HWYRT goes on the road to Brooklyn, NY, to meet artist, writer, and runner Lori Richmond. Lori explains about how she went from being an art kid in remedial gym to having her art featured in Runner's World for her #viewfrommyrun project on Instagram. She also talks about her love of running in New York, her lack of joy of cooking, the benefits of creative personal projects, and the parallels between art and running. Peter, Bryan, and Lori also have the spark of a fantastic new idea that may take the art/writing/running/cooking/retail world by storm. Plus, questions for Lori from fantastic human (and former HWYRT guest) Emily Saul.

Check out all of Lori’s great work! http://www.loridraws.com/

Bryan has a not-entirely-surprising Millinocket Marathon reveal and Peter feels the sting of listener feedback. Plus, the “mad pooper” in the news reminds Bryan of a recent strange experience. Then the guys head to the Boston Public Library for an in-depth chat with adventurer, runner, and filmmaker Jonathan Ronzio. They discuss his very early entrepreneurial beginnings, what it took to make his first film Between the Peaks, where the best trails are for mountain running, and what a life full of exercise, adventure, and art looks like. Keep your eyes on the “chicken bus” and don’t stop until you reach Denali!

Bryan and Peter will be back next week with the start of the all-new Season Two of HWYRT! This week, they wrap up the Summer Rewind series with their incredible interview with the one and only Kelly Roberts! Stay tuned to the end for a new update from Kelly and be here next week for the start of Season Two!

Bryan survives his 18-miler and Peter is on the verge of being on the road again. Then, a fantastic conversation with Kelly Roberts of Run Selfie Repeat. Kelly talks about how she began taking the running and social media worlds by storm, and about the importance of learning to love yourself for what your body can do rather than how well it meets some unrealistic standard. She also gives HWYRT a look into her special brand of craziness that led her to run multiple marathons in one month. Plus, the dangers of mini trampolines!
