What I did this autumn. Also a Q&A with 1500 m/mile specialist Nick Willis, an Olympic silver (should be gold?!) & bronze medalist and multiple champion of other big races. I also talk a little about the Voice of America.
What I did this summer. Also an “interview” with 800 m specialist Phoebe Wright, a five-time NCAA champion and two-time Olympic Trials participant. She offers insights and tips that apply to all athletes!
Adventures. Virtual Races. Running. Cycling. What I’m doing and what my friends and others (new friends!) are doing. Join me, Alex Bruns, Lauren Mitchell, Bruce McIntosh, and Joseph Lawhorn to find out what we’ve been up to.
I continue to talk about doing some not-racing racing and adventures, and again I invite some friends to talk about what they’ve done. Join me, Aneta Zeppettella, Jennifer Keiser Russo, Alex Gold, Nick Quanrud, and Maria Borowik to get a sampling of what folks are doing.
After my last race (Ep 38), I found all my upcoming races cancelled. So I dove into some virtual racing and adventures which I discuss. Also friends join in to discuss what they did. So listen up while I talk about the Death March Bike Race, the Middletonian 5K, and the Iron Furnace Half Marathon. Plus we hear from Fred Hatfield, Nate Canton, and Greg Henneman.
In episode 38 I talk about running the Cactus Classic Trail Races near Peoria, Illinois. Also the Frosty 14 trail race near Waynesville, Ohio. Finally I talk with Yo Yo Man Scott Searle. Listen to how he became the Yo Yo Man, and his fascinating backstory that got him into running! Check out pictures below as well.

In episode 36 I talk about running the JFK 50 Mile. I interview fellow finishers Marisa and Alexandra as well. These two women are impressive in every way! You’ll learn all about the race and my brief stay in Pittsburgh after the race. Lots of photos below.
In episode 35 I talk about running the Hawkeye Fallout 50K. My daughter ran the 25K. The next day I did the Run For The Schools Half Marathon and my daughter did the 10K. Both of these are in/near Iowa City, Iowa. I interview my daughter and also Brian Tharp, co-owner of We Run in North Liberty, IA and the Hawkeye Fallout races.
I completely forgot to take pictures of the trail sections! But I got some at the spillway and on the crushed gravel paths.
In episode 34 I recap much of my last six months. Some about our vacation last summer. Some about racing I did this fall. Some about the cross country team I coach. I chat with some friends about biking and cyclocross. And finally a review of the book Wild, by Cheryl Strayed.
