RUNATL Podcast

Hello, Friends!

We probably do not do it often enough… More specifically, we do not put our teammates on the mic often enough, so that you can access the terrific work they do and the knowledge they have. That changes this week, however, as we bring you Joe Gibson, the Big Peach Running Co. Director, Footwear & Procurement, to the show. Joe gives us an awesome look into the past, present and future of athletic footwear and solid indication of what we should all be considering to get AND stay in the shoes that are best for us!

Show Notes:

To learn more about the Hanson’s Distance Project of which Joe was part and we referenced as a great program for elite, post-collegiate runners, check this out.

As Joe referenced, Hoka as a brand has had quite a ride in a relatively short period of time. Here’s a place where you learn how it all started.

To get more familiar with the Big Peach Running Co. fit process and how we’re mindful of the tips Joe shared relative to finding the right shoes for YOU, give this page a read and the included video a watch.

As always, thank you for listening and being part of the fun! We will be back in just two (2) weeks… In the meantime, MAY YOUR BEST MILES BE THOSE COVERED ON FOOT!
