Hello Runners!Welcome to summer 2020! We made it!But wait…summer does not start until Saturday, June 20th. I know, I know, but in my book summer starts Memorial Day weekend!The past few episodes I spoke quite a bit about COVID-19 and how it has affected the sport of running. I even did an episode on if you should wear a mask or buff while running. Well, I am tired of talking about it. I need to take a break from it and I imagine you do also. So this episode is going to be fun!Brittany Charboneau is “The Funny Runner” and is also an elite runner! She placed 13th in the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon in Atlanta on February 29th of this year! Her time was 2:33:52 less that 5 minutes from grabbing a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team. She is laser focused for 2024.Along with being an elite runner, Brittany is a comedian, actor, wife, dirty penny collector, and a running coach. Her Jusband (the name she identifies Justin, her husband), has a new business Sugar Tats Cookie Company! Now Brittany designs her own line of cookies called Rookie Cookies.You will notice during our conversation that Brittany has a very infectious personality! And yea, she is very funny. She is very genuine. This is a great conversation!Moving on, don’t forget to sign up for the Virtual Colorado Trail Challange. It starts June 1st and goes through September 3rd. 500 miles in 95 days.

Hello Runners!Another couple of weeks have passed, and we are continuing to live with this pandemic. Even as some retail stores, parks and restaurants start to re-open, it still feels restricted. Everyone is wearing a mask. It seems so unnatural. I even see more runners out there wearing a buff. It is our current reality…the new normal. But we are survivors.So runners, has the running race you have been training for been cancelled or postponed? Many races have been, and many more will be. Are you lost and just running to run without a solid goal? Are you new to running, loving it and want more? Maybe you tried a small virtual race, but that was only good for a quick band aid.Well, this summer we have a solution! The Virtual "Colorado Trail" Challenge. My friend, Coach David Manthey, shared this with me and I said, “We immediately need to do an episode.” This will be such a welcome summertime challenge for runners. Why you ask? Well, it gives runners a solid goal all summer long! Run a total of 500 miles which you can complete within 95 days! June 1 - September 3, 2020. And you can do it anywhere, even on a "dreadmill!" My definition of a treadmill.In September of 2017, Bryan Williams, an incredible ultra-marathoner who is part of this episode, physically ran the Colorado Trail from Durango to Denver in 8 days and 30 minutes. His crew took video and pictures along the way. You can do this challenge solo or as a 2-person relay. I personally am running the relay with a friend. Also joining this episode are two other amazing ultra distance runners, Emily Booth and Jeremy Bradford who are also a part of bringing this event to life. Jeremy, by the way, completed the 3,000 mile transcontinental run across the USA in 2016. He started at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles and ended at City Hall in NYC. It took him 59 days and change.You will enjoy this episode and be motivated to sign up to do this challenge!Do you like free gifts? How about a running-related gift?

Hello Runners!Should you wear a mask while running? That is a question that has been kicked around since the Covid-19 pandemic started.We are now over two months into our lives being abruptly changed by the coronavirus. It feels like a year. I long to run with my running friends and go out to breakfast, eating away the morning after a nice run. But that is probably far off. I am running. Actually, I ran more miles in April than I have in any month the past two years.As with many of us, I'm doing my job of staying at home, I feel I am contributing my share. That is what we are supposed to do. But I am forever grateful to the selfless front line medical workers that are working day and night to exhaustion saving people but also seeing the ugly side of death. I thank all the other workers; police, firemen, grocery store workers, and so many others that are out there keeping things going. They are putting their life on the line for us. Most are healthy some are not and have passed.We are fortunate as runners to be able to still go outside and run. But should we be wearing a mask? Well, Scientist Taisa Kushner, Coach David Manthey, and Dr. Christoper Segler give their thoughts. And a few of my serious running friends also provide their thoughts and if they wear a mask while out for a run.I hope you enjoy this episode. It's different than the others and provides you thought provoking opinions that may help you to decide if you should wear a mask. That is if you haven't already decided.If you have any comments about this topic, I would love to hear from you. And when I say hear I mean hear.

Hello Runners!How are you? Are you doing ok and getting through this pandemic as best you can? Our lives have changed for sure, and self distancing and self isolation is surely difficult especially since we never experienced anything like this in our lifetime. But we will get through it! Keep the faith.We are fortunate as runners to be able to still go outside and run. There are many runners who are doctors, nurses, police officers, pharmacists and many first responders who are putting their lives on the line to save lives. There are grocery store workers and employees in essential businesses who must work in the general public and are also potentially exposed to the COVID-19 virus. We thank each and every one of you.In this episode, I'm reaching out to the running community. What are you doing to keep your running and fitness up? Is it getting harder to stay motivated? What is your routine? We can motivate each other. I am starting a forum where you can do just that. It is important that we communicate during this time.Go to FeelGoodRunning.com and on the main page is a tab to click which gives you the opportunity to record up to a five minute audio message. Let us know what your running routine is like during this pandemic. Feel free to say a few words about what else you are doing to keep yourself busy such as movies or TV shows you are watching, family activities you are doing or even a project you have put off until now.Don't worry about messing up. I will edit pieces out of what you submit and include them in upcoming episodes. If we get good participation, I will get out two episodes a week as we go through this. This is all about you sharing with other runners! These episodes will be about 15 minutes in length.I really hope you will participate and share this with your running friends so they can send a voice message themselves. Let's start something here that is positive, inspiring and motivates us all! When you leave your message, please say your first name and where you are from.Please be safe, wash your hands, wear your mask and stay 6 feet from everyone. Stay healthy and let's hope life gets back to normal soon!~ Jim SHOW NOTESDan Frank - Ran 102 miles in 24 hours to raise money for Maryland Food Bank during COVID-19 - WMAR News 2 Report - Dan's Adventure for the Cure Page.Gareth Allen - Ran a marathon in his backyard and called it the Garden Marathon.
