Leo Daschbach Sub 4 in a Real Race, Pro Runner Wedding Bells, London Marathon in Doubt, LRC's Big Poker Win

4 months ago

A high schooler went sub 4 during the COVID19 shutdown.

Despite the COVID shutdown high schooler Leo Daschbach ran sub 4 in the Quarantine Clasico in California with a tremendous final lap to become the 11th high schooler in the US in the sub 4 club. Pros Nick Symmonds and Leah O'Connor got married (not to each other), Rojo discusses Des Linden's body fat percentage, we learn about the 6 figure poker win that helped fuel LetsRun.com, break down the Impossible Games, and discuss if all big city marathons are in trouble in 2020. Plus what is the best way to recover after a hard interval and does a belief in god help pro runners?
