Health & History in the Boogie

Meet Bronx Sole, a running group fusing fitness and BX history. BC joined one of their weekly runs through the BX, which included a stop at Gleason's, the iconic boxing gym which has trained fighters such as Jack "The Bronx Bull" LaMotta, Benny Paret, Phil Terranova, Cassius Clay, and jazz legend Miles Davis.
