7 public marathons in seven days on seven continents + 50 public marathons in every US state in less than a year? Possible Guiness record setter? Ultra-distance runner? Ironman triathlete/coach? Successful kicker of a decades-long nicotine addiction? Motivational speaker? All in a day’s work for Dave Jones of Eternal Endurance with whom we had the pleasure of speaking for the site’s first podcast. The audio quality on our side of the recorded call was total crap unfortunately, and there were many lessons learned for podcasting, but we won’t let that stop the inspiration of Dave coming through loud and clear. Word of caution – if you’ve been making any excuses about why you “can’t” lately, and want to keep using those excuses, don’t listen to this.
As We Ran
Song recommendation for the morning:
“As We Ran” by The National Parks was a great find on Spotify this morning that gave some positive inspiration on a cold, rainy hike. Check it out!
If you went through an alt/punk phase back in the late eighties/early-nineties, we highly recommend a revisit to the fIREHOSE album Ragin, Full-On. This is perfectly matched with a 45′ trainer or treadmill session, (hit an interval during “Brave Capitan,” it’s awesome) and the album naturally winds down in tempo and intensity as the cool down part of your workout begins. Pretty sweet. Great blast from the past!
