RRT 62: Running with dogs

Chris Russell and Buddy the Wonder dog from the RunRunLive podcast talk with co-hosts Marathon-Manic Tory (aka MsTeechur) from Washington State, a teacher and fitness coach (Journey Fitness blog and podcast) who runs with Wiley, and sometimes Dash. From Nashville, is Marc, who is just starting to run with his dog, Sancho. Bridget is from Suburban Philadelphia and is looking to get a dog to run with. Timekeeping is Toni ( who runs with Nelly. We ask advice from journalist Julie (aka FunnyRunner), host of the brilliant blog LLOL (literally laughing out loud), who writes an endurance training column for the Baltimore Examiner and recently researched the subject for the paper, "How far can I run with my dog?". And we talk about running races with dogs - (

RRT 61: Marathon & Beyond

Listen in as Mike (Westy's Running), Albert (Albert Runs) and Lesley (Going the Extra Mile) welcome Jan Seeley and Joe Henderson from Marathon & Beyond magazine to the roundtable.

Jan is the publisher of Marathon & Beyond and has been running herself since 1974. Jan has been with Marathon & Beyond since it was launched by Human Kinetics back in 1997 along with editor Rich Benyo. They purchased the magazine from Human Kinetics but we will hold off on any more info until the show. Since Rich can't join us they arranged for a very special guest substitute, Joe Henderson. Joe is a prolific author of over 2 dozen books on running (my favorite is his book on George Sheehan, Did I win?) and a featured columnist at Marathon & Beyond. Heck he's even made it to wikipedia: Joe Henderson.

During the show we discussed the magazine, it's format, history, why is it different than other running magazines and a variety of other topics with Jan and Joe.

Jan offered to send a free copy of their Jan/Feb issue (featuring the profile on Joe Henderson) to the first 50 folks who email her at and anyone who signs up for a subscription will also receive the free Jan/Feb issue and they will include the M & B GoHat. I have been a long time subscriber and I can highly recommend it (I should add NFI), it's just a great read.

You can also sign-up for Joe's newsletter from his website, also mentioned in the show was the Dick Beardsley running camp which you can find more information about it on the Marathon & Beyond website.

We were joined in the chatroom by Resurrected Runner, SteveRunner, CEWTWO, Kelownagirl, RushRunner and probably a few that I missed, sorry about that.

Thanks all for a fun discussion about Marathon & Beyond.
