New year, new episode! Peter and Bryan welcome 2019 with a special visit from Peter's long-time friend and new runner, David Macklem, on his stateside holiday trip from Japan. First, they try to figure out if Dave actually met Bryan back in their Syracuse University days. Then, stories of Dave and Peter strapping on the feedbag in their youth lead to revelations about when they each hit their low points and turned their health around. For Dave, that included a certain inspirational running podcast and finding experienced runners to coach him. The guys also talk about the challenge of returning to running after injury, Dave's amazing unsupported personal marathon in beautiful Okayama, and the supportive HWYRT community on Strava.
There's a new crew at the WGBH Studio in the Boston Public Library-the Unnamed Run Crew (UNMD). Peter and Bryan are joined by UNMD's founder Leandrew Belnavis, co-leader Elizabeth Rock, and crew member Alex Caballero to talk about their diverse and inclusive running crew that leaves no runner behind. Leandrew describes how what started as a birthday run with a group of friends turned into a weekly, music-filled run with a crew of up to 50 or more runners. They also talk about some of the challenges people can face in Boston, particularly those who are new to it, and how Liz and Alex found their way to UNMD. Plus, Peter accepts a challenge from Leandrew, and everyone reveals the super power they wish they had. Plus, Bryan has big plans to reveal!
