The 20MR Episode 101: New Podcast Home/Marathon Plans

 PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 20 MINUTE RUNNER HAS MOVED!!!!!!

PLEASE GO TO the20minuterunner.podbean.com FOR CURRENT CONTENT!!!!!

BOOKMARK THE PODBEAN SITE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE!!!!!

EPISODES 102 AND FOLLOWING (SHOWNOTES, PODCASTS, OTHER INTERESTING STUFF) WILL BE FOUND AT the20minuterunner.podbean.com.

THANKS FOR LISTENING!!!!!! 




It's good to have you along with me for this episode. In it, I share some information about the only page that will host all of the content beginning with episode 102. This episode (101) is the last one to be hosted on blogspot. Instead, all content, including show notes, podcasts episodes, etc., will be at The20minuterunner.podbean.com only. Be sure and go to the site--if you are visiting at the blogspot site--and bookmark it for all future 20MR episodes, updates, show notes and more.

We also discuss the potential marathon training in some detail, though more information will be given in the weeks and months ahead. I apologize for the wind noise, but it was blustery--up to 35 mph! And snow on the ground made the run even more difficult, but we got through it. I am glad to have you along. Running is not a nice weather sport only, but must be pursued in ALL weather. Stay safe--and warm!


And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,

The 20 Minute Runner

The 20MR Episode 100: Favorite Episodes So Far

I can hardly believe it! Finally, the BIG 100! Welcome to the 100th episode of the podcast. While it has taken almost five years to get here, we have arrived. I worked really hard on the editing. Suffice it to say, editing this show took longer than the marathon--way longer. But, it has been a blast and so much fun.

In this very special episode, I take you back to the beginning--and a few episodes later. We share thoughts and excerpts from the following episodes: 1, 2, 9, 22, 24, 45, 50, 64, 74 and 85. While I could have included so much more material, I had to narrow it down to 10. They do, however, give you a good feel for what the podcast is about. We are still growing and developing our own way of doing the show.

So, sit back, or "pick up the pace" and settle in as we celebrate 100 episodes. Your response makes it worthwhile. It is a real joy to be here with you.

And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,

The 20 Minute Runner

The 20MR Episode 99: Who am I? What happend? What's next?

Welcome to Episode 99 of the podcast. I can't believe we are finally getting to the big 100! In  this show, I basically cover three things: who I am, what has been  happening since I was last actively podcasting and what my goals for running are for 2014. Contrary to the title of this episode, I am in my right mind...most of the time anyway.

Also, I want to encourage you to send me any well-wishes either written or in audio format to include in the 100th show. Thank you so much for listening. I am truly humbled by all of the many listeners who continue to contact me. And as Coach Jeff and I determined: I have NOT been kidnapped by aliens!

Hope to hear from you. This episode will catch you up. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did putting it together.

And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,

The 20 Minute Runner

The 20MR Episode 98: There and Back Again (with Jeff Smith)

Thanks to Coach Jeff for his help with Episode 98. We are closing in on 100. It has been so frustrating with so many things happening this year. But, I know that life is like that for all of us.

So, I know my troubles are not unlike yours. But, when we fall (literally or figuratively), we have one choice: get up again...or not. I choose to get up again and hopefully 2014 will be a great year for all of us.

Thanks again to Coach Jeff. His friendship and good 'ole "kick in the pants" attitude are what I need. Hopefully, another episode is going to follow this one very soon. Great to have you aboard.


And as always,

Thanks for sharing some of the road with me,

The 20 Minute Runner
