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.

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. Emily gives Peter advice on his push-up endeavor and talks about the dance between having strong discipline and strong self-compassion. 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).
