We've got a mega pod for you today as after breaking down the USA Cross Country Championships, an Aussie 16-year-old sensation, and Sha'Carri Richardson getting booted off a flight we've got 2 guests.
First, Nike Union Athletics Club coach Pete Julian joins us at 92:24 to talk about this weekend's Lilac Grand Prix, a World Athletics Silver Label meet he is hosting (viewing info here), and to give us an update on the UAC and Donavan Brazier, Raevyn Rogers and Jordan Hasay. Plus he issues a challenge to Team New Balance.
Then, Andrew Colley of Zap Endurance joins us at 2:23:49 and is our Where Your Dreams Become Reality athlete of the week after he finished 2nd at the USA XC Championships to make Team USA after 8 years in the running wilderness. What kept him living the dream and what's next in store for him?
