224 episodes

A lighthearted conversation by runners about their lives as runners and the issues that are interesting or important to them and guests of the show. TJM is meant to be a companion to you as you run. Think of us as your running partners on days when you just need some friends to get you out on an easy run. The show is composed of 10 segments, one for each mile, and every 10 minutes or so we move on to the next topic, to keep things interesting. Among the hosts' experience are ten 100-mile finishes, dozens of half and full marathons, plenty of 50-milers, and some speedy 5ks and a BQ (and a handful of DNFs).

Your host, Scotty Kummer is an attorney, doberman owner and quite possibly the most painstakingly average runner known to man. Scott has stumbled through numerous plus 4 and 5 hour marathons. He's DNF'ed the 150 mile, 100 mile, 50 mile and marathon distance. Okay, and he is a member of the Order of the Hrimthurs for having completed the Arrowhead 135, the Tuscobia 160 and the Actif Epica 120K in the same calendar year (more people have walked on the moon) as well as finshed 50+ ultramarathons including several 100 mile races. He was once kicked out of an ultra runing group due to allegations of cyber-bullying. He has a habit of offending people by accident while trying to help them. He is a co-founder of the Flatlander Ultrarunners in Chicagoland which has rapidly grown to over 2000 members. He came up with the idea for Ten Junk Miles after becoming frustrated with hearing interview after interview of Scott Jurek and deciding that runners needed more: more discussions of bathroom breaks that went wrong, pacer stories from hell, DNF reports, stories of getting lost on the trail and other related matters.

What have you guys done to me!

I started of running for fitness, after being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabeties, (got the in "remission" no medication) working on Couch 2 5k, found out I like running and looked for some podcasts to learn more about running. Instead what I found is you guys. I don't know how much I have learned but I have laughed and been inspired I have just recently run my first Marathon and am planing more. I am also trying to figure out what to do for my first Ultra (what I can afford and what I can do).

Listening to you guys on my slow runs when I am not running with my group, makes the miles fly by (ok Im Australian why does miles sound more right the kilometers in that saying).

Love the show (both the long runs and the Gang Shows).

Don't ever stop!

This is the first running podcast I listened to, and I'll never need another. I listen while running, driving to work, and today, baking, which is how I came to be writing this review. Before listening to you, I had no desire to ever run 100 miles, but you have inspired me. I only wish we had access to the variety of events you do. I hope that whatever happens in your lives that you find some way to keep going with the podcast as you really make heading out on 20 mile training runs something to look forward to. Thanks!

Long time listener, first time reviewer

I was a latecomer to podcasts but this is still the one I turn to when nothing else feels right. I started listening late but immediately caught up to all past episodes. Now I sit by my phone waiting for the next one! First trail 50k approaching in May (UTA50) and then first timed event in July (Sri Chinmoy 6hr athletics track). Love everything about the show!
