Episode 2: Running as a Spectator Sport


While the U.S. has experienced a sustained running boom, mainstream media coverage and viewership of the sport has been a bust. In podcast episode 2, Gregg unearths startling data on how poorly the mainstream media covers distance running. We also highlight the Millrose Games, take Chris Lear’s “Running with the Buffaloes” out of the library, and critique the tweets of elites.

  1. Regarding the University of Colorado, I’ve run with someone who ran for Wetmore there. I asked about the book, and he said that Wetmore is forever changing the specifics of his training. High mileage is the rule, which puts runners in a sink-or-swim mode, but the other particulars of “Running with the Buffaloes” are unlikely to be carried over year after year.

    As to streaks, I think they’re silly, and note that Bernard Lagat avoids them.

  2. Howdy! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and fantastic design.
