530. Friendship Fest with Jess Movold & Conor Nickel

Ali on the Run Show

"You convinced me to come out for a run. And thank god I did. Everything has snowballed from that run." What a treat today to get to welcome two of my favorite friends to Friendship Fest on the Ali on the Run Show! Jess Movold and Conor Nickel are New York City-based run coaches who met one fateful day several years ago at Mile High Run Club, where they were each auditioning to be instructors. Now, they are not only the best of friends, they also continue to work together: Conor is the Chief Operating Officer at The Fortitude Strength Club, which is co-owned by Jess's husband, Kyle, and is where Jess is also a coach. In this conversation, we get to know new-to-the-show Conor — a former runner at the University of Pennsylvania who has worked in the running industry for his entire adult life. (You'll love his stories from working the start line of the New York City Marathon!) And we get an update from fan-favorite Jess, who gave birth to her first baby, a boy very appropriately named Battle, when she was just 26 weeks pregnant. (The day we recorded this, Battle turned 11 weeks old! He's still in the NICU getting big and strong, and Jess continues to prove her strength by navigating new motherhood as a NICU parent.) Jess and Conor's friendship is filled with pride and admiration — and plenty of laughter. Also: There's a part in this conversation where Conor is talking about the tunnels underneath NYC, and Jess mentions people living down there. My mind went to fantasy-type stories — perhaps I've been watching Trolls too much lately with my daughter — but Jess shared the title of a book, The Mole People, which is about the homeless population that lives beneath NYC. I ordered myself a copy and am looking forward to digging in and learning about something I, clearly, had no idea about. (When Jess mentioned this, I responded, "Cool!" because I thought surely that wasn't real and was thinking it was adventure-seekers below the surface. It's not that at all. The more you know indeed.)

"I didn’t prepare for it. I wasn’t ready for it. It was very, very hard, and dark, and scary." Welcome to the second episode in the new Beyond the Run series on the Ali on the Run Show. Twice a month, we're checking in with industry experts, professional runners, and everyday runners to talk about the intersection of running and mental wellness.

88. Wellness and Cancer with Jess Movold

INTERLUDE

On today’s episode, I am sharing with you a conversation from an Instagram Live that I did this week with Jess Movold. Jess is a running and strength coach- she is one of the running coaches at Runner’s World and a strength coach at The Fort in NYC. This conversation focuses on the importance of wellness- exercise (lots on running and strength training), goal setting, nutrition, hydration, sleep, recovery and much more– and how that relates to cancer risk and risk reduction. We speak about the importance of finding your “why,” making small changes, and being your own advocate. This is a great episode for anyone who wants to get started in their fitness journey, make changes in their current routine, or just for a little bit of inspiration to get moving. Remember – movement is medicine!

RUN WEEK: Everything You Need to Know About The Long Run With Coach Jess Movold

Hurdle

Welcome to Run Week on Hurdle! In celebration of Global Running Day on Wednesday, June 2, I’m bringing five back-to-back episodes dedicated to the sport that changed my life. That’s not an exaggeration. As many of you know, I started running back in college with a half-mile every single day for a summer. Over the years, that half mile became a mile, that mile became a 5K, and well — now I’m a nine-time marathoner and certified run coach via the United Endurance Sports Coaching Academy. I know we have a lot of runners in the Hurdle community, and I made it pretty clear at the start of season 6 that my goal is to cover all areas of wellness. But, I couldn’t let this week go by without doing something special.  I’m super amped about the line-up of guests this week kicking off with Jess Movold. She’s known by many as a coach for Runner’s World, based here in New York, and a long-time friend of mine. Today we are chatting about the long run, what it is and how it can differ in length depending on your goals, how to do it better, strategies that you can implement on this particular workout to better slay your next race, and so much more. She’s also got a pretty rough first marathon story to share with all of you, which includes and unfortunate incident with some white shorts (you may be able to guess where this one is going.)

147. Jess Movold, Running & Strength Coach

Ali on the Run Show

“He said, ‘I get it. The mountain’s too steep.’ And I said, ‘No. It’s just the wrong mountain.’” Jess Movold is perhaps best known as the super positive, super uplifting, super kind and empowering run and strength coach at Mile High Run Club and The Fortitude Strength Club in NYC. She's the current face of Runner's World (check her out on the cover!), and is the official "Runner's World Coach." So surely the 3:13 marathoner and 1:29 half marathoner from Missouri always envisioned this über-fit life for herself, right? Not quite. Jess began her career in the fashion industry, and she has stories that rival the ones in The Devil Wears Prada. On this episode, she shares her journey from high fashion to ultramarathons, and it's one that's packed with endearing and hilarious stories along the way — including the best "nothing new on race day" story I've ever heard. Up next: Jess wants to break three hours at the Berlin Marathon.
