RunBlogRun presents Socialing The Distance with Larry Eder featuring Coach Lance Brauman, PURE Athletics

I have been lucky enough to know Lance since 2012. I have found him to be a man who combines the art and science of coaching. He is a man not prone to, well hyperbole (my Dad would have said, "Lance is a no b.s. kind of guy"). Lance is a technical coach, the man can break down the 100m into basic movements, and help the athlete improve the game.

Most importantly, Lance Brauman is a man of integrity. His life experiences have shaped into the man, the coach, the father, the husband he is today.

In Clip #2, we asked Lance on his comments on COVID's Effect on Athlete Motivation.

Special thanks to Lance Brauman. Special thanks to Mike Deering and Adam Johnson-Eder, aka The Shoe Addicts, who managed and produced this interview for RunBlogRun.
