Welcome to episode 165 of the Final Surge Podcast. Today we welcome back to the show Coach Jay Johnson. Jay has a new book coming out called Consistency is Key. In the book, Jay gives 15 key points on becoming a better runner. The book is easy to get through yet has a wealth of good take-a-ways.

33:17 Nutrition is an important part of this book, but so is sleeping. When dealing with kids how do you get this point through to the kids?

39:44 My favorite part is the end where you do short blurbs with
