Reflections from Another 5k Season

Well I’m glad that’s over.

Another 5k season is thankfully winding to a close, and I for one, couldn’t be happier.

I know that some people love the 5k, but it’s easily my least favorite race distance. Maybe it makes me sound like a wuss, but the 5k is really nothing but pain and agony. A not quite sprint, but nowhere near comfortable, 20ish minute run.

No thanks. Give me 26.2 miles instead of those nauseating 3.1 any day of the week.

Trying to Get Lost

This past weekend, I was in Dallas for the first ever podcasting-only conference.

I had a blast at Podcast Movement, and was able to connect with all kinds of podcasters from a variety of different shows. I even met a lady that MIGHT join me on the Diz Runs With podcast in the near future. But I learned a lot about the business side of podcasting, did some amazing networking, and really made some great friends from around the country that I’ll hopefully be able to visit with when I go run a marathon in their state.

I could go on and on about how great the convention was, but I don’t want to come across as too much of a podcasting nerd, though if the shoe fits… Read more
