Run This World

150 – “I’ve Always Loved Change” Runners Brittany Charboneau and Jenni Nettik Trust Their Guts

Meet Brittany Charboneau and Jenni Nettik – runners, coaches, dreamers, fun-creators. Brittany is one of the country’s newest distance stars, fresh off a win at the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon and gunning for the 2020 Marathon Trials. Jenni is the founder of Mercuria Running, a coaching business that focuses on more than just running – it’s about nurturing a passion for the sport without the “at all costs” philosophy of most hard core programs.

I don’t often interview two people at the same time. It can be awkward, technically difficult and sometimes tough to keep a smooth conversation rolling. This episode is anything but awkward, difficult or tough. It is fun, easy-going, insightful and full of tips (big and small) to help you dig deeper into yourselves. Plus we do a little improv (admittedly slightly awkwardly!) in the middle so that will keep your attention!

We cover the following and so much more:

  • Passion and day jobs
  • Life Plan: how Brittany quit her job after her company, Otterbox, helped her create her life plan!
  • Why listening to your gut helps make the most powerful decisions
  • Faith on your journey
  • How training for something often leads to something entirely different: Jenni’s career path
  • Combining passions: Art & running (Jenni), Acting & running (Brittany)
  • Mercuria Running: How Jenni & Brittany are creating a whole new philosophy on training and racing
