Running News – January 2020 (Minisode)

Hello Runners!

How are you? How was your January, the first month of the new year and decade? How is your running so far? Did you do a race yet? Did you set your 2020 goals? Are you training?

If you are a new runner and have stuck with it for the month of January, how do you feel? Are you happy with your results thus far? Stick with it, keep running, and don’t ever give up. You can do it! I know you can.

Well runners, I’m giving up paradise…the warm weather, beautiful beaches, endless beauty and wonderful people. I’m leaving Maui, Hawaii and moving to Denver, Colorado! Yes, now I will be wearing warm clothes, jackets, gloves, hats and long johns.

Seriously, Colorado is a beautiful state and I moved to Maui from Denver so I know the city and state well. I’m so excited to again run the beautiful bike trails and trails and re-engage with my running friends. But most important, I look forward to spending lots of time with two wonderful little grandkids, Carson and Easton!

I love Colorado and am looking forward to being back. So all you Colorado runners, Feel Good Running Podcast will now originate in Denver! It will become even better! Maybe you can come on a tell your story? Send me a Email to Jim Lynch at and let me know about any pub runs and group runs around the Denver area.

You will enjoy this minisode. I have five inspirational, motivating and entertaining stories about real runners! Enjoy!

See you in Denver!

~ Jim

Running is my passion and has really defined my life. With all the support over the years I have personally received from volunteers from all the races I have done, I would like to give back.
