Why We Love to Hate (and Hate to Love) Running Influencers

Alex, Katelyn and Michael also dig into the Boston Marathon's new logo, and how and when to eat pre run or race

In this week’s episode, Alex, Katelyn and Michael discuss why it is that the Boston Marathon decided to (literally) give the unicorn on their logo a face lift. Then, they unpack the brief history of the running influencer — how it all started, some of the influential figures in the space, the pro athlete as influencer, and where this all goes from here. Finally, they break down how to approach eating pre run or race, as well as some terrible mistakes each has made in the past with food before running.

Hosts: Alex Cyr, Michael Doyle and Katelyn Tocci
