Episode 14-Home again, Interview with my mom, Bar-B-Q 101




Episode 14 was recorded "down east" in North Carolina. On a trip home, we record while on the weekly long run.

While this episode is not as heavy as some recently, I know you will find it interesting. We begin by discussing the difference between Eastern style Bar-B-Q and Lexington style Bar-B-Q (yes, them's fightin' words!) While we explain the difference, I also made a couple of Bar-B-Q restaurant recommendations if you are in North Carolina and want to sample either--or both.

My mother and I also sit down under her carport and have a discussion about my early life and the impact running played as I adjusted to life living with her, my half-brother and my step-dad. My step-dad played a very important role in my life during my teen years.

We close things out by winding up the long run. It was a good one and I felt great. I hope your training is going well also. I appreciate you listening.

Send me an email with (or without) an audio file. Let me hear from you. Your participation is what makes this work and I enjoy hearing from you, the listener. Why not take a moment now and send me a question or comment, or information on your most recent race (including photos). I will post the photos and try to share your questions or comments on the show.

Hope your week is a good one. Be careful in the heat. And as always,

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