Bekele Doesn't Bomb, London Is This Weekend, and A Guy Who Sat Next to Molly Seidel on a Plane

2 months ago

39 year-old Kenenisa Bekele finished the Berlin marathon, but only in 3rd place, what does it mean for his future? A loaded London Marathon is this weekend, we start to take a look at the fields.

We end by talking talk to a guy @63:14 (NCAA steeplechaser Zach Litoff (@litoffstudios) who sat next to Molly Seidel on her first flight back in the United States after winning her historic bronze medal at the Olympics. He recounts his cool experience, but doesn't get Rojo's $5,000 for being this guy.

Plus a little running ethics, men racing women, and have a tweet of the week from Deena Kastor. Show notes below.
