If your big goal race is over, what’s next? You can work on improving your running form. That’s what I’m doing. We’re all serious competitors but we need to change up our mindset to get the most out of our abilities. I’m calling it “competitive evolution.” A 6-year-old boy runs a marathon! Why did his parents allow this? I give my thoughts on how completely stupid it was to allow this.
The 2022 Boston Marathon is done! What a great experience. I share my time at the race, my results and assessment of my performance. I explore the elite performances on the men’s and women’s sides as well as taking time off after the marathon and enjoying it.
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.
