Intervals135B: Invitation

I have been invited to run the 112th Boston Marathon, and today I’d like to invite you to join me through this goofy little podcast.  In this short format episode of Phedippidations “Intervals‿ I extend to you an invitation to follow my progress on Patriots Day, April 21st, 2008.  Also, I talk about my gratitude for the thoughtful gift of an invitational entry to this race from a good friend and the Massachusetts Wing of the Civil Air Patrol.

Fdip135: Who do you run for?

We run for ourselves, for our health, for our family and friends, we run to honor, to celebrate, to achieve, and to accomplish.  We run because we can…because at a very basic level we are good animals who were meant to move with purpose.  We are runners; no better or worse than those who chose to practice an alternate motion of sport, or dance, or action…but we all have good reasons for being out there…and while we might not always be self aware of why we’re doing it: when someone asks you the inevitable question; you might want to consider what your answer will be…who do you run for?

Intervals134B: Living with Steve Runner

My name is John.  Today I am going to take to the microphone and, on this special episode of Intervals, give you a sense of what it’s really like to live under the brutal and maniacal dictatorship of my Dad: Steve Runner.

For today I hope to uncover the truth for you: that my father is a warped, twisted old man who refuses to buy me a puppy.  As you listen to this episode, I hope you’ll come to appreciate my plight and do everything you can to rescue me from a life with Steve Runner.

Fdip134: Online Training Logs

Because of my new intermittent schedule, this episode of Fdip has the distinction (and curse) of being the longest I’ve produced thus far.  The internet has created a way for runners to find and use resources for research, community, asking questions, sharing ideas, and for tracking our running performance.  Free online training logs are available for us to use to help us reach our running goals.  You should consider using an online training log to share your running log and upcoming schedule with a larger community of runners who can offer your advice, warn you in advance of injury and join you in your journey on the road.
