Bryan and Peter are back in their podcasting second home at the Boston Public Library! First, Bryan gives an update on his training for the Boston Marathon, where he will be guiding friend-of-the-show Tim Sullivan to support Team With A Vision. He also shares some workout advice he got from Coach Paul Davies, and talks about how he's facing the immense changes in weather. Plus, Peter shares how he's training his diet (also a marathon, not a sprint!) while continuing PT for his foot injury. Then, they are joined by special guests Kiah Quarles and Imani Graham, both first-time marathoners who are running for the brand new Boston Public Library charity team. Kiah and Imani describe the excitement of hitting big mile markers as they build up their distance, how they've been managing their training and fundraising, and, of course, how they strap on the feedbag. They also talk about their athletic pasts and Imani shares the story of how a traumatic injury changed her life and eventually brought her to distance running. 

Don't forget to sign up for the LOVE FEST happening next Thursday, February 14th, at the Heartbreak Hill Running Company! Come hang out with fellow runners, shop, or take a class. There will be LIVE PODCASTING and a raffle. At least one lucky Boston Marathon charity runner will walk away with a prize to support their fundraising goal.

New year, new episode! Peter and Bryan welcome 2019 with a special visit from Peter's long-time friend and new runner, David Macklem, on his stateside holiday trip from Japan. First, they try to figure out if Dave actually met Bryan back in their Syracuse University days. Then, stories of Dave and Peter strapping on the feedbag in their youth lead to revelations about when they each hit their low points and turned their health around. For Dave, that included a certain inspirational running podcast and finding experienced runners to coach him. The guys also talk about the challenge of returning to running after injury, Dave's amazing unsupported personal marathon in beautiful Okayama, and the supportive HWYRT community on Strava.

There's a new crew at the WGBH Studio in the Boston Public Library-the Unnamed Run Crew (UNMD). Peter and Bryan are joined by UNMD's founder Leandrew Belnavis, co-leader Elizabeth Rock, and crew member Alex Caballero to talk about their diverse and inclusive running crew that leaves no runner behind. Leandrew describes how what started as a birthday run with a group of friends turned into a weekly, music-filled run with a crew of up to 50 or more runners. They also talk about some of the challenges people can face in Boston, particularly those who are new to it, and how Liz and Alex found their way to UNMD. Plus, Peter accepts a challenge from Leandrew, and everyone reveals the super power they wish they had. Plus, Bryan has big plans to reveal! www.HWYRT.com

It's our 3rd Anniversary Special!! Peter and Bryan chat about working through injury and the negative self-talk that creeps in when you're not running, and then Bryan confesses (of course) to how he got injured this time...

Amelia is brand new to running and her excitement is contagious. We talk about how she got started running, her impressive 30-minute running rule (and if she'll ever break it), and all of the important running topics: running while traveling, treadmills, setting goals, strapping on the feedbag, STRAVA, and much, MUCH more. Plus, updates on the 3rd Annual Crankle 2K!
