-Is Dickson Chumba now a threat to beat Wilson Kipsang and Eliud Kipchoge?
-Why did the women run faster than last year?
-Is Luke Puskedra the hope for America’s marathoning future?
-Can Deena Kastor qualify for the Olympics?

  1. Hi Guys:
    I haven’t been sending you any emails or voice mails and don’t do Twitter. But I wanted this to accompany the donation I recently sent you. I have enjoyed you podcast a lot and you really increased my enjoyment of the 2015 outdoor track season! So thanks again, here’s some early Christmas cash or late diaper cash. Rob
