Hello, Friends!

With this episode, we kick-off a February we won’t soon forget! More specifically, we’re getting ready for the arrival of the Olympic Marathon Trials on February 29th… To help us do so, we’re going to bring you a different episode every week this month (instead of the traditional release every 2 weeks), featuring athletes you’ll see on the course! And, believe me, we’re not just conversing with any athlete who will take our phone call… We’ve selected those who are favorites and who have stories to tell and guidance to provide us that can help get better in so many areas of our life! In this episode, Brittany Charboneau – – The Funny Runner – – demonstrates the courage she exhibited to not only become a professional runner… BUT also to pursue her career in show business!

Here are the conversations we’ll have this month:
February 10th: Jared Ward

February 24th: Molly Huddle
