August 1st 2014 podcast and update

Seems like just yesterday I posted an update but it looks like July 14th so 2 weeks. Crazy how time goes by so fast.

I included a photo of Kansas City Union station. Such a beautiful place. The photo doesn’t do it justice as the room is huge. We picked up our Son Daniel from the Amtrak station there this past week end. He rode the train over from St. Louis. He wasn’t too impressed but it was better than driving for him on this occasion.

I’ve also included a copy of my latest running podcast. It’s still windy but not as bad as some of the others. I still need to find a good wind resistant mic.

2nd Podcast posted

I have posted another podcast. This is my 2nd although I lost a couple that I’m still looking for. “The Lost Episodes”.

Anyway this one isn’t too good I’m thinking. It seems to have a lot of wind noise which is odd because it wasn’t that windy. Maybe a new microphone is in order I’m afraid. Well it’s a work in progress.  On this one I ramble on about nothing or course and also touch on the points and miles collecting hobby that I have.

Just click to save or right click to save. Then click “file” and “Add to library” in iTunes to get it so you can add it to your iPod. Not sure how to do this on iPad. Most likely you can just click to listen on a mobile phone. 

Quick update and 1st podcasting attempt

So I’ve been busy moving from Wentzville Missouri to Wellsville Kansas lately. I’m sorry for the gap in posting lately. I’ve also been working on doing a new personal running podcast. My goal is to use it to stay in touch with my friend Brad mostly as he is preparing to move overseas. So I will aim my comments at him and try to keep it from getting too personal of course. Well maybe a little heckling of him just to keep him in account.

Anyway here is the link to my dropbox file for this first podcast.

If you want to put this on your ipod just save the file to your computer or where ever. You should be able to right click to “save as” or just click it to go to the file. Open iTunes. Once in iTunes click on “File” then on “Add File to Library” then browse to the file and click Open or OK for iTunes to add it. From there you can drag it into your iPhone or iPod, etc. like normal.

Running on November 5th vs January 6th

I enjoy running in warm weather the most. Don’t get me wrong 50f degrees in light wind overcast is about as  perfect as it gets but nothing is as good as running along the beach or along a trail in warm weather. Racing is a bit different of course. 45 degrees with a slight wind and low humidity is very good for a marathon. Every runner has a perfect condition for them. Unfortunately unless you live in some place like San Diego you don’t get many perfect running days per year. I had a very good run on November 5th around our neighborhood. Slightly rainy Fall day with leaves on a trailer near my home. A little cooler than I like but still a very nice Fall day in a slight mist. I contrast that with our -6 degree blizzard like conditions with 12 inches of blowing down my street today and I miss it. I was confined to my treadmill in the basement, it’s like torture. Not even my favorite podcast could overcome it for long.  Check him out over at Nigel Runner http://nigelrunner.blogspot.com/.

The deer are rather tame in our neighborhood, even during deer hunting season here in Missouri.
