Episode 91 - Scott Overall


In last week's Berlin Marathon GB athlete Scott Overall finished in 5th place and achieved the Olympic A standard time with 2:10:55. Scott talked Martin through his rather special first marathon. Tom didn't have a baby, but did get out foxed at Leeds parkrun... Kenya selected two of their three Olympic marathon men, creating perhaps the most competitive qualification process in history... and someone nicked Tony's bottle... again!
