Running Inside Out

Running Inside Out is just one piece of an extremely vibrant running community in Rochester, NY.

We all have our many reasons for running and let's face it, runners love to tell running stories as much as they like to hear running stories. Our goal is to share the stories and successes of the members of this community.

At times we also might talk about cool races, services, stores and products. I apologize in advance, if ever we accidentally talk about something that isn't running related.

Past Episodes

  • Show 101 - Don't Text Late Night With Mort Aired: Monday, June 11, 2018

    First Chris and Jen catch up on Chris’ very exciting weekend racing Ontario Summit, with all the climbing and sweating and powering through with pretzels. Then they touch on the junk in their trunks: all the running related stuff they keep in their cars.

  • Show 100 - The Struggle Bus Aired: Monday, June 4, 2018

    Chris, Sheila and Jen discuss the struggle bus, falling off the wagon and other difficult modes of transportation. Whether it was a bad run, a lack of motivation or just a crazy confluence of circumstances, at some point everyone has ridden the struggle bus. Sometimes the wheels even fall off. So what do you do? How do you get back on the horse/wagon/training plan?

  • Show 099 - It's Definitely Memorial Day Aired: Monday, May 28, 2018

    What do you do you on your off-days? Are they rest day where you wander around with nary a memory  of being a runner? Do you dutifully do recovery and cross-training? Or do you chain yourself to large furniture to keep from getting some more sweet, sweet miles?

  • Show 098 - An Absurd Number Of Bananas Aired: Monday, May 21, 2018

    Sheila and Jen take a peek behind the curtain and talk about what it’s like to run a race as an RD versus what it’s like to run a race as a participant. There’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes of your favorite local races. Let’s just say if you’ve ever bought an entire shopping cart full of bananas, you might be a race director!

  • Show 097 - Big Audacious Goals Aired: Monday, May 14, 2018

    Sheila and Chris discuss choosing which races to put on your calendar. Do you want to race? How do you choose from the plethora of race options out there? Is it for the food, the swag, “the scene,” the mystery of inaugural races, peer pressure or something else (the food again)? And after you’ve picked a race, now what?

  • Show 096 - Grub Aired: Monday, May 7, 2018

    Chris and Jen ruminate on eating to live and run. What do you eat when you’re running? What do you eat the rest of the time? Chris wants to meal prep so he can avoid the sad salad in the work cafeteria. Jen’s M.O. for eating (and pretty much everything else in life) is figure out what you like and do that.

  • Show 095 - Carb Baby Aired: Monday, April 30, 2018

    Runners have their own set of weird words. What does it all mean? In this episode, Sheila, Jen and Chris confabulate about the vernacular of the runner. Listen in to hear all about the fartlek and bonking and DOMS and chafing.

  • Show 094 - Super Glam! Aired: Monday, April 23, 2018

    Sheila and Jen talk about running and body image. Do you feel like you “look like a runner?” Has running had a positive or a negative effect on your body image? How do you feel when you see race photos of yourself? (Hopefully like the super awesome runner that you are!)

  • Show 093 - Boston, It's Great! Aired: Monday, April 16, 2018

    It’s Marathon Monday! Chris, Sheila and Jen chat about the 122nd Boston Marathon: the rain, the wind, the port-o-potty stops and of course, the one and only Desi!!!

  • Show 092 - Bad Decisions Are Sometimes Good Decisions Aired: Monday, April 9, 2018

    Chris and Sheila discuss ultra considerations. What constitutes an ultramarathon? How do you make the bad (good?) decision to go beyond the marathon and run an ultra? What’s your motivation, sandwiches or skittles?
