T20MR Episode 18-To boldly run longer than I have ever run before...







Welcome to Episode 18. We cover a lot of ground, literally. You come along for the ride as I embark on my first attempt at 2 hours and 15 minutes (What? Am I crazy or what?) You decide.

We discuss everything from the latest gear I have on to how running can help us deal with recovery by giving a sense of accomplishment and discipline, not to mention giving us goals to reach towards--always a good thing.

Follow me as we get chased by dogs, eat Jelly Beans "live" and talk to my wife on the telephone (exciting stuff, I know). We close with the news that there has been a rash of car robberies in our neighborhood--never a good thing. Keep your doors locked and your valuables out of sight.

I also give an update on how the training is going for the half. I am using a modified version of the Hal Higdon training routine. We discuss how the canning is going with the peppers. Odie also has a cameo above lurking behind my fig bush--which we also briefly discuss.

And while I have a new pair of shoes, I won't be wearing them right away. I do have some good advice, however, about ordering your next pair that you will want to hear.

This evening run ended up being right at 15 miles, the longest I have run since I started back 13 months ago and the second longest ever; it was actually a good one. But as the darkness descends and it becomes harder to see the road, a bit of my heart sinks as well: Summer is coming to a close. But...Fall (my favorite time of year) is just around the corner, filled with cool mornings and shorts and gloves (what a neat combination).

So, it's good to have you with me for this long late-summer run. I am so glad you have joined me "to boldly run longer than I have ever run before..." If you enjoy the podcast, why not tell a friend? I would appreciate it. Thank you for listening. And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,

The 20 Minute Runner
