“Do more of what feels good.” – Liam Lonsdale

Liam Lonsdale is a professional photographer, trail runner and father of 2 young kids. He is sponsored by brands like Speedland footwear and PATH projects and we’ve been on several photo and video shoots together.

He is one of the main guys behind The Bandits, a running crew in Oakland, California. We talk about advise for runners looking to connect more with others, how to find a running group near you, or how to start one.

We cover running equipment, overcoming challenges in training, racing and life.
