Running Inspirational News– November 10, 2021

Hello Runners,

It’s November! Can you believe how fast this year has gone? 2022 is upon us, but first, we must get through the long, dragged-out holiday season. Maybe you like this time of the year. I do, but not for over two months. Seriously!

Well, the major fall race season is over. The New York Marathon was held last Sunday along with LA Marathon, and both went well. And yes, there were a handful of other marathons in different cities across the USA last weekend, and they too went well. A shout out to all the race directors and their staff, along with every volunteer! You made this comeback race season a success! Thank you from all of us runners. We appreciate you more than you will ever know.

Winter is upon us, and shorter, darker days have arrived with the time change. Winter is the time of year where we all must step up our motivation to keep running. It is easy to say to ourselves, well, it’s cold or dark, or the bed is nice and warm, so I will just run tomorrow. Just gear up for the weather in your area and get out the door. You will be just fine once you are outside and get the cobwebs out during your first mile. No excuses. Get out there and get it done.

In this episode, I have three inspiring running stories. They all have an element of the human spirit and others helping others. You will see the pattern weaved in each story how other runners, spectators and, rescue crews helped other runners. 

LAST CHANCE: We still want to hear about your fall 2021 race experience. Just go to There are instructions and a link that you can record a little about your race experience. I’ll put a group of them together in a future episode. Talking about your experience in your own words will motivate other runners!

Train hard, run harder, and be well. And with the holiday season upon us, it is even more necessary to be kind to others, even if some are not kind to you. It’s good for the heart, mind, and soul. So please pick up the phone and call someone you may not have connected with in some time, or reach out to a person that possibly your relationship with them has gone sour. The world needs more kindness, right!. Peace everyone!

~ Jim
