“Get an idea behind what am I doing at every stage of the game to help develop that own inner athlete as far as posture side, stability side, body awareness side. All of those elements have to come together to really make people better.” 

In this episode, Jay Dicharry, expert in biomechanical analysis, physical therapist, and director of the REP Lab, explores what it means to develop your inner athlete so that you can perform at your best, stay uninjured, and live your healthiest life. Jay explains how he became interested in the art of running injury-free: from his technique-driven background as a competitive swimmer to being an injury-prone high school cross country runner. He discusses his inspiration to study physical therapy and how he expanded his PT work to fuse the fields of clinical practice and engineering at the University of Virginia’s Speed Clinic, where he refined his knowledge of biomechanical analysis. Jay explores why humans are meant to run, yet must also respect the principles of uniqueness and uniformity in developing one’s inner athlete. He provides insight from his current work at the REP Lab in Bend, Oregon, where he empowers athletes to correct imbalances before they affect one’s performance. Lastly, Jay shares what inspires him now, from research projects to his own training.

“Doing things in a really authentic and true way is important to me. I’d say not allowing other people’s definition of success or industry definitions of success to define my life experience and sport experience. Hopefully that I would like that people say that I helped give them permission to do the same thing. To value their own definition of success above the external definition of success.”

“The big struggle it seems to me in life is to lower your expectations on yourself, but somehow continue to try to do the things that make you feel ok about yourself. Because not everybody is going to win. You are going to do what you can do. And the big, big, big question is how do you keep doing that and esteeming what you have and what you do, without falling into utter despair and self loathing.”

In this episode, Steve Almond, author and cohost of the Dear Sugar Radio, explores the power of radical empathy in his relationship to his three young children. Steve discusses balancing fatherhood with his writing.
