Kathrine Switzer, at the NYC Marathon, and Jeff Galloway each come on the show to discuss the gift of running. Kathrine discusses how running can help you be creative and to use running for your mind. Jeff Galloway congratulates me on the Philadelphia Marathon and tells me how to maintain my fitness. My friends Meaghan Nana-Sinkam and Becky Kotsifas ask me all about the race as an experience, rather than as a place to try to PR. Serena Marie, RD, shares when to eat full fat and when to choose non fat.

Melanie Curtis, Runar Gundersen, Serena Marie, RD, and I share our experiences of running the NYC Marathon. Jeff Galloway came on and coached me and let’s just say, I did a better job of following his coaching this time. :-) Serena discusses whether or not hot lemon water is good for you and what the research shows.
Runar Gundersen, the unofficial mayor of the New York City Marathon, who is from Norway (which we like to call on the show, No Way Norway), comes back and talks about his 37th straight New York City Marathon.
Serena Marie, RD answers a listener’s question about putting lemon in hot water and whether it's something people should focus on drinking. Serena points out that if you are going to have lemon in your hot water, wait until the water has cooled off a little bit as this allows you to absorb more Vitamin C.
Mike Clarke of the Inaugural Big Beach Marathon to be held in Gulf Shores, Alabama, runs by to share what type of weather you can expect on January 31st, 2016 there. Get this!!!!

Join my “cousin” Dean Karnazes, “ADHD brother” Peter Shankman, “sister from another mister", Serena Marie, RD, and son William Gormley when we celebrate 100 episodes of The Running Lifestyle Show. We’re doing something different here, and I become (or at least try to be) the one interviewed by Dean Karnazes and Peter Shankman. Serena and I talk about how much joy the podcast has brought into our lives and William shares his running story.
Here’s what goes down on Episode 100:
Eileen Smith Dallabrida wrote an article in Delaware Today Magazine's "302 Health" section about the challenges I have had with post partum depression and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). You can read more about seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and some of the resources that are available to help decrease symptoms of depression HERE.
Our next guest is listener of the week, Peter Shankman.
As a listener of the show, you will receive a 25% discount when you head over to www.sportsuds.com and enter “RunLife” in the shopping cart. I can tell you that after running for over six hours at the NYC Marathon, my clothes, umm, didn’t smell too good. There was no fear that the odor would stick around because I knew Sport Suds could take it out. (Which is good because I LOVE my running skirt - so much so that it's been my garment of choice for four out of the last five marathons I've run.)
Mike Clarke is back on the show sharing with us his extensive experience as a race director. The Big Beach Marathon in Gulf Shores, Alabama definitely sounds like the place to be January 31, 2016 to run a full or half marathon. As a listener of The Running Lifestyle Show, you’ve got connections and will receive 15% off your race registration when you input “RUNLIFE" at checkout.
Serena Marie, RD
