Socialing The Distance

with Larry Eder

Featuring Grant Holloway,

60m Hurdle Indoor World Record Holder

110 Hurdle World Outdoor Leader

This new Socialingbthe Distance is with Grant Holloway. Just a few minutes after Grant's victory at the 110m hurdles, he did his victory lap with Devon Allen and Daniel Roberts. We decided to do another interview. With his travels, we put the interview together on July 19. In this interview, we covered a myriad of topics. Enjoy the interview! Thanks to Grant Holloway (and his agents, John Regis and Ramon Clay) on putting together the interview. Thanks to Mike Deering/ The Shoe Addicts, who is our production manager for #Socialing the Distance.
