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!

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
