This week on the Lift Heavy Run Long® Podcast we had the pleasure of sitting down with Peter Mellen. Peter is an avid st. Jude supporter, passionate runner, aspiring running coach and race director for the fortitude trail race 50k/25k event. He is taking over the Stanky Creek Race in September which was formerly directed by Mike Samuelson. Peter’s daughter, Olivia, is a patient at St. Jude and the treatment that Peter and his family have received has inspired him to set a goal of raising $100,000 for the organization in 2020.

Peter is a great guy who places emphasis on community and the friendship which comes about through running and trail events. We hope you tune-in and enjoy the show!
