This week on The BibRave Podcast, we welcome back former professional runner and host of The Mocko Show, Chris Mocko! We talked to Chris on the show about a year ago, and a few months later (after a solid showing at Western States) he made the difficult decision to leave professional running.

Tim and Chris talk a lot about what went into making his difficult running career call, what factors he considered, and what challenges were part of being a professional runner. Chris is a super analytical and thoughtful guy who’s unique because he doesn’t let those internal deliberations prevent him from making big (and risky!) moves. They talk about a few decision-making paradigms, with a lot of emphasis on the risks of NOT doing something versus doing.
Tim and Chris’ conversation is a bit heavier than some of Chris’s other interviews, but we found it to be super interesting and substantive!
