The Family with Tom Barnard

Dana Diedrich and Rob Pope – #2301

Did you know Alex was doing a podcast? No, not this one. There’s another. It’s called “The Millennial’s Guide To Being Okay”, and it features her and Dana telling you how to be okay. Here’s one way to not be okay: run 15,000 miles without years of training beforehand. Rob was smart enough to put in some light exercise such as ultra-marathons first, so he could do it no problem. Plus he got a book out of the experience. It’s called Becoming Forrest, because he retraced Forrest Gump’s steps across the country. Turns out it’s not as easy as the movie makes it sound.
