RUNATL Podcast

Hello, Friends,

Welcome to our annual Cross-Country episode!  We traditionally release this theme in the latter part of the Summer, before the season begins… BUT I doubt we have to detail why we hesitated to do such.  Now, however, the State Meet is scheduled, the season has materialized for many teams and student-athletes somewhat uninterrupted – – and we’re excited to send all of these young men and women into their Region Meets with some awesome guidance from a former NCAA Division I National Champion!  More specifically, Keith Kelly, Men’s Champion in 2000 from Providence dishes solid guidance and great perspective that is seemingly timeless, as we crest the 20-year mark of his title!  And rest assured if you’re not involved with XC – – there is plenty here for all of us for life, in general, especially in this most unique of years!  Even the hosting duties performed by my 15-year old daughter and the questions coming from her own XC team will encourage and inspire all of us!

Here are the Show Notes:

As always, thank you for listening… and for all your support.  YOU are why this journey is still so satisfying…  We so sincerely hope to see you soon!  In the meantime, MAY YOUR BEST MILES BE THOSE COVERED ON FOOT!

– Mike
