Episode 454 - Damian Hall
On this week’s show the world goes all Kipchoge over a stunning new marathon world record in Berlin. We reflect on an incredible marathon leap forward. Martin is joined by statman Jon Mulkeen to look at the race numbers. Damian Hall is on the couch sharing his amazing UTMB 2018 5th place finish story, Tony's here with an Eliud trial. Holly Rush hosts as Tom’s away tapping his tiny feet somewhere. There’s the usual Facebook Friday, Rate Your Runs, Kit Around the World, Launch Pad, and listener Podium.
