Episode 135 - Phoning It In

Episode description

Bryan and Peter can't be together at the studio, but a new episode is only a phone call away. Peter is cautious about his running streak after feeling some familiar pains, while Bryan and Artist-in-Residence Andrea tackle The North Face Endurance Challenge, resulting in a mix of victories and struggles. Also, Bryan talks about being back in the racing game (although there is still so much #RebuildingBryan to be done) and Peter starts to question his racing decisions. Next, we follow Vinnie Cent to Atlanta, where he chats with Coco Esser of the November Project Atlanta tribe. Coco describes how she got into distance running, made ALL the mistakes, and fell in love with the sport. She also talks about getting into running groups when she moved to Atlanta and how she found her home with NP.
