The Ol' Switcheroo

The Ol' Switcheroo
keep on keepin' on 

After much consideration & deliberation, I am discontinuing this RunGnosis project. This was a passion project dedicated to the more esoteric side of running that I felt I needed to explore through writing. I had hoped to create a consistent newsletter that highlighted unusual & interesting stories that are the part & parcel of distance running culture. Unfortunately, I simply ran out of that passion to continue it. Instead, I am returning to my Running on Purpose podcast & will be launching that on Substack in the coming weeks. One of the most important lessons I have learned over the last 4-5 years is that one needs to learn to let go & move on when something is not finding an audience.

The move will allow me to link everything more seamlessly to the overall communication & marketing vision of Telos Running without having multiple outlets for my creative drive. I'll still be exploring the body, mind & soul of running but I can also pursue my goal of writing & podcasting to a larger audience. My plan is to bring some of this content over to the Running on Purpose Substack & to explore it more deeply through linking it to their more robust platform, especially in terms of podcasting. I will also return to deep dives exploring training & racing - as I did in the initial 20 episodes of the RoP podcast - as well as those wilder & weirder aspects I had hoped to pursue here with RunGnosis.

I have exported all of your email contact to that site & you will be receiving the first episode in the reboot without needing to do anything. If you would prefer not to receive the new content, simply email me at [sisson at telos running dot com]. I will take you off the list.

Otherwise, I'll see you again in a few weeks.
