Tommie Runz of the Run, Eat Sleep Show Podcast and Chip Time Running, is one of our Herd Inspiring Friends. He'll join us each month and share some awesome reviews, tips, tricks, recipes and more!
Tommie's running journey began in 2018 when he was challenged to run the Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon in Chicago that year. However, his real journey to fitness and health started in January 2017 when he made the decision to choose a life of sobriety. The new found sense of freedom, control and well being that came from being sober also ultimately led Tommie to give veganism a try in early 2018. To this day, sobriety, veganism and mindfulness play a huge role in who he is as a person and a runner.
Since getting into running in 2018, Tommie has grown a solid network of running friends, founded a running apparel company called Chip Time Running, and started an Instagram Live Show and podcast called The RUN EAT SLEEP Show. As a runner, like many of us, Tommie continues to chase his goals and most recently qualified for The Boston Marathon with a chip time of 2:48:43. He aspires to continue improving on his times in the 5K through the marathon, while inspiring others to live happier, more mindful and healthier lives.
He believes that living "A Runner's Life" by running smart, eating healthy, sleeping, recovering like a pro and repeating consistently can transform our lives and the world...RUN EAT SLEEP REPEAT.
