All the bitbits

Grab yourself a vegan milkshake, settle down, then stand up, throw the milkshake at a racist, and then settle down for a weekly slice of fitness, running, and tech. It's a running heavy episode this week. Sorry tech fans. Nick has a 10k PB, despite being at the wrong location, Jon has been running with kids, and we welcome the season of disgusting sweaty summer runs. * [Find us on Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/you-don-t-look-like-a-runner-445740) * [Tell us things on Twitter](https://twitter.com/runnerpod) ...
