Episode 12 - Thunder Squad Interviews: Zach Chupa

Zach Chupa is no stranger to pushing the limits on speed and endurance, yet he's had to learn the hard way how to leverage a balance of running, rest, and community to fight depression.  

Dr. Mark and Sarah Hodder talk with Zach about his recent running adventures and how he copes with the emotional post-event down-cycles, which are typical for any runner but can be especially difficult for anyone faced with chronic depression.

We all know the age-old story of training for a race, only to get to the start line either injured or with no push left in the tank. We’re here to talk to Dr. Mark Cucuzzella  today about how we can train smart - not stupid!  That way we can toe the line of our next race full of energy and pep.

Dr. Mark also fields some Q&A topics about monitoring heart rate if you are AFib, handling a torn Meniscus, and the skill and art of running hills.
