Episode 4-Electrolyte replenishment, Roland's History (part 1)

Episode 4 is complete. In it, you will go with me for the weekly long run. We will discuss the pros and cons of jelly beans vs. gels for electrolyte replenishment. You may be surprised at my recommendation; I was.

I also tell you a bit about my early running life, including information about my family and upbringing. The issue of overcoming problems brought on through relational issues is also a part of our discussion. My oldest brother Sammy was a big player in my early days of running. This 1982 picture taken at a Goldsboro, NC 10 K testifies to that. (Yes, it was very hot and that is a wet rag on Sammy's head).

Good to hear Nigel, Running From the Reaper, is feeling better and a part of the podcasting community again as well. We close by discussing the importance of having goals and sticking with them. "Rome wasn't built in a day." But they did get it finished!

I hope you will be uplifted, encouraged and inspired in your training as you run. Remember: this is a two-way street. I am encouraged by your feedback; I thank you for your kind comments on how running together is motivating you. If just one person becomes more determined and focused to continue in the running life by listening, then my goal with this episode will be accomplished.

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,
The 20 Minute Runner

  1. I like the beans for the same reason - they are fun and easy to chew. Some things are too chewy and get stuck in your teeth!
