    Great episode
    Really enjoyed your latest episode about pain
  • VgnMtnRunrWoof
    Injured Runner Approved
    I have been dealing with two back to back big injuries the last 4.5 months (stress fracture and ligament tear) and have been listening to this podcast nonstop from the beginning while in recovery mode. Thanks to Brodie and guests I’ve started taking seriously: strength training, protein intake, rest days, cross training (swimming+cycling)- so hopefully when I return to running I can stay injury free and be a stronger runner than before. Thank you for making all of this information so readily available!!!

    The Run Smarter podcast
    Brodie thank you for providing runners with the stools and education to manage their injuries. I was a frequent injury sufferer but since I started listening to your podcasts and following your recommendations I’ve been injury free for the last three marathon training cycles. I ran two world major marathons weeks apart and ran two personal best. I true testament to your guidance and education. Your podcasts are truly valuable to all runners looking to reduce injury risks. I cannot say enough good things about your and your character. Your credibility and your professionalism is superb. I cannot say enough good things nor thank you enough for your services, education and your time spent educating runners. This podcast is LIFE❤️
  • dear running
    This episode is GOLD
    Brodie! This episode is GOLD. So many wonderful takeaways. And, more than that the encouragement and ways to overcome and continue running NO MATTER WHAT are Olympic quality! Keep the interviews coming… you’re so good at gleaning great content from great people / runners!
  • Any rand fan
    Trying to contain my enthusiasm about The Run Smarter Podcast but when you are separated from the hobby that you love because of an injury and find someone like Brodie Sharpe to help you recover for the long term there is much cause for celebration. This is the real deal for anyone who loves to run. Jim, Elon, NC
  • Sandiegojoey
    Best podcast for injured athletes!
    I’m an aged competitor, a “hybrid athlete” as they say, an even amount of running and strength. Unfortunately a chronic running condition (Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy) has hampered my performance for years and ultimately sidelined me. After listening to Brodie’s podcast I felt like he was speaking directly to me! So much so that I hired him after undergoing bilateral PRP injection in both hamstring tendons. I’m confident he’ll get me back to doing what I love, Spartan and Hyrox competitions!
  • almost fading
    A Must listen for runners!
    Great podcast, lots of motivational tips. Excellent host and guests
  • GGG!!!
    Great Injury Prevention Show!
    Such a great show, as a runner I’m always looking for ways to prevent injuries and this show keeps me running!
  • Ultrarachel
    Eye opening
    There is a wealth of knowledge to gain here. Thanks to this podcast I feel confident I will be able to run well into my 50 and 60s without serious injury. Well done Brodie.
  • LisaIsHereForIt
    Run Better & Smarter! 🏃
    Run Smarter has quickly become a favorite in my feed! I'm consistently impressed by the engaging conversations, insightful content, and actionable ideas. I truly learn something every time I listen!
  • Maekolet
    Great information for the injury prone runners out there.
    I’ve learned so much from listening to the episodes focused on injury recovery and prevention. I was able to get back to running after needing to take several months off because of injury by following what I learned from the podcast.
  • mikeepp
    Great content!
    Brodie has a very solid approach to running and managing injuries, pain, recovery, and strength.
  • jm apple reviews
    Dedicated to teaching and learning
    Brodie Sharp is a physio(physical therapist) that is determined to learn everything he can to help runners be successful with their running goals while minimizing injuries and to recover from injuries as consistently as possible. He believes the best way to do that is with education. The important thing is that he doesn’t assume he has all the answers, instead he tries to bring a variety of guests. He is genuine in listening to them to make sure they have a chance to communicate their knowledge and is really good at tying up the key takeaways. At the same time, he doesn’t accept things at face value and digs for the scientific evidence to help evaluate the presented information. There is a ton of content in these podcasts, and well worth the time of any runner
  • DesiGirl Runs Mountains
    Fantastic overall !!
    It’s like having a PT in your phone all the time that you have access to all the time !
  • Rosecam11
    Nip those aches/niggles/injuries in the bud!
    I’m still new to this podcast but it has already helped me address my Achilles issues and nip some ITB irritation in the bud. It is so incredibly clear and informative. I’m looking forward to listening more and learning to train and run smarter!
  • wayz
    Learning so much
    It was when I found myself anxiously awaiting Part 2 of the Patrick McGilvray interview that it clicked with me how much I’ve grown to love this podcast. There has been such a broad range of useful and informative interviews without ever being too dense. Just a great and enjoyable podcast all around.
  • MOultraRunner
    hands down the best running podcast
    as a serious, amateur ultrarunner, who has gone through 8 weeks of physical therapy for IT band syndrome, I appreciate all of the injury prevention knowledge, along with all of the other running wisdom in this podcast. it’s thoughtful, grade A information for a runner of any level. I’ve suggested this one to all of my running buddies.
  • kristen_runyourlife
    Love this podcast!
    As a runner and physical therapist who works with runners myself the information in this podcast is gold! Highly recommend.

    Is there anyway you could get DDP diamond Dallas page on to talk about the kind of yoga he does and I will most likely go against what your latest episode says about yoga
  • CoachJHudgins
    Exactly what every new runner needs
    Having been a strength athlete and team sport athlete previously, I had done very little endurance running. Now training for triathlon, I’ve been really looking to find a better resource for guiding me through the inherent increased risks of endurance running. THIS is the best resource out there. I’ve tried all them. Lol.
  • Mulray
    Excellent information!
    I listen to a lot of podcasts and I’m always looking for podcasts like this that can help me become better in very specific ways. The Run Smarter podcast includes tons of excellent information that I can use to not only rehabilitate from my running injuries but also to prevent them. Highly recommend this podcast for any runners or athletes interested in learning more about how our bodies react to training.
  • Jon from MKE
    Great podcast for all types of runners
    The Run Smarter Podcast is educational without being boring. The subject matter is varied and I feel runners of all types and abilities will find the information useful. Strongly recommend listening from the start because the episodes build upon each other.
  • jnow87
    Every runner should listen up...
    A fast favorite running podcast. Full of practical and applicable tips spanning a wide range of topics. Not too bogged down by scientific details, but obviously evidence-based. I only wish I had found it before I suffered an injury! In my opinion, a must listen for all types of runners.
  • Yooper84
    Wealth of Knowledge
    I love the content, the focus on clinical evidence and strength training. The premise of the rest-weakness downward spiral is eye opening. Every episode teaches or reinforces information that will improve your running.
  • ds57684
    A Breath of Fresh Air
    I recently discovered Brodie’s podcast and have been consistently listening to the episodes and diving into the archives. He is a well informed physio who interviews qualified individuals. He and his guests consistently provides evidenced based advise on a variety of running related topics. As a fellow physical therapist who specializes in working with runners and running biomechanics, this podcast has been a break of fresh air. There is so much information out there and the hard part is finding the good stuff. This is some good stuff. Thanks Brodie!
  • CJT322
    Great advice. Extensive topics!
    What a great podcast with evidence-backed and real explanations behind running injury, rehab, person and other great running advice! I’m a 42 year mom of 4, and former athlete who is getting back into this sport. When an injury started flaring up fate led me to this podcast and it’s been a breath of fresh air and kept my hope up that I can kick this injury and get back into running!
  • Bigdogrunnin
    Loving this!
    I’m loving this!! I’m so thankful I have found this Podcast. So much valuable information, so easy to listen to and understand. I’m looking forward to listening and learning!
  • runningmominatlanta
    Thanks Brodie!
    I’m a casual runner and hopefully will be a lifelong runner. Your podcast keeps me motivated and your advice makes me a better smarter runner!
  • StevieBoy
    Great Evidence-Based Pod for Runners
    When Covid-19 took away my main source of exercise, my bike commute, I turned to running. I fell for the sport, but one of the early amazements was the frequency of runners getting injured, which unfortunately included me as well. Brodie is a great teacher, effortlessly blending the science surrounding injury prevention and recovery with a clear and enthusiastic delivery. I have learned so much from listening to this podcast. I feel in charge of my recovery because I now know what usually causes running injuries (overload) and what will help me recover. Just as important, I have greater knowledge on preventing or mitigating the next flare up and have a much more pro-active outlook should it occur. Brodie brings on great guests and he’s a really good interviewer. He harps a bit to listeners about listening to the first 10 episodes, but if you’re reluctant to go back, I’d encourage to give a listen. They do provide a solid foundation.
  • PeterParker1234
    Really good advice for overcoming injuries
    Brodie's podcast is a great listen for the many runners who deal with nagging injuries, or even better, want to learn how to prevent injuries altogether! I wholeheartedly agree that running smarter is the best way to improve your running!
  • Sandman357
    Excellent Podcast for Runners
    I’m an ultra runner & listen to many running podcasts. Brodie’s is one of my favorites! He bridges the gap between physio’s & runners. It’s like getting a chance to ask all the questions you wish you had at your last PT appointment. Lots of valuable information that’s interesting & will help you avoid injuries. If you’re injured, he’ll help you not make mistakes recovering & help you get back in action. Brodie & his guests are funny, honest & know their material. Best of all, Brodie’s friendly, responsive & will help you any way that he can. Highly recommend!
  • scott_a17
    Will never run the same!
    Check out any one of Brodie’s episodes and this channel will become your favorite podcast! As an experienced physiotherapist, everything Brodie says about biomechanics, injury prevention, and the mind are spot on. Brodie is an excellent conversationalist and I could listen to Run Smarter all day.
  • Jlaser6
    This podcast has transformed how I think about injuries and prevention. Brodie’s explanations and recommendations and clear and have helped me overcome tendon pain and I’m about to take on calf strains. I enjoy his solo episodes and the guests on the podcast. Great podcast all around!
  • RunChocolate
    So happy I found this Podcast.
    I have had one injury that has come back twice. After listening to Brodie’s recommendations, I am beginning to get some relief. I’ll be approaching 55 soon and I so look forward to running with the knowledge that Brodie is sharing with runners about injuries.
  • Travel Letty
    Super knowledgeable
    It’s hard to find good physical therapists, especially in the USA. So I came across Brodie’s podcast and absolutely loved the information that he provides. I actually loved it so much that I asked him to be featured on mine with little segments here and there. On top of that, it had been dealing with plantar fasciitis and think to Brody’s help I have seen a significant improvement! Thank you Brodie
  • journeywithmeli
    Instant Running Favorite
    I just stumbled across the Run Smarter Podcast and I’m hooked! I listened to the most recent episodes, then decided to go back and start from the beginning. The information Brodie provides is so helpful and seems well researched and scientifically proven. After decades of running, it’s nice to be able to keep up with the latest information, presented in a way that anyone can understand and practice. The Run Smarter Podcast is my new favorite for listening to on my runs.
  • Duane Scotti
    Want to run without pain? This podcast is for you!
    I am a runner and physio myself who has had their far share of running aches and pains. I just listened to the episodes on plantar fasciitis and what valuable evidence based information Dr. Brody is providing for his running community!! This will definitely be a podcast I will enjoy listening to on my long runs to keep me healthy 💪
  • Bdawg1234567

  • erinmp3
    Excellent resource for runners
    This podcast is very well done and is a tremendous resource to all runners, particularly those who are struggling with injury. Brodie is an expert or finds those who are and crafts great dialogues and conversations that are both engaging and informative. Highly recommend.
  • C9jet9r
    PT 101
    Brodie Sharpe is brilliant in bringing clarity to understanding running injuries. He has a great knowlege of how the body works and what it needs to become stronger. His digestible length shows are chock full of useful information. It is obvious that Brodie is passionate about empowering runners with knowlege. Though modest, his wisdom is remarkable. I am grateful for his podcast and recommend it to all runners, injured or not.
