Jaydagrl ,

Awesome Podcast!

I’m new to running & your podcast. Started June 14, 2020 at just a mile a day so I’m very fresh. I enjoy listening to your podcast & actually hearing and seeing people who look like me enjoy the sport as well.

Enjoy a fresh mew perspective

I’ve enjoyed most of the episodes now. Just listened to the guys from Detroit and Run313. I’m from the west side of Michigan and enjoyed hearing the locals and there success . I come from a company who is diving deeply into I&D and I need to educate myself more on culture and different views. Thanks
