So, please, if you would, check it out!

Then tweet me, or comment there or here – just somewhere, say something and let me know if you liked it, please. Thanks!

If you want to know a little more than just me telling you to listen – we talk about my time in the hospital with my heart stuff, running 52 half marathons, running Disney races, and The Price is Right. (That’s in part 1 – which is the link above).

In part 2, we talk about The Price is Right story, kidneys, and equality. When I listened, it sound like a bit got cut out here and there around the talk regarding equality and Broadway Impact. I know we had a couple of technical issues (as we mentioned at the beginning of part 1). So, it might’ve been that.

Either way, I think you get the gist of what I was saying. But, if it sounds a little wonky, it’s ’cause I think there are hiccups/jumps in there.

(Within the 2-part podcast, I also make the embarrassing admission that I’ve never seen MASH! (And I accidentally misuse was vs were at one point – just pretend like you don’t notice.))

(Not to bring attention to all my faults, but I also say that my dad “just did the 5k.” I’d get a very stern talking to from my high school theater teacher who taught me the very important lesson to never use “just” when talking about people’s accomplishments. There is no just. Everything we do is intertwined and important.)

(Also, I said something like “young people don’t usually get EKGs. Most people don’t get EKGs until they’re over 50” – which kind of implied 50 is old. And I really don’t think it is. I was sort of just regurgitating the sentences the doctors had said when I was in the hospital. I’m sorry for implying 50’s old, which isn’t true.)

But, enough with apologies and picking apart what I said. Moving on:

Apart from what we talked about, if you’re interested in how the podcast came about – I met this really nice, cool guy – Brian Katala – at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Vegas night race while I was live tweeting. We’ve been friends ever since. (Thanks, twitter (as always making my life better)!)

He emailed me and asked if I wanted to do his podcast. Of course I said yes! I like to think I’m game for pretty much anything (in case any of you want to invite me on your podcasts.) Also, who wouldn’t want to spend time talking with Brian? (Especially when it’s time talking about herself.)

We had talked for about 1/2 an hour when the iPad died on us, and we lost everything we’d done thus far. We tried to do it all over again for you as if nothing had gone wrong. It’s a weird feeling when you know you’re repeating yourself, but you know the audience doesn’t know it.

We took some new tangents on the second go ’round. Even though it wasn’t precisely the same, hopefully you don’t feel any bits are missing that you didn’t hear from the first take (that we ended up not repeating). Hopefully you enjoy any new stuff that did come out (even though you may not know what’s new and what’s repeated). And hopefully you don’t feel like I sound any less enthused or more confused while repeating things.

I guess the main point is, I really hope you like it!

If you haven’t listened already, don’t forget to listen here for part 1 and here for part 2.

I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
