210 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.

Greatest review in the world

This is not the greatest review in the world, no. This is just a tribute. I couldn’t remember the greatest review in the world, no, no. This is a tribute.

Most entertaining part of my run

I just discovered this podcast a few months ago when I signed up for the Badger trail run and found out it’s put on by these guys. I didn’t know anything about it and the first time I listened couldn’t figure it out. Halfway through the first episode I was hooked. I run alone most of the time and this is the best companion podcast there is. It’s original, funny and engaging. Love the format and the hosts. I am now going back through the old episodes. It’s amazing how relevant even the first episodes still feel. Episode 2 is my favorite so glad I found it.

Three thumbs up

I have to change my review. I was the “overall, worth it” guy. Just did my first 50k and these guys gave me the confidence to do it. Not only that, but half way through I was hurting. I turned off the audiobook and music I had been listening to and searched to see if they had a new episode. They did and got me through the next 2.5 hours with an energy boost. Having listening to this podcast for a few months now, once you know the personalities, and start to get into the little bubble of inside jokes, they are truly my favorite running partners. I also realized that I have to pony up a couple bucks a month now to help support the podcast since they are helping me on my journey of ultra running. Thanks gang, please keep it up.
