To celebrate Run 4 All Women’s upcoming national events, this summer rewind features our interview with Run 4 All Women founder, Alison Desir. Be sure to check out a race event happening near you and support the movement by visiting https://www.run4allwomen.com.
After the update on this week’s Clyde Army Countdown, Bryan plays nutritionist to help further Peter’s marathon training. Then, they get past their technical difficulties and have an in-depth conversation with runner Alison Desir, creator of the free fitness group Harlem Run. 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 and Peter celebrate their 90th episode by going on vacation and leaving us with their amazing 40th episode. We travel back to August 2016 and go under Harvard stadium with November Project. Check out the crazy post-workout interviews with Caleb Daniloff, Emily Saul, Chris Capozzi, and November Project co-founders Brogan Graham and Bojan Mandaric. And stick around to the end of the show for updates from the NP “Giant Men” recorded this past week.
Bryan and Peter do the unthinkable and record the open to the show while driving. Peter reveals some news about his ultra race plans, while Bryan admits it’s hard to do the show while operating a moving vehicle. Then they arrive at Charles River Running in Norwood to interview store owner and runner Charlotte Walsh. Charlotte talks about her history as a runner, why she decided to open a running store, and what led to her becoming an ambassador for Run 4 All Women.

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.

It’s no secret that Bryan and Peter are both 46 years old. But, they do have secrets that they've been keeping from each other. In this episode, those secrets come to light. Also, Peter has begun training for his first ultra and is including a new morning ritual. And November Project holds their 5th Annual Summit in the Boston area. Plus, Bryan opens up Peter's eyes to ferret legging.
Writer (and veteran HWYRT guest) Caleb Daniloff joins Bryan and Peter to talk about his special report in Runner’s World on the science behind how exercise can help battle addiction.

And do Bryan and Peter see themselves making a similar change? Plus, the November Project Summit 5.0 comes to Boston.

Over the last 35 years, Wayne Levy has run more than 100,000 miles. What does he do when he’s not out running more than halfway to the Moon? He serves on the Boston Athletic Association Board of Governors and the Advisory Board for Back on My Feet Boston, and he manages RunBoston, a company that provides historical running tours in Boston. Bryan and Peter get Wayne to give them the lowdown on the benefits of running a “daily dime,” find out what happened the first time Wayne attempted to run the Boston Marathon, and go in-depth on ways to avoid injury. Plus, Peter provides an update on Week 4 of the Clyde Army Countdown.

Then they talk with two runners who will be running the Boston Marathon together: Tim Sullivan, a visually impaired runner (and proud member of the Clyde Army) and writer Mark Remy (dumbrunner.com and Runner’s World) who will be Tim’s guide. They talk about how Tim got into running, how Mark has settled into runner’s paradise (a.k.a. Portland, OR), and how they came to be running the marathon together.
