Keitany Retires, Suspicious Sprint Times, Flojo, Bekele in Berlin, Super Shoe Study, Jordan Hasay, and the Guy Trying to Make Running Shoes in France
Florent Beng of Relance is our guest
We take you around the running world and then talk to Florent Beng (65:35), the co-founder of Relance, the running shoe company actually making a running shoe in France. (It's super stylish, has red, white and blue colors, and its kickstarter is here). Review of shoe by Japan Running here.
Trayvon Bromell and Ferdinand Omanyala ran fast in Kenya and that got us into some Omanyala, Marcell Jacobs, and Flojo talk. Then we turned to marathon news and the retirement of legend Mary Keitany, before discussing Kenenisa Bekele's chances in Berlin this weekend. Then a little Jordan Hasay and Boston talk, a New York update and our talk with Florent Beng.
