Welcome to the Mindful Runner Podcast - your portal into the intersection of mindfulness and ultra running. Hosted by Fred Richardson, an accomplished ultra runner, and adventurer, who also serves as the founder and head coach at Mindful Runner.
Our mission is to bring you valuable insights, effective training wisdom, gear reviews, news on ultra racing in South Africa, and intriguing interviews. We bring to the table not only conversations with top athletes but also individuals who contribute significantly to the trail and ultra community, offering diverse and enriching perspectives.
At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that mindfulness is a potent tool that can empower you to meet your running goals and elevate your running journey. Each episode is meticulously crafted to be short yet rich in content, giving you meaningful takeaways without unnecessary distractions.
Initially conceived as an internal resource for Mindful Runner athletes, we saw the potential of this podcast as a beacon of knowledge for the broader running community. So, whether you're a seasoned ultra runner or just embarking on your running journey, join us as we delve into the fascinating world of mindful running.
