Motivating Running News – November 2019 – (Minisode)

Hello Runners!

Well Happy Thanksgiving! Yes it is that time of year where many of you participate in your local Turkey Trot race. And there are quite a few of them around the country. I love the Turkey Trot because it is a great way to start Thanksgiving morning with a bunch of runners. And you can enjoy a great feast without the guilt! Not a bad deal if you ask me!


So, this is the first Feel Good Running Minisode and I am excited. Simply, a Minisode is a shorter podcast than my regular podcasts where I feature a guest. This episode includes running related news stories that will inspire, motivate and entertain you! I plan to do a monthly running news Minisode which starts with November.

Also, every so often I’ll do a Minisode that will feature a topic such as the pros and cons of running with headphones. Speaking of headphones, there are only one brand of headphones I endorse for running and running safety. I recently had an interview all set up with this company and then they ghosted me. So, they are on my frustration list. I’ll work on them after the first of the year.

Please let me know how you like the Minisodes. Just click here to leave a comment.

Vintage Marathon Picture

I recently was looking through some old marathon photos of me. I found this one from 2004 from the Portland Maine Marathon. This was before the GPS watch revolution. I was wearing a vintage Timex Ironman Triathlon watch which you could use and click a button for your split times.
