Peter and Bryan welcome a soothing presence into their Zoom quarantine universe --their good friend Emily Saul, founder of E. Saul Movement sports psychology and co-leader of the November Project Boston. Emily talks about how we are all adjusting to the newness of self-isolation, how she's handling being away from her NP tribe, and how we can dig into what we find valuable and meaningful in our running to help reset our routines. She shares how she uses practices of mindfulness to accept the challenges and how to find the creative opportunities that give her purpose. Plus, recommendations for how everyone—experienced runners, new runners, and non-runners alike—can experience the benefit of movement. Plus, finger dancing and advice on cleaning out the literal and proverbial closets in life.

Peter and Bryan go on a guided running tour of Boston with City Running Tours and learn a whole lot they didn't know about their hometown. Then they chat with Dr. Ithamar Jotkowitz of Outback Physical Therapy about the Australian approach to PT and learn more about the science of Resting Metabolic Rate and VO2 Max testing. They discuss what Bryan has adjusted in his training since his VO2 Max testing a year ago, and Dr. Jotkowitz shares the non-so-secret science of better running (hint: go slow and eat more!). Plus, the eternal question: Can a doctor follow his own advice when training for a marathon?

Note: This episode mentions several charity events shared by HWYRTians who are raising money for the Boston Marathon. These events will likely be canceled by the time of this podcast airing. Please consider supporting the charities anyway if you can!

Peter and Bryan welcome ultrarunner and ultrawinner Lori Michener to the WGBH Studio at the Boston Public Library. Lori talks about running her first 100-mile race (the Florida Keys 100), how she ended up running THREE 100-mile races last year, and what she's doing to train for her next challenge—the Badwater 135. She also describes how she managed to impress her 16-year-old son, the charity she has supported for (about to be) 10 Boston Marathons, and what it takes to do so much training while also working as a college professor and parenting. (Hint: It involves a Paul.) Then, it's time for questions from the live audience about everything from running rituals and superstitions to how to properly fold socks. #MarieKondoisright

Bryan and Peter try to stay inspired as they stare into the abyss of the hardest months of winter. First, they replay the time that they interviewed Jared Ward, recently named #1 in U.S. Men's Marathon for 2019, and gave him advice before his first Boston Marathon. (He came in 10th, so it must have helped!) Then, it's time to strap on the feedback as they discuss Peter's progress on a mostly plant-based diet and the importance of continuing to learn about how to fuel our bodies for running. Next, Peter and Bryan go to the movies! They share their thoughts on the indie film Brittany Runs a Marathon and the documentary Desert Runners. (Beware: Mild spoilers.) It brings them to think about what drives each them as runners, from the accomplishment of the training cycle to always doing something new. Finally, a check-in on their upcoming races.
