About
A running podcast from Believe in the Run, The Drop is brought to you by hosts Thomas Neuberger, Robbe Reddinger, and Meaghan Murray. But this isn't your typical running podcast– we'll talk about running (of course), but also discuss a wide range of topics, from pop culture to pigeons (not real) to picking up trash here in Baltimore. We also interview elite athletes, industry insiders, musicians, coaches, and more. Follow along as we also discuss our own running highs and lows, as well as our favorite shoes and gear.

264 | Matt Niutta, Fractel Founder

Keeping cool is key in the summer months and your running hat has a lot to do with it. Robbe talks to Matt Niutta, founder of Fractel, an Australian-based headwear brand looking to make the best products for runners. One of those products is the Fractel x BITR Robbe Raccoon Signature Legionnaire (available now!). This is more of a fireside chat than a business talk, mostly because Robbe is primarily concerned with the state of Australian wildlife, so stick around for that sort of stuff.Snag the Robbe Raccoon Signature Legionnaire at 6 p.m. ET on Monday, June 3: https://shop.believeintherun.com/Shop Fractel: https://fractel.us/

262 | Bobby Imamura, Teacher and ALS Running Partner

After a late start to running, Los Angeles math teacher Bobby Imamura became hooked on marathons, just like the rest of us. But at one point, he wasn't sure why. Until he started running with ALS (formerly known as Lou Gherig's disease) athletes, and seeing their goals become his own. Along the way, with the support of Tata Consultancy Services, they nearly broke the world record for running a marathon with a wheelchair while making an impact on all those around him. In April, Bobby finished the London Marathon for his sixth and final star of the Abbott World Marathon Majors.Watch Bobby's documentary on YouTube: https://youtu.be/JwaFDStDb0I

We almost split this into two podcasts, but instead, you get the whole rundown in one shot (for better or for worse). We went up to Boston, we had an absolute blast with our New Balance group run and meet and greet on Friday, and Saturday our mind-blowing Asics run and cap giveaway on Sunday, and of course– the crown jewel of running, the 128th Boston Marathon, thanks to Adidas. There were moments of pure joy and others of slight regret. It all came together for an unforgettable weekend that we'd do a hundred times over if we could.

199 | We Asked Emma Bates to Drink Post-Chicago Marathon Martinis in Our Hotel and She Said 'Yes'

Emma Bates ran the Chicago Marathon, and Meg ran the Chicago Marathon, so that seemed like a pretty good reason to have martinis in our hotel room together while recapping the race. Obviously, it was a pretty good time.

195 | Brian Beckstead, Altra Co-Founder

At a time when every shoe was over 10 mm in drop, Brian Beckstead and Golden Harper came along and took an idea from zero to, well... zero drop. Since then, Altra has become a staple brand in the running, walking, and hiking scenes, known for its footshape shoes and focus on a natural running lifestyle. However, everything has changed with the all-new 4 mm drop AltraFWD Experience. Does it matter? We ask Brian about that, the history and future of the brand, and what it's like to fly fish in South America.

194 | AltraFWD Experience, Berlin Breakdown, Post-Run Freak Faces

First things first, let's talk about Kipchoge's dual snot rivers that rivaled the outflow of the Tigris and Euphrates. Then we'll talk about his win in Berlin and Assefa's dismantling of the women's world record. From there, we get into how horrible our faces look after a run, whether or not we're just perpetually injured but used to it, and wonder if Baltimore rats are getting into Meg's collagen stash. Lastly, we touch on the AltraFWD Experience, a 4 mm drop shoe that's... a shoe. If this episode doesn't help you nail your peak long run for this fall marathon cycle, then you may as well just quit running.

Sorry to those who aren't baseball fans, but the Orioles made the playoffs, so we take some time to acknowledge the only real birds that exist in the world. Then we get into the usual randomness and try and figure out if Thomas got placebo drunk at a Guns 'n' Roses concert in 1992. Also, Meg has a minor setback three weeks out from Chicago. In shoe talk, we discuss the $500 Adidas Adizero Adios Pro Evo 1 and, on the opposite side of the spectrum, the $120 carbon-plated Atreyu Race Model.Get our thoughts on the Adidas Evo 1: https://believeintherun.com/adidas-adizero-adios-pro-evo-1/Read our review of the Atreyu Race Model: https://believeintherun.com/shoe-reviews/atreyu-race-model-review/

After a tame time in Boulder, we're back in the wild, folks. That means we talk about everything from Meg's new gambling addiction (jk... maybe) to rat trapping in Baltimore to why it's absolutely criminal that Matthew Lillard wasn't nominated for an Oscar for his flawless portrayal of Shaggy in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Think about it though: he really was robbed. Oh, we also talk about the Adidas Boston 12 and why it's finally come around to the greatness it once was.
