Last week, I put out a call for podcast suggestions for long runs…the response was AMAZING!
I was so excited about the outcome, and was even more jazzed that the idea inspired others – in fact, my pal Megan even posted about her podcast finds and success! That’s one (of so many) things I love about the running / blogging / social media community – we’re all here to support each other!
Here are some of the popular picks that surfaced:
NPR podcasts: Wait Wait, Don’t tell Me – This American Life – Fresh Air – Car Talk – Books
Fitness-related podcasts: Jillian Michaels
Running-related podcasts: Marathon Talk
Humor / popular culture podcasts: Cocktails and Creampuffs

As for my long run – it went great! 18 miles up and down Charlottesville hills – finished in about 2 hrs, 41 minutes I actually opted for a unique variety of audio entertainment – I checked out NPR’s Fresh Air Podcast, the NY Times Book Review Podcast and the WDW Radio Podcast I was definitely entertained through the miles.
Riding on that success, I finished out this month strong – 4 recovery miles Sunday, 5 indoor interval miles Monday – for a grand total of….drum roll please…
141 miles for April – highest mileage month for me EVER! As long as I can keep up training healthy and injury-free, May should be even more full of miles, just in time for taper madness into the first week of June and my first BQ attempt marathon
Speaking of June…stoked to meet up with Lizzie this evening for our Utah planning session It’ll be here before we know it!
Got any exciting summer plans?
