    Be Thankful for Running Every Day!

    Be Thankful for Running Every Day!

    #150 - Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving. And with Thanksgiving, we are reminded by nearly every running magazine and website why we should be thankful for running. But why do we see these just one day a year? I propose that we should be thankful every day of the year for our favorite sport! I give you lots of reasons to be thankful for running on a daily basis. I'm sure you can think of some of your own! 

    I also talk a bit about my first walked 5k since my surgery!

    Odds & Ends

    Odds & Ends

    #147 - After nearly three years, I figured it was time for an episode that included a few little subjects. None of these have enough substance to stand in an episode on their own, so I grouped them together in what will be the first Odds & Ends episode. This one includes runners who look for medical advice from non-medical people online, comparing ourselves to others, the lack of free race coverage online, and a  couple others. If there is a subject you would like to see talked about on the show, please contact me. 

    All information talked about today, can be found on the website at: www.martharunstheworld.com if you want to contact me regarding this week's episode, or if you want to send me a race report, please email me at: martharunstheworld@gmail.com

    Haunted Running Trails - Yosemite!

    Haunted Running Trails - Yosemite!

    #145 - In this year's Haunted Running Trails Halloween episode, I focus specifically on Yosemite. There's plenty of haunted tales and legends to fill up an entire show! Yosemite is an incredible place to visit. It's the perfect place to get away from the city, to camp, to hike, trail run and just to explore the majesty of nature. 

    But there is lots of history there as well. The Miwok Native Americans have tales I share, as well as other stories that have been passed along through the ages. 

    All the links for for the show are on the website: www.martharunstheworld.com if you have any questions or want to send me a race report, please do! Tales on the Trail will return next week! Send your stories to: martharunstheworld@gmail.com
