    MPP Ep 050 Leading The Boston Marathon and the Hot Chocolate 15K Race Report

    07/05/2015 Duración: 31min

    This episode is a long time coming. The time frame for this episode is all over the place because I am a professional procrastinator.  So in here I have the Hot Chocolate 15K Philadelphia race report. It wasn't really a race for us, and it was another race where we dress up and have fun. I was going to post this episode the week after the Hot Chocolate run, but then days slipped away and next thing you know some guy with a three digit race number is leading The Boston Marathon. So I talk about that a little bit. And of course my training log. By the time I actually get this episode live I will have about three or four days before the Delaware Marathon, and I talk a lot about Yasso 800s.

    I did something I thought I would never do. I joined a gym. I am a big believer in the fact that you don't need a gym to work out and be fit, but sometimes there comes a need for the gym. Principal, runner, and podcasting great Dirt Dawg is on a wicked running streak. I just listened to an episode of his podcast where he gave tips on running streaks, and I took away a few things that can be applied not only to running, but life.

    It is that time of year again. Time for the #runchathunt! A running scavenger hunt. How awesome is that? Come along as I run around town for a little while and try to find some of the things on the list. I also have some insight into how we should line up in front of potr-a-potties at races. Which is better one line per pottie or one line for multiple potties? And if everyone in the world is connected by six degrees of separation, perhaps runners have an even tighter connection with each other.
