Run This World with Nicole DeBoom
About This Show
Welcome to my podcast Run This World! I'm a former pro athlete turned entrepreneur who believes in the power of positivity. I feature visionaries who are creating change in the world; people who will inspire you to create positive forward change in your own worlds. The premise of the show is that you will listen to it when you’re out on a training run. The average 5k time is 36 minutes 38 seconds – that’s an 11:47 minute per mile pace. Each interview will be roughly long enough to get you through your 5k run and leave you with enough inspiration to get after it again next week.

63 - Scott Strode is Brilliant, Sober and Saving Lives through Sports
Meet Scott Strode the founder and visionary of Phoenix Multisport, a community for individuals who are recovering from substance use disorder and those who choose to live sober. Scott was a trauma survivor from early in his life. He had his first drink at 11, started doing cocaine at 15, and acted out every which way -- until one day a friend encouraged him to go to the local boxing gym and give it a try. The gym, the environment, the recovering addicts who had redefined themselves as sober athletes, lit a fire in him. It gave him the strength to quit drugs and alcohol, and over time, kindled the vision for Phoenix Multisport. Scott is now over 20 years sober and has made it his life's mission to help others who struggle with substance use disorder. I am personally very grateful for the work that Scott does because I have my own history of alcohol abuse and I believe in the power of what he is doing.
But you don’t need to be a recovering alcoholic or drug addict to relate to this interview. We all carry shame on some level, sometimes for things we did when we were 15 years old or things we did last week. The underlying point is that at certain times in our lives, we may find ourselves in need of change. Scott has incredible insight, compassion and wisdom for people who want to change their lives.
