The None to Run Podcast

Welcome to my fourth interview in the "Get Started Running Series".

Today I chat with Steve Boyd.


Steve is the founder and coach of the Physi-Kult running group in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Steve is an accomplished runner at many distances (2:17 for the marathon!). Many of his best times came after the age of 30. 

I think you will get a lot out of my chat with Steve. He brings running experience both from the competitive athlete side and the coaching side that not many have.
