Episode 156 - Kiah Quarles & Imani Graham

57 minutes

Bryan and Peter are back in their podcasting second home at the Boston Public Library! First, Bryan gives an update on his training for the Boston Marathon, where he will be guiding friend-of-the-show Tim Sullivan to support Team With A Vision. He also shares some workout advice he got from Coach Paul Davies, and talks about how he's facing the immense changes in weather. Plus, Peter shares how he's training his diet (also a marathon, not a sprint!) while continuing PT for his foot injury. Then, they are joined by special guests Kiah Quarles and Imani Graham, both first-time marathoners who are running for the brand new Boston Public Library charity team. Kiah and Imani describe the excitement of hitting big mile markers as they build up their distance, how they've been managing their training and fundraising, and, of course, how they strap on the feedbag. They also talk about their athletic pasts and Imani shares the story of how a traumatic injury changed her life and eventually brought her to distance running. 

Don't forget to sign up for the LOVE FEST happening next Thursday, February 14th, at the Heartbreak Hill Running Company! Come hang out with fellow runners, shop, or take a class.
