Episode 299: Patrick Cutter – Running + Lifting = Happy Runner
Patrick Cutter joins me on the show today! He’s a 2:34 marathoner and 1:12 half marathoner. He also really loves lifting weights as well- which I was excited to hear more about because I’ve been into lifting myself these days!
Patrick coaches around 50 athletes with Mckirdy Trained and I can tell is super invested in his athletes and helping them to become the best runners they can be. Last March he suffered from blood clots in his lungs and shares about that experience and how he’s doing now! He has a great perspective on everything and it was truly refreshing to talk with him for the show!
SIDE NOTE- My mic didn’t turn on right for this episode and my end is kind of low on volume and a bit staticky. I’m so annoyed with myself! I hope it’s not too annoying- such a rookie move for someone who is not a rookie anymore.
