Episode 7-Going home, heat and the long run














This episode proves that you "can go home again." I don't know what Tom Wolfe was thinking when he said you could not. Anyway, we open with my wife and I arriving at my mother's house for supper (this is the evening meal if you are from the South). After a few anxious minutes related to my being late--or so my mom said, we settle down for a meal. Listen in for a few minutes as we chit-chat and talk about the weather--literally (and other things of course).

From there, you join me for the beginning and closing moments of a very warm long run (just shy of 11 miles). Along the way, we talk about equipment, gels--yet again, and how to cope with the heat. It was a long, warm run, but we made it.

I hope to have a race report from the 10K in Greensboro, NC for episode 8. While I don't know what my time will be, I secretly hope to break 50 minutes; we shall see.

So, pull up a chair, grab a biscuit (homemade I hope), and pass the molasses. Thanks for visiting with me and the family and going on a run together.

Pictured above are my mother and me (left), and my mother, step-father, wife (Cindy) and our niece. The pictures were taken in my mother's front yard.

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