We talk all things Chicago Marathon, including what you need to know before, during and after the race. We then discuss the London Marathon elite winners and what’s next for the great Kenenisa Bekele. Will we see a Bekele-Kipchoge duel on American soil in Boston?
I get right into tempo runs and why they’re important if you want to run your best race. The Boston Marathon elite fields for the men and women could be the best ever. I focus on six women and six men to keep an eye on. I also explain why I don’t like strollers during races and how two stroller racers were nothing but showboaters and disrespectful.
Welcome everyone to my new podcast 2:59:59. It’s a podcast for all of us competitive amateur runners looking for a slice of the running podcast world that fits our interests. There are no couch-to-5k tips here or unrelatable stories about 140-mile weeks and months-long training getaways at elevation. If you’re like me, a regular person who likes to run, train hard, set goals and accomplish them, this is your podcast.
In this first/pilot episode, I explain who I am, give some motivation tips when you feel sluggish, explain my favorite interval workouts and share an “interesting” story about a top runner who didn’t let a GI emergency stop her marathon.
Please feel free to comment with any feedback or suggestions for future episode topics. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
