I am so excited that I got to spend a day with my friend and previous
guest Derek Zardus! He has been running all over the country and closing in on
his goal of 50 marathons. He was passing through my area on his way to the
Atlantic City Marathon. Listen to the episode to find out all of the progress he
has made over the past year!
About Derek Zardus
Derek Zardus’ mantra on the road is the running equivalent of Carolina Pulled
Pork – Low and Slow. He believes we can run and improve ourselves without
destroying the machinery that propels us forward. Downshifting on general runs
by running and walking allows us to run more regularly and more consistently
without the common maladies that plague many runners: shin spints, plantar
faceitious, Ilio Tibial Band Syndrome, etc. Derek started running consistently
about six years ago and suffered from a wide variety of those common problems
until recovery from a herniated disc led him to commit to consistent run/walk
strategies. Since then, he has completed 3 official marathons (Burlington VT,
Bay of Fundy International, and Newport RI), paced a friend as race support for
the Sugarloaf ME marathon, and completed 4 other marathon distances this past
year as training for his 2016 goal of running 50 classic marathon routes in 50
states in 50 weeks. Derek has also paced a variety of half marathons with Beast
Pacing starting in March of 2015.
