Jon Castro Interview: Take Your Job and Love It…
Take Your Job and Love It… How to transition from being an employee to being a BOSS If your interested in hearing how to take your current job and love it, tune into this episode, if your know of someone that could benefit for this shift in mindset please share it. I’ll share specific takeaways on how you can “Take Your Job and Love It” in a Medium post. I met Jon in my local DD at the time he worked the evening shift, his attention to detail and sense of purpose piqued my interest. If the tables or restroom needed cleaning and they were short staffed he did it, he was constantly in motion during his shift; when he delegated task to his team, he didn’t bark out orders, he provided direction. I’d come in grab a cup of coffee, a muffin, sit in the corner and work on my blog. After about year or so we got to talking about running, that’s when I found out his father was Miguel Castro. Miguel is the guy, along with Sean who talked me into doing my first marathon-talk about the world being small. Jon’s character and work ethic as an employee is what prepared him for opening his own business. Retail is a Petri dish where you get to practice your leadership and customers service skills, in time they will flourish if you diligently practice, every interaction is an opportunity for you to master your craft. I hope you enjoy this episode.

The Unicorn Hunting Project: A lesson in Resiliency
In 2019 I embarked on cross country tour in search of 35 Unicorns.  The plan was to visit 35 States, run a 5k during the week and half marathon on the weekends.  It would be a mini-documentary while driving a Mini Cooper across the country and interviewing "Unicorns" aka ordinary people who were doing EXTRAordinary things within their communities.  After two blown engines and a totaled vehicle after being rear-ended the dream would not become a reality.  Nevertheless I persisted!  That sounds good, but that's not the reality, I was disappointed and viewed it as a public failure.   The only person I shared the failed attempt with was my sister, I told her how I felt.  I felt horrible. It was as if let those who believed in me down.  I took some time to lick my wounds.  All of the feelings that I experienced during the Unicorn Hunting Project were starting to resurface, because my  car needed to be taken to the shop, and my driver's lic. had expired.  Life happens to all of us, but its how we respond that matters.  I put off airing this episode for months.   Recently, Jeri Villarreal has been reframing failure in here post and it resonated, I've been chewing on those words for a minute. Jeri said: "Remember that time you failed and it hurt so bad that it almost broke you? Then you told yourself that comforting lie to take away the pain, normalize the experience and explain away the painful result. Then, years later, the only thing that you remember is that lie you told yourself. It becomes your truth. It becomes the foundation that you base yourself upon.  I've made it my mission to dismantle those lies at their foundation by purposefully doing the very thing that created it. By addressing the fear that started it all and overcoming the challenge, the lie falls away because it doesn't serve me anymore. That is how I make room for success in life. I remove those lies, those fear-based stories It is up to us to change our own narratives."  Jeri's words influenced me to jot down a few thoughts in am upcoming  Medium post.

Listening to politicians trying to interpret what Trump say in plain english is hilarious.  No, it's actually an insult to all Americans and people all over the world.  What's more frustrating is the denouncing game the media plays for ratings.  If you've gotta corner someone with a microphone and a camera in order for them speak out against something they strongly believe, their statement shouldn't even be taken seriously because it was coerced.  Also on today's episode Charles Blow on Bigots and Rep Katie Porter, grills Big Pharma CEO for price gouging.

Venture Outside Of Your Comfort Zone
Do you remember a song by Dj Khaled "No New Friends?"  It was out in 2013 the video has over 32million views and I'd venture to say some people have literally taken the lyrics to heart.  I'd like to suggest making some new friends, venture outside of your comfort zone and connect with other likeminded individuals and you'll be amazed at what happens.  I'm not suggesting this as a self serving one-sided relationship, where you're just looking to receive.  No!  Friendships, like communication are a two way street.   Making new friends as we get older can be difficult, but it's not impossible Nikkis and Zsa-Zsa prove that it can be done.  Nikkis admired a quality in Zsa-Zsa so she reached out to her, Zsa-Zsa respected and appreciated Nikkis humor and transparency.  The two would become friends and while we were in the early stages of the lock-down the friends launched a business Exposed Vegan.

Thinking Ain't Easy But It Sure Is Fun!
Group thinking can be dangerous I know we’re upset with the Breonna Taylor situation specifically Daniel Cameron decision to hide behind the Grand Jury, but a roasting session of Daniel Cameron is not going to bring back Breonna Taylor. No one person has the power to excommunicate a black person from the black community, if you’re born black you gonna die. My concern with the excommunication philosophy is it can very easily force people into group thinking and they start becoming obsessed with being excepted by the popular group.

Passion
In the blink of an eye we can get a snap shot into the inner life of someone, by peering into their car, apartment, house, or junk draw.  I tuned in Believe In The Run's IG live yesterday and caught a glimpse of Richard Kuchinsky talking about kicks and I could instantly tell he loved talking about shoe design.

We Can't Afford To Get Exhausted
I’ve set my expectations low on purpose when it comes to our justice system as personal self care strategy and to keep from becoming apathetic or going on an emotional roller coaster ride. I sometimes get the feeling that part of the strategy is to wear us out to the point where we just give up, but we can’t afford to quit.  I’m past the point of trying to muster up more outrage from the day before, now it’s about conserving my energy and thinking and acting strategically and not acting off of my impulses or emotions, because those don’t always lead to my best decisions. I listened to Daniel Cameron’s press conference and then I spoke to a few attorneys before formulating an opinion about the decision.  I’ll share a few thoughts here and more later in a medium post, but basically the Attorney General’s job is to present the facts of the case, they are influential, if they want absolve themselves of any responsibility they’ll hide behind the Grand Jury’s decision-it’s out of my hands.   If you're tired of a station that doesn't speak to your needs and you're interested in learning more about the BTW Podcast visit RUNUTAINMENT .  Oh yeah I haven't mentioned my Ko-fi page.

Running While Black In America
Tiffany Johnson, 37, who lives in Woodside, was attacked back in August while out for a jog, her only crime was she was running while black in America.  Running while black is not a crime in America, but you couldn't tell by frequency with which we are pulled over and harassed by the police for engaging in a simple physical activity-apparently we fit the description.  Tiffany said her instinct was to avoid further confrontation. “I just wanted to get away from her as quickly as possible. My safety was my first concern. Her mentality is her problem,” she said. “I don’t really like to take on other people’s issues. That she thinks that way is her problem, not my problem.”  Noting Black women often have to deal with casual and overt acts of racism, Johnson had this advice: “Don’t let anyone steal your joy.” Why are we constantly having to take the high road?  There are two school of thoughts some people feel Tiffany was a punk, for letting that old white woman treat her like that, then they go on to say:  "I woulda beat her ass."  I don't know how I would've responded in that moment.  It would not be a a good look for me as a black man beating up an old white woman.  Let's play this out the cops arrive on the seen they see me a black man beating up this old white woman they're not going to be asking too many questions-I'm going to get arrested.  This whole incident helped to realize I need to memorize at least one persons phone number.  It takes a great deal of restraint to think before acting on impulse.
