Apr 11, 2021

Bryan and Peter check in about their brief stints in the medical tent, and then it's time for the drama! Three-time Crankle 2K costume winner and runner Erin Keller joins to talk about her fundraiser "Acting like I can run for Hartford Stage," a 55-mile run along the Farmington River Trail (which goes from New Haven, Connecticut, to the Massachusetts border). Erin came up with the run to benefit Hartford Stage, where she had been employed as a prop master prior to the pandemic. Erin talks about the support planned along the route by her former coworkers, how she's fueling and training, and what it means to her to get back to a world with live theatre.

 

Erin’s fundraising page is Acting like I can run for Hartford Stage on Facebook.

Bryan and Peter step away from their computers and sit outside in the sunshine. They discuss Peter’s impending 50th birthday, and Bryan shares a special gift from composer Jeff Cronenberg. Then it's time to pick up the cones with a special guest—Peter's high school cross-country coach, Dominic Priolo. Dominic shares thoughts on all things running, including the dangers of running through the pain, what it's like to be a high school running coach, what it really means to have discipline, and the contemplative nature of running. Plus, people who need to run...and those who don't.

This week, Bryan returns to running with a bang—a snowy WOahMAN with his friend Joev Dubach—while Peter returns to walking with doctor approval. Then, Peter has a one-on-one session with push-up expert Emily Saul of the November Project.

She shares a new strategy she's trying for her 125 daily push-ups called EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute), explains how to standardize a push-up, and talks about how the practice that Peter is building with his push-up challenge will apply to other aspects of life. Plus, a new running app inspired by Bryan's Soul Searching Solstice Run (developed by HWYRTian Eric Nelson).

Bryan gives Peter the 411 on his upcoming Soul Searching Solstice Run. Is he ready to run for nine-plus hours? WHO KNOWS?! No matter what, he will be supported on the day by Emily Saul (of the November Project) and the incredible long distance running duo of Lori Michener and Paul Chekal. He will also be empowered by a new song from Jenn Schott to help him set the tone [maybe instead of "set the tone" make it "get in the zone"?]. Then, it’s time for a quick trip into the medical tent—always the right place to be just before a full day of running. This is the final show for the year, so we want to wish all HWYRTians far and wide a safe and happy holiday season and a better new year.
