#136: Down Size with Best-selling Author Ted Spiker

Professor Ted Spikers speaks the truths with the mother runners.
Professor Ted Spiker speaks the truths with the mother runners.

As part of the AMR Running and Reading Club, Dimity and Sarah welcome Ted Spiker, a father runner and author of Down Size: 12 Truths for Turning Pants-Splitting Frustration into Pants-Fitting Success. Known also as the guy behind the Big Guy Blog for Runner’s World website, Ted has gone through numerous ups and downs with his weight, even while training for marathons and an Ironman triathlon. Ted talks about why it’s so important to value successes instead of focusing on mistakes, whether it’s in the pursuit of a race starting line or weight-loss goal. Find out why he thinks exercise and eating are exact opposites. The trio discusses chocolate chips and bond over Blizzards.

First up, though, Dimity talks about the, sigh, re-appearance of her well-worn black boot. Let’s hope she’s not sporting it at the AMR Run + Refresh Retreat next April in Little Rock.

  1. I am completely with Dimity on the chocolate chips. I will search the pantry for anything semi-edible to relieve my craving for sweets. It’s sad but true.
