Doesn’t everyone love a good running story? Well, you’ve come to the right episode because this one is full of them. Benji Durden’s delightful stories truly document his journey of running.

 Benji begins by taking us through his journey of getting into marathons. He shares how he has become famously known for saying, “Anyone who runs a marathon is sick.”

 He gives us advice on listening to our bodies and not expecting too much from ourselves too soon.

 We talk about information overload, i.e. watches, and what he sees as being better at the beginning of his career compared to now where information overload can sabotage us.

 Working towards faster times, it is easy to let expectations take over and beat ourselves up. Benji describes and shares examples of how he worked and currently works with expectations.

 Benji recalls personal stories of the Olympic trials and the 1980 boycotted Olympic games.

 Athletes often think that because they are healthy that a physical ailment won’t happen to them. Benji openly shares his experiences with cancer and chemo treatment.

 Today's Guest Benji Durden

 Benji Durden has a smoking fast PR in the marathon of 2:09, and has run 25 sub-2:20 marathons in less than a decade’s time. He is one of the 461 athletes who received the Congressional Gold Medal after the Olympic Games was boycotted in 1980. Currently, he and his wife time races in and around Boulder, Colorado, where they live

 What You Will Learn About  How Benji divides up his races to keep motivated. How he used the hard / easy approach to get a 4 minute marathon PR. Why he used to train in double sweats. What made him walk away from his first marathon saying, “Anyone who runs a marathon is sick.” How pomegranates are involved in his running for real moment. How someone mistook him for a space alien.  Inspirational Quotes There is no perfect plan for everyone, like there is no perfect nutritional plan.

 Well, part of it is you have to enjoy the process. It’s not simply about how fast you can run. It’s about the whole process. If you’re not having a good time with your training, and you’re not having a good time with racing, something’s wrong, you’re not doing it right.

 One of the things you have to learn is patience and don’t try too hard. I mean, you gotta try, but not too hard. You have to listen and know your limits. If you don’t know your limits, you find out the hard way what they are.

 For me, it’s always been about running against other bodies. The clock always wins. If you focus too much on that, you never win. You are never satisfied. Being satisfied is part of the goal.

 The first ten miles or so I consider a fast social run. Then the next ten miles is sort of a transitional period. And by the end of that, I’m trying to pick out people I going to catch.

What’s one piece of advice you’d offer to younger competitive runners looking to stay sharp into their 60s?
There are a number of things I’d say. Number one is about being consistent with your training. You have to be out there every day. Normally, when I’ve got the time, I work out in the morning and I work out in the evening, and that’s really helped me sustain what I had back in the 70s and 80s, all the way into 2015. Number two is the flexibility issue. You cannot ignore the fact that father time is overtaking you and, as a runner, you’re not nearly as flexible when you’re sixty as you were when you’re sixteen. I have to constantly work on it. I probably spend half an hour to forty-five minutes a day on flexibility. If I’m working, every hour I’ll get up for five minutes, in the cockpit, and stretch–make sure that the blood is flowing. The third piece of the puzzle is weight. I’m still at my high school weight. I refuse to gain any weight, primarily because I know that it’s going to put more stress on my joints–stress on everything–and the more stress on your joints, the more problems you’re going to have. That’s why I kept the weight off and it’s been working for me.
