Broadcasting From Studio 1A
Chris Farley, owner of Pacers Running, along with his college running teammate, William E Docs, and Pacers DC Manager, Joanna E Russo, record weekly episodes of the Pace the Nation podcast.
They attract a range of guests from elite runners to everyman runners alike and share great stories.
The show has a local focus and centers on a DC runner’s perspective on running. But, the interviews and discussions uncover the connections between all runners, providing inspiration through common understanding of what it means to be a runner.
The hosts wield varied perspectives from within and without the running industry and blend humor, wit, and insight as they tell the untold stories of runners and provide a peak behind the curtain of the running community in DC and beyond.
