RRCA Interviews at the 106th Drake Relays with Gary Morgan, from RunningNetwork Tv

| 0 Comments
Running Network TV has been doing digital programming and content for over ten years now. Working with Gary Morgan has been some of my favorite times in the sport. Running Network TV has been championed by Art & Jenny McCafferty of MichiganRunner magazine. 

Gary Morgan is a 1988 Olympian at 20k race walk. The man has defied death, and is a pacer to 25 or so races a year. Gary is known as Mr. Ubiquitous, and his followers are legion. What do people like about Gary?

Well, his view of the world, his joie de vivre, his love of the sport and his always positive attitude. When he fell of Mt. Hood in 2012, and showed up three days later in Hayward Field, I knew that god had a sense of humor and an affection for that crazy race walker.

Traveling with Gary in China and other worlds is always an adventure. I have been with him in Korea, China, Japan, Great Britain. But I have not hitch hiked with him in Korea to Buddhist temples, as others have. Those stories are, well, EPIC. Not Games of Thrones EPIC, but Gary Morgan EPIC. 


Please check out the weekly programming, which gives you a birds' eye view into the world of core running, our world at the Running Network! 

This programming is on the Drake Relays and the RRCA Convention, our partners with Club Running Magazine. 

To paraphrase a favorite tome on Frank Sinatra: It's Gary's World, we just live in it. 

Watch these videos and you will understand.

David Oliver, Ajee Wilson, Dawn Haper Nelson, Demi Payne, LaShawn Merritt, Kirani James, Chanelle Price, Alysia Montano and Derek Drouin.

Morgan also tan into the Spirit of the Marathon Director Jon Dunham  to see what he was up to.  Dunham's film on the Chicago Marathon was a bench mark in the road running movement.
