Rank #1: An Interview With Melanie Owen About Her Upcoming Badwater 135 - Episode 57

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode:

 

Melanie Owen had a goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Frustrated by continually coming up just short, she wondered if she could run longer distances. She not only discovered she could run over a 100 miles at a time, she discovered she was pretty good at it. Now, she's one of only 33 women who will be lining up to run this year's prestigious ultra marathon, The Badwater 135. Melanie talks about her friend and coach Harvey Lewis, a previous Badwater champion, and how Harvey has helped her get ready for her own Badwater experience. 

Melanie talks about the inspiration her dad has been in her life. She talks about one day conquering that Boston Marathon goal. And much more in our conversation. 

Introduction and closing song: One Flame to Burn (Prospect 7)

Rank #2: Staunton Police Officer and 100 Mile Man Erick Kuhlmann - Episode 56

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

What you'll hear on this episode: 

Sasha Wolff battles a mental illness. She's discovered running is a strong ally in that battle. As she searched the internet to find a group of runners that rallied to promote their own mental health or that of others, she couldn't find one.

Rank #4: Ultra Runner Stacy Saunders Refused To Let Three Strikes Take Her Out_Episode 73

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode: 

I had no idea at the time, but back in 2015, at a Run the Bluegrass Half Marathon pre-race dinner, Stacy Saunders and I were in the same barn listening to an inspirational talk. The speaker, Harvey Lewis, challenged everyone to write something down they wanted to accomplish that year. I didn't write anything. But Stacy, I've since learned, wrote down that she wanted to run 100 miles.Well, here we are, over 3 years later, and I have the pleasure to share a conversation I had with Stacy shortly after she recently achieved that 100 mile goal. It's been a journey filled with ups and downs. Her story is one that brings to life the opportunities that come not just from chasing a dream, but often from failing at it. I've hinted - or maybe outright stated - I'm intrigued by the prospects of running 100 miles. This conversation did nothing to discourage that thinking. I hope it will encourage you to dare greatly - and if it's the fear of failure standing in your way - that you'll stomp out that fear once and for all.

Rank #5: The Oxbow Ultra 2018 Recap_Episode 72

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode: Earlier this year I attempted my first ultra marathon. I went down to Georgia and tackled the 35-mile Georgia Jewel. For many reasons I came up short. You can listen to a recap of that race here: Georgia Jewel Recap

To find some redemption before rolling into 2019, I sought out another ultra opportunity. I ultimately found that opportunity in St. Paul, Virginia at the Oxbow Ultra Marathon. 

Parts of this quest turned out well, but I ultimately came up short on my goal to run 35 miles. One thing I've learned in running, though, is there are always lessons to be learned. In success and in coming up short, running is always telling me something about myself. I share some of those lessons in this episode.

Rank #6: An Interview with Ultra Runner and Soles 4 Souls CEO Buddy Teaster - Episode 71

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode. 

I recently had a chance to sit down with Sole for Souls CEO, Buddy Teaster. We talked a lot about ultra running, mainly Buddy's recent Grindstone 100 run, a race he ran after just 3 training runs in the year leading up to it. We talked about the Hard Rock Ultra - why Buddy loves that race enough to run a 100 mile race like the Grindstone with limited preparation, just to qualify for a lottery to get in the Hard Rock. 

But we spent most of our time talking about Buddy's true passion. Soles 4 Souls and wearing out poverty. 

I encourage you to pick up Buddy's book, Shoestrings, here: order shoestrings

I encourage you to check out the website for Soles4Souls 

Buddy Teaster talks to me about taking us from a place of mere giving to a place of believing we can truly wear out poverty. After talking to him, I'm a believer. I hope you'll listen to my conversation. I pray you'll be moved to a place of believing that as well.

What you'll hear on this episode. 

My friend Donna Shagena joined me on this TwoTim47.com journey when it began. So today I'm happy to share her journey. Her journey to a first marathon. On this episode we'll trace the beginning of her running journey from a young girl thinking she weighed too much and wanted to run to lose weight - to the woman she is today, chasing down a goal that was inspired by so many others. Donna talks about her falling in love with running after running the Victory Junction Run to Victory 5k, where she got to shake Kyle Petty's hand at the finish line. She talks about the impact the Megsmiles Supporters Facebook family has had on her life. She talks about how running has changed who she is. And oh - there may be some talk about a cartwheel at the finish line of her upcoming first marathon - the finish line of the Richmond Marathon on November 10, 2018.

Rank #9: An Interview with Eddie Brown and Giving Words - The Purpose Behind the Georgia Jewel - Episode 64

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode:

When I first reached out to Kate Fletcher, it was because she'd run 100 miles. Since signing up for the Georgia Jewel I'd become more fascinated by longer running distances. I'd begun imagining just how far I really could run. But after interviewing Kate (listen here) I was much more captivated by her heart than by her running. My friend Eddie Brown was captivated by both. He reached out to me shortly after my interview with Kate and said he'd taken up running. It had been years since he hit the road, but he was back at it. He also told me about his non-profit, Giving Words. Giving words supports single moms in central Virginia. He went on to tell me that Kate is a single mom and he'd discovered she could use some help. I've since learned more about Eddie and Giving Words and Kate's needs. It's struck me how in my interview with Kate all you heard was a heart for giving others. Nowhere in her did you hear a need for others to give to her. But Eddie said he wanted Giving Words to not only help Kate, but to honor her heart for giving to others. Eddie said he wanted to give back. Why does that sound familiar? Give back? Isn't that what Jenny Baker, Georgia Jewel race director, said the Georgia Jewel is all about - giving back? She did. So that's what I intend to do with this race. I want to help Eddie give back to Kate. I also want to honor Jenny's vision for the Georgia Jewel. When I cross the finish line, when I run my longest distance ever, when I check "ultra marathon" off my bucket list, I don't want that to be the end of this Georgia Jewel running story. I want that story to live one. What better way to make that happen than helping Eddie and Giving Words help Kate, and help breathe life into the lives of some single moms just looking for a break. Looking for their own finish line in life. I encourage you to listen to my conversation with Eddie. Since I'm running the 35 mile Georgia Jewel, I'm looking for as many people as possible to help me give back with a $35 contribution to Giving Words. A contribution that will go directly to helping them help Kate.

Rank #10: An Interview With Garth Harris - From 400 Pounds to Ultra Marathoner - Episode 62

Podcast cover
Read more
I recently came across a story about a man, who at 400 pounds, decided he wanted to run a marathon. Sure, Garth Harris' journey is a weight loss journey, it's a journey to better health, but listen to his story and you'll hear about a man who used running to give new life to his entire family. When we make a new year's resolution, and then we follow through on our thoughts and words, we never know how much our decisions will impact those around us. 

One more time, I've interviewed a runner who reveals running is much more than a physical journey. It's a journey to deeper and more meaningful relationships. Running opens doors within us to reveal strength we never knew we had. This is the story of Garth Harris.

Rank #11: An Interview with Gregory Byerline - From Couch to Road to Trail - Episode 61

Podcast cover
Read more

What you'll hear on this episode:

In preparing to run my first ultra marathon, the September 22nd 35 mile Georgia Jewel, I met Gregory Byerline. He had interviewed Georgia Jewel race directors Jenny and Franklin Baker on his podcast - The Collected ClanAs I got to know Gregory I realized we have a lot in common. We are both older dads - I'm actually and older older dad than Gregory, so I won't drag him completely into my company - but we both started this dad gig late. It's driven us to have a mutual desire to stay fit and healthy and be there for our kids. We also share a belief we can use our running journeys to shape the character of our kids.Gregory talks about falling in love with the trails. He told me sometimes it's nice to escape the masses of humanity that often overwhelm our ability to think and hear and imagine. Gregory is a photographer, so the trails often spark his creative side. We spend time talking about the trail community - full of free thinkers and creatives - and why the trails appeal to this group. We talk about the vast distances between trail running and road racing, and how the training is different. 

We even talk about old church hymns - and how they connect to running. Yes, we were able to make that connection. 

One of my favorite parts of the conversation was exploring Gregory's love for running under the full moon once each month. It's a love that inspired him to found The Moonshine Runner's Society. He actually has me interested in tackling my own moonlight miles. I hope you enjoy this conversation with my friend Gregory Byerline.

Podcast cover

What you'll hear on this episode:

 

Jenny Baker returns to the program for the 3rd time. Only this time she takes over the microphone and interviews me. We take a deep dive into how we both connect our running to our faith. Jenny asks point blank: do you think God cares about your running? And what about when you come up short in running, when you fail, how does God shine through running then? We talk about balancing family in a sport that can be time consuming. And oh, we talk about pooping - that's right, when Jenny takes the microphone you never know where things are going to go. 

Jenny is the race director of The Georgia Jewel. She's the sole reason I'll be headed to Georgia in less than 8 weeks to run my first trail race - my first ultra marathon. Her faith and spirit are contagious. She draws you in. You'll get to hear plenty about my faith and running journeys here, but I'm grateful so much of Jenny pours out in this conversation as well. 

Jenny is the co-author of War on Normal.

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.
