Intro:

Hello and welcome to undiscovered country podcast where we stand unsure and unknowing, blinking at the alien sun of a new world from the portico of our live’s spaceship, freshly arrived on a new world, and unhindered by the expectations of the old.

One of the star voyagers, the new people in this world turns to the other and murmers in a dramtic stage whisper – This is the RunRunLive Podcast and we’ve got a great show for you today. Welcome to episode 224.  This is Chris your host.

Today we speak with Wendy Nail.

I’m finally digesting my way through a big slug of interviews that I did earlier in the year.  It’s quite interesting to me because I haven’t listened to them since I did them a couple months ago. When I listen to the show it is new to me, just like it is to you.

Well this week has been an easy week for me.  I have stepped back from any race expectations and am just having fun, trying to strengthen my feet and thinking about new things, enjoying the spring weather.  I’m really happy all of a sudden now that I let it all go.

I’m setting new plans for new adventures that I’ll share with you over the next few sessions.  Buddy and I did a couple short barefoot runs.  It’s a new experience for me, not for him.  I have a 2km loop, well actually two 1km loops.  The first around my neighborhood on the road and the second in the woods on my trails.

My feet are getting stronger, I can feel the changes, and I think I can see them already after just a couple short weeks.  But, the pads of my feet are alight with, well, pain while I run.  You can’t cheat in bare feet.

I signed up for a sprint triathlon in July.  So that’s 3 events this summer.  The AppleMan Triathlon, the 100 on 100 in Vermont relay and the Pocatella Marathon.  I also can’t wait to get down to the Cape and run on the beach in my bare feet.  I love running on the beach.

I’m going to need to spin up some biking and swimming and lifting again because, let’s face it, 6km of slow barefoot running a week doesn’t move my calorie needle!

You ready for a new adventure?

On with the 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.

Outro:

Ok my friends, you have minced painfully down the sidewalk on broken and bruised feet to the end of yet another RunRunLive Podcast – Episode 224 in the can.

Next week we chat with my friend Kate Percy about her book “Go Faster Food” and it’s a fun chat where I have to translate from American to imperial English and back again.  It’s ok, because my English is much better than my Spanish or my French.

To take you out this week I have apiece I wrote about making the mental transition from my goal-oriented running to having a sense of adventure again.  I think one of the things we have to remember is how lucky we are to be able to get out there.  I think we have to do it for all those who never get the chance.  I think we have to stop beating ourselves up and do our thing.

It’s called “No time like the present” – http://www.runrunlive.com/no-time-like-the-present

And as you are doing that I will see you out there.

And it all happens OUT THERE!

Music to take you out is some smooth jazz so you can relax and get in that Karma mood.  It’s a piece called Afternoon on Laguna by the Duane Carter Band.

Love.

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.
