This episode is recorded live in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts when host Matt Sorenson joined Jason Savageau for a relaxing run along the Charles River. Jason works as a social security disability attorney and is active in the visually impaired and blindness communities. He started running in 2015 after being fed up with how he felt and has since lost 75 pounds and has run seven half marathons. We talk about how his visual impairment affects him as a runner, the importance and impact of the running community, and the impact the bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon affected Jason and the Boston community. Jason shares how he is preparing to train for his first marathon with goals of running the Boston Marathon in 2019. We also talk about donuts and beer, the November Project, Summerville Brewing, the Slumbrew Happy Soles and Achilles International Boston.
