In this episode, I bring on one of our coaches in NYC to discuss the current situation in New York City. Justin has been coaching with us in Manhattan since January of 2019, leading groups to the NYC Half and NYC Marathon last year. To start this year, the group was prepping for the NYC Half again, but then everything changed.

Justin tells his story as a runner and a coach, and then we discussion the current state of affairs with the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic there. Justin provides his perspective from his self quarantine in Queens. In particular, I appreciate how he encourages us all to think about those cancelled or postponed races. Justin's energy for running and the running community is contagious. It brought a smile to my face, and I hope it does for you too during a tough time.

Our hearts go out to all in NYC...
