RBG 108 The Last Show

Sadly, I recorded my last Run Barefoot Girl show, just a quickie thanking everyone and talking briefly about what I’ve learned and why this show must come to an end.

Please visit me at www.Caity McCardell.com where I’ve started a radio-based show featuring authors, musicians and actors.

You’ll hear details in this episode about the road I’m on at this point and gratitude for you listeners!

Perhaps an ultra podcast will be created in the future. Until then…

Thank you all!

Vanessa and Nathaniel

Woah!

This one’s a true goodie.

Ultra runner and author Vanessa Runs and her partner, Shacky, have been touring across the US and Canada in their RV with their dog and cat, but once in a while they stop at someone’s home to visit.

They’re currently spending an extended period of time at homesteader, martial arts and yoga instructor, and barefooter (well bare most things) Nathaniel Wolfe’s home in Pennsylvania for the last two weeks. They’ve been posting photos and stories about life at the Wolfstead, and boy was I interested in getting some audio about their visit!

Vanessa’s photo essay documents the first stages of their stay at the Wolfstead.

This episode is about their visit but it also gives a glimpse into their separate lives and the future. I am deeply touched by their insights and perspectives.

Today I speak with ultra runner and photographer Larry Gassan about ultra races in the 80′s, the infamous race Born To Run, orthotics, pool running, his advice on staying injury free, hydration, his ultra race coaching style, and more about the world of ultra running.

RBG 103: Ray Charbonneau’s The 27th Mile

A reminder of the 2014 Boston Marathon:

The 27th Mile, edited by Ray Charbonneau

The 27th Mile, edited by Ray Charbonneau

On April 15, 2013, marathon runner Ray Charbonneau began the Boston Marathon without a number bib. No stranger to this race, Ray was guiding a blind marathoner, each of them holding the ends of a fabric tie.

As they made their way through the crowds and fought for a 4-hour marathon time, they had no idea how this race would change their lives. Listen to Ray’s story of that fateful day, and find out how he is raising money to help the victims of the 2014 Boston Marathon bombing victims with his book, The 27th Mile: Going The Extra Mile to Support the Victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Passing Around The Donation Box

Hi, all!

Just a quick note to say I’ve added a donation option and an Amazon.com link on the right column. See them? Right there… on the right. You can’t miss ‘em! :)

If you have oodles of money and want to give me some of it, there’s a donation button – see it on the right there? PayPal says I have to explain what all the money is going to be spent on if I bring in more than $10,000. Fun!

If you shop on Amazon.com anyway, here’s your chance to support the show!

What do you get for donating or shopping?

I’ll talk about you on the next Run Barefoot Girl episode. I’ll tell the world how great you are! Unless you don’t want me to, and then I’ll just call you “anonymous” and you’ll be this very mysterious person. You can wear a large coat and a brimmed hat.

Otherwise, I’ll shout your name to the world!

Thanks!
