USA Running Hall of Fame Member Larry Rawson was gracious enough to take time from his busy schedule to be our guest on this weeks show. Larry is nothing short of a legend in the sport of Cross Country and Track. From announcing 47 National Championships, to 7 Summer Olympics, to being the only announcer in the Penn Relays Hall of Fame, Larry has been the voice of running in America for nearly 40 years.
His journey from growing up in Newton, MA to being one of the most recognizable voices on television has been nothing short of remarkable. We are so excited that he has been good enough to share his story and his insights on what made him [and what makes others] successful.
Larry discusses the following with us: how important it is to take risks / how he has dealt with pressure / how he addresses challenging situations that take place on and off the air / how his childhood helped lead him to his career / the values of hard work / how running helps young people with their confidence and academics
