Many of our conversations center around actionable interventions for peak physical performance, but something we’ve been wanting to dive into is the more philosophical side of fitness and how it ties in with our society. 

We explore these topics with Samuel Robinson, who holds a Ph.D. in history and is a centerpiece in the endurance community here in the Bay Area. His writing, published on outlets such as Outside Magazine, focuses on the culture, experience, and inner lives of endurance athletes and uses sport as a lens that provides otherwise unseen perspectives around us.

In this discussion, you'll discover:

  • How do we as a society and culture play a better role in promoting health?
  • What exactly has been attracting everyday people to competing in marathons and triathlons vs. other sports?
  • Running motivation...what drives us to keep pushing even when it hurts?
