Running News – September 2020 (Minisode)

Hello Runners,

Well, it is now September, and the summer is just about over. Only four more months until 2021. Let’s hope things turn around. I am looking forward to the cooler, crisper fall air. Great for running!

This is a shorter episode. I’m in between trips. Just got back from Pittsburgh and am heading to Los Angeles for a week. While there, I will be running with the Skid Row Running Club and recording a podcast. So excited!

There was another woman runner who was just out for a nice run, and a psychopath turned around after passing her then abducted, assaulted and killed her. Her name is Sydney Sutherland, a beautiful 25 year old woman.

Ladies, the reality is when you run you must be aware of your surroundings and take the appropriate precautions to stay safe. Please listen to Episode #9. Tasha Ina Church is a Self-Defense Instructor, and she gives so many tips and techniques that will help you if you find yourself in a dangerous situation.

The Alive and Running Virtual 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention will be held on Sunday, September 13, 2020. I believe strongly in this organization and will be doing this here in Denver. Suicides are increasing due to the struggles of the pandemic. Get involved with this event.

You will enjoy the running-related stories I selected for this episode. Enjoy! Keep running, and be safe out there!

~ Jim
