RUNATL Podcast

Hello, Friends!

Before anything else, here’s a heartfelt apology.  We are sorry for the recording quality in this episode.  As tempting as it is to blame it on poor internet connectivity, sub-par cellular service and/or podcast apps that are not as good as we want them to be, I will, instead, say it was poor planning on my part.  The truth is that better planning of my schedule would have solved for all of the above shortcomings and others!  And, for sure, if you’ve already listened, you know that the conversation is still very much intelligible BUT we have certain standards for our production and we do not believe we met them in this instance.  Thank you for your patience and willingness to let us learn as we go…  You are very much appreciated!

Now, in this episode, we enjoyable demonstrate that Running, Walking and Hiking can, indeed, be “team activities!”  More specifically, we speak with Dave DeBoer with Ragnar – – the world’s greatest producer of relay events for pedestrians of every skill level!  The notes below send you to the places we went during our conversation.
