Running Inspirational News – August 6, 2021 (Minisode)

Hello Runners,

It’s August, and we are cruising fast through the summer! Finally, fall races are upon us, and I hope you follow your training plans and are ready to crush your upcoming race.

Unfortunately, Motivation “Runday” Monday has gone away. After the initial surge, the participation was not there. But it was fun while it lasted, and I thank those that participated in an episode. Your words inspired runners.

The excellent news, Inspirational Running News, is back. Once the pandemic started last year, running news came to a halt unless you were into virtual races, which I am not. So now that running is back almost in full swing, I’m bringing these episodes back with a vengeance. And I have brought on a colleague from my corporate days to help find the stories and write these segments! I’m excited to bring these episodes to you. They WILL inspire you!

In this episode, I feature three inspirational running stories. Katie Spotz, Malcolm Gladwell, and Clayton Simon. Their stories are sure to inspire you! Enjoy!

Thank you for listening to the Feel Good Running Podcast, and please share this with your running friends and on your social media platforms. I would very much appreciate it.Train hard, run harder, and be well. And remember to be kind to others, even if some are not kind to you. It’s good for the soul

~ Jim
