Episode 182 - Graham Poll


We ask you to run a single mile as fast as you can. The 2013 Magic Mile is ready to go! We speak to top English football referee Graham Poll about training, running and football. We look back at a cracking Diamond League 5000m finish and a super hard mountain vertical km. You rate your run, there’s a young winner, and Tony brings us his trials.
