I tried to listen to running podcast but they are nowhere near as entertaining as comedy podcasts. However if there is an interesting runner being interviewed then I’ll listen to them. For example the Geeks in Running Shoes recently talked to Anton Krupicka. The man is one of those athletic outliers that comes by once a generation.
Anton tried to briefly answer the question why you run but he says it’s something you can’t really describe. I kind of agree with this statement. Another interesting thing he said is to find out what makes you want to run and then pursue that. That way you are not running as an exercise or to get a certain mileage, rather you’re running for what makes you happy.
