Startup Podcast Run

Startup Podcast Run

I have a 3-4 mile loop1 that I’ve been running pretty often this summer–it’s been amazing to have some time to get back into running and feel a little fitter than usual. I’ve been running for years without music or headphones, usually content to let my mind wander and take in the sounds and the scenery as I pass through the neighborhood on foot.

Today, on a lark I decided to switch things up and run with my headphones on, so I asked Jake for a good podcast about startups. He directed me to the aptly named “Startup Podcast” so I installed Pocket Casts and downloaded some episodes before heading out on the run.

I was so engrossed by the startup podcast that I was still running after 4 episodes2 and 6.4 miles! I went a little slower than usual (it’s hard to run with gusto while trying to listen to someone talk), but it was an enjoyable experience that I think I might do more of. I ended up running till sunset at Piers Park, one of the best places to get some nice photos of Boston at any time of day.

The startup podcast is a few years old now and the story is all played out and ready for me to binge through a few seasons, so hopefully they continue to be entertaining enough to help me pass the time and many more miles on the road.
