255 EpisodesProduced by Martha HughesWebsite

A podcast with an honest and open look at running, fitness and all things health-related with a bit of humor thrown in.


What's A DFL?

#143 - Sooner or later, most of us will be DFL in a race. So, what is DFL? In running, the term means Dead F**king Last. It used to be the worst thing in the world to be last, but connotations have changed over the years and it's not so bad anymore. In fact, with the rise of Backyard races, it's the best thing! This week, I talk about DFLs and why the Back of the Pack has the most fun and why you shouldn't stress so much over being slower than the elites. 

I also talk about the seemingly endless problems with this year's Marine Corp Marathon in Tales of the Trail and I go over what the show will be with my upcoming surgery. The future is bright!
