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)

What it looks like and sounds like long after the crowds have gone, the barricades have been removed, and the timing clock has stopped at the end of the biggest marathon in the world. (47:03)

In the Kick, recapping turkey trots, a sub-three hour marathon while pushing 180 pounds, how to get 1 percent faster in your races, and the running phrase even Mo Farah can’t escape. *(58:51)
