Podcaster Meet Up! Joint Episode with C Tolle Run

It’s been fun to meet and collaborate with other podcasters through the years. We kept the agenda loose on this episode -the goal was to have a fun conversation. We ended up talking about some important topics, like pregnancy and running, time management, elite runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald -a fellow Minnesota runner and friend of Carrie’s who lost her battle with cancer on June 11th. We also share our top picks for small town marathons.

Absolutely overjoyed on this 4th of July! Ran a 2.3 mile sprint race this morning and came in 5th place overall and 1st place in my age group with a time of 12:44. 5:40 average miles and it was a 30 second improvement from last year and I felt absolutely amazing during and after the race. I couldn’t do what I do without support from MTA and my wonderful girlfriend who supports me every training run and race. A huge shoutout to Coach Angie who had put together a great training plan for me this summer so far and got me to this race feeling fantastic! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store for me. -Luke
