145: How Runners Support Runners with Corey Brown

Jun 18, 2020


We talk about running as a universal sport.  It has a low barrier for entry and not a lot of rules to follow.  You can participate solo or in a group.  You can run races of many distances and on various terrain, or not race at all.  We believe that races highlight the best aspects of running, in which many people come together to accomplish the same goal, but by following their own path.  In the race environment, they can accomplish more than what they may have been able to do alone.  Today, we cover the universal nature of running, and how our journeys may look different, but are in fact very similar and all intertwined.
