Academy!

May 23, 2018

Episode 35 starts out by saying, “Let the music play!”

That’s right, Pete figured out how to edit well enough to get the music in along with combining a few tracks. It took him a week and the sound is ok, but, really, we all had zero confidence this day would come.

Pete and Gretchen give a brief recap of their week before the attention turns to this week’s special guest. Pete was able to interview Trevor Spencer from the uber-popular and long-running Marathon Training Academy podcast. Trevor is funny, insightful, and fully of great stories. It was a treat to have on podcasting royalty!
