Hello, Friends,

This is from our second installment of our Facebook Live videocast.  A tremendous and enjoyable conversation with our friend, Tom Carleo.  Tom is the Vice President, Running & Footwear Innovation at New Balance – – and has one of the most storied careers of all-time in performance footwear!  With stints previously at Nike and Saucony, the opportunity to learn from Bill Bowerman and other industry icons, he now helps runners at every level find equipment that feels better, reduces the prospect of injury, and helps us cover each mile more comfortably (and, perhaps, quickly!).

Here are the Show Notes:
