Balancing Running & Family w/ Johannah Vandenbush – Ep 56


How do you balance family, work, and running? The secret is you don’t. If you are training for marathons or ultras then some part of that trifecta is going to fall apart. The trick is, just like running down steep hills, it’s controlled chaos. Something has got to give but you can choose what does and when.

In episode 56 of The Sugarstride Podcast my super extra special guest Johannah Vandenbush, my daughter, spills the dirt on what gets left behind in our household. We discuss how our paths connect while she totally hates running and I run 100 milers. There is a sweet spot where we can connect with each other and we are both happy. We don’t pretend to have all of the answers but hopefully this sheds some light on what happens in our lives and inspires you to have reasonable expectations and find a sweet spot of your own.
