Well, maybe not everything. But in this episode, Jack invites a longtime friend, former running competitor, and budding cardiovascular expert for an episode (our longest yet) about running: Why people do it, whether it’s bad for you, how a non-runner would get into it, etc.

    I remember the first time I saw someone running for the sake of it along side the road in the late 60’s. Outside of a track meet, the only time we saw someone running deliberately in our midwest rural area was when they were in trouble and my folks stopped the car to ask them if they were OK or if they needed help. Running? That’s crazy!

    I ran competitively in high school and college and still run 5 days a week but just for the pure enjoyment that it brings me. People in my neighborhood will ask me things about my run like distance run, mile splits, etc. and I really have no idea. The only time I care about time is if my wife gives me a deadline to get back and watch my kids and I have to run a route where I know on average how long it will take.
