Episode 5 – The RUNATL Podcast with Guests Bernard Lagat, Neely Gracy, & Carrie Tollefson

Greetings, Friends!

Congratulations to everyone who finished this year’s AJC Peachtree Road Race AND to everyone – whether they participated this year or not – who has already made plans to be at the Start Line in 2018!  Part of how D2 and I spent our time at the accompanying Peachtree Health & Fitness Expo was a Facebook Live event that brought us interviews with Coach Bill Thorn (the only person to have run all 48 Peachtree Road Races!), gubernatorial candidate and Lt. Governor, Casey Cagle, Cross-Country State Champion, Nicole Fegans and a variety of elite athletes who were in-town for the race.  For this podcast, D2 culls out the best interviews with some of the best runners in the field!  More specifically, we feature Bernard Lagat, Neely Spence Gracy and Carrie Tollefson in candid conversations that will help us not only train better – – but also live better!  You’re in for a treat!  Here is just a sampling of what you’ll hear: –  Bernard Lagat sharing the importance of nutrition… and his love of barbeque! –  Neely Spence Gracy reaffirming D2’s contention in Episode #4 about Hill Repeats… and her binge NetFlix habits during training cycles! –   Carrie Tollefson demonstrating the positive impact we have on others (our kids, our co-workers) when we model our own fitness-minded lifestyle… and her sleepwear of choice!

And, of course, here is the complete set of show notes for our fifth episode:
