Michael & Anita – “A Match Made in Running Heaven!”

Hi Runners,

Happy holiday season everyone!

As we wind down this year and decade it is a time to reflect on what you accomplished as a runner. And when I say runner, I mean everyone that laces up their running shoes and goes out there each time to better themselves.

So this past year maybe you trained for a race? Maybe ran a marathon, 10k, 5k or even an ultra. Or maybe you just ran for the physical health benefits or mental healing or whatever reason? So many people have amazing stories of how running has been so life changing and very important to their life.

We have had some of these people as guests in 2019. One special episode that comes to mine is #12 Bonnie VanDeraa. This was just an amazing story and continues to inspire people. Take a listen. So, whatever you accomplished this year be proud! You did it!


The Feel Good Running Podcast is one year old! Yup, on December 3rd we celebrated our first year! I cannot thank you enough for giving me a chance and listening to my podcast. I appreciate each and ever one of you.

In 2020, you can expect more episodes with wonderful guests that will inspire and motivate you. These are everyday runners like you and me with a story to tell!


Episode #17 – Motivating Running News Minisode was a hit! This is a shorter episode that features running news stories that inspire, motivate and entertain. You can be sure I will be doing more, and as a matter of fact, you can expect another one this month just before Christmas!


Michael Klee and Anita Zonker are a wonderful couple. They met in my former running club, Runners Edge of the Rockies in Denver. Both are very close friends of mine and we have a lot of history.

But that aside, this is a heartwarming story of two people later in life that found each other through running and fell in love. So those of you looking for that special someone, well, don’t give up. There is hope! Enjoy this episode!


Again I want to thank you for listening to my podcast! You can really help out by leaving a rating and review on Apple Podcast, Podchaser, Stitcher, or Spotify! And please share Feel Good Running podcast with your friends and on Social Media. It would mean the world to me!

Thanks again for listening and enjoy this heartwarming episode!
