Hello, Friends!

Even though the debate as to whether Rich Kenah or Mike Cosentino has the best job in the Running industry rages on, it is always fun when friends sit down to discuss the sport and celebrate all that we love…  Said differently, former professional runner and Olympian and current Executive Director of the Atlanta Track Club, Rich Kenah, sits down with us as our Featured Conversation this episode.  With guidance and insight for everyone, we share his journey and join him in his enthusiasm for “Running City, USA!”

As always, thank you for being part of the fun!  The Show Notes are below…
