Episode 31: Running and Literature

An interview with Roger Robinson, an author, journalist, professor emeritus of literature, running historian, longtime contributor to Runner’s World, and a competitive masters runner. (3:16)

Plus, we explore the beautiful intersection between the sport of running and great literature. (38:28)
