Ep.101 || Alia Armstrong | Reflecting on a Dream Season | 4th Place at World Champs | When Outsiders' Faith Becomes Your Own Faith | 2022 NCAA Champion

Alia Armstrong, who finished 4th place in the 100m hurdles at the World Championships, joined your favorite 2 Black Runners for an interview about her dream 2022 season. Her season may have started with a false start at the NCAA indoor championships but she ended it as a NCAA Champion and  a World Championship Finalist. This is a special podcast because the Potts brothers know Alia's family, plus Joshua and Alia went to the same middle school together.
