Continued advice and huge entertainment factor

Have been listening to your shoes for approx 9 months, the range of topics continues to be diverse, and I’m learning so much. Great that Heather is now a co-host, just remember to give her air time Mark, which means less of your dulcet tones pls 😁 Keep doing what you’re doing, it’s truly inspirational for me as a novice triathlete. Many thanks
