On this episode of Le Run Down I had a great chat with plant-based Ultra Endurance Athlete, Robbie Balenger. Simply put, Robbie loves to run and push his limits.He's conquered the run across America in 75 days and most recently crushed the fastest known time for loops around central park in 24 hours. His accomplishments are remarkable but the message he carries about making better food choices and creating more sustainable food sources is just as incredible.
