  1. Hey Sid,

    For the past several months, I have listened to your podcasts while I run and sometimes when I drive alone on long road trips heading out west, and I just have to say thank you! I listened to the one on V.A.T. this morning while taking a 7 mile run with my dog, and I felt so positive, peaceful, and at ease during and after the experience. You make me laugh out loud sometimes which is always a plus, but can be awkward when I am forced to run on the dreaded treadmill due to the inclement weather I’ve had all winter in Indiana. Though I did brave the 0 degree weather on more than a few occasions and learned to run in the snow and ice to have the natural-running-outside-experience that I crave and relish!

    This has been a stressful time for me, as I am in graduate school studying clinical psychology, and listening to your talks while I run always puts me in a better, more positive frame of mind. It’s a mental break from the rest of my day that can be both calming and energizing, and it reinforces the healthy habits and changes I have made so far in my life. I definitely have the exercise habit down, and have run 3 half-marathons (will race my fourth in a month) and many other shorter races. I have been a vegan for two years, but in the last year, I have transitioned into a truly healthy lifestyle that is mostly raw with lots of fruit. I am surrounded by people who do not share my passion for nutrition and healthy eating habits, so it’s always nice to hear you reinforce and validate my efforts!

    Thanks for your weekly podcasts! Keep doing what you’re doing! I get it!

    All the best,
    Taylor 🙂

  2. Hey Taylor, Very much appreciate you taking the time to write. Thanks for listening to the AtN podcast and I’m really happy you’re enjoying it. Don’t sweat the laughing on the treadmill–it’s not always a negative having people think you’re a little ‘off’ (it’s been fairly regular for me in my life). You sound like you’re doing great. Feel free to shoot me e-mails from time to time letting me know how you’re doing. I love hearing from people who are in the ‘practice’ of improving their health and happiness. Good luck with graduate school! –Sid
