The MidPack Podcast is the running podcast for runners that always celebrate the finish line, but are never quite satisfied with their finish times. Runners of all abilities that are working hard to become better runners and only competing with their former selves.
The host of The MidPack Podcast is Bill Dowis, a back of the mid-pack runner working hard to run better, stronger, and faster and constantly doing battle with the marathon.
Listen in as Bill talks about endurance, long distance running, cross training, nutrition, diet and exercise, fitness, and dreaming of one day winning his age group at any race distance.
Find the show on Twitter @themidpackers.
