RunRunLive – Podcast Intro



Hello and welcome survivors of the zombie apocalypse.  With your speed and endurance you have out-run and out-fought the undead and stand here with me ready to celebrate another Saturnalia.

But, of course this is Chris and this is the RunRunLive Podcasst and we do have a great show for you today.  I chat with Dr. Coyne from deep frozen Canada about nutrition.

Nutrition is a tricky topic.  Everyone has a view and everyone is convinced they have the answers.  Apparently they don’t because we still see a populace that is suffering and confused.   I don’t claim to have the answers but you and I we are students of this world and we ask questions and listen.  That is how we get stronger.

My foot is actually feeling pretty good this week.  And I’ve been getting some great workouts in  – not running but at least working out fairly intensively and consistently.

Dr. Hester told me to finish up the Pt and see if it helps.  If it doesn’t he’s going to get an MRI and potentially blast it with that sonic thing they use to break up gallstones.  It’s crazy.  If I knew how much money this was going to cost me in medical bills I could have just bought a $5000 racing bike and taken the year off!

It’s worth noting that I don’t do a Christmas show or a Halloween show or your ‘what to buy’ show or ‘New Year’s Resolution’ show.  That’s just lazy podcasting people!

I will slip in some of Jim’s excellent Saturnalia music Next week though.  Because it is excellent.

I gave blood this week.  Here’s a good tip for you; nurses have the best stories.  I asked them what their best story was and they started reeling off stories of people passing out, falling off the tables, having seizures, losing control of their umm… bodily functions… None of that happened to me, but I did skip my workout in deference.

I think the best story was of a high school principal who was giving blood as an example in front of all the students and he passed out and pooped and peed himself in front of the student body – that’s karma.  So if you find yourself at a holiday party with a nurse, ask them to tell some stories!

Seriously folks, I hope you all have a great Saturnalia.  Hug your loved ones.  You can’t change the way they act, but you can change how you respond and there is no such thing as wasted effort.

On with this show!

It took me a few months…but I kept at it and now can present to you The Mid-Packer’s Lament Audio book.  This is ~50 running stories read into audio by the author (me) and ends up being 6-8 hours of audio.

The Mid-Packer’s Lament is a series of short stories on long distance running, racing and the human comedy inherent in all sports enthusiasts.  This is the perfect book for runners and wannabe runners.  There are stories about training, eating, special places and special races.  There are stories about the accidental athlete in all of us and the stupid things we do for even amateur endeavors.  Whether you are a weekend mid-pack runner or a competitive club runner, you’ll find something thought provoking and amusing that you can relate to in the Mid-Packer’s Lament.

Hope you enjoy consuming it as much as I enjoyed recording it!

Ciao, thanks, and I’ll see you out there.

Ok my tired and perplexed survivors you have barricaded out the marauding undead until reaching the end of yet another RunRunLive Podcast – Episode 204 in the can.

I have to admit I’ve been playing an online zombie game in Google chrome called Dead Frontier with one of my daughters.  I’m a level 21 Farmer with rifle skills named Maddog2 if you want to go hunting with me some night.  It’s free.

I’ve got some great shows coming up, chatted with Dave McGillivary the RD of Boston about the new standards this week and that will be in episode 207 – very interesting.

Don’t forget to check out Steve Chopper’s and JayDub’s new podcast.  The first show will be recorded in December 2011 and released simultaneously on the AMWM and BHAG feeds. The AMWM feed will then be renamed Run World Radio and subscribers will get the show
automatically. The BHAG subscribers will then “retune” if necessary after the first couple of weeks of simultaneous feed.

Also download our friend Kevin’s podcasts which now consist of The extra mile, the extra mile Galloway edition and the Extra mile to beat breast cancer.  Great stuff.  While you at it subscribe to the Slow Runner’s club with Eddie and Adam – they are a hoot.

Next week we chat with another fantastic success story from the community – Rick from Fat guy running – about his journey – great stuff.

I was at the Doctor this week and a guy stood next to me at the counter.  He looked to be about my age maybe 70 pounds heavier. Definitely a heart-attack candidate if you know what I mean.  They asked him his date of birth and based on his response I quickly deducted that he was 5 years younger than me.

I had a Schadenfreude moment.  I thought to myself “I’m in way better shape than that guy.  He’s on the fast track into the grave.”  When I was his age I was running mountains and ultras.  It helped me put my injury in perspective.

I’ve been trying to get Buddy out for walks in the woods every day I’m home.  We went out for a 2 and a half hour hike on Saturday and he was sore the next day.  But since then he is lighting up.  He’s got that spark back in his eye when I come home. Prancing around like a puppy.

Exercise is good for people and Dogs.

I gave up on dieting for the holidays but it’s ok because I’m getting my workouts in.  I got some positive feedback on the IronMan idea.  We’ll see where it goes.

With many of us getting ready for the holidays I thought I’d give you something to think about.

I know this doesn’t happen in your house or in mine but I’ve heard that some people don’t get along with their close relatives.  I’ve heard that as soon as you put them together in a confined space and pour in a little alcohol they drop into old angry patterns.   They start down those same old rat holes of unforgiven past wrongs and it’s like oil and water.

All I’m going to say to you, and you know who you are, You can’t control what other people think, or do or say…but YOU CAN control how you react to it.

You may find yourself in with an excellent opportunity to break a pattern, to respond to petty digs with praise and kindness.

You may not be able to prevent the mess, but you don’t have to take part in it.

Break the pattern.

Let’s try a hypothetical example.  Cousin Suzy tells you that you look like you’ve gained some weight.  How do you respond?  How about by telling her that you noticed how lovely her hair is and how it brings out the kindness in her smile?  That will have the added benefit of confusing Suzy because you’re not playing along.

Don’t forget to take your family for a walk on Christmas Day and I’ll see you out there.


You can find me Chatting with Suzy on Twitter, Facebook, DailyMile, YouTube – and Google as cyktrussell that’s Chris yellow king tom Russell with two esses and two ells.

You can tell me all about it by dialing – 206-339-7804.  Leave a message there it sends an audio file.

How about a little holiday gift for me?  Call in a in a show intro. It is in the show notes and on the web site –- you will find all the other content on the website www.runrunlive.com

Music to take you out is one of my favorites from Colin’s files it is a creepy love song that he sings to his Garmin device.

Happy holidays,


Great news my running friends – my book of running stories “The Mid-Packer’s Lament” is now available in Kindle format at the Kindle store on Amazon.com!  Just search on “Mid-Pack”.  It’s a bargain at an easy $5 and all proceeds go towards supporting the underfunded pension plan of the retired cleaning staff at the RunRunLive world headquarters. I recently got a kindle myself and I love it.  It does reading very well.

The Mid-Packer’s Lament is a series of short stories on long distance running, racing and the human comedy inherent in all sports enthusiasts.  This is the perfect book for runners and wannabe runners.  There are stories about training, eating, special places and special races.  There are stories about the accidental athlete in all of us and the stupid things we do for even amateur endeavors.  Whether you are a weekend mid-pack runner or a competitive club runner, you’ll find something thought provoking and amusing that you can relate to in the Mid-Packer’s Lament.
