We start 2021 off with a bang by welcoming the Mayor of Running, Bart Yasso, to Run Local Wednesday on Instagram Live! J.T. Service finds out what 5 things he wished he knew when he started running to help support all the new runners out there on their own journey as well as how to golf in the freezing cold.
