Shout out to The SAA on Phedippidations Podcast

A couple of months ago I raved about The Age Grouper podcast and I remain a loyal listener and podcast junkie.

One of the latest additions to my iPod is Phedippidations. I learned about this podcast from listening to the 4FeetRunning podcast and the Runners Roundtable.
Steve Runner hosts Phedippidations and lives in Oxford, Mass. USA. The podcast is more professional than most since Steve has a background in radio and seems to really know technology.

A few weeks ago, via Twitter @steverunner, Steve asked for running club profiles so I sent him an e-mail highlighting The Steveston Athletic Association (SAA) that I belong to. I was overjoyed to receive a reply from Steve saying he would give the club a good mention in the next podcast.

Today I was excited to listen to episode #163 and hear not only The SAA mentioned but the E-Venti Marathon and my personal blog.

If you are interested in running and like to listen to your iPod while on your LONG runs, then try out a running podcast. There are a lot of great podcasts out there. Click here for a great list of running companions.

Happy Running!

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…


In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
