Hello, Friends,

This is special.  For so many reasons…  In this episode, check how much truly meaningful material we’ve packed into a single episode:

  • We get to catch up with friends, as I’ve known Alex and Stephanie Rodriquez for more than a decade AND greatly admired their own efforts in the industry in which Big Peach participates.
  • We get to make a wonderful announcement, as we let everyone know that North GA Running Co. in Cumming, GA will soon become an official part of the Big Peach family, as we convert this store to Big Peach Running Co. – Cumming/North GA.  This also means we’ll be able to work even more closely with Alex, Stephanie, and their Team (as they continue to own and operate the location).
  • We get to continue our highlight of diversity in the lifestyle and industry we serve, as Alex immigrated to the U.S. in 1991.  We talk about the state of affairs currently with getting increasing numbers of Latino-Americans into a pedestrian-active lifestyle.
  • We also learn from Alex and “Fe” as to what it takes to operate a successful business with your spouse AND where the local racing scene is headed these days (as they also own/operate the North Georgia Race Series!).

This is good, y’all!
