Moving2Live is a podcast about movement and exercise for professionals and aficionados. We also have Movement is a Lifestyle Features. Each week, we publish a brief highlight of a 2- or 4-legged mover…someone who understands that movement is a lifestyle…not just an activity. The questions are lightly edited to allow for easy readability. Click MIAL Features for more info if you want to be featured/know someone who should be featured.
