Have you ever bonked on a race? Do you want to know how to avoid GI problems with running? Do you want to know what causes fatigue with running? Would you like more energy for your runs?
Well… UCAN have energy for running and you don’t have to bonk during your next event.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Matt Bach, Director of Endurance Athletics at UCAN and he shared his own personal experience as an Ironman champion. He also shares the origin story of the brand and products you know so well!
When developing this product, the ultimate goal was to help in saving the life of a young boy named Jonah. Many professional and collegiate athletes have incorporated UCAN into their daily lives since then! Runners have especially found UCAN to be beneficial to their training. The story of UCAN is a powerful one that we want to showcase here at SPARK. If you want to learn more, please check out the website here.

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!! I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive. Coach Lu would adjust the training plan to my schedule which made it easier for me to follow. Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury. Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal! I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level. Just be consistent and trust the process, you will crush your next race with this team!”
“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”
Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.
I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!
The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
