Julie Weiss – The Marathon Goddess – We Got This!

Hello Runners,

Happy holidays to each and everyone of you. I hope it is the best holiday you can have under the current circumstances. Do your best to enjoy!

Well the Feel Good Running podcast is now 2 years old. I cannot thank everyone enough for listening, enjoying each episode, sharing the podcast with others and helping the show to grow! I appreciate each and every one of you.

I’m starting something new for 2021, and that is Running Motivation Monday! This will be all about you! It will take your participation. All you need to do is go to this link: CLICK HERE! and leave a message. The message is: 1. What is your name, where are you from and how long have you been running? 2. What has inspired and motivated you to run? 3. Why do you keep running and why is running so important to you? 4. What is your favorite inspirational quote?

Your words, your reasons, your message will inspire and motivate others!

My guest this episode is the Marathon Goddess herself, Julie Weiss. Back in 2012-2013 Julie ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks in support of pancreatic cancer that took the life of her father Maurice. Her book, The Miles and Trials of a Marathon Goddess, goes through her rough young life and turbulent relationship with her father until she discovered running. That changed everything. After her father passed, running took on an entirely new meaning.

Julie is an amazing woman, and her story is so inspirational and motivating! It was a pleasure to have spent time talking to her. You will enjoy this episode. There is also a beautiful little story her husband Coach David Levine tells at the end.

Be well, and be safe runners. Wear your mask in public. Please be kind and courteous to others, and share our love of the sport of running!

Happy Holidays and Keep running!

~ Jim
