RUNATL Podcast

Hello, Friends!

Finally!  Finally, it is THAT time!  The time that Atlanta’s running and walking community stirs an almost singular focus…  It’s almost Independence Day and the season known as “Peachtree!”  And, of course, like kids with Christmas, D2, I and many others know this is as a season unto itself!  As such, it only stands to reason that we would have an episode dedicated to this marvelous spectacle…  We’ve done it right, too, including the only person who has run all 48 AJC Peachtree Road Races and a 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate!  This is an episode to be enjoyed and shared with friends!

As always, thank you for being part of the fun!  For those who are running this year’s race, all the best to you!  We will be looking for you! 

The Show Notes are below…
