Episode 49: Oh, Canada


In his first marathon since a sacral stress fracture postponed his quest for Cloud 2:59, Gregg braved the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. He offers a race report under intense grilling from his co-host. We highlight the top performances at that race, discuss the mysteries of ideal pacing, give a few shout-outs to listeners, and take a look at the elites who will be running the New York City Marathon on November 6. And Gregg mentions the T-word.


Episode 31: Desiree Linden and the NYC Marathon

We’re joined by Desiree Linden in episode 31, just days after her fifth place finish at the New York City Marathon. The uber-cool elite describes her windblown NYC race and outlines the Hansons-Brooks training approach that turned the 2:44 debutante into a 2:22 runner and one of the world’s best. Elsewhere, we recap pros who took flight in the fall marathon season, those whose wings were clipped, and a few missing in action. Brenn details his NYC race where the proof was in the pudding, and Gregg gets on the soapbox to draw inspiration from a race walker.
