Well produced and thoughtful

First of all, it's great to hear David Willey's voice again! I've truly appreciated the wide range of athletes interviewed and the way they've opened up. I'm a runner myself but have learned a ton about other sports through this show. It's a great example of brand-supported storytelling that doesn't feel at all like marketing.
