RUNATL Podcast

Hello, Friends!

Our Featured Conversation this episode features one of the best distance runners in American history:  Ryan Hall.  However, this conversation is anything but predictable!  Because even though Ryan has retired from professional running, there’s so much more to discuss than just his Olympic performances, his American records and his significant achievements as a runner…  We cover what it’s like to coach your kids and wife, write a book, develop a training program – – and run 15 miles as a 13-year old!  We also get his thoughts on the Olympic Marathon Trials coming to Atlanta next year…  My friend, Jay Stephenson, joins, too, as someone who has a genuine interest in developing himself and others to both be the best runner AND best person he and they can be!  He and Ryan have teamed up to bring us Run Free Training… and this is your invitation to get front row seat on the launch!
