VIDEO: Jarick Walker and Sidney Baptista talk about race

When we opened Heartbreak Studio in Cambridge, MA in 2016, we went after the most talented and dynamic community leaders we could find. Tops on the list were Jarick Walker and Sidney Baptista. As expected, they were ace coaches in the studio keeping people hyped, making them faster, and making it fun. A lot has changed in their lives since then. Jarick moved to LA to support its running community with Nike brand marketing and is now at the NFL where he helped push the league to take its stronger anti-racism stance (yeah, he did that). Sid founded Pioneers Run Crew in April 2017, a group whose mission is getting more black and brown people moving and connecting through running and fitness by bringing the action out of Back Bay and into the neighborhoods. The long time friends decided to address the moment we're in with a really honest and personal conversation about race via Instagram Live. Watch parts 1 and 2 below:
