Bryan's back from river rafting in Utah and singing the praises of taking breaks from running. Peter is holding steady on his training. Plus, HWYRT "goes to the phones" in a brand new segment. They take a call from listener Jeannette who is asking her fellow HWYRTians to help her soar past the $500 fundraising goal for the 20th Annual Flutie 5K next week! She is running on behalf of her son, Robbie. Please visit her page here: https://www.classy.org/team/237285

In this episode we get an update on Peter's successful return to running in the month of August. Then Peter tries to pull Bryan out of the deep doldrums, but faces resistance. Silliness ensues with an “unknown guest” and remembering the time they moved a free treadmill for the Social Media Guru.

We’re back to one show per week. Well, at least for this week. Peter dodges construction as he plods through a humid run, while Bryan joins a friend in an intense stadium challenge. They share an announcement about the fourth running of the Crankle 2K! in Millinocket, Maine, and offer kudos to friends of the show on some MAJOR mileage races.  Plus, Bryan asks for advice!

In the afterglow of their Boston/New England Emmy win, Bryan and Peter revisit the events of the big day. First, Peter talks about his recovery from knee surgery (just the day before the Emmys!) Then, we travel to the Boston Public Library where the HWYRT team screened “Run Millinocket” with a few of their biggest fans. Peter and Bryan also chat with Coach Paul Davies about his recovery from an injury (that was much worse than he thought...) Then, Riley Gage and Dan Adamietz revisit their ultra experience at the Pineland Farms Trail Challenge. The episode wraps up with some sincere Thank Yous to the many people in the HWYRT family and community that make “this little hear show” possible.

We welcome legendary race director Dave McGillivray, who tells us all about how he "conducts" the Boston Marathon. Dave also takes us back in time to describe about how the Boston Marathon has changed over the years, how he organized a marathon at Fenway Park, what inspired him to run across the country as a young man, and how he helped to pioneer the concept of running to fundraise for a cause. Dave also shares how a recent health scare made him rethink certain lifestyle habits and what led him to have serious surgery. He also shares his wisdom on tackling injuries and looking for their underlying cause. Plus, his strong 'stache game!

Peter is on the road to wellness, and he has a crazy new idea to share (of course). Then, we welcome longtime friend-of-the-show and visually impaired runner, Tim Sullivan, who will be running the Boston Marathon with Bryan as his guide! Tim talks about his experience running last year's very cold and wet marathon, and the support that he and other runners get from MABVI (Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired) that allows them to have such a rich marathon experience. We then dig into Bryan's concerns as a first-time guide. Finally, Tim talks about his (controversial?) favorite part of the Boston Marathon course and what it's like to be guided by a faster runner. Plus, Tim finally gets the question he's been longing to hear, followed by a new HWYRT musical masterpiece!

Love is in the air for HWYRT! This week, Bryan and Peter join Coach Dan, Justin, and Gorilla Bill for the annual LoveFest at the Heartbreak Hill Running Company. While runners mingle, shop, and try the treadmills, Peter and Bryan chat with the enthusiastic crowd. They connect with runners of all kinds - experienced marathoners, first-time marathoners, and first-time runners period! - who are raising funds or supporting other charity runners for the Boston Marathon. Of course Peter and Bryan get to chat with the lucky raffle winners (listen in to see who gets the big prize and Gorilla Bill’s banana tips!), and then they are joined by Adrianne Haslet to talk about the strides she's making in her recovery from a terrible accident.

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.
