2019 Boston Marathon: Cherono Wins Mad Sprint, Degefa Cruises, Jordan Hasay is BAACK, Scott Fauble AND Jared Ward Sub 2:10 + The People's Champ & Who Was the Best Celebrity Runner?

We recap everything Boston Marathon starting with Lawrence Cherono's sprint victory over Lelisa Desisa, then we talk about Scott Fauble and Jared Ward going sub 2:10 for America (21:28), before looking at Worknesh Degefa's dominance, Jordan Hasay's great run and pondering whether she is America's best marathoner (35:00). Plus listener audio on Rojo and Scott Fauble (44:40), a look at who was the best 3 hour or celebrity marathoner in Boston: Joan Benoit Samuelson, NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, 71 year old Gene Dykes, Wired editor Nicholas Thompson, or convicted murderer Markelle Taylor (54:54)? We talk with the men's "open" winner in Boston Stephen VanGampleare (71:45) and end by looking at the curious doping case of Clemence Calvin who set the pending French national record in marathon (80:00).
