For all you 5K-heads out there, this one’s for you. Sydney Gidabuday of Roots Running finished in third place at the 5K National Championships in New York City a few weeks ago. Not only is he a pure stud, but he’s also a great guy with a great story, and you’re really gonna root for him after this interview. We talk about tearing up the competition at Adams State University, his path to Roots, sit-n-kick versus all-out race strategies, running with glasses, hip hop, and so much more (24:50). The gang also breaks down new shoes from Diadora and Altra, as well as Stef Flippin’s title defense at the Tunnel Hill 100.
