OxenTales Episode 4 – The one about the taper freak-out.

Hi! Thanks for checking out my podcast.  OxenTales is about a boy and his adventures in running and his secret love for (almost)OxenTrot_resized
all things geek.

Week Four = One shot OxenTrot!

The taper for my first ultra marathon is killing me and I was not ready to record anything this week. But I sucked it up and babbled straight the early part of my morning commute.

If you like what you hear, please go to either OxenTales on iTunes and/or OxenTales on Stitcher and provide a review, subscribe to the show and/or share it with friends.

So this recording has no ugly editing, but it does have all the other back ground noise. Turn signals. Honking horns. My inability to pronounce words correctly. I left worts and all untouched.

Up front, let me post that charity my wife organized and will be running this weekend. www.ridetoprovide.org

This week I reflect on my training as I settle into my final week before the big 50 mile event. I provide an update on my taper freak out and readdress my goals for the big day.

Again I speak of my physical therapist, Rich. His full credentials are:
Rich Banton – Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center, Clinical Director (www.spinemd.com/our-team/physical…ts/richard-banton)

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
