Episode 6 – The RUNATL Podcast with Guests Coach Barbe & Coach Etienne

D2 has safely returned from Grand Cayman and, unbelievably enough, it is already that time of year when local students head back to school and a new cross-country season commences!  To help all of us get ready for the action ahead AND to further the prospects for success this season for student-athletes, coaches and parents alike, we’ve brought two (2) of the Atlanta-area’s most accomplished coaches…  More specifically, Coach Rick Barbe of Lakeside High School and Coach Wesley Etienne of Clarkston High School join us and provide abundant guidance for all of us, whether we’re actively involved in the sport this season or not.  And especially for young coaches, parents and young prospective runners, this is a treasure chest!  Be sure to share this broadcast with everyone you know who is a runner, cross-country athlete or a friend or family member of a student-athlete anywhere!

Also, don’t forget to mention your school affiliation next time you shop at Big Peach Running Co. (BPRC) to save 10% on all your purchases.  And, of course, keep-in-mind no place has a better selection of XC spikes and training shoes than BPRC!

Here is the complete set of show notes for our sixth episode:
