Kipchoge in Boston, Sha'Carri 10.57, Arcadia, Camille Herron (Guest) on Ultra Running Greatness

1 year ago

Ultra marathon star Camille Herron who recently crushed the women's world record for 48 hours (and set the men's American record as well) and has the world records from 50 miles to 48 hours (270 miles) joins us at 90:44 to talk about her recent 48 hour world record and ultra marathon career.

Prior to that we discuss Sha'Carri Richardson's 10.57 100m, wonder if Mo Farah is done, try and save the sport, talk a little Arcadia high school action and then have our first mini Boston Marathon Preview.

Eliud Kipchoge is the first male world record holder to run Boston since the 1950s and it's going to be epic. How will he handle the hills and Evans Chebet and Benson Kipruto? Who is the women's favorite?
