Episode 413 - Prof John Brewer


Norway’s Sondre Moen smashes the European marathon record racing to a sub 2:06 in Japan. His coach responds to questions. It’s going to be no pushover for Mo in London as the world’s number one marathoner Eluid Kipchoge announces he’s on the start line. Sarah Hall wins in the US, Paul Robinson runs a crazy mile in Antarctica. Training Talk is with Mario Fraioli, Santa’s Sack is back, Facebook Friday is rough on M&T and Prof John Brewer is talking running a smarter marathon.
