Peter interviews Bryan about his all-day running experience. Happy Holidays from all of us at HWYRT!

Dec 18, 2020

Bryan gives Peter the 411 on his upcoming Soul Searching Solstice Run. Is he ready to run for nine-plus hours? WHO KNOWS?! No matter what, he will be supported on the day by Emily Saul (of the November Project) and the incredible long distance running duo of Lori Michener and Paul Chekal. He will also be empowered by a new song from Jenn Schott to help him set the tone [maybe instead of "set the tone" make it "get in the zone"?]. Then, it’s time for a quick trip into the medical tent—always the right place to be just before a full day of running. This is the final show for the year, so we want to wish all HWYRTians far and wide a safe and happy holiday season and a better new year.

Peter and Bryan welcome Sasha Wolff, founder of Still I Run (https://www.stilliruncommunity.com), a non-profit charity focused on the benefits of running for mental health.
