Episode 5: "Giving Back" with Jorge Garcia

Episode 5: "Giving Back" with Jorge Garcia, on reaching his 50 state/100 marathon goal, on being part of a "running family" in his community and across the globe; from Antarctica to South Africa, and giving back to that family by hosting others and being a "race pacer"!  He discusses his motivation and highlights from his 50 state journey, as well as the 7 marathons on 7 continents challenge. We also explore what being a marine brought to his running and why it motivates him to be a part of building community. This episode is truly inspirational, as Jorge provides us with an invitation to use negative experiences as motivation and find ways to transform them into something positive...
