Great podcast from a favorite writer of mine. Though the sponsor with the Kenyan running bands is a problem. I paid 15 pound for a band and it was never delivered and the email addresses come back undeliverable. Disappointing as I was looking forward to it.
Love it already!
I’m a podcast junkie but many popular running-related podcasts don’t hook me. This one did!
