Hello. Friend of the MAG Kyle Merber and I meet up in Brooklyn to chat about the 2018 HOKA One One Long Island Mile, which will be held on September 5th at Bay Shore High School. Chris was supposed to be in attendance for this podcast taping but he decided to skip it for a BBQ. Please shame him by tweeting at him, @ChrisChavez. We still taped the podcast and enjoyed a pie of L&B Spumoni Gardens
