Welcome to a brand new series on my YouYube channel, called RUN WITH. The sole aim of this series is to bring to you, fellow running enthusiasts (some may say addicts), interviews from a range of inspiring athletes and people in the running community. Keep your eyes peeled for a whole host of inspiring runners from different running backgrounds, covering a wide range of topics. From road to trail. short to Ultras, professional athletes to running superheroes and founders of running related clubs and communities. I absolutely love hearing from and talking to other runners, and hopefully you will too.
If you would like to support this series, and the vlog, a coffee would be lovely and certainly help the content creativity flow! https://www.buymeacoffee.com/Kellogs
