  • Episode 4-468 – Thomas and the Emerging Athlete
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-468 – Thomas and the Emerging Athlete  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4468.mp3] Link   Zero Prostate Cancer 2021 Boston - MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-468 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Today we’re going to talk to my friend Thomas who is a college cross country runner. If I could name only one benefit from having put out this podcast for the past dozen years it would be, head and shoulders above anything else, the people I meet, and the podcast gives me an excuse to learn about them.  I didn’t meet Thomas through the podcast, but the podcast gives me an opportunity to talk to him.  It’s interesting and enlightening.  I think there’s something to learn here for everyone.  it tells us older athletes that just by showing up we may make an impact on someone. It has some lessons learned for runners just starting out around what the journey could be. It has some things for parents to think about. … In section one I’m going to talk about the magical sport of cross-country.  In section two I’m going to talk about the elliptical – that ungainly piece of equipment in the corner of your gym. As for me, I had a bit of a setback in my return to running.  When I glibly tossed in that trail 5-miler a few weeks back I did something to my knee.  I don’t know if that something was the same something I’ve been recovering from for the last year or a new something – but it was noticeably sore.  So – I am not running.  Instead I’m working with Gina and focusing on some basic core, PT, flexibility and balance.  I, purely on a whim, jumped on the elliptical at the gym for my warm up this week and discovered that this may be a piece of equipment I can use to gain fitness while I’m waiting for the knee to sort itself out.  I haven’t put my bike on the trainer yet.  When I say ‘trainer’ I mean this contraption that is basically some rollers that you can mount your bike on and ride in place.  It is in the top 3 of the ‘endurance training Hall of Pain’ workouts.  It is mind numbingly awful.  But you can watch TV.  I did go out and squeeze a bike ride in last weekend with my buddies.  When I left my house for the ride Saturday morning there was ice in the back of my truck.   It was a bit brisk out on the bike trail, but we stopped for coffee to warm up at the halfway point. I am starting to put on a little weight.  But it is what it is.  My daily workout is a combination of foam rolling, stretching and some core or strength.  None of which is super-challenging.  The only challenging part is convincing myself to do it and then not trying to rush through it! I did buy a set of latex bands from Amazon that I use to add resistance to some of the PT exercises, like clamshells.  They are pretty good.  If you want the link, ask me and I can send it.  They are in a little pouch that you can throw into your gym bag and there are 10 different tensions.  I think it was 12 bucks.  My knee is still pretty achy and I’m losing my patience and getting frustrated with it.  I just have to keep reminding myself to take the long view.  Keep showing up!  Good things will happen if you are consistent. Since you all know by now that I am running a fitness project at work, which basically means I’m being an ad hoc fitness coach for all the people in my group.  I have one friend who’s in his mid-40’ who has gotten the Peleton treadmill and has been on it every day for almost a month now.  He’s really inspired.  He’s gone from zero to every day.  When I look at what he’s doing, he can’t even run a mile without walking, but it is transformational for him.  So I’m not going to complain about not being able to do intervals, hill repeats and 50k’s!  I’m going to do my PT and take what the knee gives me.  That’s not about injury or fitness.  That’s about mindset.  Some people look at the sky and see the clouds.  You look at the sky, make note of the clouds and see the blue sky.  It’s the same with thoughts.  The blue sky is your gratitude and peace.  The clouds are the crazy thoughts your brain sends scampering around like demented weasels. Don’t focus on the clouds.  Focus on the blue sky and your days will be sunnier.  You may even manifest some more blue in your skies. On with the show.

Now a Sophomore at Merrimack College running cross country and track I’m looking for an outside shot to qualify for the NCAA championships in the spring season in the 5k. 1 Mile 4:13 3000m 8:12 5000m 14:30 8k 23:48 10k 30:08   Instagram @torcutt25 https://www.strava.com/athletes/torcutt25 Section Two – Elliptical - Outro Ok my friends we have run over hill and dale through the end of episode 4-468 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Knock the mud off your cleats before you come back in the house, please.   Even though I have not run at all for a couple weeks I’m running the Ayer Fire Dept 5K next week for my turkey trot.  I should be fine.  I’ll just jog it.  It will be good to get out.  Then the week after is the Mill Cities Relay.  I’ve got a good 50+ team of my three old running buddies plus Just Plain Dave who’s driving up for southern Mass.   There’s one short 2.5 mile leg – I’ll take that one and see if I can race a little bit.  I’m really looking forward to it.  It should be a blast. I’m getting to the point where I just want to start running again.  Whatever was / is messed up in my knee should have healed by now and I’m a big believer in active recovery.  I’m going to need some coaching to make sure I ease into it. I’m sure everyone saw that they accepted everyone who qualified for the 2022 Boston Marathon in the spring.  Meaning, you didn’t need to beat your qualifying time to get in.  I’m out of qualification.  I’d need a 3:35 still to get in.  I think I get another 15 minutes in 2023.  Which is a lot.   I might consider getting a charity bib for 2022, just to keep my streak alive.  I ended up raising over $1,500 for my virtual this year.  And they finally sent me the finisher’s box.  I got the official race long sleeve tech shirt, finisher’s guide – which is a magazine type thing, I got the Sam Adams bottle opener, the unicorn sticker and a medal.  I checked on the medal and, yes, it is a different medal than the one the people who ran the physical race got.  The virtual medal is silver, and the ribbon says virtual.  The in-person medal is gold.    So depending on how you look at it I’ve got 21 Boston marathons under my belt now.  And that would be my 18th in a row.  Tough habit to break. … Ollie the collie is back in training.  We’re doing the “Good Citizen’s” course.  This includes everything we’ve learned so far plus greeting people and other dogs.  I’ve been trying to get out for a walk with him every day on the leash.  He’s still a struggle but he’s getting nicer bit by bit.  He’s such a smart, lovable dog.  Really handsome.  But crazy as a barrel full of monkeys.  Guess what? I booked some business travel this week.  I’m heading to Dallas. I may have two trips to Dallas this month.  How about that?  It’s been almost 2 years.  Crazy.  I’m going have to learn how to travel all over again.  When I walk Ollie out in the woods I find trash.  I find face masks, which are the new cigarette butt.  I find tissues, which I’m not picking up.  I draw the line at used tissues.  But the other two things I find are grocery receipts and candy wrappers.  I get the grocery receipts.  They hand those to you at check out when your hands are full so you stuff them in an available pocket from which they jump when you go for your walk.  I don’t get the candy wrappers.  I’m not talking chocolate bars.  I’m talking about hard candy and Lindt Truffles.  Those little, dense, evil balls of calories.  How does that happen? What’s the scenario where you say, “Hey let’s go for a hike! Hold on I’ll get a pocket full of truffles!” I think it’s people who are watching their step counter and when it hit 10,000 they scarf down a couple truffles as a reward.  It’s ok.  I’ve got your back.  When sugar coma induced weakness hits and you drop those truffle wrappers I’ll be there to pick them up for you.  Because I’m helpful like that. And as you are clutching your next handful of sinful chocolate balls, I’ll see you out there.

  • Episode 4-467 – Holistic Health with Gina
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-467 – Holistic Health with Gina  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4467.mp3] Link   Zero Prostate Cancer 2021 Boston - MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-467 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  How are we doing?  In today’s show we are going to talk with a friend of mine Gina who has recently moved from her 9-5 job to being a holistic coach.  She’s working with me as I try to build myself back into this new season of running.  Oh yeah, before I forget, it’s my birthday.  And the supply chain must be really bad because I didn’t’ receive any gifts from you thousands of loyal friends out there… All those expensive gifts must be sitting in a container ship off Long Beach.  Hey, I know exactly where that is.  I’ve run by the Queen Mary a dozen times in the morning and out into that little marina with the break water there.  Nice weather there.  Too much cement and not enough trees for my liking though.  I bought myself a new Kindle Paperwhite.  I had one of the original Kindles and I really liked the form factor.  But it eventually went end of life and those evil bastards at Amazon sent over a software update that killed it.  That was a couple years ago.  It took me this long to recover from my pique.  I got a couple runs in this week. I went for a nice long 5+ miler with Ollie in the trails on Tuesday.  As much as I enjoyed it, I also made my knee mad and it’s been achy since.  I’m running with Ollie in the fully leashed mode now.  I have him on the 6-foot leash and I try to make him run in a heel position beside me. It’s a work in progress. He doesn’t get why I wouldn’t want to just run as fast as I can.  I spend most of the time correcting him.  He doesn’t work with me and it throws me off balance.  Ollie would make a terrible guide dog.  All you’d see would be Ollie sprinting down the road with the severed arm of the Achilles athlete dragging behind him.  So – I’m a work in progress and Ollie is a work in progress and, let’s face it, that’s life, right?  Anyhow Gina has me doing a routine of foam rolling, stretching and core.  I’ve done this routine for the last coupe weeks.  And I do feel a bit of benefit in terms of my form and balance.  Now I’ll try to load in some strengthening as well.  Start slow.  Build a good foundation.  In section one I’ll share another presentation I did to my group about what we learned from experimenting with morning routines.  Apologies for the audio.  In section two I’m going to talk a little about apps.  … I’m not going to bore you with my whining about not being able to run.  Not being able to run bothers me.  It really does.  It feels like a loss.  Why?  Because running is more than running for us.  Running is art.  Running is a creative, spiritual act.  Running is prayer for us.  And when you lose your running you lose your prayer – and that’s the loss.  And you can lose it not just by being physically injured.  You can still be capable of physically running and lose the prayer.  Lose the art.  You can lose that art by trying to do to much.  By turning that prayer into an industrial act. And I’m going to give you a gift.  I’m going to stick a short piece written and read by on a podcast that I listen to sometimes, called that has some deep and meaningful conversations.  For your long runs it will give you something to think about and I was stunned by this beautiful piece of writing today.  I don’t own any of this and the links are in the show notes.  It’s from an essay called “Oremus,” meaning, in Latin, “Let us pray.” “Prayer, like poetry, like breath, like our own names, has a fundamental rhythm in our bodies. It changes, it adapts, it varies from the canon. It sings, it swears, it is syncopated by the rhythm underneath the rhythm, the love underneath the love, the rhyme underneath the rhyme, the name underneath the name, the welcome underneath the welcome, the prayer beneath the prayer. So let us pick up the stones over which we stumble, friends, and build altars. Let us listen to the sound of breath in our bodies. Let us listen to the sounds of our own voices, of our own names, of our own fears. Let us name the harsh light and soft darkness that surround us. Let’s claw ourselves out from the graves we’ve dug. Let’s lick the earth from our fingers. Let us look up and out and around. The world is big and wide and wild and wonderful and wicked, and our lives are murky, magnificent, malleable, and full of meaning. Oremus. Let us pray.”   On with the show.

Coming up for me is the Ayer Thanksgiving 5K.  Should be fun.  I know I can run 5K – so that won’t be a problem.  The challenge will be to not get swept away in the race vibes and make promises my body can’t deliver on!   Then on December 5th I have put a team in for the Mill Cities Relay.  It will be a hoot.  I’ll take the broken-old-guy short leg and my old running buddies can divvy up the actual racing.  We are in the midst of kickstarting the old Groton Road Race after a 2-year hiatus.  Stay tuned for more on that but it will be in the spring. Speaking of the spring, they have opened early registration for the 2022 Boston Marathon at it’s usual time and place on Patriots Day.  I could register if I was qualified.  But, I’m not. It makes me wonder whether I should keep pushing out this podcast if I’m not really competing anymore.  What’s the benefit to you?  But for now I’ll keep doing it.  Because I know that it helps someone.  It shows up at the right time and says the right thing for someone and that’s my little rock creating ripples in the pond. I will tell you a story.  This week during my Fitness Project office hours I had a bunch of people show up and we talked about what we learned from the morning routines.     I have to tell you I was a little wary of putting myself out there in a work setting.  I set up this challenge for everyone in my group to get up at a fixed time for a week and do something.  I called it 5 at 5 or 5 at 6 or whatever you wanted to do.  Just get up, and do something you hadn’t done before and report back to the team as you are doing it. Everyone listened politely. Some asked clarifying questions. Then Monday Morning came around and I committed to list 5 things I was grateful for each day in the morning for a week. That was my commitment.  I published it out to the team chat.  This was another scary moment.  But, I figured, what’s the worse that can happen?  I’m ready to retire anyhow. Then, an amazing thing started to happen.  One by one people started chiming in with their morning projects.  And we got through the week with a heightened sense of comradery. Mission accomplished I thought.  Then I held my office hours and all these people showed up.  They told me how my project had kick started them into a fitness routine.  They told me what they had learned.  How they had tried to get up earlier and failed but then learned to simplify and take what they could get. They told me about how their new meditation practices had allowed them to carry that calm leadership into their days.  They told me how these projects had opened windows of connectivity to their spouses and children.  I was shocked and humbled.  Before we had this fitness call I was leading another call, earlier in the week.  And it wasn’t going great.  I was getting anxious, and I know that you can’t be anxious in these types of calls because it shows and it bleeds into the environment and poisons the room. And I thought to myself, “Wait.  Take a breath.  You are giving them a gift.  You are the gift.  Your knowledge, your leadership, your ownership is a gift.  You have no control over how they receive the gift.  If they choose not to take the gift, or not to appreciate the gift, that’s on them.” And I relaxed.  And, right then and there, in the middle of this call, I reached for a yellow sticky and wrote “I give you my gift” on it to remind me.  This is my message to you.  You are only responsible for the gift.  Whether it is a podcast or a morning routine, you give the gift that you have, without fear.  You give your gift and let others take it.  Watch what happens.  Give a gift of a sincere thank you in every interaction you have today.  Give a gift of sincere praise in every interaction you have today. Those gifts will come back to you thousandfold. And I’ll see you out there. My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

  • Episode 4-466 – John from Sqoosh
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-466 – John from Sqoosh  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4466.mp3] Link   Zero Prostate Cancer 2021 Boston - MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-466 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  It finally turned to the nice cool fall weather this week.  The leaves are falling.  I’ve done a couple of easy runs out on the trails this week with Ollie.  The knee is ok, but I’m in such poor shape that it’s hard to tell.  Everything hurts so a little extra pain doesn’t really stand out. But I have a plan. Of course I have a plan.  I’m consulting with a friend of mine to start building abase of core strength and balance that I can leverage to come back healthy.  I’ll talk a little bit today about how to treat these seasonal transitions where your body is talking to you.  It’s marathon season.  I watched all the folks running the big events like Boston and Chicago and London. Great job everyone.   People were really emotional at these races after waiting so long to run in person.  I forget how important and impactful getting to Boston can be for people.  People ask me if I ran.  I don’t know how to answer.  I completed the distance.  I did not run the course on the day.  I  ran loops over in my home town of Groton on Sunday morning.  I ran a 30 second run, 30 second walk cadence and ended up with a time of 5:05ish.  So I guess, technically I ran.  My friends came out and joined me for the first lap.  Tim hung in for the second lap.  I did 5 laps of different lengths and sizes.  I’m not a very prescriptive person.  I just show up and run.  I know roughly what distance the loops are from the town hall in Groton.  I was aiming for 5 plus miles each.  That seemed like a good distance at that pace so I could have a refuel every 80-90 minutes.  The weather was cool, but oddly humid.  I carried one of the soft bottles in my vest.  I did not take Ollie.  I ended up coming back from the 4th loop at 23 miles and change, so to keep it simple I just did that last 3 miles as an out and back on the rail trail.  I won’t lie, my legs were not happy with me for the last 10 miles.  That 4th loop ended up being 6ish miles and ran out of water.  But, with the 30-30 cadence I was able to pick up my feet and move each time and did not suffer unduly.  I wasn’t’ really sore the next days either.  I did see others out on the rail trail who were obviously running their own virtual races.  I listened through some podcasts and had a nice long thoughtful outing.  For nutrition I had a handful of dates.  I had water and a change of shirts and hat at my truck.  It worked out without much fuss.  I was pretty beat up at the end. Felt like I had run a marathon.  So – there ya go – for the veteran runner – you can complete a marathon on zero training using a 30-30 run-walk.  Today we talk to John from Squoosh bands.  It’s an interesting interview.  John is really tied in with my friend Kevin over at the Extra Mile Podcast.  In section one we’ll talk about the mindful crux of determining what to do in the later seasons of your running life.  In section two I’m going to do an old-man rant on hustle culture.  I love this fall weather, don’t you?  Of course it’s only fall weather in this hemisphere. We are moving into a stressful period of our lives. These few weeks before the holidays tend to be very busy and can be overwhelming. Remember to be mindful.  Straighten up.  Relax your shoulders and jaw.  Bring your head high like the top of your head is being pulled up into the sky. Take a deep breath.  Fill your whole abdomen, all the way down to your belly.  Hold it for a count of two and feel the peace and energy in your body. Let it out slowly. Feel gratitude for that simple act. On with the show. About Zero ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer.

Squoosh.    So – what’s the future hold?  Well, Here’s my current plan.  I’ve signed up for the Thanksgiving 5k.  I’m also outing team in for the Mill cities relay.  I need a couple over 50 men for that team if any of you locals are interested, it’s the first week of December. I’m running, not walk-running, running 2-3 times a week now.  Just easy.  I’m going to go back to the heart chest strap to get a better handle on my HR so I can stay in zone 2 for all this preliminary work.  I’m working with a friend of mine, Gina, on rebuilding my core strength and balance.  I may drop my gym membership, because this is all going to be body-weight and yoga.  The gym served its purpose this summer.  Letting me feel my oats. Get some muscle bulk and testosterone.  By the way ‘feel your oats’ is an American saying.  It refers to how frisky horses get after you feed them.  I am grateful for that interlude.  Now it’s time to transition to something else.  It’s also getting past bike weather up here.  We’ll still keep riding.  We go out until the snow and ice stops us.  I don’t want to put boundaries on what I can do, or still do.  I think your body is strong and amazing and will do far more than you think.  At the same time I want to be smart and not abusive in this new season.  Ollie is doing fine.  I took him to the vet this week for his checkup and shots.  He got a clean bill of health.  I’m practicing running on leash with him.  It’s a struggle some times but I think eventually we’ll come to some sort of agreement, he and I.  I signed him up for the second course of dog-stuff training.  Frankly I think it’s worth it just to get him out of the house.  … As we head into this stressful time of year remember to stay centered.  Remember to be in the now.  Let’s practice, shall we.  Straighten up again.  Smile.  Take in that deep breath, hold it for a second and let it out slowly. You can do anything, You can be anything, You have the power.  You are a good person, You add value to this world, You are loved. You do what is right for you, your family, and your friends with no regrets. … Your life is magical, You are unimaginably powerful Your life is beautiful, fair, rich, abundant, and filled with meaning … Your body is strong.  You have all the strength You need to do the things that You want to do. You are worthy. You are unique. You are loved. And I’ll see you out there. My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

  • Episode 4-465 – Murray – Modern Meditation
    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-465 – Murray – Modern Meditation  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4465.mp3] Link   Zero Prostate Cancer 2021 Boston - MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-465 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Today we talk with Murray about a bunch of stuff.  He’s written a new book on modern meditations, which impresses me as one of those great books to help you with your morning practices.  This weekend is the Chicago Marathon and Monday is the Boston Marathon.   There are a bunch of people who are running both.  Which is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity.  This being the big collection of races that were postponed from the spring into the fall by Covid. It looks like Chicago is going to be a little warm.  Remember the old rule of thumb says you should run 5 seconds per mile slower for every five degrees over 70.  Like most old rules of thumb this probably more anecdotal than scientific advice. I will be running, well kinda running, my Boston virtual Sunday.  I’m going to Run-walk it using the Galloway method and an 30-30 cadence.  Meaning 30 seconds of running, and 30 seconds of walking.  The knee seems to be responding well.  Hopefully I don’t hurt it with this escapade. If it still feels good I can start ramping my training back up, but one thing at a time. In section one I’ll share what I’ve learned using run-walk to work through my injured knee.  In section two I’m going to dust off an old piece about how to successfully implement change in your life. … It’s still pretty warm up here in New England.   The temps are only going down into the 50’s at night and it’s still raining a lot.  Which means My garden is still kicking along with some odds and ends.  I’ve got one last Swiss Chard that is providing some salad.  Some robust Parsley as well.  A couple green tomatoes – we’ll see if they ripen up before the frost.   I’ve got lots of mint and I’ve been thinking about drying it out for winter use.  I’ve got some Brussel sprouts, but the cabbage worms are in them badly – so I’m not sure if I’ll ever get anything out of them.  My Zinnias are going strong, so is the second crop of raspberries.  I cut the sunflowers and was attempting to dry them in a box but they got all moldy and had to be recycled.  I ended up eating all the apples off the tree.  There were a lot. I was eating like 6 a day.  I did make a pie and a crisp as well.  Towards the end I was sharing them with yellow jackets. These are the local angry bees.  I never realized this but they actually eat into the ripe apples on the tree.  They dig little channels in them.  And finally – Ollie Wollie the Killer Collie graduated from K9 training with his certificate in basic dog stuff.  Which was great.  Yvonne was able to join me for every session so we got a consistency of training.  He’s not perfect, but he’s 87% better.  I can have him on the leash and he behaves.  He waits patiently for the release command before going through the door.  He has his own mat that is his ‘place’ that we can put him on and he’ll stay on it. And I’ve been run-walking with him on leash and he’s pretty good with that.  He really likes to pull though so it’s a constant battle.  It just goes to show you.  Even old dogs can learn new tricks.

Modern Meditations: 101 Ways to Slow Down & Connect to Spirit Section Two – Life Change -   Outro Ok my friends we have meditated 101 times through the ed of episode 4-465 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Ohmmmm….   I’m still going to the gym.  Twice a week.  I do arms and shoulders one day and chest, back and abs the second. I’m not going down to the pond to swim anymore.  I’ve decided I don’t want to.  I may swim at the gym, but swimming is kind of a high maintenance activity.  Instead, I’ve been run-walking 3 miles or so 3 times a week.   I’m still biking, but not this week because I’m in my taper, kinda.  I’ve been throwing in some yoga to try to loosen up a bit.   When I’m at the gym, after my weight sets, I roll out the mat in this other room where they do the classes.  Usually I have it all to myself.  So I can get into my bare feet and relax into a yoga session without bothering anyone. This Friday night, I was just finishing up my yoga and the kid came in to turn out the lights.  I always forget they close early on Fridays.  If he hadn’t seen me I would have been locked in! I have mixed feelings about the marathon on Monday.  I see the people checking in and taking pictures at the finish line.  I remember that electric feeling of being there after 4-5 months of hard work.  Lean and nervous and ready to go.  I am very far away from that fitness right now.  Like I said.  Mixed feelings.  I do have another race on the calendar.  The Mill Cities Relay is ON for December 5th.  I’m putting in a team of my old running buddies.   If I come out of the Boston virtual healthy I’ll see if I cant start slowly ramping it back up. Train for something in the spring. So that’s it my friends.  Mixed feelings and some ennui this fall racing season.  Now my challenge is to turn those mixed feelings into a spark of hope an get back on the training wagon.  The first time I ran Chicago was in 1998.  I was hoping to go sub 3-hours there after coming off a 3:06 Boston.  It didn’t come to pass because I got called away on a business trip to London that sidelined my training.   I ran ok, crashed a little at the end and missed my qualifying time.  That was 23 years ago. How time flies.  That’s a lesson for all of us.  Appreciate what you’re doing today.  In the blink of an eye it will be a memory.  Take time to breath in the gratitude. Take time to breathe out the love. And I’ll see you out there. My Apocalypse show ->     MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Rachel -> Coach Jeff ->

    The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-464 – Coach Chris Twiggs  (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4464.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Chris’ other show à Zero Prostate Cancer 2021 Boston - Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-464 of the RunRunLive Podcast.  Let’s see if I can get this one out on time! Today we have the legendary coach Chris Twiggs on for a chat.  I met Coach Twiggs down at the Bird in Hand Half Marathon.  He is the head coach for Jeff Galloway’s running program.  Chris is a high-level marathoner and ultramarathoner in his own right, and it was interesting to me to compare and contrast the Galloway athletes that he coaches to the traditional training modalities.  The net-net of it is that runners, whether they are the elites, the age groupers, the 100-mile-a-weekers, the casual athletes, the back of the packers – we are all as passionate about our sport and as curious about our training.  And in section one, since we have a lot of new runners in the world these days, with basic questions, … I’m going to give you piece on how to get started from scratch.  But – what you’re going to be really excited about is that I’ll start you out with a garden update and an Ollie update.  Here’s why.  When I meet folks who have listened to my podcast, this podcast, do you know what they ask me?  What they want to know?  Is it about training tips?  Is it about race adventures?  No.  They want to know how my garden is doing.  And they want to know about Ollie my crazy border collie.  So, I’m going to lean in! First the garden.  It was an interesting year.  We had some successes and some not-so-successes.  My tomatoes struggled because there was an epidemic of some sort of tomato disease this year in my area that caused all the leaves to turn brown and wither – they call it “Tomato Blight”.  It’s because the weather has been so wet and gloomy this summer.  I feel like I’m living in Seattle. Basically, you have to plan any outdoor activity around the next rains storm.  It’s not a 100% bad thing.  Lawns are nice and green.  I never had to water.  As a matter of fact, I mixed up a bucket of fertilizer-water in June and have not had to refill it.  The rain just keeps topping it off as I use it.  I did get some splendid heirloom tomatoes.   These nice golden tomatoes with red veins that were incredibly scrumptious with a little goat cheese.  Yummy.  It wasn’t a total loss. Yvonne made me plant onions, even though I told her onions don’t grow in my garden, and they didn’t.  I also had a fun experiment where I planted a bunch of old, sprouted potatoes in my compost bin.  They grew like gangbusters, until something discovered how yummy they were and ate them all up.  The composting process is amazing with all this rain.  It turned 4 feet of leaves and waste into a foot of soil that I’ll get to spread next year.  I had a very robust crop of peas.  So much so that I just gave up on harvesting them after a couple weeks.  They are a pain to shell.  Same with the Beans.  I harvested a couple times but ran out of energy. Same with the red raspberries that are now in their second fruiting, and I can’t keep up.    I had a great crop of lettuces early again because of all the rain, which was great, except for having to share them with slugs.  I had a good crop oof kale until the worms got them.  I had an outstanding crop of green squash and zucchini.  Barely kept up for all of June and July.  My herbs were all very stout.  I especially enjoyed the invasive mint plants this year for making tea in my home office.  I got a fair amount of cucumbers.  And a reasonable amount of these yellow semi-hot peppers.  But, my real successes were zinnias and sunflowers.  I had never before been able to grow a single sunflower.  The chipmunks love the seeds and dig them out.  I tried putting chicken wire down and they got through that.  I tried sprouting them first but they just ate the sprouts.  This year I built a little hot-house frame and grew them in peat pots.  I let them get a foot tall before planting the whole pot into the garden.  Sunflowers don’t like to be transplanted so you have to plant the whole pot.  These sunflowers were the Russian Giant variety and they got 8 feet tall and had great big happy flowers.  I have now harvested them and will see if I can get some seeds to eat.  The zinnias were a mistake.  My daughter started them and gave them to me thinking they were peppers.  But they were zinnias, they grew to be six feet tall and are covered with flowers.  Orange, pink, red – just wonderful to cut and bring in the house for a little liveliness of décor in the kitchen.  Now, I will present to you my other reasonable success this year.  First I’ll tell you a story.  In the book “ he tells the story of the establishment of the modern state of Israel.   When the settlers were establishing the first Kibbutz, they raised pigs.  Since pigs are not kosher, when they talked about the pigs or listed them in inventory they referred to them as “Turkeys”. Which brings me to my last reasonable success on my garden.   My Columbian Tomatoes.  Now I used to grow the old varieties of these Columbian tomatoes, back in the 70’s when it was illegal to do so.  Now in Massachusetts the Columbian Tomatoes are legal to grow for personal purposes.  I bought 20 seeds of a variety of these tomatoes, whimsically called “Purple Kush”.   Don’t get me wrong, I don’t eat these tomatoes anymore, I just like to grow them. About 15 of them sprouted.  I gave 10 away to friends.  I planted 5 in my garden.  2 survived. But, here we are at the end of September and they are quite vigorous.  They are like little Christmas trees.  About 3-4 feet tall and you can smell them 20 feet away.  I’m not going to try to bring them inside the house.  I’ll harvest them when the frost is approaching and hang them in my attic to dry.  If any of you out there have a hankering for Columbian Tomato casserole send me a note. I hear they make excellent baked goods. Oh – and apples.  I’ve got a tree full of apples.  I’ve made apple sauce.  I’m eating 6 apples a day.  I’m going to turn into an apple.  That’s your garden update.  How was it?  Everything you hoped it would be? OK – In section two I’m going to talk about the supply chain because it’s on the top of everyone’s mind. But – like I said – in section one I’ll talk about starting from scratch.  Here’s the thing. I told you I’m doing a fitness project at work.  I leaned in.  Because of that I’m getting these types of questions.  And it’s fun and rewarding to be able to answer them.  By leaning in I’m getting rewarded.  Find something you can lean in on and see what comes back to you as a result!

I haven’t been running, but I have been volunteering for races. I volunteered for Wapack and last weekend the local 5K.  Funny story.  The race director is a local guy, used to be the track coach and a pretty good IronMan.  When I saw the email I responded that I could help out.  And, of course, since he knows me, he ended up putting me in charge of the course marshals!  Remember what I told you.  Somewhere near you is a local race that needs your help.  So, that was fun.    I promised an Ollie Wollie update.  We’ve been through 4 session at K9 now.  Both my wife and I are going which is great.  He’s doing really well.  One of the best things is that he’s learned to wait at the door for me to go through it and give him the release command.  He’s a lot better on the lease.  He sits and stays very well. They don’t do treat training at K9.  They are all about the Martingale collar, which is a choke collar.  You correct the dog by giving them a pop on the choke collar.  It doesn’t hurt the dog, but it gets his attention.  He’s doing great and I think it’s giving him confidence.  I had him out in some pretty busy places today and he responded well.  Next week We have a conversation with Murray, one of our runner friends, who is a South African, teaching English in Korea and has written a book about meditation.  To take you out I’ll give you an opportunity to do some good!  I’m going to run-walk the virtual Boston Marathon this year for Zero the organization to end prostate cancer.  Since I’ve got so many people in my life that have been impacted by this stupid disease.  I’ve set up a page you can donate at.  And since they let you set up a vanity URL I created one that I’m quite proud of And I’m going to put it here at the end of the show so you can go there and do it now. Even if you’ve just come in from your run, and you’re all sweaty, and you can’t sit donw at the computer without ruining the chair.  Grab a towel.  Think about all the dads and brother and friends.  And click that link.
