Episode 149 (B) of the Fit Father Project Podcast is our next FFP Member Chat, and it’s all about how to start running and how running can be beneficial to your health and wellness.

Our FFP Member Chats bring members from our Fit Father community together for group roundtable discussions on all the essential topics. 

In this episode, Fit Fathers David, Matt, and Ron join Fit Father Accountability Coach Kat for a fantastic conversation!

All three men are now avid runners, but that wasn’t always the case. They talk about how they got into running, what keeps them motivated to run, all the races they run now, and so much more. 

Not only that, they highlight the upcoming Marine Corps Marathon that they’ll be running along with Fit Father Accountability Coach Craig and the FFP team!

Recognized for impeccable organization on an iconic course managed by the US Marines in Arlington, VA, and the nation's capital, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. Known as ‘the best marathon for beginners,' the MCM is the largest marathon in the world that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, “The People's Marathon.”

Craig, David, Matt, and Ron are signed up to run the 10k at the MCM, and if you’d like to join them, all you have to do is sign up for the race here, and then email us at [email protected] and let us know you’re coming so that our team can include them in the group meet-up at the event. 

Running in the event is not required to join us, so if you’ll be in the area and would like to join our meet-up, email us at [email protected].
