Not much to talk about on the podcast as while there are a handful of races in the area, they all take place in part with New Year celebrations. I spent quite a bit of time on the podcast talking about a few really good articles from the latest issue of the Running Times. Also, here’s a link to the Running Room promotion I mentioned on the podcast.

Not much to talk about when it comes to running other than the upcoming season. There are a bunch of “Resolution Runs” put on by the Running Room as well as some other New Year’s-themed races in and around the area. I also say some things about winter training that might be helpful to some.

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.

A bit longer running podcast than normal. I go quite a bit into the benefits of pacing properly and doing smaller races (5K and 10K) to prepare oneself mentally for larger races (half and full marathons). I also go over the races for this weekend. For the full list and links to the registration pages for each race, continue reading past the break.

I apologize tor the podcast not going up in time. I don’t know if it’s due to overtraining or the amount of writing I’ve been doing this past week (or both) but I was completely exhausted the last couple of days. Therefore a couple of races may have actually happened by the time this post goes up. I will make sure the podcast goes up on Wednesday like normal next week. Also, for those waiting for it, the Movie Newsletter will be up tomorrow evening. The Video Game Podcast will be up later tonight.

On today’s podcast, I start talking quite a bit about the benefits of cross-training because of an article from iRun Magazine about the benefit of upper-body training. I also give my personal insight on two of the biggest races this weekend in Quebec: the Mont-Tremblant Half Marathon and the Endruance 5K. Keep reading for the entire list of races in the Quebec City-Toronto corridor this weekend.

The website returns with a Weekly Running Podcast. Not much to talk about as there’s only five races this weekend between within reasonable driving distance of Montreal. The major one this weekend is Circuit Endurance’s race in Ste. Anne de Bellevue. It’s one of my races to run and makes for a great day in a beautiful part of Montreal. I highly suggest you try this race out this weekend (as long as it doesn’t rain). Also on the podcast are some of my plans for the future of the podcast as well as a few details about some specials some retailers who sell running gear are offering.

The website awakens from it’s slumber and starting things off from hibernation is the Weekly Running Podcast. I offer up details about registration for the Ottawa Marathon and the Circuit Endurance as well as a few races coming up over the next two weeks (because there are a few people who think running in arctic temperatures is a grand idea).
