Andrew Neill Nunez Has Had Many Detours On His Road To The Olympics

Today’s episode will be a little different from usual because my guest is an avid cyclist, though running is very much a part of his past.

Not sure I’ve ever had an ex-runner on the show before, but there’s a first time for everything!

It’s my pleasure to welcome my fellow Headsweats ambassador, Andrew Neill Nunez to the show!

Nick made his on the international scene as an 800 meter runner, which some would label as the hardest event in a track meet. Nick isn’t so sure the 800 is the hardest, though it’s no picnic for sure.

Bursting Onto the Scene at the Prefontaine Classic

Matt always thought that the marathon was going to be his best event. As his marathon debut approached, he had his sights set on making a splash and announcing his arrival onto the world stage.

We talked running and a whole lot more on todays episode and here are some of the highlights of the chat: Read more
