Episode 67 - Christopher Carter, Psy.D.

They are not medical doctors. Turns out they’re not psychologists, either. That's why Bryan and Peter are joined by Dr. Chris Carter, team psychologist for Spaulding Hospital's Race for Rehab Boston Marathon team. They discuss why runners run, what the brain goes through on long runs, and how to tackle training for the big race. Plus, Peter gives his Clyde Army Countdown update for week eight.

Episode 66 - "Shoe Chains & Snow Days"

As winter makes itself known in Boston, Peter continues to train for the marathon and breaks in his new Yaktrax. Bryan gets a run in with his beer brewing buddy. And they get a visit from listener and sub-sub-elite runner Funny Ellen London. Plus, an update on the first full week of Peter's Clyde Army Countdown!

Episode 65 - "DNF"

As Peter’s marathon training continues, he pitches a new motivational segment for the show to Bryan. Then, they attempt to interview a guest via Skype, but the internet doesn’t cooperate. They end the show having to rely on some serious “self talk” to stay positive.

Episode 64 - Bill McCabe

Peter's marathon training has him dreaming about running. Meanwhile, Bryan is back out on the trails and experiences a really tough workout. Then they are joined by the inspirational Bill McCabe who began running in his 50s and has been crushing it ever since. He has run marathons on all 7 continents, ran the Boston Marathon route 26 weeks in a row, and still has some major running goals to share.

Episode 63 - "Run-in-Place"

The Run-in-Place Party and Podcast Extravaganza was an event like no other. As a snowstorm raged outside, HWYRT joined forces with Coach Dan Fitzgerald and his team at the Heartbreak Hill Running Company for running, shopping, beer drinking, and, of course, podcasting. Partygoers mingled and tried out the amazing treadmill classes, while Bryan and Peter talked with new and experienced runners about how they train, the races they've run, and what they have planned next. The night ended with a raffle that helped two runners add over $1,000 to benefit their Boston Marathon charity running teams.
