Jeanne Mack takes over the CITIUS MAG Podcast to put me in the guest position for once. Maybe we should’ve done this at the start of the podcast so that listeners can get to know me better but here we are. I turn 25 on Sunday, Sept. 25. Before I start this quarter-life crisis, Jeanne asked to interview me and so we sat down in a park to chat about my background.
This episode delves into how I got started in track and field as a sprinter at Xavier High School in New York City. Was I any good? (Spoiler: No) How did I gain interest in distance running? What spurred me to start running distance? Jeanne asks about my professional life as a writer for Sports Illustrated and then how I came about with the idea to start CITIUS MAG.
What’s the story behind #LegsAreFeelinGood? What’s the hope for the future of CITIUS MAG? How can the readers and listeners help out?
There’s a lot to unpack in this episode so it’s a bit longer than usual. We sat down and then realized that we had been recording for at least 80 minutes. Enjoy this pod at your leisure. Let me know what you think by tweeting at me: @ChrisChavez.
Stay tuned for a special announcement in the middle of the show.
