Pav & Sam met while competing for Boston University’s D1 Track & Field team. Their competitive fire and passion for the sport enabled them to develop a strong friendship. Despite living on opposite sides of the country, they have maintained a lively debate over iMessage on subjects relating to athletics and health, in attempt to distill and understand the tenets of success in athletics and most importantly in life.
