We interviewed Ed about his world records, training, and philosophy of life on MTA podcast episode 195. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed’s family. He was truly an inspiration to the entire running world!
Meet up with Angie and Trevor and other MTA runners at the Starbucks near the Brandenburg Gate on the Saturday before the Berlin Marathon!
- Date: September 24th (the day before the marathon)
- Location: Starbucks Coffee at Pariser Platz 4A, 10117 Berlin, Germany
- Time: 2:00 pm local time
This Starbucks is close to the Brandenburg Gate and the start/finish area of the marathon so we might grab a drink and walk around the plaza as a group. Link to the Facebook Event. Please let us know if you plan to attend.
You can hear us on episode #15 of The Runner’s World Show talking with host David Willey about the marathon as a “beautiful struggle” (Angie’s words), our running stories, and tips for beginning marathoners.
Big thanks to David and his team who are doing great as new podcasters!
We will be podcasting and taking care of business from the road inbetween running, hiking, and eating Mexican food.

They are among the millions of Americans who have succumbed to cancer. Each of my aforementioned friends was taken way too soon. Of those three, only Bob would live long enough to ever meet his grandchildren. The others passed well before what we would consider middle age.
Those whose lives have been ravaged by cancer were on my mind a few Saturdays ago as I volunteered at The Purdue Challenge, a 5K run-walk which benefits cancer research at the university. Continue Reading →

We just finished the Des Moines Marathon & Half Marathon in the great mid-western state of Iowa.
Grant is now running on Streets of Gold and a scholarship for New Covenant School in Arlington, Massachusetts (where he would have been a first-grader) has been established in his name.
The Grant Brown Scholarship is in place to help those students and their families who may be distracted by financial worry to focus more on learning, serving and building integrity.
Virtual 5k this Saturday Continue Reading →
