Ru El's Running Podcast special guest is a new friend. I met him
though the Vinnie Tortorich No Sugars No Grains FB group. We seem
to have some things in common, but he’s way cooler. I’ve referred
to him as Rawdog and I’m honestly not sure how
he feels about that monicker, but we’ll find out. Friends I’m
excited to have Chris Rawlins on the podcast.
Chris is 43, lives in Georgia, and single father of three.
- Tae Kwon Do instructor.
- Survival self-defense training instructor.
- Runs a lot.
Tournament Fighting & Injury
- Motorcycle track riding, broken collar bone, shoulder blade and
- Recovery and lack of conditioning.
