Tommie Runz: World Marathon Tour; Osaka-Tokyo-Boston-London + a conversation on Sobriety, Grief and life changing decisions.

Today on the podcast Tommie Runz joins me!! I’ve had so much fun getting to know Tommie more as one of the co-hosts of the Relay Podcast.

Tommie is about to complete 4 marathons in two months – Osaka, Tokyo, Boston and London which will set him up to have finished all 6 of the World Marathon Majors. This specific time is special to Tommie as he will surpass the age his own Father was when he passed away at 39 years old due to a stroke. Tommie was only 8 years old when he lost his Dad and this moment in time has been something he’s thought about almost his entire life. In this podcast we go deep into what it means to him and what life has been life for him without getting to have a relationship with his Dad.

We go deep into sobriety, cleaning his life up and how having a daughter saved his life.

Over the years Tommie has established and solidified a community of individuals who share the same passion in running, mindfulness, and self-improvement. He created and founded Chip Time Running to disrupt the current status quo in the running industry; began a podcast “The Run Eat Sleep Show”; and launched the PR Project on YouTube where he sits as co-host. In April 2021, he qualified for the Boston Marathon with a chip time of 2:48:43. As a runner, Tommie continues to chase his goals and aspires to actively improve his times in the 5k through marathon. In doing so, he hopes to increase Black visibility in a predominantly White running space. He now olds a PR of 2:46 and has big dreams to take that down in the future- maybe this fall??
