Iliass Aouani, the new Italian record holder in the marathon, joins us @78:50 in the Where Your Dreams Become Reality Segment to talk about his rise to the top of Italian marathoning from his triumph and struggles at Syracuse where he set the ACC record at 10,000m, but also was dropped from the NCAA XC team his senior year. *Link Syracuse XC and Sweet Road

Prior to that we break down Zane Robertson's huge EPO bust and try and analyze what it means. Robertson left New Zealand at the age of 17 to train in Kenya.

We break down the NYC half marathon, Rojo ponders whether Jacob Kiplimo could be better than Eliud Kipchoge, what's up with Galen Rupp, Des Linden, and Ben True?
