Episode 391 - Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson (Part Two)
On this week’s show we chat about the British Athletics Championships, Mo Farah and reflect on Nike’s Breaking2 project. Yuki runs the Gold Coast Marathon, and Preston want a Ben Ashworth way. Plus you guys Rate Your Run, stand atop the Podium, and rock your kit all around the world and we’ve got the second part of our Brave Athlete interview with Prof Simon Marshall and 3 time-world champion xterra triathlete Lesley Paterson.
