This is my daily chat with #RunBlogRun viewers and track fans on all things track & field!

This is #CoffeeWithLarry, our almost daily podcast on all things track and field by #RunBlogRun.

Coffee with Larry is sponsored by Jambar, the original organic artisan energy bar from Jenny Maxwell. Jenny and her late husband Brian invented the entire category way back in 1985 and sold the Powerbar company in 2000.
