Gilbert has endured great suffering in his life, but his message is of joy! Burundian long-distance runner, author, and motivational speaker is a survivor of the massacres during the Burundian Civil War of the early 1990s. Members of the Hutu tribe invaded Tuhabonye's high school and captured more than 100 Tutsi children and teachers killing most with machetes; the rest were burned alive. Tuhabonye managed to escape and he published his account in "This Voice in My Heart: A Genocide Survivor's Story of Escape, Faith, and Forgiveness"

Have you ever run an ultramarathon? If you want to, you can do it. Travis Macy, his dad, Mark, Mimi Anderson, and Bart Yasso are going to make you want to go for a run today and forget about the distance.


Mimi Anderson says, “I had that moment in my heart. You know, where somebody suggests something, and I thought, 'Well, why can't I do that?' It was so out of the ordinary.”


Bart Yasso, “People ask me about motivation and I always said, I had the motivation. I had to, like, hold myself back that I didn't go out and run 40 miles every day. I was… I just loved it.


In this episode, you’ll learn:

Obstacles are all good mental training
Focusing on the process rather than the outcome
Setting goals that you want to beat and working to beat them
Running for the love of it, not just for sport

Joe Gray says, “What are the elite athletes doing? If you're looking to set elite goals for yourself, I don't care if you're a five hour marathoner and you want to run a 4:30, you're trying to do something that you've never done before. You have performance on mind. One thing you'll always notice is you're not going to see a lot of low carb athletes in endurance sports at the top of the sport.”


Today, Yancy and Joseph Gray talk about how you can reach elite goals and live life and train like an elite athlete. Today, you’ll learn about:

- Finding what’s best for you instead of just what works for others
- Training at 38 vs 28 years old
- Importance of being selfless

Laura Gassner Otting, author of “Limitless,” says, “I had the great fortune of having this business coach who was curious about what I was doing and wanted to help me.

I brought him like my P&L sheets and my marketing material and all my to do lists and all this, and I thought I was gonna get all the gold stars. And he didn't look at any of it, and he basically was like, ‘What kind of life do you want?’ And I was like, What are you talking about? And he's like, ‘What kind of life do you want?

Yancy: There may come a day when I can't run anymore, but I can still do it right now. So I do it. I run just about everywhere I go. 

Joe Gray: But ultimately too, I need to stay in shape because I want to beat my son for a few more years. He's slowly catching up.


Today, Yancy and Joseph Gray talk about finding the spark to run, having an activity to do until you physically can’t anymore after a long life, and using it to better your life and for those around you. Today, you’ll learn about:

How to push yourself in a way that brings you gratification like nothing else 
Getting lost in the magical feeling of the trail
One day there will be a day you can’t run anymore, enjoy physical things while you can

Your brain evolved to prevent you from moving, to conserve energy, because there was a time when humans needed  a lot of energy to hunt and to gather food. We don't have to do that now, but the brain is still set up to conserve energy. But if you can overcome that resistance and MOVE you unlock the most powerful medicine in mental health.  This episode explains how exercise can improve focus, memory, depression, anxiety and sleep.  How much exercise you need to do.  And some simple recommendations to encourage the release of the chemicals your brain wants more of.

 

Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan is joined by Jennifer Heisz, PhD author “Move the Body, Heal the Mind” is an expert in brain health, associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University and directs the NeuroFit Lab.  Dr. Heisz's research examines the effects of physical activity on brain function to promote mental health and cognition.
