Knox Robinson ran competitively at Wake Forest before moving to New York to work in music, where he managed indie artists and served as editor-in-chief of the music culture magazine, The Fader.
Following the birth of his son he returned back to running, in a big way. He is a coach of Nike+ Run Club in New York City, captain and co-founder of Black Roses NYC run collective and a top 100 finisher in the New York City Marathon.
We spoke about the time he spent with Dr Maya Angelou at university, we also discussed his running journey. It was a real privilege talking and learning from him. You can follow him on Instagram under @FirstRun
