Intro:

Hello and welcome to the RunRunLive Podcast – Yah know… I actually tried this running thing out this week and I liked it.  I think I might be a natural.  Yeah, no kidding.

Thie Chris your host and welcome to Episode 240.  Today we chat with Susie about yoga for runners – and she answers some of the questions I’ve always had about that!

I went for a couple easy runs this week.  With the weather turning cooler and Buddy itching to get out we went into the trails a couple times.  Once for 20 minutes and again for 25.  Felt fine.  My foot feels great. But I’m still going to get the sonic wave treatment.

I have a call in to my orthopedist and the way it works, since they have to bring the tech and the machine in, they line up a bunch of us who need it and work through them all at the same time.

I apologize in advance but this is going to be a long show.  I wrote up my race report for the Hampshire 100 and it came out to around 14 minutes.  That plus Ann’s piece, Dr. Sarb’s piece, the interview with Susie and all the other frivolity is going to drive the time over my self-imposed 50 minutes, I think.  Thanks for your patience.

We are coming to the end of the RunRunLive Podcast series in its current form. I will keep doing something so stay tuned for my big announcements as my plans take form.  If you want to get on my mailing list go to RunRunLive.com and register, so I have your email.  I want to do something much more value added for my next project and you may want to be involved.

I’ve also reached out to some old friends in the podverse pod-o-sphere and I’m going to salt in some retrospective interviews with them as well in our last few shows.

For you new listeners, you can go to my website, www.runrunlive.com, and find 4 years worth of episodes and plenty of running talk.

It’s been a good ride.  From mountain races to ultras. From Marathons to triathlons.  And from Boston to the far corners of the world we have traveled this wondrous journey together.

So – hike up your lederhosen – and 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.

Chris,

Whilst studying for a Masters degree in Environmental Science at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Susie ran cross-country and also track – and loved the altitude!

Susie started regularly practicing yoga about six years ago and over the last few years has found yoga to be great help in the preparing for, and recovery from marathons.

Outro

OK my yoga-running afficiandos, you have twisted yourself into an unholy physical knot that can never be unraveled and found yourself at the precipitous end of yet another RunRunLive podcast – Episode 240 in the can.

Next week I chat with Greg who from the Mayan running adventure in Guatemala.  Pretty cool situation there!

Like I said in the intro, go to my website www.RunRunLive.com and register as a user so I have your email address so that when I make my next big announcement you won’t be left out!

I’m off to the UK next week for business, but I should be able to get a show out.  I tend to get a lot more done when I’m traveling because I have a lot of quiet time.

I wrote this piece this week and I hope it gives you some insight.

My stuff don’t stink…http://www.runrunlive.com/my-stuff-dont-stink

Music to take you out is another Procul Harem song, this would be the other of their two big hits from their initial studio work.  The Irish Rover song throughout the show was a version by the Blaggards and by fortunate coincidence was the very same version that was running through my head during the race and wouldn’t you know it was available on Podsafe – so there’s your weekly dose of musical karma.

Ciao

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.
