Chicago Marathon training begins the week of June 6! Tim joins to discuss what participants can expect from CARA’s summer marathon training program, advice for first-timers as well as seasoned marathoners, and his own running and marathon experiences.
Today’s episode comes from “down under” with Chicago-Area native, Dale Erdmier, currently living in the the Sydney, Australia. As a runner, running coach, personal trainer, and yoga instructor, Dale is one-stop-shopping for her clients. We talked about the Chicago Area Runners Association, her move to Australia, life and running in Sydney, and getting married during the pandemic.

There have been a couple running milestones I missed commemorating here because I haven’t been as prolific this year as I’ve been in the past. The first was my 25th Runiversary. That is, the 25th Anniversary of the day I started running which passed unceremoniously on March 4th. The second is Global Running Day which happens each year on the 1st Wednesday in June. So, yesterday.
During the month of May last year I was essentially working four part-time jobs. Managing that kind of a schedule doesn’t work for me. It makes me irritable. I found having that much (unrelated) responsibility competing for my attention, and working such an inconsistent schedule, was more than I could manage. The income I was able to cobble together didn’t cut it either.
