208: Frankie Ruiz Talks Running, The Life Time Miami Marathon, & Baptist Health Brickell Run Club

Frankie Ruiz  is the Chief Running Officer at Life Time, Co-Creator of The Life Time Miami Marathon, and Co-Founder of Baptist Health Brickell Run Club, the world’s largest weekly free run club, powered by Nike! In addition, Frankie is also the City of Miami’s Chief Wellness Officer and also coaches Cross Country at Belen High School, where he has lead the team to 12 State Championships and 1 SE National Regional Nike NXN Title.

On the Marni On The Move podcast today, Frankie and I sync up about where his passion for running began, what he continues to love about the sport, and how just two decades ago, he turned his passion into his career!  2022 is the 20 year anniversary of the iconic Miami Marathon.  I get the story on how it started and how it has grown. Frankie shares insight into both the Marathon and Half Marathon race course and key things runners should know about each distance. We talk race day hydration, nutrition, and typical race day temperatures. Frankie also offers ideas on where to stay. I also get the scoop on how, when and why he started the Baptist Health Brickell Run Club and how this super fun, very social Tuesday night run club has evolved over the years.  Of course I sync up with Frankie about the exercise and wellness currently fueling him for success and he shares some of the key learnings he takes from the sport to everyday life.
