    S3E34: The Marathon Project

    Happy holidays! This episode is centered all around discussion of The Marathon Project. We talked about what this means for the future of elite racing and whether the possible changes are a good or a bad thing, how media might (and should) change to increase visibility and accessibility for the sport, and highlighted individual performances.

    S3E32: A Tale of Two Bannings

    This one's got a little bit of everything! Track, road, trail, ultras, teams getting cut, teams getting restored and a nice little compare/contrast in the way two different people handled bans for similar reasons.

    S3E31: A Quarterback, Heptathlete, Javelinist, and Sprinter Walk On To A Track

    S3E31: A Quarterback, Heptathlete, Javelinist, and Sprinter Walk On To A Track

    Pretty sure "javelinist" isn't a word but it sounds pretty fancy. We talked about a lot of races and a little bit about doping! Alex had a shoe review and something else and then about halfway in things went off the rails a little bit, but in a good way.

    S3E30: A Real Marathon Major Kind Of!

    S3E30: A Real Marathon Major Kind Of!

    How 'bout that London Marathon? That's right! It's the London recap episode where we talk about a handful of other things that happened before London and then talk about the main event! We talked hippo attacks, a $25M college XC course, and a few other things before we dove into London. But get stoked because we have an actual real WMM result to talk about for the first time since Tokyo.

    PS: We're available on Amazon Music/Audible now if that matters to you!

    S3E29: The Apology Episode

    It's been a while since we recorded an episode, but we finally got a chance to sit down and talk. Some of it is even about running! And shoes and our running and other stuff too. We're going to try to be better, just hang with us, please.
