EPISODE 66: Ahmaud Arbery, Ritz Retires, Saucony's New Shoe + The Basics of Base Training


In this episode Lauren and Abby run down the news from the past week + talk about the basics of base training.

While this podcast is dedicated to news in elite + professional distance running we felt that it would be remiss not to mention Ahmaud Arbery's death and how it has prompted us to think about how we respond going forward. We want to make sure that we are bringing light to stories that need to be told and amplifying diverse voices through our platform. Below are some resources that have been recommended to us and that we thought would be helpful to share for those of you that are reflecting on your response to Ahmaud's story.
