QT: Everything You Need/Want to Know About the Pocatello Marathon


As this post/episode is released, I’m a week out from running the Pocatello Marathon in Pocatello, Idaho.

I’m not one for writing a detailed race recap of my performance on race day. So if that’s what you’re looking for…

Yes. Dealing with a sore throat the same week that I’m supposed to speak.

And not to mention recording a few podcasts and a webinar as well.

Needless to say, this was not an ideal situation.

But as the week played on, I started to notice that I wasn’t the only runner battling various cases of the crud this week.

A couple of my athletes, as well as a few of my friends on social media, are also battling a bout of sickness at the end of the summer. Read more
