Golden Harper was in town and took the opportunity to hit up a local run specialty store and talk shop with some trail runners. Golden stopped by the New England Running Company in Beverly, MA during an open house that focused on the store’s new expanded trail running space. There were representatives from several area clubs there in attendance, along with a couple of former Team USA competitors: Julie Menosky (mountain) and Christy Cosgrove (ultra).
Golden gave a very informative, entertaining presentation that covered the Altra backstory and also went over some of his own personal running history. Afterwards, we sat down with him to go into a little more detail about the brand and some of the conflicting research out there on running shoes.
