I forgot to post this previously broadcast podcast I put together for Memorial Day a couple of years ago... So I am posting now for July 4th.. an unapologetic salute to what is called our countries greatest generation. It includes music and voices of that generation to pay tribute and underline what makes me proud to be an American. If you have an extra 20 minutes this week.. please give it a listen.
Hey! Join me on a solo run and a run with J2 as we run and train for our half marathon in October. I talk about our training and J2's attempt to turn back the clock and playing some ultimate frisbee.. a physical FAIL. And I ask the question.. Why do we run and train this hard?
Hey! Well.. I didn't break the 1:30 mark for this half but that's OK.. This one was pretty tough and I gave it all I had... So take a listen to me and J2 and oh yeah Skip (aka The Freshman) as we run a loop over what will be the next half marathon for Skip and me.
I suppose my podcast can be defined as a podcast by runners.. pretty good runners, that just like to go out on these roads of ours and have a great time in not taking ourselves to serious. I think part of the fun I have in doing this podcast is laying it all out there .. the good, bad and the ugly. But maybe that is why we have a couple runners listening. I don't know?
I heard a good song the other day that I added at the end of the recording.. by the artist Paul Thorne.. "Everybody Looks Good at the Starting Line".. appropriate wouldn't you say?

Hey! Join J2 and I as we recap his latest (and maybe last) marathon. J2 ran the Rocket City marathon a couple of weeks ago and we go on a run and replay the miles.
Daily Mile profile is on Colin Hayes.. Colin is the writer, producer and performer of the EMC theme song and many parody songs (include in this epi is the classic "Toenails Turning Black"). He has been sidelined for several weeks due to various injuries, but he is coming back strong. Colin is a super guy and lives by the phrase.. "don't take yourself or really anything to serious".. as you can see by this video >> http://youtu.be/y0F081lsXlY
I included a song in this Epi by Eddie "Kookie" Byrnes called "Yulesville".. for all you hip cats out there..

Hey Join me today as I for a short run through some hills in my neighborhood. Just talked about whatever was in my head... Also I have some Promos that have been passed my way that I added. One is a promotion of a new Kindle book published by Chris Russell of the runrunlive podcast. If you listen to Chris on his podcast you can't help but hear his voice as you read this book. In addition you will hear of a new project called Run World Radio. This is a new magazine show in which 3 runners from 3 different continents catch up to talk about their running across their contrasting terrain and seasons. There will be documentary segments from our various events as well as news from the stranger side of running. We will have runcasts, thought provoking opinions, plus the very best podsafe music around.
Also I included a short profile of one of my DailyMile friends, Dominic A. Dom is a great guy and one that I can always count on for encouragement.
