Outstanding

I was late in finding this podcast but I’m glad I did. It’s now my new favorite running podcast. So good.

My all time favorite podcast

Love listening as they retell/relive their running past. It provides extra motivation on my morning jogs!

An absolute delight!

I read Duel in the Sun, a remarkable book, and was delighted to stumble upon this podcast! It’s both entertaining and informative, and I’ve learned so much about running history during the first running boom. Most importantly, it makes me even more motivated to head off on my morning run and to enter another race!
