During the show, “Start the Year Off Right,” Hewson will share advice for new runners and those training for a half-marathon, based on his own experience as a runner and his “Training for the Half Marathon” course at UMW. Later in the show, Schiffrin will encourage listeners to cultivate strong relationships with family and friends, rather than focusing on the effects of a less than ideal economy. Schiffrin’s portion of the program originally aired in January 2011.
