As Peter and Bryan take some much-needed summer rest, they reintroduce an interview from the HWYRT archives for the first Summer Rewind of 2017:
Father Daniel P. Horan, OFM, a Franciscan friar and sub-elite runner, joins Bryan and Peter in the studio for a hilarious hour-long interview. They discuss the connection between running and spirituality, how Fr. Horan heard the call to be a Franciscan and a runner, and the proper footwear to go with a wool habit. Plus, a new “App That Up” recommendation.
It’s no secret that Bryan and Peter are both 46 years old. But, they do have secrets that they've been keeping from each other. In this episode, those secrets come to light. Also, Peter has begun training for his first ultra and is including a new morning ritual. And November Project holds their 5th Annual Summit in the Boston area. Plus, Bryan opens up Peter's eyes to ferret legging.
Writer (and veteran HWYRT guest) Caleb Daniloff joins Bryan and Peter to talk about his special report in Runner’s World on the science behind how exercise can help battle addiction. Caleb is also on a journey from life-long "mystery meat" eater to vegetarian to full-on vegan. How has his radical change of diet affected his running? And do Bryan and Peter see themselves making a similar change? Plus, the November Project Summit 5.0 comes to Boston.
