This week Sue recaps the Pineland Farms 50 Mile race; Meagan begins her pre-marathon-training training; Mimi Anderson recounts her eating issues in Beyond Impossible in Meagan’s Book Club; and our Runner Girl of the Week sets some new PRs when she tries again at a really big goal.
This week Sue and Meagan complete all of their training runs and Sue recaps the Hampton Half Marathon; we think about continuing our discussion of A Beautiful Work in Progress in Meagan’s Book Club; our Runner Girl of the Week runs an *almost* 5K; a listener shares some feedback; plus we discuss the results of the Tokyo Marathon and the 4th fastest marathon in history.
Bonus episode for this weekend (or Sue is just catching up on her editing backlog). Meagan begins her new half marathon training plan; Sue finally makes it to a race this year; our Runner Girl of the Week is conquering mountains; and since when is there running in the winter olympics… or is New Balance now sponsoring auto races? We’re very confused.
Fall running weather is here along with the start of the fall racing season! Meagan recaps the LMCU Bridge Run, Sue struggles with breathing during runs, we discuss Adharanand Finn running Comrades in Rise of the Ultra Runners, crown a marathoner for this week’s Runner Girl of the Week, and find out who will be running the Berlin, London, Boston, Chicago, and New York Marathons.
This week Sue shares a socially-distanced race recap, we have brand new Runner Girl Recommends, discuss North in Meagan’s Book Club, and we crown a new Runner Girl of the Week.
