    Mark Remy is a runner and writer based in Portland, Oregon. He has been a columnist and writer at Runner’s World since 2007. Mark has been running since 1994 and has run 27 marathons, including Boston eight times.
    In 2015, Mark launched Dumb Runner, which is a website for runners who enjoy laughter and pie (his words!). Most of the online advice for beginner runners make running too complicated. Dumb Runner, well, "dumbs" everything down because Mark believes running should be simple.
    If that wasn’t enough, Mark has also written four books on running and one training journal. Keep reading because I am giving away a copy of each to one lucky person.
    I highly recommend you check out Mark’s writing. Here a few articles/posts that I recommend you start with:
    The Only 3 Things You Need to Know to Begin Running (Really)
    Training for Runners: FAQ
    5 Stretches You Should Never Do
    Mark’s Newsletter– Entertaining and educational. Sign up!

    In this episode we talk about:
    How running has impacted Mark’s life. The shower beer (try it). Stretching – was it only cool in 1981? The only 3 things you need to know to begin running (Really) How to pick a training plan.
