Episode 359: Breaking 2 with Alex Hutchinson of Runner’s World

Alex Hutchinson of Runner’s World joins the show to discuss the Nike initiative to break two hours in the marathon. Alex weighs in on why the three runners were chosen for the project, where there are opportunities to improve the existing world record, the impact the event could have on marathoning in the future and the looming debate over shoe technology in the sport.

After the interview, the guys discuss Galen Rupp’s entry in the Boston Marathon, the retirement of Morgan Uceny and the results of The Bowerman Award.
