RRT 61: Marathon & Beyond
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 Jan@marathonandbeyond.com 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.

RRT 58 - Picking a training plan
Joe Garland runwestchester.wordpress.com, and
Dr Jami runnerforgood.blogspot.com, who all talk about the importance of a structured plan including speedwork, repeats, tempos, intervals and hills. Good plans are recommended from books including Daniel's Running Fomula, Run Faster, From Last to First (Joe's blog review of that book) and the RunnersWorld Ryan Hall Half plan.
The controversy of charity runners displacing qualified Boston runners gets a cameo Steve Runner rant and Joe blogged after the RRT conversation with Marci a few weeks back, on Charities. In the chatroom were Matt (@runnerMatt) from the DumpRunnersClub podcast, dennrunner, Colin Hayes from his blog, Resurrected Runner, Steve Chopper (@stevechopper) from the a miles with me podcast, Papa_Louie and EmDad or Dennis from Brooklyn from his blog, trainingandtannins.blogspot.com.

RRT57 - Stretching with Yuri
As co-host, we had Thad, aka "RunnerDude" of ncrunnerdude.blogspot.com and running mentor for the new goal-oriented social site, www.TheCircle.org for its Long Distance Running and Run for Fitness circles and free-lance writer for www.AmateurEndurance.com.
Also co-hosting were Toni, host of her blog, drusy.blogspot.com. and Melisa, host of her blog, irishblue.blogspot.com.
Both Yuri and Thad addressed the difference between dynamic stretching and static stretching and the importance of stretching for injury prevention. Next, we moved on to nutrition. Yuri shared his nutritional approach with the group, which is based on incorporating more raw fruits and vegatables into your diet and consuming foods in their "unprocessed" state. In addition to stretching and nutrition, the group briefly discussed interval training - how it works and why it might help you become a better runner.

RRT56 - Open Mike with Joe Garland
One site reference was the always informative Science of Sport, which recently had some good stuff on the NYC Marathon. There was a bit of talk about NYRR's Mary Wittenberg's response to the "Marathon Plodder" issue. Here's her letter. There was also a reference to Kenny Moore's "The Long Blue Line."
Unfortunately, the recording seems spotty at times, which perhaps can be fixed. The sound seems better on the Talk Shoe site itself:

RRT54: State of the Run Net Community
What is the current state of the Run Net Community of bloggers, podcasters and fellow runners within the world of new and social media? Are we doing all we can to reach out and invite other runners to join us in word and voice? Are we using this media to its full potential to invite sedentary people to rise off the couch of doom and lace up their shoes? What can we do to let the rest of the running community know that we have this platform called “new media” for them to stand up and be good examples to anyone with a computer or iPod? Are we doing enough? (maybe we are!) Can we do more? (if so, what)? Bring your ideas to the Runners Round Table, and let’s talk about the current state of the Run Net Community.
Recorded at a special time: Sunday evening at 5:00 PM ET (22:00 UK Time)

RRT53 - West Coast Ultra - Runners & Tri-athletes
What is the appeal of swimming 2.4 miles, riding a bike for 112 miles and then running a marathon? What drives ultra runners to disappear into the mountains and not return for 20+ hours and really why would you want to run a marathon.
Along with answers to these questions we talk about lessons leaned from mistakes gone by, what’s next on everyone’s agenda and we even have a little off the cutting room floor for you.

Glenn (www.runswithadiaper.blogspot.com), Eddie (www.eddiemarathon.blogspot.com) and Chris Duffy, part of John Ellis' Team Point Two or his "Mind of a
middle-aged marathoner" blog about finding new running routes. Some of the resources mentioned or suggested in the chatroom were:

Using a Garmin 405 and http://connect.garmin.com/signin to design a route and then navigate between waypoints along the run
or on GPS enabled cell phones try Bones in Motion application to see where you are.
www.runtheplanet.com has abandoned the old listings and now is affiliated with www.run.com.
Lots of people use www.buckeyeoutdoors.com public routes or www.mapmyrun.com
Also www.coolrunning.com and www.active.com
US routes on USATF www.usatf.org/routes/
Try Gmaps pedometer to get mileage and elevations
If you're in New York, check out www.westchestertrails.com/
Trail running - Resources
o Maps -Trails Illustrated TOPO Maps by National Geographic
o Guidebooks: Falcon Guides
o Online resources - www.trails.com, www.traillink.com and www.nps.gov
o Park rangers
o Other runners or hikers
and of course GoogleMaps; look for green places, Railroads, Rivers and lakes, trails and ovals...running tracks!
