Another longer than usual running podcast. There’s a major race in my neck of the woods this weekend. The Quebec City Marathon is this Sunday and I go over my experience with the race from last year. I also get into a preview of La Valse des Coureurs; a race that I’m planning on running on Sunday. It’ll be my first race since May. Additionally on the podcast, I talk about some of the great running gear sales that are taking place this weekend. There are some really great deals out there. Download the podcast by clicking the link up top and continue reading the rest of the post to check out the entire race schedule for the Quebec-Toronto corridor as well as upstate New York and Vermont.

Unfortunately, the podcast did not go up on time again. I had to reformat my laptop and it took a bit of time to get it back up and running. I recorded the podcast last night but was too tired to finish editing it so I had the plan to work on it early this morning. When I started working on it, the editor crashed and I thought I had lost all the work. Luckily, nothing was lost and I was able to finish editing it. I did notice some sound issues which I will hopefully have fixed in time for tomorrow’s Movie Podcast.

Also, here’s the link to my friend Travis Knight’s Indiegogo campaign that I mentioned on the podcast.
