Phedippidations: Episodes

You and I are out on a run together.  As we’re getting our miles in we start to talk to each other to pass the time. This is where we get to know each other, where we start to open up a little and reveal ourselves as the persons we really are. 
 
You and I are different, with different ...

Celebrities are people too.  They wake up in the morning, just as we do, they brush their teeth, they log onto their computers, they lace their own shoes, and they have to put in the same amount of effort as the rest of us in training for their marathons.
 
You could outrun Will Ferrell, Kim ...

As a runner, you have to discover and understand your own running Terroir.  You need to know how your environment, personality, geography and local climate influences your ability to perform.  In this sport, we are taught to listen to our bodies and the symptoms of over-use injuries: but before ...
I’m starting off the new year right by answering all of my email (or at least trying to).  In this episode of a goofy little podcast I respond to some of the messages I was unable to get to last year with hopes that I’ll be able to answer ALL of my email in the year of our Lord 2011.
 
Also, ...
This is our time.
 
With the changing of the calendar year it’s common for us to take the time to look back on the previous solar orbit, or look forward to our future.  This is a great exercise, to look forward without dwelling on the past: as we make our way through this adventure called ...
Today I’m going to read for you the final chapter of Dr. George Sheehans book “Running and Being – The Total Experience”.  I’m doing this in hopes that you might buy and read his book, and as a way of presenting you with an alternate special holiday episode of Phedippidations…a ...
The friends who I ran the Mojo Loco with are listening to this right now, Chris and Chris, Eddie, Nik, Dan, Mat, Susan, Steve, Samantha, Norm, Adam  and Maddy. 
 
They’re wondering to themselves: “How is Steve going to tell this story? How will be express the narrative? What ...
The history of wine is the history of civilization.  It’s a story that dates back to the earliest days of agriculture and encompasses the life and times of our ancestors who consumed wine for both pleasure and ceremony.  When we raise a glass today, we are tasting more than just a fermented ...

Today’s episode, being my first Running Blogcast features the writing of Neil Bearse, a fellow runner I’ve never had the honor of meeting in person: but I feel like we’re old friends.  Neil is the one who first introduced me to my all time favorite musical band: Black Lab…as ...
You have the same ability to produce content in an artful way that will, no doubt, convince someone you care about to join us on the road as runners…and, if in the course of those public new media conversations, you convince one or two others to rise up of THE COUCH OF DOOM, then all the better!

The American statesman Ben Franklin once wrote “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.  There may be something to that with respect to our running performance. We sleep, on average a full one third of our lives.  So, as a middle aged, middle of the pack, ...
 
Today I will tell you about an amazing person who lived his life to the top.  It’s an interesting life with high and low points, with obstacles which were overcome leading towards an eventual spiral into disaster…but in the end, redemption and glory.
Abebe Bikila was the first ...
How many of us have trained over many months for a race only to perform terribly in the event itself, or how many of us have crossed that finish line in say, oh…I don’t know…a minute and 31 seconds slower than we had hoped.
