CITIUS MAG staff writer Paul Snyder joins the podcast after I slept on his couch for 10 nights on a short little training/fun stint in Flagstaff, Arizona. Paul is one of the site’s best writers and is best known for his article on “A Presidential Race: What if every U.S. president raced a 5K fun run?” or “7 “The O.C.” Memes Only Middling College Distance Runners Will Understand” He was once name-dropped by Malcolm Gladwell on Bill Simmons’ podcast and he’s been quoted in Competitor as the brain child behind the cult-phenomenon that has become the Blue Jeans Mile. Paul is a legend.
Paul and I discussed how he arrived in Flagstaff, what his running aspirations are after competing at Columbia for four years, how he’s found the writing side of running and much more. Paul was a teammate of Johnny Gregorek and Kyle Merber so there’s some fun college stories shared there as well.
