This is my daily chat with #RunBlogRun viewers and track fans on track & field!
This is #CoffeeWithLarry for Thursday, February 8, 2024!
#CoffeewithLarry is sponsored by #JAMBAR! JAMBAR is an organic energy bar developed by Jenny Maxwell in 2021. Jenny and her late husband, Brian Maxwell, created the original energy bar PowerBar in 1985. Jenny spent the last two decades raising their children, running, and being a drummer in two rock bands.
