FGR #18 | 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!MilestoneThe 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!MinisodeEpisode #17 - Motivating Running News - Minisode was a hit!

There is hope! Enjoy this episode!ShareAgain 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!

FGR #17 | Motivating Running News – November 2019 – (Minisode)
Hello Runners!Well Happy Thanksgiving! Yes it is that time of year where many of you participate in your local Turkey Trot race. And there are quite a few of them around the country. I love the Turkey Trot because it is a great way to start Thanksgiving morning with a bunch of runners. And you can enjoy a great feast without the guilt! Not a bad deal if you ask me!MinisodeSo, this is the first Feel Good Running Minisode and I am excited. Simply, a Minisode is a shorter podcast than my regular podcasts where I feature a guest. This episode includes running related news stories that will inspire, motivate and entertain you! I plan to do a monthly running news Minisode which starts with November.Also, every so often I'll do a Minisode that will feature a topic such as the pros and cons of running with headphones. Speaking of headphones, there are only one brand of headphones I endorse for running and running safety. I recently had an interview all set up with this company and then they ghosted me. So, they are on my frustration list. I'll work on them after the first of the year.Please let me know how you like the Minisodes.

FGR #16 | Jason Romero – All Things are Possible!
Hello Runners, It has been awhile. And I am sorry if you are a regular listener for the gap. It won't happen again! Promise! What has been Going On? I spent most of my energy the past two months as Co-Race Director of the Maui Marathon that was held on Sunday October 13, 2019. I'm glad to say it was a huge success. And then afterward, I took off to Denver, Colorado to visit family, friends and do some Podcast interviews.  So I am back in the saddle and you can expect consistency of episodes and some changes for the good!  Thank for hanging in! Congratulations to All You Runners! Man, it is hard to believe that the 2019 running season is just about over. I always consider the NYC Marathon as the finale to the major races. However there are still a few races you can catch through the remainder of the year. Now, if you ran a race during the fall, I hope you finished and was satisfied with your results. Running is not so much about time, (well maybe to some), but about the journey as you trained for your race and ultimately successfully crossing the finish line on race day.  I've have run 101 marathons and not once in all the years did anyone ask me about my time for any of the races, they just asked what race was my favorite. So if you finished, be very proud! People will be impressed of your accomplishment and that you finished but could care less about your time. You are a rockstar! I'd also like to give a very heartfelt shoutout to all of you who qualified and got into the 2020 Boston Marathon. By adjusting the qualifying times by 5 minutes, I think this helped many more of you to finally get in that qualified. So kudos to the B.A.A. for the adjustment. Guest - Jason Romero My guest this episode is a life changer for me. Jason Romero, is the author of  Running Into the Dark. Jason has a head spinning running resume.  He has completed some of the toughest ultra races such as: Badwater 135, Leadville Trailrace 100 (and he is a Leadman - Google it), Spartathlon (Greece) Puerto Rico 150+ Endurance Run. His biggest accomplishment though and what his book centers around is his incredible journey which was Running across the USA, typically called a "transcontinental" run. What is most amazing,  Jason is legally blind and he did this journey on a shoestring budget with a shoestring crew which mostly consisted of his mom and the help of some friends that just appeared.  He ran 3,063 miles in 59.5 days averaging 51.5 miles per day starting in Santa Monica and finishing in New York City. Jason is the only blind runner to ever run across the USA and he in the top ten of the fastest runners to accomplish this.  Less than 300 have accomplished a transcontinental run on foot.  Jason's book is amazing and opens up about his life, blindness, struggles, obstacles, failures, setbacks but above all else overcoming it all to be a success! Please pick up his book today either in hardcover, paperback, digital or audio right HERE! Our conversation is open, raw, honest and emotional.
