Staunton Police Officer and 100 Mile Man Erick Kuhlmann - Episode 56

What you'll hear on this episode:

 

Erick Kuhlmann is a police officer with the Staunton Police Department. He works long hours and varying shifts. Yet, he still finds time to train for 100 mile races and a host of other marathon and ultra distance races in between. Erick spent time talking to me about shifting from marathon distance road races to ultra distance trail races. 

We also talk about his 2018 Boston Marathon. He talks about the weather conditions many called the worst they'd ever run in. He shares what it was like to line up with his dad who was running his first Boston Marathon. That, after an accident several months ago left Erick and his family wondering if his dad would ever run again. 

Erick offers all of us advice about the mental and physicial preparation required to run longer distances. He's run over 100 of them, so his advice is worth something.

An interview with Triathlete Harvey Dawkins - Episode 54

What you'll hear on this episode:

Harvey Dawkins is an elite athlete. You wouldn't know it by looking at him when he's competing, but he also has cerebral palsy. At the age of 3 Harvey's mom got him a tricycle. That opened doors for Harvey that would lead him to ride long distance bike rides for a friend suffering with MS, and eventually to an ironman. 

Havey's mantra is "don't quit." When the physical challenges begin to press on him, Harvey draws on a mind that's told him all his life he can overcome anything. 

This is an inspiring interview that left me committed to drawing a little more on the "don't quit" attitude in my own life.

An Interview With Georgia Jewel Race Director Jenny Baker - Episode 53

What you'll hear on this episode:

Back in December I interviewed Jenny Baker. We talked about her new book: The War on Normal. We also discussed diet and a huge running group she started at her old church in Cincinnati, Ohio. We talked about a lot of cool stuff. And we also mentioned she is the race director for an ultra trail race: The Georgia Jewel. 

That part of her life kept whispering to me until I, along with my friend Nicole, registered to run the 35 mile Georgia Jewel race in September 2018. Over the next several months Jenny and I will have conversations about trail running, how road runners make the transition to trails, stories about the Georgia Jewel, training tips and struggles, and much more. 

Jenny Baker is on fire for life. You can't listen to her and not feel compelled to live life bigger. Maybe you won't want to go run up a mountain. But then again, maybe you will.

Jodi Stoner’s Boston Marathon Run for River_ Episode 52

What you'll hear on this episode:

Back in the fall of 2017, I interviewed Jodi Stoner for the first time. She told us how her running journey began, and how it led her to 6 year old River. River has Spina Bifada. Jodi didn't know much about the congenital defect of the spine at the time, but she learned about it as she fell in love with little River and became passionate about supporting him. 

When we talked she had already qualified for the 2018 Boston Marathon. She was training for it. She was looking forward to running this dream marathon for River. 

And then she showed up in Boston last week. The race turned out to be anything but what she had pictured. Heavy rain, cold temperatures and 50 mph winds made the conditions historically challenging. In this interview, Jodi takes us through the mental challenges of the day, and how she ultimately achieved her dream. 

She is a Boston Marathoner.
