Gravity@1053′ Episode 28: A New Attitude

In this episode I talk about my renewed attitude to running and about the five miles that I ran on Father’s Day. I even toss in a little bit about the fall and my approach for the Flying Monkey Marathon



So, until then Fa’afetai for listening! Remember: “Relax, Look Ahead”

Gravity@1053′ Episode 23

Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc, are you trying to tell me that my mother has got the hots for me?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Precisely.
Marty McFly: Whoa, this is heavy.
Dr. Emmett Brown: There’s that word again; “heavy”. Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth’s gravitational pull Gravity@1053′ podcast?

Back to the Future

Uh yeah… that’s right, it IS a Gravity@1053′ podcast… I know, I am speechless too.

Actually, in this episode, I talk about the (at least then) upcoming Knoxville Marathon and some of the potential issues that I was having leading up to the race. It was recorded in one run along the Will Skelton Greenway and parts of the Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area, two of my new fave places to run.

Following this episode, will be the audio OF the marathon, along with some commentary (I am imagining) during the run.

Then in Episode 25 will be audio of a post marathon run that I had with podcast extraordinaire, David Peach during a lunchtime run here in Knoxville.

That should carry me into May, which will be the Flying Pig Marathon, where I run my first “large sized” marathon. So we will see how I do there.


I have changed the format just a tad, it’s a new, easier to make Intro, then the “Core” of the show, I’ll have comments, questions, advertisements, etc, then the Outro. So, all in all, it should be easier to slap together ONCE the audio is edited but really, I plan on doing as little editing as possible and this should help keep Gravity on a less than every 6 month submission.


I am also planning on calling The Extra Mile submission line, so you will be able to catch me on that podcast AND I know that I will be on an upcoming Runner’s Roundtable in June.

Inigo Montoya: Offer me money.
Count Rugen: Yes!
Inigo Montoya: Power, too, promise me that.
[He slashes his other cheek]
Count Rugen: All that I have and more. Please…
Inigo Montoya: Offer me anything I ask for.
Count Rugen: Anything you want…
[Rugen knocks Inigo’s sword aside and lunges. But Inigo traps his arm and aims his sword at Rugen’s stomach]
Inigo Montoya Planet3rry: I want my father Monday back, you son of a bitch!

I know that Monday April 13th existed, but I don’t really remember much about it. I was only really coherent for about the last 1 hour of work and from there it was basically just going home for Date Night. And while Date Night did include us being in bed, we were totally asleep. There was no dinner… there was no movie, there was nothing. Next thing I knew it was 5am on Tuesday and I was ready to look at the finances.

So, I am scratching my head wondering what I am going to do and now I have more stuff to do today, that I should have done yesterday and I have to plack it in today… which is filling up fast!

Over the weekend, I did not run at all. I had wanted to make last week, the last tough week of training before I started tapering here in the next few days. Now, I have to cram an extra long run in here somewhere and make do. I think what I will do is something that I did LAST year, but I have forgotten about until now… the 2-Fer! That’s right. I think today, I will do a 5 mile at lunch and then a 10 miler after work. I need the extra time tonight with the many errands I have to run, but I HAVE to get the mileage in! I realized that today that I probably have not trained properly to shoot for a sub-4hr marathon given my training to date. I should look back and see what I have run (hence the need for the Trusty Rusty Running Log) and perhaps a sub 4 isn’t really in the cards (unless the planets are aligned and Mercury isn’t in Retrograde) but a PR might be something that I could touch (take that MC Hammer)… 4:06 or so.

AND… there is a NEW episode of Gravity@1053′ just about finished! I PROMISE! I am starting to catch back up on podcasts, but still way back in last year and I have the compulsion to listen to each one, in order, just ANOTHER reason for some long runs. Also, look for a new feature on Planet3rry.com! I am going to roll that out in the next couple of days or maybe hours… let’s see how motivated I can be.

Inigo Montoya Planet3rry: Is very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it’s over, I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.
Westley: Have you ever considered piracy? You’d make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts.

I’m bringing this fashion back by force

I Down with the DRCDespite the fact that I am MONTHS… no YEARS behind on my podcasts, I received a package from Podmaster Matt over at the DUMP RUNNERS CLUB podcast. For some of his hippest, coolest and stylish listeners, he send out custom made headbands! So today, as I was bustin’ up the hills over at Lakeshore Greenway, I styled and profiled the DRC on my forehead. It worked Great! To get your headband, send $29.95 to Matt over at DRC and if you act now, he’ll send you the second one for twice the price! That’s right TWO headbands for $89.85! What a DEAL!

Gravity@1053′ podcast is going to be coming back to a RSS feed near you. I need to make some recordings for future episodes, as I have changed the format of the podcast, to make it just a tad easier to get out then once every 10 months. Plus, I want to have an ASD Athletes podcast as well, which will need to be a little more polished and presentable, then what I am spewing out now.

I also have the audio from my Fun Run at the Knoxville Marathon 21 Miler on March 29th. Plus, there is audio that I have from Podcaster Extraordinaire and Missionary Guru, David Peach, where I talk a little bit about how I scored my first DNF in the marathon category.

Oh, and the best thing about running with the Dump Runners Club Headband today, I passed by a local Water Treatment Facility (one of qualifying places for membership to the DRC*) 3x in my run!

About Next Weekend

Today’s run was a practice run of the last 6.5 miles of the Knoxville Marathon in which I am going to be (WAIT, let me go check… 7 Days Out and STILL 4:45 pacer) the pacer for the 4:45 finish group. It has been 3 years since I ran the race and while I usually run on many parts of the Marathon course, I still wanted the practice. Kinda like a Dress-Rehearsal… except, no pace group, no course monitors, no water stations, no crowd support, no course support and bringing DARKNESS and ChAOs… no volunteers.

It felt great, I ran the entire way, non-stop and with ease. I need to see what my pace was, but it was in the 9-10min range. I’ll have 2-3 more runs in this quasi-Taper before the marathon. I did decide on a few things…

  1. I am going to record the entire marathon: I’ll use it for an episode of Gravity@1053 and I will use it as my first episode for my, yet untitled, ASD Athletes podcast.
  2. I will twitter during the marathon, maybe 3 or 4 times depending on how I can manage it. I am incredibly new at Twitter even though it’s been around forever (in techonology years)… We have a twitter set up for ASD Athletes, so I will use that one. @ASDAthletes
  3. I am going to call the phoneline for The Extra Mile podcast and send in a recording while running of my Knoxville Marathon experience. If you are a podcaster and you would like me to call in and leave a comment for you use on your podcast. Please let me know what the number is and I will “put it on the list”. Use the Contact Me in the Top Menu Bar.

Also in the upcoming week, look for the GUESS MY TIME, WIN CRAP contest for the Knoxville Marathon. I will have to change the rules a little (and I can, because I am the supreme universe ruler of the GUESS MY TIME, WIN CRAP contests) since my time SHOULD be 4:45:00 as a result of my Volunteer Position of being a Pacer. I am thinking that we are going to have some sort of “target” or “percent” type contest. I have to think about. I also have to find some crap to give away too… more on that in a day or two.

Holy Audiophiles Batman, It’s Gravity@1053!

That’s right peeps, the 22nd episode of Gravity@1053′ Running Podcast has hit The Web! I know! WTF!

So this Episode is part of my running of the World Wide Festival of Races Worldwide Half Marathon!

Stuff that I talk about during this episode:

1) Runner’s Dilemma of Pooping

2) Some things that I have learn this training season in regards to pooping on the run

3) Mid October Update of my Training for the Rutledge Marathon (11-15-08) and Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon (11-23-08)

4) My Pacing and the State of the Greenway at 3rd Creek


Note: there might be small pauses in the audio, those were my triggers to add some beeping or other sound effects to indicate transition between subjects (edits). I didn’t remember about them until AFTER I exported to MP3 format and well, I wasn’t going to go back and try to fix it at that point.

Part 1 was a little easier to edit and get posted. Part 2 should be uploaded (hopefully) early next week and I “Want” to do a 3 part series on my 2 Marathons… one before the 1st one, one between the two and a recap episode.

Gravity@1053 Episode 21

Here’s the latest, but not the greatest episode of Gravity@1053′, if you don’t already subscribe with a podcatcher/media player (e.g. iTunes, Media Monkey, Juice, etc).

In this episode, I am unveiling my 2008 Fall Marathon Selection. However, it will be modified slightly, so this ended up being a short episode because of that. Didn’t want to ramble on and on about the marathon when it was going to change some. So here is the episode. I am going to post the “update” on my fall marathon next week.

Gravity@1053′ Episode20: Expo 10k

I know! I Know! This is like the 3rd podcast and it hasn’t taken 6 months. What’s even freakier is that I have audio for the next episode too! Of course, after that I got nothing. HA! but there will be something. I think I have gotten excited by listening to all the new podcasts. I am right now in a Confessions marathon. I have been capturing the feeds of the new running podcasts that I hear about.

This episode is the audio accompaniment to the Expo 10k Race Report. It goes through volunteering pre-race and my running (or attempt) of the race. You’ll have to let me know what you think of my fall.
