Buzz and Corrine chat about Buzz’s skyrace experience in Norway. Then Corrine interviews Zoë Rom and Tina Muir about their new book, Becoming a Sustainable Runner: A Guide to Running for Life, Community, and Planet.

“A healthy planet depends on your thriving and your community’s thriving. Your running depends on a healthy planet and a healthy community. A healthy community depends on healthy individuals and a healthy planet to exist,” said Zoë.
