Like a Bigfoot Podcast #174: Josh Milich & Brian Tjersland 2 — Running 500 Miles for Mission 22

This week we welcome back Josh Milich and Brian Tjersland after their 500 mile journey in support of Mission 22 a community with the goal of putting a stop to the high amount of veteran suicides that unfortunately happen every single day.  By running from the Massachussetts National Cemetary all the way down to Arlington National Cemetary, these two raised money and awareness in every single city and state they traveled through.

We chatted with Brian and Josh last February about their lofty plan (Episode #134) and I am so excited to have them back on the show!  I’m a huge fan of these two and followed along with their live updates over the adventure and I gotta say, they might be the most positive, calm, go with the flow dudes in the country.  With a cause bigger than themselves, seemingly nothing would stop them.  Not sore feet, sleepless nights, rain, exhaustion; their minds were set on making it to the finish line no matter what.

In this episode we hear all about the “500 Miles to End Veteran Suicide Project”.  What is it like to traverse the East Coast on foot?  How do you discover the real “Rules of the Road”?  What is it like running into gigantic cities on foot?  And what lessons did they learn about themselves, Mission 22, and humanity?

I really hope you enjoy this episode!  You can still support Josh and Brian’s project until the end of the year! Really loved chatting guys!

Like a Bigfoot Podcast #173: Clark Beckham — American Idol to Marine Corps Marathon, Success through Determination

This week we welcome American Idol finalist, first time marathoner and future ultra marathoner Clark Beckham to the show!!

I recently met Clark at the finish of the Marine Corps Marathon.  Sitting there in my own state of pure exhaustion, I was re-energized by the brief synopsis of Clark’s marathon journey- 6 months earlier he was 30 pounds heavier listening to David Goggins’ book “Can’t Hurt Me” when he pulled his car over and signed up for his very first race.  He set a lofty goal of a 3:45 marathon and trained like crazy day after day after day before ultimately getting it done.  He also had the added pressure of singing the anthem to 30,000 racers, marines, and spectators before the starting gun went off!

Clark’s tale is unique and I’m super happy to get the opportunity to sit down and chat with him about it.  A solid mindset of perseverance, determination, and the ability to work hard has helped him find success both in running and in his career as a musician (he was a finalist on American Idol and is a fantastic singer!!)

Now he’s looking to take on his first 50 miler and continuing his journey into endurance and what is possible!!

Hope you guys enjoy the episode!! Happy Thanksgiving!! Thankful for all of you for tuning in!
