Pace the Nation – Sandwich Todd

Sandwich Todd, one of the podcast’s first guests, returns to talk about how running has helped him manage anxiety.


 

We open up pre-agenda barely able to contain our excitement over two American records on the track.

At (11:57) we catch up with three-time guest (Episodes 914, & 59) Sandwich Todd (@SandwichTodd) and ask him to confirm his appearances on the show.

At (14:31) Todd talks about his anxiety disorder and when it first occurred.

At (18:00) Todd speaks about some of the strategies he uses to manage the anxiety such as cognitive behavior therapy.

At (20:28) we talk a little about the public perceptions and how social media can influence anxiety. At (21:12) Farley brags about his research and asks about how running has helped calm Todds anxiety.

At (24:13) we talk about how strava helps create accountability and then at (25:58) Todd talks more about the benefits of running for his anxiety.

At (28:56) we ask Todd about his anxiety on his running off days.

At (33:13) we talk about how sharing the story helps show people that they are not alone.

We are back at (38:52) to wrap up the interview before we transition to our grab bag topics.

At (39:36) Farley unsuccessfully attempts to create a new podcast rivalry, however Joanna instead uses the segment to provide some comments on Episode 162.

At (43:26) Docs has to get a new cell phone adventure.

At (47:55) we have an update on former guest Tom Griffin, who finished his walk across America this week.
