MStefano Running is a group of friends that went outside their comfort zone in 2012 and started training to run in fun runs as well as mud runs and other events. We urge others to get off the couch and go for a run or even a walk. Exercise is great for the mind and body. We hope you enjoy listening to our adventures and consider trying one for yourself.

    203. FIT Challenge, Newbsanity, and More with Meg Julian!

    We weren't able to go and cover FIT Challenge in person due to it being out of state (where we can't go because of COVID) but we did get to have the women's winner Meg Julian on the show!
    Meg is one of our favorite athletes in the Northeast, she is pretty consistent as a podium threat, proud Newbsanity member, and always great when we get to chat with her.

    202. Carlo Piscitello's Tough Mudder Origin Story, Apology for Devil's Taint, and Plans for 2021!

    202. Carlo Piscitello's Tough Mudder Origin Story, Apology for Devil's Taint, and Plans for 2021!

    With Virtual World's Toughest Mudder happening last weekend we wanted to have someone from the event on to talk about it.  Mike and Katelyn also had an unrelated talk about how they never really had the chance to actually talk with one of the event Zoom hosts Carlo Piscitello despite being in a group message with him for the past year.
    It was a slight pivot but we were super excited to finally have Carlo on.  He is every bit as friendly and funny as you would expect and he warned us that he can be a bit chatty but that was exactly what we wanted!

    200. Episode 200 Live Q&A with a Podcast Shoutout Compilation!

    200. Episode 200 Live Q&A with a Podcast Shoutout Compilation!

    We hit episode 200 without missing a single weekend!  We have put a mind blowing amount of hours into this show and felt that we should celebrate it in the same way that we did for episode 100 back on October 2nd 2018, by doing it live!
    Live content is very different from how we usually record so the setup was a bit distracting for us.  We didn't edit the episode to keep the live feeling while listening, but don't take this as a sign of laziness because the post credit content took 40-50 hours to put together!
    We took almost every time that the show, Katelyn, or Mike got a shoutout in the many other OCR podcasts that we listen to and compiled them into a (longer than expected) compilation.  This wasn't meant to be an ego boosting compilation (although Mike could use that at times) but just a way to say that if we are talked about this much, then we must be doing something right for the OCR community!
    Hopefully we can continue to grow our show as well as the sport of OCR and we will see you all again on October 2nd 2022 for episode 300!

    199. History of OCRWC with Adrian Bijanada!

    We all know that OCRWC in Stratton, VT was cancelled this year.  I, like many many others was upset by this but figured that we could celebrate OCRWC and all the work that Adrian and his team do in a different way!
    I reached out to Adrian Bijanada to come on the show so we could discuss his athletic background, the history of OCRWC, highlights over the years, as well as important lessons that he has learned from past events!

Great OCR/Running Podcast

Always relatable and down to earth podcast duo with a wide range of topics!

Kenny West

Great listening!! Thank you very much for this podcast. No matter what level you are at with your running/OCR you can always learn something. The two of you do a Fantastic job! I always get excited every time a new episode comes out. Keep up the great work. Hope to meet you both one day soon. Also thanks for not talking about politics. I don’t think most people care about my beliefs but I also don’t like when other people try to shove their beliefs down my throat. Love & appreciate you both. Take care.
