How do Runners make sense of Run-commuting as a Mobile Practice (Pt2)? Dr Simon Cook - Meaningful Sport Series
This is the second part of our episode on run-commuting with Dr Simon Cook. Today, the conversation moves to explorations of the meanings and experiences of run-commuting, running as sustainable transport and the future potential of run-commuting as a mobile practice. We also hear about Simon’s current research on running during social distancing.
If you haven’t listened to the first part yet, you'll find it here.
