This week, we’re joined by two members of one of the newest professional running groups on the scene, the Mission Run Baltimore Distance group sponsored by Under Armour. Willy Fink and Casey Comber are two of the big stars in that group and they came on the show to talk about the big rebrand and what it means for Under Armour’s investment in track and field.
We talked about the story behind the “mission run” branding, got into the debate over the different styles of 1500-meter racing, and they shared what it’s like to live and train in Baltimore under coach Cory Leslie. Plus, we tease the possibility of a postseason Under Armour beer mile, which sounds like it could be a lot of fun. You can follow Casey, Willy, and Mission Run Baltimore Distance on Instagram to follow along with their journey as they gear up for USAs in a few weeks.
