So THIS Is Fitness | Health, Fitness, Running & Weight Loss

Health, fitness, running, weight loss... it doesn't have to be hard! Take it from a guy who's been there and "gets it" - your host, Darrell McTague. Having lost 130 lbs and finished ULTRAmarathons, he's learned it all the hard way so you don't have to.

Who says it couldn't be you?

Some people are out there doing some pretty amazing things... and often I find they simply fell into it by accident. No grand designs of fame, fortune, and conquering. Simply... "I want to run Boston"... or... "I'd like to stay fit in the off-season". And then, before you know it... you're crushing several 100 mile ultramarathons in a year and setting world records running marathons in 7 continents... at 42 years old... like Mike Wardian. 

Age is just a number... and "I Can't" is an attitude, not a fact.


I can't stress... not today, not ever... how critical it is that you have a little faith in yourself and believe you can do it. That's what Mike did, and it's what he does every day. Now - plenty of people out there know WHO Mike is and what he's done. What most people DON'T know... is how this incredible running machine was created. On episode 33 of the podcast... we have a great conversation and talk about exactly that. And who woulda thought... it all started with lacrosse.
