Great job with the podcast!
Hey, I'm doing something crazy in 2010 that I thought might be worth highlighting on your show:

2010 is going to be an historic year as I am going to achieve two big goals. First, I will be the first person to ever complete the entire Rock and Roll Endurance Series of events, starting with the PF Chang's Arizona Rock and Roll Marathon in January. While other runners may have run many R&Rs in the same year, no one has ever run 13 in a single year. That's what makes it so appealing. I'm on a quest to complete 50 marathons by my 50th birthday and this will put me over the halfway mark. The NYC Marathon on 11/1 will be my 19th marathon so far.

This feat will be doubly rewarding as during this endeavor I will be driving a national education and awareness campaign for the fight against blood cancers and raising over $10,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I've raised over $50,000 for the LLS since 2003 so this will put me over $60,000.

I'm a coach for the Northern California chapter of Team in Training (since 2007) and will be taking on this endeavor in behalf of the many honorees the society supports across the US.

When I'm not running I work as a well-known market analyst advising enterprise IT departments on their data center strategies and about cloud computing. You can find my work in these areas at: http://www.forrester.com/rb/analyst/james_staten. I have a very demanding job that requires me to travel up to 50% of the time. I find running and coaching for TNT as a tremendous way to maintain a work life balance, keep me healthy and give me the energy to keep driving.

I hope you will help support my efforts through your editorial coverage of this effort and the Rock and Roll events.

Thanks.
