The 20MR Episode 33: Christmas run

Welcome to Episode 33. Join me as we go home to Wallace for Christmas, meet with the family and enjoy a windy 12 mile run the day after. I share some information about the run and the landmarks of the area, as well as an encounter with a very large bird, a Blue Heron.

We go through the same area that almost brought disaster 30 years ago during a horrific storm. It has been that long since I've run in that part of town. The dogs were out, but thankfully they were all either restrained or friendly. Once again, I am thinking of purchasing a hydration belt, but need your input on which one might be the best. Let me know your thoughts if you would. It would come in especially handy as we begin to get into the meat of the longer runs leading up to the marathon.

I share a marathon training update--so far so good. At this point, I am on track, but the real heart of the training is still just ahead. I do not want to get into the marathon without being fully ready. If you have run a marathon, please send me an email on your experience so that I can learn from it and also share your insights with other listeners.

There are also a couple of very short segments included from my family's Christmas dinner, as well as my sister sharing the recipe for Hungarian Goulash. If you've never had it, check out the recipe and let me know how you like it. It was one of my father's specialties and the first time I had eaten any in many years.

We close by talking about New Year's resolutions. While I don't make any personally, I do trust that your running goals and life's desires come true in 2010. I look forward to sharing with you in the months to come and appreciate you listening. Let me hear from you.

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