Millinocket Crankle 2K

Millinocket Crankle 2K

 

Millinocket Marathon

It’s a Boston qualifier

Millinocket Half-Marathon

It’s only half as long!

But at 5 degrees

that won’t really matter

Your frozen tears 

will just drop and shatter

Then you’ll realize

the best race was the race the night before!

 

Millinocket Crankle 2K

Millinocket Crankle 2K

 

Get out your hand warmers

Get out your wooly hat

Get out your leg warmers

Get out your ankle warmers 

Get out your long johns

Get out your flannel shirt

Get out your running mittens

Get out your wrist warmers

Get out your finger warmers

Get out your windbreaker

Get out your other hat

Get some more socks

But just one thing; In case its 60 degrees

Be ready to take all that off!

Bryan and Peter welcome the triumphant return of Father Dan Horan, O.F.M. (the running friar) for an extra-special, extra-long episode to get everyone through their Thanksgiving travels and runs. They talk about Dan's year of long-distance running, races that he'd like to do, running while traveling, fueling during a race, and the trade-offs between short- and long-distance running. Dan also addresses the challenges we face in today's trying cultural and political climate and the power of running (and certain running podcasts) to bring some much-needed joy. Then, a special listener question and a few verbals and pre-verbals. Peter and Bryan wrap it up with some updates, including the Run 4 All Women film screening, Millinocket royalty, their training runs, and Bryan's next Half Marathon.

Bryan picks up the speed to tackle some hills, while Peter goes into beast mode to help his mom prepare for the winter. Then they are joined in the studio by runner and hardest-working-man-in-social-media Jonathan Levitt to talk about InsideTracker, a company that provides athletes with personalized nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to improve performance. Jonathan also shares how he got started as a marathoner, the cool events and races that he has traveled to for his work, and where he'd love to live as an athlete. Plus, the guys revisit the painful and humbling 2017 Boston Marathon and explore why people keep putting themselves through the torture of endurance sports.

Peter catches Bryan up on the Cambridge Costume 5K, then consults with him about a change in his Millinocket training plan. Bryan confessed to a secret new plan. Then we travel to Heartbreak Hill Running Company for a little Heaven & Hell—treadmill and yoga...or is it yoga and treadmill—with Coach Dan Fitzgerald, Yogi Rebecca Pacheco, and some special HWYRT guests. Afterwards, Bryan and Peter sit down with Rebecca to talk about her yoga training, yoga for runners, and the surprising connection between boxing and yoga. Rebecca also shares some advice for first-timers ready to give yoga a try, and takes us on a trip down memory lane to when she and Dan first introduced us to their amazing daughter Edie on Boston Marathon weekend.

HWYRT goes on the road to Brooklyn, NY, to meet artist, writer, and runner Lori Richmond. Lori explains about how she went from being an art kid in remedial gym to having her art featured in Runner's World for her #viewfrommyrun project on Instagram. She also talks about her love of running in New York, her lack of joy of cooking, the benefits of creative personal projects, and the parallels between art and running. Peter, Bryan, and Lori also have the spark of a fantastic new idea that may take the art/writing/running/cooking/retail world by storm. Plus, questions for Lori from fantastic human (and former HWYRT guest) Emily Saul.

Check out all of Lori’s great work! http://www.loridraws.com/

Bryan has a not-entirely-surprising Millinocket Marathon reveal and Peter feels the sting of listener feedback. Plus, the “mad pooper” in the news reminds Bryan of a recent strange experience. Then the guys head to the Boston Public Library for an in-depth chat with adventurer, runner, and filmmaker Jonathan Ronzio. They discuss his very early entrepreneurial beginnings, what it took to make his first film Between the Peaks, where the best trails are for mountain running, and what a life full of exercise, adventure, and art looks like. Keep your eyes on the “chicken bus” and don’t stop until you reach Denali!

Plus, a dive into Bryan’s and Jillian’s surprise shared history.

Bryan and Peter will be back next week with the start of the all-new Season Two of HWYRT! This week, they wrap up the Summer Rewind series with their incredible interview with the one and only Kelly Roberts! Stay tuned to the end for a new update from Kelly and be here next week for the start of Season Two!

Bryan survives his 18-miler and Peter is on the verge of being on the road again. Then, a fantastic conversation with Kelly Roberts of Run Selfie Repeat. Kelly talks about how she began taking the running and social media worlds by storm, and about the importance of learning to love yourself for what your body can do rather than how well it meets some unrealistic standard. She also gives HWYRT a look into her special brand of craziness that led her to run multiple marathons in one month. Plus, the dangers of mini trampolines!

Yes, we’re still on summer break.

Chris brings the guys up to speed on the Westin’s run concierge program, tells the story of the most amazing birthday run ever, and offers up some unexpected running advice to help Bryan prepare for his big race in Millinocket, Maine.

They talk about her (and her relay team’s) historic 240-mile run from New York City to Washington D.C. that raised over $100K for Planned Parenthood, as well as how Alison became a runner and an activist and how she hopes to continue the work that her Run 4 All Women movement began.

Bryan's physical therapy is working wonders but his defeatist self-talk is laying traps for his recovery. And Peter's ultra training may be off course despite beautiful summer weather (or because of it). Then, a trip to Feedback Corner where Peter's stray thought unintentionally weaves a web of running voodoo that ensnares Fast/Funny Ellen London.
