The 20MR Episode 71: Reasons Why We Run #3 - Produces Discipline

Me and you and a rabbit named Snowball




Thanks for tagging along for this, Episode 71 of the podcast. This early run finds me dealing with a cat-food loving neighborhood dog...again. After the clean-up we get on with the run. Though mostly in the dark, it was a good one, as all of the runs have been lately.

A note of unsettledness, the NC Marathon may not be run in the Spring as it was last year. It might be over a year before another one is held in High Point. Based on a personal endeavor that I hope to accomplish this Spring, that's okay...probably. Time will tell. I am keeping my ears to the ground and may run the marathon at Wrightsville Beach, NC in the Spring if the aforementioned personal endeavor fails to materialize. Stay tuned.

The current running is going well, as you will hear in the updates on the training for the half in December. We are moving up the tempo, hills and long run. So far, so good. While I may not set a PR, I do hope to be in shape for a very strong showing.

Congrats to Steven over at The Devoted Runner podcast. He recently PRd by 16 minutes at his half marathon. While not his "A" race, I think that was awesome! Check out episode 30 of his podcast at the link below to hear the inspiring report.

Trunk or Treat was a blast, as the pic for this post shows. If you missed it, be sure and check out the promotional video I was involved with posted at episode 69. Over 800 kids and 1600 people came through and I believe every single child petted Snowball. Follow the link below and click on the Trunk or Treat link to view the pictures--for free!

We spend a good deal of the show discussing how running produces discipline in this third installment in the series. If you are looking to be motivated in your running--and life--I encourage you to listen to the second half of the podcast closely. You should be inspired to get out there and run.

We will tackle another issue of why we run in the next episode. I hope you stay tuned for that one out soon. And why not share the podcast with your running buddies? I would appreciate it immensely. And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,
The 20 Minute (chi) runner
