It’s all been leading up to this. With their list of sub-goals in hand, Bryan and Peter roll into Millinocket, Maine, for the 1st-ever HWYRT Crankle! 2K and the 2nd Annual Millinocket Marathon and Half. Sit back and enjoy this “listen-in” on what the weekend was all about. A huge “thank you” to both Social Media Guru Anna Brooks and Artist-in-Residence Andrea Bonney Gould for making the trek north. And an even bigger “thank you” to the people of Millinocket, who were so generous with their warmth, support, and spirit. This episode was recorded on-location in the town of Millinocket, Maine, Friday, December 9th though Sunday, December 11th, 2016.

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!
