HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS!!!  We sincerely hope you had a special holiday season and that 2019 is already off to a strong start for you!  Here we go!

For the RUNATL Podcast, we are not wasting any time getting into our evolved format and running headlong into our broadcast priorities:  To Inform; To Inspire; To Encourage; To Empower.  In this kick-off episode for both the new year and new format, we bring the inimitable Bart Yasso to the airwaves!

For those who are not yet familiar with Bart, he is rightly known as the “Mayor of Running,” having served as the Chief Running Officer at Runner’s World magazine for 30+ years, completed thousands of races, including on every continent, is a member of the Running USA “Hall of Champions,” a multiple Ironman and Badwater finisher and the author of the deservedly popular book, “My Life On The Run,” with all kinds of wit and wisdom for pedestrian-active enthusiasts of every level!

Without further ado, here are your Show Notes for the first episode of the year!
