Motivating through enfless winter
Found Phedip in Feb 2013 (new to podcasts) Alternating between current & "retro" episodes. I really appreciate your perspective & sense of humor. Keep on keeping on. / dave

Steves podcast on running is well researched, well written and well executed. It is funny and informative. I love hearing about his own struggles with running and life in general and I even forgive his infrequent angry outbursts for their honesty. Its always at the top of my playlist.

This site is one of about 20 podcasts listened to as I train for a marathon. His Boston marathon episode made my long run on Sunday easier. Hollywood couldnt have scripted a better production and saga.

Thank you for inspiring to start running again. I am catching up with episodes and only at episode 32, but love it! I listen to it during my runs and have one little comment. In one of the episodes you suggested to remove the headphones. I keep running with them, but at a volume level where I can still hear the passing cars, or any other noises around me. Keep up the good work and STOP not believing in yourself! If people say its a great podcast, then IT IS A GREAT PODCAST! :) Love every minute of it! Thanks for producing it and looking forward to all the episodes. Kati from Mt. Kisco, NY

Hi Steve, I am a new listener and just wanted to write in and vote for your podcast. My best-friend, who happens to be my twin sister, Anne turned me on to you show and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your insights of running and support of our great sport. Anne has been more than a best-friend, she has been my trainer, motivator and support as well as the best example of a real runner one sister could ask for in her lifetime. I now live in Paris France and find myself among other American women who love to run! This March 7th we are all running in the Paris Half-Marathon! For most of our group, it will be their first race and I know they will all do well and be strong- So for Anne, Laney, Carol, Rosalyn, Mary Jane, Jennifer, and Carrie- You are the Best and keep running! I am striving for a sub 2 hour- wish us all Bonne Chance on March 7th 2010!

Hi Steve, Thanks for the great podcasts. Its a good thing you dont need a lot of talent and skill to create them. Im kidding because you always give people a hard time for saying you have a lot of talent and creativity. The podcasts are great, your like a virtual running partner, one that talks so much that I dont have to worry about saying anything. If you ever come down to South Central PA, youll have a running buddy and place to hang out. If its summer, the pools always open. Take care, Leonard York, Pa

Steve Runner is the most inpirational man I have heard in decades, podcasting aside. Listening Phedippidations while having a medicore run makes it good; listening Phedippidations while having a good run makes it fly.

Phedippidations #1
I love Phedippidations. I started running 8 months ago for the first time ever. I downloaded about 12 different podcast and was quickly drawn to this one. I must admit at first it was because I couldt believe he was recording the show while running. After listening to many episodes and subscribing to new shows I love the passion he displays not only the sport of running but of helping runners. His humble approach make it seem easy for someone like me to step out and try something new that others would laugh at me for. I ran my first marathon in Chicago a few days ago and want to thank Steve Runner (Walker) for a wonderful and inspiring show.

Phedippidations is Awesome!
If you are a distance runner and want to listen to something different, that is informational & educational about running, inspiring and entertaining, then Phedip is for you. Usually in about one hour segments, this professionally produced podcast mixes up non-commercial music, running history, politics (softly), religion (gently), family banter, baseball, race reports, worthy community interest and whatever else is on Steves mind at the time. I find it is the perfect addition to my long runs; I find myself chuckling as I am inspired while pursuing my training. Phedip really make you feel part of the worldwide running community and through Phedip that community is getting smaller and closer together.

Steve Runners self-effacing humour makes his goofy little podcast a great listen for all runners or those thinking about it ... lots of encouragement to kick the couch of doom, with special guest star, his teenage son John. The keystone of the hour is a well-researched and presented relevant topic, generally followed by 15 mins or so of emails and comments from his array of fellow runners. Great info, great fun and great company to take on a run. Top marks Mr Runner!

Steve, Your podcast came along at a great time for me. It really re-energized my running. I am working through the back episodes (even though you discourage it!) and have enjoyed them all. You have put out a lot of great info as well as very interesting histories on the running legends. I just listened to the Terry Fox episode today. He truely was a wonder! It was terrific hearing all of the sound clips. Oh, and in spite of your occasional protests, the quality of Fdip is right up with the best of them. I listen to Leo Laportes tech podcasts alot and you are every bit as good as he is....he has had several where you can barely hear his guests. I never have a problem with yours.

Hi Steve - I run with you all the time, and even quoted you on my own podcast "dansmathcast" a couple of times; about percent of maximum heart-rate on my show #31. Keep up the great training, and hope you run sub... that there time you want!

Phedippidations - A reward for running!
Steve - I purposely hold-off on listening to an episode of Phedippidations UNLESS Im running more than five miles. Your wonderful Podcast serves as an excellent motivator for me to lace-up and start my run, on days that I otherwise just dont feel like it. Keep up the GREAT work! P.S. - I happen to be in Chicago the weekend of their Marathon, and while Im not running it this year (due to a prior hip problem which has since cured itself) I will be cheering for the 40,000+ runners! Having run Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and Austin Marathons, I can definitely say that the Chicago Marathon is the MOST enjoyable one that Ive run. The fans are terrific, loud, and unbelievably supportive, the scenery along the lake front is breathtaking, the distinctive neighborhoods makes the event fun. and finally the flat-as-a-pancake topography makes the course fast (2nd only to St. George in Utah IMHO). Live Long and Taper!!! Mark Ulrich (normally from Houston)

never again !!
after a 12 years couch break am back!!!! well I came back but not in good shape, 4 months ago I decided not to be a bad example to my kids any more, so I decided to walk and jog a little bit, however running is like riding a bike ,you never forget how to do it, of course you losse condition, endurance and speed but you dont forget how to move one foot after the other. So I decided to give me the chance to run again, now (minus 47 pound) am running, not even close as I use to, but running moving one foot after the other leaving trails of sweat all over. It seems like if the Running Gods have grant me not only a second chance but a great one, and I tell you why: when I was trying to figure how to start running again went to the internet loking for a way and then found your great podcast, which give inspiration, motivation and knwoledge at the moment am running 25 - 30 miles per week, no injuries at all, runing at a 10 minute pace/ please dont get me wrong am not a Rambo and I dont think that am crazy but Ill keep on runnig as I am as long as I dont get injure. But the best is that it seems that my kids have take notice of this summer transformation ... my 14 year old daughter has decide to embark this journey, Rocio is now a runner also, she joint her school track and field team, and on sundays morning with share a easy jog. My 12 year old daughter hasnt said anything yet but I cath her jogging her way around the block the other day. The Lord has bless me with a new opportunity , am embark in such a wonderful trip, am in a constant runners high thats why I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE A BAD ROLE MODEL TO MY KIDS.

After emailing you last week all exhuberant about Chicago, I woke up Saturday morning with shooting pains in my knee. Long story short, runner friends told me I had all the symptoms of runners knee and have been giving me advice on treatment, which Im eagerly seeking because I really want to make it across the Chicago finish line! Anyway, when I was working today, a friend left me a voice message. I had emailed her about my painful knee, and last week had encouraged her to listen to Pheddipidations 33 because it was so inspiring to listen to it so close to Chicago. She hadnt listened to your podcast before. So today her message was telling ME to listen to your podcast on knee pain. Guess shes further along in catching up on the archives than I am! :) I downloaded it tonight and look forward to listening to it. Thank you for all you do and all your passion!

Just love the show
I started running two months ago. I have so far had a hard time deciding what to listen to: I went from classical music, to rock, and even just silence. While I dont necessarily need to be distracted when I run, and while sometimes it is nice to hear just your footsteps on the path, when the going gets tough, it is nice ot have something to distract you. Steve Runners Podcast allows for moments of pause, mixed with reflections, and music, and info. I have started downloading the whole series. I will never forget I ran my first 8-k-er with Steve, listening to episode 109.

Phedippidations has continued to motivate and stimulate my wife and I for a year and a half. Podcasts come, podcasts go...but this one has been a constant companion throughout, especially during long runs. Im always thinking that when Im done with my run, Ill send Steve a thank-you email. Of course, at the end of the run, the hectic pace of life, most notably my 4 year old daughter, demands immediate the thank-yous get put on the back-burner. I imagine that there are more than a few of us that "intend" to write a letter of thanks. Great podcast! Thank-you from Delware Bill and Stacey.

I do something similar...
Steve, Hello again. I wrote you about a year ago (I am the guy from Jeju Island, South Korea). I gave you some information about my marathon training plan. While not completely the same as your current program, I also follow a plan of consistent mileage and speedwork. I have confidence in this plan and think if you stick to what you are doing, you will run some of the best times of your life. The other benefit of this plan is that it forces me to not over do it on a single workout/run. This helps eliminate the chances of being injured (something I dealt with often in my high school and university career). I love your podcast. I am one of those people that saves it for special runs. I have listened to every podcast and am impressed with the quality of your content. It takes a lot of work to make something like this and I appreciate it. Erik

Steve, Your podcast of the 1111th Boston was the best podcast I have ever heard. You did a great job of getting the personal drama of the marathon onto an audio media, while keeping it real without too much production effects.

I love it!
As an avid distance runner and big fan of podcasts, Phedippidations really fills a need for me. Steves commitment to shows, both production and consistancy, are to be commended. Recently, after a particularily ardous bout of running and weight lifting, I developed a nagging pain in my inner calfs. I noticed my last race times were falling dramatically. I sat and listened to one of the shows dealing with injury and was alarmed enough to follow-up with a physician. Sure enough, the Doc found some real damage in both tibias (sounds fun, right?). The point of this long winded story. . .Phedippidations is a podcast with not just entertainment value but with social value as well. Without listening to the show, I would have kept running up and down mountains, beating the hell out of my legs and no doubt hastening my time in an old folks home. Thanks Steve!

I greatly enjoy your podcast Steve. You bring together all your listeners into a single community. I run alone mostly but dont really feel that way anymore. We all go throught the same trials and joys! I have one comment to make. Ive noticed that Einsteins Theory of Relativity appies to runners as well as physics. Most runners are trying to get PRs, and have to work thier butts off to get there. It seems like you are going through the same thing I am. Your working your butt off to knock 23 minutes off your marathon time seems the same as me trying to knock 10 minutes off mine for a sub-3:20 marathon,. I doesnt seem to matter how many fast-twich muscles you are born with; the effort to PR is relative! Keep up the great work and good luck in Boston! Dave Schmitz

Im up to episode # 50. Steve, Ive been religiously listening to your episodes, in order, over the past 6 months. The only time I get to really focus on them is when Im in the aluminum tube 40,000 ft in the sky. I normally get in 2 episodes. It is quite enjoyable and really motivates me to hit the road in whatever city I land in with a good run. Im looking to catch up soon...keep up the GREAT PODCAST!!! btw, Ive never run with an iPod, but have been doing it lately listening to your podcast. I find that my pace is much faster. I do enjoy listening, but I also miss just the quiet, me and the road and letting my mind just relax. Terry Sigle, Allen, TX

Thank you Steve
I started listening to Adam Tinkoff- Burning 20 - in Jan 2006. Ive listened to the weight-loss thing, because that is what I was into. I heard Adam mention Phedippidations over the past YEAR! & I never checked you out. Then Adam started running, and I didnt! But I still listened, because I was into the gym & alot of cardio - esp. elliptical. Adam started Running 1000 - 1000 miles in the year 2007. I FINALLY looked up phedippidations - because I was burning my miles on the elliptical, and thought a running podcast would inspire me. I was right! I listen to your podcasts while I am at work (I work in an automotive factory - very boring work - lots of opportunity to listen to podcasts!) So I finally tuned in!!! (Yeah!!) The iTunes archive had your past episodes starting with #11. I started there, & am going through every episode since. I am so impressed with your consistency, dedication, research, commitment, knowledge, intelligence, creativity, .... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! The thing is - I am an almost 45 year old woman (I Think we are almost the same age - my birthday is July 20th, 1962). I am very dedicated to reversing the aging process - exercising (cardio, weights), losing weight, etc. I know this is a life-long process - no quick-fix. Thank you for your podcast - it inspires me to continue with my fitness & diet & weight-loss goals. It has also started the wheels spinning - Will I start running? I am certainly starting to be inspired... Thank you Steve Walker - I mean, Runner. You are awesome! Thank you from Southern Ontario, Canada. I am currently listening to January 2006, and am looking forward to catching up with the entire past year!

I am a complete idiot
Just started listening to your Pod-Cast yesterday and cannot stop...I actually did my long run to it yesterday which is amazing because Along with being an endorphine addict (formerly nicotiene and gin as well)...I am a music addict and did not think i would be able to run without a good beat. It turns out that I can hear your footsteps and we have almost the same stride. Its like having a running buddy!!! Thanks I am posting a link on my Runners Blog to share with others. Oh and I am a Complete idiot too. This week I am running with a sprained finger. How you ask did I sprain my finger...WALKING.

the miles fly by
Listening to the Pheddipidations podcast is a real enhancement for my solo runs. When Im flying along, feeling great, the cast is an interesting companion. When the run is more difficult, the cast lets me take focus away from the physical act of running and put it towards legendary figures, nutrition, other runners stories, etc. Give it a try!

We are in training, together but 200 miles apart, for a 10-K, a 10-miler, and a maraton this year. His first marathon finish was last October, and my most recent marathon as October 1986.

Im a runner who just finished a 10 race road race series and am training for my next half marathon and my first triathlon.

Thoroughly addicted to Phedippidations
Hi Steve Even though I can no longer run (according to my doctor...x rays revealing a herniated disc causing excruciating pain)...thus ending my comeback after 11 months on the road, I still download and listen to every show during my long walk of 6 miles every weekend. I am envious of you guys who can still get out there and pound the pavement. Each and every one of you has my respect and support. I wouldnt have been back on the roads had it not been for Phedippidations and it keeps me going (albeit slower and gentler). Heres thanking you from a devoted listener! Mike (from Pekin IN)

Keep On Running
Hey Dude, keep up the good work. Ive been sidelined since June with a blood clot (DVT) in my left leg. After almost 6 months of rehabilitation I am able to lightly run short distances with minor discomfort. I am 39 and to be diagnosed with a blood clot was quite a surprise, considering I was actively cycling, running, and weight training. I look forward to hearing you run and talk about running and how you claim to be a moron and an idiot even though you know you are neither.

Steve, Ive been listening to two shows at a time trying to catch up to the present day. I listen to it on my way home from work and use it to inspire me for my evening run. I am one of those that can listen to my mp3 player while running, I prefer to run along the canal tow-paths and I can hear the cyclists coming up behid me with earphones on, anyway I meet and over-take the barge people and I sometimes stop to pass the time of day with them (Im a very laid-back runner). I started running in June when I had my 46th birthday with no particular goal but to lose weight and get fit but I am now aiming to run the next local half marathon that comes along in the Spring. I have introduced my sister to your show who is a little older than me and who started running in October. I hope it gives her the same inspiration as it does me. Keep up the good work Steve.

Greatest podcast going
I got "off the couch" on 7/24/06 and had to work my way into running shape on the stairmaster for several weeks and then started some 3 mile runs in late august and worked up to a couple of 5Ks in Sept and early Oct with a PR of 24:53. I have bettered that in training runs since and actually was able to run 9.5 miles in training run today at 1:21:29. I love listening to Phedip and feel like I have learned a lot about running. I hope to compete in my first 1/2 Marathon on 4/28/06 at the KY Derby Festival MiniMarathon in Louisville and then do the Phedip Half next year. Oh I am 47, and really hadn done much regular excercise since hanging up my hockey skates 5 yrs ago (played about 12 yrs in a Mens League) here in Kentucky. Also, running has helped me shed about 31 lbs since July and has me down to a svelte 170lbs. Anyway, great job on the podcast, I really look forward to it!!! Hope you did well in the Marine Corps Marathon today. Joe in Nicholasville Kentucky

Sadly, former is an all-too-accurate descriptor of the word athlete... But your podcast is helping me ease back into the groove of mind over matter! Thanks so much for your spirit of encouragement...

Great podcast!
I started listening to this podcast a couple of weeks ago and it really adds to the enjoyment of my runs. Im just an average runner, probably not even that, but its something I love to do nonetheless. Its great listening to the thoughts of someone who shares that passion. I recently made the sad decision to sit out my first half marathon after an injury threw off my training schedule. This podcast has brightened my mood and given me the confidence that I WILL make it there someday soon. I can wait to catch up on all the past episodes. Thanks Steve! ~Lauren in MA

Hi Steve, I heard about your show via "triathlon radio". You think your goofy podcast was and un-polished and “lame” (your words not mine!) in the beginning? You should listen to Jeremy Vaughts early productions. Hilariously rustic, but hey, he’s doing it rather than sitting on the sidelines like the rest of us. In any event, I heard about from his 6th show about running style so you have to credit, right? I’m currently nursing a broken ankle incurred while running on a trail around my house in Monson MA, which is keeping me from my neophytic training program that will hopefully get me ready for my first Olympic-distance triathlon event in the fall of 2007. I listen to your pod cast all the time. It is not lame, in fact it’s loaded with great information, friendly advice and, more importantly, inspiration. That’s why I am finally taking the 22 seconds (less the time to compose this message) to vote for your pod cast. I will try to vote every month, but like you, I have a wife and kids, a squeaky door and plenty of other excuses to push out those certain tasks that we all seem to have a hard time getting to.

oh, the joy has returned
After my nasty habit of over training yet again, I was faced with the impending dread of four a.m. runs-that combined with a raging case of bursitis made me want to throw myself in front of not just the largest SUV, but any and all oncoming vehicles. But since I run so damn early, I couldn find any to do the trick! My rebirth occurred after discovering Phedippidations. Outstanding combination of fact and gut feelings regarding running. Steve is like having a friend to run with....without having to talk back and use precious energy! Could there BE a better friend than that??? Thanks so much for exactly what I needed to push me in my training for the MMC Marathon this October. Ive listened to just about every podcast out there while training and Phedippidations is has by far the highest quality of content. So good, I may even pay for it! Im running for my Dad this October-the Marine I am most proud of. I am also running for Lance Corporal Gregory MacDonald who was the 70th casualty in Iraq-one of the many Marines the entire country would be proud of if they knew him. Susan Carr Millis, MA

Steve, I was on vacation and I just catching up on Phedippidations and wanted to tell you what a terrific show that was about your trip to Maine and the tie in to Thoreau. Your essay was outstanding. I haven read any Thoreau in probably 30 years but I heard two Podcasts about him, including yours, and one other in the last few weeks. In both instances, I was a blown way by his perception and values. Thank you. Another great job.

using running as punishment
steve, i m a high school coach and constantly face the fact that other sports (like football) use our sport as a punishment. well i tell my runners that i will punish them with playing football. obviously this is tongue in cheek humor and i never have a reason to punish my runners. but the aspect of my statement does drive the football coach wild. love your podcast.

Looking forward to Falmouth
Hi Steve, Here is my August vote. Im really enjoying your podcast. The most recent episode of your canoe trip in Maine reminded me of my trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and the Canadian Quetico Canoe Park. Getting away periodically from phones, computers and work is a reality check we all need. It is so easy to get caught up in the world and miss out on life. Ill be running my third Falmouth Road Race in a week and a half. My father grew up in Falmouth about three blocks from Falmouth Heights Beach. I have been visiting about every summer most of my life. It is great to listen to your episodes of the Cape Cod Marathon and the Falmouth Road race. As you describe Nobska light house and the Road Race course, I feel that I am running with you. My minds eye sees exactly what you are describing and I love it. Currently, I am training to my second Chicago Marathon on Oct. 22, 2006. Im feeling great and I am hoping to beat my 2001 time of 4:45. My dream goal is the elusive 4 hour time. Im more disciplined in my training and Ive dropped about 15 pounds from 2001 weight. Ill have to gage my target pace as I get closer to the marathon date. Your podcast has kept me motivated to train and has taught me to train smarter. Thank you for the time, energy and other resources you put it to providing your fellow runners knowledge, motiviation and encouragement each week on your pleasantly goofy podcast. I hope to run into or with you in Falmouth. If I don see you, have a great race. Paul Eident Oswego, IL

I am continually impressed with the content, but probably more so with the down to earth presentation and humor (whether intended or not) served up every single week.

Steve Runner is a genious. Well maybe not a genious, but hes pretty freakin cool. I started voting for this show two months ago when I began listening to Phedippidations. It is by far my favorite.

Steve, just a quick note to thank you for what you do. I do most of my runs alone and my long ones are usually spent listening to your podcast. I have to go without every couple of weeks so I will have 2-3 hours worth saved up for my long runs. Every time I hear the theme song as I start my run it gets me in the mood for the long solitary hours ahead. I started running about 10 years ago and stopped after about 4 years. Took it up again last Feb. when my doctor told me I was going to be diabetic if I kept up my ways. I weighed 240 (58"), BP was 155/90 (on meds) and cholesterol was 365. I now weigh 165, BP is 110/65 and cholesterol is 155. I am training for the Wichita Marathon on 10/22 and look forward to training with you all for the half marathon. Thanks for all you do, God Bless! Doug

Steve, heres my monthly vote. Phedippidations is my favorite podcast. I was glad to learn of the Phedippidations Worldwide Half Marathon Challenge this evening. I signed up. Im number 168. I added the team names Fort Bend Fit and SugarLand, TX and I posted news of the event on the FBF discussion board. I wouldn be surprised to see more of my buddies in the Fort Bend Fit marathon training group sign up - "We are a Force"! (SugarLand also won the fittest city in Texas (for cities of our size) for the third year in a row.) Anyway, enough bragging....! Im looking forward to participating in the Challenge. Keep the podcast coming!! They are always entertaining, encouraging, inspiring and enjoyable! Run long and taper!

Goofy Little PodCast
Steve, You e goofy little podcast (GLP) is sounding much better down here in Fort Worth, TX. Im starting from the first show and listening to them in order - just finished your Christmas show, and I think you had around 90 people on the Frapper map at athe time. Ill bet its grown since then. Steve, your GLP sure has improved from those first few shows - man, they were rough, but even back then, the rambling diatribe stuff was pretty entertaining. Hey, whats that little girl saying at the end of each broadcast? "I did to say so?" Heres a plug for the Duck Pond Runners, established about 25 yrs. ago, near the banks of the Trinity River in Trinity Park, off University Drive in Fort Worth. We meet each Sunday morning at the Duck Pond for long runs followed by socializing and your favorite icy beverage. Sam Balandran is the CEO of the Duck Pond Runners, and completed his 103nd marathon in Dallas Texas on April 2nd of this year. Go Sam! A big shout out to Duck Pond Runners: Sully, Mr. Ed, SOB (Sweet Old Bob), Sarge, Santos, Blade, Free Willie, Donnie and Theresa, Kim and Linda P, Father Richard and Terrie, Murphy, Logan, Budman, Bob Chow, Lyin George and Linda, the Parrot, and of course Sam the CEO himself, and wife Libby. My next race is Septembers 200+ mile Reach The Beach relay in New Hampshire. We have 8 members on our relay team who will follow a fixed rotation to run the 36 legs of the race, starting in Bretton Woods, NH and finishing on the shore of the Atlantic ocean. Bob Allen, a.k.a.

That episode was good enough to get me to download and listen to #6, 10, 11, 16, and 28 while I painted the basement today (selling our house here in MN & moving to Bangor, ME). My wife was a bit upset with me (we e good - I took her out for dinner). You are extremely gifted at story telling and I like the way you honor people. Im generally a positive person (because Im a runner), but your podcasts kept me feeling good even though I was in the basement all day.

Phedip fan mail
I think Steve Runners podcast is great, and Steve is a really nice guy. I sound a bit mushy now but he just sent me an email and Im all starstruck. A great podcast for runners and probably non-runners, but then who am I to say? My tent is now pitched in the runner camp. Well, I might bike over to the triathlon camp but Ill swim back for a run. Er... anyway, Phedippidations. Always informative, always entertaining, occasionally (but importantly) inspiring and hardly ever puke inducing. Right Steve? Not only do I now want to be a better runner but with the episodes on volunteers and legends you can help but want to be a better person. Ever humble, Steve is dedicated to running and to the podcast. Don assume that humility means giving up easily. What lessons we learnt about commitment during the first podcast recorded during the Boston Marathon! Hence the puke comment. Can I say puke?

amazing podcast - number one for runners
This podcast was my introduction to podcasting and its set the bar very high - I run on my own and Steve has become my first (and best) running partner. Its interesting, engaging, informative, funny and extremely well written - Steve is far better than his modesty allows him to admit.

Still Listening
PS: Thanks for the 41B episode. I was wonderin. I figured it was some charity thing - and was almost expecting to hear a plea until you said you wouldn do that with the Podcast.... not that you e not a "good runner", just that you e about my level or maybe just a little faster, and Ive long thought Id have to give up on a Boston dream. Listening to your podcast and getting a chance to see the OLN broadcast of the race and Im starting to think about what it would really take to qualify (Like, lose 25% off my body weight of 200#) now that Im in my 50s. My family and friends would think I was terminally SICK(!) I would like to give that a try, but if Im not there by the time Im 60, Im going the charity route. Hey, maybe I can use that "skinny guy issue" to gather attention? Keep Movin Randy in Michigan

However, you keep me inspired to get in shape to compete, and Phil at heard you mention me and has been supporting me through posted comments and advice to my StumbleGuy blog. Hes helping me focus on a real target of 30 minutes pain free before moving onto participating in an event. This support is invaluable and wouldn have happened without your kind mention, so thanks again and heres my vote, the least I could do. Andy

I came here about one month ago from a bit you did on runcast weekly - witch may be a little - ok a lot more educational but not too regular and definatly not weekly and not as much fun, Every morning I lace up and take my dog out for our long walk - or myself out for a 10K either way I get to listen to a Cast or two and feel that I am listining to the rantings of a friend - a crazy friend but a friend none the less.

On Jan. 1st of this year, I made the choice to work hard to be a healthier and better role model to my two children (2&4yrs). I had no idea what I was doing, other than how to lace up my runners, but I hit the road and as of date have lost 32 pounds and am almost at my goal weight. I stumbled on to Phedippidations after I purchased a MP3 player to inspire me further on my runs. I am amazed at how much I have got out of Steves podcasts! I love the way he never talks "down" to new runners, but rather..encourages! I have truly been (and continue to be) inspired by his words and I listen to his words every day now to help keep me motivated as I learn more about the wonderful style of people that we call "Runners".

Hi Steve
Hello Steve, I almost forgot to vote this month. I am in the final week of my taper. I will be running the 3rd annual Salt Lake City Marathon this Saturday. Unfortunatly, the race orginizers moved the race from late April to early June and the weather is looking a little warm. I am hoping to break four hours. My training has been going well. It could hing on how hot it gets. I like the idea of the Half-Marathon that weekend I will be running the St. George Marathon so I would have to use my half-marathon split as my time. Keep up the good work with the show. You have come along way from producing a 15 to 20 minute show a couple of times a month. Brandon

Ive just started listening to your podcast and I love it. I usually run alone but now that Ive discovered Phedippidations, I have a new running buddy. I love your show. I download your shows from Itunes and listening to you keeps me going on my runs. I ran Boston in April and found your Boston race very interesting. I ran 4:00:19 which was just over my goal time of 4 hours. I ran a 3:43:59 at the SF Nike Womens Marathon in October of 5. I felt bad for you when you were hurling and could only imagine your discomfort. Congrats for finishing the race. Your show is great and I look forward to it every week. Keep up the great work!

Keep it up, Steve
Steve, Having run the Kentucky Derby Festival half-marathon April 29, I couldn help but think of you and an earlier podcast where you mentioned The Running Elvi. I laughed when I saw them and a couple of Priscillas with them at the race. The course had a great change this year that included an actual loop around the infield at Churchhill Downs complete with loud speaker voice calling a horse race as we ran the loop - a nice, envigorating touch at mile 8. My time for the 13.1 miles was 2:02+, a couple of minutes slower than last year, but I haven given up on my goal of a sub-two-hour mini. Im working on my first marathon which I want to run in October this year. For a 49-year-old guy who has only been running 3 years, thats not bad. Im listening as I type this to your podcast 45. You e awesome and so is your show. Keep it up and thanks, Jeff Ross Louisville, KY

This podcast gives such hope and meaning in such a unique format that its always enjoyable to listen to. To Steve Runner, please accept that your podcast does inspire so many of us to running. Myself? You have given me the inspiration to follow my heart when running - I found it such a silly desire to want to run long distances, to "waste" hours just running, but after listening to your thoughts and opinions, it is anything but a waste of time. As a simple request, could you talk about achilles tendon/heel injuries and how to train with pain?

Phedippidations Rocks!
Steve, Ive been listening to your podcast for a few months now - just want to make sure you know you are very entertaining, and after your latest Boston, I also have to say you e inspiring as well! I know how difficult it can be when your training goes very well, but then something odd happens on race day. I trained hard for my first Boston in 2004, and had my sights set on breaking 3 hrs. As we all know the heat turned the race into a Darwinian (is that a word?) experience, and I struggled to a 3:12. At Chicago that fall I was CONVINCED I would break 3 hrs - only to come across the finish line in 3 hours...and 8 seconds! That potty break I took on mile 11 not only cost me 30 seconds but caused severe leg cramps during the last 6 miles. I was pretty frustrated, but I didn give up. I trained hard for the 2005 Milwaukee Marathon, but also prepared myself mentally for the first time. I used several of the techniques that you later highlighted in Episode 27 (Mind Games) to help me get through some very difficult times in the race, and I came in with a 2:59. I was happy, but my wife was happier since she didn have to listen to me whine about not breaking 3 hours for another 12 months! I was proud of the way I gutted through the marathon last fall, but what I went through was nothing compared to your race at Boston. As I mentioned earlier, your performance was truly inspirational. It didn matter that you were tossing your cookies or that you weren going to make your goal time - you had the grit and determination to stay in the race. I hope I never encounter a situation like that during a race, but if it does happen to me, I will think back to how you gutted it out. Best of luck, stay healthy and keep podcasting!

Thank You!
My name is Mike from Yardley PA, I celebrated my fortieth birthday early this year recovering from surgery to repair my achilles tendon... a bump on my calcaneous wore its way through on my last attempt at serious mileage. Ive gotten my mileage back up, running farther than ever this weekend - 12 miles! Im attempting my first race ever this weekend at the Philadelphia Broad Street 10 Miler and Ill be "Running with the Bulls" at the Wall Street Run in New York on May 17th. Ive enjoyed your podcasts immensely and would like to thank you for the inspiration to get back out there and commit myself to preparing for and finishing my first marathon this fall - the Phila Marathon on Nov 19th. A question about hydration for long runs... Ive long used a camel-back hydration system while mountain biking and Im toying with the idea of using it on long-runs... the trouble is movement and bouncing. Ive thought of pre-driving my course and hiding bottles but sheesh - what a pain in the butt ;-) I just picked up a small Jansen fanny pack and tried running with a bottle in it - no go... the bouncing was maddening. How do serious runners hydrate on long runs? Thanks again for a truly informative and inspiring podcast - it makes my 2+hour commute each way from PA to NY much more enjoyable. Please give a shout-out to the folks at the Newtown Athletic Club, the greatest workout facility in Pennsylvania... and Thanks for the brand new flat panels in front of the treadmills! May the wind be at your back and may the dogs run at your side! Regards, Mike L. Yardley PA P.S. Heres an interesting article I came across from its entitled Walk a Quarter-Mile or Die... "If you can walk a quarter-mile, odds are you have at least six years of life left in you, scientists announced today. And the faster you can do it, the longer you might live." 2_walk_health.html

good job in Boston
I have a theory about running marathons: the slower your time, the more guts required to finish. Ive noticed in my own races that I have had to really dig deeper in the races that I have taken more time to run. Ive also noticed that often times the slowest runners (partly just because they e undertrained, but for numerous other reasons as well) are the ones who suffer the most. Im too much of a wimp to run without proper training, but Im blown away by those who can. Similarly, Im greatly impressed by those who run through injuries, bad days, and--yes, throwing up. Who says its the elites that have the guts? I would never have had the courage to keep running the way you did, Steve. Good job. Truly inspiring broadcast. Paul in Okinawa

Another vote, another PB
Steve - Just wanted to send a note along with my vote for May. I listened to your Boston-cast, and felt so bad for you! Im glad you finished, but its really too bad you didn have more fun. I guess theres always next year. Ive had a great month of training heading into my June 18th marathon - set a new 5k personal best of 23:36, and yesterday I set a new half marathon PB, too - 1:49:58! Im really psyched about the marathon now, and I think Im going to smash through the 4-hour barrier. Hopefully Ill see you in Hopkinton in a year or two! Thanks again for the great podcast - I listen every week - saving it for my running days. This week youll accompany me on a 90 minute hill run. Here in Winnipeg its pretty flat, so everyone does hill work at "Garbage Hill" - its really the only elevation of note in the city - a former garbage dump turned into a park area. People from other cities tend to find it pretty funny when Winnipeg runners talk about "The Hill", but really, we all know exactly what that means! Enjoy your time off after Boston. And keep those podcasts coming! - Pam (

Absolutely compulsive listening
Dear Steve, Ever since I discovered your podcast about 3 weeks ago, Ive been listening to Phidippidations while I go on my daily 5 miler (and the occasional 10 miler). Ive tried a whole lot of podcasts, some on running, but nothing is nearly as good and human as the stories and thoughts you share with us. My heart was breaking over your Boston marathon podcast but so many of us have done races where for one valid reason or the other we haven done as well as we might and you never hear these tales - you are / were not alone Steve!

It made me proud! l live in the Houston area and initially trained for the Houston Marathon with HoustonFit, also known as The Mothership, the first of the USAFIT groups. I would have never become a runner without this wonderful group of people. I now run and train with FortBendFit in SugarLand Texas, where I live. I have run three marathons (Houston (2) and Surfside Beach) four half marathons and 2 ultras (SunMart in Huntsville, Texas). I am grateful to be a part of the running community. Marathon training with fellow runners is one of the best things Ive ever done!! I look forward to future podcast and Ill be thinking of you on marathon day!! Go Steve Runner!! # 23116

Dear Steve, I wish you a successful run of the 110th Marathon. I could only look forward to the time when I will run a marathon and especially one so celebrated. Please do add me to the list of individuals who will be tracking your progress ( I had an opportunity to listen to Intervals in addition to episode 39 (now A) and I enjoyed both.

My names Tony DeLorenzo from Victoria, Minnesota and I have been running since the summer of 2003. I had decided to end my 19 year relationship with chewing tobacco and start a quest to fulfill a life goal of a marathon. I have never been a runner/jogger, but decided it was time to start. I needed the distraction. Well, I went on to run the 2004 Twin Cities Marathon that following October and I have been running ever since. My goal this summer is to complete 4 half marathons.

So Helpfull
I am new to running. I began in January this year. My longest distance to date is 3 miles, and I took a VERY long time to finish that! But I plan to get better, to run harder and longer, and to actually become what you and your listeners already are. I listened to your podcast "The Marathon Mystique" on Sunday while I was out for my run. I enjoyed it because I felt as though someone were running with me. I can listen to audio books, and most of the running music Ive tried is to repetitive, which makes me focus on the next 10th of a mile rather than enjoying where I am. I thank you for that. I know its remedial for most of your listeners, but if you could throw in some advice for newbies ever now and again? My issues are with nausea, flat feet, and shin splints. Maybe you already do, and I just haven listened enough? Or maybe theres another podcast out there that would benefit me as well. Thank you again, and keep up the great work!

Thanks for giving up your time to make such a great show! I been listening to Phedippidations since Christmas. Mostly I listen in the car on the way to and from work - driving around the M25 motorway which encircles London, England. Ive been enthralled by all your shows and have listed to some shows repeatedly. I always wondered why you are so self-critical. But now I know. I decided to play "The Lonliness of the Long Distance Runner" episode whilst by 8 year old son was in the car. He verdict: "boring". I thought it was great! But then, hes not a distance runner.

Steve: Like you Im preparing for a marathon in 6 weeks: On April 23 I will run my 8th marathon in Hamburg. Unlike you I haven trained consistently during the last weeks. Some minor injuries prevented me from doing the very long runs. For this weekend I plan my first 30km-run. I wish you good luck at the Boston Marathon (where I plan to participate in 5 years, if I manage to meet the qualification time). Have fun! Peter from Kaltenkirchen, Germany p.s.: thank you for the kilometers, Celsiusses etc. p.p.s.: congratulations for Phedippidations, the best podcast available

Broken Tow
Hi Steve Thank you for the last month episodes! They help me while I can run because of an broken tow. The tip of an 19" rackmount angle of an ethernet switch hit the tip of my middle tow on my right foot. Maybe some listeners have experiende how long it will take to heal a tow that is in peaces and what I can do to get back on the road as soon as posssible as well as how to train meanwhile? Many Thanks, Jens

Steve - Pam here again (, logging my March vote. Ive almost caught up to the most current episode, after that I guess I only get one per week, eh? Heres my one (sort of ) criticism... it would be great if the volume level of the show could be a bit more consistent. As it is, I find myself adjusting the colume a lot between the runcast sections and the voiceover sections and the songs... its a bit of a pain because the volume buttons on my MP3 player are tiny, and especially hard to work wearing gloves. Thanks for all your work putting the show together, Im really starting to feel like part of a Phedippidations Community! - Pam

The Podcast is Global
The real freeing of the airwaves is that no matter where in the world you live and listen, you can find other people who share your passion, highs and lows. Phedippidations takes simple premise of moving one foot in front of another, from the roads of Mass. to the orange groves of the Kibbutzs I train in here in Israel. And what is amazing is that we runners now have a kindred pair of trainers pounding the asphalt listening to Phedippidations all at the same time, when we want in time zones and places to bizarre to list here.

Once again, nice job
Steve, I have been listening to your podcast for about the last 6 months, and I do enjoy it. Since you like to hear inspirational stories Ill give you mine - as do enjoy them as well. It was three years ago last month that my epiphany “hit me”. I was 29 and woefully out of shape. My daughter was already 1 year old and I couldn’t even keep up with her. I was about 250 lbs and felling miserable. I had run in the past and knew how good my body reacted to it so I took it up for good this time. Like I said, it’s been just over three years and I run about 30-50 miles per week, I am 6’0” and 170 lbs. While I learned the hard way – sticking at 190 lbs for almost a year- that running doesn’t mean you can eat anything and everything you want – I have also learned to eat health and control my portions. I, like you am a middle of the pack runner (who isn’t?), but I am looking to compete in my first (not yet 13th) marathon this year. I really look forward to when my iTunes lets me know there is a new Phedippidations. I typically listen to it on my commute home from the office, and while I wish it was longer, or my commute shorter, I can understand how life can get just plain busy. Keep up the great work and I’ll keep voting…and listening. Run long, and after that keep running Charles Gaithersburg, MD

my vote
Steve, Ive been running for about 13 years. I ran in college and was a regular in local road races for several years. I ran one marathon. I had knee surgery 2 years ago and as many of us have been told, "I should never run again". Slowly but surely I got back on the road and am now training for the Bayshore marathon. A few times in your show you have mentioned a scenario such as this--where someone was told they would never run again and they have come back successfully and I wanted to add my case to that. That said, I will never be as fast as I once was and that gets frustrating. I can run the pace per mile in a 5k that I used to be able to run in a half marathon. However, I enjoy running and appreciate it now more than ever. Your show touches on the issues that are real to all runners and it is just plain awesome. I have moved several times since college and met my closest friends in each location through running. We immediately share a common bond and I think thats what you capture so eloquently in your show. Thanks for keeping it interesting on the road. Sarah

fine form
I enjoyed your last podcast on running form, although I disagree with you on one point: I think a lean, properly done, is better for a runner than the perfectly erect posture of Galloway. In the spirit of Danny Dreyers "Chi Running" method, keeping your spine straight, but tilting forward from the ankles is more efficient and better for you. It avoids heel striking (which slows you down and is bad for your knees) and pushing off on the balls of your feet (which is bad for your shins). The lean essentially puts your feet very slightly behind you, which means all effort contributes to forward movement. I have adopted the lean, and have found my long runs to be far less punishing, and noticably faster. I will be giving it a try in the Cowtown marathon next week in Ft. Worth, TX. So, Whitman was right after all! Thanks for all the podcasting, Chris Fonnesbeck Atlanta, GA

Great Podcast
Steve, I am a new listener and I love the show. I have been running for many years and have only recently started to use a MP3 player while running. I used to be a slightly ahead of middle of pack runner (Marathon PR of 3:33) but last March I, in the doctor’s words, "exploded" my left ACL playing basketball. I was not able to start running again until September. I ran the Thanksgiving Day Race 10K in Cincinnati and then in December suffered a set back with a right IBT inflammation. I am now back to my base of 3 7-milers a week, and when I can, I run on the weekend. My times have gone from a training base run of under 7:30 miles to rarely doing better than 8:00 miles. I have, however, learned to adjust. I now accept that I will likely not run a qualifying time of 3:30 for my age group. I also now record all my PRs as pre-ACL and post-ACL. Can blame it all on the ACL, it could also have something to do with the 8-10 pounds I still need to lose to get back to my pre-injury fitness level. But at 44, that will take some time. But at least I am back running. I am very grateful the good Lord helped me back on the road, and my family is grateful that I am not as grumpy as I was when I could not run. I say I run for fitness, both mental and physical fitness. Thanks for your Pod cast. It is a great companion on my runs. If you ever make it out to the Flying Pig in Cincinnati let me know.

Hey Steve! I work for Downtown Evansville, Inc. and we are hosting a Downtown 5k Spring Scurry, so if anyone is in the Evansville (In) area sign up and have a great time, Free t-shirt! Designed by me. If you are interested the date is April 29th. The race starts at 9am. For more information and to download a race flyer please visit and click on race schedule and we are under April 29th! I love the podcast! And have been a faithful listener since last July. I have a question…If you get a blister, (sometimes it happens) what can I do to make it heal faster? Also I am a huge fan of weightlifting! I am an average runner like you, but without my weightlifting, I would be the last one in across the finish line. I noticed a big difference after talking to my personal trainer he gave me exercises to strengthen my running. So I think that when you run out of ideas, proper weight training would be an excellent topic to boost our running performance! Giving up is not an option, Keep running. –Monica

Great podcast !
Hey Steve, Again congrats for this high quality podcast. Im listening to your weekly podcast while running (long) on week ends. Great advices for runners, I always learn something new, and it is also very good to hear about the other listeners feedback. Unfortunately Ive got a knee getting a bit bad thus Ill stop for a while .... with the growing frustration of the injured runner.... Anyway, I aim to recover on time for the Rambouillet Semi Marathon taking place on March 12th in the surroundings of Paris. Keep it up ! Cheers Gilles

Run long and taper??
Hi Steve, Ive been listening to your podcast for a couple of months now, and they are great. Your mantra - run long and taper, I think I have a vague idea what you mean, but exactly what do taper mean? Ive tried to find it in translationsbooks but haven found a translation good enough for me to get the exact meaning of the word. Keep up the good work, you e my inspiration when I suit up for running in the cold, dark, rainy and windy evenings in southern Sweden.

Steve, Thanks for running with me. I have been running for a little over a year and ran the Marine Corps Marathon in October. I ran as part of Team-in-trainig raising funds for the Leukemia Society. What a great experience!! I really don have any running friends to run or talk with about training. Your podcasts have added companionship. Thanks so much and keep up the great work!

Im sure of it, your have the best podcast in the world
Steve, hope all is well. Im on the road about 10 hours a week and have a chance to listen to many podcasts. There is no doubt that yours is the best out there. As Ive mentioned before, I finished my first Marathon here in Dallas in December. I plan on running 2 per year and I don want you to go away - I may stop running if you stop podcasting. I have a suggestion for the show. I am always inspired by other people doing amazing things. I think you should have a segment every week on someone who beat the odds. You often mention people that overcame great odds or injuries - Id like more details about their transformation or return to running. In a magazine I recieve, they spotlight these transformations, sometimes it is wieght loss, sometimes it is overcoming an injury. They chronical the story - where they started, their plan, the workouts, where they are now. Anyway it is probably a "goofy" idea. Also, Id like to know what other listeners are doing every week as far as milage. Maybe we could have a Phedippidations index. You know like we averaged 22.1 miles last week as a collective listening body and we beat it this week by averaging 23.5. Or something like that. Technically it may be hard to gather such data. Anyway, keep up the good work Mike from Dallas

Great podcast, great podcaster!
Steve, I agree with the comment from a recent listener that you are too hard on yourself. You REALLY are a great podcaster - go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back. Id be ecstatic if youd give a shout out to my running club, the Track Shack Marathonfest club based in Orlando, FL. Track Shack is the hub of the running community in central Florida, and is sort of a home away from home. I love going in to pick up race packets or buy new duds and smelling the truly unique "eau de old running shoe" when I walk in the door. The Track Shack crew is phenomenal, as are the pace group leaders of Marathonfest. My group, which meets at 5:45 Sunday mornings (and at 4:45 for summer long runs), is one-of-a-kind in their ability to inspire, tell great stories just as my legs are about to give at around mile 16 on long runs (such as the infamous key story told by my group leader - Ill be kind and let her remain anonymous), and just make everyone feel at home. To make things even better, my husband started running with us in January and we now use the time to catch up on things we didn get to talk about during the week. Running is a great couple sport, and I really feel blessed to be able to share the experience of running with my husband. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for your podcast at let you know that my husband and I love it. Keep doing what your doing and, as John Bingham would say, "waddle on, friend". Laura Apopka, FL

Steve, I don like running. But, one of my siblings thought it would be a great idea if we ran a marathon. So, some of us family and friends are training for the St. George Marathon, and as it gets closer, we e starting to get serious about it. I like the gym. I love motocross, even at my advanced age of 42. Running is not fun. When I run, my only thought is "how much longer?" Then I started listening to you. You make me WANT to like running. Im starting to put in more miles. And even though I don think I like running, I look forward to my runs? Whats up with that?

Listener since December
Steve, Started running in December after a 10 year "break". Ran the Marine Corp Marathon (in 4:20) back in 1995 right before my wife and I started having kids(3). Sleepless nights, diapers, covering for each other for the past 10 years and the little ones are finally self-sufficient enough that I have some time for myself again (thats my excuse anyways). Started easy on the tread mill and after less than 2 months, ran a 5 miler this am. Thinking about making a run for the MCM in October. Found your podcast on itunes and really enjoy it. I look forward to having you run with me on my "long" runs each week. Thanks for all you work on the podcast. Eric ps. Have you ever read ChiRunning? I have found it to have lots of good stuff in it. The author is actually teaching a full day class here in DC in April and I am thinking about signing up.

Hi Steve, Gosh, I guess I had the half marathon blues! I fell away from running in early November and am just getting my feet back under me. The nice part of that is being SO behind on Phedippidations that I have recently been able to listen to two episodes per run and thats pretty sweet! However, Im nearly caught up and am afraid that you might need to increase your output a little as I have become quite accustomed to listening to several episodes per week by now.

Heh, Steve: Keep up the great work on your podcast. I know you keep talking about poor audio quality, but maybe you have to be an engineer to hear the problem, sounds fine to me. Then again I usually tune in part way through my long run, so maybe my oxygen starved brain isn as sharp then. Im a triathlete, trying to push my run endurance so I can do longer tris. I plan to do a 1/2 marathon in February and a full in May (the Mississauga Marathon near Toronto). My longest strictly running race to date is a 5k. I, like you, have my sights on a 4 hour time, although that may be too ambitous for my first marathon. Well see. I have no specific suggestions for future podcasts, but really like the format and will keep listening and voting. Cheers Dr Tim

Steve, I can thank you enough for your "goofy little podcast"! I did indeed take that hardest first step on Jan. 1st and started running once more (after that 14 year lay off I told you about). I have to take it a bit slow and the miles aren piling up as fast as Id like (running at 52 is a little bit different than running in your 30s...sad to say).....but I will not stop! Just listening to you brought back everything I loved about running and made me HAVE to get back out on the roads again. Now when I listen to my breathing and the sounds of my shoes on the pavement as I run, I think back to all your podcasts (yeah, I know...sick, huh?) and I know I have you to thank for getting me back out into my body once more! Thanks for all the time and effort that goes into your podcast and I am definately telling all the people I know who run about this little gem. Mike (from southern Indiana)

Running without moving
Running is physical activity, but anyone who has run for any lenghth of time comes to appreciate the mental aspects of running. For me, listening to music or even Phedippidations would detract from the sounds of my footsteps, breathing, and wind. I love that sound. I usually listen to Phedippidations during my drive to and from work and after a couple of weeks I realized that when I hear Steves footsteps, breathing, and the other sounds of running, its almost like bonus time. Im running without moving.

brett again
I just voted for you, but I just wanted to add that you greatly represent those of us who are runners. I really just started running this summer, and am now obbsessed, competing in all three seasons of xc and track. You completely captured my guilt of wanting to run, even if I'm injured, along with the realization that poeple may not support what you love to do. Thanks again, love to hear anything you'd have to say. Anything on high school running or training for competive shorter distances? Actually, something we could all benefit from (you may have already talked about it) is the hardship of having patience. Sometimes I want to improve and see results right then, and have trouble waiting. Also, I could use advice for coming back from a several week injury. It feels like I'll never be a strong runner again. Thanks, Brett p.s. I give permission to use or say anything on your podcast.

Hi, I am a female freshman runner just south of Boston who loves your podcast. I just got an ipod for Christmas and have downloaded all and listened to many of your episodes. Ive been injured with a pulled groin for several weeks now, and your podcast has helped me throug it. They areare funny, inspiring, and helpful. Theyve actually got me to thinking about making a podcast for high school runners. Basically, I love thinking about running practically all the time, and love to hear anything that has to do with it. Maybe Ill see you at a race sometime, although Im not doing the distance you are. Thanks! Brett p.s. you can use this or mention anything on your podcast if you want

Listened to several podcasts (Phedippidations and many others) over the Holiday break. Only this one really stood out as excellent! Steves authenticity and "down-to-earth" style makes him very likable and fun to listen to. The first few minutes of episode 25, I laughed out loud--I could have written some of it myself! One of my favorite "pranks" to play on my co-workers is to say, "Hey, want me to ruin your life in 10 seconds?" followed up with, "Smell is particulate." And of course, the fact that its about RUNNING... well, thats just icing on the cake! From just another ordinary (or, sub-ordinary) runner... :-)

running with Steve Runner...
Contrary to your humble comments, your podcasts have great production qualities... thoughtful poems and quotes, awesome music to give us time to ponder your thoughts, and your humorous narrative that evokes the dreams in all of us. Im a solitary runner, but the road is a little less empty when Steve Runner keeps pace with me on the long run. Im 46, started running 2.5 years ago. Got to the mailbox the first day. The stop sign the next day, then all the way to the end of the street by the end of the week. After 6 months I ran a the Miami Tropical 1/2 marathon and got so hooked on running that I know I won ever stop. Ran the marathon the next year and got leg cramps at mile 16 yet somehow I put the wheels back on to pull off a 4:26 marathon in Miami! Im looking to break 4 hours somehow someday! With a entertaining and informative guy like Steve Runner chasing me, Im sure itll happen!

Diatribes on diatribes
Random comments on random shows: I was a Philly fan when the Red Sox lost the World Series to the Mets in the most humiliating fashion possible. Like all loyal Philly fans, I passionately hated the Mets, so I was somewhat rooting for the Red Sox, but after it was all over, I consoled myself with the knowledge that the Mets could not take any pride in winning against such a pathetic opponent. In Steves diatribe about dogs running unchained outside, he defends the dogs, saying the doberman chasing him just wants to play. I had this vivid image of Steve trying to outrun a doberman. The dog didn want to play; he wanted lunch. "Goofy" is one of the "goofiest" words Ive evern heard--both words should be banned from the English language. "Diatribe," on the other hands, should be used more often. Steves diatribe reminds us that running can make you crazy: MAD, adj. Affected with a high degree of intellectual independence; not conforming to standards of thought, speech and action derived by the conformants from study of themselves; at odds with the majority; in short, unusual.

Steve is a funny guy. I like his self-deprecating humor and his willingness to just let it all hang out. And its great to listen to a real runner talk about real running things rather than a retired elite runner who gives theory.

Spurring me on
Thanks, Steve, for your runcast. I don consider myself much of a runner (snorting derogatorily as I type that) and am always trying to talk myself out of doing it (Im too tired, I have to cook dinner, its wet outside, the excuses are endless). However, your podcast is inspiring me to think of myself as a runner (regardless of how old and slow) and Im getting a little more excited about it. Afterall, I am faster and more consistent about it than I was a year ago.

I have listened to all of your podcasts and have really enjoyed them. My favorite one was the Falmouth episode when you are talking a little trash with your friend. It was very funny. I thought it showed the comraderie that exists among runners who line up every weekend to test the limits of their own ability. By the way I was in Boston for a wedding during the second weekend of October. I was impressed by all of the runners downtown. My goal is to also qualify for Boston. Right now I need to get a lot hour faster. Keep up the good work. Brandon

Found your podcast last week and have been running and listening , with great pleasure , ever since. Would it be possible to put in a sound (tone) ten seconds before each funny bit so the people running in the opposite direction will stop giving me those strange looks. Three people who passed me in the opposite direction while you were having a dialogue with the driver of the Dodge looked like they were going to call the cops. With an early warning I should be able to reduce the hysterics to a muted giggle. Thanks.
