We are so happy to welcome Brooke Hult to the Suite Run Podcast! Brooke is the Social Media Strategist for Garmin Running and she is crushing the roads in her own running. Brooke is a 1:28 half marathoner, a 3:09 marathoner and she is training hard to take her racing to the next level this fall with TWO back to back marathons. In this conversation, we talk about Brooke's entry into the sport, her summer training, the group of women that push each other in marathon workouts and more. In the second half, we have a lot of fun chatting about the best of Kansas City, Missouri from Brooke's perspective. 

BBQ, anyone?
