This is part one of an intervew we did at Concord-Carlisle HIgh School in January 2017, prior to the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix. Donavan Brazier is represented by Global Athletics & Marketing's Mark Wetmore, and sponsored by Nike. Donavan trains at Texas A & M with Alleyne Francique, a two time World Indoor 400m champion (2004 and 2006), plus 4th in the 2004 Olympic 400 meters.

Donavan Brazier does not run longer than 7 miles in a training run, and this winter broke 4 minutes for the mile and came back, running a 46 second 400 meter on the 4x400m relays. Francique impresses on Brazier the need for speed in the 800 meters.

Here is Donavan speaking to @runblogrun's Larry Eder about being a professional athlete and running on the boards. Special thanks to the Shoe Addicts for the production and recording.
