Crazy Goals, Running, and the Plant-Based Diet: A Live Recording of My Book Tour Talk

Podcast Radio2What else is there to say? The book tour is done (today is the final event), I’ve written what there is to write about the adventure, and I’m pretty well stoked for the next chapter for No Meat Athlete.

2014 holds some major changes for NMA, the biggest in the five years since I started this little blog. While there’s a lot I can’t unveil quite yet, I can tell you that one change, for me, is a big shift in what I personally do. A shift away from the roles of managing, emailing, accounting, and more emailing, and a return to the simple job of making things — blog posts, podcasts, ebooks, webinars, and a lot more that Doug, Susan, and I have in mind for the next year and beyond.

And what has brought about the desire to make that change is, of course, the experience of the past two months … meeting literally thousands of readers from all across the country, listening to their stories of change, and being inspired to focus again on the things that really matter for this blog. And for this movement.

So in this final post about the tour — and trust me, it’s been amazing but it’s with great pleasure that I move on — I’m pleased to share a live recording from our event at Bearded Brothers in Austin, Texas. You’ll hear me and co-author Matt Ruscigno give what became our standard talks, so that you can get a small taste of what the events were like, in case you couldn’t make it out to one.

Hope you enjoy it — and even better, I hope you use it.

Here’s what to expect in this episode:

  • The best parts of the book tour
  • Matt Ruscigno’s talk at Bearded Brothers in Austin, TX
  • My talk at Bearded Brothers in Austin, TX
  • The “easy” trick for becoming comfortable with what scares you
  • How Doug actually took my advice and put it into action
  • Doug’s plans for his 100-miler
  • The importance of “burning desire” when it comes to habit change

  1. Matt, even though I know your story well, I enjoyed listening to this recording of your book tour talk because of how you recapped your journey and origin of NMA while tying that into a message about setting a “crazy” goal beyond what one thinks is realistic. I definitely feel inspired by that, thanks! I need to figure out what my next crazy goal is… above and beyond the more general goals of running more trail races, losing weight, eating less meat, and trying to set a half-marathon PR.

    Matt it was great to meet you @ Fleet Feet Weds night (on the last stop of your book tour) in Raleigh, NC. I really enjoyed listening to you as you shared your story. Thanks for some great info. Looking forward to learning much more – as I finish up on my reading. : ) lovin’ the book!!!
    Take care & run on!

  3. Thanks, downloading now. Only just found your blog so am just going through it all this week. I’m a keen runner but only just started writing about it. Building up to my first marathon
