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.
