Life Is A Marathon Podcast

Life_is_a_Marathon_RevisionI am so excited to share something with you that I have been planning for the past several months!

For almost a year, a few of my close contacts have encouraged me to start a podcast. They said it would be a natural fit for my gifts given the fact that I love to speak, especially about topics on which I am passionate–namely personal development, positive thinking, and self-esteem.

Looking back over the last year of my life, I am very glad I did not start a podcast then. I see clearly now that one year ago was definitely not the right time in my life to start such a venture! However, the timing feels right, now, and all the pieces have fallen into place very nicely over the last month. So, I started researching how to set up your podcast on streaming platforms, learned how to use garageband, bought a decent microphone, and now I’m ready to begin my podcasting journey.

On September 17, 2014, after recording the first two episodes, I launched my new podcast, Life Is A Marathon, and I am very excited about the first responses to it! You can listen to the show directly from the website,, as well as being available through iTunes and Stitcher Radio.

The topics for each show will be similar to the content of my LifeThought blog posts. My goal is to write, and now speak, about topics that will help you break out of negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs, or unhealthy/unproductive behaviors, so you can live a life of joy and emotional abundance. It all centers around my life’s motto: “Life is a Marathon, so let’s train for it!”

I really hope that if any of you want to start a podcast, you’ll take inspiration from me and take the plunge. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now, and there was nothing stopping either me or you! Just ensure you get the right equipment, like audio streaming software supplied by companies like, and jump right in!

I hope that you will listen to the show and let me know what you think. If you enjoy it, please subscribe to the show through iTunes, which helps the show’s ranking and makes it easier for other people to discover the show who many not be familiar with me. As always, I’d love your comments or suggestions, and am always appreciative of how much you all share my content with others. Thank you!

    I discovered this podcast during a really difficult time in my life. My fiancé left me for another woman 5 months before our wedding and it completely decimated me as a person. I spent months in a very dark, self-hating and very angry place and was so deep in my sorrow that I lost all semblance of who I was. Then I discovered your podcast, Bruce. I started walking a my local Rail Trail every day and listening to your show. Your wisdom and your words reminded me that I am worthy of happiness and good things in my life and the way that you describe your, what I call “life lessons”, just made complete sense to me. With your help, I slowly pulled myself back up and I am now back to doing what I love (teaching music) and I have found love again. Thank you, Bruce, for being there for me, for your beautiful words and insights, and for being my friend through my darkest hour to date. I truly can’t thank you enough. You’re doing so much good. Keep it up! I’m a listener for life ♥️
