Bring on the cooler weather! It’s what all runners look forward to at summer’s end. There’s just something about a chill in the air, not to mention the changing colors, that make autumn running so enjoyable. It’s also prime racing season in the coming weeks, and on the show Heather is joined by MRG podcast regulars Kelly Yauk and Pam Carrigan to share their stories of logging miles and crossing finish lines this time of year.

The trio talk quite a bit about marathons and half marathons. Pam is fresh off her FIRST marathon — she ran the Marquette Marathon in Marquette, along the shores of Lake Superior this Labor Day weekend — and Kelly and Heather ask her all about the experience. Kelly also shares her memorable first (and only, so far) marathon in Chicago a few years back.
The conversation covers why the marathon in particular is such a challenging yet popular distance for runners to tackle, as well as the fall races each of them are looking forward (Kelly has a big trip planned with her husband, out west, and the race they’ll be doing sounds amazing!) Heather talks about her (then) upcoming trip to the D with Emma — this past weekend’s American Home Fitness Detroit Goddess Half Marathon, 10K and 5K. And they touch also on the upcoming Reebok Ragnar Michigan — a relay race from Muskegon to Traverse City Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
