Phedippidations

This is a podcast produced by a runner. It's not a "running podcast" per se, but it is the longest running podcast ABOUT running in history. Since 2005, Phedippidations has presented content for fellow runners who are ACTUALLY RUNNING their "Long Slow Runs". Subscribe and I promise you'll have something to think about while you get your run in. Run long, and taper.

The Podcasts

I present for you another one of my annual gadgets and gizmos review shows for some ideas on running gear and Apparatus that you might give your fellow runners for the holidays.

But I also ask you to think about the idea of giving the gift of yourself this holiday season.  Maybe, instead of heading to the shopping malls this year, you should head to your calendar and start picking out a day or two a week where you’ll make a point of going out to dinner or have a few beers or cup of coffee with a friend you haven’t spent enough time with this year. Better yet, why not plan to go for a run with a friend?

Life is short fellow runners…you know this; and one of the main obstacles to enjoying this life is all the stuff that we clutter ourselves up with: physical things like geeky Motorola Droid cell-phones, mp3 players, laptops, big screen TV’s and electronic game consoles….I’m not saying that those things aren’t cool: they are; but they pale in comparison to friendship; all we really have to spend here on this planet is time….we convert some of that time into money though employment in order to support our families and live a life with more and better stuff; but the STUFF should not be the purpose of our work...because all we have is time; and we need to use that time in a way that brings joy to ourselves and others.
