Episode 42: Breaking the Mold

An interview with Mirna Valerio, who at 245 pounds doesn’t necessarily conform to the conventional idea of what a runner should look like. But the body she has is capable of carrying her over epic distances. (2:05)

In the Kick, some extra proof that running isn’t bad for your long-term health, the story behind a runner’s Matthew Centrowitz tattoo, and a race 650 feet below the earth’s surface. (1:10:42)
