Microsoft Intro cooked up by Steve Platt

Lots of Halloween type sounds.


Hello and welcome to episode 92 of the RunRunLive Podcast – this is Mad Dog your host.  Hope everyone is doing fantastic.  I’m coming out the back side of some furious travel and work.  I’m feeling like I need a vacation.  How about you?  Don’t you just feel wrung out this time of year?

It would seem I have a marathon to race in two days.  I have to admit I’m stressing a little over it.  I think this is my 26th or 27th marathon and I’m already qualified for Boston – so it doesn’t count, but they all count! My screwy running disease makes me somehow come to the conclusion that I need to step up and give my all and break myself on the course.

So the game is on! As a result I’ve been sleeping crappy all week and I’ve been grumpy.  Why do I put pressure on myself?  I don’t know.  I guess it’s just my nature.

We’ve got an interesting show for you today with an interview of Epic Bill Bradley who has an interesting story.  He basically dropped out of the rat race and began running the ultra races instead.  It’s interesting to see how easy it is to just decide to do something else.

I’m also going to insert a story I wrote about people dying in races – I know it’s a little morbid, but it’s the cycle of life for us all and what better time than Halloween for that article?

I’m not going to chew up any more of the valuable airspace here – let’s get you out the door and on the road!

On with the show!


Bill Bradley


Quick tip: – talk about my Marine Corp prep.

Story about Death

Outro – That’s it folks you’ve soldiered through yet another episode of the RunRunLive podcast.  I’ve got another good interview next week – another long distance nutter named mark aka run Geordie run who is preparing to run across the USA for charity.  He’s already run across England.  I beginning to think you’ll need to get in line soon if you want to run across the states.  Sorry – you’ll need to take a ticket – you’re on the waiting list – come back next year – the transcontinental shuffle is booked up for this season.

So far it looks like everyone had nice weather for their fall marathons and I’m seeing a lot of Boston qualifiers and fast times coming over the wire from all my virtual friends.  Sign up early for Boston – I think it’s going to fill up quick this year.

Wish me luck at Marine Corp – should be fun.  That’s what I like about distance racing – you never know what’s going to happen.  Every time you toe the line it’s a new adventure and you get to write the script.

Feel free to follow me on twitter or facebook – I’m mildly entertaining when the mood strikes me and I love to meet new people.  Send me in some audio – record the intro to the show for me. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Had an interesting twitter conversation today.  Someone was asking about ‘the Secret’ or the “Attractor Factor” and I was trying to explain it to them.  Basically the theory is that you should just do what you love and give freely to others without expecting anything in return and you will be surprised and rewarded by love and wealth and karma flowing back in a volume greater than that which you sent out.

Stephen Covey – that crazy Mormon – puts it this way.  Treat your relationships like bank accounts.  You must keep making g deposits and build up a balance before you can ask for a withdrawal.

Good stuff.  Be well. Stay cool. Keep moving. Every day above ground is a good one. And yes, I will see you out there.
