“Dr. Running”

Parody of call in advice show… (the joke is that the answer to every question is running)


Dr. Runner – Kevin

Caller 1: Lybbe

Caller 2: Jenm

Caller 3: BostonCardioVet

Caller 4: SoloRunner

Caller 5: Mad Dog.

Scene opens – callers with questions – bumper music and show jingle

DR: (Talk show voice) Hello this is Dr. Running and welcome to the “Better Living through Running” show…Our sqwtichboards are open so give us a call and ask your question…

Hello – you’ve got Dr. Running, you’re live on the show, what’s your question?

C1. (fawning) Yeah…Ummm…Dr. Running this is Lisa, first time caller, love the show…

DR: Welcome Lisa, What can I help you with?

C1: Well I’ve run my first marathon and I’m looking to get faster.  How do I do that?

DR: Great Question! You need to work some speed work, tempo training and hills into your plan – that will give you speed.

C1: Great – Thank you so much – I love the show…(cut off mid-sentence)

DR:  Dr. Running, you’re on the show, what’s your question?

C2: (laconic) I’m an over-weight coach potato, is running safe for me?

DR: Absolutely! Check out the “Couch to 5K” program and you’ll be healthy, happy and slimmer in no time.

DR: Next Caller?

C3: (questioning) I’m a 40-something guy who’s been running 5k’s and 10k’s but I feel like my life has no meaning – what should I do?

DR: Oh – great question – I get this one a lot – you need to sign up for an ultra-marathon right now and start training for it.  Nothing brings focus and meaning and purpose to a life than running for 10 hours straight…

DR: Hello, How can I help?

C4: (depressed) I hope you can help me…

DR: Yes, yes?

C4: My husband just left me for a younger woman.  I don’t know if I can go on…

DR: Well you’ve come to the right place.  Without the ole Ball-and-chain to slow you down the world is your oyster!

Go to the CoolRunning website, find a local running club and join up! Start running a 5k or 10k every weekend.

You won’t have time to be depressed.  You’ll meet healthy, happy people and maybe even get lucky! Plus – next time you see your Ex, you’ll be smokin hot and they’ll kick themselves for leaving you!

DR: OK – We’ve got time for one more call…Hello, you’re on the air…

C5: Dr. Running?  Hope you can help me, I’ve got a ticklish situation…I had a speed workout on the calendar for today but I took this pill and I’ve had an erection for 4 hours, what should I do?

DR: No problem.  Wear a running kilt, lubricate welland get to the track. This is no reason to miss a workout and as an added bonus you’ll have a place to hang your stuff up to dry.

DR: Well, that’s all the time we have for today – keep fit, keep happy and keep running – this is Dr. Running signing off

Outro music and jingle.

Quick Tip:  Don’t get cocky!

Outro –

Ok folks thanks for listening again this week – Buddy and I love to spend time with you-all.  I’m going up to the Wapack trail race this weekend but I’m not going to run – just going to volunteer and maybe do a short couple hours easy.  Then it relax and taper ‘til next Friday when I mount up with the Twitter Team for the Ragnar Relay with all our Brooks Running stuff.

I already have next week’s interview in the can and it will be a cool thing about relays.  We are going to be attempting to keep our social networking going through the race so stay tuned for that.

For today’s music – in keeping with our Celtic theme – we have a Celtic song called ‘pour me another’ by Doug Folkins I’ve got some Scottish and some Irish in me – just like Muhamad Ali it turns out – seems like all the songs are about drinking and sorrow.  But don’t you let sorrow into your cozy little life – go out there – get things done – take risks and have fun and while you’re at it look around – ‘cause I will see you out there too.
