In episode 7 we have the good fortune to catch up with Patrick Rizzo, the top American finisher (12th overall, in 2:16:10) at the London Marathon. Patrick describes the tense pre-race atmosphere on the heels of the Boston tragedy, hiccups he faced during the race, and running as a pacer in London last year. Rizzo shows a true distance runner’s grit in his attitudes about facing top competition and making a living by running. Elsewhere in the episode, we offer lessons from the spring marathons, Gregg shares exemplary post-Boston writing, and Brenn critiques coverage that fell short. That means you, New York Post.
