Fdip150: Running for the Bases

Running is a universally important skill to have in life; no longer solely for the purpose of hunting, gathering and chasing down wild animals that lack the endurance we possess…but as a way to keep our bodies in shape, to help strengthen our muscles and cardiovascular system and to become the good animals we were meant to be.  In baseball, it’s one…two…three strikes you’re out; but in life you only have this one chance to live your life to the fullest, to rise off the couch of doom and to run the way you were meant to run; fast and far across the planets surface.  And just as in baseball, when you’ve run well and covered all the bases…at some point near the end; we’ll all have the chance to run home.

Fdip149: The Mens Marathon of the 29th Olympiad

The mens marathon of the 29th Olympiad will feature the fastest and most prestigious distance runners in the world today.  Those few hours and some minutes will mark the greatest race of their lives, and we will witness inspirational feats of athleticism as they run through an ancient city which is being transformed into a modern world.  While these are the best runners on an elite level which many of us will never reach, do not forget that they are also our fellow runners….they have the same passion, the same determination, the same indomitable spirit that you and I share.  For those who have or will one day run a marathon, the distance that the Olympians of the mens marathon in Bejing will run is perfectly identical to that which you will cover in your own events.  Watch the race unfold before you and think about how you’ve felt or will feel when you’re at the mile and kilometer markers that they will cross: and appreciate the association you share with those runners in the marathon of the 29th Olympiad.

RRT01: Some Time with the Good Doctor

This is episode one of a new podcast, created and presented by fellow runners around the world.

The Runners Round Table!

http://www.runnersroundtable.com

Episode 1 - Join us at the table as we share some time with our good friend Dr. Monte from the great podcast, Fitness Rocks. He shares insight he gained from an interview with Dr. Eliza Chakravarty of Stanford Medical School about how exercise (namely running) can play a major role in reducing your disability and even morbidity as you get older. Amazing stuff. Also we discuss the new developments on The Worldwide Festival of Races and a little company called Nike who is staging a vaguely similar event in 2 weeks called The Human Race 10K. We also mention our dear friend Kevin of The Extra Mile Podcast - and his call for submissions. So get out there folks and record your training for all to share and send it along...

Thanks for joining us for this live show and remember there's always an open chair waiting for you at the table.

The athletes who will run in the woman's marathon of the 29th Olympiad in Beijing China are some of the very best distance athletes in the world.  Each of them have worked incredibly hard to reach this level of competition, and to qualify to stand at the starting line in Tian'an Men Square.  What happens during this race will be historic; the moments of the event will be forever seared in the memories of those who participate and those of us who will watch the race.  We will witness the pinnacle of Athletic Achievement in a way that will inspire us to do our best, to push ourselves past our own limitations and to reach our own Olympic dreams.

Fdip147: Low Impact Living

When you make a stand and decide to change the amount of natural resources you use, such as the oil and gas used by generators to produce electricity to run your water heaters, and lights, and when you install insulation in your home to keep the heat generated from escaping into the cold and low water use shower heads to reduce the amount of clean water used in the bathroom…you are reducing your dependency on the fuel and water needed by others and the next generation who will run across this planet in years to come, after we’re gone.

The Earth does it’s best to heal itself from man made impact.  Given time and natural conditions, nature will reclaim what mankind has paved over and modified to suit our needs for resources and space.  There is such a thing as living in concert with nature, and a duty that each of us has to make the world just a little bit better for the next generation of runners to live in a world with clean fresh air, clean clear water and the beauty that can exist without impact of mankind.
