Radiolab: Limits – Fantastic Podcast Episode about Endurance Athletes

I’m a sucker for a good endurance sports story, and more often than not, when it involves people demonstrating incredible perseverance, I tend to get a bit emotional (think NOVA Marathon Challenge or Spirit of the Marathon).

RP#16: Barefoot and Minimalist Running: A Word of Caution

Episode #16 of the Runblogger Podcast covers some of my concerns about the recent barefoot and minimalist (e.g., Vibram Fivefingers) vs. typically shod running debate, and provide a word of caution about jumping into barefoot/minimalist running too quickly. Ultimately, the point I’m trying to make here is that the fact that we all are running […]

RP#15: Running Science – VO2max, Running Economy, Lactate Threshold

In this episode I discuss the science behind three topics that are highly relevant to your running performance – VO2max, Running Economy, and Lactate Threshold.

This is the first in what I hope will be an informative and helpful series of posts on starting a running blog and/or podcast. As a relative newcomer to both (I’ve been doing this blog for just over a year, the podcast for a few months), I’ve been through a lot of the challenges involved […]

Review of Ipod Nano 5th Generation: Great Tool for Podcasting and Shooting Videos on the Run

Last Christmas Santa Claus fulfilled my major gift request by bringing me a new 5th generation Ipod Nano to replace my old 2nd generation model. My Nano 2G had served me well for over two years, but it suffered a touchpad malfunction from an excess of sweat damage due to 1500+ miles of use on […]

On Blogging and Podcasting – Send Me Questions!

Yesterday I participated in a discussion forum during the final meeting of a class series on social media at the Nacky Loeb School of Communications in Manchester, NH (thanks to @TeresaKRobinson for inviting me! – check out her running blog). After leaving, I thought about how much I would have benefited from having taken such […]

Exercise Science Podcast

Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology, Biology of Sports and Exercise – regardless of what you call it, this podcast is all about the relationship between exercise and the human body. Mostly, it consists of lectures given in my Biology of Sports and Exercise Class at Saint Anselm College, but I may add article commentary, student content, […]
