Episode 8 – The Spirit of the HALF Marathon

This episode (download here), the guys start with Jason’s DailyMile update. He is up to 9 miles! His weekly update included a successful 5k race and a 9 mile long run. Raymond finally got some good news regarding his injury. Four to Six weeks of physical therapy might get him back in his running shoes.

The topic of discussion was based around the documentary “Spirit of the Marathon” and motivation as race day gets closer. For those runners who have not seen this documentary, it is a wonderful film about new, old, and elite runners. You will be moved by their stories as they prepare for the 2005 Chicago Marathon. Edit: @goofy57runner on Twitter informed me that you can watch this movie on hulu.com

As far as gear, we talk about Jason’s new Coleman RTX 200 hydration backpack and energy gels.

What the… we have feedback? We read email from Simon and Steven. Then we mentioned and “harassed” Speedja on twitter. Just like us, he was motivated after watching the Spirit of the Marathon.

Until next time, leave feedback on iTunes, email questions and comments to feedback [at] GeeksInRunningShoes [dot] com. Also, follow us on Twitter, Jason (@guttocutwl) and Ray (@adeyemiking).

As always, thanks for listening!
