In this week's episode, Ryan and Alex sit down with the Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey. Frey, a William & Mary alum, ran professional for Hansons-Brooks and Saucony after college and through 2008. Frey represented team USA at the 2007 PanAm Games where he finished 4th in the marathon (one spot from bronze medal), ran at the Olympic Marathon Trials and holds a marathon PR of 2:16. Frey talks about his transition from runner to Mayor and also speaks not only about how running plays a role in his personal life today, but how it has help shaped some of the decisions he has made for Minneapolis during the coronavirus pandemic. The Mayor discusses how he approaches tough daily decisions during this pandemic and also gives insight on what it was like to be on the receiving end of tweets from President Trump.
