The Successful Diligence Podcast
Just Ask Spirit
In this episode, I’m excited to speak to David Richman. David is an entrepreneur, author, public speaker, endurance athlete, and philanthropist who brings the lessons learned in his life to enrich and inspire others. He pushed out of his comfort zone as a sedentary, overweight smoker stuck in an abusive and unhealthy marriage to seek true satisfaction in his life. That meant quitting an addiction to focusing on what others wanted out of him, and go full-throttle for what he wanted for himself.
How should we be running? What are forefront, mid strike, and heel strike running? How did David transform his running form? What is the benefit of shortening our stride length? What is the importance of having a strong core for running? Why should we increase our cadence? What sort of shoes should we wear to run?

Or will we close out the world and fall deeper into ourselves, completely absorbed by the horrific nature of our reality?
