E4.1: Finding Joy Through Trauma, Guest Sandra Mikulic
Sandra Mikulic is a self proclaimed plus size runner and triathlete. In March 2018, at the age of 43, she started running and that's where her story of self transcendence begins. In January 2019, she started a challenge of running 5kms (3.12 miles) every day. She has surpassed 1070 days of running 5kms every day since January 1, 2019! Taking on this challenge has changed the neuroplasticity of Sandra's brain. Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to form and reorgnaize synaptic connections. High neuroplasticity enables individuals to learn and re-organize information, as well as, heal trauma and anxiety and even injury. Running 5kms every day has changed Sandra's life. Within a 3 year time span, Sandra has finished 4 marathons, 24 half marathons, a 50k ultra and a triathlon. She is also launching a magazine to empower, motivate and inspire people to move their bodies with the understanding that one's size does not matter!    ****To follow Sandra visit her on Instagram: @bigfit_i_run (https://www.instagram.com/bigfit_i_run/).***            ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message***                ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f                   ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on:              Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead),                 Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek),   Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts       Google Podcasts (https://bit.ly/3oqGUTo),                Spotify (https://spoti.fi/37Oowgm) and so much more! ***                    ****THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!! *****If you like what you've heard on the show, please consider contributing to or sponsoring the show.  Contact the host Pilar Arthur-Snead ( https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message ) for more information on sponsorship!

E.3.16: No Boundaries, We are Boundless, Guest Kennith Pinckney
Kennith Pinckney is an endurance athlete and entrepreneur based in San Diego, California. At the age of 29, Kennith decided to join the United States Navy - not knowing how to swim. After 50 tries, 3 months and walking to the swimming facilities in the middle of winter, Kennith finally passed his Navy swimming qualifications.  Thus began life as a career Navy man. Kennith describes his first few years as "getting by" which finally caught up with him, when he failed his weigh-in. At 240 lbs, Kennith faced a new challenge to change or simply stay the same. Kennith decided it was time for a big change. He decided to start running.  With the help of his coach, Kennith lost weight, passed his weight quals in the Navy and eventually became CFL Command Fitness Leader in his Naval Reserve Unit. Kennith says: "I was transformed physically and mentally...I went from running 14:00/mile to running 11:00/mile...So far, I have lived a life full of uncertainties, hopelessness, hopeful, failures, triumph, different directions, anxiety, feeling of unworthiness , gratefulness, disappointments, and gratitude which I am at the present moment."  Kennith invites all runners to remember: "The journey we all live is going to be hills, valleys, peaks, mountains to climb. There is no limit on what we can do, what we can overcome, how much we can do, we all can be BOUNDLESS. To be boundless is to Love it, Hate it, Embrace….the Journey, your journey. Hopefully we all can go on this journey together and be BOUNDLESS." ****To follow the Kennith visit  him on Instagram: @live_run_boundless (https://www.instagram.com/live_run_boundless/).

E3.15: Find a Way to Run, Guest April Pullins
April Pullins is originally from Chicago, IL. She has also lived in Phoenix, AZ and now resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband and three sons. Previously, April worked as a special educator working with deaf children in K-12 education. In 2014, April left her 15 year career in education to pursue life as an entrepreneur and independent ASL Interpreter. While living in Arizona, April’s sister in law started running and training for marathons. She was fascinated by the sport and even more so by her sister in laws’ persistence in training through Arizona heat. This planted the seed for the future. A few years later, during a difficult time in her marriage, April opened her front door and just went for a run. She enjoyed the seeing the beauty around her and the peace of mind running gave her. It was running that carried her through a challenging time. But, after she and her husband worked things out, she put running on the back burner. Fast forward to the COVID-19 pandemic, a fellow sign language interpreter lost 70 pounds running and working out. It was seeing her friend’s success that encouraged April to hit her stride last year. The timing was perfect as April was also battling depression. It was again through running that April was able to reconnect with herself. To date, April has run a handful of 5k’s and 10K’s and she is currently training for her first half marathon. ****To follow the April visit  her on Instagram: @thisisaprilpullins/ (https://www.instagram.com/thisisaprilpullins/)  ***      ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message***        ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f           ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on:        Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead),           Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek),   Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts!       Google Podcasts (https://bit.ly/3oqGUTo),          Spotify (https://spoti.fi/37Oowgm) and so much more! ***            ****THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!! *****If you like what you've heard on the show, please consider contributing to or sponsoring the show.  Contact the host Pilar Arthur-Snead ( https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message ) for more information on sponsorship!

E3.14: A Run Through It, Guest Phyllis Stanley
Phyllis Stanley is an ultra runner based out of the Pacific Northwest (PNW), prime country for glorious mountain trails.  She and her two boys live in a small town called Montesano which is about 43 miles west of Olympia, Olympic National Park  and the Olympic Mountains along with the Cascades Mountains.     Phyllis was born and raised in Arizona on the Navajo Nation just outside of small reservation town called Kayenta.  It was a complete rural setting without typical American household amenities like running water, indoor plumbing, and electricity.  Growing up, there was no shortage of work or chores, daily and year round, because her family owned a huge herd of cattle, horses, sheep and goats.   Phyllis’ parents practiced traditional Navajo spiritual customs, so her days always began with early morning runs to the east to greet the holy spirits before sunrise.  Rain, sleet, or hail, as a family, they always ran together (unless you were in bed with the flu, of course!).  Every summer Phyllis, her parents and siblings also planted a big field of corn, but not your average sized garden plot, it was an acre corn field! They also planted and harvested variety of squash, melons and other vegetables.  Early in 1986, Phyllis’ dad passed away in an automobile accident. Her mom did her best to continue but had to downsize because it was too much to manage.    After losing many very dear loved ones, trail running became a way to help Phyllis grieve.  Phyllis lost her mom in 2012, followed by an older sister two years later, to cancer.  Then in 2018, Phyllis lost her brother JB after a bout with stomach cancer in 2018.  Losing her brother turned her world upside down because he was an inspirational person in her life.  Phyllis dove into trail running as a way to cope with onsetting depression and it became only thing that was helpful in processing her grief.  Phyllis completed her first 50 miler on July 27, 2019, exactly a year to the day that her brother passed away.  It was the White River 50 which takes place in the shadow of Mount Rainier (think lots of elevation gain). Phyllis was crewed by her late fiancè (along with her two sons), Luis, who passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer last year, Oct 2020 - just two weeks shy of his 43rd birthday.     Of the last few years, Phyllis says, “It's been a trying time but also survive-able thanks to ultra running.  It's definitely given me a new perspective and appreciation for loving with a full heart because we just don't know when is our last day on this planet.”   ****To follow the Phyllis visit  her on Instagram: @phyllis.stanley (https://www.instagram.com/phyllis.stanley/)  ***      ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message***        ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f  ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on:         Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead),  Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek),   Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts!   Google Podcasts (https://bit.ly/3oqGUTo),    Spotify (https://spoti.fi/37Oowgm) and so much more! *** ****THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!! *****If you like what you've heard on the show, please consider contributing to or sponsoring the show.

E3.13.2: Be Kinder, Guest Jodie Bayardo
Jodie Bayardo is a 34 year old mom from Central Florida.  She works full time as an operations manager in the mortgage industry; she is also pursuing her MBA. Jodie also happens to be legally blind! She is very passionate about advocacy for accessibility in the workplace and in sports. Jodie uses her social media platforms to document my life and change the way that society views sight loss. Jodie says, "I may have lost my sight - but I have found my vision!". In 2014, after having her son, Jodie began running as a weight loss effort. Her journey was interrupted, though, when she began losing her sight at age 29. As she learned to navigate the changes in her life and body, running became more about her mental health. Running was a constant reminder to Jodie that she was still capable! Running has carried her through some of the darkest days and taught Jodie to love and respect her body in all of its forms and phases. Today, Jodie is a 3 time marathoner, an 18 time half marathoner, and she's chasing the World Majors! She's been toying with ultra running. Currently, Jodie is training for Disney’s Dopey Challenge in January of 2022.  ****To follow the Jodie visit  her on Instagram: @blindgirlfit (https://www.instagram.com/blindgirlfit/)  ***      ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message***        ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f           ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on:         Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead),           Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek),   Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts!       Google Podcasts (https://bit.ly/3oqGUTo),          Spotify (https://spoti.fi/37Oowgm) and so much more! ***            ****THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!! *****If you like what you've heard on the show, please consider contributing to or sponsoring the show.  Contact the host Pilar Arthur-Snead ( https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message ) for more information on sponsorship!

E3.13: What You Think About You Bring About, Guest Deo Kato
Deo Kato (aka Deoruns) is a plant-based Endurance athlete, Adventurer, PT & Running Coach and Activist. He recently completed a run streak by running a minimum of 10km every day for 381 days from 06th of June 2020 to 21st of June 2021. The 381-day protest run honors those of the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955-56 and the bravery shown by those who fought against racial segregation. Following the murders of Ahmaud Aurbery, Bryonna Taylor and George Floyd in 2020, Deo set off to use running as a form of activism and to bring about change for the issues that matter most to him.   Deo started running  as a way to find a solution to an undiagnosed health condition that affected his body. The condition prevented Deo from doing any physical activity or being in warm or hot environments. Deo's doctor told him that there was nothing wrong with him and that the condition that affected was all in his head. That's when he knew he had to figure out a way to heal his body.    ****To follow the Deo visit  the on Instagram: @deoruns_381 (https://www.instagram.com/deoruns_381/)  ***      ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message***       ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f           ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on:         Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead),           Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek),   Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts!       Google Podcasts (https://bit.ly/3oqGUTo),          Spotify (https://spoti.fi/37Oowgm) and so much more! ***            ****THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!! *****If you like what you've heard on the show, please consider contributing to or sponsoring the show.  Contact the host Pilar Arthur-Snead ( https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/message ) for more information on sponsorship!

E3.1: Black Trail Runners, Guest Sabrina Pace Humphrey’s
Sabrina Pace-Humphreys – Ultrarunning mum of 4 and co-founder of Black Trail Runners. Sabrina is a 42 year old mother of 4 and grandmother of 2. She started running after the birth of her fourth child in 2009. She initially took up the sport as a way to lose 5 stones of weight gained through her pregnancy, and manage her mental health while living with post-natal depression. By self coaching over time she lost the weight but also found a passion for running and used it as a way to ‘reclaim herself’ while living with anxiety and depression. In her early running journey, Sabrina completed a variety of distances from 5K to marathon distance and has travelled the world via the love of her sport – completing New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Edinburgh and London Marathon to name but a few. In 2016 Sabrina increased her distance to ultra marathon and found a love of trail running while preparing to run the toughest footrace on earth – the Marathon Des Sables – a 250K multi-day ultramarathon in the Sahara desert. This was an adventure she wanted to ‘compete’ in as a goal event to celebrate her 40th birthday. In 2018, Sabrina completed this race as 13th UK woman to cross the finish line. This sparked something inside her to want to help others use running, and trail running in particular, to manage their mental health. In July 2020 following the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, a rise sparked by the murder of runner Ahmaud Arbery amongst others, Sabrina co-found the fast growing community and campaigning group – Black Trail Runners. A trail running community for black people who want to experience trail running. Whether new to the discipline, or an experienced trail runner, this communities common goal is to provide a safe space for Black men and women who are looking to connect, get support from and be inspired via a community of Black men and women, and white allies, who are passionate about trail running and inclusivity for ALL.*** ****To follow Sabrina's running visit her on Instagram @sabrunsmiles (https://www.instagram.com/sabrunsmiles/​) **For more information on Black Trail Runners, please visit them on IG at @blacktrailrunners (https://www.instagram.com/blacktrailr...​) You can also visit them on the web: Black Trail Runners (https://www.blacktrailrunners.run)***​ ****Host, Coach Pilar Arthur-Snead, https://linktr.ee/mindfulrunner​ **** Leave me a message at https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead/...​ ***Please Like and Subscribe to The Last Tenth Podcast on You Tube: https://bit.ly/37foa2f​ ***Listen toThe Last Tenth Podcast on: Anchor.fm (https://anchor.fm/pilar-arthur-snead​), Apple Podcasts (https://apple.co/3lXB5ek​), Please be sure to leave your positive feedback and 5 star review on Apple Podcasts!

E2.13: The Runner’s Mind, Guest Coach Eric Wilden
"Running and meditation are different but...I think runners, in general, even if they don't know it, have a strong foundation in mindfulness. Even if you just think about the repetitive nature of your feet hitting the ground over and over again and you focus on that for whatever amount of time, that's mindfulness. That is developing the ability to focus on something without being distracted." ~ Coach Eric Wilden, Founder Dharma Running, Ambassador Still I Run *** Coach Eric Wilden has been running for almost 20 years, meditating for more than 30, and believes in the power of mindful running to help make the world a better place. He started his Dharma Running coaching practice several years ago in order to help runners build on the organic mindfulness that running can provide with Buddhist practices to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and a desire to engage in the world. Eric is a long distance runner and has completed 15 marathons, a few 50ks, and one 50-miler, as well as many shorter races. He lives just outside Philadelphia with his wife and two daughters.****   ****For more information about Dharma Running, visit https://dharmarunning.com .

EP BONUS S1: How Bad Do You Want It?, Pilar Arthur-Snead

No matter how hard that work is, and however long it takes to get from point a to point b, you WILL be better for it." ~ Pilar Arthur-Snead~  Pilar started running in 2015. Running has changed her life completely.
