We are so happy to welcome The Run Duo - India Cook and Tommy Mitchell to the show!
India and Tommy are marathoners and hosts of their podcast, The Run Duo that they started in 2018. They have great conversations about running and interview many awesome athletes in the sport - definitely check out their show!

In this conversation, we have a fun and detailed pre-Christmas chat with India and Tommy about the great city of Atlanta and all of their inside tips of the best places to RUN, where to explore, recommendations of where to find tasty food in the city (soul food!), historical hot spots and so much more. We also talk about their running journey, including how they got started in the sport, their entry into the world of podcasting and what they really love about their city of Atlanta. You guys, this was a longer conversation, but India and Tommy are so much fun to talk to! They provided a wealth of information about Atlanta and are truly great people - the running community is lucky to have them. Enjoy our conversation with the Run Duo!

India and Tommy's recommendations in Atlanta:

1. Peachtree Street (downtown Atlanta)

2. The Belt Line (East side Belt Line - mid town area is a great place. Loops around Piedmont Park).

3. Freedom Park Trail (very historic) - will go from downtown Atlanta to Stone Mountain.

4.  Silver Comet Trail (A paved trail can go from Atlanta to Alabama. Great for long runs). 

5. Piedmont Park

6. The Marta Stations (start at midtown station - can be a 10 mile run)
7. Stone Mountain Park - 5 mile route around the mountain.
