Intervals141B: Vino Corrispondenza

Have a glass of wine with me while I catch up on some emails from fellow runners.  Wine is one of my many passions.  In order to appreciate wine you have to come into it with a clear head, a clear palate and a clear nose.  Wine making dates back to 6000 BC and is a major part of the culture of many societies and religions.  Wine is also a social beverage, something to share with friends and enjoy with a good meal.  It’s good for you as well, consumed in moderation wine has been found to have both cardioprotective and chemoprotective effects.  In this short format version of my podcast, I’ll be resting my ankle and enjoying a glass of wine with you as we hear from fellow runners across the planet.

Fdip141: Running Barefoot

Today I’d like to point out something that’s really obvious; so obvious in fact, that we tend not to think about it much.  In this episode I present for you a very basic, truthful, scientific and historical bit of trivia that both describes and explains the premise which propose, and that piece of trivia is this: Fred Flintstone never wore running shoes.  Running shoes are not evil: you’ll have to pry my NB 426’s off my hot sweaty feet if you ever want me to give up my running shoes: but we should entertain the idea that running without shoes on the open road may be a more natural, less injurious way to run.

Intervals140B: Pacing Kathy

I have known my friend Kathy for many years, through many life adventures and glasses of quality wine.  In this short format episode of Phedippidations, we run the Long Island Marathon Festival of Races 10K road race in New York, with the goal of finishing in an hour or less.  This is also the story of how I met my wife and the contentious angry beginnings of a friendship that will last a lifetime, and about my incredible victory in a epic battle which took place during an all night drive to Pennsylvania a long time ago in an automobile far, far away.

Fdip140: Remembering Boston

In this episode we'll hear the stories of others who ran the 112th Boston Marathon. When you write up a race report you"re not just doing it for yourself to memorialize the even, you're doing it for others; passing on your observations so that they can incorporate it into their own form of opinion as a way to better understand the event so that we can improve our performance on race day. Its" not enough to just run the race, or even run it well, you have to tell others about your race.  Race reports are a big part of the process of running, racing and competing with each other.  It’s in this way that we give something back to our fellow runners; and with a sport that gives us all so much in terms of joy, passion, and health: the verbal or written telling of your story from the races you run is an important way to give back to this community.
