Fisher Leaves Bowerman, Fast Valencia Half, Ingebrigtsen Drama, Spouses of Fast and Famous

7 months ago

Grant Fisher, the American record holder at 3000, 5000, and 10000, has left the Bowerman Track Club. What's next for Grant and Bowerman?

The Ingebrigtsen family feud is now public. What should the solution be in terms of track and field?

Kibiwott Kandie got the win for Kenya at the Valencia Half Marathon in 57:40 as the Ethiopian record books and world top-1o times were re-written left by Yomif Kejelcha finishing second in 57:41.

Why aren't Americans running faster in the half marathon? And how many Americans will qualify for the Olympic Marathon? The Road to Paris list is out.

We end @ 85:23 with a new segment Spouses of the Fast and Famous, and our guest is Kate Kodet, wife of Andrew Brick Johnson, the composer of the LetsRun.com intro music, and who turns 40 today. Happy Birthday Andrew.
