Coffee check, running check, Friday morning coffee time with fellow runners on a Friday morning TRIPLE CHECK. Every Friday morning Jamal Davis brings our running community together one coffee conversation at a time as he introduces us to fellow everyday runners that are just like us in the run community with his show Coffee Posse Live. It’s a very good way to start the weekend while also setting a wonderful tone on a Friday. This month we decided to highlight the spot-lighter, the guy that spotlights everyone else on Coffee Posse Live, we figured why not interview the interviewer himself Jamal Davis. Jamal Davis gives us a peek into his running journey, his triathlons and tells us what inspires him to keep those feet moving and keeping his fitness up to par.

Sometimes it’s to stay fit. Others it’s to reach a specific goal. Whatever it is, I know that it’s helping me move forward to being the best that I can be for that given time.
